George Soros Financed Anti-Trump Protests

George Soros Financed Anti-Trump Protests

by Stephen Lendman

Soros is one of the world’s most infamous figures, an international con man profiting from human misery, supporting color revolutions and wars to serve his interests.

He menaces fundamental freedoms worldwide, supports anything that smells money, once saying “(w)e need a global sheriff,” perhaps with himself in mind. 

As a market participant, he’s unconcerned about the consequences of his actions. He supported war goddess/Wall Street favorite Hillary for president, contributing millions of dollars to her campaign.

At the same time, he’s militantly anti-Trump, earlier involved in financing hooligans disrupting some of his campaign events, using violence and other dirty tricks to turn voters against him - unsuccessfully as things turned out.

Moscow’s Prosecutor General earlier called his Open Society Institute and Open Society Institute Assistance Foundations “threat(s) to Russian national security and constitutional order.”

He’s now financing Kiev Euromaidan-style anti-Trump protests in US cities, including laying siege to Trump Tower in Manhattan.

MoveOn.org is a Soros front group, involved with other dubious NGOs in what’s happening, issuing a disruptive post-election press release, saying:

“Americans to Come Together in Hundreds Peaceful Gatherings of Solidarity, Resistance, and Resolve Following Election Results”

“Hundreds of Americans, dozens of organizations to gather peacefully outside the White House and in cities and towns nationwide to take a continued stand against misogyny, racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia.”

“Tonight, thousands of Americans will come together at hundreds of peaceful gatherings in cities and towns across the nation, including outside the White House, following the results of Tuesday’s presidential election.

The gatherings - organized by MoveOn.org and allies - will affirm a continued rejection of Donald Trump’s bigotry, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and misogyny and demonstrate our resolve to fight together for the America we still believe is possible.”

Its call mobilized scores of nationwide protests, continuing over the weekend, its email to staff, calling Tuesday’s election a “disaster,” adding:

“The new president-elect and many of his most prominent supporters have targeted, demeaned, and threatened millions of us - and millions of our friends, family, and loved ones.” 

“Both chambers of Congress remain in Republican hands. We are entering an era of profound and unprecedented challenge, a time of danger for our communities and our country.” 

“In this moment, we have to take care of ourselves, our families, and our friends - especially those of us who are on the front lines facing hate, including Latinos, women, immigrants, refugees, Black people, Muslims, LGBT Americans, and so many others. And we need to make it clear that we will continue to stand together.”

Seattle-based Washington Community Action Network ran the following Craigslist.org ad, saying:

“Fight the Trump Agenda! We're hiring Full-Time Organizers 15/hr! (Seattle)”

“Washington CAN! is our state’s oldest and largest Grassroots Non-Profit. We’ve been organizing and winning on the local and national level for over 35 years on issues such as Racial, Social, and Economic Justice, Health Care, Immigration Reform, Tax Fairness, and a Living Wage for all workers.”

“We are looking for motivated individuals who are seeking Full-Time, Part-Time, and Permanent positions.” 

“Our Paid-Training Program is the best around. We will teach you the skills you need to succeed. The combined experience of our management team is over 50 years.”

“At Washington CAN! you will work at our Home Office here in Seattle. You will regularly meet with our Organizers, Lobbyists, and Executive Director, and have a real sense of being directly involved in our work.”

“We provide benefits in Medical, Dental, Vision, 401(k), Paid Vacation, Paid Sick Days, Holidays, and Leave of Absence. Advancement and Travel Opportunities are available as well. Staff average pay is $15-20 an hour.”

It added phone numbers to call and names of individuals to ask for.

Soros funding is likely behind all or most anti-Trump protests nationwide, using Move.On and other dubious NGOs, profiting from disruption - perhaps wanting election results annulled, Hillary installed as president.

Like him or not, he won. Hillary lost. All the Soros billions and all his mischief won't put her in the White House instead of him. On January 20, he’ll succeed Obama. How he’ll govern remains to be seen.
