George Soros Shifts Fortune to Charity.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the political divide in the United States is wider than it has been in generations. This was made evident when George Soros, a world-renowned investor, and philanthropist, was lambasted by conservative media when it was revealed through financial disclosures that he had donated nearly $18 BILLION to charity. Soros, the founder of the Soros Hedge Fund, shifted the vast majority of his wealth to charity in response to the rising tide of darkness that the rise of Donald Trump had brought to the forefront of the American political scene. Soros founded the Open Society Foundations back in the ’70s in order to help push progressive values around the world while also seeking to bring humanitarian and social aid to those in need — no matter what corner of the globe they were born in. Despite this noble pursuit, Soros has been continually demonized for his work.

George Soros was born and Hungary but he and his family were forced to flee during the Nazi occupation. This early life experienced help to establish a few important tenets in Soros’ life. He learned early on that there was value in fighting for the good of your common man and that there were very real dangers of unchecked and violent populism and nationalism. Seeing the brutality of the Nazi regime up close led Soros to study the concept of the Open Society and this would inform his later pursuits in both politics and philanthropy. Soros would create the Open Society Foundations as a response to what he felt was his obligation to help out the rest of the world. The OSF has been there for the Roma people who have been persecuted throughout Europe. The OSF has been there for those that struggled during Apartheid era Africa. The OSF even mobilized a response team during the recent Ebola epidemic. Still, Soros and his foundation find their way to the center of every right-wing conspiracy theory.

George Soros first found his way to the center of unsubstantiated and wild conspiracy theories back in the early ’90s when he made a stunning $1 billion by shorting the British pound. Since then, Soros has become some sort of financial bogeyman for whoever needs someone convenient to blame though the blame is almost always partisan in nature. Soros further fell under the crosshairs of conservative media giants when the billionaire progressive spoke out against George W. Bush and his march to war in Iraq after the deadly and tragic 9/11 attacks. Now, Soros is the convenient pincushion conservatives need someone to sic their followers after.

Most notable about George Soros’ donation of $18 billion to the Open Society Foundations is that he is creating a face for what has become known as the resistance against Donald Trump. Soros was a constant source of reality when people laughed during Trump’s rise as the GOP nominee. Soros never laughed, instead he realized that Trump would be a real problem for America. Soros’ recent decision to move his finances directly to charity show the biggest indicator that he’s willing to stand up against Trump’s devastating regime.
