You wouldn’t comprehend it until you regarded below just a few rocks, however money from liberal billionaire George Soros may be very a lot concerned within the “defund the police” motion.
Simply don’t count on Politico to be too forthcoming about it in its skewed reporting.
In one among its newest bits of left-wing propaganda, Politico pushed a disgusting story headlined “New racial justice target: Defund the police foundations.” Justice? The sub-headline was simply as dangerous: “Racial justice advocates are calling on companies to sever their relationships with police foundations.” The “advocates” are from the unconventional left-wing group Colour of Change, which is funded by Soros, together with different organizations straight affiliated with the group. Politico, in fact, by no means talked about something in regards to the group being related to Soros.
The outlet lauded Colour of Change as having “an extended file of difficult company America for practices that it sees as perpetuating racism within the U.S.”
The truth is, Soros teams have given tens of millions collectively between Colour of Change and its affiliated organizations over time.
Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) gave not less than $350,000 to the group in 2018 alone. In 2016, The Washington Occasions reported that Soros had given the group $500,000. Extra just lately, Soros’s Democracy PAC gave the group’s PAC, Colour of Change PAC, $1,750,000 in 2020, based on Federal Election Fee filings.
For further measure, Basis Listing On-line knowledge present that the Soros charity Basis to Promote Open Society, gave the Colour of Change Training Fund $1,500,000 between 2015-2018. The Fund “has primarily targeted on financially supporting Colour of Change and its campaigns for varied causes,” based on Influence Watch.

Politico drooled over Colour of Change’s newest goal:
Colour of Change, a web based racial justice group with 7 million members, is looking on the businesses to sever their relationships with the [police] foundations, which for some police departments have turn out to be a useful resource for surveillance know-how, SWAT group weapons, armor, drones and Ok-9 canines. Critics say the items by the nonprofits to police departments escape public accountability.
Politico famous in its second paragraph that Financial institution of America, Chevron and Wells Fargo are “among the many companies that watchdogs are focusing on for making donations to the privately run foundations related to native police departments.”
Politico touted a report by one other group, LittleSis, a project of the liberal Public Accountability Initiative (PAI), to be able to argue that “[t]he corporations going through warmth from advocates have lengthy information of supporting police foundations throughout the nation.” Guess what, Soros funded PAI too with $140,000 in 2016. Politico didn’t point out this both.

“The group plans to situation a report on company help for police foundations within the coming weeks. It has posted on-line petitions calling on companies to divest from police foundations and refuse seats on their boards, calling out corporations together with Amazon, AT&T, Chevron and Goal,” Politico mentioned.
OSF just lately dedicated $220 million to advertise so-called “racial equality.” Maybe funding teams on the “defunding the police” entrance is a part of his plan to bend the “arc of historical past” within the “proper course,” which, for him, may imply bending it away from supporting the police.
