    There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.

    Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.

    Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.

    Inaccurate headline, again.

    George Soros gives money to hundreds of liberal causes and action groups. So yes, he "hopes to spur civil action". But the article makes it sound like he gave money directly to protesters in Ferguson, MO, which of course he did not.

    From the article:
    Mr. Zimmerman said OSF [Soros' group] has been giving to these types of groups since its inception in the early ‘90s, and that, although groups involved in the protests have been recipients of Mr. Soros‘ grants, they were in no way directed to protest at the behest of Open Society.

    Correction. Soros is a globalist oligarch billionaire not a liberal billionaire. He uses liberalism and democracy as a cover to fool all the useful idiot liberals (and I say that in a kind non threatening way) to destroy democracy right along with themselves.
