Emboldened by the Hobby Lobby verdict, Koch-funded Generation Opportunity is sponsoring the weirdest carnival ever on the National Mall in Washington DC. Watch that video above. It is the prototype and promotion for this weird and somewhat sickening event.

Via Buzzfeed:

According to Genn Opp leadership, the point of all this is to organize young people with “little bit of creepiness.”

“It’s a seemingly exciting event where all the games are rigged against young people with a little bit of creepiness,” Evan Feinberg, the group’s president, told BuzzFeed. He called the carnival a symbol for Obamacare.

But the carnival isn’t advocating any specific policy or change to the law. It’s just an elaborate, anti-Obamacare roadshow.

“The ultimate goal is to educate and mobilize young Americans to kick the Obamacare disaster out of their towns,” he said, adding that the campaign will build on Gen Opp’s Opt Out campaign, in which the group tried to convince young people not to sign up for Obamacare.

The Kochs' sick obsession with people dying for lack of health care is the creepiest part of all.
