Next Tuesday Ohio will be deciding on Issue 1, a despicably pro-abortion, anti-family proposed state constitutional amendment. George Soros, the world’s richest leftist string-puller, has poured multiple millions from outside the state into swaying the vote. It’s another case of Soros wanting people everywhere doing things his way.
He and his foundations have contributed more than $12 million of the $40 million raised to push this despicable amendment on the state. If that doesn’t bother you as much as it does me as an Ohio resident, this might: The same Soros funding groups have donated even more heavily to anti-Israel, pro-Hamas groups.
Pushing His Way Around Ohio
Soros has been generous here — “generous” in this case meaning, “Spend millions on controlling other people’s lives.” Here are some of the numbers.
According to Transparency USA reports Beltway-based, Soros-funded Sixteen Thirty Fund has poured almost $5.5 million directly into Ohio pro-abortion coffers this year. The same group dropped another $1.25 million on Ohio via the Ohioans for Reproductive Freedom PAC.
And as if that weren’t enough of Soros pushing his way around where he doesn’t live, he’s also a major backer for the San Francisco-based Tides Foundation, which has spent nearly $1.5 million on Ohio abortion “rights.”
What Soros Wants, Soros Buys
I don’t see why New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. should decide how we vote here in Ohio. Soros wants it, though, and he’s determined to have it. He gives lots of money, but don’t confuse that with generosity — or with his being an all-around nice guy. He gives so he can get what he wants. Or as Elon Musk put it plainly enough: “I think he fundamentally hates humanity.”
I have a line I use with my family for fun when I hear numbers like that: “That’s more than I make in a week!” Fact is, it’s more than anyone makes in a lifetime, unless they pull in a cool $2.5 million a year, starting right out of college.
So much for Dems’ claiming they’re the party of the little guy.
Spending Millions on Hamas
But what Soros wants isn’t just leftists in America. He’s also funding terrorist, anti-Israelite groups in the regions surrounding Israel. Soros-backed funding entities that invaded Ohio this year have given even more generously to anti-Semitic causes and groups, including Hamas: over $10 million recently, according to The New York Post.
I’d rather not try guessing what he’s wants to buy with that money.
A spokesperson for one of those groups told Fox News, in a follow-up to The Post’s report, “Grants provided by Arabella’s nonprofit clients to the referenced organizations were used for projects and purposes that have nothing to do with the Israel-Palestine conflict. Claims otherwise are as false as they are reprehensible.”
Okay, fine. The Post doesn’t claim the funds were sent specifically for those purposes. It does say Soros-backed groups have been very generous to Hamas, along with several other terrorism-connected causes. Isn’t that enough?
A Tricky Way to Lie
So Arabella’s complaint about “claims otherwise” was (by implication) a false claim itself. It’s a neat little tactic, for those who don’t care about honesty: If you can’t deny the truth, make up a lie and deny that instead. Maybe someone will think your denial has something to do with the charge.
One Soros observer I’ve spoken with sees it as a “swarming” strategy.
It’s a lot like recent Ohio campaign fliers raising a breathless alarm about banning abortions as if it were about to happen here, while quoting a line from NPR referencing a law that was decided four years ago. The strategy is the same: Act like you’re talking about something real, and people who aren’t paying attention may believe it actually is real. If one person falls for it, he’s gullible. That’s on him. If everyone falls for it, they’re all gullible. That’s on them all.
Either way, you’re lying. That’s on you.
The “Swarming” Strategy: To Rule the Country, One State at a Time
Soros isn’t just trying to control Ohio. Besides dumping multiple millions to elect his preferred politicians everywhere, he poured close to $10 million into Michigan’s pro-abortion Proposal 3 last year.
One Soros observer I’ve spoken with sees it as a “swarming” strategy: Pick one key state a year, pummel it with all the leftist campaign money it takes to get what you want there, then move your swarm on to the next state for the next election. As many as six states may have already fallen.
Michael Bloomberg has been in on it, too, but when it comes to buying elections, Soros is the reigning king. I can’t help wondering if it’s because we don’t have actual kings here. He can’t control the country by actually sitting on a throne, so he uses what he has to accomplish the next best — or pardon me, the next worst — thing.
Elon Musk was right. This is hatred for humanity. Vote it down, Ohio!
