A report from the Media Research Center found that billionaire leftist George Soros gave nearly a quarter of a billion dollars to groups that backed the “Day without a Woman” protests Wednesday.
The protests were scheduled to coincide with International Women’s Day, and organizers say it’s meant to show solidarity among women and “gender-oppressed people” and tout their economic power by abstaining from economic activities.
But apparently that doesn’t included accepting money from a billionaire to run the protest.
Soros didn’t fund the Jan. 21, 2017, march directly. He had already given $246,637,217 to march partners, including some of the most prominent groups battling the right: Planned Parenthood, the Center for American Progress and People for the American Way (PFAW). Those donations represent just a fragment of Soros’ massive global influence. His Open Society Foundations have given away more than $13 billion to push his globalist, anti-American views.
That’s the finding from MRC, who compiled the financial disclosures in a report from 2000 to 20014.
100 of the 544 Women’s March partners received a total of $246,637,217 from Soros between 2000 and 2014. Soros gave more than $1 million to 36 of those partners, including the Center for Reproductive Rights, MoveOn.org, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
But, ironically, while the protest is intended to show support for women, the Action Network Fundone organization backing the feminist demonstration has been found to be staffed by males.
