Did George Soros Fund The Latest Wave Of Riots—As Well As the U.S. Taxpayers?

As the nation remains gripped by tension and turmoil in the wake of protests over the police death of George Floyd that devolved into violent riots, many eyes are on globalist billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundation.

If you look to sources such as the Anti-Defamation League, it’s nothing more than an anti-semitic rumor that the Holocaust survivor is a major bankroller behind violent protests in America—though they appear to offer no evidence to prove the claim wrong.

According to PJ Media, however, OSF’s “big, dark money” helped fund Black Lives Matter in 2015, so for the philanthropist’s foundation to be behind the most recent chaos should come as no surprise.

What should shock us, however, are the massive amounts of taxpayer dollars in the form of government grants given to radical protest groups.

In a report earlier this week, Daniel Bice of the Milwaukie Journal-Sentinel reports that a group called Freedom, Inc. has received millions in taxpayer dollars from the Wisconsin Department of Justice:

The Madison-based nonprofit has advocated for the release of all African Americans from jail and the defunding of police departments. As for the current protests, the group’s leaders say “all actions against racist state violence are justified.”

“Stop murdering black people, and your glass will be safe,” Monica Adams, co-executive director for Freedom Inc., said while leading the third day of police protests in the state’s capital on Monday.

“Thank all the youth freedom fighters who were in the streets fighting (Sunday) night and Saturday night,” said Mahnker Dahnweih, community power-building coordinator for Freedom Inc. “Every action is a contribution to liberation.”

So where does a group like this get the money it needs to promote its agenda?

A lot of it comes from you.

Records show that the state has awarded contracts and grants worth $3.6 million to Freedom Inc., which advocates for minority and LGBTQ communities, over the past five years.

That includes $876,674 in federal grants awarded by the state Department of Justice since January 2019, when Attorney General Josh Kaul took office. The state Department of Children and Families has paid out $732,403 to Freedom Inc. under Gov. Tony Eversover the past 1½ years.

Bice quotes State Sen. Steve Nass, (R-Whitewater), who called on the governor and attorney general, both Democrats, to investigate funds being bestowed upon a group involved in rioting and looting.

“The taxpayers of Wisconsin should not be funding any group that supports rioting, looting and actions to terrorize citizens with street violence,” Nass said. “Governor Evers and Attorney General Kaul have the duty to determine that the grant funds they issued to this extremist group are not being used in any way to subsidize the street violence of the last several days.”

Bice also points to John “Sly” Sylvester, a liberal talk show host who railed against Adams and Freedom, Inc. for blocking John Nolen Drive in Madison for eight hours on Monday.

“M. Adams, who wears an ‘I hate pigs’ tee-shirt, is calling for total elimination of our police force,” Sylvester wrote in a Facebook post. “She also said your windows will be safe when we get our way. I am a fighter for all workers, that includes police officers.”

PJ Media took a look into Freedom, Inc.’s finances, revealing what Jeff Reynolds calls a “direct link” to OSF.

One organization who has served as a benefactor to Freedom, Inc. is Borealis Philanthropy.

Back in January, Borealis Philanthropy announced the creation of the Black Led Movement Fund (BLMF), saying:

Since launching in 2016, the BLMF has invested approximately $3 million in general operating support for organizations participating in the M4BL, leadership and organizational capacity building resources for Black-led organizations, rapid response funding to address urgent needs of Black communities, and funding for the M4BL ecosystem to support collective strategizing and power building.

During this grantmaking cycle, the Fund also awarded $60,000 in small grants to organizations doing important work in Black communities, to support them in their ongoing work.

The BLMF is a collaborative effort of the General Service Foundation, the Linked Fate Fund at the Common Counsel Foundation, the Moriah Fund, Open Society Foundation, the Overbrook Foundation, Women Donors Network, a donor advised fund at the Tides Foundation, a donor advised fund at NY Community Trust, and Anonymous Donors. To learn more about the BLMF and join the donor collaborative, please contact blmf@borealisphilanthropy.org.

OSF, of course, is a prominent organizer and major donor of the program. Also listed is the Tides Foundation, which created the national organization and funding mechanism around the Indivisible movement, which billed itself as the “Tea Party of the left.”

This revelation comes at a time when conservatives and Christians shocked by the death of George Floyd are beginning to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement.

We must continue to fight for God’s justice, especially for image-bearers like George Floyd, but let us not be deceived by our emotions and fall into the schemes of these antichrist globalists.

If you appreciate the work we are doing to fight the leftist assault on our values, please consider a small donation to help us continue. Thank you so much!
