The Left’s favorite Wall Street billionaire and a cohort of his radical confederates are promising to contribute as much as $100 million to help the Democratic Party win this November so it can lay the groundwork for the destruction of what’s left of American civil society.
News of the trust fund tidal wave comes after the Soros-funded Democracy Alliance opted to drown Democrats and President Obama’s re-election campaign in an ocean of cash this year. The ultra-secretive group, founded in 2005, is a financial clearinghouse that recommends to its wealthy members projects and groups that aspire to dismantle America as we know it, transforming the nation into a European-style socialist state. The group has directed untold hundreds of millions of dollars to left-of-center causes.
Soros, a currency speculator and convicted inside-trader, is a practiced hand-wringer who frequently tells gullible reporters he is getting out of electoral politics altogether. This is his mantra between elections even though he never actually follows through on the threat.
The preeminent funder of the Left in the United States, Soros openly favors the collapse of the greenback and the decline of America in general. He has said European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now.” He praises Communist China effusively, saying the brutal totalitarian nation has “a better-functioning government than the United States.”
Soros and his billionaire buddies are going to give a king’s ransom to organizations that focus on grassroots organizing, vote manufacturing, and getting welfare recipients and illegal immigrants to the polls so they can vote themselves more taxpayer-funded benefits. The donors plan to take this approach because they are wary of competing directly with pro-Republican “super PACs,” which are independent political action committees without contribution limits. These left-wing fat cats dislike the Supreme Court’s freedom-affirming Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision that opened the door to unlimited campaign expenditures, the New York Times reports.
But the ever pragmatic Democracy Alliance founder Rob Stein acknowledged that “[s]uper PACs are critically important.” The invitation-only club is meeting this week in Florida for one of its regular get-togethers at which members vote on which groups to bankroll.
Left-wingers think that local efforts and outreach to voters using Internet-based social media such as Facebook “can have an enormous impact in battleground states in 2012,” added Stein, a longtime Democratic operative.
Soros is expected to fork over $1 million to America Votes. The organization says it has “built a permanent advocacy and campaign infrastructure that provides coordination, data and targeting services” to “over 300 state and national partner organizations to advance progressive policies, expand access to the ballot, coordinate issue advocacy and election campaigns, and protect every American’s right to vote.”
Soros is also expected to give $1 million to American Bridge 21st Century, a sleazy super PAC that focuses on assassinating the character of Republicans. The political action committee is run by the acutely paranoid, emotionally unstable David Brock, a gossip columnist who founded the hyper-partisan fake media watchdog group, Media Matters for America.
Soros spokesman Michael Vachon did his best to rationalize his boss’s behavior.
