Just like Ukraine and Ferguson, riots in Baltimore are being funded by George Soros
Baltimore has erupted into chaos after Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African-American, suffered injuries when in police custody which ultimately led to his death last week, sparking riots across the city.
Gray was taken in by police on April 12 and, while police maintain that he was arrested ‘without force’, he suffered a serious spinal cord injury and fell into a coma. Surgical attempts to save his life were unsuccessful, and he died from injuries a week later.
Citizens who are fed up of with an oppressive police force which has an awful track record of abuse and brutality, especially towards the black community, took to the streets to make their voices heard upon the announcement of his death.
However, since his funeral on Monday April 27, protests have turned violent with Baltimore now engulfed in riots which have left the city resembling a warzone. Looting local businesses, trashing vehicles and destroying public property have heavily brought into question the protestors’ motives of such an aggression and how this helps the situation but it becomes a lot clearer when we see who is behind it.
What everybody needs to realize is that these riots are not just spontaneous uprisings from a handful of civilians, nor some organic social movement but rather a systematically funded political endeavor by billionaire George Soros.
The sad fact of the matter is that the rioters who believe they are fighting for social justice are being funded and played by the very people they are protesting against.
Just a few months ago, it was revealed that Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grassroots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.
The Washington Times revealed that Soros pumped millions into groups that transported protesters to Ferguson from around the United States and coordinated campaigns to keep it as a leading topic across the country’s media outlets.
The article by the Washington Times stated:
Other Soros-funded groups made it their job to remotely monitor and exploit anything related to the incident that they could portray as a conservative misstep, and to develop academic research and editorials to disseminate to the news media to keep the story alive.
The director of Soros’s fund said that they have no direct control over the groups they give to, and said they are all trying to improve accountability.
He told the Washington Times: “Helping groups combine policy, research [and] data collection with community organizing feels very much the way our society becomes more accountable.
“The incidents, whether in Staten Island, Cleveland or Ferguson, were spontaneous protests – we don’t have the ability to control or dictate what others say or choose to say.”
Money from Soros went towards creating and driving key ‘buzzwords’ and online campaigns to embed Ferguson into the national consciousness.
One recipient of his funding is the Organization for Black Struggle, which in turned established a group called the Hands Up Coalition, that has helped make ubiquitous the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ slogan.
The article continues:
The plethora of organizations involved not only shared Mr. Soros‘ funding, but they also fed off each other, using content and buzzwords developed by one organization on another’s website, referencing each other’s news columns and by creating a social media echo chamber of Facebook “likes” and Twitter hashtags that dominated the mainstream media and personal online newsfeeds.
Buses of activists from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in Chicago; from the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York and Equal Justice USA from New York; from Sojourners, the Advancement Project and Center for Community Change in Washington; and networks from the Gamaliel Foundation — all funded in part by Mr. Soros — descended on Ferguson starting in August and later organized protests and gatherings in the city until late last month.
Soros does not only instigate violence and unrest in line with his own agenda in America – last year, during the uprisings in Ukraine, the billionaire openly admitted that he was fully behind the overthrow of the country’s legally elected government, just as he has been interfering in Russia-linked nations since the 1980s
On CNN, Fareed Zakaria asked Soros about his interventions in other nations’ affairs some decades ago:
“First on Ukraine, one of the things that many people recognized about you was that you during the revolutions of 1989 funded a lot of dissident activities, civil society groups in eastern Europe and Poland, the Czech Republic. Are you doing similar things in Ukraine?”
“Well, I set up a foundation in Ukraine before Ukraine became independent of Russia. And the foundation has been functioning ever since and played an important part in events now,” Soros responded.
As Hang the Bankers reported:
It is well-known, although forbidden for the establishment media to mention, that Soros worked closely with USAID, the National Endowment for Democracy (now doing work formerly assigned to the CIA), the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, the Freedom House, and the Albert Einstein Institute to initiate a series of color revolutions in Eastern Europe and Central Asia following the engineered collapse of the Soviet Union.”
“Many of the participants in Kiev’s ‘EuroMaidan’ demonstrations were members of Soros-funded NGOs and/or were trained by the same NGOs in the many workshops and conferences sponsored by Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation (IRF), and his various Open Society institutes and foundations. The IRF, founded and funded by Soros, boasts that it has given ‘more than any other donor organization’ to ‘democratic transformation’ of Ukraine,” writes William F. Jasper.
Now, the Baltimore branch of the very same organization through which Soros funded the riots in Ferguson and Ukraine are at the forefront of the situation in Baltimore.
As stated on the organization’s website: “Until 2005, the Open Society Institute–Baltimore was funded solely by George Soros.”
On Tuesday, the Open Society Foundation’s social media channels openly justified the violence in the streets towards police officers. Its Facebook page posted a Vox article which claimed that violent protests were the most rational solution and that anybody that questioned it were ignorant.
“This is the perfect response to anyone calling for nonviolence in Baltimore,” followed by another post on Twitter titled, “The important thing everyone calling for nonviolence in Baltimore fails to say.”
What is the purpose of funding violence?
It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book; divide and conquer.
The aim is to bring civil unrest to America from which the same organizations will then pick up the pieces resulting in fewer liberties for the everyday citizen.
As Adan Salazar wrote in a recent article, “the only logical response to riots, looting and destruction of private property is a more heavy-handed police crackdown, manifested in Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s recent decision to deploy the National Guard.
“While police violence on citizens of Baltimore is in no way justifiable, violent protests and attacks on police will merely serve to increase police forces and justify a militarized response.”
The issue of police brutality is a huge problem in Baltimore and must be addressed. This is reflected by the fact that the city has paid out close to $5.7 million since 2011 to victims of violence at the hands of those supposedly meant to keep the peace.
However, violent riots will only move to ensure that Americans will demand more government, more armed police and less civil liberties, which is exactly what Soros and other elitists intend.
