|8/16: Racists Fascist Slander Post Against Activist Organizations for the Charlottesville's White Racist, Fascist Violence
Released 25 August 2017  By Lee Siu Hin - National Immigrant Solidarity Network
ALERT! Racists Fascist Slander Post Against Activist Organizations for the Charlottesville's White Racist/Fascist Violence
August 16, 2017
Since early this year and after last weekend's Charlottesville, VA white racist/Fascists riots, there's been far-right/Fascist blogger spreading anti-Semitic and anti-left rumors around the country.
They claims Antifa, and it's fiscal sponsorship organization Alliance for Global Justice(AFGJ), was funded by George Soros, hired "tugs" pretend to be the Fascists, organized the last weekend's violence in Charlottesville: "Soros tax forms show support for Antifa, provoking Charlottesville-like events." the article link: https://soapboxie.com/us-politics/Twitter-Allows-Antifa-to-Threaten-Fake-News-Journalist-Paul-Joseph-Watson
It's very shocked, not only because I know AFGJ has been the well known activists organization, supporting the cause for over 110 originations (we're also the fiscal sponsorship of AFGJ), also between the line they're seems to want to threat a violence against Antifa, AFGJ, and could be also my organization.
The blogger, name "Ralph Lopez" has been spreading the slanders from right-wing to left-wing email lists.
Furthermore, Thump is refusing to full condemn right-wing groups, but accusing "both-sides" were the blame for Chancellorsville violence, and ordering DOJ to demand social networking sites such as Facebook to turn over their activist groups' profile. They could easily accuse AFGJ and it's 110 supported groups for investigation, even right-wing groups can threat us with violence.
Please be aware all these are false, and take clear actions to blog these rumors from spreading slanders further away. Enclosed you the responds from Chuck Kauffman at the AFGJ:
" .,.... This is warmed over Breitbart lies from February when they were accusing AfGJ of being funded by Soros and paying the demonstrators at Trump's inauguration and in Berkeley when that Milo guy was stopped from speaking. The moderators of this listserv should certainly know that Tides Foundation was funding radical groups long before Soros made his fortune crashing Asian Tiger economies by manipulating their currencies. Tides was Nicaragua Network's fiscal sponsor in 1987 when I joined the staff. New World Foundation, I understand, is a Soros foundation and it has apparently given money to one or more of our fiscally sponsored groups -- before there even was an antifa! Today AfGJ, Nicaragua Network's descendant, acts as fiscal sponsor for 110 groups that don't have their own 501(c)(3) status. That includes Movement for Black Lives, Courage to Resist, Free Mumia, Refuse Fascism, and lots of other groups that you are also slandering by allowing this trash to be posted on your listserv.
On behalf of the board and staff of Alliance for Global Justice, I demand that the original slanderous post be removed from the listserv and the archives and that the moderators develop a plan to keep white nationalist, fascist, and racist posts off the listserv....."
