We have some pretty good investigators here at Grok, but on the national scene, few are as observant as Stacy McCain, or as willing to turn over Democrat rocks as Matthew Vadum. Indeed the Soros angle on a recent Democrat training session was so strong that Stacy was wishing for Beck to be back with a chalkboard special 🙂
In fact, there was so much to tell, that Stacy has a post over at American Spectator’s “Spectacle Blog“, as well as a long article at The Other McCain. I’ll let him pick up the story from here: The Dots Get Connected: Soros Ally Teaches Democrats Cloward-Piven?
Could we get Fox News to bring back Glenn Beck and his chalkboard for a two-hour special? Because what began with a seemingly minor item Friday in the Washington Examiner has exposed a direct connection between congressional Democrats and the radical network Beck so vividly described, involving George Soros, ACORN, SEIU and, yes, the notorious “Cloward-Piven Strategy.”
Before we get to the exclusive breaking news part of the story, let me recount how these dots got connected: Yesterday, I linked Joel Gerhke’s Examiner story in a post titled “Great: Corporate America Now Paying Democrats to Call Americans Racist,” which mentioned that the 2010 annual report for Maya Wiley’s Center for Social Inclusion (PDF, see Page 13) “lists many of the usual suspects, including George Soros’s Open Society Institute and the Soros-funded Tides Foundation.”
Read the rest over at The Other McCain – great writing and lots of detail!
Don’t forget to check out the companion blog post at the Spectator:
Key Soros Ally Provides Race-Rhetoric Training Session for House Democrats Here’s the top of the article to get your attention:
A non-profit organization that provided training last week to House Democrats, portraying Republican opponents as racially motivated, has received significant funding from foundations linked to controversial left-wing multibillionaire George Soros.
Soros’s Open Society Institute has given $75,000 to the Center for Social Inclusion, which has also received more than $850,000 from the Soros-connected Tides Foundation/Tides Center since 2005, according to documents obtained by The American Spectator(Click the link to read the whole thing)
