Lou Dobbs has to be putting on an act. While there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that he loathes anyone who isn't lily-white, taking aim at the Koch Brothers when they share so much in common and so few differences seems ridiculous and stupid.

It is true that the Kochs fund the Libre Initiative. It's one of the organizations they use to bring Latino voters over to the dark side. And supporting the DREAM Act was not really that controversial, given that the beneficiaries of the act were brought here as children by their parents and didn't actually stand up in their cribs and demand they immigrate to the United States before they could talk.

I found this short rant to be just bizarre for any number of reasons, not the least of which is Dobbs' reference to them as "globalists," when he also works for a "globalist." The idea of the Kochs being pro-open borders is laughable -- they're the ones with long-standing ties to the very racist John Birch Society.

And yet, here's old Lou spewing at them anyway. I'm all for internecine winger wars, but is that really what this is?

The pro-amnesty, pro-open borders globalist Koch Brothers praising the House Democrats and the seven House Republicans who voted this week to give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. That bill, well we're told it's unlikely to be taken out by the Senate. But given the behavior of Mitch McConnell i don't think we should accept that assumption.

The Koch backed Libre Initiative saying, "It has to be a new beginning, the start of a discussion of how to move legislation through the House and Senate and have it signed by the president. We're thankful to lawmakers who support this important effort."

Well, not many people are thankful to the Koch Brothers for their open borders amnesty, pro-amnesty positions and financing of all efforts in that direction.

Can you help us out?
