Refuse Fascism is the project of a group that has received funding from organizations linked to George Soros and they have put a call-to-action on their website demanding the overthrow of the “Trump/Pence regime” set to begin on November 4th.
“Every force and faction in the power structure would be forced to respond to our demand,” the call-to-action post reads. “The cracks and divisions among the powers already evident today will sharpen and widen. As we draw more and more people forward to stand up, all of this could lead to a situation where this illegitimate regime is removed from power.”
How will they achieve their coup d’etat? By gathering .. or something.
We will gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country, at first many thousands declaring that this whole regime is illegitimate and that we will not stop until our single demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
Antifa has taken the Refuse Fascism call seriously. Last Tuesday, they blocked traffic on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles to hold up signs spelling out “Nov 4 It Begins” while chanting “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.”
The website has pre-planned banners, leaflets, graphics and posters for the event that is to start on November 4, just three days before the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, and go until the Trump administration is thrown from power.
So it begs the question, who is Refuse Fascism?
According to a fundraiser on CrowdRise.com, the project’s website RefuseFascism.org is run by the Alliance for Global Justice.
According to a report by The Daily Caller, AFGJ received money from several progressive organizations with George Soros’ Tides Foundation being one of the largest givers.
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.
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.
The United Steel Workers labor union also contributed $5,000. The city of Tucson is also listed in AfGJ’s 990 as a donor, but a city official says that the city acted merely as a pass-through for a Native American tribe that provided a grant to the activist group. The city official said that no city money went to AfGJ.
Charities associated with several major corporations also donated. Patagonia.org, the outdoor apparel and equipment company, gave $40,000. The Ben & Jerry Foundation, the charity associated with the ice cream maker, gave $20,000. And Lush Cosmetic gave $43,950.
Another bit of irony is seen in the $5,000 contribution from the Peace Development Fund, a group that claims to support organizations that fight for human rights and social justice.
Another major donation came from a group that was chaired by Hillary Clinton during the 1980s. The New World Foundation gave $52,000 to AfGJ.
The current Crowdrise campaign has raised $135,000 of their $175,000 goal specifically for the Nov. 4 revolution. Will this go any better for them than the whole Occupy Wall Street thing went for those losers? Probably not, but it might be entertaining to watch on a Saturday night.
