Soros sent the million dollars via his Color Of Change PAC on May 14, secondo Federal Election Commission files obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
The organization describes itself as “the nation’s largest online racial justice organization” and actively engages in efforts to defund police departments such as spreading an online petition calling for “divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm Black people.”
The group also backed a push by the Milwaukee City Council to defund the police.
“La polizia è un'istituzione violenta che deve finire,” the group’s president wrote in a statement supporting the move. “Immaginiamo un paese dove ci sono abbastanza soldi per educare i nostri figli, prendersi cura dei nostri malati e nutrire coloro che sono finanziariamente instabili. Defunding the police allows for this vision.”
Violent crime has surged dramatically in many large cities across the United States this year, including in areas where Soros has spent large sums of money electing Democratic candidates who have promised to ease sentencing requirements and implement relaxed bail reform laws.
Nel 2018, Soros spent millions of dollars to help elect current Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon who promised to implement sentencing reforms and decriminalize certain illegal activities. Nel 2021, the Los Angeles City Council redirected funds from the LAPD to social outreach organizations.
Filadelfia, where Soros spent quasi $ 2 milioni electing District Attorney Larry Krasner, currently has the highest murder rate per capita among the 10 largest cities in the country and homicides have risen 35% quest'anno.
“When George Soros funded scores of elections for pubblici ministeri who have no intention di prosecuting criminals and every intention of prosecuting police officers, he knew exactly what he was doing,” host of Fox News’ Vita, Liberty and Levin Mark Levin disse about Soros last year. “He was funding a counter-revolution in the U.S.”
