George Soros is a billionaire philanthropist who has made it his life mission to push the ideals of the left throughout America and the whole world. This passion of his, as well as his immense net worth, has made him a constant enemy of the Republican Party. In fact, he has even gained the nickname the “bogeyman of the right.”
George Soros largely makes his impact on the world through his own nonprofit, the Open Society Foundations. It is the call of Open Society Foundations to instill democracy throughout the entire world starting here at home and then going abroad. The Open Society Foundations helps fledgling democracies by bankrolling them, educating the leaders how to run political campaigns, and ensuring that the political leaders stay accountable to the people who elected them.
George Soros has largely been active here in the United States through the Open Society Foundations. This activity can be mainly seen in the area of politics, especially in presidential elections.
In 2004, George Soros saw that it was vital to back the Democratic candidate for president, John Kerry. George Soros was not in favor of the two wars that President George W. Bush brought us into. He also saw President George W. Bush as far too conservative and constraining the economy. George Soros desperately wanted John Kerry to win the election. In an effort to boost John Kerry’s chances, George Soros donated, through the Open Society Foundations, $27 million to his campaign Unfortunately for Soros, John Kerry would lose the election and George W. Bush would serve another term.
George Soros would attempt yet again in 2008 to turn the outcome of the election. This time George Soros backed the Illinois Senator Barack Obama. It seems that Barack Obama had a way of speaking directly into the hearts of the people in such a way as to gain their trust and push them forward toward a liberal agenda. George Soros thought that Barack Obama would be the greatest chance to see the left’s agenda promoted in the United States of America. Barack Obama will go on to win two terms in the White House.
In 2016, George Soros was hoping to continue his lucky streak. He decided to back Hillary Rodham Clinton so that she could become the first female president of the United States of America. The backing of George Soros intensified when it seemed that Hillary Rodham Clinton’s opponent would be Donald Trump. George Soros gave the Democratic Party $25 million sensory Clinton informed him it was nearly bankrupt.
Though Hillary Clinton would go on to lose the election, George Soros would take the fight to Donald Trump on the ground. George Soros uses the Open Society Foundations to bankroll other left movements such as black lives matter, MoveOn.org, Planned Parenthood votes, as well as various fact-checking super PACs.
He is most known for organizing the woman’s rights protest march that occurred just the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
