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


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.

So, you're saying the black eyewitnesses lied to the grand jury (of all colors) to protect a white cop? That is an interesting concept, do you have any actual proof they didn't see what they said they saw?

Then we can Move On to NYC and how "white progressives" forced a black man through insane state tax policies into selling loosies, which cost him his life.

The MOST important thing to remember about about Ferguson is not the "he said, they said" about the killing of Brown, but the treason by the gun and badge thugs that followed. Also don't forget that the criminal pol "prosecutor" knowingly sought out and used a know perjurer:

The banksters need to repay us.

Soros aka Schwartz, the hungarian communist, is in bed with barry blocking keystone to deliver oil via Petrobras to Texas coast refineries.


Keystone has been delivering oil to Texas since 2010, but the last leg to be completed will not get done soon because it would shave 1.50 off the delivery of a barrel - barry knows this and makes his little Soros deal less viable.


Hate barry even more now?  Me too.

kchrisc's picture

With respect, but Keystone is blocked because doing so will piss-off the neo-con sheeple support base whose part of the nation it would run through. CIA-Obama is serving his masters well.

And that is even assuming that their is a pipeline even in the works.

The banksters need to repay us.


These are the same criminals behind Sandy Hoax, so anything is believable.

Keystone is blocked because Uncle Warren frowns upon competition to his rolling pipeline BNSF. I'd say Warren is making a killing on his bankrolling of Barry.

orangegeek's picture

Remember Keystone is delivering Alberta oil to the Texas coast and has been since 2010.  It is only a more direct route that is being blocked - this would shave 1.50 from the cost of a barrel.


This whole Keystone narrative is less than a half truth.

"Soros aka Schwartz, the hungarian communist..."

Exactly. The Soros commie political allegiance should open the eyes of anybody who's been brainwashed for decades into believing that wherever big money is involved, it must by definition be capitalism. Soros is a hard line commie and a billionaire. It blows the disinformation out of the water. Bill Gates is not a lot different, although he's not Hungarian. And then there was the Russian Bolsheviks who were partially funded by big money banks in Wall Street.

And one doesn't have to dig very deep to discover what ethnicity many of these people are. Leo Strauss - International Socialist - was a leading mentor to these people and the Neocons.

Soros is not smart, he's not astute, he's not hardworking, he's not even lucky. He's just a member of the Free Money Club - that's all. End the Federal Reserve, and all the Free Money Club members are out of business. See?

For years many people have always said 'they' this and 'they' that, and 'they' are doing something. Now, the they has turned moar towards the him and the hers of the criminal scumbag circle of evil.

Moar and moar people are seeing exactly WHO the beastly tentacles of the monster are. Soros and a host of others are just puppets to the overall evil that sits above them. The sock puppet masters are having a difficult time pulling off the slimebag activities behind mankind’s collective backside. The plain simple truth is becoming moar and moar evident, EVERYBODY KNOWS!

Next stop, jail house rock for these criminal not even elitists bags of shat!

Proxy Protestors could be almost anybody funding them.

- Unions
- Union Supporters
- Agents Provocateurs, FBI, Soros, ETC

- CIA, Right Wing, Left Wing

- Green Party
- Communists
- Neocons
- Neoliberal Economists like the Ford Foundation...

I knew it.  Sharpton was Soro's bitch

soros may be a lot of things, but belonging to the human race isn't one of them.

he had no say on the Ferguson riots, he just funded them.

only in america, can soros do what he does to america, and it's tax-deductible.

I'm pretty sure it was during the bp-spill days, Obama was not allowing any drilling in the gulf.

then gave petrobras $2b for drilling, a few hundred miles so. of the gulf, yes soros is heavily invested in petrobras.

maybe someone smarter than me can watch this, petrobras is under investigation, and everyones selling petrobras stocks, but soros as of a month ago, is increasing his stake in petrobras.

Soros is a front for the Rothschilds.

I knew about the criminal investigation going on into Brazil's Petrobrás and alleged money laundering into Dilma Rousseff's PT political party coffers, but I wasn't aware that Soros was invested in the company. That figures.

Problem in Brazil is that corruption runs very wide & deep and the investigators or judges will be bought off too.

Is Everyone sure that Zionist are the Power than is Killing the USA, the Idea of America?

Sure some high flying Jews are controlling the USA. But maybe it is just a part of the professions of Lawyers, Bankers, Lobbyists.

Is impossible that Lawyers are always working for Profit, Revenue, and Bonuses... that Lawyers or Vulture Jewish Lawyers are responsible for the Racketeering & Conspiracy against the USA????

Think about it. Maybe we should acknowledge that Jews are good lawyers & bankers and other things... while there are bad Jews too. My Point: Bankers are Evil. Lawyers are Evil. We need a solution to "too many Bankers & Lawyers". And we need a solution to "Too Many Lobbyists in the US CON-gress".

Maybe it is a Lawyer problem. Lawyers must learn our culture, language, laws, finance, Banking, Lobbying, and everything else. Plus Lawyers have to learn the tools of control, the ways of Power, the ways of Wealth, the ways of Finance, the ways of the Arts in New York, San Franco, Sante Fe or wherever...

css1971's picture

No. The way you destroy a market is by producing more, not less. When there is a massive oversupply of something it's value drops to zero. Look at the damage a housing oversupply did.

Lawyers and bankers are govenment sanctioned and limited professions. This means supply of them is limited. So, either subsidise law school and banker school. Or get rid of the government license and then subsidise law and banker school.

20 years and it would be uneconomic to be a lawyer or banker, they'll have to get McJobs on the side just to survive.

Zionists and banking mafia are two different things although with some overlap. Zionists mostly want to control America so they can use it to destroy Israel's enemies in the middle east. It's the banking mafia who want to loot America, finish it off and move on to China.

They own and run the media and cover up the thousands of black on white murders/crimes/rapes that happen every year and then they exploit trayvon, mike brown, make multiple slave movies to enhance white hatred.... Jews are evil fucks that are working together to take over the entire world and nothing will get in the way. That's their thinking. Most Jews are liberals but ALL Jews support Israel and other Jews relentlessly. It's the Jews that are behind everything, no one else.

Soros " makes massive highly levered bets " per Wikipedia.
Consequently he needs to create volatility. He esposes that he can speak Esparanto" he claims a dubious economic trading philosophic theory called Reflexivity- which cannot be empirically proven or disproved. He is a phoney of the highest order- by using the wealth of tax-evaders and off-shore black-nobility, he has been able to make a few trades over many many years - with collusion and other financial chicanery. The same way that Paulsen, Ackman et al made money by shorting synthetic mortgage CDS's when they'd never heard of a CDS a month earlier. Basically a fraud of the highest order.

The guy that broke the bank of England. He is said to also have profited from the Asian crisis. Of that crisis it is said that it led to the death of 400,000 people all over Asia due to illnesses caused by malnutrition and lack of resources to buy medications.

He met Poroshenko of Ukraine lately. Not good news at all for the people living there.

Reflexivity, the concept, the word, the social theory itself, is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Soros should be given a medal for talking about it, for in some ways, trying to popularize it. This one thing endears me to him.

Radical Marijuana's picture

Soros seems one of the more brilliant banksters, which makes him able to be even more evil. My pet peeve is that he has also paid to transform the "legalize marijuana movements" with the most funding into classic controlled opposition groups, which are steering that movement into a dead end.

Legalizing marijauana should be based on Hemp Truth, not based on compromises with the old Huge Lies. However, the most publicly significant "legalize marijuana" groups in the USA today are those which are getting tens of millions of dollars from the typical groups of evil billionaires, which are thereby able to make sure that the "legalize marijuana" movements are controlled opposition.

Marijuana laws ought to be seen as the single simplest symbol, and most extreme particular example, of how everything is being controlled through systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence. More Hemp Truth should be seen in the context of more Radical Truths generally.

However, Soros, et alia, as evil billionaires, which can donate tens of millions of dollars to organizations, thus enable those organizations to become way more publicly significant than others which are not given such large donations. Such oligarchs have always used the techiques of controlling the opposition, on all sides, through being able to dominate the funding of whichever groups they wanted to become publicly predominant. The results are that the dominate "legalize marijuana" movements are no longer radical, but rather, are mainstream morons and reactionary revolutionaries. (Of course, that is nothing new, but merely another way in which pot politics is a microcosm of the rest of politics.)

It's not a "movement" if the entire operation is manned by paid staff, with none of their meetings open to the public.  Try volunteering your time and see what happens.  They might let you gather signatures for the ballot initiative or maybe not.  The excuse they gave me for using their own paid staff was that they were afraid they'd get too many bogus signatures if they trusted strangers to do the canvassing.

In New Mexico, the Soros-run Drug Policy Foundation is just a private clique with nothing open to the public.

So, what might be that return/benefit?


I don't know about Ferguson but I've always thought a lot of the media manufactured black riots since the 1960s were about real estate.

spark a riot -> white flight -> buy low

gentrify later -> sell high

rinse and repeat

(probably possible to check who is buying the houses of the white folks who I assume are already selling up - prob some holding company but wouldn't be surprised if the chain of ownership led to the usual banksters)

Soros has probably paid for all the recent marijuana ballot initiatives mentioned here

Albuquerque had a weird one in the last election where they were suposedly trying to change the city law to decriminalize possession of small amounts of pot.  But if you're busted for pot they charge you under state law, not a city ordinance. The whole thing was bogus.

The effort was from the Drug Policy Alliance and Drug Policy Foundation of New Mexico ... Soros from their very inception.

They only used paid staff to do the canvassing and electioneering.

I tried to volunteer my time in support to see what happened and just as expected they took my name and number but never called me back.  When i called their "director" E. Blankenship she told me that they were only using paid staff and that all their positions were filled and they were no longer accepting applications.  She said that their planning meetings were not open to the public and that nothing was open to the public.

When I tried asking more questions she said she had to go and hung up on me.

If you live in one of the place with a MJ ballot initiative go ahead and try to reach the organizers and see what happens.
