    The OP was clearly trying to imply that $33 million went directly from Soros' pocket to Ferguson, which is kind of also implying that he was involved at a very direct level there. At the VERY least, he was one of many people who gave some money to already established organizations that one MAY, kind of sorta, possibly have helped out at the protests. Maybe. But we'll never know by the shoddy writing in that "news" story presented as fact with almost no sourcing.

    Bloomington authorities file charges against Black Lives Matter MOA protesters
    [...]

    A press release distributed by the city of Bloomington says that 10 protesters "have been formally charged by the Bloomington City Attorney's Office with crimes related to the demonstration to include Unlawful Assembly, Public Nuisance and Disorderly Conduct." A total of 25 were arrested, and the release doesn't rule out that more charges could be forthcoming.

    I think that's just fine and quite right. They did the deed, and they need to be held accountable for it. Had no damages been done, I doubt that there'd be any charges files against them, or even if charges, they'd be very minor ones, IMHO. But frankly, the rioting and looting, that lawlessness, needs to be strongly discouraged. Legal protesting and demonstrations, fine. Damages and looting, not fine.

    George Soros funds Ferguson protests, hopes to spur civil action

    Now during the Ferguson protests, demonstrations, and later the riots, I recall a number of times from a number of reporting sources that there were many 'out of towners', non-local people participating in the Ferguson protests, demonstrations, and later the riots. Seems that if this story is true (I mean, isn't the Washington Times supposed to be a reasonable source?), this would certainly explain why and how these non-local protestors, demonstrators, and rioters could afford to camp out in Ferguson for months on end, right?

    So first, I'm looking I anyone has come across a confirming source other than a quoting and referring of the Washington Times piece.

    Second, since Soros so heavily funded these non-local protestors, demonstrators, and rioters, is he legally liable for the injuries and damages in some form? After all, his spending his money to pay for the mob that was there pretty much caused the fires and looting, right? (Well, OK, maybe not).

    Lastly, what do you think? If Soros is not legally liable, what about the possibly questionable morality of causing, directly or indirectly, the injuries, damages, fires, and police overtime?

    And lets face it, just because Soros is rich doesn't mean he's stupid. I doubt he'd give money directly to any group - there will always be inbetweens just in case the money can be directly traced back to him. And yes, the state of journalism in this country has been scraping the bottom for quite a while - it's like that all over. On that sad fact we can agree.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well, I dispute that I presented that article as any sort of fact (the writer of the article, maybe, probably).

    My doubts about it were such that I was asking for and looking for, some sort of confirmation, or exactly what's happening in here, which a critical review of it. And isn't that kinda the purpose of this forum? To review and discuss these things and other things with a wider audience, with a greater critical eye, better than driving your family up a wall with these sorts of discussions?

    Did you notice how vague the article was on specific dates?

    In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year
    Doesn't say which year though, but if you read far enough, you'll find these:

    Colorlines is an online news site that focuses on race issues and is published by Race Forward, a group that received $200,000 from Mr. Soros’s foundation in 2011.

    The group received $150,000 from Mr. Soros in 2011.
    Mr. Wright was Mr. Obama’s pastor in Chicago before some of his racially charged sermons, including the phrase “God damn America,” forced Mr. Obama to distance himself. SDPC received $250,000 from Mr. Soros in 2011.

    That's right, Soros gave $33M to the Ferguson protests, in 2011. I assume this is the year they meant, as no other year is mentioned nearly as often.
    So follow me into the desert

    And all the little pigs have God

    Yeah I'm not holding your responsible for the way the article was written. That horrible crap is just the writer's fault. The only thing I can really fault you for is your misleading presentation via the thread title.
