George Soros Will Fight On
If a competition were for “Person Most Opposed to Republicans,” George Soros would be in the mix as a favorite. Known as the “boogeyman of the right,” Soros strikes fear in the hearts of many right-wingers on the political spectrum. If possible, one would say this is an innate hatred from Soros.As a young worker, Soros toiled away as a rail porter and waiter so that he could fund his education at the London School of Economics. As he set out on his career path once leaving college, he created Soros Fund Management. As he nurtured this fund, it continued to grow. As of 2015, his net worth is $25.2 billion.Having all this wealth allowed Soros to be a thorn in the side of the Republican Party. In the 2004 election, Soros made it his mission to keep George W. Bush from retaining the presidency. John Kerry, the Democratic Presidential candidate, was the primary benefactor of this mission. Soros donated a record $27 million to Kerry’s campaign. Unfortunately for Soros, money can’t buy you everything, and Kerry lost that election.
Soros sought to put an end to the Republican agenda, and when Bush finally left office, Soros would again put forth significant money to finance a candidate in the election. After wavering between Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama, Soros ultimately decided to back the Illinois Senator who became the first black president. Soros was upset once again when Obama failed to push a strong enough liberal agenda. Clinton, a longtime friend of Soros‘, received an apology from Soros for backing Obama instead of helping her get elected.Soros would get his chance at redemption when Obama left office by once again having the opportunity to back his friend Hillary Clinton. As if he didn’t have enough motivation already, the knowledge of Donald Trump running against Clinton led Soros to an even more indulgent fight. Soros despises Trump’s agenda more than any other Republican. Soros again pledged to do everything in his power to make sure Trump didn’t become president. Out of the pocket came $25 million for Clinton’s cause and the Democratic Party.
Soros again faced disappointment as Trump would prevail despite the donation efforts. Nevertheless, Soros would now work tirelessly to make things difficult for Trump with the American people.Soros began donating large sums of money to events and organizations aimed at demolishing the president’s plans. Just one day after taking office, Soros financed and organized an event where protestors wore pink hats symbolizing the women’s rights movement, a protest that spread around the world. He continues to donate to political action committees Planned Parenthood Votes and Immigrant Voters Win. Additionally, he helps fund the American Bridge 21st Century super PAC which targets Republican candidates through fact-checking research. Soros will probably go to his grave fighting for the Liberal cause. Many people flip-flop on their political views over time, but Soros has been and will continue to be a direct enemy of any Republican efforts.
