Last week, seventeen members of Congress including multiple members of “The Squad” such as Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-Ny.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Mn.) were arrested in a “civil disobedience” protest at the Supreme Court.
The police treated the protesters with kid gloves, escorting them out of the area without handcuffing them or using physical force.
There was a clear contrast between how police treated them and people who took part in the January 6th “Stop the Steal” protests, including Ashli Babbitt who was killed by a Capitol Police officer.
Omar and Cortez, posturing for social media as usual, pretended like they were handcuffed by police officers.
A new report by Zero Hedge sheds light on the Soros dark money groups that helped organize the protest.
The group, Center for Popular Democracy, has received millions of dollars from Soros’ nonprofit, the Open Society Foundation.

Last week’s arrest of 17 members of Congress during an abortion rights demonstration outside the Supreme Court – which notably included Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) pretending they were in handcuffs – was coordinated with a progressive dark-money group funded by billionaire George Soros.
As the Washington Examiner’s Andrew Kerr reports, “Getting arrested was the whole point of the stunt, Ocasio-Cortez said in an Instagram post on Tuesday. She said organizers of the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) Action Fund asked her and her colleagues to “submit themselves for arrest in front of the Supreme Court.””
CPD Action co-executive director, Andrew Friedman, told the Washington Post in 2018 that they, and their sister organization, Center for Popular Democracy – which coordinated with the lawmakers, had received over $1 million per year from Soros Open Society Foundations.
CPD Action posted on Facebook Tuesday, saying that its leaders were among the 18 non-lawmakers who were arrested.
