Offlogic, 10/27/2010 - 6:44am "The good doctor's credentials explain his rather bizarre views.
The "Center for Vision and Values", where he is a "professor of political science and Fellow for American Studies", is a well known front for the Koch Brothers stealth campaign to buy and subvert the political process.
The Charles G. Koch Foundation's website proclaims: "The mission of the Center for Vision & Values is to create a multi-faceted, interactive learning community to strengthen the faith and freedom foundation of the United States of America and advance liberty around the world".
Compare that stated aim with the outlandish opinions and ridiculously flawed facts in just the first few paragraphs of Folkertsma's op-ed: progressives = socialists, wanting to render free elections irrelevant, projections referencing "1984", etc. If the Koch's want to finance deception and obfuscation to achieve their own less than admirable political ends, well, they could try to be a little more up-front as to their motives. The UTW could stand to be a little more ethical by disclosing the sponsors of op-ed writers they are shills sponsored by those following the "Big Lie" school of propaganda to further the goals of a family with overtly fascist aims.
I'm curious as to why Urban Tulsa would have to go as far as Grove City to find such a confused misrepresentation of American progressive politics when any schizophrenic nut-job on the streets of Downtown (or most local Beck-tards) could rattle off a more varied collection of aspersions, lies and vitriol while rabidly flecking the readership with the same quality of spittle provided by Dr. Folkertsma."
