George Soros isn’t the only one funneling millions of dollars into the Black Lives Matter movement. The Washington Times is reporting that the Ford Foundation partnered with Borealis Philanthropy to form the Black-Led Movement Fund. They’ve raked in over $100 million in pledges so far. From the Times:
That funding comes in addition to more than $33 million in grants to the Black Lives Matter movement from top Democratic Party donor George Soros through his Open Society Foundations, as well as grant-making from the Center for American Progress.
In doing so, however, the foundations have aligned themselves with the staunch left-wing platform of the Movement for Black Lives, which unveiled a policy agenda shortly after the fund was announced accusing Israel of being an “apartheid state” guilty of “genocide.”
Released Aug. 1, the platform also calls for defunding police departments, race-based reparations, breaking, voting rights for illegal immigrants, fossil-fuel divestment, an end to private education and charter schools, a “universal basic income,” and free college for blacks.[…]
Ford and Borealis are hardly alone: They said the fund will “complement the important work” of charities including the Hill-Snowden Foundation, Solidaire, the NoVo Foundation, the Association of Black Foundation Executives, the Neighborhood Funders Group, anonymous donors, and others.
In addition to raising $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives, the Black-Led Movement Fund will collaborate with Benedict Consulting on “the organizational capacity building needs of a rapidly growing movement.”
Black Lives Matter is becoming increasingly violent, and it appears that it’s not just some grassroots effort to facilitate racial reconciliation. That’s probably the last thing they want.
Now that this much money is being poured into the movement, these protesters and agitators are working at the behest of those at the top. They’re playing the “problem-reaction-solution” game. Their goal is to create chaos, which will elicit a “solution” from the federal government.
