Notorious anti-American Marxist Lisa Fithian, paid teach activists, spotted among Columbia rioters

When Columbia Hamilton Hall was sieged by Marxists last week, there were two strange faces in the crowd directing and instructing the rest of the anarchists. Lisa Fithian and that Khymani James dude? Wow. All the progressive groups like Sunrise and the Green New Deal network signed on to the movement letter have interesting allies.

When asked about her presence at the protest, Fithian denied being an organizer, telling the Boston Globe that she was being smeared by the right. 

'They love to hate me,' the activist said, adding that she was on campus on Monday conducting a 'training session on safety and logistics of a protest.'

The Austin, Texas, resident claimed she was invited 'informally' by someone whose name 'she did not catch.'

Despite Fithian's claim that reports about her are coming from the right, it was Democratic New York City mayor Eric Adams who this week referred to her as a 'professional outside agitator.


Adams called Fithian 'the nation's best-known protest consultant', noting she gets paid as much as $300 a day to run demonstrations and teach how to take over streets during protests. 

'They are not here to promote peace or unity or allow a peaceful displaying of one’s voice,' Adams said. 'They are here to create discord and divisiveness.'

According to records reviewed by The Post, a left-wing dark money network has funneled over $10 million to anti-Israel causes over the past five years. This is happening as the Jewish state faces calls for its destruction during its war against Hamas terrorists, and as demonstrations against Israel continue across the US.

Washington, DC-based Arabella Advisors contributes to an array of progressive nonprofits through its New Venture Fund, Hopewell Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, North Fund, and Windward Fund, which have given a combined $10,833,396 to anti-Israel groups since 2018.

Anti-Israel protests

Certain non-profit organizations have provided support to extremist Palestinian activist groups that have been associated with terrorism and have campaigned against the United States backing of Israel, particularly after the Oct. 7 terror attack by Hamas militants, which claimed the lives of over 1,400 individuals, including at least 33 Americans.

The largest share went to NEO Philanthropy, which collected $5,161,465 

from four of the five funds since 2018 and runs a project founded by antisemitic activist Linda Sarsour.

MPower Change, Sarsour’s project, spread misinformation about casualties from a missile that struck a hospital in Gaza. Contrary to their claims, US intelligence and the Israeli military confirmed that terrorists fired the rocket.

The group also promoted a Democratic Socialists of America-led rally in New York City this month, where protesters displayed antisemitic signs including a Nazi swastika.

The Iranian Revolution also known as the Islamic Revolution was a series of events that culminated in the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty in 1979.

Antisemitism controversy at Columbia University: Key events

  • More than 280 anti-Israel demonstrators were cuffed at Columbia and the City of New York campuses overnight in a “massive” NYPD operation.
  • One hundred and nine people were nabbed at the Ivy League campus after cops responded to Columbia’s request to help oust a destructive mob that had illegally taken over the Hamilton Hall academic building late Tuesday, NYC Mayor Eric Adams and police said.
  • Hizzoner blamed the on-campus chaos on insurgents who have a “history of escalating situations and trying to create chaos” instead of protesting peacefully.
  • Columbia’s embattled president Minouche Shafik, who has faced mounting calls to resign for not cracking down sooner, issued a statement Wednesday saying the on-campus violence had “pushed the university to the brink.”
  • Columbia University president Minouche Shafik was accused of “gross negligence” while testifying before Congress. Shafik refused to say if the phrase “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” is antisemitic.
  • More than 100 Columbia professors signed a letter defending students who support the “military action” by Hamas.

The majority of people who participate in movements, such as Black Lives Matter or the conflict between Israel and Palestine, are typically well-intentioned. However, some individuals exploit these movements for their own gain. While not always done with malicious intent, there are people who make a living by taking advantage of protests.

Jewish Voice for Peace is more like Jihad Violence and Propaganda.
In the realm of Middle Eastern politics, a group called Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has been generating significant attention. This organization has been creating controversy with its stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and disruptive demonstrations that have blocked bridges, travel hubs, monuments, and even Christmas tree-lighting events.
