FYI... Hogan is a #KochNetwork and #DarkMoney member. Same group responsible for trump's election, running the WH, GOP and for the agenda we're experiencing right now. tRump is their #TrojanHorse
Fact check!
The #KochNetwork's vast network includes many faux bi-partisan orgs & think tanks. It's part of their "social integration" theory & "web of influence" used to mainstream their people & radical ideology.
PLEASE read up on them & learn to recognize their methods & non profits. ImageImageImage
The press covers Hogan exactly the way trump was covered during 2016....rosy PR without checking or providing important background info

What's really disappointing is observing twitter influencers & journalists doing the same for him and other faux moderates.

Are you taking notes? It's time for all of us to prepare and to "move on them like a bitch".

Don't wait for a leader... no one is coming. Pick up a sign, grab a friend... show up at your city's capitol or even stand at the end of your driveway.

Below is the beginning of a RWing (#Koch, #CNP) disinfo/messaging campaign.The point is to sow discontent...unfair taxation, gov. misusing taxpayer $, public ed syst. is failed experiment,etc.(similar to trump campaign themes) to stir public anger & speak to their base

Thread...
These same talking points (from the article) will be echoed via RWing outlets like FOX, GOP officials at all levels & ultimately by "debate" from the press, academics... both sides.

Don't take the bait. THIS is really about the #KochNetwork & #CNP's attempt to shutter schools
The #KochNetwork often uses subtle "weapons" such starving school budgets, attacking teachers unions, gathering public consensus w/out disclosing their true goals (charters,vouchers), disinfo campaigns to parents & voters, fake lobby/think tanks to mainstream & drive their agenda

Wichita State University (WSU) gets a lot of money from the Koch Brothers.

They're from Wichita so the philanthropy makes sense, but that generosity is being used to shape the policy of public institutions.

That's not charity. That's something else.
WSU recently made headlines after cancelling Ivanka Trump's virtual commencement speech. Koch surrogates were furious.

For people who pretend to distance themselves from Trump, the #KochNetwork sure seemed to care about this empty gesture.

This was the first loyalty test for the new WSU President Jay Golden.

His predecessor, John Bardo, was quite the Koch ally before he retired for health reasons:

“The Kochs never had any real confidence in the presidents... Then we finally got John Bardo in there"

The #KochNetwork, avatar of the tea party, rejects #shutdown protests politi.co/2XX4n4z via @politico AFP board member states “I think there's been a lesson...We saw what we wanted in the #teaparty. It didn’t work out like we’d like. And now we’re much more practical.”
Multiple conservative groups that have been longtime allies of the #KochNetwork network, such as FreedomWorks and #TeaParty Patriots, have led the #shutdown protests. Even the CEO of #ALEC has signed on.
Art Pope, owner of #NorthCarolina politicians, is a co-founder of AFP-NC with David Koch, and often called "Koch Jr". When asked about the #KochNetwork’s position on the current wave of #protests, Pope said “I’ll let them speak for themselves". #NCleg
