#BlackLivesMatter is a phony astroturf movement funded by the establishment
A leaked list shows that Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE), a group funded by George Soros, paid over 80 individuals and organizations to protest during civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri last year.
The details came to light after black activists held a sit in protest at the offices of MORE last week in St. Louis to complain about the fact that they hadn’t been paid the money they were promised for taking part in the demonstrations.
In order to show where the money had been going, MORE was forced to release the following list of who had been paid what.
Tweets published by MORE also confirm that the organization hired people to protest. As the Washington Times revealed, MORE was one of the groups that received a share of the $33 million invested into the #BlackLivesMatter movement by billionaire George Soros.
As Weasel Zippers documents, the list contains several names of key #BlackLivesMatter organizers, including Lisa Fithian, who spent time in Ferguson last year training demonstrators to “simulate chaos”.
“Also of note, you can see that some people are being paid to travel to other places to protest, you can see the travel to Selma, and to D.C., as well as money paid out for ‘vans’, including to a union for providing the vans. Elizabeth Vega got $2000 for ‘activist trip to Baltimore’,” reports the website.
The list also includes a big payout to Jeff Ordower, the founder of MORE and an organizer for the SEIU and ACORN.
Millenial Activists United was another Ferguson protest group that received over $2,000 from the Soros front organization.
As Gateway Pundit revealed last week, some protesters admitted to being paid $5,000 a month to take part in the Ferguson demonstrations, which led to the rise of the divisive #BlackLivesMatter movement that has polarized America down racial lines.
This once again underscores the fact that the #BlackLivesMatter movement, members of which have repeatedly advocated violence, is a fake astroturf campaign that is controlled by big money and powerful left wing interests. There is nothing grass roots about this movement, which is why it has only served to discredit opposition to the genuine problem of police brutality.
