Writing in the Huffington Post, a senior fellow 
at a George Soros-funded radical think tank with 
close ties to the Democratic Party seemingly 
threatened the Discover The Networks website.

<http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/>Discover The 
Networks, launched by former radical turned 
conservative David Horowitz, is a central 
database that maps out left-wing agendas, activists and causes.

“I’ve got friends, too – and they’ve got friends, 
and they’ve got friends, and they’ve got friends 

 enough to cause a computer meltdown at Discover 
The Networks,” 
Richard Eskow, senior fellow at Campaign for America’s Future, or CAF.

The veiled threat was issued in a 
Post blog piece responding to a 
article reporting how the CAF had launched a new 
website urging politicians and activists to wage class warfare.

The new website, WageClassWar.org, also hailed 
what CAF called a new era in politics – the use 
of class warfare to win elections.

The WND article quoted from Discover The Networks 
about the ties of the Eskow’s CAF to so-called 
progressive Democrat politicians.

In his Huffington Post piece, Eskow also attacked 
WND as a “leading source for those tinfoil-hat 
‘birther’ theories about President Obama.”

Democrat operatives launch class-warfare website

WageClassWar.org was launched two weeks ago by the CAF.

CAF’s co-director, Robert Borosage, explained the need for such a website.

“America’s growing diversity and its increasingly 
socially liberal attitudes played a big role in 
this election. But looking back, we are likely to 
see this as the first of the class warfare 
elections of our new Gilded Age of extreme 
inequality,” he wrote in a statement.

“More and more of our elections going forward 
will feature class warfare – only this time with 
the middle class fighting back. And candidates 
are going to have to be clear about which side they are on,” he wrote.

Continued Borosage: “In 2012, candidates who 
supported the economic interests of the many over 
the few won their elections. Populism was the 
voice, but economic opportunity was the message. 
The pundits may wring their hands, but in the 
future it won’t be values voters, angry white men 
or soccer moms that win elections. It will be class war.”

The website does not feature a mission statement 
and is unclear about exactly how the group will 
go about attempting to wage class warfare.

The site explains how Obama’s 2012 campaign 
utilized class warfare and set the stage for the 
deployment of such tactics in future elections.

“Obama’s campaign built its message on class war 
battles that broke out in the Republican primary, 
as challengers sought to bring down ‘the main 
from Bain,’ Mitt Romney,” notes the site.

“In the end, the keys to Obama’s reelection were 
his calls for raising the taxes of the wealthy 
and his support for reinvesting those revenues in 
education and jobs to rebuild the middle class 
and to protect programs like Medicare from cuts.”

The site hails how Obama repeatedly portrayed 
Romney as a “walking example of the out-of-touch 
elite, an opponent of the auto industry bailout 
that saved an entire manufacturing sector, and a 
1 percenter who would jeopardize social programs, 
education, and Medicare in order to cut taxes on his rich friends.”

CAF writes that Obama’s reelection now sets the 
stage “for class warfare as a potent and 
necessary tool to promote rebuilding the economy 
from the bottom up, rather than perpetuate the 
right wing’s failed trickle-down policies.”

Occupy, Soros, Democratic Party

previously reported how CAF has partnered with Occupy.

CAF is funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute as 
well as by the Soros-funded Tides Center, which 
channels funding to hundreds of progressive and far-left groups.

Tides has been connected to the Occupy movement since its beginning.

Another grantee of Tides is Adbusters magazine, 
which is reported to have come up with the Occupy 
Wall Street idea after “Arab Spring” protests 
toppled governments in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. 
The Adbusters website serves as a central hub for Occupy’s planning.

MoveOn.org, which has joined Occupy, is funded by 
Tides. CAF’s board of directors includes MoveOn.org President Eli Pariser.

CAF’s co-founder and director Roger Hickey, who 
also co-founded the Soros-funded Economic Policy 
Institute, was reportedly 
involved in crafting the foundations for President Obama’s health-care law.

CAF campaigns for universal health care, 
immigration reform and progressive education initiatives.

CAF is deeply tied to progressive politicians 
from the Democratic Party, many of whom routinely are featured at CAF events.

Just last year, Nancy Pelosi was the featured 
speaker at CAF’s “America’s Future Now” conference in Washington, D.C.

In 2008, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., was honored 
at CAF’s annual dinner for her “advocacy in 
Congress,” noted Discover the Networks.
