Multibillionaire George Soros said that he’s “deeply troubled” by all the ‘hate crimes’ that have been committed against minorities in the name of Donald Trump. “We must do something to push back against what’s happening here,” Soros said, adding that the supposed rise in hate crimes can be traced to “dark forces that have been awakened” since Hillary’s spectacular loss.
Being the compassionate philanthropist that he is, Soros has committed to donating $10 million – pocket change – to civil rights organizations across the country in an effort to combat alleged pro-Trump hate crimes. The New York Times reported:
After a series of attacks against immigrants and minorities since Election Day, the financier George Soros says he will commit $10 million from his personal foundation to combat a rise in hate crimes that he linked to the “incendiary rhetoric” of President-elect Donald J. Trump’s campaign.
His nonprofit group, the Open Society Foundations, plans to spend at least $5 million in coming weeks to fund grants of as much as $150,000 to community groups and civil rights organizations to develop plans for combating the recent spate of hate crimes and to work with victims.
The group said additional money would go toward national efforts to improve tracking of hate crimes — an effort that law enforcement officials acknowledge is incomplete. The F.B.I. reported last week that there was an increase of nearly 67 percent last year in hate crimes against Muslim Americans — and an increase of 6 percent against all groups.
Speaking of “Holocaust survivor” Soros, let’s not forget how he operates around the world, and how he uses “philanthropy” to get what he wants:
