Liberal billionaire George Soros has played a critical role in financing the Ferguson, Missouri, protest movement, giving at least $33 million in one year to back already established groups that "emboldened" on-the-ground activists there, The Washington Times reports. Soros' backing "gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day cause celebré," the paper said. A plethora of groups shared funding from Soros and closely collaborated, referring to each other's news columns and creating in effect an "echo chamber" of sorts using Twitter and Facebook, the Times reports. Buses of activists from groups including the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York, and the Center for Community Change in Washington — all funded in part by Soros — went to Ferguson beginning in August and went on to organize gatherings and protests there until late December, according to the Times.
Another Soros-funded group which helped fuel the Ferguson demonstrations is a network of grass-roots organizations called the Gamaliel Foundation. President Barack Obama started his community-organizing career at a Gamaliel affiliate in Chicago. Clergy representatives from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference (SDPC), where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a trustee, also participated in the protests. Wright was Obama's long-time pastor in Chicago before publicity about his harsh rhetoric, including use of the phrase "God damn America," caused Obama to distance himself.

If we could just keep liberals and "activists" out of the picture, The authoritarians could finish their agenda to transform America according to the vision of it's rightful owners.
These disrespectful agitators will be dealt with.
