SAN ANTONIO, January 29, 2015 – That all too familiar mainstream media reports that the Ferguson protests, which by now have spread all across the nation, are comprised of grassroots Americans who have spontaneously risen up in frustration due to the allegedly racist police and justice system.
It has now become very obvious that this is a complete lie. The community organizers and their sheepish followers that were bussed into Ferguson, incurring costs of travel, lodging, loss of work, from all across the nation were unsurprisingly not self-funded by their own hard-earned savings.
According to the Washington Times‘ Kelly Riddell, the Hungarian-born, radical progressive billionaire George Soros, who is worth approximately 24 billion dollars, has funded the Ferguson protests and riots with at least 33 million dollars since August of 2014.
Riddell reports that Soros paid community organizers of communist inspired groups, like Black Lives Matter, to rile up the black and extreme-left community in order to create as much civil unrest as possible with the ultimate goal of tearing down the heart and soul of America – capitalism and the free market system.
“There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets. Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros…” – The Washington Times
Emphasizing how much of an effect Soros’ funding had on the protests Riddell writes that, “The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.”
Soros has a history of funding groups, organizations and movements that he believes may have a chance to rip the fabric of American society into pieces, in the hopes that the anarchy that is produced therefrom would result in the destruction of the free market and the capitalist system in general.
Soros’ funding begins with the Open Society Foundations (OSF) , which he created in 1993. According to its website, OSF has provided grants totaling over 11 billion dollars since its inception, promoting radical activist groups that encourage the abolition of the current form of American governance.
OSF spent most of 33 million dollars on busing groups of community organizers and their followers to Ferguson, as well as providing food and shelter for the out-of-town rioters, to make sure that the protests and riots continued to surge.
One of these groups that has by all accounts become the defacto leader of the movement is called Black Lives Matter (BLM). BLM’s website is rife with anti-American sentiment focused on destroying our current way of life.
For example, this excerpt is from the article titled, “Black State of the Union,” which is prominently displayed on the BLM homepage:
“This corrupt democracy (America) was built on Indigenous genocide and chattel slavery. And continues to thrive on the brutal exploitation of people of color. We recognize that not even a Black President will pronounce our truths. We must continue the task of making America uncomfortable about institutional racism. Together, we will re-imagine what is possible and build a system that is designed for Blackness to thrive.”
Patrisse Cullors, one of the co-founders of BLM, considers herself to be a community organizer, like President Obama. She is not afraid at all of expressing her militant communism. In an article she recently wrote she stated,
“…we are calling for 2015 to be ‘the year of ungovernability.’ There are not just a few bad apples who do terrible things to black people. We live in a country shaped by racism generally and anti-black racism specifically. We are born into a culture that values whiteness and deems blackness valueless. Our laws, economy, education institutions and legal systems are infected by institutionalized racism.”
On the BLM website, Cullors and her colleagues dictate a list of “demands” that BLM requires in order to stop their destructive behavior. Some of their demands are literally straight out of the Communist Manifesto, including demanding a “full, living wage for all of our people.”
In Cullors article also emphasizes how President Obama, who has a very well documented relationship with Mr. Soros, encouraged the protesters:
“So where do we go from here? The transformation underway in Ferguson is just beginning. “This isn’t just an issue for Ferguson, this is an issue for America,” President Obama said on Monday night. “Communities of color aren’t just making these things up.” We have been reminded that black lives matter, that black people and our allies in protest and reform are prepared to force this country into active recovery – from its ever-present struggle with integrity, from its propensity for violence, from anti-black racism.”
Cullors, just like Obama, is very well versed in using platitudes and generalities without stating any specifics. She and her colleagues at OSF and BLM constantly use buzzwords like, “justice, equality, and human rights,” without any explanation as to the actual policy solutions they are seeking. This is a tactic that the original community organizer, Saul Alinsky, strongly encouraged.
The most amazing thing about the Ferguson riots and the movement that has resulted therefrom is that from the very beginning, it has all been based upon one big lie – that Michael Brown was murdered by Officer Darren Wilson due to his skin color, while Brown had his hands in the air attempting to surrender.
Even the Obama Justice Dept., after a lengthy investigation, didn’t indict Wilson, because the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative is simply not true.
Soros was a huge financial backer of the Occupy Wall Street Protests, as well as the massive 2006 amnesty protests, both of which were sold to the American people as grassroots movements that spontaneously grew from Americans’ desire to implement two ideas that are at the core of progressive ideology: amnesty/open borders, and increasing taxes on the rich/wealth redistribution.
Considering his history of funding groups with similar agendas, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Soros is the pump that keeps the wellspring of racial animosity and division flowing in Ferguson and across the country.
The reason that this provably false conception of the events in Ferguson has continued to resonate to this day should be obvious: Obama and his community organizer allies, with the critical financial support of Soros, and the ideological support of the mainstream media, need this lie to live on in order to further their ultimate goal of bringing down the capitalist system and punishing the West for what they perceive as its racist, colonialist, manipulative history.
Only the words of the infamous Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, can fully explain why this proven lie has continued to prop up this destructive anti-American movement:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Fortunately, We The People have the strongest weapon that we could ever hope for to fight against those who wish to fundamentally transform our great nation: the truth.Click here for reuse options!
