With Hillary lagging in the Polls behind Sanders, spending most of her media time defending herself against a boatload of accusations, where is Soros? Given he is her preeminent backer, what happens if she continues her downward spiral? Will Soros shift his weight?
Actually, he hasn’t given up – yet. In fact, the nouveau organization, Black Lives Matter, is working in front of the camera that is operated by Soros behind the scenes. Taking Sanders off stage at events, the organization is literally stealing the mike and the stage to support their own agenda. Stealing, because they didn’t pay for the event. And while they state on their website that they are not politically motivated… they are funded by George and Alexander Soros, Beyonce and Jay Z – very political headaches.
Given that they are NOT political, it is interesting that they have garnered the support of the White House when they only began as a slogan just 2 years ago. Quite a hefty rise to fame in such a short period of time – for a non-political organization…
What have they accomplished? Well, they like to send incendiaries to spike protests across the nation and help to create chaos and anger wherever they descend. At a recent takeover of a conference in Phoenix in July, the head of Black Lives Matter shouted, “Burn everything down”!
Personally, I don’t see how this attitude will make people think you aren’t anything but radical, tyrannical, terrorizing and brutal. Not exactly the impression that espouses your agenda… just sayin’ –
Who else is funding the Black Lives organization? A company called Resource Generation who state as their goal the coming together of young activists and young money for the purpose of making social change. But if they are not political, why do they continually target political events? Bernie Sanders, O’Malley and Jeb Bush were the most recent. Hillary was left unscathed as she met briefly with a few members ‘after’ her own rally had concluded. An obvious setup.
Their tactics are disruption, not exactly filled with solutions or ideas or much of anything with substance. But the tactics are similar to the chaos that Soros continues to infuse as a means of dismembering a country. And interestingly, these tactics are supported by the Soros blog, Think Progress.
What do they want?
They want police reform – but they also seem to want a public affirmation of the police brutality toward blacks and a formal apology that they were targeted.
This would, of course, completely alienate the police force, sheriffs offices, and all other agencies tasked with defending US citizens. Are their rogue police? Definitely. So what would police reform look like? Because stepping back, as they did in Baltimore, did not keep the homicide rate among black on black populations down, in fact it rose unprecedentedly.
The demands listed on their website state: 1) the arrest of Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown, 2) redress of systemic pattern of racial discrimination… 3) demilitarization of law enforcement 4) the release of the names of ALL officers involved in shootings of blacks for the past five years and 5) a decrease in law enforcement spending with the funds redirected to the Federal departments of employment, housing and education.
- won’t happen
- wording on website is too convoluted to say anything
- possible – many organizations working tirelessly on this – without burning down everything
- not possible – vengeance, retribution, and putting lives at risk
- well we saw what happened in Baltimore – an escalation of black on black murders…
If you want to use the civil rights movement of Martin Luther King Jr. as an example of what Black Lives Matter is attempting to do today there are some rather definitive differences:
- he was highly educated – a PhD
- civil rights movement was about ‘non-violent protest’
- King reflected, “Since being in India, I am more convinced than ever before that the method of nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for justice and human dignity”
- An ardent follower of Ghandi, King stated that, “He struggled only with the weapons of truth, soul force, non-injury and courage.”
Vengeance begets vengeance begets a cycle that has no gold ring, no end. While there is a definite problem with crime in the US, (murder rate 15k to 16k per year) be careful what you ask for, because what a non-police city looks like is two cents away from Martial Law.

“he was highly educated – a PhD”
Still didn’t protect him from an assassin’s bullet.
“civil rights movement was about ‘non-violent protest’”
And MLK realized that non-violent protest is a luxury that could not be asked of everyone.
“King reflected, “Since being in India, I am more convinced than ever before that the method of nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for justice and human dignity””
For himself and his associates.
“An ardent follower of Ghandi, King stated that, “He struggled only with the weapons of truth, soul force, non-injury and courage.””
Which does not mention the actions of Indian revolutionary nationalists such as Subhas Chandra Bose, who were the other arm of the independence movement.
“well we saw what happened in Baltimore – an escalation of black on black murders…”
Also known as “crimes of proximity within ethnically-concentrated areas”, which occur in white-on-white crimes.
Hi Harry –
Education never ‘protects’ us from murder, whatever the form, whoever the assassin. But it does provide us with the wisdom to choose what is right. Destroying other people’s property has no place in civil rights – ever. Non-violence may be a luxury, but wouldn’t you rather it was the norm? How best to make that real, make that truth than to begin with you and I? And what happened to those revolutionaries? While Netaji wanted rightful independence from British Rule, his methodology of collaborating with Nazi Germany – and taking refuge in Japan during WWII – did not exactly promote his cause – he was no friend of Ghandi… I do take exception to your comparison regarding Baltimore – while white-on-white crimes are an issue worthy of discussion and commentary, that was not the point. Baltimore is nearly in ruins economically – physically and spiritually. That is a sad truth. Blame is a toxic virus. If we could eradicate blame – we might have a chance ~
