Why is Soros’s Money Kosher, but Sheldon’s Not?

$39.3 million dollars.

That’s how much George Soros and friends plan to steer to left-wing groups in America through the Democracy Alliance in 2014, according to an exclusive report in the Washington Free Beacon (they’ve been getting a lot good scoops lately).

A secretive dark money group backed by George Soros and other liberal mega-donors is looking to steer nearly $40 million to left-wing groups in 2014 to support high-profile political and policy efforts, according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The documents reveal for the first time the Democracy Alliance’s full portfolio of supported organizations, a large network of powerful liberal groups looking to win key electoral and legislative victories.

The Democracy Alliance connect major donors to influential left-wing activist groups to affect political change.

Doesn’t this sound a lot like the New Israel Fund?

Among the recipients is Organizing for Action, a Barack Obama/White House sanctioned advocacy group.

The Free Beacon’s report says the secretive Democracy Alliance is responsible for around 20% of the financial support for the left-wing organizations they’re helping fund.

The Democracy Alliance does not actually accept those contributions. Instead, it connects donors to a network of groups that it has vetted and strategically endorsed. The goal is to create a collaborative fundraising apparatus that maximizes the effectiveness of large contributions to left-wing groups.

Personally, I have no problem with Soros doing this. The free market of ideas should be free, even for the super rich.

But it does raise the very real question, why is George Soros’s money kosher when it comes to influencing politics and elections (and obviously not only through this organization), while Sheldon Adelson’s money is not?

We all know the answer to that.

Perhaps Adelson needs to also set up an organization that quietly directs funds indirectly to the causes he supports.

Would that win him that highly vaunted Kashrut certification against left-wing criticism?

Of course not, but it would shine the hypocrisy light a little brighter on the double standard.

  1. that depends on ones imagination and calculation.

  2. Joe Weiss says:

    Soros has been attacked by the Tea Partites for some time. Its wrong to assume he is immune from attacks

  3. Soros is an ultra liberal, self hating Jew.Period.

  4. David Elliot says:

    Soros money is kosher because he hate jews, Israel and America.

  5. Because the media agrees with Soros, of course.

  6. Karen Bryant says:

    Just ask yourselves… Who does Soros own?

  7. Ray Buchmann says:

    Soros is one of the men behind Obama. One of those leading America down the road to ruin.

  8. A snake in the grass is still a snake in the grass no matter how old you are.

  9. Lize Bartsch says:

    What do you mean ‘trying’??? Are you blind, Soros is fulltime into the New World Order changing countries to prepare them for the Luciferian take over!!!

  10. Avis Johnson says:

    You said it Harvey! Self hating Jew! Nuff said!

  11. Soros can't take it with him. GOD'S WORD…."I will curse those who curse Israel and bless those who bless Israel". Soros has established his own place in eternity….read Psalm 10 which describes his future in detail.

  12. First of all, Soros’s anti-Semitic past appeals to anti-Semites. And there are a lot of them in the world.

    Second, Soros is a Statist. He believes in the direct control of every aspect of the life of the individual, which is in direct opposition to the freedom promised (but not yet realized by all) by Hashem. Soros is about control. Many believe that control is the answer, not freedom. They believe that man cannot handle his own affairs, but they refuse to allow Hashem in the mix.

    Which in the third part, brings ups to the conclusion that Soros directly denies Hashem.

    Fourthly, Soros is working towards a one world government, where he and his kind will rule the lives of all men with an iron hand. Too bad that there is clay mixed in his feet. He will be shattered, and pass away from all memory. But there are many who do not know that most wars are actually fought between close family members and business associates, so they think that one world government is the answer. It is the right idea, but not with selfish, evil rich men at the head. That is the job of only one.

    And last, Soros is definitively selfish and humanist. Almost all men are the same, so they empathize. They receive him as one of their own.

    Yet mashiach is promised to still walk the earth, in spite of all that Soros and his legions do. Soros is anathemic to the concept of mashiach, and hates the very idea of his coming. The world resents the idea of mashiach being a part of the Jewish nation, no matter the amount of Jewish blood in him; so they side with Soros, who is obviously in direct opposition to everything that Hashem and mashiach stand for.

    Too bad for him. How can the dust stand against the wind?
