Matthew Vadum wrote an article in the most recent issue of Foundation Watch, discussing the Democracy Alliance – an organization put together by George Soros –how it is continuing to grow and the levels of irony behind it.
The Democracy Alliance—a secretive, pro-Democratic Party funding powerhouse—is embracing more union bosses as members, amid growing fears in left-wing circles that Republicans are poised to take over the U.S. Senate in the November elections. This trend adds to organized labor’s already considerable clout within this elite fundraising empire, which claims to have funneled more than $500 million into liberal and pro-Democratic organizations. The invitation-only Alliance, co-founded by far-left billionaire philanthropist George Soros, calls itself a “first-of-its-kind partnership of change-makers who are committed to a stronger democracy and a more progressive America.”
He explains that over the past nine years, the organization has given extreme progressive politicians the funding they need to “secure victories at the ballot box and in policy fights,” polarizing our nation and plaguing us with progressivism.
He explains that the Democracy Alliance funds many extreme left-wing groups, such as
People for the American Way, EMILY’s List, ACORN, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Progressive States Network, Center for Community Change, Sierra Club, U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) Education Fund, and the (now defunct) Secretary of State Project, which helped elect left-wing candidates to be the chief electoral official in at least nine states (these little-noticed officials become critical when vote fraud occurs).
This election cycle, the wealthy millionaire and billionaire members of the Alliance plan to bring $200 million into
[K]ey groups that are working for a permanent left-wing Democrat majority. Among the groups benefiting from the Alliance’s largesse are the John Podesta-founded Center for American Progress, Media Matters for America, America Votes, and Organizing for Action.
For a group of people who spend a majority of their time vilifying Charles and David Koch, the fact that most members are millionaires and billionaires themselves make them extremely hypocritical.
This is another way Democrats look to distract from Obama and other progressive politicians’ failed policy ideals.
