Back in April George Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF) pledged $20 million to boost the Biden infrastructure agenda, saying they aim to support “green infrastructure, inclusive economic opportunity, and democracy reforms.”
Just like Biden himself, Soros looks to use Biden’s infrastructure agenda as a trojan horse to pass more controversial parts of a the progressive agenda (hence the small percent of the bill that actually funds what we traditionally define as infrastructure). Soros is at least open about that, with the OSF calling for inclusion of a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens in what’s supposed to be an infrastructure bill.
OSF also announced they were working to raise $125 million with other groups to “demand passage of the boldest possible reforms” to advance their progressive vision.
And now he’s found thirty-allies in Congress for agenda items that include the aforementioned, and many other radical leftist proposals.
According to the Washington Free Beacon:
A left-wing advocacy group funded by George Soros and backed by 30 House Democrats is planning a yearlong campaign for a “Third Reconstruction” that includes abolishing ICE, expanding welfare for illegal immigrants, and removing criminal penalties for violent protesters.
The Poor People’s Campaign, which received a grant from the Soros-backed Open Society Foundations following the death of George Floyd as part of the organization’s $220 million “anti-racist” initiative, held a Day of Action on Monday to kick off its crusade. The group counts Democratic Reps. Cori Bush (D., Mo.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), and Jamie Raskin (D., Md.) as top supporters, with the “Third Reconstruction” described to the Washington Free Beacon by a senior GOP Senate aide as the “next Green New Deal.”
The “Third Reconstruction” includes a laundry list of far-left demands such as automatic voter registration, a single-payer health care system, a reparations commission, and “relief from student debt, housing debt, utilities debt, medical debt, and other household and personal debt that cannot be paid.” Despite proposing that the dozen-plus programs, estimated to cost well into the trillions of dollars, be financed “using deficit spending,” the “Third Reconstruction” calls for a 10 percent cut to the military budget.
Fortunately all of those proposals are dead on arrival in the Senate, and will likely give Republicans plenty of material to campaign against in 2022.
