The Koch-funded Reason Magazine published an article on Tuesday claiming that it is not necessary for ANTIFA’s funding to be investigated at the federal level.
Reason writer Robby Soave wrote his pro-ANTIFA article after a mob of domestic terrorists attacked Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his wife outside of the Republican National Convention last week. After the attack, Paul and others called for ANTIFA’s funding to be investigated at the federal level.
“My question is: Who are these people? Who paid for their hotel rooms? Who flew them in? Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this,” Paul explained.
“And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction. The American people are starting to catch on and grow tired of it,” he added.
Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) also demanded for the interests funding these domestic terrorists to finally be held accountable.

Soave argued that it is not the job of the feds to protect the homeland from domestic terrorists such as ANTIFA because limited government, or something. He said that “the notion that the violent protests cropping up in U.S. cities are funded by a secret, shadowy cabal is a myth.”
“People engaged in militant, far-left activism may travel from city to city, and they may be loosely connected with other activists in a semi-organized fashion, but they probably aren’t sitting on some secret pile of money,” Soave wrote.
However, progressive billionaire George Soros pledged this summer to donate $220 million to causes affiliated with Black Lives Matter. Soros’ main front, the Open Society Network, has fomented the riots and terrorism at every turn. They make it clear with their rhetoric that this is a Soros-backed operation.
“It is inspiring and powerful to experience this transformational moment in the racial justice movement,” said Open Society Foundations’ President Patrick Gaspard. “We are honored to be able to carry on the vital work of fighting for rights, dignity, and equity for oppressed people the world over started by our founder and chair, George Soros.”
“We recognize that the struggle to dismantle systemic racism is an ongoing one; it has existed from the dawn of the republic to the present day, and is embedded in every level of government and in our penal and justice systems. But the power-surge of people who have taken to the streets to demand that this nation do better—people of all ages, from all backgrounds, and in every corner of this country—gives hope to us all,” he added.
However, Soave denies the facts in order to continue his bogus narrative that ANTIFA rioters are just a ragtag group of activists.
“When public order breaks down, some subset of the population will rob stores, smash windows, and set buildings on fire. Others flock to protest in hot zones because they like the fight. These are the maladjusted, not paid foot soldiers in some wealthy villain’s war,” Soave wrote.
Big League Politics has reported on Soave’s gatekeeping in the past as the Koch operative works to enforce the bounds of acceptable thought on behalf of his masters:
The establishment-right’s version of the fake news media is in full damage control over the grassroots revolt against Conservative Inc., and Reason Magazine – the Koch-funded globalist anti-Trump propaganda rag – is assisting their efforts.
Reason associate editor Robby Soave falsely reported what took place at Sunday afternoon event on the UCLA campus featuring Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA (TPUSA), Donald Trump Jr., and his girlfriend Kim Guilfoyle in his article commending Conservative Inc. for its crackdown on grassroots dissent.
Soave falsely blamed the “America First” patriots for the shuttering of the event, calling them an “ideological group of hateful silencers” for “forcing Trump to cut short the Q&A period.”
In actuality, the Q&A session was cancelled before the event officially started, as Kirk hoped to avoid an actual discussion after being humiliated during several recent campus appearances. Neocon commentator Ben Shapiro, on the other hand, featured only hand-picked questions in order to control debate as an event last week at Stanford University.
Video from the audience shows the crowd turning on the event immediately after it was announced beforehand that there would be no Q&A session…
Soave conveniently omitted the truth of what happened from his article in order to slime “America First” patriots and make his disingenuous point that it is “great to see conservatives denouncing this racist, anti-gay, white identitarian nonsense.”
“When the right inveighs against progressive censorship and intolerance, it really needs to stress that this is a serious problem on its radical flank as well,” Soave wrote.
“Far-Right Trolls Sabotage Event might not generate as many clicks in the conservative media environment as Triggered Left Wants to Silence You, but it is no less important to say,” he concluded.
Koch apparatchiks like Soave are carrying water for groups like ANTIFA and BLM because they are the shock troops for globalism. ANTIFA would never stand in the way of the importation of third-world labor into the U.S. that the Koch network wants to maximize their profits.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
