Considering the significant numbers of people, and the multiple locations involved, we’d be delusional to believe that yesterday’s massive women’s march was a grassroots effort (as many in the mainstream media portrayed it). On the contrary, it was funded by upwards of 500 different groups, all of which fall under the general umbrella of progressive leftism.
I don’t know what dollar amounts were required to qualify as a “Premier Partner” of the event but there were two of them – “Premiers” that is: Planned Parenthood (which explains why pro-life participants weren’t welcome – although the Satanists showed up in Seattle) and the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council). Here’s a sampling of the rest:
• Southern Poverty Law Center
• American Atheists
• Occupy Wall Street
• EMILY’s List
• Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)
• Muslim Community Network
• Communist Party USA
When the Tea Party sprang up in early 2009, it was a grassroots movement of Americans fed up with getting the cold shoulder from the Washington ruling class; with being over-taxed with little or nothing to say about where the money went. It wasn’t until months later that various groups began forming to provide organization and direction (groups, incidentally, which were promptly attacked by Obama’s partisan IRS). The Women’s March on Washington, despite being touted as a “huge, spontaneous groundswell,” (Vox) was astroturfed from beginning to end.
In a refreshingly honest account in the New York Times, Asra O. Nomani exposes the funding behind the spontaneity. As she looked over the list of March “partners” she recognized an obvious link behind several dozen of the groups: backing from that maestro of mayhem, global elitist George Soros and his Open Society Foundations (whose main goal is to disrupt, divide and conquer the civil society) ~
Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including (both of the “Premier 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.
Of course the majority of the Women’s March participants seemed unaware or unconcerned about the event’s shady underpinnings. Here’s an illustrative video from Conservative Review ~
[VIEWER ADVISORY- there was no lack of vulgarity at this progressive event]
Yesterday’s Soros-funded collection of malcontents was basically united in one mission – opposition to America’s 45th president. As Nomani wrote ~
… I know — and most of America knows — (what) the organizers of the march haven’t put into their manifesto: the march really isn’t a “women’s march.” It’s a march for women who are anti-Trump […]
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.
So to all my dear, who-are-we-to-judge, sincere-but-woefully-misguided friends and family – before you naively embrace the next brave new, righteous protest event – PLEASE take the time to discover who’s behind all the social justice, feel-good propaganda they’re peddling.
I have serious reservations about Donald Trump’s ability to make America great again. But I know for certain that George Soros would make it infinitely worse.
Soros and Other Far Leftists Instigate Revolution Against Trump ~ Soros believes his vision of an “open society” trumps self-government ~
George Soros does not believe in the democratic process. He believes in imposing his definition of an “open” society, which he sees as ultimately a borderless world run by so-called enlightened progressives. He has contempt for ordinary people engaging in the process of self-government, particularly whenever the result is not to his liking. Four years ago, Soros predicted that riots would break out in the streets. Now that the Left’s preferred candidate did not win the 2016 presidential election, Soros and his other left wing allies may be on their way to make his prophecy come true.
