Young Bernie followers feel these disruptive protests make sense; why would they protest Republicans since that would simply be a sound of fury, signifying nothing.
Instead Sanders~the hope for disillusioned Clintonistas~ needs to be pressured to follow more of the Black Lives crowd.
Of course, the fact that the BL protesters' behavior was rude, arrogant and self-entitled fits perfectly into the current Leftist playbook, so any concern about the breakdown of the social contract must be shuffled aside in favor of diversity, progress and fairness.
Now that the Ferguson mess has erupted again, let's revisit the fact that the "protesters" are being paid by billionaire disrupter George Soros.
We know he's paid at least $33 million to fund the "protesters" and that his goal is societal breakdown to form a more "Open Society." From the WT:
Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.
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.And Soros funds not only the thugs on the streets but also the thousands of trolls who take to Twitter and social media to sway public opinion and, as the WT notes, write articles that they can reference as "proof" that their opinions are are mainstream:
The plethora of organizations involved not only shared Mr. Soros‘ funding, but they also fed off each other, using content and buzzwords developed by one organization on another’s website, referencing each other’s news columns and by creating a social media echo chamber of Facebook “likes” and Twitter hashtags that dominated the mainstream media and personal online newsfeeds.
Buses of activists from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in Chicago; from the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York and Equal Justice USA from New York; from Sojourners, the Advancement Project and Center for Community Change in Washington; and networks from the Gamaliel Foundation — all funded in part by Mr. Soros — descended on Ferguson starting in August and later organized protests and gatherings in the city until late last month.It's not much of a secret that Soros favors overthrow of the current capitalist system we have in the US, appointing the founder of SDS, a dangerous radical student group from the 60s, as president of his foundation.
Goals of the Open Society Foundation include revealing America as a brutal racist civil rights violating country that needs not only to be moved to the left but needs to redistribute wealth through social justice programs, the recipients presumably determined by the Leftists who fancy themselves the anointed.
Soros has close connections with Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, discussed here at Human Events in 2010:
The personal relationship between Soros and Obama goes back at least as far as June, 2004, when the billionaire Soros hosted a fundraiser for Obama’s U.S. Senate campaign at his New York home. Soros’ and the Lefts’ “Chosen One,” Obama, was successfully elected to the U.S Senate. And, after the failure of their efforts to oust George Bush in 2004, Soros convened another secretive meeting of 70 like-minded and wealthy donors in Scottsdale, Ariz., to take a look at what had gone wrong and to develop a plan for the future. This meeting would eventually be called the “Phoenix Group” and, in the end, Barack Obama would be the benefactor of the efforts that would emerge from this confab.
In December 2006, as Obama was contemplating a run for the White House, George Soros and Barack Obama met to discuss the young senator’s political ambitions. In a matter of a few weeks, on January 16, 2007, Obama announced he was establishing a presidential exploratory committee although, at that point, he’d logged a total of only 143 days in service as a U.S. senator. “I recognize that there is a certain presumptuousness in this, a certain audacity to this announcement,” Obama would concede.Make no mistake: these racial unrest events are neither incidental or coincidental.
