Soros, Donors Meet in DC to Address 'Cataclysm of Election Day'

November 15th, 2016 2:09 PM

Liberals who worked so hard to elect Hillary Clinton, unsurprisingly view Trump’s victory as a “cataclysm.”

The Democracy Alliance, a club of liberal donors and activists, chose to meet in Washington, D.C. to address the “terrifying assault” President Donald Trump could have on its “progressive vision.”

Politico reported the schedule of events for the Nov. 13-16, Democracy Alliance conference. The list read like a Who’s Who of George Soros connections. Soros himself, who spent at least $25 million supporting Clinton’s failed presidential bid, will speak the last day of the conference. Soros also gave at least $118,901,567 between 2000 and 2014 to groups sponsoring or leading parts of the conference. 

Green for All founder Van Jones, who called Trump’s victory a “white lash,” lectured attendees on Monday about “what we need to do to go forward.” The three day conference also includes sessions on “How did the media fail us?,” “Playing Progressive Offence in 2017-2018,” “Toward Becoming a Progressive, Not Just Blue State,” “Building a Progressive California,” and “Combatting the Massive Threats from Trump and Congress in 2017.”

Conference speakers also included Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden, Center for Community Change President Deepak Bhargava (a board member at Soros’ Open Society Foundations), and far-left Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

Organizations presenting at the conference included 350 Action, the political lobbying arm of Bill McKibben’s climate alarmist group, (responsible for many anti-Trump protests), and NextGen Climate, Tom Steyer’s PAC which tried to make climate change an issue in the presidential election.
