The hedge fund expert George Soros has spent a large amount of time in the last few years looking to fight the onslaught of conservatism he fears will have a detrimental effect on the world as a whole. From Brexit to the Syrian refugee crisis sweeping Europe, to the election of Donald Trump, George Soros has been an outspoken critic of the rise in conservative policies and attitudes around the world, which feels is making it difficult for almost everybody to enjoy a peaceful and happy life.
George Soros recently attended a three day Democracy Alliance event in the days following the announcement of the election victory for Donald Trump; Soros had originally intended to bypass the event he and others felt would be a celebration of the election of Democrat Hillary Clinton to the Presidency. Soros arrived at the event to meet with fellow wealthy donors who had matched his $25 million in donations to the campaign of former Secretary of State Clinton after taking the support of George Soros as a sign of the need for an all out attack on Republican candidates.
Alongside the $25 million provided for Hillary Clinton and Super PAC’s supporting her Presidential bid the Hungarian born Holocaust survivor has also been quietly active fighting to bring about change in the U.S. criminal justice system through his support of Democrat candidates on businessinsider.com. Soros is reported to have established a “527” foundation that has been providing campaign support for Democratic candidates for prosecutor and district attorney positions across six states, including Florida and Illinois; candidates have stated they were unaware of the support of George Soros until radio and TV campaigns supporting their policies arrived during the campaigning season. The $3.5 million Soros and his various foundations have provided to support minority candidates for criminal justice positions on Forbes allowed a major push to dethrone many white male conservative candidates Soros and his advisors believe maintain the imbalance between how Caucasian and minority cases are tried in the U.S.
While many Democrat’s sat back and licked their wounds in the wake of the 2016 round of national elections, George Soros was already looking to the future and planning how best to bring a change about in the Democratic party. For Soros the need to continue fighting the policies discussed by Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign season stems from the dangers he has seen in the rhetoric and policies announced by a number of Republican candidates throughout the last two years; in one instance the founder of the Open Society Foundations stated his belief that the work of ISIS was being done by Donald Trump during his campaigning. In general, George Soros has once again become involved in the political situation in the U.S. as he has explained a number of threats can be seen threatening the security of the world that must be dealt with in a safe and mature manner.
