Imagine if the Koch brothers had financed a group that was regularly disrupting and shutting down events of candidates that they opposed. Does anybody doubt that the Koch connection would come up in the first paragraph, if not the first sentence, of most news stories about such disruptions? Yet somehow, complete silence from the MSM on the connection of George Soros to #BlackLivesMatter even though he is the providing most of the finances to that organization. Also mysterious is how the MSM also fails to note that Hillary Clinton, whom Soros supports, has not had her events disrupted by #SorosMoneyMatters (also known as #BlackLivesMatter).
Two who were targeted by #SorosMoneyMatters were Hillary opponents Martin O'Malley and Bernie Sanders. The latter had the misfortune of having not only his large Seattle speech on Saturday, with an estimated 12,000 in the audience, disrupted but also completely shut down. Here is a sad video of several #BlackLivesMatter payees shutting down that Seattle speech as poor Bernie comes off as a hapless Elmer Fudd, unable to stand up to the Soros payroll.
The strong financial connection between billionaire George Soros and #BlackLivesMatter was revealed recently by Tom Blumer on NewsBusters which included this quote from investigative reporter Kelly Riddell of the Washington Times:
...Black Lives Matter is really an umbrella slogan kind of group that encompasses a lot of social justice workers and a lot of social justice organizations. And it's a group that was started by three women that work at Soros-backed organizations that are into community organizing, into kind of riling up activists.
Even the normally clueless DUers at the Democratic Underground are several steps ahead of the MSM as to who is financing #BlackLivesMatter and why as can be seen in these observations from peacebird:
BlackLivesMatter was given million$ by Soros after Ferguson. soros=Hillary Benefactor.
Begs the question: are BLM only targetting Bernie to swiftboat him for hillary?
...Has Hillary been targetted by BLM? No. Is Soros her supporter, Yes. Is he funding BLM, Yes.
It begs the question, why is only Bernie getting attacked?
BlackLivesMatter is looking more and more like a partisan Swiftboat group
A poll at the site shows 71% of the respondents agree with peacebird. Meanwhile silence from the MSM as to the seemingly ulterior but really very obvious motives of #BlackLivesMatter.
