Soros, Tucson, and Ben & Jerry Helped Finance Violent Shutdown of Free Speech in Berkeley

The violent suppression of free speech in Berkeley last Wednesday was bankrolled by some familiar names, including Nazi collaborator George Soros and the moonbat-infested city of Tucson:

The Alliance for Global Justice, based in Tucson, is listed as an organizer and fiscal sponsor for Refuse Fascism, a communist group that encouraged left-wingers to shut down the Yiannopoulos event. …

According to its most recent 990 tax form, Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ) received $2.2 million in funding for the fiscal year ending in March 2016.

One of the group’s biggest donors is the Tides Foundation, a non-profit funded by billionaire progressive philanthropist George Soros. Tides gave AfGJ $50,000.

Other notable donors include the city of Tucson and the United Steel Workers labor union. The former gave $10,000 to AfGJ while the latter contributed $5,000.

Ice cream moonbats Ben & Jerry kicked in $20,000.

The rioters succeeded in getting a speaking engagement canceled by starting fires, bombarding the police with fireworks, vandalizing businesses, and more. One Trump supporter was beaten unconscious with shovels and left in the middle of the street; another was sprayed in the face with mace.

Surely after the situation got so far out of hand, Refuse Fascism regretted its involvement and humbly apologized to all concerned, right? Wrong:

Refuse Fascism, which includes Princeton professor Cornel West as one of its founding “initiators,” defended the response, issuing a statement on its website that called the shut down “righteous.”

And on its Facebook page, the group asserted that the vandalism and arson were not “violence.”

As the Left becomes more radicalized, money donated by liberal do-gooders is ever less likely to be put to constructive ends. Soros doesn’t just support foolish policies and terrible political candidates; he backs masked, black-clad goons who employ street violence to silence free speech. That Tucson taxpayers have been forced to support them too is unconscionable.

Do-gooder funding applied in Berkeley.

    Sounds like a criminal conspiracy to me. Time to file charges.

  3. THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084 says:

    Seems a lawsuit for the supporting terrorism is in order. Surely a RICO statute can be invoked to seize the assets of terror support networks

  4. TitzyFritzensimmons says:

    If protestors are being paid, isn’t any damage done to people or property “within the scope of their employment?” Local and state prosecutors need to throw the book at these people.

  5. Kevcar says:

    I think Elliot Ness and his untouchables would end this crap quickly, efficiently and correctly. 20 cops side by side with their Tommy guns chattering. Naturally not for peaceful protests but once the first rock flies or fire starts, they have 45 seconds to clear out or pay the consequences.

  6. Silence Dogood says:

    It’s quite amusing seeing that in their fight against fascism, they have become the very thing they fight against.

  7. Silence Dogood says:

    That would be awesome if they could seize Soro’s assets.

  8. MAS says:

    Can y’all say “R.I.C.O. act”? I knew you could, now maybe the new Fed AG can as well.

  9. BiffWellington says:

    Must say I’ve never eaten any of Ben & Jerry’s products, because I refuse to pay $5 for a pint of frozen crap.

    And this is why we call them the Fascist Left – people who cannot abide freedom and liberty unless it’s by their specifications.

    The 2nd amendment is the best example, bu they are clearly holding only contempt for the 1st.

    -Tucson -and Pima county in which it is located – are both union-controlled, d-cRAT-socialst-run ILLEGALS sanctuaries. Hey, somebody has to keep McRINO in power !!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/97323c96cccf19c65bc168fe3c2d0ff4c661793b60541b0ed9811f9a9b3bdca7.jpg

    Somebody tell me again how you are going to resolve the current conflict in this country peacefully, I love fiction.

    The Soros as Nazi collaborator is an appropriate point because there was a guy in those days who also tried to ignore the obvious and appease / ignore the stated intentions of the Nazi’s(national Socialists), Neville Chamberlain. And the world lived happily ever after?
