‘Slavery Is Over’: Hired Ferguson Protesters Demand Pay

WND, May 19, 2015

“Black Lives Matter” protesters who were apparently hired to cause a ruckus in Ferguson, Missouri, are angry because, they say, they haven’t been paid for their hard work.

So they’ve launched a #CutTheCheck hashtag on Twitter and held a sit-in at the offices of Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, or MORE–the successor group to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, in Missouri.

The protesters have received as much as $5,000 a month to generate civil unrest in the troubled suburb of St. Louis, according to FrontPage Mag’s Matthew Vadum.

“MORE is the re-branded Missouri branch of ACORN, which filed for bankruptcy in late 2010,” Vadum reported. “MORE and other groups supporting the Black Lives Matter movement have received millions of dollars from billionaire financier George Soros.”

The angry agitators held a sit-in outside MORE’s offices on May 14 to demand their money, Weasel Zippers reported. The site posted a video of several black individuals shouting at a white man, who Weasel Zippers identifies as Jeff Ordower, founder of MORE and a longtime leftist activist who previously worked as a union organizer for SEIU in Texas and former Midwest director of ACORN.

MORE’s website, OrganizeMO.org, posted a memo on March 30 that announces a “support fund” offering “travel funding for individuals and grassroots groups that are working to advocate for police accountability and Black lives.”

“A fixed sum of $20,000 has been set aside for this initiative,” the memo states. “… Travel funding is available for Individuals ($300), Groups of 3+ ppl ($1000), and Large Collaborations of 6+ ($2000) to take trips that directly help attendees advocate for police accountability and Black lives.”

A group called Millennial Activists United posted a letter insisting MORE should “cut the checks” to the protesters.

“Early in the movement, non-profit organization MORE, formerly known as the St. Louis chapter of ACORN, and local St. Louis organization Organization for Black Struggle created a joint account in which national donors from all over the world have donated over $150,000 to sustain the movement,” the letter states. “Since then, the poor black [sic] of this movement who served as cash generators to bring money into St. Louis have seen little to none of that money.

“Questions have been raised as to how the movement is to sustain when white non-profits are hoarding monies collected of off [sic] black bodies? When we will [sic] hold the industry of black suffering accountable? The people of the community are fed up and the accountability begins here and now.

The statement continued, “We NEED to be thinking about justice for black people. This means white people must renounce their loyalty to the social normalcy that maintains white power and control. If black lives really matter, justice and self-determination for black people would mean the black community would control [its] own political and economic resources. Moving forward, we are building a board of accountability within this movement. We must funnel economic [sic] into this movement through the hands of black people who are fighting with and for black life. More on this board will be discussed as we develop.”

      Will George Soros be mailing out the checks?

        Nah! He’s the head stingy shylock-in-charge.

        • nordicman

          Can’t Soros be extradited to America for the unrest he’s caused?

          • Earl P. Holt III

            RICO or other criminal conspiracy statutes SHOULD apply…

    • Jefferson Goodberry

      Thus far, MORE/ACORN have dondu nuffins about paying the protesters!

  • It’s not “cut the check,” it’s “gibs me dat.”

    Because, some people think that being a George Soros stooge should pay well.

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      Tell each protester they can have $100,000 in Zimbabwe Dollars but with two conditions: they have to go back to Africa to collect and they can never return.

      • Anglokraut

        Hope they don’t figure out that that won’t even buy a stick of gum.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        How about $250,000 U.S. in newly-printed $10,000 bills, and then sink the barge half-way across the Atlantic???

        My plan would not even have inflationary consequences, because the money would go down with the cargo of obsolete farm equipment…

          “My plan would not even have inflationary consequences, because the money

          Brilliant!

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Thanks. As you can see, I’ve given this a great deal of thought…almost hourly, in fact…!

    • Chip Carver

      Just saw that you beat me to it! George is already concentrating on bigger operations. Of that you can be sure. Maybe he’s busy orchestrating a campaign to help out Mr. Wint, the nice fella who murdered the family in the DC.

        Dare these “youths’ to come out to a rural town or in Idaho or Montana and start your race war. They won’t be leaving in one piece.

        • slobotnavich

          Don’t worry – they only burn down their own neighborhoods, loot their own stores, and generally spend their time just killing each other. This is as it should be and in fact is the Natural Order of Things.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Give ’em FREE VODKA, says I…

      • Lexonaut

        And then pour gasoline into your windpipe and set you on fire — because it’s fun.

    • Big Willy

      *Gasp* Does this mean the protestors were only in it for the money and not to support the gentle giant who was turning his life around by robbing and attacking people? Say it ain’t so!

      • Earl P. Holt III

        I’m skeptical that his being “an aspiring rap artist” is necessarily evidence that he had turned his life around…

  • Wayne Bourne

    Less is MORE. why aren’t they being charged with conspiracy to start a riot ?

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      “why aren’t they being charged with conspiracy to start a riot ?”

      I’ll take – “because they aren’t white” for $500

    • TruthBeTold

      That there were paid agitators should be a national story.

      • APaige

        With the headline: Protestors protesting not getting paid for protesting.

      • nordicman

        So where the ‘civil rights’people in the 60s. Paid to protest and march. Funny, the conservatives today admit the Left puts blacks up their violent, victim behavior BUT they won’t admit that MLK was a communist or that the whole ‘civil rights’ movement was a communist agenda. It’s “oh, judge people by the content like MLK did” or “It’s like when Rosa Parks didn’t move from her seat!” They won’t admit WWII was not the good war we’ve been taught, and they can’t talk like old fashioned right wingers without having 1960s leftist talk. Conservatives today are controlled opposition.

  • Tarczan

    It was obvious these protests were centrally organized and planned, and were not spontaneous. This proves it, but you won’t see this reported by any of the MSM news outlets.

  • Luca D.

    George Soros, SEIU, ACORN, negros, etc. All the usual suspects.

    Let them move back to Africa. I am tired of the whining and also their demands.

    Somewhere, someone is counting that $ 150,000 and planning the next scam.

    • Speedy Steve

      Shhhh! It was the best deal I ever made.

    “Jeff Ordower is a longtime labor and community organizer. Shortly after
    moving to New York for college in 1987, he came out of the closet and
    became active in his school’s LGBT student group, which engaged in a
    range of creative direct actions and won policy changes. Jeff began his
    professional organizing career as a graduate of the AFL-CIO Organizing
    Institute and was a union organizer for SEIU in Texas. After a brief
    escape to the rainforest to learn Spanish, he began organizing for
    ACORN, where he was a Head Organizer in Houston, Philadelphia and
    Connecticut before becoming Midwest Director in 2003. Always interested
    in intersectional work, Ordower was one of a group of founders of the
    Chicago based organization Gender Just, which merged queer, class and
    racial justice.”

      ” Gender Just, which merged queer, class and racial justice.”

      I’m hopelessly confused. If I laugh, what does it mean? That I hate blacks but love rich people?

      By my count there are seven or eight possibilities here depending on how you count lack of laughter. Please help.

        Some things are just too weird to quantify.

  • connorhus

    These Liberal Multi-cultist scream “Koch Brothers financed X” everytime you turn around but mention Soros to them and they are like “Who?”. Liars every one of them.

    • TruthBeTold

      Liberals accuse others of what they do to draw attention away from what they’re doing.

      • Usually Much Calmer

        Yeah, sometimes. Most of the people who do it are just in a state of arrested development, though.

    • journey

      Should send the bill to Soros for all the damages and wrongful deaths and injuries. The guy was kicked out of his home country and this country took him in. What a way to show gratitude.

    • nordicman

      Soros and the Koch Brothers are both of the same, er…’tribe’

      • connorhus

        Not that I am a fan or something. Mostly I only know about them because the lefty Multi-Culters are always screaming about them, but the last bio I read specifically mentioned they were not a Jewish family. Assuming that was the tribe you meant.

    Right. “Slavery” is over.

    The slaves actually did something useful.

  • Jason Lewis

    Paying people to protest. If the ultra right was half as motivated as the ultra left we could get America back.

    • nordicman

      The modern-day white right won’t. They’re afraid of being called racists and think another election will solve all their problems. Like I talk secretly to Germans and Swedes and Brits who hate what’s going on with the muslims and third world scum, BUT when I ask why they wont fight back they say “We’ll get called nazis’ and I said “You sound just like many white americans do”

      • Whitetrashgang

        And lose their jobs.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    “Black Lives Matter” protesters who were apparently hired to cause a ruckus in Ferguson, Missouri, are angry because, they say, they haven’t been paid for their hard work.

    I wonder how much professional looting, rioting and burning pay?

    Since lefties hired them did they at least get a living wage and paid health care?

    If these useful idiots ever figure out that they’re useful idiots, it’ll be elite parts of town that burn to the ground.

    • phillyguy

      They should protest in front of George Soros’s home, demand payment from him who bankrolled the riots anyway

  • rommel10

    I protested at my home all day, i want a check also. 2k for all my sweet and tears

    “We NEED to be thinking about justice for black people. This means white people must renounce their loyalty to the social normalcy that maintains white power and control. If black lives really matter, justice and self-determination for black people would mean the black community would control [its] own political and economic resources”

    Tales of caution, the current demise of former Rhodesia and South Africa.

    • nordicman

      Please, my black brethren, there is an entire place void of a white majority and filled with people who look like you…in Africa.

      • journey

        We all know what that message really means from self hating whites and our “guests”. White societies have been turned upside down globally. Rhodesia and South Africa were smaller social experiments to see how the whites would react. Both were successful just by using the magic word, “racist”.

  • PissedOffScientist

    So that’s what a “community organizer” does…

  • listenupbub

    “If black lives really matter, justice and self-determination for black
    people would mean the black community would control [its] own political
    and economic resources.”

    Wait, wait, wait…

    This is what we have been waiting for! YES

    Blacks live with blacks, in a black nation, and whites do the same!

  • A Freespeechzone

    Hmmm, I’m sure a few of these paid ‘protesters’ availed themselves of the ‘free’ stuff during the looting.

    Shouldn’t the retailers who got ripped off and burnt be compensated by Soros?

    • Az Visigoth

      Yes sir! I think Mr. Soros should compensate for all the damage. Why can’t we start litigating these cases? The gay rights movement used litigation to great advantage. Anyone here have a knowledge of law? Could a class action lawsuit be pressed against Mr. Soros if it can be proved that he was paying demonstrators? Wouldn’t that be poetic justice?

  • Speedy Steve

    The agitators were hired by left-wing socialists. Those organizations are run by the notoriously stingy Eskimos, and we all know how much they like a bargain. I hope the demon-strators got their orders and pay agreements in writing. Good luck, boys.

    Hey, Halfwits! When you sign up to do something illegal (protest, agitate and riot) you don’t have the right to act all surprised when the top guys do something illegal, like forget to pay you. Deal with it.

    If blacks behaved like civilized law abiding citizens instead of destroying their city for no reason, they would have no problem accomplishing something like even getting a job.

    Absolutely. Let blacks control their own political and economic resources. And let whites control theirs. Peaceful separation of the races. It’s best for everyone.
