Koch Brothers resegregate schools in North Carolina



Glenn Greenwald has just pissed off the Koch Brothers...again. Seems that they want to sue him for reporting exactly what they are doing, segregating the schools. Wake County, North Carolina has a new Koch approved school board that is voting for "community schools" and ending busing. In other words they want to send the poor back to their poor school and get a inferior education. It didn't work before Thurgood Marshall won the case in 1954 and no one is going to swallow "separate but equal" now. Why are the Koch Brothers, the Tea Baggers, and Americans for Prosperity trying to take the country back to the days of segregation? Union busting, eliminating collective barganing, ending the minimum wage, and now bringing segregation back. Is this what the Tea Party wanted when they said that they want their country back? Back to what, 1954?

Yeah, pre-1954, with a dash of 1933, 1929 and 1850 thrown in.

Kid, they plan to do more than that if the GOP gets back in power. All we can do is try our best to fight and push back and pray.

The Koch brothers obviously long for the good old days.... of Berlin.
