The shameful violence that erupted between far-left and far-right protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend was strongly condemned by politicians on both sides of the aisle.
Who was behind it all? Some are pointing blame at leftist billionaire George Soros.
President Donald Trump himself stated that the hateful bigotry displayed had “no place in America” after a clash between white supremacists and radical “Anti-Fascist” counter-protesters left one dead and dozens injured this weekend.
However, the far-left group Refuse Fascism — an organization that was front-and-center at the chaos in Virginia — has announced plans to take these violent protest nationwide on Nov 4.
And they’re receiving thousands of dollars from a Soros-backed group to do so.
Refuse Fascism has bragged about the “righteous” violence they helped organize against Trump supporters in places like Berkeley, Seattle, and Portland this past year.
Emboldened by their clash with actual racists on Saturday, the group has begun organizing major demonstrations in New York and Texas in the Fall.
In February, following one the first major outbreaks of political violence that has plagued America since the election, this pro-communist group was revealed to be a Soros-funded entity by The Daily Caller.
“While it is unclear whether those who carried out the violence [in February] were paid to do so, the benefactors of the Alliance for Global Justice — and Refuse Fascism — are listed online. According to its most recent 990 tax form, Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ) received $2.2 million in funding for the fiscal year ending in March 2016,” The Daily Caller reported. “One of the group’s biggest donors is the Tides Foundation, a non-profit funded by billionaire progressive philanthropist George Soros. Tides gave AfGJ $50,000.”
While the racist terrorism that divided the city of Charlottesville has been strongly condemned by conservative leaders, the far-left — socialist organizations like Refuse Fascism that spend thousands of dollars to encourage riots — have so-far refused to accept their share of the blame.
In early June, for example, a radical leftist that self-identified as an “Anti-Fascist” attempted to assassinate Republican congressmen preparing for the annual Congressional charity baseball game.
“The violence is not indigenous to just one side of the political spectrum. While other entities are farther along, this emergent hard left has coalesced. And we can’t just ignore it,” Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University-San Bernardino, warned The Kansas City Star earlier this year.
In no uncertain terms, The Horn News condemns and denounces racists and white supremacists everywhere. These hate groups stand opposed to the core values of the United States, and their viewpoints should not be tolerated among patriotic Americans. We pray for peace and love for all Americans, regardless of their race, color, creed or gender, and together demand that all people be judged only by the merit of their character.
We call on liberal leaders like George Soros to say the same about the radical communists and violent far-left racists that participate in political violence, instead of funding them.
Here are is the statement by the president regarding the situation —
