George Soros Role In the Ferguson Protests

One of the most liberal men in the entire world has been giving out his fortunes the entire time he has been rich. He is arguably the most generous man in the world and is known to have given out over 12 billion dollars since he became financially empowered despite holding the title of the Man Who Broke the Bank of England. George Soros, the Man Who Broke the Bank of England, was not always rich, neither was he always American. However, as you will note, he was always determined to assert his sovereignty and that of the people with whom he came into contact.

The uncanny economist and financial investor was born in Hungary back in the days when the Nazi Regime ran havoc in the world, slaughtering the Jewish people of Germany and other sovereign nations’ on whose territories they encroached. He, in his formative years, found himself in a peculiar situation where his fellow Jews were being flocked together in concentration camps and executed simply for being Jewish. Since he could not willingly concede into slaughter, he and his family forged documents and faked their identities to stay alive. In a concerted effort to preserve life, his family plotted with other Jews to pretend, and they made fake documents for other Jews as well. He later managed to leave Hungary for London where he worked two shifts like a manual and casual laborer to raise fees for his studies at the London School of Economics. After achieving his education, he flew to the United States to chase the American dream. Read more at Politico about George Soros.

George Soros became financially independent and even started his hedge fund to consolidate financial gains. He inclined to philanthropy with every dollar that he made on top of what he needed to stay afloat. By 1979, he had founded the Open Society Foundations. His style of philanthropy started taking shape when he offered liberal black South Africans scholarships to equip them with the necessary skills to oppose the Apartheid Regime. His liberal nature took more shape when he funded the publication and duplication of banned literature in oppressive African regimes that tried to silence the people. The documents sparked rebellious feelings, and the people began agitating for democracy and the respect for their rights. He continued to flex his financial muscle against oppression across the world and even concentrated his dedicated efforts in strengthening the Democratic Party in the United States.

The Ferguson Protests

The Ferguson protests erupted spontaneously and violently after a racially motivated police murder of an unarmed 18-year-old. The situation was spinning out of control and could have resulted in further racially motivated violence. George Soros sought to intervene and better organize the unfortunate event to consolidate gains against racial profiling, police brutality and discrimination. He spent 33 million dollars organizing activists, bus rides and mass social media campaigns with the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag campaigns. Lobby groups that benefit from his philanthropy also created documents capturing cases of police brutality in the Island and argued why and how errant police officers should be held accountable for their actions for the sake of peace and confidence in the police by the general public.
