The rise of the Flea Party has been quick but is it real grassroots? Or is it Astroturf?
Soros and the protesters deny any connection. But Reuters did find indirect financial links between Soros and Adbusters, an anti-capitalist group in Canada which started the protests with an inventive marketing campaign aimed at sparking an Arab Spring type uprising against Wall Street. Moreover, Soros and the protesters share some ideological ground.
So what do you think? One of Barack Obama’s biggest supporters is George Soros, who is linked to the Tides Foundation. The Tides Foundation in turn backs so many smaller left wing organizations that are out there garnering support from and giving it to the Flea Party. In turn, the Flea Party is now protesting big Wall Street types. Did you know that George Soros makes all his money from running his massive hedge fund? i.e. he is a Wall Stree type.
Something smells fishy here.
