Yes. It WAS. The new name for anti-globalists these days? Why racists of course.

Pretty much world wide. I'm very left but anyone against massive globalization in any country is considered radical and out of the mainstream.

Support for free trade reaches new high in NBC/WSJ poll
Americans are brainwashed by cheap goods and the destruction of society in favor of global cosmopolitan culture.

And when you get so intertwined with other countries it's very hard to unravel yourself.

Koch intended to assemble nearly a $ billion for the Republican nominee in 2016. They held by invitation only audition events for some Republican candidates as they have done in prior elections. When It became apparent, it was going to be Trump, they and their donors withdrew. Instead, they focused money on Republican Congressional races and some state races.

They fund multiple think tanks, including the CATO Institute. Their positions trend Libertarian and focus on free trade and are opposed to Trump’s Wall.

The basic deal is this. All people can be fooled. The Kochs, with the blessing of the GOP, pretty much run our country. That sounds overkill but it is not....

With that power and money comes the ability to tell their think tanks and orgs and lobbyists to start all kinds of groups - including pro-immigration ones like they are now.

The Kochs have invested decades of planning and implementation in first taking over the Republican party...and now pretty much taking over our entire system. The fact that they can fool people...some people some of the time...is not really news.

The real question is why the Republican party - almost down to every individual legislator - has taken their $$$ and become cheerleaders for their goal of a nation with unlimited pollution and no progress?

Are you seriously referencing the same Koch brothers who knowingly employed illegal immigrants?

Feds allege that suburban Chicago’s Koch Foods, whose Mississippi plant was raided by ICE, had history of ‘knowingly hiring and employing illegal aliens'
