KOCH BROTHERS SLAM ‘ELYSIUM’ FOR REVEALING THEIR PLAN
Outrage among the world’s elite continues to grow over the release of the Neill Blomkampf’s new movie ‘Elysium.’ Starring Matt Damon, the film depicts a dystopian future in which the poor are condemned to live on a planet destroyed by the sociopathic greed of unregulated corporations while the rich dwell in luxury on a vast, orbiting space station that continues to suck whatever raw materials it needs from the dying planet below.
“I’m not sure where on earth the screenwriters got this idea,” said 77-year-old billionaire Charles Koch. “Unless they intercepted the email I sent to my brother that one time I logged on to the internet in a Starbucks.”
Many observers say ‘Elysium’ depicts the natural conclusion of a process that began with the Koch Industries $67 million campaign to deny the effects of climate change, the signing by the GOP leadership of a pledge to the Koch Brothers to do nothing about climate change and the question the top 1% asked themselves: “What’s the point of having $32 trillion in offshore bank accounts if you can’t say ‘fuck the world, I want to get off’ once in a while?”
A spokesman for Koch Industries denied that the design for the orbiting space station depicted in ‘Elysium’ was based on blueprints kept in a safe in the company’s Wichita, Kansas headquarters, then added: ”Now fuck off or I’ll tell Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity to spend the next three months attacking you.”
