    Some of the groups [...] have long been funded by George Soros and his Open Society Foundations,
    according to the Washington Times.By looking at OSF tax records, the Times discovered that in
    the most recent year for which records are available alone, Soros gave $33 million to radical groups
    that worked to keep Ferguson whipped up and on the front pages across the country.

    According to the Times report, the groups were especially keen to capitalize on any development that
    could reflect badly on conservatives, and among their accomplishments was the popularization of the
    “Black Lives Matter” hashtag on Twitter and manipulation of opinions through Facebook campaigns.

    Without a doubt, these groups were funded by Soros precisely for their ability to serve the purpose
    they achieved, raising a mob and wreaking havoc. They didn’t need a direct order to do the job; they
    had $33 million worth of motivation and encouragement.

    It is not so easy to dismiss what has already become a new grassroots movement in the states (and at one point also went global) too:

    As I said and wrote before: This is based on today's black generations reality checks/wake up calls/etc.

    It's not just about us anymore!

    FYI

    The problem with this analysis is that it may be true that Soros has funded some in the movement, there really is no Black Lives Matter chapter in Ferguson, nor in St. Louis. In Ferguson the movement is completely autonomous, and protests have been led by outside activists and journalists along with some local organizations such as the St Louis based Organization of Black Struggle. The NOI and the Uhuru Movement have been on the ground as well as some Hebrew Israelites. So, BAR is reaching here. Furthermore, the movement has numerous factions with key members starting to splinter thanks to critics such as Gkenn Fird and Boyce Watkins, neither of which to my knowledge have been at Ground Zero doing any organizing themselves.

    Yeah

    Anything is possible

    But they're many players involved

    and few here claim to be doing more than cheer from the sidelines

    Or even be advisors aka coaches

    Not even bound to make a bad call as an unwelcomed referee on the general practices side myself

    fyi

    Interesting that you say that, because
    soros is looked at as the 'koch of the the left'.
