George Soros’ self-proclaimed “‘more political’” heir to his radical empire has his own track record of political activism that reeks of a potentially worse Soros sequel.
The Wall Street Journal released its latest interview with the recently crowned Open Society Foundations Chairman Alexander Soros headlined: “George Soros Hands Control to His 37-Year-Old Son: ‘I’m More Political.’”
According to The Journal’s summary, Alexander is focused on “broadening his father’s liberal aims—‘We think alike,’ the elder Soros said—while embracing some different causes. Those include voting and abortion rights, as well as gender equity.” In addition, “[Alexander] plans to continue using the family’s deep pockets to back left-leaning U.S. politicians.”
If Alexander's mission is to generate a steroids-injected version of his father’s multibillion-dollar agenda defined by anti-Americanism, Marxist economics, climate change extremism, abortion-on-demand and racial strife, then America is in for a scary ride.
“George Soros wouldn’t have made this move if he didn’t believe Alexander wasn’t just as radical and committed as to making the distorted open society worldview a reality as he is,” said MRC Free Speech America & MRC Business Vice President Dan Schneider. “Soros has finally crowned his heir, and Americans should be wary of the enormous left-wing political power that has been dumped into Alexander’s lap.”
It’s not like Alexander has been an innocent observer on the sidelines waiting for his opportunity to make his mark. His leftist bona fides have already been established. His foundation, the Alexander Soros Foundation, has given bulky sums of cash to a litany of leftist causes. His foundation gave at least $1,350,000 to the Big Tech censorship-advocating group Global Witness, according to the group’s 2015, 2016 and 2017 990 tax forms. Alexander’s group is also listed as a donor in Global Witness’s 2020 annual “climate revolution” report.
Global Witness placed heavy pressure on Big Tech platforms like Facebook and TikTok to up the ante on censoring so-called election “disinformation” prior to the 2022 midterm elections. Global Witness issued a press release headlined “Facebook and TikTok fail to block deceptive ads with blatant US midterms disinformation,” claiming its “experiment” was engineered to “determine how well social media platforms are living up to their promises to stop disinformation that can destabilise democratic processes,” on October 21, 2022.
The Open Society Foundations itself — of which Alexander has served in a leadership capacity for years — gave a whopping $17,657,000 to Global Witness between 2016 and 2020. This directly contradicts The Journal’s reporting that “Alex believes that speech on college campuses and elsewhere has become too restricted.”
Alexander is also the “founding chair” of the radical group Bend the Arc: Jewish Action, which is a project that denigrates the Republican Party as supposedly being plagued by white supremacy and anti-Semitism. “By setting the stage for white nationalist violence, Trump and the Republican Party represent the greatest threat to Jews in this country,” an individual claimed in a Bend the Arc “WE RISE AS ONE” 2020 campaign video.
Attacking former President Donald Trump and the GOP fits directly with Alexander Soros’ brand. After all, he tweeted in 2022 that “the end of democracy and civil war are real possibilities,” if Trump ends up being reelected to the White House again.
What will happen to America if Trump wins again? Here is a reminder that the end of US democracy and civil war are real possibilities! https://t.co/icrcSDjAFS— Alex Soros (@AlexanderSoros) October 11, 2022
Another description for Bend the Arc can be found on its How to Fight Antisemitism project, which was laced with racially charged, anti-Trump, anti-Republican Party propaganda:
Far-right extremists who have taken over the GOP rely on fear and division to maintain power. They use antisemitism to fuel that fear and division, putting Jews and our neighbors in danger. The danger is real: Donald Trump’s presidency coincided with an uptick in hate crimes and violence, including the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history.
It isn’t just Trump. As 61% of American Jews know, antisemitism is a problem in the Republican Party. To fight it, we have to understand how antisemitism — along with racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia — is part of the machinery of division and fear, and learn to recognize when right-wing extremists use that machine for political and material gain.
George may have expressed his vision to bend “the arc of history” in the so-called “right direction” in 2019. But it is Alexander who’s being tapped to finally bring his father’s utopian nightmare into reality.
