ACLU Actively Assisting With Soros-Driven Protest Organization After Accepting Funds From The Open Society Institute

Startling developments have revealed that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has moved beyond their original charter as a legal advocate for individual rights under the Constitution to actively taking a hand in training and organizing protest groups throughout the country. Their shift in focus came just over a month after reports emerged that George Soros was sinking tens of millions into the group through his affiliated organizations. Articles prominently featured by the ACLU announcing the shift towards actively organizing anti-government protests are authored by a former employee of Soros-funded groups. The startling shift indicates that the ACLU has decided to participate in Soros driven protest movements with the goal of subverting American democracy and driving regime change in the United States.

I. The ACLU Has Actively Begun To Assist In Protest Organization

The ACLU's shift from their traditional mandate of legal advocacy appears to have occurred sometime in February 2017, with the announcement of People Power, a campaign consisting of what they described as "Resistance Training" to "take the fight against Donald Trump’s policies not just into the courts, but into the streets." The training sessions are to be broadcast nationally via livestream. The shift appears to have been announced on February 24, 2017 in an article authored by the ACLU's National Political Director, Faiz Shakir. Shakir apparently also runs the ACLU's Reddit account, using it for an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit to announce the rollout of People Power. In the session, Mr. Shakir explained that the campaign would consist of more than 1,500 events, to organize a "volunteer army to fight back" in what he described as "the fight of our lives." Announcements of the campaign are also being astroturfed to multiple left leaning subreddits in an attempt to garner support.

II. Faiz Shakir Is A Former Employee Of Soros-Controlled Organizations, People Power Was Launched After Major Funding From George Soros

Preliminary investigation has uncovered facts which call into question the incentives behind the ACLU's decision to become involved with political protest. Faiz Shakir, the author of the ACLU's announcement of People Power, spent seven years working at the Center for American Progress and was a founding member and editor-in-chief of The Center for American Progress (CAP) was a project spearheaded by John Podesta with heavy funding from George Soros. ThinkProgress was founded by the CAP to serve as its blog and news outlet, alongside David Brock's propaganda outlet Media Matters. Brock has recently come under fire amid revelations that his new organization, Shareblue, has improper ties to the Chinese government, organizations in the City of London, Mexico, Israel and multiple Middle Eastern states. Shakir also served as a senior advisor to Senator Harry Reid and as a senior adviser and director of digital media for Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. His past associations with Soros-funded groups and prominent Democrat political figures raise questions about his apparent role spearheading the ACLU's drive to become involved in training and equipping protestors.

Mr. Shakir speaking at Capitol Hill

The ACLU itself has received massive amounts of funding from George Soros. A February 6th, 2017 article from Zerohedge cited research from LifeZette and the Capital Research Center indicating that Soros's Open Society Institute has sunk over $35 million into the ACLU alone and millions more to other liberal organizations directly involved in filing lawsuits against various policies of Donald Trump all around the country. The massive donation drive is part of Soros' overall effort to "reshape the American justice system" by buying district attorneys in races across the country.

III. The ACLU's Sudden Drive To Assist With Protest Organization Appears To Be Part Of A Wider Attempt By George Soros To Implement Regime Change In The United States

The presence of Soros and Democrat-aligned individuals who are closely involved with the ACLU's sudden drive to assist with protest efforts and the major funding Soros has given to the ACLU seriously calls into question the ACLU's People Power movement. Given Soros' major support for other protest movements across the U.S. in the aftermath of Donald Trump's defeat of his supported candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US presidential election, the funds sunk into the ACLU appear to be part of a wider effort to effect regime change in the United States. Soros and his affiliated organizations have already faced backlash over the past year in multiple Eastern European countries amid accusations that he was meddling in their political processes and improperly seeking to influence public opinion. The People Power movement, in light of the involvement of Mr. Shakir and the major funding given to the ACLU by Soros serves in effect to further his overall goals of political control in the United States, irregardless of the purported good intentions behind it.

The ACLU has evolved into a Regressive Liberal cesspool.

Defund it. Drive the little Liberal lawyer turds into oblivion.

We all know what an evil whore Soros is.

Demand that he be tried and imprisoned! (won't cost us much. Hell, he is damn near 100 yrs old).

Soros does this for fun and profit. There has never been an instance of a color revolution ending in anything other than misery and totalitarianism for the people and fat profits for Oligarchical interests.

The left truly are the useful idiots of Oligarchy.

Have you ever watched Michael Caine in the Holcroft Chronicles? He prevents Billions from falling into the worng hands that would fund terrorist groups around the world and create chaos.

Reminds me of Soros' goals.

You can stream it for free I think on Netflix of Amazon or maybe yootoob since it's an old movie.

The ACLU was founded by Marxists.  They have stood on the side of what is right on some issues but their agenda along with the agenda of all Progressives is a Marxist Utopia with themselves as the leaders of that Utopia.  Never forget that all animals are equal but some animals are more equal than the rest of us.  Those who would redistribute the wealth always get first choice of what is redistributed.
