Glenn has often lamented the fact that during his time at Fox News he would break big, important stories others would be there to pick up the ball and run with it, but it never happened. “These two reporters at MRC have just written a piece taking on George Soros, something that almost no one does,” he said.
While the mainstream media loves to talk about the “evil” Koch brothers and their “filthy political influence,” they rarely report about the billions George Soros has been pouring into the left to manipulate currencies, elections, and young minds. MRC reports that Soros has spent more than $400 million indoctrinating student at universities all around the world – over 50 times the amount the Koch Brothers donated to education. Soros donated $76 billion to U.S. College Bard, where $20 million we want to start up a brand new department to be run by his wife at the time.
Soros gives money to a variety of other schools specifically to promote his left-wing causes. In addition to heavily funding Central European University and Bard College, Soros funded programs and classes at universities around the world promote his radical ideology. Soros’s Open Society Foundations granted more than $400 million in gifts and commitments to higher education since the year 2000.
All of the Ivy League universities, along with a variety of state schools, private institutions, and even religiously-affiliated institutions are funded by Soros. These grants went a documentary on the War on Terror from Harvard to studying race and ethnicity at Ohio State University.
Every one of the Ivy League colleges and universities received funding from Soros. More than $15 million was granted since 2000 to promote specific programs that line up with the Soros ideology. Columbia and Harvard were the real winners, receiving more than $8 million and more than $5 million respectively. Dartmouth bottomed out with a mere $3,000 with Princeton following at $36,000. All of the other institutions received over $200,000.
Nineteen schools received more than $1 million from Soros. Central European University and Bard College led the pack followed by Columbia, the European University at St. Petersburg, and Indiana University.
“Just imagine if Charles Koch gave $25 million to Liberty University or BYU for his wife to manage her own conservative department there?” Glenn asked. “People’s heads on TV would pop.”
MRC also noted that George Soros has spent $36 million funding liberal politicians in the last few years, and another $550 million for liberal causes. “George Soros makes Charles and David Koch look like characters from Oliver Twist in comparison,” Glenn commented.
While the media flips out over groups like ALEC, yet no one seems to have a problem with the Soros funded groups like the Center for American Progress, the Tides Foundation, Media Matters, Sojourners, NAROL, Catholics for Choice, Planned Parenthood, Think Progress, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and multiple others.
“The real reason we’re talking about George Soros today on election day is because nothing can really compare to the mainstream media ignorance of the Soros election manipulating program called SOS – the SOS project,” Glenn said. “What is it? SOS stands for the Secretary of State project. It was established in July 2006 as an independent 5-27 organization devote to helping democrats get elected to the office of Secretary of State in selected swing or battleground states.”
Glenn explained that this is because of what happened in the 2004 election between George Bush and John Kerry in the swing states where there were recounts or close votes. The Secretary of State is the person who certifies candidates as well as the election results in his or her state. This person can potentially play a key role in determining the winner of a close election.
“Now, tell me that this isn’t a story that the paper of record, with all the news that’s fit to print, the New York Times. Tell me this isn’t a story that they should be interested in. Tell me that Morley Safer at 60 Minutes wouldn’t be beating down the door of David Koch’s mansion,” Glenn said.
Glenn explained that Soros is not only an admitted manipulator of currencies, but he thinks it’s fun.
George Soros: “The first part was this subversive activity, disrupting a repressive regimes. That was a lot of fun.”
“Fortunately we’re no longer alone on the exposure of the man who was trying to fundamentally transform the United States of America,” Glenn said. “We now have help from our friends at MRC. So, again, thank you.”
