If you paid federal taxes after 1997, some of your money went to Tides, a San Francisco-based clearinghouse that collects and distributes about $251 million every year to hundreds of leftwing organizations.
Much of the money flowing into Tides comes from wealthy benefactors who use Tides as a clearinghouse — a way to help finance left-liberal organizations without leaving any fingerprints.
But since 1997, the U.S. government has joined in, making $79 million in grants to the non-profit. In the same period, Tides has funded such groups as the radical PRF and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization whose leaders were convicted of funneling money to the terrorist group Hamas.
Tides also gives money to groups you likely know and may even support such as Planned Parenthood and the ACLU…
…Other groups tied to PRF include the Marxist Workers World Party and its youth outreach arms, the Revolutionary Socialist Youth and Fight Imperialism Stand Together (FIST). PRF also houses Occupy for Jobs, which fights for guaranteed jobs and income, and Bailout People, an organization seeking to end home foreclosures.
