Excerpt from Truth Revolt

Leftist billionaire George Soros donated $33M to "social justice" organizations that helped turn the Ferguson protests into a national spectacle. The donations from the Soros Foundation were distributed to dozens of left-leaning groups, according to an examination of Soros' Open Society Foundation by the Washington Times.
Organizers from professional groups in Washington, D.C., and New York were bussed into the Missouri town to co-ordinate messaging and lobby to news media to cover events using the billionaire's funding.
The money kept protestors on the street and in the media.

Ferguson has been struggling to return to normal after Brown, an 18-year-old black man, was killed by Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson police officer, on August 9. His death has sparked months of sometimes violent protests in Ferguson. A grand jury today declined to indict officer Wilson. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
