The Deep (Left) Pockets Of Black Lives Matter

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Mitchell Shaw, originally posted at,

While claiming to be a grassroots organization formed in response to the prevalence of police violence, Black Lives Matter (BLM) is actually 100-percent pure Astroturf. With coffers bulging with millions of dollars from George Soros, the Ford Foundation, and other deep-pocketed leftist individuals and groups, BLM is little more than a front organization for these leftists and their agenda to reshape the very fabric of American society, culture, and law.

As The New American recently reported, Ken Zimmerman, the director of U.S. programs at Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), denied last year that Soros had funded BLM, saying it was just a rumor. That was before hackers with published OSF documents showing that the Soros group had already given at least $650,000 directly to BLM. Those same documents reveal the reason for OSF bankrolling BLM: the “dismantling” of America so that it can be recast according to the vision of Soros and his leftist cohorts. As we reported then:

The relevant portion of the report says:

The killing of Freddie Gray in April helped spawn weeks of peaceful protests by Baltimore residents and allies from the #BlackLivesMatter movement that were temporarily interrupted by a period of unrest that lasted less than 48 hours and resulted in some injuries and millions of dollars in property damage to neighborhood businesses. While many lamented the damage done, the overwhelming sentiment is that the uprising has catalyzed a paradigm shift in Baltimore that offers opportunities for major justice reforms.

In particular, recent events offer a unique opportunity to accelerate the dismantling of structural inequality generated and maintained by local law enforcement and to engage residents who have historically been disenfranchised in Baltimore City in shaping and monitoring reform. Building on our existing networks and programs, OSI-Baltimore will focus investments on: 1) creating a culture of accountability for policing in Baltimore, recognizing the pervasive racism, disrespect and lawlessness that gave rise to recent events; and 2) building the capacity of activists in Baltimore to demand and achieve immediate and long-term reforms.


The sum of $650,000 is quite something for an organization claiming both that it is “grassroots” and that it represents the people being oppressed by an evil, racist society. Grassroots aren’t normally that wealthy, and evil, racist societies don’t normally fund organizations dedicated to throwing off those chains. There is clearly something else at work here and that something is an Astroturf front for racial agitation.

And, as much money as $650,000 is, it is mere drop in the bucket. The Washington Times reports that between OSF and the Center for American Progress, BLM has been the beneficiary of $33,000,000. Through grants to a variety of subversive organizations under the BLM umbrella, OSF and the Center for American Progress are funding a false narrative about racial disparity and police violence with the end-goal of “reforming” local police by federalizing them. By using the looting and rioting as “opportunities for major justice reforms,” Soros and his ilk have fanned the flames of an invented fire for their own purposes.

As bad as all of that would be on its own, even that $33,000,000 is — yet and still — just a drop in the bucket. The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy have recently formed the Black-Led Movement Fund with a six-year commitment to a pooled donor campaign to the tune of $100,000,000. Race-hustling, it would appear, is a booming industry. After all, you can’t make omelets without breaking a few eggs and you can’t reconstruct a society until you first tear it down. And there is no tool better at tearing down a society that the proven method of divide-and-conquer. $133,000,000 will pay for a lot of #BLM #FTP t-shirts.

So, under the banner and hashtag of “Black Lives Matter” sits a bulging and growing money bag. What is BLM doing with its ill-gotten gains? Have these “leaders” of black America started career training centers in the most impoverished and disenfranchised neighborhoods? No, they have simply demanded higher minimum wages. Rather than help the poor, black residents of the nation’s poor, black neighborhoods learn more valuable job skills, BLM simply demands that entry-level McJobs pay more than the jobs are worth. Have these “leaders” of black America started drug rehabilitation programs to help the poor overcome addictions? No, they have instead demanded that the legalization of drugs which addle the minds of the poor, black Americans in the inner-cities of America. Have these “leaders” of black America launched programs to address the cycle of poverty which necessarily accompanies high illegitimate birth-rates and fatherless homes? No, instead they have demanded that the “sex work” industry (a not-so-veiled reference to prostitution) be legalized. If black lives mattered to these “leaders” in the BLM “movement,” they would seek ways to make black lives better. Instead they use black lives as cannon fodder in their war on police — which is part of a larger war on society.

Take for instance just one of the many subversive organizations which will receive that $100,000,000 from The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy. The Movement for Black Lives (MBL) advocates for all of the above-mentioned ideas and more. MBL demands reparations including free college and a minimum wage with no requirements for the one receiving the “wage” to perform any work in order to receive it. (Of course, "minimum wage" is not the correct term since the very definition of "wage" is payment received for work performed.) It’s enough to make one wonder what the free college education is for if people will get money for nothing. MBL also demands the legalization (they prefer the term “decriminalization”) of drugs and prostitution. Their demand goes so far as to make such policy retroactive and to include — say it with me — reparations. And, with a wink and a nod to Marx and Engels, MBL demands “economic justice” to include “collective ownership, not merely access.”

The communist-on-its-face nature of these and other demands of the organizations under the BLM umbrella are a clear indicator of the real intent of BLM. The deep-pocketed funding by the likes of Soros, the Center for American Progress, the Ford Foundation, and Borealis Philanthropy show that BLM is the means, not the end. BLM is little more than a tool of social revolutionaries hell-bent on destroying America so they can build their long awaited dystopia which they attempt to pass off as a utopia.

When we do for others what they could do for themselves we steal any chance they have to develop their self esteem.

It is a heinous crime.

These people usually then go on to feel like they have been victimized, getting attention by blaming others.  And they have been victimized, but not for the reasons they understand.

Finally, as a life-long professional victim, they develop a strong sense of entitlement. 

This entitlement is reinforced by others doing even more for them that they could do for themselves.

As entitled victims they can justify any behavior.  They have no morals.  So they act like animals.  Or worse, they act like humans beings with no morals.

"The body of an activist from St. Louis who led protests about the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014 was found with a gunshot wound in the charred remains of a vehicle on Tuesday morning, according to the police and news accounts.

The activist, Darren Seals, 29, was found inside the vehicle on Diamond Drive in Riverview in St. Louis County around 1:50 a.m., the St. Louis County Police Department said in a statement. The vehicle had been on fire and he was found after the flames were extinguished.

The police said Mr. Seals had lived at an address on Millburn Drive in St. Louis, about 12 miles from where his body was found. The case is being investigated as a homicide by the department’s Bureau of Crimes Against Persons. The motive for the killing was unknown. "

So Black Lives Matter is basically using $130,000,000+ to make sure black lives will never matter.

ALL LIVES matter, except Palestinian lives - it seems.

ShakenNotStirred's picture

"Palestinians" are squatters in a land never belonged to them in the first place, and as much parasites as BLM.

Can you please stuff your propaganda once and for all and go back to your kindergarten. The teachers are looking for you and your mamma is worried.

When the Jewish state was established in Palestine, approximately 700,000 Palestinians were forced to leave their homes. The 1948 Palestinian exodus is known as the Nakba ("al-Nakbah", literally "disaster", "catastrophe", or "cataclysm"). According to "Expulsion of the Palestinians." Institute for Palestine Studies, around 80 percent of the Arab inhabitants of what became Israel (50 percent of the Arab total of Mandatory Palestine) left or were expelled from their homes.

The World Almanac 1933, compiled by The American Jewish Committee, shows the Jewish population of Palestine in 1933 to be 175,006.

Old saying:

The mob controls the streets

The demagogue controls the mob

Money controls the demagogue

The jew controls the money - same as it has been since 1609

ShakenNotStirred's picture

The little detail you forgot to mention is that before all that, the original Jews were expelled before any "Palestinian" (term invented in the 1960's) ever existed.

You are not robbing when you are taking back what the thief robbed from you.

GreatUncle's picture

Thanks you just justified my robbing all my MP's in parliament and now we start working back through history.

All you Americans you better leave, North America is the kingdom of the Native American Indians, ditto the Mayans, Inca, Aztec in South America.

The narrative that justifies the existence of Israel also contradicts every square foot of land in the world.

Stone Age man has more claim on Israel than any Israeli by you action.


Grimaldus's picture

By that logic, the Jewish tribes living in Mecca and Medina long before Islam evicted and slaughtered them should get a "right of return" too.

Or for that matter, all the lands that the Muslims "created" by force should revert to non muslims previous "owners" hands?

Yeah right. Not gonna happen captain.

I guess at least the Palitrashians were not beheaded and their women taken as slaves and raped, as Mohammad did to the 900 men and boys of the Banu Qurayza tribe.

Fuck off millenial go look at a map pre 1900 and you will see the world PALESTINE, you will not see the fucking world ISRAEL

because it did not exist.

Millenial my new name for fucking idiots, tends to be of the younger kind of twat too.

Since the source of money for all the destructive BLM behaviour can be traced, why do the targets not use that information in Court?

Any person who is attacked by the BLM, or anyone's property that is destroyed by the BLM should be sble to sue the instigators in Court.

Obviously the instigators/firebugs have deep pockets so geting sued in Civil Court for damages to pay medical bills and repair/replace property should be fairly easy.

Why don't the insurance companies do the same?

If the patient or insurance claimnant is using insurance as a result of violent BML behavior, why is the target left with the bills and higher rates?

What happens if the targets are not insured?

It's not like .gov has the integrity to step up to the plate and cover the damages-- the target will take health and finacial hits.

Nor will the BML instigators/firebugs will stop their fun and games after a few Court Orders for damages and payment.

"Courts? Laws? For us? Since when? Find out who we own, who's up for election, who owes us and make a phone call. That should teach them who runs the show."

Clearly .gov and BML have as much fear of the FBI as Clinton.

And they obviously have heaps of non-taxed money to burn, with no end in sight. 

They won't even notice a few extra million in awards.

Where is the IRS on this?

The IRS is always on the search for everything earned by workers, and they're so efficient aren't they.

The IRS can destroy anyone's life at will and without doing their homework.

Hell, they don't even have to follow laws.

And for sure they don't have to worry about the FBI either.

So while the IRS torments ordinary Americans for nothing, they have somehow overlooked all that BML firebug money.

The BML instigators/firebugs always have the luxury of going to their bought off legislators for more tax write offs even as we pick up the bills for murder and mayhem.

And they can destroy city, state, and federal property without fear of so much as a phone call.

It must be nice to own .gov concubines and gigolos.

The targets need to sue the firebugs for damages.

It was Zion that funded Israel into existence.  Israel was a plot long-time in the making.  See Balfour declaration.

Isn't it interesting that it was international banking i.e. the International (((J))) that declared war on Germany in 33.  It is the same characters that are funding BLM.

Ford foundation was invaded and taken over in the 60's.  This is another favorite tactic of our (((friends))).  The former enemy Ford, has now been subverted from within.

Every revolution in modern times is funded... follow the money and we almost always find the machinations of our friends.  They are messianic and want the world in their hands... the roots are Kabala and also owning money power.

These divide and conquer tactics will not work on Russia. They have learned from their Bolsheveik experience and have installed antibodies - hence the banning of Soros type organizations.

Many many millenials are dupes, and it takes a long time to overcome public school programming.

I averred that BLM was billionaire financed astroturf months ago.

Glad the world is catching up.

I don't expect the current administration to do anything, but I expect the Trump administration to take action against the financiers of BLM.

Not a single one of these radical organizations has ever advocated for a "wealth tax" to be applied to the richest 0.01% of Americans. Wonder why?

ToSoft4Truth's picture

Which ticker are they buying all this AstroTurf from?

WernerHeisenberg's picture

How about a 100% wealth tax on all members of central banking families and the political class, after they are hung for their crimes against humanity and worshipping Lucifer?  Yes, I said it. metaphysics does matter.  Signing up as an ememy of all humanity is the root of all serious crime, above the Nuremberg crime of waging aggressive war as it is the key to committing all of the other atrocicies.  Note, the entire banking, political, and media establishment of the West has been guilty of every crime on the Nuremberg docket for the past 70 years.  They all need to swing.  But first we much fight and win the war.  Love and light to my fellow warriors.

MEFOBILLS's picture

How about rent taxes on unearned income? This can replace 16'th ammendment income taxes. (And yes, progressive era 16'th, 17'th, Federal Reserve Act, and IRS were funded into existence by our friends.)


How about a sovereign money system, to then prevent usury at it's source.   In today's system, every new banker loan pays usury up-front in loan paydown.  This is like a giant gift to our (((friends))) who then use it to usurp the world.  Stop paying for you own dispossession.  The real fix is to change the money system.

Pull the weed out by its root.

I'm sure, much like the Clinton foundation, BLM will be a tightly controlled efficient organization that the IRS will certainly give a fair audit of their books to fulfill their 501c3 mandate... said nobody ever.

Two sets of justice, one for the 1% like the Ford Foundation [spit], and one for the 99% of the others who have to slog through tons of IRS paperwork to avoid an audit. I ran a not for profit in the US for 10 years, the amount of audit, reporting and paperwork I needed to submit was insane.

At least this will give Judicial Watch another line of attack...

The hypocrisy of TPTB is really getting to be outrageous.

Like all Leftoid projects it will only lead to racial conflict and strife. Leftoids think all people have such small Amygdalas as they have. Morons.

HH, had to login with a prayer.


The Gunsite Prayer:


Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me.  Grant me victory over my foes and those who wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be 'If I only had my gun', and Lord if today is truly the day that you call me home, let me die in a pile of spent brass.

How about telling us why ZH pulled your Soros article so quick last week?

hedgeless_horseman's picture


I don't know what you mean.  I have not written any article on Soros, or any topic, for quite some time, and never had anything on ZH pulled, censored, or edited.

TeaClipper's picture

I'll leave that to everyone else here who saw and read the article last weekend to piss on that stupid lie.

Weird that you should even need to lie about it though, tells me you got your ass kicked for that article, i was just asking why is all, enquiring minds want to know

And remember, there is no shame if you backed off from George's lawers, but at least be honest with the community here, otherwise you are just a fake

That isnt you Hillary is it?

lot of dead blacks and whites because of their operation.  does that matter?

wildbad's picture

here in Germany the radical left is responsible for all kinds of regular atrocities while the political rhetoric is always about the "Extreme Right".  I have seen very few articles about this but one small piece a couple of months back revealed that a particularly violent leftist group was recieving German government subsidies for their rent in Bavaria.


While very small compared to the treasonous and seditions actions of George  Soros and his destabilization movements AROUND THE WORLD this is just what is being reported.  My suspicion is that these ner-do-wells in germany are also living off of the largess of soros NGOs or directly from the NWO government of Merkel and Co.


Color me paranoid

Kidbuck's picture

True that. Very nicely put.
The converse is that when i am forced to pay for this crap l lose my chance to develop a charitable impulse. Forcing your neighbor at the point of a gun to support your causes, which is the root of all leftist schemes, not only makes you a thief but deprives your neighbor of the chance to develop his character by choosing his own good causes.

Note that George and Jonathan Soros are members of the Rockefeller/CFR, along with Clintons. Maybe "money" isn't the only return on the investment.

piliage's picture

Because America is a racist hell hole... didn't you get the memo?

In my experience dealing with the rich assholes in non-profits (NGOs), it's about those who have money and power trying to 'be someone' and having control. They can pull the strings.

In the case of the Rockefeller Foundation, it was about trying to wash away the guilt of some of the actions of their father. The Rockefeller clan are in their 4th generation since the old man set up the foundation, and the current brood from my experience are squishy headed lame-brain moonbat idiot rich white people who live on a teepee to be one with the Native American.

Same for the Ford Foundation which is a cesspool of Marxist stupidity 'one world government' types.

It's all about rich people controlling the masses for their own good. Soros is already rich, so now he can 'make changes'... It's a hobby to these dickheads.

I guess you missed the USSR liquidation

Blackfox's picture

Soros and other leading Jews have lobbied for every abortion bill, gay marriage, pro immigration bill since day one. The idea is to wreck white society into low birthrates and make 3rd world immigrants birthrates outpace the whites.



Because 75 years ago most of Europe rounded up the Jews and packed them of into cattle trains to labor camps. There are Jews today still walking around with Auschwitz tattoos.

The Jews want the whites gone you stupid Goyim.


When the Jews disarmed the Soviet Union they killed 66 million white Christians - When they have disarmed America history will repeat.


MEFOBILLS's picture

Soros makes his money through destabilization.  It is a twofer circle, the destabilization pays to then further the destabilization.   Making bets on exchange rates can push the rate you want it to go.  This is called a bear raid, and the act of borrowing new banker money into existence to then short a foreign currency will drive down rate.  

Another tactic of Soros is to buy up bonds for cheap, and then try to claim face value later.  For example, IMF loan to Ukraine was supposed to be able to pay off a Soros bond bet.  (Remember he was pissed when the last loan didn't come through...ha) Ukraine is also destabilized to then buy up rich farmland for cheap.  Cheap is especially true as "dollars" stay strong while Ukie money become destabilized  and cheap.

It is a class war of Oligarchs against the real economy of producers.  BLM are useful idiots that can be wound up and pointed.  Muslims have a large population of useful idiots that are easy to wind up and point, just pay them - give them some easy "tang" and a few post Medina quotes, and off they go to do terror.

Blacks, Muslims and (((J's))), no advanced civilization for you!  You will be dragged backwards into the muck.

Michael O'Donoghue wrote a lot of Lemmings, and HATED the hypocrisy of the hard left and called them out on it with brutal satire.

What is so sad is that so many scumbags on the left need to be called out again, and this Joan Baez [spit] parody would never allowed to be written today. It would be censored.

Divide and conquer.  

I hope that readers here and elsewhere will remember that they are being played by Soros when they see the irritating statements and actions coming out of BLM and think of that as justification for hating American minorities.  Same with the bullshit coming out of MSM generally that suggests the country is massively divided.  It is only divided because TPTB are creating division.

Not ALL divisions are created by TPTB.

That is true, but TPTB sure as shit fan the flames and create an illusion that we all hate each other.  Just as an example that fits the economic theme of this site, who do you know personally who likes the Trans Pacific Trade Agreement?  Anyone?

so Soros is responsible for blacks' high incarceration rates, out of wedlock births, low graduation rates, etc- quit making fucking excuses for these people- they need to acccept responsibility for the sorry state of black culture in the US. 

LetThemEatRand's picture

My point is that many of them do.  MSM would tell you that they all want reparations and hate white people.  

And by the way, have you never met an entitled white person on drugs?  Do they accept personal responsibility?  

Bankers are mostly white.

Politicians are mostly white.

News personalities are mostly white.

Do you think that bankers, politicians, and newsmen are assholes because the are white?

Substitute Zionist for jewish and I would partially agree with you.   For example, Hillary is a Zionist, but she is not jewish.

Either way, we are being played.  If the shit ever hit the fan, I would prefer that we all fight together against the powers that be instead of against each other.  They are counting on us not being able to do that.
