Der Soros und die Frauen

Nachdem ich auf Twitter schräg angegurkt wurde, weil ich die New York Post zitiert habe, probiere ich es nun mal mit der New York Times:

Die nämlich schreiben, dass George Soros ungefähr 50 Verbindungen zum Anti-Trump Women’s March habe. Und er sei einer der größten Spender von Hillary Clinton.

Bei der Gelegenheit sieht man dann auch gleich, wie die US-Medien desinformieren:

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.

Ja, ja, alles so ganz „spontan”.

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.

Following the money, I poured through documents of billionaire George Soros and his Open Society philanthropy, because I wondered: What is the link between one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors and the “Women’s March”?

I found out: plenty.

By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. March organizers and the organizations identified here haven’t yet returned queries for comment. […]

Another Soros grantee and march “partner” is the Arab-American Association of New York, whose executive director, Linda Sarsour, is a march co-chair. When I co-wrote a piece, arguing that Muslim women don’t have to wear headscarves as a symbol of “modesty,” she attacked the coauthor and me as “fringe.”

Earlier, at least 33 of the 100 “women of color,” who initially protested the Trump election in street protests, worked at organizations that receive Soros funding, in part for “black-brown” activism.

Aber die Medien – auch die Deutschen – erzählen uns, dass es dort so viele Gegner gibt, und mehr Leute gegen Trump protestieren als zu seiner Vereidigung gekommen sind. Wenn man dann aber hört, dass die überwiegend eingekaufte Jubelperser – äh, nee, nicht Jubelperser, sondern Protestaraber – sind, dreht sich das rum, dann scheint das eher zu bedeuten, dass Trump sich die Leute nicht einkauft.

Ich finde das frappierend.

Ständig warnen die Medien hier von Fake-News und vor Manipulationen der Social Media durch Agenturen, Bots und so weiter, aber wenn da ein Milliardär Fake-Proteste aufstellt, fallen die alle drauf rein.

Flächendeckendes Medienversagen oder systematische Lüge?

Und wie kann das überhaupt passieren, dass (auch hier) immer wieder alles auf Soros zurückgeht? Dass ein einzelner, demokratisch nicht legitimierter, und hochkorrupter Ideologe so massiv Politik beeinflusst?
