Founded in 1998, the Alliance has a long history of anti-American activism. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the Alliance and its president Katherine Hoyt are longtime supporters of the Sandinista (Communist) movement in Nicaragua and the Zapatistas, a Marxist-Leninist guerrilla movement in Mexico.
The Alliance also provides funds for the antiwar group World Can’t Wait (a spinoff of the Revolutionary Communist Party), and Courage to Resist, which encourages U.S. soldiers to desert and supports accused traitor Bradley Manning of WikiLeaks infamy. The Alliance has funded anti-Israel groups including Israeli Anarchists Against the War and Bil’in Center for Joint Struggle.
Soros money provided to the Tides network of philanthropies may also have found its way to Occupy Wall Street.
According to philanthropy databases, the Open Society Institute has given $24.6 million to the Tides network of philanthropies since 1999. Of that total, $18.2 million went to the Tides Foundation and the remaining $6.4 million went to the Tides Center which, like the Alliance for Global Justice, serves as a fiscal sponsor for small or new activist groups.
It is possible that Soros secretly gave money to Occupy Wall Street through Tides. Since 2001 the Tides Foundation has given almost $310,000 to Adbusters, the anti-corporate magazine based in Canada. It is possible that money came from Soros. The Adbusters Media Foundation organized the “US Day of Rage” on Sept. 17 that kicked off the protest that has come to be known as Occupy Wall Street.
One of Soros’s fellow Democracy Alliance members, RealNetworks CEO Rob Glaser, has given to Adbusters Media Foundation. His Glaser Progress Foundation gave the group $176,500 in 2001. The RealNetworks Foundation gave Adbusters $250 in 2002.
The remnants of the ACORN network are also involved in Occupy Wall Street.
As I previously reported, the Working Families Party, an ACORN front group, is participating in the protests by raising money and paying for rent-a-mobs.
Building on evidence I uncovered weeks ago, FoxNews.com is reporting that New York Communities for Change (NYCC), the new ACORN front group that replaced ACORN’s New York chapter last year when ACORN declared bankruptcy, is raising money for Occupy Wall Street. NYCC executive director Jon Kest, a longtime ACORN activist, denies his group is connected to Occupy Wall Street.
MoveOn, which has received millions of dollars from Soros personally, is raising money and trying to help the protesters in lower Manhattan and at “occupations” throughout the country.
The group created a website, Occupy Wish List, where protesters list what they need and donors pledge to give it to them.
Given the growing numbers of rapes and other violent acts being reported at Occupy events from coast to coast, mace and tasers should be added to the list.
