5 Lesser Known But Equally Insidious Recipients of George Soros’ Money
Posted on November 21 2010 9:00 am
Much has been said lately about George Soros. Glenn Beck has made Soros a near constant topic of conversation on his radio program, and Beck did a multi-part exposéof Soros on his television show just this past week. With his recent injection of cash into Media Matters for America, Soros managed to keep himself in the headlines.
It’s worth digging in and learning more about George Soros. After all, he’s the man whose father changed the family surname from Schwartz to Soros to hide their Jewish heritage and thus avoid the Nazis. Soros bankrolled Czechoslovakia’s “Velvet Revolution” and claims to have aided in regime change in Georgia, Croatia, and Yugoslavia. He engineered the financial speculation that, in 1992, “broke the Bank of England,” earning a cool billion dollars for himself in the process. And he’s the man who is worth an approximate $13 billion and uses staggering amounts of that money on radical Leftist causes and organizations. His story has all the makings of a terrific movie (at the very least he’d be a great James Bond villain), if it weren’t for the fact that his latest antics are happening right here in the United States.
We know Soros as the sugar daddy behind such organizations as the Center for American Progress, Media Matters, the late Air America Radio, Think Progress, People for the American Way, and Sojourners. We know him as the architect of the “Shadow Democratic Party,” the sort of man-behind-the-curtain organization of the Democrats today and responsible in many ways for Barack Obama’s election. Soros’ Open Society Institute is the gateway to funding for these and many other Leftist organizations.
While there are plenty of groups and funds who are recipients of Soros’ money that are commonly known, there are even more that are not talked about often, but are equally insidious. Many of these groups sound benign on the surface, and they hide their radical agendas behind a patina of respectability. The following is a list of five organizations who are lesser known as recipients of George Soros’ funding. You may have heard of some of these groups (I know you’ll have heard of at least one), and you may be surprised at the vast reach of Soros’ financial influence.
