5. The tactics of Roy Cohn are exactly the same as trump, libertarians, and all radical conservatives

The following are quotes from the book "Dark Money," by Jane Mayer. The quotes cover two separate instances in the method of libertarian, trumpian, and conservative attacks.

"The man who put his mark on the Olin foundation...was its executive director,Mark Joyce...Joyce was a true radical, inspired by Antonio Gramsci...he wanted to effect radical transformation. 'My style (Joyce said) was the style of the toddler and the adolescent: fight, fight, fight, rest, get up, fight, fight, fight. No one ever accused me of being pleasant. I made a difference. It was acknowledged by friend and foe.' " (page 125)

"In looking back many years later, O'Connell said she regarded the Kochs as dangerous, and still felt uncomfortable talking about them...she recalled, they tried to attack my reputation (while working as an attorney on a case against them brought by the EPA)...they lie about everything, and they get away with it because they're a private company. They obstructed every step of discovery. It was always, 'I didn't do it, it's not our oil, it's not our pipes.' You can't believe anything they say. They definitely don't play the game the way other companies do." (page 155)
