All the new tents that suddenly popped up around Austin City Hall as a protest to the passage of Prop B seemed strange. Unfortunately for Austin, the reality is worse than you thought. It turns out that many of these activist groups, such as Homes Not Handcuffs have gone as far as astroturfing the area with their own to create a stunt to make the homeless situation in Austin look worse than it could possibly ever be. If you thought posing as homeless people to try to further their goals was beneath the individuals behind the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), you were wrong. Seemingly, that compassion for “neighbors experiencing homelessness” goes out the door when they feel the need to express their rage with these street tantrum antics.
These Soros-backed activists funded by Act Blue believe that “In an era when the most vehement proponents of big government happen to be the most politically active billionaires, it is not surprising that the Democracy Alliance, a collaborative of liberal donors led by George Soros and Peter B.

The radical activist mob in Austin are being paid to act like they are “neighbors experiencing homelessness”. They are diverting resources away from the most vulnerable people who are actually homeless and need the help and compassion to further their political feud. While free speech is fully protected and the right to protest is supported by all, does this stunt cross the line and hurt the people they claim they are standing up for? Are there not better ways to help the situation than resorting to becoming part of the problem? Austin is a resourceful city, surely there are better ways for these groups to get attention.
If you were wondering who is buying these brand new tents, here is one of them. This person has ties to Antifa and is your standard DSA activist trying to destroy the fabric of Austin.
