Tax-Exempt Terrorism: Cash From Soros Sponsors Communist ‘Antifa’ Group

Posted on | April 18, 2018 | 1 Comment


A tax-exempt 501(c)3 group with ties to billionaire financier George Soros contributed $50,000 to fund a dangerous “Antifa” group linked to the Revolutionary Communist Party:

The Left’s explosive, prolonged rage at the election of President Donald Trump on Nov. 8, 2016, gave new life to the ultra-violent leftist movement known as Antifa. . . .
Reports of Antifa violence are everywhere, which is why the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has quietly designated Antifa as “domestic terrorists.” . . .
Antifa is not a single organization: it is a movement or coalition of leftist groups, each of which claims to combat “fascism” . . . The word Antifa itself is a truncation of anti-fascist. . . .
Determining who funds Antifa is difficult because the movement is highly decentralized and consists of private individuals and loosely affiliated groups. . . .
Nonetheless, the left-wing billionaire George Soros has ties to Antifa through a group called the Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ). Soros’s philanthropy, known at the time as the Open Society Institute, gave $100,000 to AfGJ ($50,000 in 2004 and $50,000 in 2006).
Acting as a fiscal sponsor, AfGJ gave $50,000 to Refuse Fascism, an unincorporated Antifa group. Fiscal sponsors are recognized tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofits that take in donations on behalf of unincorporated or small groups so that donors can deduct the donations from their taxes, charging the group receiving the donation a processing fee. . . .
Refuse Fascism participated in rioting on Feb. 1, 2017, at the University of California, Berkeley, with the goal of preventing conservative controversialist Milo Yiannopoulos from giving a speech. The rioting caused more than $500,000 in damage.
Stopping someone from speaking is called no-platforming (or sometimes de-platforming). Summoning the spirit of “Repressive Tolerance” essayist Herbert Marcuse, the so-called father of the New Left who favored shutting down non-leftists, Antifa and others on the far Left believe that fascists are not entitled to free speech.

Police say ‘Antifa’ protester Eric Clanton attacked Trump supporters in Berkeley.

“Antifa” uses violence to intimidate and silence its opponents. Eric Clanton, a college philosophy teacher, was arrested last year after police say he attacked Trump supporters at a rally in Berkeley.

Refuse Fascism is a front group controlled by the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), a bizarre Maoist group that has been called a “cult,” as I explained less than two weeks after the 2016 election:

Two separate Marxist groups — the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) and the Workers World Party (WWP, a/k/a ANSWER Coalition) — have been prominent in anti-Trump protests since the election.
“Don’t collaborate” with the president-elect, RCP tells Americans.
The RCP is a Maoist cult led by Bob Avakian, while the WWP was founded by a disgruntled Trotskyist named Sam Marcy in 1959. I first became familiar with these groups when I covered anti-globalization rallies in Washington, D.C., in 1999, and they were also prominently involved in anti-Iraq War protests circa 2003-2006. The use of “front groups” and phony “coalitions” to conceal their anti-American origins is a tactic Communists have used since the 1930s, and this has continued in the post-Cold War era. Ten or 15 years ago, many anti-war protests were led by a group calling itself Refuse and Resist which was, in fact, a front led by RCP member Clark Kissinger.

RCP protested at the 2016 Republican convention in Cleveland:


“There will be no peace unless there is justice,” Professor Cornell West said Tuesday in a speech to an anti-police rally here organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP). Speaking through a megaphone amid a crowd of protesters gathered at Public Square in downtown Cleveland, West invoked “the legacy of white supremacy in this country that goes back 400 years” to condemn police.
West spoke in front of a giant RCP banner declaring, “Time to Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution. STOP MURDER BY POLICE.” Activists with the RCP held aloft signs that read, “America Was NEVER Great! We Need to OVERTHROW This System!”

A violent group calling for the overthrow of America and getting funds from tax-exempt 501(c)3 groups? President Trump should stop this.
