A “one-eyed King among the blind,” “some kind of god, the creator of everything,” “brilliant” and “clever;” these are just some of the disturbing bona fides a new book analyzes that leftist billionaire George Soros has acquired for himself over his decades-long activist career.
“Soros is right; America is under attack; its Constitution, independence, and democracy are under attack by Soros and his army,” wrote American Center for Democracy Founder and President Rachel Ehrenfeld in her new book The Soros Agenda (2023). Ehrenfeld’s work detailed the ungodly fortunes (over $32 billion) spent by Soros to transform society into his distorted view of an “open society,” a leftist utopia undergirded by anti-Americanism, Marxist economics, climate change extremism, abortion-on-demand and racial strife.
Ehrenfield did not shy away from controversial topics in this work, linking Soros to several color revolutions and to anti-Israel groups, while also providing evidence that Soros lacks compassion and despises his background. She also delved into the lack of transparency that is characteristic of many Soros initiatives.
The main task that Ehrenfeld undertook with this work was to demonstrate connections that are regularly obscured or ignored by establishment media outlets, while Soros-funded fact-checkers rebuke those who do report on Soros’ actions. She sought to expose Soros’ “intricate, multilayered web” of organizations from the Open Society Foundations, to groups such as the leftist Justice and Public Safety PAC, Democracy PAC II, the Drug Policy Alliance, the Lazarus Fund and other organizations. This “web” allows the media to deny the connections between Soros and these organizations and their actions.
In some cases, these connections extend to the media. Ehrenfeld cites Dan Gainor, former Vice President of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center, pointing to a 2011 NewsBusters article showing how Soros invested over $48 million “in media properties, including the infrastructure of news–journalism schools, investigative journalism, and even industry organizations.”
Ehrenfeld also cites another special report from the Media Research Center, noting George Soros had spent $407,790,344 to influence education “since the year 2000.” These were not the only references to our work, as Ehrenfeld also cited a NewsBusters article on Soros’ exploitation and undermining of the Catholic Faith, as well as a NewsBusters article by MRC Business & MRC Free Speech America Associate Editor Joseph Vazquez, exposing the connections between Soros and President Joe Biden’s radical former Federal Communications Commission nominee Gigi Sohn.
Ehrenfield sought to make these connections clear, laying bare both Soros’ actions and motivations. Before delving into Soros’ impact on U.S. drug policy and criminal justice, Ehrenfeld puts Soros’ “compassion” into perspective by quoting a disturbing Soros statement about his terminally ill father: “‘I was there when he died, yet I let him die alone. I saw him, but I didn’t touch him.’”
Instead, Ehrenfeld suggested that Soros seeks to “undermine the country’s legal system, moral values, and sovereignty,” a point she reinforces when she states that Soros’ preferred drug policies harm family formation. Ehrenfeld also cited Soros’ ideology and megalomania as a motivation, and it’s apparently paying dividends. Ehrenfeld wrote that Soros is “succeeding in changing—more accurately—shattering the U.S. legal system, as he set out to do when he opened his Open Society office in New York would affirm his childhood fantasy that he’s God.”
As evidence for Soros’ meddling in our legal system, Ehrenfeld listed multiple organizations that Soros’ network has poured money into to elect leftist officials, such as Democracy PAC II and the Justice and Public Safety PAC. She mentioned how the Open Society Foundations endorsed abolishing the police, and provides a long list of Soros-backed leftist officials such as radical Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón.
She even gave a shocking window into the thinking that prompted the Soros apparatus’ radical activism in the legal system. Ehrenfeld mentioned that former Open Society Foundations President Patrick Gaspard responded to the Marxist Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots in 2020 with a “new investment of $220 million in Black-led racial justice groups” and declared: “‘Now is the moment we’ve been investing in for the last 25 years.’”
Ehrenfield also delved into a commonly used tactic of Soros supporters and media mouthpieces launching baseless accusations of antisemitism against critics of Soros, who is an agnostic, in The Soros Agenda. She cataloged the disturbing anti-Israel and anti-Semitic groups funded by Soros over the years to unravel the perception that Soros has any strong religious or cultural connection to the Jewish people and demonstrated how he actually has a strong bias against them.
Ehrenfield chronicled how Soros even criticized the “tribalness” in Jewish identity. Soros said, “‘I don’t think that you can ever overcome anti-Semitism if you behave as a tribe … The only way you can overcome it is if you give up the tribalness.’” Soros’ anti-Israel activism in particular is specifically manifested itself through his support for anti-Israel groups, as Ehrenfeld shows in her writing.
Soros has heavily funded the radical J-Street, which according to Ehrenfeld once protested a law penalizing the Palestinian Authority for incentivizing suicide bombers. Soros also supports anti-Israel groups like Human Rights Watch, which Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz recently condemned Soros for supporting.
