Divine Miss Conspiracist: Bette Midler asks 'Why are Koch brothers ruining our lives?'

Bette Midler sure has been busy recently. First she jumped aboard the ghoul-train and politicized the Aurora theater shooting. Now, she has moved onto blaming the Koch Brothers for all of her woes. Hey, Bette, what happened to lamely blaming Bush like you did just a scant three months ago? It seems she is giving up on that false narrative and is now entering the Kochtopus Zone. Cue the shadowy music, Divine Miss Conspiracist!

Her cuckoo pants brings out more cuckoo pants. It’s a cycle of nutty!



Fancy cuckoo-speak, but cuckoo nonetheless.

The sane kindly try to explain reality to her.

Bingo. Although, that is hard for the Left to understand since they evidently want to be controlled by the government. Plus, victim-playing is their bread and butter.

Speaking of “trying to buy elections,” what about those unions? And, you know, Ms. Midler herself?

To apply your own standards, Bette: Why are you ruining our lives, filthy Richy Rich Midler?

    Today’s helping of idiocy from aging showfolk!

  • David Paul

    Wow. Midler’s rhetorical question reveals two things about her:

    1). She’s politically ignorant and only half-assedly paying attention to the goings on in Washington and around the country. (Undoubtedly because her “fabulous” lifestyle insulates her from the economic troubles of the majority of Americans)


    2). She is relying on the left-wing filtrations normally associated with low-information voters. She hasn’t bothered to come up with any kind of understanding on her own, so she relies on the self-reinforcing narrative that dominates the world of Hollywood nincompoops: “Those evil Koch Brothers! They are rich AND create things. Why can’t they just be RICH, like me, and not have an informed political opinion!”

    Yet another in a mile-long list of Hollywood idiots using their social status to propagate an ill-informed, left-wing political opinion. It would be comical were it not so dangerous. Yes, people out there — perhaps the 44 million “functional illiterates” of whom Michael Moore mentioned — actually listen to their idiotic commentary.

    These folk are nuts. Hell, they are knocking Rich People to BETTE MIDLER ! Last I heard she was rich too. How many deductions did she claim on her Taxes to save $ from the Tax man. Just curious.

      Last I heard of her career – such as it is – I figure she must have made at LEAST $100 bucks last year.

    Celebrity confuses roles, publicity, and press releases with knowledge, wisdom, and relevance. To be a fully-baked Hollywood celebrity, one must stick one’s head in the Leftist oven till well done and crispy. Only then will the Celebrity Consensus Committee deem one ready to be served up to the public for indoctrination duty. A conservative in Hollywood is as welcome as red meat at a vegan picnic.

    “Who are the Koch Brothers and why are they ruining our lives??”

    Gee, Bette, you don’t know who these guys are, but you KNOW they are ruining “our” lives.

    On the other hand, I know exactly who George Soros is, and I know that he is ruining America. In case you don’t know who he is, Bette, he’s the puppetmaster with his hand up Baraka’s backside.

    Who is Bette Midler and why should I give a crap what she thinks?

    Who is Bette Midler ??

  • Chip

    “Obamawood” strikes again. Like all things coming out of tinsel-town, I smell fiction.

  • ImaBeachBum

    AMAZING about those who bash Koch Industries …… In Kansas, they employ OVER 2000 EMPLOYEES, and you NEVER hear ANYONE talk about “bad employment” ….. NOR do they have a large employee turn over … so WHAT is the problem with someone becoming successful, and PROVIDING employment to so many, with great pay and great benefits ??
    This is America, and we ALL have the opportunity to become successful, and NOT be punished for doing it !!!!
    I chalk this up to another enjoyable actor/actress crossing the political line, and again losing respect for ……..
    She can stand in the same boycott corner with Oprah and others, which really stinks, because I really enjoyed watching “Police Women of Broward County”, but they run it on OWN now, so I REFUSE to watch it ………….
    Yes Bette, you are now in my boycott corner !!

    And Bette Midler and the rest of the “Celeberty Hollywood” Elite aren’t rich because of the rest of us “pions” that go to movies, buy their records, buy their movies when the come out on DVD/Blue Ray etc. Why don’t you give back some of your royalties from all this money given to you by your big time contracts etc to “We the People”, instead of going over to Looney Clooney’s and give huge donations to reelect POTUS. Whom we all know don’t know jack about America and how things really make an economy work. Just think about what would happen to Hollywood if we all stopped going to movies, buying records and DVDs etc, and we all just found a good book to curl up with. OMG life wold be so much better, Bring back Norman Rockwell settings and the day.

    Why do hollywierdos THINK that people give a damn WHAT they think? If people woke up and stopped worshipping idiots, HOLLYWOOD would be out of work.

      Or at least out of politics

    OH my: Dear dear Bette: As a fan, I advise you to stay out of politics or run for office..Many fans are watching..If I had your fame and fortune, I’d be very content and volunteer my services and/or money for a good cause ie:wounded veterans, fallen veteran’s children’s college tuition..(as in the movie-For The Boys) ..After all, they don’t seem to complain much…signed:A Hollywood Brat..

    • Alaskan

      Well said. They just don’t get it.

  • BeeKaaay

    Bette Midler’s song rewritten:

    “Did she ever know that she’s a zero?”

  • SuperstionQueen

    The only way these idiots will survive in the future is if the government FORCES us to fund their lifestyles. As it stands now, I keep a running list of Hollyweirdos I refuse to watch. EVEN if the movie is on television and not in the theater. We all have much more necessary things to spend our money on these days and if we are lucky enough to have a little extra, I’d rather give it to a small business for something I would enjoy. Because…they DID build it.

  • NOTP

    What’s amazing to me is that she asked a rhetorical question which will lead millions of her fans to research the Koch Brothers and maybe discern for ourselves the truth…while you guys sit here on a stupid right wing website called Twitchy bitching and calling her names therefore remaining ignorant and self flagellating. Her Tweet might actually make us think/learn why she posted what she did. Just because you can call someone names doesn’t make you smarter…research does. Whether you are on the left, right, or in the middle, name-calling is not the answer no matter who you are,,,,learning and throwing around solutions/answers is!

    • David Flynn

      Let’s see, you call us names and insinuate that we are ignorant because we already know who the Koch Brothers are while admitting that you had to look them up. And I bet you looked them up on some left wing liberal nut job site just to make certain you didn’t have to deal with information that might run contrary to your agenda. Tell us oh wise one, what is Soros and why is his hand up the backside of Obama?

    Koch brothers political fund: $24 million

    Ford foundation (leftist) political fund: $10 billion

    Tell me why the Koch brothers matter in this matchup?

  • Owen007

    Midler – like so many other Hollywood morons whose best days are long behind them – sure talks a big game about “evil rich people” for someone so rich.

    Guess what? Bette Midler is part of the “tribe”!

  • VHG1

    Someone should ask Bette (from Hawaii right?) how sleeping with George Soros changed her life?

  • http://twitter.com/TeresaNelson5 Teresa Nelson

    It really amazes me how Cher, Roseanne, Bette et al spout off their stupid rants. Don’t they realize they are turning off at least 1/2 the population in this country? I used to like the entertainment they provided, but now wouldn’t drop a nickel to see/hear them perform. I’m sure they’re rich enough not to need my money, but geez, how dumb can you get to turn off so many potential fans?

      Stopped going to most movies — refuse to line a lunatic’s pocket with my hard-EARNED money.

      • Alaskan

        Agreed. The popcorn withdrawal was not easy at first but I’ve survived. However, I’ve made it a point to go to the ones which deserve my $ such as Waiting for Superman, Atlas Shrugged, Monumental, etc., and looking forward to Obama’s America 2016 next week. We’ve got to support those in the entertainment business who are doing the right thing, or it will never change.

  • edward halloran

    Bette who ?

  • $1718659

    On the other hand – we KNOW who George Soros is, and why he is trying to ruin the US via his buddy Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat Socialist Party of the US. The Koch brothers are patriots who remember Jew Soros was a Nazi collaborator during WWII.

    Bette Midler? Her career high point was the “Macaroni Midler” episode of “Seinfeld.” It’s been all downhill since.

    I used to be a fan, but NO MORE! I absolutely REFUSE to support leftist Hollywood elites who think they know what they are talking about, when, in fact, they have NO CLUE! Bette Midler is a prime example. At least the Koch Brothers provide more than 50,000 JOBS which is 50,000 more than Obama has provided!

  • stuckinIL4now

    Oops, when I saw her picture initially I thought it was Joy Behar again–talk about evil twin resemblance. But seriously, how do you give away your power by saying someone else is ruining your life? Guess these libturds really don’t believe in unalienable rights or the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  • James Hatt

    Ms. Midlesr sums up liberal mentality brilliantly here, bravo. “I have no idea who they are but I heard we are supposed to hate them so, like I do.”

    Nothing against the woman, actually kind of a fan but, come on.
