After some investigating and looking into some of Soros' tax records, apparently some evidence exists that he had a hand in the Ferguson riots and maybe the Eric garner New York sensations.

Looks like he bankrolled around $33 million spread out to some organizations that came up with the now familiar slogans like hands up and black lives matter to name just 2.

No wonder we saw controlled reporting and well timed "rioting" and perfect unabated fire bombings on live TV.

Gotta wonder what the exact profit expectations were?

Soros doesn't just pour money into something for nothing.




Liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.

The handouts, 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.

What was the *Real* Target?

Guess it on the veracity of this:

washingtontimes.com

Kenneth Zimmerman (director of Mr. Soros‘ Open Society Foundations’ U.S. programs) said OSF has been giving to these types of groups since its inception in the early ‘90s, and that, although groups involved in the protests have been recipients of Mr. Soros‘ grants, they were in no way directed to protest at the behest of Open Society.

Two words: Hegelian Dialectic

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was a 19th century German philosopher who devised a particular dialectic, or, method of argument for resolving disagreements. To put it simply, the basis of Hegelianism dictates that the human mind can’t understand anything unless it can be split into two polar opposites. Good / Evil, Right / Wrong, Left / Right.

Another form of the Hegelian Dialectic is Problem – Reaction – Solution. It has been widely used by our governments and corporations around the world. You could say that in terms of controlling the masses, and society in general, it’s deployment has been an effective tool in keeping humanity in check.

Almost all major events in history employ the Hegelian Dialectic of: Problem – manufacture a crisis or take advantage of one already in place in order to get the desired Reaction of public outcry whereby the public demands a Solution which as been predetermined from the beginning.

I would tend to agree with you. I've studied on the Hegelian Dialectic. But...in the Ferguson case...what "Solution" has been adopted? I don't see any solution having come out of the Ferguson circus. Maybe there is one, but, from what I've seen, its played out; the MSM covered it in typical fashion on their 24 hour news coverage and now...its history. I don't get it.

The real target is transforming a "local police action" into a "progressive disinformation campaign" to make political gain.

Rinse, wash, repeat for each case listed in article.

Then Ferguson Missouri should try and sue Soros for the damages done to the town. Now whether they stick or not is another issue,but they should get a great lawyer and try it. Let him waste his money on defending the chaos he causes all over the world. He is using the same tactics in this country as he has been in other countries. All it brings is civil strife,deaths,injuries and destruction. Something needs to be done to stop him.

Protesting is a full time job!

Someone's going to have to pay for all those babysitters!

I guess the question to ask yourself is, without $33 million dollars how would it have played out different?


The Soros cash was also put to work driving buzzwords and social media campaigns to propel Ferguson into the national consciousness.

Any time "social media" and "national consciousness" are spoken in the same sentence, I want to jump off a bridge.

Dear lord...

Here's what else the Washington Times said:


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.

In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.


So groups that receive money from one of Soros' foundations (there's a bunch of them as I'm sure you know) "emboldened" protesters? What does that mean? As I understand it, the word "embolden" is actually GOP lingo for "caused something to happen in some way we can't explain." Is Soros able to see the future? According to the Times, he dedicated "years of funding" in anticipation of Michael Brown being shot dead in the streets of Ferguson? Well I guess we know how he got rich!

Here I thought you were all for billionaires using their money to influence the public? I've never seen anything but defense of the Koch brothers from you and the Koch brothers not only fund Tea Party groups, but FOUNDED the granddaddy of them all, CSE (Citizens for a Sound Economy).

Can we then agree that by your logic, the Tea Party operates at the direction of the Koch brothers? Or do you think the Kochs "pour money into something for nothing?" I'm just curious how anyone can reconcile these seemingly contradictory positions!

Oh well, what can you expect from a newspaper that was founded to manufacture conservative propaganda by a Korean cult leader and self-professed messiah (Sun Myung Moon)?

George Soros spent $33MILLION bankrolling Ferguson

I'm having a hard time understanding the psychology behind something like that. Why would anyone bankroll riots? How does it help his own bank account? I can see people with big $$$ bankrolling things that would help their own bottom line in the long run but I'm not seeing how this could. Was it just for political gain? And if so, how does that political gain help his bottom line? Isn't that what it's all about, the bottom line?? I'm trying to follow this logic, and I'm having a hard time doing so.

People may scratch their heads and ask why would Soros foundations care about racist tension in mid USA? They don't care one bit, they do care about eroding nationalism wherever it exists and will throw money at it worldwide. Racism is a dividing issue in the US and erodes nationalism. Notice how they attempted to make it a nationwide movement, involving major cities, celebrities, professional sports, paid talking heads to go on news shows etc.

For all the money and effort they threw at it, it died out because it wasn't genuine. This stuff works far better in other countries with fewer freedoms and many more multiple tensions.

These people think they are bigger than nations. They view nations as annoying precincts with business stagnating laws and regulations which hinder their global view of how commerce should function. Oh it is all about money just not in the immediate future. They seem to function as the bulldozers paving the way for that eventual structure affectionately known around here as the NWO. Oh and the corporations are not the masters, the corporations are the ones bowing in servitude to these social engineers.

Next time you see any protest and feel the desire to join in, pat yourself on the back for being an NWO drone dancing when they called for you to dance.

You tried your best to provide a conflicting opinion based upon fact, but I am confused as to believe your opinion or to fortify my opinion based upon the additional information that you provided from the source?

I am also more confused by your attempt to paint the evil Tea Party and the Koch brothers as the culprits of something they had nothing to do with nor the purpose of the OP.

Perhaps I am just sensing desperation in covering up a negative of wrong doing from your aisle of church?

Yes, the revolutionary socialist playbook, incite a class war by inciting a race war.

As you say, unindoctrinated people will have none of it here in the US. Even indoctrinated soft socialists are beginning to educate themselves and that is the key.

Once they start to actually understand what socialism is, they quickly distance themselves from it and declare that they prefer some 'third way' and frequently choose to consider themselves 'progressives'. Give it time and these folks will mostly come around.

Then there are the lifelong socialists for whom private property is an affront to their sensibilities and they will never be satisfied until free markets are destroyed and totalitarianism can provide them with the 'clay' to mold their utopia by any means necessary.

The claim made in the OP is that George Soros orchestrated the events in Ferguson. This is supported by an article, based on another article (the Washington Times article) which more or less makes the same claims except the author knows he can't actually connect all the dots so instead falls back on what amounts to guilt by association. Furthermore, if you'll notice, there is not one mention of a specific date when any of these groups descended on Ferguson. This would seem particularly important in support of a statement like this:

"The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre."

This sentence seems to say that without George Soros' money, the events in Ferguson would have been a "one-day criminal event." Do you agree that the timeline is important? A large chunk of the evidence for this claim seems to be on page two of the article. So when did these 500 people arrive in Ferguson?

According by Akiba Solomon, at Colorlines, the #BlackLivesMatter group showed up on August 30th. This is 21 days after the shooting and 5 days after the Michael Brown funeral. Clearly, this particular bus load of Soros-funded liberal n'er-do-wells couldn't have been responsible.

By the author's own admission, Soros funded foundations like Tides and OSF have been doling out grants to some of these activist groups for years, well before Ferguson. Is it really surprising that among the many many "social justice" groups that receive grants from these groups, that they would be among the groups involved in the months of activism in Ferguson?

I'm reminded of something that comes up a lot in science threads when people are discussing studies: correlation does not imply causation. Would Ferguson have been a national news item without these groups? Would these groups exist without Soros? Did Soros direct their actions?


I am also more confused by your attempt to paint the evil Tea Party and the Koch brothers as the culprits of something they had nothing to do with nor the purpose of the OP.


That was specifically directed at Xeuchen, who I was replying to. He's a tireless defender of the Koch brothers and the grass-roots origins and nature of the Tea Party. I was simply pointing out that if equal standards are applied, his opinion of the Tea Party "movement" should definitely be that it's astroturfing created and controlled by the Kochs.


Perhaps I am just sensing desperation in covering up a negative of wrong doing from your aisle of church?


Why is pointing out the dubious nature of the assertions in the OP "desperation?" I see you're still pretending to be an "independent."

The police turn it into something more than a peaceful protest. When they started beating up peaceful protestors and press. Fine arrest the bad ones. They attacked everyone. They escalated it. It was what they wanted. They though if they made it go out of control. Then arrest many they would disperse and it would be over. They were wrong. Police caused it, then caused it to escalate. Brutality will not be accepted, when that was why they were protesting to begin with. Shows how stupid they are.

It is difficult to argue with belief.

Let's forget that the OP sources a tabloid article as evidence.

Let's forget the wild leaps of logic required to make anything from these scraps of facts.

George Soros' foundations support literally hundreds of causes he believes in as is his right. If he weren't one of the favorite demonized figures of the Right, they'd be lauding his "using his money as he wishes" since, as you well know, money and those who possess it are their actual deities.

Let's forget that Mr. Soros' foundations have been supporting these groups since the 90s.

Let's forget that this is nothing more than an email that's been circling the bowl of the right-wing echo chamber for months (see Snopes' reference back in January). (Yes, we know that Mr. Soros "owns" Snopes ... but the fact of the date of reference is the important one.)

Let's forget that there is NO EVIDENCE that ties the Soros foundations to these alleged actions. None.

Let's forget that there were legitimate protests in both communities over government overreach and abuse of police power.

There will be no reasonable legitimate conversation here, because the word "Soros" is one that has been embedded deep and is keyed to cause outrage and irrationality ... as you can see.

Talk about "Alinskyan" tactics.

It is difficult to argue with belief; it's even harder to argue with programming.

Best,

I just read about this online. The "intelHub" has some more information and even a video of some protesters yelling and accusing the founder of MORE, Jeff Ordower, of not paying them as they were promised.

www.intellihub.com...

And as to the claim that the SOROS funding did not pay them to protest...

Here is another link showing pictures of more tweets of protesters demanding being paid.
