The Friendly George Soros

People who’ve rough childhoods usually grow up and become philanthropists. It’s something about learning how tough the world is at a young age that makes people want to change things. At the same time, some of those people learn to deal with things on their own and don’t care about others’ problems.

Fortunately, that’s not the type of man George Soros became. Growing up in Nazi-occupied Communist Hungary allowed Soros to learn a lot about protecting himself from hatred. When he was old enough, he fled Hungary and moved to London few a while. He eventually ended up in the United States and found success on Wall Street.

Once he’d reached a certain level of success, he created the Open Society Foundations. Open Society became his philanthropic arm that wrapped around the world. Although anyone can donate to the organization, Soros is the primary and most affluent donor.

The NY Times says he’s donated $18 billion over the last 30-plus years. He didn’t donate that sum all at the same time, but he was making large donations every year. The Wall Street Journal reported that he’s donated $800 to $900 every year for the past 30 years.

A lot of people agree that George Soros is the perfect man to lead a philanthropic cause. He’s not afraid to publicly stand against hate. After the 2016 election, President Donald Trump allowed a wave of hate to sweep across the country. This caused Open Society to turn its attention to the United States, and George Soros’s lacrosse camp.

Since the wave of hate, nearly every minority group has been attacked numerous times. With no official support from the government, it’s up to organizations like Open Society to fight against the hate. Even Mr. Soros gave $10 million directly to the organizations trying to prevent future racial violence, and Twitter.com.

His efforts as a philanthropist have made him a hated man by a lot of right-wing supporters. Since rising to power, these hate groups have launched several websites detailing Soros’s “horrifying” acts of treachery. He’s accused of trying to make Ireland a “pro-abortion country” and undermining several countries’ control.

According to JPost, Roy Moore, an Alabama Senate candidate, accused Soros of hiring women to accuse him of sexual assault. Anything that happens that Republicans don’t like, they blame on Soros. According to them, he’s the secret ruler of the world.
