The Mysterious Sponsor Behind The Ferguson Protests And Media Campaign: George Soros

Tyler Durden's picture

In an apparent effort to "keep the media’s attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes — not just the overpolicing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August," liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.

As The Washington Times explains,

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, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.

 

Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.

The handouts, as The Daily Mail reports, revealed in tax filings from Soros's private foundation, were given to dozens of different groups which weighed in on the crisis.

Organizers from professional groups in Washington, D.C., and New York were bussed into the Missouri town to co-ordinate messaging and lobby to news media to cover events using the billionaire's funding.

 

...

 

The cash was reportedly funneled into keeping up numbers of protesters in the community over a period of months by bringing in outside activists.

 

Meanwhile papers from think tanks were disseminated to bring in extra coverage of the civil unrest, also linked to the police killings of Eric Garner in Staten Island and Tamir Rice, 12, in Cleveland, Ohio.

 

...

 

The slew of organizations reportedly created their own online 'echo chamber', by using their extensive social media presences to 'like', repost and comment on articles putting across their point of view.

The director of Soros's fund said that they have no direct control over the groups they give to, and said they are all trying to improve accountability. He told the Washington Times:

"Helping groups combine policy, research [and] data collection with community organizing feels very much the way our society becomes more accountable.

 

The incidents, whether in Staten Island, Cleveland or Ferguson, were spontaneous protests - we don’t have the ability to control or dictate what others say or choose to say."

The Soros cash was also put to work driving buzzwords and social media campaigns to propel Ferguson into the national consciousness.

One recipient of his funding is the Organization for Black Struggle, which in turned established a group called the Hands Up Coalition, that has helped make ubiquitous the "hands up, don't shoot" slogan.

 

Soros also gave money to the Drug Policy Alliance, which worked on the perpetuation of the 'black lives matter' buzz phrase, which has been incorporated into speeches by political figures including Hillary Clinton.

You can't take it with you. This is much better use of money than Bill Gate's depopulation of Africa.

 

The US does shit like this overseas all the time, see Ukraine, and Syria. Karma payback time? Those groups are sometimes called NGO. Eg: the Red Cross.

What's up with the stupid slogans? "Black live matter." "Hands up, Don't shoot." These are passive and pathetic. These are slogans for apathetic losers,  not people pushing for real change.

To all of you stupid animals out there, what do you get excoriating George Soros?
The masses are brute and ignorant; they are easy to manipulate and subdue, besides being extremely gullible and incapable to think for themselves (trained not to think critically).

Therefore, stop whining bunch of losers.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. That's right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that's -- that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

Mr. SOROS: Not -- not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don't -- you don't see the connection. But it was -- it created no -- no problem at all.

KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

Mr. SOROS: No.

“We must realize that our party’s most powerful weapon is racial tension. By pounding into the consciousness of the dark races, that for centuries they have been oppressed by whites, we can mold them into the program of the Communist Party. In America, we aim for several victories. While inflaming the Negro minorities against the whites, we will instill in the whites a guilt complex for their supposed exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Blacks to rise to prominence in every walk of life and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and will begin the process which will deliver America to our cause.”

-Jewish Playwright Israel Cohen,

A Radical Program For The Twentieth Century, 1912. Also in Congressional Record , Vol. 103, p. 8559, June 7, 1957, by Rep. Thomas Abernathy.

You do realize that the whole thing was a hoax, yes?  That the congressional record you report to exist was actually someone reading an old letter to the editor supposedly quoting a publication that didn't exist?  See this:

Wikipedia is your source for "truth"?

Either way, the words describe what has been actually happening.

gwiss's picture

Buckaroo,

 

You have to pick a point at which you are willing to stop chasing a rabbit hole.  Now, I will admit, it is entirely possible that some dastardly cabal would be so thorough as to write a book about hoaxes just to give cover to a letter to the editor that a whistleblower wrote some time in the distant past (talking about the book about the Cohen hoax that the wikipedia article links to -- you can read the section about it.  Did you?)

 

On the other hand, the quote itself is well known on the internet.  Personally, i think it much more likely that the "quote" was created during the letter to the editor, that Israel Cohen never existed, and that the poster I responded to never even did even the most rudimentary of fact checking.  Wikipedia is of course not the most reliable of sources, but it's better than no research at all.

 

The quote rings true because it was written retroactively.  Not prospectively.

 

You can't determine the truth before hand and then cherry pick facts to bolster it.  That's how really asenine mistakes are made.

Old Jew Soros who has spent his life financing groups that undermine European racial solidarity (it is what they do after all) and  yet somehow, you think he is a "Nazi".

George Soros is an unrepentant Nazi collaborator.  So, yeah, I'm calling him out as a Nazi.

Such passive slogans are to underscore the Black American role as victim of a "White-dominated system", rather than to scare opinion makers with

1) aggressive slogans appropriate to uppity Blacks demanding change, or by

2) reminding anyone which ethnic group commits most acts of physical violence.
