    Donating to those organizations <> funding the march. Try again.
    Now, if you’d like to talk about the Koch brothers and their group, Americans for Prosperity, funding the “grassroots” tea party, I’m all in. There is a direct correlation there from organizing and paying for things like tour busses.
    But, you and the author of that often trod out article, failed to show how Soros directly funded the march. Only that he has donated to these organizations.
    You, like some of the republican congressmen who claim “they were paid protestors” fall short on any evidence.

    Funded by Soros? Show your work. This isn’t Stormfront or RedState. Prove it or move on.

    Two of the leaders of the Women’s March were a Muslim woman wanting to enforce Sharia Law, a very anti-Western religious code, and another one had been convicted of torturing and murdering a man. Plus, the whole march was funded by the likes of George Soros.
