George Soros used the Ferguson Protests to Bring about Justice

George Soros is a man who understands the importance of justice. This concept is something that he has been wrestling with all of his life. When he was a teenager living in Hungary the Nazi party overtook his homeland. He experienced great injustice at the hand of this tyrannous government organization.

Throughout his long and prosperous life George Soros saw how injustice has harmed many people. He has seen many immigrants, refugees and minorities all suffer at the hand of governmental institutions that should have protected and cared for them.

Soros has been working for social causes for many years but his work really picked up during the 2000s when he retired from business. This wealthy business man is the world’s 30th richest person and he now uses his vast fortune to fund liberal, social and political organizations.

This effort is important for keeping traditional governments and institutions in check, transparent and accountable. That is the strength of George Soros. He is a powerful man with great resources that he uses to keep the world’s political system from becoming unbalanced. Know more on cnbc.com about George Soros.

The protests that took place in Ferguson back in 2014 is a perfect example of George Soros putting his resources into action. Soros organized various groups to travel into Missouri to support the Black Community in their struggle for justice.

One social organization known as Black Lives Matter was the focal point of Soros’s efforts. This particular African American political social group gained national exposure from this incident. The other liberal groups that were sent into Ferguson were there to primarily support BLM since it was to lead the way on this particular cause.

The Michael Brown shooting by the Missouri Police Department is what started the Ferguson protest movement. While the shooting death of an African American male is not new, this incident proved that black people had enough injustice at the hand of law enforcement officials. Soros knew that black people had to act on behalf of their community. This is why the Black Lives Matter group was sent out to deal with the situation.

Soros was more than aware of the problems that black people face when confronting the police. He sees the police as a source of injustice against minorities. Keep in mind that Soros does not condemn all law enforcement departments.

He just wants to make sure that corrupt officers and practices are being identified and eliminated. He also wants police departments to change some of their policies regarding minorities. Another change that Soros is seeking is better police relations with the minority communities that they serve. Read this article at Washington Times.

George Soros wants all people to experience justice and equality. However, he knows this will not happen if an institution within a society is acting in an injustice manner towards members of particular community. That is the reason why he helped to fund the protest movement in Ferguson. He just wants things to be better for minority communities throughout America and the world.

Contributions Roll In to Grass Roots Movement

When it comes to speaking up against the government, individuals usually don’t have a voice. Especially when going up against large groups of lobbyists. But the End Citizens United political action group is changing that.

Thanks to a Supreme Court ruling establishing that “corporations are people”, conglomerations, wealthy individuals, unions and other special interest groups are now able to contribute unlimited funds for elections held in this country. The result of this ruling has created an environment where “big money” is in a position to influence elections. There is no longer transparency regarding contributions. Many voters are of the opinion that those with the most money, win.

Enter End Citizens United, is a new grass roots organization aimed at campaign finance reform. Garnering its name from the political action committee Citizens United, End Citizens United is gaining ground in its fight against those using their monetary influence in elections. It is doing this by obtaining contributions to support Democrats who back campaign reform.

Recent candidates whom the ECU has endorsed for the 2018 cycle include Jon Ossoff for Congress along with Tammy Baldwin, Sherrod Brown and Jon Tester, all for the Senate. Each has been vocal champions of finance reforms.

Established March 1st, 2015, End Citizens United is gaining traction. In just two years the organization has grown to 3 million members. Supporters of the group are fighting back against wealthy individuals and corporations who they feel are ‘ trying to buy our elections’. And they have become a force to be reckoned with.

Already amassing $4 million in donations in the first quarter of 2017, sources report they are on track to bring in an additional $30+ million by the midterm Congressional elections. This $4 million was collected from approximately 330,000 donors, many of who contributed to End Citizens United for the first time. Contrary to ‘big money’ contributions, this year’s average contribution to End Citizens United was just $14. Compare that to what Unions and Special Interest Groups contribute and it is apparent that when joined together for a common cause, the population does have a voice.
