    Big money donations all meant to undermine the president.

    Donors to anti-Trump 'resistance' group revealed

    The hidden donors to a prominent anti-Trump "resistance" organization are revealed in unredacted tax forms obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

    The Center for Community Change, a Washington, D.C.-based 501 (c)(3) progressive community organizing group that does not reveal its donors, has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after the November elections. The organization's members sit on the boards of other prominent liberal activist groups.

    The Free Beacon has obtained the group's unredacted 2015 tax forms that shed light on its funders, who provide millions of dollars in assistance. The group appears to rely heavily on a few major liberal foundations, organizations, and unions.

    The Center for Community Change's largest contribution was $3,000,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which was initially created by Will Kellogg, the food manufacturer and founder of Kellogg Company. The Ford Foundation, which was first created by the founders of the Ford Motor Company, added a $2,350,000 donation. The Open Society Foundation, a foundation run by liberal billionaire mega-donor George Soros, gave $1,750,000 to the Center for Community Change.

    Other donors to the organization include the California Endowment, which gave $524,500; the Marquerite Casey Foundation, which gave $515,000; Fidelity Charitable Gift, which donated $505,100; and the National Immigration Law Center, which gave $316,000.

    Oh my, the horror that anyone would dare oppose Der Furrier. :eek:

    What do you suppose should be done with them? Should we march them off to Dachau? Think we could rent the actual Dachau from Germany, or would it be more cost-effective to build our own? That's a few jobs --- and we could make Mexico pay for it.

    How 'bout gas chambers? Think we should build gas chambers? Because an alternative might be to create a "reality" show where Merkins get to be on a firing squad, after of course winning a round of Wheel of Fortune. Think of the ratings! :eusa_dance:

    Stop with the offensive hyperbole please.

    Simple. This is transparency and if these donors support their efforts they will stand behind them. In turn, you can choose to spend your hard earned money at businesses you support or don't support. That's capitalism.

    :lol: No Shirley, that's not what capitalism is.

    Capitalism is more like the game show I just described. The key word is ratings. You know, that bullshit fake-ideal your orange-colored idol is always chasing. Those things.

    So what DO you think should be done with those who dare to criticize Der Furrier? How 'bout we stamp them all with a branding iron, that they may be readily identified and scourged in the streets? A short random term like, I dunno, "Juden"?

    It doesn't matter if it is "their money"; they can't do anything anti-social with it or abuse the advantage they have over the rest of us by controlling the government and society.

    It's more a matter of outing their organizations so folks know where their donations are really going which is to hate groups. When the $$$$ dry up, they will become terminal and shrivel all on their own.

    Number one --- where do you see any mention of "hate groups"?
    Ford? Kellog's? Really? "The best to you each morning" is a hate group? [​IMG]

    And number two --- why did you strip my name out of my quote? Were you hoping I'd never see this post?
