Leftist billionaire George Soros’ ungodly fortune is leaving a dark legacy on American culture and society. Apparently, that legacy included moonlighting as a Minister of Truth by dumping millions of dollars into fighting the leftist catch-all boogeyman of so-called “disinformation” online and across the globe.
Soros poured $14,853,765 into at least 50 groups for the express purpose of railing against “disinformation” online and elsewhere between 2017-2021 alone, according to Open Society Foundations records
. The Soros-funded groups found in MRC Free Speech America’s tally included radicalized organizations engineered to fight against “disinformation” disseminated by users on Big Tech platforms. One U.S.-based grant, for example, went to a leftist group
called the Institute for Strategic Dialogue “to detect and expose online activity that poses a threat to the health of the US information environment,” which is another way of saying “information” that doesn’t comport with leftist propaganda. Another grant to the leftist Aspen Institute Germany
was for the purpose of engaging “online influencers in the fight against disinformation and strengthen[ing] a fact-based information ecosystem in Germany in the run-up to the 2021 federal elections.”
"There's an unholy alliance between Big Media, Big Tech and left-wing big donors," MRC Free Speech America Vice President Dan Schneider
said in a statement. "We've previously shown
how George Soros influences media by funding hundreds of outlets all over the world. Now, we've discovered how he is also funding left-wing nonprofits to silence conservatives using this pernicious term 'disinformation,' which really means silencing people whose political views are contrary to the left." Schneider analyzed that Soros is a "clever guy who's bringing together left-wing media and left-wing organizations to erase the conservative voice."
