Billionaire Democratic donor George Soros has pledged to donate $10 million from his personal foundation to combat a rise in hate crimes linked to what he calls President-elect Donald Trump’s “incendiary rhetoric,” the Hill reports.
Soros, a business magnate, said in an interview with the New York Timesthat he was “deeply troubled” by the rise in hate crimes since the election, including Nazi swastikas and other graffiti spray-painted in public places.
Soros told the newspaper that “dark forces … have been awakened” by the election and that “we must do something to push back against what’s happening here.”
Soros said his donation was not about the President-elect himself, but about holding Trump and his rhetoric partially responsible for the rise in hate crimes in recent weeks.
“Certainly it got inflamed as a result of the campaign, and it broke out really afterwards,” he said.
According to the NYT, the $10 million donation will go towards civil rights organizations so they can come up with ways to stop the rise of violence.
Part of the money will also go towards developing ways to better track hate crimes.
Trump has condemned the rise in hate crimes following his election, saying he is “saddened” by the reports.
Soros has also reportedly wanted to start a liberal-leaning version of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, but there is no word on what the organization’s name will be or any other details on the organization yet, the Daily Caller reported.
Soros is no stranger to Nazi’s in his lifetime, some he is a “Holocaust Survivor” but some, say he made his wealth through his Nazi connects.
Orban, the first European leader to publicly back Trump’s campaign, has ignored criticism from the European Commission and U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration for building a self-described “illiberal state” modeled on authoritarian regimes including Russia,
Soros has been responsible for starting 90℅ of the hate crimes paying organizations to go and start the violence and protest. His money comes from Nazi connects to begin with. Who is he fooling.
Soros is notorious for funding provacateurs. Looks like he’ll be following the centuries – old plan to ‘fund both sides of the war’, seeking to control outcomes while pretending to ‘help.’ Do us all a favor Soros and stop trying to ‘help’ us like you helped the Jews in Nazi Germany. Soros should be arrested for inciting all of the violent riots he funded. He hates the US! Trump should throw him out of the US like Putin did in Russia!
