Occupy Wall Street, and the satellite protests it spawned in cities across the U.S. and around the world have been spectacularly violent. Radical activists are responsible for hundreds crimes, including assault, gang rape, arson, rioting, robbery, and a host of others.
Adbusters Media Foundation of Vancouver, Canada, the nonprofit behind the so-called anti-consumerist magazine, has received funding from organizations associated with radical philanthropist George Soros’s Democracy Alliance, a donor collaborative that wants to push America even farther left. The foundation has received $176,500 since 2001 from the Glaser Progress Foundation, which was created by Alliance member Rob Glaser. Glaser heads the online multimedia company RealNetworks.
The Adbusters Media Foundation has also taken in $317,773 from the Tides Foundation since 2001. Tides was created by Drummond Pike, a close friend of ACORN founder Wade Rathke. Rathke was a longtime member of the Tides board of directors. When it was revealed in 2008 that Rathke’s brother Dale had embezzled nearly a million dollars from ACORN, Pike tried to squelch the scandal by writing a six-figure check to cover the perpetrator’s remaining restitution payments.
In anticipation of the May protests Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, himself a radical Saul Alinsky-inspired thug, has increased fines for resisting a police officer.
Longtime Chicago activist Don Rose was undeterred. “The more pugnacious the city gets, the more provocative it becomes.”
