Who Actually Funded Berkeley Riots vs. Who is Getting Blamed (Video)

Thanks to hundreds of emails released by Wikileaks, and several of James O’Keefe’s operatives who managed to infiltrate the Democrat Party at the highest levels and catch them on film,
the American people got to see first hand throughout the 2016 election
how the Democrats and the far-left do not hesitate when it comes to using violence to further their political agenda,
and then get their lackeys in the mainstream media to help them shift
the blame onto Republicans using various off the wall and baseless
accusations.

This past week Milo Yiannopoulos,
a conservative writer for Breitbart news, was supposed to be a guest
speaker at UC Berkeley, however Berkeley’s campus police had to halt the
event when over 150 “protestors” (aka domestic terrorists), began
violently rioting, assaulting people, causing property damage, and
setting large fires, and all because they did not agree with Milo
politically.

In the wake of that fiasco,
Berkeley’s Robert Reich had the nerve to go on CNN and claim the
organizers of the riot were most likely Milo Yiannopoulos and Breitbart
News, and that the violence was orchestrated as part of a big publicity
stunt to help Donald Trump strip the University (COUGH) of federal
funds. WHAT?!?!? For Reich to say such a thing, just shows what an
utterly shameless and despicable human being (COUGH) he is. For those
who don’t know, Reich is the Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at
the University of California at Berkeley and Senior Fellow at the Blum
Center for Developing Economics, and he also served as Secretary of
Labor during the Clinton administration (shock right?).


Sadly, Robert Reich is not the
only member of Berkeley’s faculty with a very warped sense of reality.
In the last few days it has also come to light that Dabney Miller, another Berkeley faculty member, beat a student showing support for Donald Trump to a pulp,
took pictures of the bloodied student while he was curled up in a fetal
position on the sidewalk, and then posted the pictures to his Twitter
account. And these lunatics wonder why President Trump is talking about
taking away federal funds? Seriously?

The following video summarizes who was
really behind the riots, and it shouldn’t come as a shock to learn that
the group responsible, The Global Alliance for Justice, gets a large
percentage of its financing from George Soros by way of his non-profit
organization known as The Tides Foundation. Go figure right? Who would
have thought George Soros was involved? Don’t expect to hear a word of
this from the mainstream media… 

Ask yourself, when will the lies stop?

 

Information Liberation Report

No one could have predicted this.

From The Daily Caller:
The left-wing group that helped organize
the violent shut down of the Milo Yiannopoulos event at the University
of California, Berkeley on Wednesday is backed by a progressive charity
that is in turn funded by George Soros, the city of Tucson, a major
labor union and several large companies.
The Global Alliance for Justice, based in
Tucson, is listed as an organizer and fiscal sponsor for Refuse
Fascism, a communist group that encouraged left-wingers to shut down the
Yiannopoulos event.
 
…While it is unclear whether those who
carried out the violence were paid to do so, the benefactors of the
Alliance for Global Justice — and Refuse Fascism — are listed online.
 
According to its most recent 990 tax
form, Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ) received $2.2 million in
funding for the fiscal year ending in March 2016.
One of the group’s biggest donors is the
Tides Foundation, a non-profit funded by billionaire progressive
philanthropist George Soros. Tides gave AfGJ $50,000.
 
Other notable donors include the city of
Tucson and the United Steel Workers labor union. The former gave $10,000
to AfGJ while the latter contributed $5,000.
 
Charities associated with several major
corporations also donated. 
Patagonia.org, the outdoor apparel and
equipment company, gave $40,000. The Ben & Jerry Foundation, the
charity associated with the ice cream maker, gave $20,000. And Lush
Cosmetic gave $43,950.
 
Another bit of irony is seen in the
$5,000 contribution from the Peace Development Fund, a group that claims
to support organizations that fight for human rights and social
justice.
 
Another major donation came from a group
that was chaired by Hillary Clinton during the 1980s. The New World
Foundation gave $52,000 to AfGJ.
 
I was assuming this was a grassroots group funded by small donations averaging under $20.

Yahoo reproted:

The events at Berkeley Wednesday night have been a boon to Milo Yiannopoulos, of Breitbart News, and to Steve Bannon, formerly head of Breitbart News and now Trump’s consigliere.
 
As you may know, on Wednesday night,
February 1, Berkeley gave Yiannopoulos a major forum to spout his racist
and misogynistic vitriol. But police had to cancel the talk because
about 150 masked agitators
threw Molotov cocktails, smashed windows where Yiannopoulos was
scheduled to speak and threw rocks and fireworks at the police –
delivering made-for-TV images of a riot.
 
According to a promotional Breitbart story that ran before the event, Yiannopoulos was going to “ call for the withdrawal of federal grants and the prosecution of university officials who endanger their students with their policies.”
 
Which is exactly what Trump did via tweet
early the next morning:: “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech
and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view
— NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”
 

Thursday night, Yiannopoulos had a friendly interview on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” – a show that, according to the Washington Post, has ridden anger at left-wing activism into best-in-class prime time ratings.

 
Yiannopoulos wasn’t asked about the
content of the speech that was shut down. The conversation focused
instead on how Berkeley proved the point that the Left was ceding its
right to federal grants by cracking down on free speech.

Protesters on February 1, 2017 in
Berkeley, California. Robert Reich asks, were Milo Yiannopoulos and
Brietbart News in cahoots with the agitators, in order to lay the
groundwork for a Trump crackdown on universities and their federal
funding? Elijah Nouvelage/Getty
Which raises the possibility that
Yiannopoulos and Brietbart were in cahoots with the agitators, in order
to lay the groundwork for a Trump crackdown on universities and their
federal funding.
 
Thursday night on CNN, I said “I wouldn’t
bet against” that possibility. Almost immediately an indignant article
appeared in Breitbart News, misleadingly headlined “Robert Reich Lies, Claims Breitbart News Organized Berkeley Riots.”
 
Hmmm. Connect these dots:
 
(1) Yinnopoulos writes for Breitbart News, which Steve Bannon – Trump’s strategy director – ran before joining Trump.
(2) Before Yiannopoulos speaks at
Berkeley, Breitbart publishes an article saying that Yiannopoulos will
call for the withdrawal of federal grants and the prosecution of
university officials who endanger their students with their policies.
(3) Berkeley opens its doors to Yiannopoulos, but campus police have to cancel the event because of masked agitators.
(4) Hours later, Trump issues a
misleading tweet, accusing the university of not allowing free speech
and promoting violence against innocent people with different views and
threatening to withhold federal funds.
(5) The next night, Yiannopoulos on Fox
News says the incident proves that universities like Berkeley don’t
deserve federal grants by cracking down on free speech.
(6) That same night, on CNN, I raise the
possibility that Yiannopoulos and Breitbart could have been
collaborating with the agitators – saying “I wouldn’t bet against it.”
This generates a belligerent column in Breitbart with a misleading
headline calling me a liar for claiming that Breitbart News organized
the riots.


I don’t want to add to the conspiratorial
musings of so many about this very conspiratorial administration, but
it strikes me there may be something worrying going on here.
 
I wouldn’t bet against it.
 
Robert Reich is the chancellor’s professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkeley,
and a senior fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economies. He
served as secretary of labor in the Clinton administration, and
Time magazine
named him one of the 10 most effective Cabinet secretaries of the 20th
century. He has written 14 books, including the best-sellers
Aftershock, The Work of Nations and Beyond Outrage and, most recently, Saving Capitalism. He is also a founding editor of The American Prospect magazine,
chairman of Common Cause, a member of the American Academy of Arts and
Sciences and co-creator of the award-winning documentary
Inequality for All.
