George Soros is a well-known billionaire and philanthropist has been very vocal about his opposition to the GOP. Every time Republican Party tries to implement policy change George Soros is right there to stop it either by large donations to the opposition or using one of his many nonprofits to sway the people’s opinions against conservative right.
George Soros has openly declared war on the GOP and this hostility toward them has earned him the coveted name of the bogeyman of the right. They have named him this because he embodies everything the right hates. Soros believes in equality, free sexual expression, immigration rights, and civil rights for all. These beliefs in promoting human rights have angered and terrified the Republicans. What terrifies the right is not that George Soros disagrees with them, it is that he has the money and the global connections necessary to put up road blocks at every turn.
George Soros has this kind of worldwide influence due to his nonprofit the Open Society Foundations. The Open Society Foundations has made it their mission to support young democracies around the world so that they can continue to represent the people and be accountable to the electorate. George Soros and his nonprofit have helped nearly 100 countries establish democracies even in the midst of upheaval and civil unrest.
George Soros has not only helped countries abroad but also right here at home. George Soros is passionate about promoting leftist ideals in the United States of America. This has led him to back many Democratic candidates in their bid for the House, Senate, and the presidency.
In 2004 George Soros supported his favorite candidate John Kerry in his bid to win the White House. During that time, John Kerry was up against the incumbent President George W. Bush. George Soros desperately wanted John Kerry to win sets John Kerry promised he would bring us out of the two wars were facing in the Middle East. Unfortunately, John Kerry would lose the election. The reality is that though Kerry lost, the Democrats were able to sway the public opinion against the wars in the Middle East, and thus, gain support for the left for the next election.
In 2008 the Democrats would win the election countrywide by a landslide. It all began with a meteoric rise of Barack Obama the Senator of Illinois. As he won the heart of the American people, George Soros saw that Barack Obama would be the greatest instrument of liberal change the world had ever seen. This proved to be true as Barack Obama secured women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and immigration rights on a large scale.
In 2016 Hillary Clinton would face Donald Trump in a war for the presidency. George Soros would try to tip the scales in Hillary Clinton’s favor by giving to her and the Democratic national party $25 million. Though she lost the nomination, George Soros has won the war as America is currently disapproving of Trump’s presidency.
