George Soros Denies He Is Funding Townhall Protests

Tyler Durden's picture

In response to reports of the coincidental geographical location to one of George Soros' largest funded activist groups, the Democratic mega-donor has felt it necessary to make a statement denying he is funding protests at GOP lawmakers’ town hall meetings.

As we noted yesterday, Jimmy Dahman, a former field organizer for the Clinton campaign in Iowa, founded the Town Hall Project. Dahman claimed on CNN that the town hall events are "all organic and happening at the grassroots level."

Dahman's group is closely involved with MoveOn.org, a major progressive activist group that recently launched a website, called ResistanceRecess.com, to encourage activists to attend town hall events.

The Town Hall Project's parent company is The Action Network, which was involved in demonstrations against Walmart and the protests in Ferguson.

Finally, we note the projects potential links to billionaire George Soros...

The Action Network is located at the same Washington, D.C., address as United We Dream, the "largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation." United We Dream has received funding from liberal billionaire George Soros. It began organizing "sanctuary campus" anti-Trump protests shortly after the election.

 

The Action Network also shares the same address as Change to Win, the labor organizing group.

And now, as Politico reports, a spokesman for the Soros foundation said in a statement...

"There have been many false reports about George Soros and the Open Society Foundations funding protests in the wake of the U.S. presidential elections, there is no truth to these reports."

As The Hill reports, Trump and some Republican lawmakers have dismissed the protests as the work of “liberal activists.” Vice President Pence echoed that sentiment on Thursday during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, saying that “liberal activists” at town hall meetings could not prevent Republicans from repealing the Affordable Care Act. “Despite the best efforts of liberal activists at town halls around the country, the American people know better,” Pence said. “Obamacare has failed and Obamacare must go.” Soros has long been a subject of ire on the right. The billionaire investor has spent millions of dollars underwriting Democratic and progressive causes and political campaigns.

Plausable deniability.

Well of course not. There are several shell companies, PACs, and NGOs between him and the rabble rousers.

Denial is just the first step towards confirmation.

The fact that he, through intermediaries, felt the need to deny it only makes it more likely in my mind.

evoila's picture

well he didn't deny anything else, so does that mean he was behind everything else?

MANvsMACHINE's picture

What he said is exactly what I would expect someone who was anonymously funding these activities to say.

Total BS, we know Soros is using BS technicalities of separate entities interacting with each other to hide his involvement. Lying sack of crap. Its the same story, Own nothing, control everything. Justice will be served, be it Street or official justice.

When it gets serious you have to lie.   If he is funding them, which I think he is, then he very well could get caught up in legal woes such instigating riots, RICO Act, and I am sure there are others.  And don't forget about the activities of his son.

Is this article a lapse in judgement for some real news from the wofferton site   ???

 

Arkansas to ban the use of the B n H  name at the airport and on public buildings ............

Guess the good folks in AR decided they dont want to highlight or recognize folks 

that have had numerous multiple affairs while "married", been impeached and disbarred,

and or engage in well documented lies, plus, at the very best, have very shady financilal and ethical activites. 

....Are the foundations all still open ?????

O'Keefe's Project Veritas got Bob Creamer explaining this very tactic on video last September. It's all shell companies within shell companies.

George Soros’ under-eye bags are ginormous! There’s enough skin to make a large handbag, an attaché-case, AND a fanny pack.

BTW, his skin color and texture closely resemble Christine Lagarde’s purse.   ;-)

If he pays a front group to do it for him. Then of course his hands are clean....... Barf

 

Thae fact that he feels the need to reply to his BS is actually a good sign. George, might someday be held acountable for his communist subversion crap of soverign nations.

Well he has been funding his fellow Tribesman and shall we say SAYANIM:

Follow the money. It will lead right to the coffers of this Pure Evil Criminal Nazi Psychopath

Long memory man's picture

I understand that he and his father did in fact work for the Nazis, lisitng the jews for deportation,. I will have to re read the article again for details, but he did say "if we did not do someone else would have". Not a defense at nurnburg I understand.

Of course I could be wrong.

 

centerline's picture

I am sure he did a pretty good job of funnel money through various channels.  Would take some real investigating to find out.  But, yeah... follow the money for sure.  This creepy old evil fuck has been fomenting chaos for his own gain and worldview.  Too much money = too much power these days.  Honor?  gone.

Q: What would be the consequences for a guy like Soros if he actually got caught committing crimes?

A: Not one damn thing.

 

poeg's picture

Unless he was on a flight that had to land in Chinese territory, then he would be seeing a labour camp PDQ. They've had him convicted in absentia for more than a decade now for his machinations in screwing their currency and various companies.

The Nazi's were the good guys - you will find out soon enough why they kicked the Jews out.

As for the 6 million claim in gas chambers - it's about as true as WMD and throwing babies out of incubators...

Laddie's picture

This sure does remind me of Gyorgy Schwartz:

Munich, Gathering of the SA -- Speech of November 9, 1921
On November 9, 1921--just five days after the Battle of the Hall (Saalschlacht) where fewer than fifty SA Men had beaten back more than 400 communists and Jews who had tried to disrupt Hitler's speech in the Festival Hall of the Hofbrauhaus--Adolf Hitler addressed a gathering of SA Men. The following is what he told them:

For us there are only two possibilities: either we remain German or we come under the thumb of the Jews. This latter must not occur; even if we are small, we are a force. A well-organized group can conquer a strong enemy. If you stick close together and keep bringing in new people, we will be victorious over the Jews.
