    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?
    The first thing that I noticed in the article is that it states that Soros has given money to groups that were involved, which is a far cry from "funding the demonstrations". I think it's just a beat up Soros article that has no merit.

    Communists funded by a Nazi. What a combination.

    I have to admit that I had doubts about it too, as I couldn't find a corroborating source that didn't refer to that article.

    Is Soros heavily funding left, and ultra left organizations? Absolutely.

    Were some of these organizations at the Ferguson demonstrations? Yeah, I think so.

    At best an indirect connection. Would these organizations been at Ferguson inciting all that conflict, looting and destruction? Again, seems rather likely.

    So why are they supporting and protecting Soros? Makes no sense to me.

    You converted "every single penny" into "not a single penny."

    Hope this helps.

    Oh I see it. So how many pennies did they take into Ferguson then?

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.

    Couldn't say. Given the timeframe involved I'd wager "not a large percentage."

    But have fun with the right wing's favorite bogeyman.

    I always do. He earns every bit - you know, just like those evil horrible Koch's!

    It may be that some were there. That of course does not mean as well that destructive parties and Soros were connected. I think it's just a Mooney hit piece.
