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.
Networks, launched by former radical turned
conservative David Horowitz, is a central
database that maps out left-wing agendas, activists and causes.
Ive got friends, too and theyve got friends,
and theyve got friends, and theyve got friends
enough to cause a computer meltdown at Discover
Richard Eskow, senior fellow at Campaign for Americas 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 Eskows 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.
CAFs co-director, Robert Borosage, explained the need for such a website.
Americas 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 wont 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 Obamas 2012 campaign
utilized class warfare and set the stage for the
deployment of such tactics in future elections.
Obamas 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 Obamas 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 Obamas 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 wings 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 Occupys planning.
MoveOn.org, which has joined Occupy, is funded by
Tides. CAFs board of directors includes MoveOn.org President Eli Pariser.
CAFs 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 Obamas 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 CAFs Americas Future Now conference in Washington, D.C.
In 2008, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., was honored
at CAFs annual dinner for her advocacy in
Congress, noted Discover the Networks.
