Recently, George Soros earned a lot of attention for donating the most money to a single foundation by a private donor. George Soros is one of the most successful hedge fund managers alive today, earning billions of dollars throughout his career. His monetary generosity came in the form of $18 billion over the course of several years.
His chosen foundation, the Open Society Foundations, is the second-largest charitable foundation in the country. Over the years, Soros’s grown more philanthropic, wanting to help more as he gets older. He started donated large amounts of money a few years ago, and he just continued to donate.
The reason behind his tremendous donations is simple: he genuinely likes helping people. He’s not the kind of guy that donates millions as a tax dodge. His organization, Open Society, fights for democracy and human rights in over 120 nations. Recently, their focus has been on the United States.
After the 2016 election, the number of “hate incidents” rose exponentially. Arguably, the United States is going through one of its toughest times in recent decades. Open Society is all over the board, trying to help as many organizations and movements as possible. Their reach even protects art and culture.
The NY Times recently talked about George Soros’s political affiliations. Of course, he sides with Democrats and Hillary Clinton. That’s made him a target for anyone opposing the liberal agenda. He’s been called a number of horrible things, none as bad as the “movements” these hate groups accuse him of supporting.
He’s been labeled as everything from simply stupid to a traitor. Despite all the hate, many of the left consider him to be a shining light in these dark times. As long as there are shadows in America’s corners, there will be people speaking negatively about George Soros. As times get rougher, the accusations get worse. He’s been hated by many for decades, but things got serious after Trump’s victory. Conservatives went crazy and accuse Soros of anything that comes to mind. He’s supposedly helping both sides of social and racial movements just for fun.
One source claims that he’s responsible for the sexual assault accusations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. He’s apparently even responsible for Donald Trump firing some of his own people. None of these claims make any sense.
