(Bugout.news) There is protesting and free speech – and there is criminal action that poses as protesting and free speech. Protests that turn into riots are no longer protected by the First Amendment, and anyone who funds such activity like a coward behind the scenes is equally guilty of inciting violence and destruction of private property.
Such people should be charged with aiding and abetting such criminality. Enter billionaire businessman George Soros.
As reported this week by The Washington Times, which investigated Soros’ donations to groups that have been spurred to unrest built on racial animosity, the billionaire rabble-rouser has given millions of his fortune to watch American cities descend into chaos:
Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.
In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.
The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.
Combustible, indeed. And expensive. Within months of the rioting, looting and burning of Ferguson businesses and communities, taxpayers were hit with $5.7 million in expenses. City and county officials were not sure where they were going to find the money to make up for the losses in tax base, either, as scores of businesses that were destroyed remain closed today.
In Baltimore, where other protests against police (none of whom have been convicted of the crime of killing Freddie Gray, by the way) led to damaging riots, the cost was greater: $20 million and counting. And again, much of what destroyed isn’t coming back. Most people with the means to leave a volatile city will do so and apply their wares elsewhere.
In essence, Soros encouraged the people he claimed to care about to destroy their own infrastructure, thereby deepening their poverty and decreasing their chances to pull out of their cycle of poverty – cycles that liberals like Soros and the Democratic Party created in the first place with their policies of failure.
All for political empowerment. Soros doesn’t care about “social justice” or “the people;” Soros cares about Soros. He knows as an elite he will never have to deal with folks on the street. And when it all burns to the ground, he’ll be above it, ready with the rest of the global elite to rebuilt in their tyrannical image.
He should not get away with that. Not only should American cities rocked and burned by protests fueled with Soros money bill him for the damage, they should seek legal action against him as well. You can provide people with the opportunity to protest, but you cannot spur them to riot, loot and destroy.
George Soros should be arrested, tried and convicted, with the message sent loud and clear: If you conspire to destroy American cities, you will be held accountable.
