Soros spends over $5 million on new super PAC to fund liberals in 2020
August 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Liberal mega-donor George Soros has launched a new super PAC ahead of next year’s elections, through which he hopes to help Democrats retake the United States.
The new outfit, dubbed Democracy PAC, will not directly support politicians but instead keep other left-wing groups funded, Politico reports. Soros has so far invested $5.1 million in the PAC, the single biggest check of the cycle and more than double what he spent by this point in 2016.
For an idea of what type of groups Democracy PAC may finance, a source told Politico that Soros “has, unlike Tom Steyer or [Michael] Bloomberg, funded things like Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA and EMILY’s List and Planned Parenthood and expects to continue to do so.” It will most likely not favor a candidate in the Democrat presidential primary, as Soros has said primaries “divide the Democratic Party.”
Soros spends his millions on a wide range of left-wing causes such as abortion, euthanasia, and population control, as well as same-sex “marriage,” transgenderism, and more. His New York-based Open Society Foundations spends $940 million annually in 100 different countries, including $150 million per year funding the left-wing American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the leading abortion company Planned Parenthood, and other liberal groups.
Promoting abortion on demand in America and abroad has been an area of particular emphasis for Soros. According to the Media Research Center, he has donated more than $21 million to Planned Parenthood since 2000, and gave 2017’s so-called Women’s March on Washington almost $90 million via donations to more than 100 partnered organizations such as NARAL and the National Abortion Federation.
In addition to his efforts to sway U.S. elections, Soros’ money has also helped support articles attacking orthodox Catholic universities, as well as the journalism nonprofit Poynter, which labeled numerous mainstream right-of-center news outlets (including LifeSiteNews) as “UnNews.” Soros is also an aggressive supporter of the European Union who has spent money in hopes of influencing the elections of multiple European nations.
