A threat to democracy #1: George Soros.
George Soros, a Hungarian multi-billionaire full of hatred for conservatives. He is the founder, leader, and funder for many leftist organizations and companies, such as Media Matters, Amnesty International, and more than 200 leftist movements. He has repeatedly threatened or demolished the American way of life. He spoke in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum and, unexpectedly, received heavy backlash.
In 1993, Soros started the “Open Society Institute” to diffuse his billions of dollars to progressive causes. While using OPI as a channel, he’s funded more than $7B to Planned Parenthood, Huffington Post, Apollo Alliance, and National Council of La Raza.
He had a major influence on the 2004 U.S presidential election. He once said that removing George W. Bush was the “center focus of my life”. He wasn’t joking. Putting his money where his mouth is, he donated $23.58M to America Coming Together. This was an organization whose goal was defeating Bush for a second term. His funds also helped jumpstart Barack Obama’s Senate campaign for Illinois in 2004 and for his presidential campaign in 2007. ACT was fined $775,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violations of various federal campaign finance laws.
Another organization he contributes to is Moveon.org, a progressive advocacy group and political action committee that raises millions upon millions for liberal candidates and turns its attention to destroy conservatives. Bankrolled by Goldman Sachs, Moveon.org has compared President George W. Bush to Hitler. They claimed that Florida Governor Rick Scott tried to “kick 180,000 people off voter rolls” when it was less than 3,000 and thought Sarah Palin supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan, even though Palin was never in Buchanan’s Brigade.
Led by John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s chief of staff and Hillary’s campaign manager, the Center for American Progress was a key factor for progressive points and policies to increase President Obama’s popularity among American voters. This included a turnstile between the Obama White House and Soros’ think tank, with Obama staffing numerous White House officials with CAP representatives.
A majority of Soros’ money has come from manipulation of global currencies. During the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, he was accused by Malaysian PM Mahathir bin Mohamad of leading the plunge of the Ringgit. In Thailand, he was called an “economic war criminal”. Soros deliberately initiated a British financial crisis by dumping 10 billion pounds, forcing the devaluation of the currency and gaining a billion-dollar profit.
The delusional Hungarian is a primary financial backer of Media Matters for America, a progressive watchdog that becomes maniacal over anything that carries conservative values. Founder David Brock openly declared war on Fox News, telling Politico that Media Matters was opening “guerrilla warfare and sabotage”. They claimed they were going to disrupt Rupert Murdoch’s commercial investment, which is unlikely for a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt educational foundation that is unable to intervene in any political background.
Former Obama green jobs head and CNN analyst Van Jones and his leftist environmental ideas have been funded by Soros’ wealth at these groups: the Ella Baker Center, Green For All, the Center for American Progress, and the Apollo Alliance, which was conducive in getting $110B in green initiatives included in Obama’s stimulus package and the Paris Climate Accord. Soros also funds the Climate Policy Initiative to address global warming and gave Friends of the Earth funds to “integrate a climate equity perspective in the presidential transition.”
Whether you like it or not, George Soros is a threat to not only conservatism, he’s detrimental to liberal principles.
