Wealthy individuals like Bill Gates and George Soros are common allies of the left. They frequently contribute mass amounts of money to liberal causes, and speak out against Conservative ideals.
Many citizens have condemned Soros for some questionable big-dollar donations in the past, for example. And he remains a big advocate for numerous Democrat policies and laws.
But he might’ve gone a step too far here.
As crime surges in many cities around the nation, right-wing politicians and citizens alike are pushing back against calls to “defund the police.” That has only resulted in more problems, they claim.
“Defund the police” gained steam in 2020 in the wake of numerous protesting, and several high-profile Democrats supported the idea.
While many say they simply want to reroute federal and state funding – from law enforcement to “community-oriented” projects – others are more extreme.
In fact, some appear to have called for the complete disintegration of police forces.
And now, we find that Soros contributed $1 million to a group that might be on the very extreme end of this issue (via The Blaze):
Left-wing billionaire George Soros funneled $1 million to a political action committee that supports the defund the police movement despite violent crime surging across the nation.
Soros sent $1 million to the Color Of Change PAC, according to Federal Election Commission files obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Soros has tossed a lot of money around in recent years, and he never donates a small amount. But he’s going to take heat for giving $1M to a PAC that seems to support the abolishing of police.
Color of Change has expressed seemingly radical views on the subject.
Notably, this PAC is led by Rashad Robinson, who made the following controversial statement:
Policing is a violent institution that must end.
We imagine a country where there is enough money to educate our children, care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable.
Defunding the police allows for this vision.
Robinson also supported the Minneapolis City Council’s idea to completely disband the city’s police department. Minneapolis later decided against it, especially after crime surged.
And Color of Change also railed against the NYPD, and called on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to “immediately reduce the NYPD’s budget by $1 billion.”
At the same time, NYC suffered through a huge spike in violent crime: shooting incidents are up nearly 22 percent, for instance.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Soros has handed out a lot of cash to highly controversial far-left organizations or individuals:
He donated $2 million to the campaign of L.A. District Attorney George Gascón, who had pledged to ditch cash bail, refuse to push for more prosecution for gangs and guns, etc.
Soros and fellow rich leftist Michael Bloomberg also supposedly funneled $300,000 into the Georgia runoff elections to help Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win their races.
To many Americans, Soros’ endless support of these people and groups is extremely dangerous.
Individuals with immense wealth and power can have a dramatic impact on the country. And when they only support one side – and that side is getting more extreme with every passing day – we’ve got a problem.
Many rail against social media bosses for the same reasons. They have colossal power and they only appear to wield it for the left.
And as far as many Americans are concerned, people like George Soros are only making everything worse.
- Billionaire George Soros reportedly funneled $1M to a PAC that supports defunding the police.
- The PAC’s President called policing “a violent institution that must end.”
- It’s another in a long string of donations Soros has made to far-left individuals and groups.
