Y’all remember how the former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — boy that sounds awesome — can I type it again? The FORMER Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — such a calming feeling.
Ok, break time over.
Remember all Reid’s tirades about the “un-American” Koch Brothers and how they were using their money to destroy America? If you recall, we wrote how the villainous Koch Brothers were funding scholarship programs for the United Negro College Fund. Well, the liberal progressive counterpart is quite telling.
As reported by The Washington Times, “There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets. Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org. “
“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.”
“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.”
So of course this is a story you won’t hear on mainstream media. And imagine what would be said if an individual were funding millions to the Constitutional Conservative grassroots movement to riot and protest (not that those folks ever do of course). Who exactly are the radicals and extremists?
Where is the outcry from Reid and the leftist progressives about this perversion of political money?
Once again, liberal hypocrisy is in full bloom. It never ceases to amaze me how there are rules for the GOP, rules for conservatives and no rules for progressive socialists.
