Black Lives Matter: The Perils of Liberal Philanthropy
This carefully research article first published in 2016 shows that Black Lives Matter has been funded by philanthropists and corporate foundations including Soros’ Open Society Initiative and the Ford Foundation which has links to the CIA.
The underlying objective is ultimately to control Black Power.
How can activists take an effective and meaningful stance against neoliberalism and racism when their NGO is funded by the financial establishment.
“Manufactured Dissent”. The philanthropists are “funding dissent” with a view to controlling dissent.
The Rockefellers, Ford et al have funded the “anti-globalization movement” from the very outset of the World Social Forum (WSF).
The WSF is said to have transformed progressive movements, leading to what is described as the emergence of the “Global Left”. Nonsense.
Wall Street foundations support the protest movement against Wall Street? How convenient.
We are dealing with a network of corporate funding of so-called “progressive” organizations. This networking of funding dissent is a powerful instrument.
Real progressive movements have been shattered, largely as a result of the funding of dissent.
A campaign is ongoing across America. Black Lives Matter (which is playing a key role in combating racism and the police state) is funded by the same financial interests which are behind the deadly lockdown: WEF, Gates Foundation, Rockefeller et al.
The closure of the US economy supported by Big Money has been conducive to mass unemployment and despair. A meaningful “mass movement” against racism and social inequality cannot under any circumstances be funded by Big Money foundations.
To put it bluntly: You cannot organize a mass movement against the Empire and then ask the Empire to pay for your travel expenses.Michel Chossudovsky, June 2, 2020
Billionaires back Black Lives Matter
In the face of rising popular opposition to war, police violence and social inequality, the decision to advance the racialist program of Black Lives Matter is aimed at dividing the working class and preventing the emergence of an independent and unified working class movement against the capitalist system.
Black Lives Matter cashes in on black capitalism
The central purpose of “Vision 4 Black Lives,” and Black Lives Matter, has nothing to do with securing education, health care or other social rights for any section of the working class. It is to divide the working class, subordinate opposition to the Democratic Party and win more opportunities for privileged sections of the upper middle class.
