(INTELLIHUB) — Thousands of radical leftist protesters descended on downtown Chicago Friday in what many mainstream news outlets originally called a grassroots reaction to the “hate and terror” of the Donald Trump campaign.

In reality, the groups that shut down Trump’s Friday night Chicago rally were a who’s who of radical leftist protesters and Soros-backed front organizations pushing an extreme anti-capitalist and anti-American agenda. Many of the protesters where also direct supporters of Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and his movement to “tax” (see confiscate by government force) 8 cents out of every 10 Americans make.

The original idea for the violent, free speech stifling protests apparently came from Bernie Sanders surrogate Ja’Mal D Green who put out a Facebook post calling for his radical allies to #SHUTITDOWN which was then picked up by numerous hard left activist groups and pushed until thousands of people ended up in the streets outside of the planned Trump rally, with hundreds more lying about who they were so they could get into the actual event. Remember, until some of these facts came to light, the mainstream media (especially MSNBC) was literally reporting that this was a grassroots reaction to Trump’s racism when in reality it was anything but.

Soros backed MoveOn.org was quick to push the agenda to silence millions of Americans, with the groups executive director of Political Action openly taking credit for the shocking scenes of violence and vowing to continue it in the future.

As Infowars.com reported, “Ilya Sheyman, a failed Illinois contender for Congress and the executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, has taken credit for the violence at a cancelled Trump event last night in Chicago. He promised similar violence and disruption will occur at future Trump political events leading up to the election.”

“Mr. Trump and the Republican leaders who support him and his hate-filled rhetoric should be on notice after tonight’s events,” the George Soros funded MoveOn web page states. “To all of those who took to the streets of Chicago, we say thank you for standing up and saying enough is enough. To Donald Trump, and the GOP, we say, welcome to the general election.”

Obama’s own personal lobbying group wasn’t the only radical leftist organization involved in sending thousands of angry people to confront Americans who simply wanted to see their candidate of choice up close and in person. A Daily Caller breakdown of the groups involved includes:

ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Chicago

The Chicago franchise of an international network started in the wake of 9/11 and among the first to protest against a response in Afghanistan; since then the group is involved in most of the radical left’s favorite causes: anti-capitalist, pro-union, open borders, anti-war, anti-police causes. The day after the Trump rally the group was holding a forum entitled “Taking Action to Support Palestine.”

Illinois Coalition of Immigrant and Rights Reform

This group was not only instrumental in creating not only the most radical local immigration ordinance but championed the case which inspired the DREAM Act.

In 2011, Cook County became the first locality to stop cooperating with the federal government on detainers; detainers became controversial among leftist groups when their use skyrocketed under the now discarded Secure Communities program.

Detainers are holds that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) places on state prisoners who they think also violated immigration law and the hold normally gives the federal government up to two extra days to get any prisoner who would otherwise be released.

Denny McCann was killed in June 2011 when an illegal alien driving about three times the speed limit didn’t stop and dragged him about two hundred feet when Denny was crossing the street. The illegal alien, Saul Chavez, was released from prison in November 2011, rather than be held for ICE, after this ordinance passed and has escaped and is presumed in Mexico: the most high-profile of numerous cases of murderers, rapists, and gang members all let free rather than deported as a result of that policy.

La Raza Chicago.

The Chicago branch of the notoriously radical pro-illegal immigration group had people on site and detailing the events in a post on its site.
interestingly, after conservative leaning media outlets began to expose the actual groups behind the violent attacking of a Donald Trump rally, MSNBC (the same network that pretended it was a grassroots protest for 24 hours before) decided to have their resident hard left Patriot hater Alex-Seitz-Wald publish a piece that revealed the true players behind it.

The article, chalked full of borderline hero worshiping, details the supposed actions taken by Sanders surrogate Ja’Mal D Green in the lead up to the protests and the subsequent onward promotion of it by various hard left activist groups.

Perhaps the most important takeaway from Wald’s piece is the fact that we now have confirmation that mainstream news outlets support and will praise any type of action taken against Trump and his supporters, whether it be non-violent in nature or a straight up rampage like the one seen in Chicago last Friday.

To recap, thousands of protesters, infused with Soros cash and armed with an ideology that the vast majority of Americans literally despise, descended on downtown Chicago last Friday for a violent confrontation with anyone showing up to hear Donald Trump speak. The mainstream media was there to cheer them on the entire time while subsequently covering the cancelled rally with wall to wall coverage over the weekend.

This was not a spontaneous reaction, this was not Americans saying no to Donald Trump, and this was sure as hell was not a non-violent protest.
