Globalist Soros Exposed Funding Over 50 Organizations in Women’s March on DC

Washington, D.C. – An investigation by a New York Times affiliate has revealed that billionaire globalist financier George Soros, who recently called Donald Trump a “would-be dictator” during an interview at Davos, and whose Open Society Foundation works to finance and forward progressive causes across the world, and is intimately connected to numerous color revolutions, the Arab Spring, and various other political uprisings across the globe, has been revealed to be connected to more than 50 of the groups that organized the nationwide “Women’s Marches” that saw millions of Americans take to the streets across the country.

The march’s official website says, “We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.” Many people turned out to be a manifestation of that ideal, but it’s important to understand the reality of what is happening on a strategic political level as an inorganic politically contrived and funded event. This, in no way, takes away from the validity of standing up for women’s issues but is important to note that women are being used as pawns in a larger ideological political game that has international overtones of power politics.

These marches were largely billed as “spontaneous” and “grassroots” actions, by publications like The Guardian and Vox. However, the reality exposed by an investigation by self-described liberal feminist Asra Q. Nomani, writing for New York Times affiliate Women in the World, revealed that after studying the “funding, politics and talking points of the some 403 groups that are ‘partners’ of the march,” contrary to the non-partisan rhetoric used in these marches, they were not really “women’s march” but were rather “for women who are anti-Trump.”

Nomani reveals that the “Women’s Marches” were actually organized as political tools to be used to strategically forward a progressive political agenda against President Donald Trump — exposing the protests to largely be an organized, top-down driven political operation — and not an organic movement of concerned Americans taking to the streets as reported by the mainstream media.

According to Nomani’s Women in the World/New York Times report:

Following the money, I poured through documents of billionaire George Soros and his Open Society philanthropy, because I wondered: What is the link between one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors and the “Women’s March”?

I found out: plenty.

By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. March organizers and the organizations identified here haven’t yet returned queries for comment…

Much like post-election protests, which included a sign, “Kill Trump,” were not “spontaneous,” as reported by some media outlets, the “Women’s March” is an extension of strategic identity politics that has so fractured America today, from campuses to communities. On the left or the right, it’s wrong. But, with the inauguration, we know the politics. With the march, “women” have been appropriated for a clearly anti-Trump day. When I shared my thoughts with her, my yoga studio owner said it was “sad” the march’s organizers masked their politics. “I want love for everyone,” she said.

The way Soros operates is as an “ideological philanthropist,” whose Open Society Foundation provides funding for organizations whose interests align with his own, and which blurs the line between political advocacy and social justice – thus being able to leverage selected/funded social justice organizations to affect political discourse.

This method is confirmed in a memo released by WikiLeaks, which was sent to Soros by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The Clinton campaign reveals the political motives behind using grassroots organizations to “control political discourse.” Podesta wrote to Soros that he wanted to “better utilize these networks to drive the content of politics through a strong echo chamber.”

“Control the political discourse. So much effort over the past few years has been focused on better coordinating, strengthening, and developing progressive institutions and leaders. Now that this enhanced infrastructure is in place—grassroots organizing; multi-issue advocacy groups; think tanks; youth outreach; faith communities; micro-targeting outfits; the netroots and blogosphere—we need to better utilize these networks to drive the content of politics through a strong “echo chamber” and message delivery system.”

Anyone familiar with the history of the Soros Open Society Foundations in Eastern Europe and around the world since the late 1980’s, will know that his supposedly philanthropic “democracy-building” projects in Poland, Russia, or Ukraine in the 1990’s allowed Soros the businessman to literally plunder the former communist countries’ wealth, according to the New Eastern Outlook.

A report in New Eastern Outlook reveald exactly how Soros-affiliated organizations across the world operate:

The totality of what is revealed in the three hacked documents show that Soros is effectively the puppet-master pulling most of the strings in Kiev. Soros Foundation’s Ukraine branch, International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) has been involved in Ukraine since 1989. His IRF doled out more than $100 million to Ukrainian NGOs two years before the fall of the Soviet Union, creating the preconditions for Ukraine’s independence from Russia in 1991. Soros also admitted to financing the 2013-2014 Maidan Square protests that brought the current government into power.

Soros’ foundations were also deeply involved in the 2004 Orange Revolution that brought the corrupt but pro-NATO Viktor Yushchenko into power with his American wife who had been in the US State Department. In 2004 just weeks after Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation had succeeded in getting Viktor Yushchenko as President of Ukraine, Michael McFaul wrote an OpEd for the Washington Post. McFaul, a specialist in organizing color revolutions, who later became US Ambassador to Russia, revealed:

Did Americans meddle in the internal affairs of Ukraine? Yes. The American agents of influence would prefer different language to describe their activities — democratic assistance, democracy promotion, civil society support, etc. — but their work, however labeled, seeks to influence political change in Ukraine.

Additionally, during the 2016 presidential cycle, Soros committed $25 million dollars to the 2016 campaign of Hillary Clinton. Per the standard Clinton operating procedure, this was indicative of the symbiotic relationship of favors between the billionaire and his array of political puppets across the globe.

Soros has often been accused of using his wealth to attempt to socially engineer the national domestic politics of entire states. He was accused of being connected to organizations that organized and funded the nationwide protests after the election of Donald Trump — a claim that Soros denies.

“There have been many false reports about George Soros and the Open Society Foundations funding protests in the wake of the U.S. presidential elections. There is no truth to these reports,” said a spokewoman from Soros’s Open Society Foundations in a statement, adding, “We support a wide range of organizations — including those that support women and minorities who have historically been denied equal rights. Many of whom are concerned about what policy changes may lie ahead. We are proud of their work. We of course support the right of all Americans to peaceably assemble and petition their government—a vital, and constitutionally safeguarded, pillar of a functioning democracy.”

Make no mistake that the events you’re seeing transpire nationwide are largely being coordinated, in part, by a billionaire political elite class that is looking to strategically forward a political agenda. Soros has used the same formula to foment domestic unrest to affect political goals in numerous nations –and it certainly looks as if he now has the United States in his sights. It’s clear that Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals is being employed by the left in an effort to destabilize and undermine political discourse in the U.S.

Women’s rights are unquestionably a human rights issues, not a political issue, which makes it disappointing that we, as free individuals, don’t organically create manifestations like these large-scale marches, without oligarchs and their vested political interests essentially making it happen as a means of forwarding their particular ideologically driven political agenda.

    Why else would he spend so much money? He’s been BAD FOR AMERICA FOR HOW LONG NOW? Show America this MANIPULATOR now! EVIL, PURE EVIL!

    • TeslaFan

      Soros is a humanitarian. Humanitarianism (his side) and evil (your side) don’t go together. You are either deluded, a paid shill, or just evil yourself. No wonder he irritates you. Guilty much?

      • BeeTheChange

        “Most of us have never heard of Soros…” – TeslaFan.

        Soros is not a humanitarian. He funds terrorism all over the world for the purpose of social unrest and toppling governments. Arab Spring, Black Lives Matter, Ferguson… are three of his personal bests, there are many others. He admits these things and stated he doesn’t care what the outcomes of his actions are. He’s a globalist who is fomenting one world government by destabilzing countries. You might try getting informed about exactly what you’re supporting.

      • billdeserthills

        George Soros has collapsed the economy in several countries–That serves to make the ‘little people’ even poorer than they started out.

        Only a mixed-up person, or a George Soros shill would bother to suggest he is a Humanitarian–
        I hope you don’t think George sold jews out to the nazis in order to help them??

  • Joe Adair

    Gee, those marches were awful.

    • Anna Van Z

      Yes, what could be more dreadful than citizens from all walks of life participating in their constitutionally-guaranteed civil rights! Eeeeeek!!!! /snark.

      • john robel

        I’ll tell ya what— if some left wing pussy son of a bitch tried to stop me from going to the inauguration, they would have gotten a face full of bear spray. Your rights end where mine begin, and I WILL defend them.

        • TeslaFan

          nobody cares what you do, john. nobody.

        • Anna Van Z

          Who cares what you do? Not us!

  • kathy

    I was skeptical about what the main march was about, which seemed to be a protest against the POTUS. Now, I am not a Drumpf supporter, but the thought of HRC gaining the presidency scared the shit outta me. This whole past election cycle resembled nothing more than the dividing and manipulating of the american public, and with the DNC falling apart from the information in the leaked emails, what better way to pull the people together than at an anti-Drumpf rally? More manipulations to come, I am sure, but maybe, just maybe, if we are very, very vigilant, we can break through the propaganda of the corpocracy and find truth and healing, thefreethoughtproject.com is one of the helpers, thanks!

    • Sandra J Scoggin

      I totally agree. Spot on

    • bea ware

      This freethouightproject is a thinly disguised alt right org. Trump is not draining the swamp but is trying to load it with alligators. Most are either big oil execs (Tillerson) friendly with Putin, like his puppet Trump,or Wall Street sharks (Mnuchin)

    • Patricia Trapasso

      Yes, we do need to be very, very vigilant! Soros’ agenda is to push USA into his One World Order plan. Obama was part (and maybe a President or two before him) of it putting building blocks into place. Making USA part of One World Order basically completely eliminates USA and puts all countries into one umbrella (same laws, same rights, etc). It’s a real nightmare and not something Americans would be happy with. Soros

  • junktex

    And they left one helluva mess.A shame Soros didn’t fund the cleanup.

    • Anna Van Z

      Maybe you should go clean it up….

        • Anna Van Z

          Just like MY taxes clean up wingnut messes every fucking day. Get over it.

  • Susan M.

    Soros is “connected” to groups like Planned Parenthood; Amnesty International; Human Rights Watch; and the ACLU. So that is enough to show a “smoking gun” that he personally masterminded the Women’s March on Washington? He donated to those groups. To whom else would you like him to donate? I’ve learned more about the “evil mastermind” George Soros from your article than I’ve ever heard about him before. The only thing I can find bad to say about Soros is that he supported Hillary Clinton. (This doesn’t mean I like or support Trump.) Reading through your article with a critical mind, I find it to be a pretty trashy piece of journalism–not at all what I expect from the Free Thought Project.

    • Anna Van Z

      Gee, the ACLU – people who want to uphold the Constitution and civil rights – what kinda un-american bullshit is that??!! How DARE these uppity citizens think they have rights!! /snark

      • Susan M.

        Anna Van Z: Apparently you misunderstood my remarks about George Soros. I did some research on him to understand why he is portrayed as the “puppet master” of so many protest marches, even by the usually progressive independent press. And lo! I find that he is supporting all these progressive causes that help these uppity citizens try to protect their rights! I can understand why that would alienate the MSM, but what I can’t understand is why the progressive press, like the Free Thought Project, would parrot their propaganda. Basically, I was trying to say what you said, much better, in your piece. We are in agreement.

        • Anna Van Z

          Thanks, I didn’t see that at first.

      • billdeserthills

        George Soros is directly responsible for the English and the Aussies loss of their gun rights
        You aren’t much really into peoples rights if you think that is OK

      Couldn’t agree more.

    • jerry kustich

      Wow…all those evil organizations!! I notice he doesn’t fund the KKK.

  • pappy450

    So someone out there PLEASE tell me WHY this a-hole and his minions haven’t been arrested for inciting and FINANCING all these riots? His tampering with everything is well-known. (including the last Presidential election) SO why wasn’t THIS mentioned? (oh I know because he was trying to get HITLERY elected and be his next “puppet”) Putin wants his Butt on a platter, (there IS an arrest warrant) so WHY don’t we make “nice” and send him and his minions over there and let RUSSIA “deal with him” Would probably do good for “foreign relations” and we could get rid of a festering sore on America.

      Works fer me!

    • john robel

      Yeah Pappy, right on. Seems to me TREASON is encouraged by toleration. Obama, killary cunton, soros, and a shitload of others should be tried and EXECTED for TREASON. Or,r send Putin (I don’t like or trust him) money for the ammo fund to just shoot Soros and make him “disappear”.i

    • Anna Van Z

      • pappy450

        Independent thought is one thing…Brainwashing by a KNOWN Nazi sympathizer is yet another.
        Welcome to the world of SOROS and his bribe money. (isn’t it amazing how dollar bills can turn someone into a brainless idiot that is unable to think for themselves?)
        Try it sometime, maybe things might become clearer to you how OSCUMBAG turned you into a DRONE.

  • Seth Tyrssen

    Soros is a Reptilian if ever I saw one. Even if ya don’t believe all that Reptilian stuff, you can look at this guy and think, “hmmm, yeah, I could see that…” This is the most evil guy on the planet. He also paid for a lot of those “spontaneous” riots we had last year. Why would he be so dedicated to keeping us violently divided? Well, go back to my first sentence … 😉

    • Tom F

      It’s all about enriching himself at our expense. Learn who he really is and how he has operated all his life. A Jew, during Nazi occupation, he helped Nazis track down Jews and steal their wealth – to get a cut for himself.

  • Anna Van Z

    You are extremely misinformed, and the assertion that women are somehow the simpleton tools of billionaires is insulting, ignorant, and and completely unfounded. You weren’t part of it, but I was, and as anyone who was part of it knows, the groups who were wanting to go and needing funds were emailing around to various lists, trying to raise enough funds from individual contributors. Somehow they didn’t mention their “billionaire backers”.

    The signs were individual, the groups diverse, and even actual msm were acknowledging the individuality, the homemade signs. This wasn’t organized by anyone but the member groups the themselves, and we are not dupes or tools of anyone – unlike the partisans on sites like this. SHAME ON YOU. You wouldn’t know “free thought” if it jumped up and bit you on the ass.

    But I will thank you for this – the fact that the so-called alt-right has to resort to panicked propaganda in the attempt to discredit and minimize the massive turnout from all walks of life PROVES how scared they really are. And women on the march? Oooh, scary! And the fact that this rattles y’all pleases me immensely.

    Oh, one more thing: GET USED TO IT.

    • TeslaFan

      Well said! Couldn’t agree more.

      • john robel

        Thank You, I know I’m well spoken. If glory hole steinem worked for the CIA, it was as an available whore. She couldn’t safely sharpen a pencil.

    • AnotherLover

      We are used to it. Gloria Steinem was at the march! You can watch her discussing the CIA’s role in funding her work, and how that funding convinced her of how enlightened the CIA was “during the Kennedy era.” She actually said that with a straight face. Good one, Gloria.

      So, again — it goes way back — grassroots and all, it’s the controllers’ garden, it’s their playing field. If they want you to bloom they grow you. If they don’t want you to grow they shade you. I wouldn’t dismiss the points made in this piece with over-generality and over-simplification. The author has made it clear he agrees with much of what you’re saying and sees the merit in the issue. He’s already offered you all you’re demanding except the over-simplification of the marches’ genesis. You’re saying it’s one thing, it’s grassroots. He agrees — he made that clear. But you’re saying it’s only one thing. He’s offered documentation in evidence to the contrary.

      • TeslaFan

        I don’t trust her either but that doesn’t take away from the power of millions of people who came together on Saturday to make a statement heard round the world. Who cares about Gloria Steinem?

        • john robel

          WHAT STATEMENT heard “round the world”? LOL Hey Gloria, bring me a beer and show me your tits with a “bunny dip” bitch and do it right now.

        • bea ware

          Exactamundo!

      • Anna Van Z

        SO?? What does this have to do with the millions of other people who attended worldwide?! FYI: The march wasn’t about Gloria Steinem!

        • AnotherLover

          Yeah well hippies would say the say thing after I tell them how much the CIA and others crafted their miraculous movement. A far less compelling but equally discordant movement is the birth of gangsta rap , which was also fueled by another CIA-produced new drug.

          There’s so much to say but the long and short of it is this: if we all had houses, and weren’t two paychecks away from the street at all times making a dollar out of fifty cents to make ends meet, I think we might have a shot at a society that’s capable of philosophy and debate — an emotional and intellectual maturity is required for this to happen. I’ve spent my whole life trying to engage people in philosophical discussions. Over the years I got sparse reply overall but now I’m seeing the “philosophers” come out — the parroters of rightthink whose unsound philosophical and logical convolutions have fangs that will only inevitably entangle their own tails — come out to “share,” ie to “force the acceptance of,” their “philosophy,” ie, that shtick they trot out, its logical topography convoluted out of the 3rd dimension entirely in order to match the constrains and demands of the rightthink, existing only as a bit of imaginary flight yet that will be met with applause, acceptance, and recognition if it ends up supporting rightthink.

          I don’t think debate is possible when we’re hypersensitive to arguments that might support a conclusion different from our own. Childish accusations of “racism” and “sexism” just make me sad. Our debate platform in this society is the gutter if it’s not the sandbox. Harmonious, meritorious, and equitable relations between the sexes is an idea that has obvious merit and that most reasonable people support. The same can be said for race relations. And guess what? While we’re getting that all straightened out the very rich only get richer leaving less for us to fight over. We’re extorted out of our houses and a paycheck or two away from the cold dirt of the freeway underpass. And what are we doin’? Workin’ on talkin’ right and thinkin’ right. Sheesh.

          This is getting too long for me to bring back round to the point so I’m just gonna cut it off here. Cheers 🙂

          • BeeTheChange

            “The hippies” (meaning you were not one so you are only observing from the sidelines) would not say the same thing because that movement was not crafted by the CIA; it was only later co-opted by the CIA once it started to grow legs on its merits. Leary and his CIA operatives jumped on the bandwagon precisely because the movement threatened to topple the entire establishment. They realized the power of music married to an idea, thus we have gangsta, etc. and other manifestations of what the CIA learned from the hippie movement after they destroyed it using their operatives, Charles Manson and his group of CIA mind-controlled zombies. They’re still doing this and still getting away with it, as we see.

          • AnotherLover

            Respectfully: No, they started it with acid. The CIA ordered 10 kgs from Sandoz at a time only a few milligrams had ever been produced in the history of the world. Their top domestic producer of all manner of drugs including copious lsd — one Owsely Stanley — received a pretty light sentence when his lab was busted — not sure he spent any time in jail for it, but his lab equipment was returned to him, along with monetary recompensation for his losses.

            Funny you bring up Manson, because his story smacks of CIA cult-forming practices the whole scene was awash in. Read Dave McGowan, RIP, on the subject. He also wrote Programmed to Kill, which is about all those weird serial killers that littered the landscape in the 70’s and 80’s. Forget “psychic driving” in a lab in Canada — hardcore psychedelics were being tested on unwitting subjects in places like San Fransisco as part of MK Ultra research. And what are we to make of Sirhan Sirhan staring off into space in front of Kennedy and firing randomly while Kennedy was shot from behind? Square that up with the likes of Derren Brown on BBC TV:
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMjc-fDVowk

            Anyway maybe that’s all getting off-topic. The point is the drugs didn’t slip in through the cracks — uncontrollable by law enforcement — they were let in through the opened doors. And, just as Owsley is said to have famously argued himself as recorded by Tom Wolfe: the lsd, not the love and unity and hippie idealism, made the movement what it was.

            And remember, it was the hippies themselves that co-opted the peace movement — as many contemporaries such as Abbie Hoffman pointed out at the time: “There were all these activists, you know, Berkeley
            radicals, White Panthers … all trying to stop the war and change things
            for the better. Then we got flooded with all these ‘flower children’ who
            were into drugs and sex. Where the hell did the hippies come from?!”
            http://www.mygen.com/Laurel_Canyon-David_McGowan_report.htm
            (I haven’t read this page — just found it — but I like it so far. They summarize the points McGowan makes in Weird Scenes in the Canyon, which is a fantastic approach to the book) The anti-war scene was well underway and it involved respected and respectable college students and professors. Enter the hippie. They co-opted the anti-war movement from a group of academics and serious, capable, and concerned citizens, and clutched it so tightly even their memory alone retains its grasp on the narrative of history. The hippies did nothing to end the war. They just made a spectacle, flipped out irretrievably every so often, and spun in circles in those regards. In other regards they made a great impact — socially. But not so much politically. And, don’t worry — I love and live by hippies’ ideals and philosophies, and I don’t mean to understate their cultural contributions, which are still in bloom, frankly — but they didn’t help the anti-war effort but made it an untouchable spectacle instead. That’s my two bits 🙂

          • BeeTheChange

            Interesting take on things AL, although I’m guessing most of it came from reading and not actually participating. Which is fine if it’s all you have to go on, but I rely on memory of actual participation and it wasn’t quite the way you describe, nor do the few things I read on the topic since those years mirror the way i remember things to be. Much depends on where you were at the time and what you saw and did, but those experiences form the basis of my opinions because I was actually there, marching and getting gassed and arrested, and I have no need to rely on someone’s research or biased POV.

            There may be actual evidence (or maybe they are just lies like everything else issuing from the CIA) that the CIA started the hippie movement, perhaps in California/Berkeley and/or other major urban areas, and perhaps it spread out from there and took root on the college campuses across the country. Not everyone did acid and that was certainly not a requirement or some kind of rite of passage. Some people just enjoyed exercising their personal freedom after being raised within strict, post-war cultural, gender and religious boundaries.

            Whether the hippies upset Abbie Hoffman or other uber-serious radicals is of no consequence; Abbie, the SDS, etc. did not own the desire for peace. Millions of people were horrified by the war and did everything they could to stop it. The “serious” radicals were breaking laws and weren’t getting anything but bad press and making normal Americans angry, until the hippies joined in and made it about love instead of anger. Your “untouchable spectacle” comment is prejudiced and without merit- that was the opinion held by people who remained part of the straight world, outsiders looking in, mostly with a bit of jealousy and envy, those people who did not participate in ending the war because they were afraid to buck the system. Regardless, the war ended and that was all that mattered at the time. No one cared about taking credit, only that we stopped destroying the Vietnamese people and their once beautiful countryside, and the demoralized, battered troops came home.

            The CIA had a hard time combating the “peace and love” message because the hippies had it right. The CIA had to resort to murder to turn the public against the hippie movement by insinuating that all hippies were potential psychopathic killers. Total nonsense, but people bought it, just like they buy the CIA lies now. People love to bash the hippies as lost, sex-crazed loonies when in fact the CIA were and still are deranged, paranoid murderers with no moral code and zero liability. That’s the real take-away of the peace movement, and the CIA’s brutal agenda is still going on to this day because people refuse to face that one, single fact.

          • Boxer36

            As to Manson and his zombies, they were as paranoid as you with no rational ability or ego-strength to resist his narcissism. You know, like some racist Trump supporters given the chance would kill without hesitation. Remember “Lynching” was not so long ago, and was not constrained by Political Correctness, otherwise known as the Laws.

            Trump and his followers don’t know the difference.

          • AnotherLover

            Lynching was a form of vigilante justice, and White people were lynched too. It only got its start when the criminal justice systems in the newly-formed Black municipalities failed under the weight of racist laws and British-armed, British-backed Black gangs that roamed free from legal prosecution. The “racist South” cartoon is too 2-d for a kindergartener. When I was in kindergarten learning about Abe the hero it all seemed a bit too pat to me even then. I went with it of course, but always in the back of my mind was the question: “What’s the real story?” Nowadays we all know Lincoln didn’t free the slaves because he cared about them or felt a moral imperative, but as part of an economic and social war on the South in a bid to save the Union. Racism has been made such a demon, but we all know that’s horsewash — the newfound philosophy apparently accepted by the social justice warrior/ BLM crowd: the argument that minorities (et al) can’t be racist, proffers that exact point: racism doesn’t matter. It seems to me though that this newfound philosophy is wielded by people without the logical wherewithal to understand their own argument. For, while racism per se is excused and even applauded among the minority et al crowd by a growing and substantial part of our society, and as the substance of the argument against racism is thereby dissolved, these same people that just destroyed the fundamental/moral argument against racism, and have literally and publicly excused and supported racism, still somehow manage to identify racism as their biggest enemy and number one scourge on the face of the planet.

            The PC crowd’s entire approach is one giant logical absurdity fractally sorted amidst many smaller ones structurally composed of the same illogic that describes the whole picture.

            PC has no morality and it is a far cry from some type of “Law.” It’s speech control which is mind control, period. The thought, inspired in the moment, flounders as it struggles to rise through the absolute muck and swamp of PC fiats and is often lost, suffocated or confused before it is ever expressed. THAT is the point of the totalitarian, mind-melding, neo-Cultural Revolution we call PC: to confuse thought with words.

            And as for Manson, the CIA was involved in too many cult activities in the same time and same place using the same techniques Manson did to dismiss out-of-hand the notion that a guy that came out of prison knowing nobody, was literally given a guitar and taught to play it, got tight with the likes of Neil Young and The Beach Boys’ Dennis Wilson, and also ended up with a stunning movie star cast for a cult that he led like a magician, was also helped along by people knowledgeable in such tradecraft: the CIA. It makes too much sense to be easily dismissed. Cheers

            Not quite observing from the sidelines — I’m a generation removed! What you say about the CIA’s involvement may be true. What I say about their LSD experimentation — from the very moment almost of its invention on the face of the planet, mind you — is true. They both may be true — the CIA riding the coattails of the movement and trying to wag the dog, so to speak.

            Maybe their involvement with the women’s movement was seen as simple intelligence-gathering. Maybe the intel about the movement they wanted cost less via the direct-funding trick than any other method of surveillance. Who knows, I guess. But the music scene was and is replete with horrible evil — just take a gander at the body count during the hippie era the late, great Dave McGowan compiled in “Weird Scenes in the Canyon.”

            Thanks for the reply. I appreciate the perspective. All the best.

          • BeeTheChange

            You’re most welcome. It’s quite true that the music industry is filled with evil. Since music is created in the heart, and vibrates with the heart when played and heard by others, one might conclude music reflects the hearts of the people who create it and partake of it, so it’s a mirror reflection of the times and milieu. I am a musician myself and I have a friend who plays in a band in Europe. He reports that the only time they can get a crowd on their feet dancing is by playing “the old stuff” (he’s in his 20’s) meaning rock-n-roll from the hippie era. We talk about this often and ponder the meaning. Cheers.

          • AnotherLover

            Yeah it might be a little weirder than that re the music scene. I’ve already mentioned Dave McGowan, and maybe I even linked to this site, but I’m really liking what I’ve seen here so far because a summation is just the treatment the book needs. This appears to be an easy and accessible overview of “Weird Scenes,” so here it is:
            http://www.mygen.com/Laurel_Canyon-David_McGowan_report.htm

            The book itself is great and I remember reading the first couple chapters in its original form of an ebook serial, and just wandering around my neighborhood afterward, walking and just stunned. People don’t make much of Jim Morrison’s father, Admiral George Morrison, being such a prominent military man. There aren’t that many Admirals in the Navy. His fleet performed the Gulf of Tonkin routine. That’s interesting to me.

            People also don’t talk about how odd it is that Frank Zappa, who loathed the hippies, also starred as their ringleader at the, um, spacious “Log Cabin” in Laurel Canyon, or his father’s career at the Edgewood Arsenal during peak MK Ultra years. So, anyway, just thought I’d say it’s worth checking out. Peace

          • BeeTheChange

            Thanks, AL. I was aware of some these connections from reading Miles Mathis, who has done hundreds of in-depth essays on topics like (and including) Jim Morrison’s father, although I will say a lot of people back then rebelled against their parents in a very big way, I had several friends with military fathers who did this. The whole idea was to ditch the establishment completely, like how we feel today about exiting the matrix. Morrison has other issues of course, and they made a movie about him so that right there is a clue.

            Mathis has done geneologies on hundreds of people, not just musicians, and they are quite detailed and astounding. While I’m checking out the Laurel Canyon info, here’s a link to him. You have to scroll down through tons of articles to reach the bottom, but since this topic is of interest to you, it’s worth a look to see what you might like to read:

            http://mileswmathis.com/updates.html

          • BeeTheChange

            Just did a fast scan through the Laurel Canyon material. That was depressing. Lots of mysterious deaths and unsolved murders, waaaay too many connections, so many it almost seems contrived. I see why you are sold on how it went down, but it’s only part of the picture.

            To give you a bit of context before you swallow the whole thing in one gulp… all of this is probably true, but it does not describe the real hippie movement that took place outside the rarified LC/MIC incestuous clusterfook. I was on the other side of the country, in Georgia, riding in the slipstream of The Allman Brothers, and later Johnny Winter and his band, meaning I knew them on a superficial level personally but I was also very focused on college- you had to find balance or you went off the rails. That’s why so many of them went off the rails. But in that particular hippie scene, people were living out in the country, part of the “back to the land movement” growing their own, part of a huge social experiment in alternative lifestyles. I still know some of these people, the “real” hippies who tuned in, dropped out, and never went back to the matrix, still living in rural areas today, teaching sustainable farming to young people and living off the land. I live in one of these communities now. I’m still a hippie and I make no apologies to anyone because I love peace and freedom.

            Point being, people who write about hippies are not hippies themselves, they have no clear idea of what the word means because there is no precedent to compare it to, and you just had to be there. It’s like people writing about cannabis who have never tried it. Music was a big part of the life, but the life we were creating was bigger than the music. It’s hard to accept that all the music we adored was fake, created by assholes who enjoyed killing each other. I remember Frank Zappa claimed to hate hippies, so that makes him a sellout and a jerk who can play the guitar. But that is not how it really was outside of the elite milieu in which these people lived and died, it was much cooler than that. Sure there were idiots and fakes galore… that never changes, but there were good people, and lots of them, who tried to effect change for the better and loved music.

            Thanks for the link… I could have lived without it though! LOL.

          • AnotherLover

            Ha ha. Nice. Yeah the only real hippies I know are incredibly hard-working people that have managed to keep the matrix off their necks through that hard work — although of course that’s kind of a catch-22… Anyway the hippie movement was momentous and it still is, which is the crazy part. That’s the thing about an idea whose time has come. And that’s how I live my life, too — not by planning and conniving, trying to eg write comments people are gonna like and agree with — the thread has to be followed and the thread only exists in the moment and the word is not formed until it is ready to be written. I feel that those things that take us away from our intuition and away from the moment are all part of the things that keep us trapped. That’s why I’m always striking towards the truth — the lies are so thick and pervasive that breaking even one of them is enough to break through the wall of illusion. And just knowing the truth is only the first step because we have a lot of work to do in making this world nice, and the truth isn’t some feel-good fairytale — the matrix shields us from some pretty unpleasant aspects of life, and we have to face some pretty difficult dillemas. But if one group is allowed to rule and fool all the other people, the people are gonna be left picking up the pieces and making ends meet. That’s where we are right now. So keep on beein’, Bee — great chattin’ with you.

          • BeeTheChange

            Very astute compilation of the dilemmas we face. I smiled at your Catch-22 reference, I actually met Joseph Heller once, standing in line at an airport. Life is a Catch-22 experience from beginning to end, isn’t it? At the ripe old age of 64, I think the whole key is to keep dancing to the music and hold peace in your heart no matter what the bastards throw at you. If you cannot laugh in the face of your enemy, you have already lost the war.

          • AnotherLover

            Hard work is absolutely an ideal, but it’s a question I’ve faced since I was a kid thinking about this, and it’s yet to be satisfactorily resolved: how do you escape the wheel of commerce and its inherent web of debt and fakery? The thing is, you can work “for yourself,” but, come on, now — what’s that property you “own?” Who are those people that fill those container ships overseas you’re competing against? Why are you paying so much still for your “property,” which itself even after 30 years’ prosecution of successful and on-time mortgage payments still represents eternal debt to the government? And all that money stuck under the bed? It’s worth half what it is now in 30 years’ time. Eternal and steady currency devaluation is one of the first lessons I learned — as a child! I’m old enough to have watched a lot of 20’s-inspired cartoons and the like. I heard echoes of old truisms: the lessons on “the value of a dollar.” Well, we’ve got some lessons on that “value” yet — but they aren’t the ones that inspire hard work and savings like they were back then! They are lessons in outright theft. They are lessons in debt slavery. And they are lessons the PC snowflake crowd — excuse the sneer, the name’s just so, so fitting at this point — have never even begun to ponder as they sail along saving the world with righttalk and rightthink, communicating with each other through their supremely inoffensive 2-d platitudes which are all that’s left available to the human social animal when offense has become taboo, platitudes they have spent their formative years working up and just hoping for a chance to actually say to one of the colored or disadvantaged and put-upon souls. Those poor disadvantaged minorities, when there’s not a soul among us that can escape the wheel. That’s why, imho, merits of their arguments aside, many people feel a visceral distate for the PC movement.

            Funny story: I always considered myself a writer, which I’ve defined thusly: a writer perceives and tells the human story. Right? Oh, and I was also completely full of myself when it came to the written word, which is common among writers, so I figured I also had that going for me. So one day I’m walking along and had been pondering for a couple days just how important it was for the mind to express its thoughts in the moment, irrespective of their perceived consequence, even, if the truth is ever to be got at. Only the moment provides the opportunity for intuition to combine with action (feminine and masculine), and for the best to thus arise from the human animal. Now I never considered that a recipe for a nuanced form of “polite” conversation, but a ruthless and lode-bearing assault on the summit of truth. That was my thought-for-the-moment that I had been with for a couple days and along I walk past my friends’ cabin (any hippy would love my high school — wood stoves, log cabins, and lots of actual work), and everyone’s talking about this new book. It was a gag book about PC — the PC Bible, or something like that, and I remember I had to ask my friend: “what’s PC?” So when I found out what it was, it immediately struck me as the enemy of the expression of truth. Just thought I’d share that. Cheers 🙂

          • BeeTheChange

            Hahaha… 2-D platitudes… I love it. As if being “politically correct” is something to strive for. Good story, you definitely have the writing calling. I share your derision for PC and simply refuse to participate. It’s really simple neuro-linguistic programming, honed on my generation and being perfected now to keep people focused on their little machines and not on expressing themselves. You have a choice not to participate and just speak your mind, given you will lose some friends you didn’t need in the first place.

            Unless you have children or others for whom you are responsible. you also have the choice not to participate in the money quagmire. Buying a home, working to pay for it, all that… you could do what I did when I finished college… go down to the Caribbean, get a bartender job and enjoy life for awhile. That is definitely NOT what my parents or anyone else expected me to do, which is exactly why I went. The less you do what’s expected, the less anyone expects. The money trap is real, don’t give it your energy.

      Tell us why you individually protested? what actual policy of Trumps do you disagree with?

      • TeslaFan

        It’s the whole package, not just one policy. He’s evil in every way and will destroy America which will also hurt the entire world. And everyone knows it. Why do you think people in 30+ countries marched against Trump on Saturday?

        • billdeserthills

          I think they marched because George Soros organized and paid for them to
          do so, just like George paid to create and organize BLM

          • jerry kustich

            Let’s say that was even possible…so what! They marched because they were motivated to march. There is not enough money in the world to pay people to ride in a stinking bus for eight hours, walk the streets in 45 degree temps all day and then drive another eight hours unless they were highly motivated. Face reality…you are pissed because these folks were marching for truth and decency.

          • billdeserthills

            I don’t know why you think I’m mad at mixed-up, easily led people? I am mad at George Soros, for interfering
            in Our affairs, if a bunch of dumb people need a little hobby, I think a march is a great idea

          • jerry kustich

            I thought the “mixed-up, easily led people” were Trump followers. Do you really think over a million people would just throw away a Saturday on a winter day for a hobby? Do you have any idea how difficult it is to get that many people to do anything together? But on the other hand, why in the world would it bother you? It troubles you that a billionaire dares to influence “our affairs” yet Trump’s cabinet is full of billionaires with the intention of influencing our affairs. I don’t get it.

          • billdeserthills

            So tell me how many Trump followers you’ve seen in the past 8 years marching? Could that be on account of Trump followers enjoyed obama? The answer is No, we are just more lawful and Trump followers aren’t a bunch of whiny little babies who protest everytime they need a diaper change, the way your folks do

          • jerry kustich

            What! Protesting is the exercise of our First Amendment Rights. Unlawful? You have to be kidding. It is just as lawful as owning a gun is as an exercise of our Second Amendment rights. Heck…all I heard for years was the whines of the anti-Obama people…mostly related to the color of his skin. They could have protested, but maybe they were just too lazy, or just too embarrassed to exhibit their bigotry.

          • billdeserthills

            Protesting is legal, destroying vehicles and commercial property is not & unfortunately everytime your so-called ‘protesters’ get together private property winds up being destroyed. which does make these protests illegal

          • jerry kustich

            Fox59 reported and noted that it was a very isolated incident that should not have happened. My point is that Saturday there were a million protesters and no incident. To point out a negative incident at a protest and declare that protests are unlawful is the same as blaming everyone who owns a gun for a mass killing.

          • billdeserthills

          • jerry kustich

            Please explain why I am a liar. I have acknowledged that damage done during protests is illegal, and many responsible are held accountable. But I will go back to my point above, just because many people each day are killed with guns, it doesn’t make all people who own guns guilty, does it? I detect in your comments that you believe protests ought to be illegal; yet protests have been the cornerstone of our society and the firewall that prevents a total fascist takeover. That was always the intent of the first amendment. Actually, if I didn’t give a shit, I wouldn’t have given you a thoughtful reply.

          • jerry kustich

            Again, Billy…you have to check your facts. The Muslim car was on inauguration day…it was wrong. The perpetrators were arrested(one hundred in all) and they will pay one way or the other. All the news stations (even the right-slanted ones) reported most inauguration day protests were peaceful. The beauty of protests are that there are usually many witnesses to any illegality. It you are suggesting that because a protest may become violent so all protests should be banned, then the same logic would apply to banning all guns because they may be used for bad deeds. Regarding the Saturday protests, I can find no evidence of violence on that day. Women tend to be more peaceful. On a personal level, why should anybody protesting anything even bother you wherever you live?

          • billdeserthills

            I guess all the damage reported is just a lie too

          That’s why I asked. I think it’s important to understand what an individuals concerns are. I will say this. There were a lot of right wingers who thought the same thing about Obama. They were genuinely concerened – those fears were mostly unfounded. He didn’t end the world. and Trump won’t either. I’m no fan of Trump, by any means and I wasn’t a fan of Obama either or Bush before him. I don’t panic whenever a new “ruler” is elected. I just live my life like I did the day before and I try to treat every person I meet with the same respect I would expect of them.

      Women have been marching for their rights for a very long time, Anna, there is nothing to get used to. I was heavily involved in the last big push for women’s rights in the 60’s and 70’s. I did not know at the time the entire movement was being funded by those who wished to break up the family unit as well as remove the cultural and discriminatory obstacles that kept women in the home and out of the workplace. Much good came from those activist demonstrations to be sure: equal pay for equal work, Title 9, etc., but it was in fact a controlled movement by the powers that be, working on the same agenda they are pushing now: division of the family and friction between the genders.

      Sorry, but the truth is that we are being manipulated, then and now. We can
      still march and demonstrate for causes, but we are being duped if we
      don’t understand exactly who is pulling the strings and why.

      • Anna Van Z

        I don’t know if you really believe your statements, but you do NOT speak for millions of us who are active, aware, and paying attention. You are only able to speak for yourself, and you are not qualified to speak for us. Clearly you were not part of this, no matter how much you try and sound like one of the gang.

        I think you sound like a sad, defeated person who vacillates between different groups who yank your chain. I feel sorry for you.

        • BeeTheChange

          I have no idea how you read “sad and defeated” in my statements because that is far from the truth. See that Bee The Change thing? That’s what I do. I don’t make signs and protest anymore, I just do it. That’s how you effect change.. but regardless, it’s great to hear that you are qualified to speak for all 3 million “active and aware” women who marched because I have no idea what the purpose and intent of the march was and I’d really like to know… because if I couldn’t see the purpose or reason, nor could any of my female friends see it, who could?

      • Sandra J Scoggin

        You’re right.I wish it wasn’t so, but it has been and looks like it will continue to be so

        • BeeTheChange

          Yes, for some. The rest have moved past being “anti” something and “protesting against” into actually doing something positive to effect change in their personal sphere of influence. This is a decentralized movement that cannot be co-opted by its very nature. As Gandhi advised, be the change, show the way by example, and that’s all one has to do. It’s very sad because 3 million women could have actually been a voice had they chosen a positive message and stood united behind it. That was obviously not the agenda.

      • Louise

        An example of corporate manipulation is the “Fearless Girl” statue staring down the Wall Street Bull. What a joke!

        • BeeTheChange

          Excellent examples, Louise, and there are millions more where they came from. It’s vital that we recognize these ploys and share them with younger women who don’t have the benefit of years of experience and 20/20 hindsight. Thanks.

          • Louise

            I have suspected since I was in college that there was propaganda from some unknown source encouraging women to seek corporate jobs instead of traditional jobs like teaching. The hidden messages were everywhere and the students would repeat what they had heard, especially that a high paying job in business was more satisfying that doing something meaningful that you enjoyed.

      Thank you Anna for setting the record straight. This site is alt right propaganda. They are still hate mongering and ragging on Clinton. I’ll bet it is Russian backed like Trump

    • Boxer36

      Indeed. All other paranoid assertions aside, were Soros’ actions (If true) illegal. You are free to support whomever you wish. Is he restricted from doing the same? Trump paid people to be present at his announcement. Did he violate a law? You seem desperate for material you assume will hurt a democratic Constitutional right to protest the government’s actions.

      • Boxer36

        Sorry Anna Van Z. I support you post and meant for mine to challenge comments opposed to the content of ours. I marched in Orlando. Sadly, no one paid me as much as a penny.

      I am afraid you did not do your research and you are falling into the lambs led to slaughter group. You need to educate yourself, not listen to someone’s BS. You are one of the reason’s we as a country have so many problems. I am a woman and you shame women with your BS and rhetoric. You sound like a Soro’s groupie. Go search and find out who is funding the groups who are doing the marching. If you had any brains you would know enough to follow the money.
      I would rather have a man who speaks his mind than a murdering pedophyle in the WH. Words from 20 years ago or ten or even 5 mean nothing. Actions are where you ought to look. And look at the BIG picture, not some petty little bs that, o darn, hurt silly girls feelings. God, GROW UP. Look at the mess our country is in. We need a strong person to clean this shit up. WAKE UP….DUH

    Big surprise. This is what they do with the money after they have far more than what they need to satisfy their greed, they play power games with us. The bad part is that Soros is not the worst out there.

    • Marcia Everett

      Soros may be a bad guy. but what do you expect? Isn’t money the ROOT of all evil?

      • john robel

        NO, this is a common MISQUOTE. The quotation is from Timothy 6;10 —For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. LOVE OF MONEY not money itself.

        • Steve Rusk

          Money leads to love of money, couldn’t have one without the other, it’s a closed circle.

          • cand_alt

            It is not a closed circle, because you kan have money without the love of money. Your argument is empty.

      • Steve Rusk

        The problem is the Neoliberal schemes of the last 40 years have pushed financial concentration to it’s present historical extreme, when the most aggressive elements of our society are allowed to amass this much power this is how they use it, to manipulate and cheat the rest of us.

      • TeslaFan

        your anger and fear are eating you up inside.

  • TeslaFan

    I’m surprised to find a right wing load of crap like this on this site. People who went to the march were not flocks of sheep. WE made it what it is and soros had nothing to do with it. Millions of people turned out with just as many signs/messages expressing how we feel. It was clearly not coordinated by any one group or person. Most of us have never heard of Soros and were not influenced by him to participate in this show of power and unity. Right wingers can’t stand that a rich man is not on their side. boo effing hoo

    • john robel

      Here we go again. You liberals don’t really like ‘FREE THOUGHT” or “FREE SPEACH” and you just PROVED IT. Free thought to your ilk is really FREE TO THINK AS WE DO. If you WERE as informed as you THINK YOU ARE, you would know why soros is a POS. Yeah, it’s no surprise, “most of us have never heard of soros”. You “made it what it is” alright. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BUT STUPIDITY.

        Seriously, you and your ilk have made me so happy – seeing you all freak out about the MILLIONS of people WORLDWIDE, who rose up to say HELL NO to Herr trump is hilarious!! It shows how much you all hate democracy and civil liberties, and how terrified you really are by people who think for themselves. We don’t fit in your little conceptual boxes and it drives you (even more) crazy. LOLLOLOLOLOL!!!!

          Doyou not see that ypour argument are just as much “box parroted from wingnut talkingpoints” ad you say John Robels are?
          All the way in this tread you are just repeating your self, you are right and he is wrong, but you do absolutely nothing to build your argument with substance.
          Please come up with some substance, meat on the bone, and I would be the first to support, but when you call the opponent tinnfoil hat user and you yourself have nothing on the bone it is just patethic.

    “the events you’re seeing transpire nationwide are largely being coordinated, in part, by a billionaire political elite class that is looking to strategically forward a political agenda…”

    The political agenda seems to be freedom, empowerment, inclusion, activism, equality. What the hell is wrong with that?? It’s nice that a billionaire has the interests of the average American in mind for a change!

    • Tom F

      Because the “political agenda” they want is MORE concentration of power (meaning LESS freedom) in order for them to have MORE power over the people and the economy, so that they can increase THEIR wealth at our expense. Do you really think that octogenarian Nazi collaborator has YOUR interest at heart? If so, you haven’t yet learned who he really is.

      • Bob

        I don’t know much about him but I sure aint afraid of a bunch of women marching around asserting their rights. I doubt they were touting a new world order. Hahaha.

        • Tom F

          Perhaps, perhaps not – but Soros certainly is – and he has undermined other governments in the process. I suggest you spend a little effort to learn about that “billionaire political elite class,” and their goals, because they intend for the USA to be a third-world country – for their profit. That’s not a laughing matter.

    • john robel

      Marcia, Trust the voices in your head. You have been successfully programed. Now go KILL. SOROS that is. WHAT “BIGOTRY” do you object to? You mean groups like the NAACP, BLACK lives matter and the Southern Poverty Law center? How about the United NEGRO college fund, or BET? ALL of the aforementioned are RACIST BY INTENT and NATURE. You are the type that would scream RACISM if I were to launch WET or the United CAUCASION College Fund. How about WHITE lives matter?

        Are you completely ignorant, or are just pretending ignorance for some purpose? You do understand that MLK was a LIBERAL, right? And that Nathan Forrest was a CONSERVATIVE, right? You do understand that it was the CONSERVATIVE southern racist democrats (aka ‘dixiecrats’) who opposed the CRA of 1964, while the LIBERAL Yankee Republicans (as well as the liberal yankee democrats) pushed it through, right? You do understand that it was the LIBERAL Republicans who were opposed to prohibition, while the CONSERVATIVE Democrats were the ‘drys’, right? Or do you really have no clue what the F you’re talking about? You DO know that racist assholes like Jessie Helms and Strom Thurmon USED to be Democrats, and then they became Republicans. When did they do that, and why? Do you even know?

        No, sorry, you’re full of pooh – the NAACP and BLM are not ‘racist’. Maybe you should actually try to LEARN something before you spout nonsense.

    • permalink
  • frankblank

    The article is mostly lies, buttressed by logic like this: Soros supports planned parenthood, Planned Parenthood helped organize the march, Soros supported the march. Like Trump’s campaign and his count of the inaugural audience, all things associated woth the Orange Chump are lies. To Right-Wing Fools: as soon as you see Soros’s name attached to an article you should recognize instantly that it’s a dishonest piece of propaganda. The right has been using him since the 90’s because the right has an extensive list of billionaires, starting with the Kocks, who fund and determine everything they do. (Want to argue? First research ALEC. Until then, stfu.) Soros grew up under Nazi occupation. Having once experienced fascism, he is trying to prevent it here. And nothing disturbs the right-wing zealots more than a determined anti-fascist.

    One of the big conclusions of the article was that the march was not a Women’s March, it was an Anti-Trump Women’s March. Duh-uuhh. People who believe right-wing crap ought to be ashamed of themselves – and get a few more years of education, so they can recognize lies after being told a thousand of them. .

  • jerry kustich

    The democratic party couldn’t get organized throughout the entire election cycle, and now we are supposed to believe that George Soros was to have organized these marches in a matter of weeks. And then,who cares. Every candidate in the campaign had its backers as well. This seems to be another gaslight technique to obscure the fact that these were real people with real concerns about our democracy. One thing for sure, at least the millions that marched weren’t Russian.

  • Netizen_James

    sofa king what?
    As if the Koch Brothers haven’t funded the TeaParty bs.

    What is WRONG with you people? Stick to stories about corrupt cops.
    As if the Koch brothers aren’t also part of the “billionaire political elite class that is looking to strategically forward a political agenda”

    Where’s your story about Betty DeVos and her donations to the Trump campaign that were repaid by her appointment? No ‘cronyism’ there, eh?

  • skyp0ckets

    I guess you could say that i also funded the march since I’ve donated to many women’s organizations over my lifetime.

  • Susan M.

    Discus: Why do you demonize George Soros in your headline by saying “Globalist” Soros is “exposed” funding groups involved with the Women’s March?? What is it that you have against Soros? He’s a progressive. You sound like the mainstream media. And it’s hardly an “exposure”: everybody’s known for years that he funds Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Human Rights Watch, and plenty of other progressive NGO’s. I thought you were a progressive publication, but I’m beginning to wonder…Where does YOUR funding come from?

  • The neoliberals who are still in shock over their loss of the wheels of power are all dupes of Soros and his ilk.They protest Trumps controlling manner while themselves supporting a war mongering elitist like George Soros.Soros spent a billion dollars on Killary Milton’s campaign.He still has 37 billion more to spend on manipulating American elections.Unlike Vladymir Putin who simply exposed the truth about Killary.If we are to believe all America watches RT and believes, unwittingly,in everything they say.

  • Serpentina

    I understand the inherent problem with large donors having a say whether it through think tanks or contributions to marches. We can see this on the right, with the Tea Party movement- it may have started with an organic idea, but before long there was lots of industry and personal agenda big donors to prop up political candidates and air commercials. I think we all know that when money became legal free speech and furthermore when Citizens United rolled out, this was going to be the way-now I suppose it depends on where you are on the political spectrum how you feel about various issues, but one issue I have with this is for example-the women’s marches. There were marches in all kinds of cities big and small,even little tiny rural towns had gatherings. All that is necessary to spread the word on that is a social network platform and people who feel strongly on various topics. Today, there was a pro life march which is undoubtedly funded by right wing and religious groups- well, when women like myself got word of these ( and I can tell you there are always pro life demonstrations outside statehouses and Planned Parenthood) -so while there was a centralized website that detailed where all the anti choice protests would be,it was up to women themselves in various actual self run groups to mobilize to counter demonstrate. Again, this is nothing new. What to me is more troublesome is when think tanks like the Heritage Foundation or similar, make lists of judges for Trump pick from to fulfill a corporate or religious platform.that is serious- it affects our laws for years and years, and uses money to literally upend democracy. Groups who fund the redistricting of congressional districts to make certain Republicans win-there is nothing organic about those lines. In my own state, the GOP is attempting to eliminate districts in our large democratic county, because there are less than 600 registered voters.Conveniently they would be absorbed by GOP district lines and the democrats, mostly in African American cities, would lack representation. Who wrote this bill? Right wing think tanks again, and they put ads all over to urge people to call their reps to vote for it under the guise of saving tax dollars. So I guess my concern is more with the corporations and think tanks making legislation and forgetting to include the fine print. I don’t like George Soros,but if he pays for a venue or materials for women to feel comfortable coming out in droves at least they are getting a choice- if he gives money to groups who are trying to get the word out on the benefits to marijuana decriminalzation so what- now if he was paying legislators off that would be another thing entirely, and while I know he supports legalization groups, clearly he isn’t funding the candidates or we would see more support for federal law changes or at least more states change. Also, it is important to understand that the black bloc and Antifa are groups that have existed for 20 years and are by and large legitimate factions of various anarcho factions. They are not paid, anymore than deep green environmentalists are paid. The greater likelihood and I know this exists, is people being paid to infiltrate and smear the groups with strictly prohibited rogue activity. That is how many leftist movements were strategically broken in the 60s and 70s, right wing groups like the John Birch Society
    Provided false info and infiltrated ”
    Traps” and lies they furnished the FBI who started cointelpro, then Gov Reagan and President Nixon colluded on agendas – like the War on Drugs, which told the public flagrant lies and targeted minority leftist groups, antiwar activists, and students in particular universities. Anytime an agenda is threatened and people are rallied en masse, the establishment panics and stops it. I think it is good when people are awakened to what decisions are being made and by who when it comes to their lives, and I don’t condone lying or infiltrating any grassroots movements- but unless it’s politicians with power to make or pass judgement on laws, it really doesn’t matter- people can make up their own minds on issues. Look at Trumps cabinet picks-almost all of them are big GOP donors, and each one is diametrically opposed to the agency it is secretary of- that is the problem. The fact the GOP decided they were not going to give a hearing to Merrik Garland was apparently perfectly ok, yet if the Democrats who have clear reasons to say no to this pick, he is not a reasonable candidate and the GOP can’t stand not having a conservative leaning Justice, yet there are Gorusch commercials on tv? Whose paying for that? They have a right to filibuster but for some stupid reason the GOP can just nuclear option and give themselves the candidate? Considering we are a 50/50 split country at least, probably more 60/40 if everyone voted, that is just not democratic-
    Corporations and the religious right do not get to call the shots alone. Anyone who can rule what I can and cannot do with my body is taking away my personal sovereign rights, and with social freedoms under fire by one group, it seems only fair to have some equal representation- when we take all big money, corporate personhood and money as free speech out of politics,then we can approach this differently. The white male straight Christian men do not get to speak for me, if it means my rights are
    Infringed upon.
