Demented, racebaiting has-been Harry Belafonte doesn’t like the Koch Brothers

Okay, okay, that headline isn’t fair. He hates them.

Beth DeFalco and Bruce Golding, NY Post:

Mayoral front-runner Bill de Blasio stood silently by as celebrity booster Harry Belafonte compared the Tea Party-supporting Koch brothers to the Ku Klux Klan inside a Harlem Church on Sunday — then let the inflammatory attack slide as he spoke to the overflow congregation…

Belafonte, 87, viciously tore into billionaire energy moguls and political activists Charles and David Koch as he introduced de Blasio to the virtually all-black audience.

“Already we have lost 14 states in this union to the most corrupt group of citizens I’ve ever known. They make up the heart and the thinking in the minds of those who would belong to the Ku Klux Klan. They are white supremacists. They are men of evil. They have names,” Belafonte said…

“The Koch brothers, that’s their name,” he added.

Harry Belafonte is a crazy old man. Maybe that’s why the next mayor of New York pretended Belafonte didn’t say what he said.

Or maybe de Blasio agrees with him.
