Dick Devos has some scary rich friends!September 18, 2006
There should probably be a comma in that title somewhere. Grammar is not my strong point though. Anyway, Lenin & Co. over at MediaMouse organized my rolodex for me with this new section to their website called “The Far Right in West Michigan“. Of course they get all high and mighty about it saying:
The Far Right in West Michigan examines the West Michigan “far right” and their involvement in political action at the local, state, and national level. The database tracks organizations, individuals, and foundations ranging from explicitly white supremacist groups to anti-gay religious right groups funded by wealthy families such as the DeVos and Prince families. Our broad definition of the far right includes the racist, economic, and religious right and explores the various anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-government anti-abortion, and other such groups activte in West Michigan as well as the individuals that work with them and the foundations that fund them.
Well excuse me Comrade Mouseketeer. I suppose you never donated thousands of dollars to organizations with former members of the Ku Klux Klan on their board or groups that aim to establish Biblical theocratic republics. What? You haven’t?
I suppose you haven’t given hundreds of thousands of dollars to political candidates across the country like Dick Devos has either. Really?
Well, in any case, welcome to “the List”.
