“Brett Kavanaugh was disqualified before Christine Ford came out with her allegations and we still think he’s disqualified and we’re going to do everything we can to keep him off the Supreme Court.” – Linda Sarsour, Political Activist//Radical Islamist/Co-Chair “Women’s March”
FoxNews.com reports that
Thousands of liberal protesters, fired up by Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, marched up Capitol Hill on Thursday to protest Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court and put pressure on the handful of undecided senators who will determine whether Kavanaugh gets confirmed in the coming days.
By Thursday afternoon, Capitol Police began arresting hundreds of protesters inside the Hart Senate Office Building who raised their fists and loudly started chanting “Kavanaugh has got to go.” Arrests were made after protesters began sitting down in the building’s atrium, refusing to cooperate with law enforcement.
In all, some 302 protesters were arrested and charged with unlawfully demonstrating in Senate office buildings Thursday, police said.
During the rallies and marches, protesters made it clear they were mad that Kavanaugh – who has denied allegations of past sexual assault – might be confirmed as early as this week.
Midday Thursday, demonstrators congregated at the Barrett Prettyman Courthouse in Washington, where Kavanaugh currently works as a United States Circuit Judge.
They then marched through the National Mall to the Supreme Court, where they shut down the street in front of the court and rallied some more. Speakers called out Republican senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine.
“Senator Murkowski, do you believe us?” a female speaker from Alaska said on the steps of the Supreme Court. “You better believe us. You better believe survivors.”
Protesters waved signs that said, “Believe Survivors” and “Kava Nope.” Another read, “Susan Collins: Don’t betray women. Vote No.”
Some protesters may have been encouraged to attend the rally after the Party Majority PAC, a sponsor of the protest, listed the names of numerous supportive celebrities, including Alicia Keys, Eva Longoria, Whoopi Goldberg and Lena Dunham on its flier. Some news stories ahead of the event said they would be there, though none of those listed celebrities showed up.
(Elizabeth) Warren, who has acknowledged she is thinking of running for president in 2020 as a Democrat, was the biggest name to appear. Others who spoke included Linda Sarsour, the pro-Palestinian activist who helped lead the recent Women’s March in Washington.
“I watched that hearing last Thursday, and I believe Dr. Ford,” Warren said, referencing Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford. “I watched that hearing last Thursday, and Brett Kavanaugh is disqualified.”
Warren also took aim at the Republican men on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“I watched 11 men — powerful men — try to help another powerful man make it to another powerful position,” the Democratic senator said. “This is about hijacking our Democracy.”
At one point during the march, protesters referenced the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of misconduct during his 1991 confirmation hearings: “We believe Christine Ford. We believe Anita Hill,” they said.
The protests came the same day senators were able to read the FBI report on its investigation into Ford’s allegations against Kavanaugh.
So, who organized this bunch of female “New Bolsheviks”?
According to mashable.com, the usual suspects organized the “protests”. We’ll get to the funding in a moment.
In a final effort to stop Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the Women’s March and other organizations have announced the Cancel Kavanaugh march, which will take place in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 4. Nationwide demonstrations are also scheduled for the next few days.
Some reports say the FBI’s investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh could wrap up sooner than the end of the week, which means the Senate might vote on his nomination by Friday. But don’t panic because the fight is not over.
Liberal activists believe they have a shot at convincing Republican senators Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Jeff Flake of Arizona, along with Democratic senators Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, to vote no on Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Protestors and sexual assault survivors have confronted some of those senators to discuss their decisions, and Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, said Republicans “will not be intimidated by these people.”
…The march will be hosted by the Women’s March, UltraViolet, CPD Action, Demand Justice, the National Action Network, the ACLU, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and MomsRising.org, according to the “Cancel Kavanaugh: Believe Survivors” event page.
A wave of women, femmes, survivors of all genders, and allies are showing up in DC on Thursday to do whatever it takes to #CancelKavanaugh.

Now, about the money behind the “protestors”. I’ll give you 3 guesses…and the first two don’t count. I mean, you did notice who one of the keynote speakers was, didn’t you?
It was none other that Radical Islamist and champion of Women’s Rights (an oxymoron if there ever was one) Linda Sarsour, an organizer of the Women’s Marches.
Asri Q. Normani of The New York Times reported about those marches that
By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. March organizers and the organizations identified here haven’t yet returned queries for comment.
On the issues I care about as a Muslim, the “Women’s March,” unfortunately, has taken a stand on the side of partisan politics that has obfuscated the issues of Islamic extremism over the eight years of the Obama administration. “Women’s March” partners include the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has not only deflected on issues of Islamic extremism post-9/11, but opposes Muslim reforms that would allow women to be prayer leaders and pray in the front of mosques, without wearing headscarves as symbols of chastity. Partners also include the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which wrongly designated Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformer, an “anti-Muslim extremist” in a biased report released before the election. The SPLC confirmed to me that Soros funded its “anti-Muslim extremists” report targeting Nawaz. (Ironically, CAIR also opposes abortions, but its leader still has a key speaking role.)
Another Soros grantee and march “partner” is the Arab-American Association of New York, whose executive director, Linda Sarsour, is a march co-chair. When I co-wrote a piece, arguing that Muslim women don’t have to wear headscarves as a symbol of “modesty,” she attacked the coauthor and me as “fringe.”
Earlier, at least 33 of the 100 “women of color,” who initially protested the Trump election in street protests, worked at organizations that receive Soros funding, in part for “black-brown” activism. Of course, Soros is an “ideological philanthropist,” whose interests align with many of these groups, but he is also a significant political donor. In Davos, he told reporters that Trump is a “would-be dictator.”
A spokeswoman for Soros’s Open Society Foundations, said in a statement, “There have been many false reports about George Soros and the Open Society Foundations funding protests in the wake of the U.S. presidential elections. There is no truth to these reports.” She added, “We support a wide range of organizations — including those that support women and minorities who have historically been denied equal rights. Many of whom are concerned about what policy changes may lie ahead. We are proud of their work. We of course support the right of all Americans to peaceably assemble and petition their government—a vital, and constitutionally safeguarded, pillar of a functioning democracy.”
Much like post-election protests, which included a sign, “Kill Trump,” were not “spontaneous,” as reported by some media outlets, the “Women’s March” is an extension of strategic identity politics that has so fractured America today, from campuses to communities.
There has been nothing “grassroots ” about the myriad of protests and the obnoxious protestors themselves who have been present and extremely vocal during the Kavanaugh hearings, attempting to interfere with the hearings and to intimidate Republican Senators.
If you believe that they all travelled to Washington on their own money, I have two tickets to a re-boot of the “Rosie O’Donnell Variety Hour” to sell you.
George Soros has been on a mission to finance the “Radical Change” of American Society and government for years.
The election of Donald J. Trump as our 45th President spurred him on to spend even more money and to cause even ore disruption of American Politics, through the use of hatred and intolerance for radical American values and ethics.
George Soros must be deported or jailed.
His disruption of our American Political Process and his intentional fracturing of our society through the use of paid political activists, his own “Brown Shirts”, if you will, must no longer be tolerated.
Too many of our Best and Brightest died on foreign soil fighting to keep fascism from our shores.
This New Fascism which the Far Left Democratic Party is now practicing and which Soros is funding, has no place in our Constitutional Republic.
Until He Comes,
