Soros sponsors violent leftists and anti-police lobby as US crime surges

The mega-speculator and "philanthropist" George Soros remains true to himself – he has been sponsoring anti-police left-wing groups with billions of dollars.

    The conservative US television station Fox News recently gained insight into the tax documents of Soros’ Open Society Foundations, which show the relevant cash transfers. According to this, left-wing extremist groups and anti-police lobbies received a total of 35 million dollars from Soros in 2021 alone – and that in the US alone.

    Soros also supports activities against the government or in favor of open borders in numerous other countries.

    In the US, the Hungarian-born speculator has been supporting organizations that advocate a “reform” of criminal law for years. These are predominantly left-wing extremist groups and candidates for political office.

    The Soros Foundation defended its grants policy and said it was “proud to be among the earliest and strongest supporters of efforts to address the problems of crime and public safety while protecting the freedoms Americans hold dear”.

    Laleh Ispahani, co-director of Open Society-US, told Fox News Digital: “Open Society supports the exploration and development of policies that actually work to reduce crime and defers to communities regarding what alternatives make sense to them”. But crime has exploded in cities where Soros has meddled.

    The FBI in 2020 recorded its highest ever single-year increase in murders. A year later, the 12 US cities that had fully embraced the Soros agenda saw the most murders in their history. The activists are particularly keen on the police being lenient towards drug offenders.

    “Not only has billionaire George Soros spent millions propping up pro-crime prosecutors, but now we’ve learned he’s spent the last year bankrolling efforts to defund the police as well,” Caitlin Sutherland, the executive director of Americans for Public Trust, told Fox News Digital.

    According to Fox News, the Soros Foundation donated a total of $1,75 million in 2021 to the Washington-based New Venture Fund for the Community Resource Hub for Safety and Accountability. This organization has also set itself the goal of comprehensive police reform and advocates the abolition or cancellation of police funds.

    Groups that back defunding police, hubs to dismantle law enforcement, and databases to track donations to police department foundations and unions have been used to actively discourage effective law enforcement.

    “Virtually all the cities with the most notable crime outbreaks — San Francisco, Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles — are places with progressive prosecutors working to limit punishments for looters, organised thieves and the unruly, occasionally violent, homeless. The cities, with the exception of Los Angeles, are also among the whitest in the US, with a large population of educated people,” according to researcher Joel Kotkin.

    Also, the nonprofit Open Society Policy Center, a branch of Soros’ Open Society Network, reportedly made a $500 000 grant to the Equity PAC. PACs are groups that support specific political candidates or parties. For example, the Equity PAC opposes the “hiring of new police officers” in Austin, Texas.

    Soros is also considered an ardent supporter of the left-wing extremist and criminal movement “Black Lives Matter” (BLM), which, among other things, campaigns for discrimination against non-blacks. He also interferes almost chronically in the political affairs of other countries. Years ago, for example, he described the developments in Ukraine that led to the Russian military intervention in February as his “greatest success”.

    In addition to defunding the police, the Movement for Black Lives (a coalition of 50 BLM organizations) has expressed support for cop killers. In 2021, a clemency petition was launched that included Sundiata Acoli, who was convicted of murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster during a 1973 traffic stop.

    Soros defended his prosecutor reform movement, citing a study that he said proves “no connection between the election of reform-minded prosecutors and local crime rates.” He blamed a “rise in mental illness” and “gun trafficking” for the crime spike in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published in August this year.

    But Rafael Mangual, the head of the Manhattan Institute’s Policing and Public Safety Initiative, told the Washington Free Beacon that the study “doesn’t prove decarceration works”.
