Right Wing Extremists Are Demonizing George Soros for His Philanthropy

George Soros is the busiest person on the planet, according to right wing extremists. According to people who love right wing conspiracy theories, George Soros has been hard at work pulling the strings of various organizations and marches. They blame him for a lot of things. They blame him for the Women’s March and for Black Lives Matter. They blame him for the white nationalist rally in North Carolina, wildly accusing him of setting it up in order to make people think that there are more white nationalists than there really are so that more people will support the Black Lives Matter movement. The reason people hate George Soros is that he stands by his principles and continues to donate money to the causes that he sees just. Ever since George Soros decided that he will give away billions of dollars to help the world advance, people have been demonizing him for no reason at all. Many people on the right hate him, because he has been supporting various candidates on the Democratic side of the aisle. In fact, he donated twenty seven million dollars to help the effort to stop President Bush from getting reelected, because he thought that President Bush would have a detrimental effect on the country.

The truth is that people on the right hate him because of his philanthropic donations, not just his political support for Democratic candidates. George Soros has been donating money to various causes that are pro-democracy and which promote freedom in the United States and around the world. Some of these causes are opposed by people on the right, especially by right-wing extremists. He is giving more money now than ever. In fact, he just donated 18 billion dollars to the Open Society Foundations. He will donate billions more in the years to come. People on the right wing side are getting very scared. Perhaps they do not want to see our freedom to bloom. That is sad. Breitbart, an extreme right-wing news site, realizing that the Open Society Foundations are now the second largest charitable network in the world, has called the Open Society Foundations the death star.

According to the Atlantic, this characterization, that of George Soros as the ultimate boogie man, is a result of the vast political division in our country. People on both sides of the aisle regard people on the other side as suspicious, especially if they are so called Elites, in which case they start blaming those few individuals for everything that they think is going wrong. It is a terrible path to go down, because it only leads to more division in the country. It will make it harder for people to work together.

It is important for us to unite behind people like Soros who donate money to philanthropy and support them in their efforts. George, who was born in Hungary, has donated billions of dollars in his lifetime to various charitable organizations.

Fighting To Let People Be Heard

Everybody knows that it is illegal for foreign companies and other actors on business or political stage to try gaining influence in any election. However, in 2016 the system failed because several companies associated with Kremlin bought advertising space to have this kind of control using the information to make people cast a favorable vote.

Finding The Truth
Robert Mueller, now named Special Counsel, is hard at work trying to unravel the kind of involvement Russian government or businesses had if any. There is no doubt that he won’t stop till the truth comes out, and people can once again have a piece of mind. However, this inquiry also makes people ask a lot of questions about the ways Washington works these days since people cannot be sure how other elections can be impacted by foreign money.

End Citizens United, a PAC, wants to make people realize how much money rich people pay to have a say in law-making. It is now more critical than ever to keep people informed about the donations to campaigns coming from a handful of people with bottomless pockets. This kind of influence beats the purpose of an election because politicians are not working for the voter but those with the most significant donation.

It is now clear that Russian troll farm bought Facebook advertising space for about hundred thousand dollars, but that did not end the activity. There are hundreds of fake accounts on Twitter, spreading false information but law enforcement is not doing enough to stop it at the moment.

There are ways to find loopholes in the law, but there are also ways to close them down. However, the government at this point does not seem to be interested in any action. Foreign states should not be able to have a say in any election, but their own and Congress needs to take a firm stand against these practices.

The Voice Of People
End Citizens United wants to educate and inform people about the lack of transparency in Washington. Money and politics go hand in hand but not is more important to separate big money from politics. Political activity was on the rise again since the election last year. People want to have their voices heard, and ECU is one of the organizations that work to make it happen.

Since they work under strict rules about donors, this PAC cannot accept a donation larger than five thousand dollars, but their activity and openness already helped to raise a large sum of money to support Democratic candidates on campaigns.

Most donations are small, but they keep coming in because people now understand that otherwise they will be forgotten by the people in Washington DC and it has to change soon before it is too late to change anything.
