When I saw the headline for this story pass by yesterday, I said to myself, so what else is new. We have been writing about Soros for years (see here) especially as it relates to his one-world goal of erasing borders and flooding first world countries with impoverished migrants.
His role in helping open the flood gates in Europe is well documented.
But, this morning, thanks to Judy, I read the article by a Muslim woman, published in, of all places, the New York Times.
You should read it! See what one diligent investigator can do!
Entitled: ‘Billionaire George Soros has ties to more than 50 ‘partners’ of the Women’s March on Washington.’
In the pre-dawn darkness of today’s presidential inauguration day, I faced a choice, as a lifelong liberal feminist who voted for Donald Trump for president: lace up my pink Nike sneakers to step forward and take the DC Metro into the nation’s capital for the inauguration of America’s new president, or wait and go tomorrow to the after-party, dubbed the “Women’s March on Washington”?
The Guardian has touted the “Women’s March on Washington” as a “spontaneous” action for women’s rights. Another liberal media outlet, Vox, talks about the “huge, spontaneous groundswell” behind the march. On its website, organizers of the march are promoting their work as “a grassroots effort” with “independent” organizers. Even my local yoga studio, Beloved Yoga, is renting a bus and offering seats for $35. The march’s manifesto says magnificently, “The Rise of the Woman = The Rise of the Nation.”
It’s an idea that I, a liberal feminist, would embrace. But I know — and most of America knows — that the organizers of the march haven’t put into their manifesto: the march really isn’t a “women’s march.” It’s a march for women who are anti-Trump.
To understand the march better, I stayed up through the nights this week, studying the funding, politics and talking points of the some 403 groups that are “partners” of the march. Is this a non-partisan “Women’s March”?
Revelation! So, it was Soros who funded the Southern Poverty Law Center report naming me one of the top 15 anti-Muslim extremists in the US.
Asra Q. Nomani continues…..
On the issues I care about as a Muslim, the “Women’s March,” unfortunately, has taken a stand on the side of partisan politics that has obfuscated the issues of Islamic extremism over the eight years of the Obama administration.
“Women’s March” partners include the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has not only deflected on issues of Islamic extremism post-9/11, but opposes Muslim reforms that would allow women to be prayer leaders and pray in the front of mosques, without wearing headscarves as symbols of chastity. Partners also include the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which wrongly designated Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformer, an “anti-Muslim extremist” in a biased report released before the election. The SPLC confirmed to me that Soros funded its “anti-Muslim extremists” report targeting Nawaz. (Ironically, CAIR also opposes abortions, but its leader still has a key speaking role.)
Read it all.
Visit my posts yesterday on how a refugee resettlement contractor, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, was promoting the march and see what Moveon.org (one of many Soros groups) is spearheading.
