Soros pledges $10M to fight hate crimes from Trump’s ‘incendiary rhetoric’

Posted by | November 23, 2016 17:31 | Filed under: Good News Politics

George Soros will finance a fight against hate crimes that he believes are a result of Trump’s “incendiary rhetoric.”

Soros, a business magnate and Holocaust survivor, told The New York Times for a story published Wednesday that he was “deeply troubled” by the rise of hate crimes around the U.S., including Nazi graffiti in public.

Soros remarked to the newspaper about “dark forces that have been awakened” by the presidential election and said “we must do something to push back against what’s happening here.”

While Soros maintained that the donation is not intended to be a political statement about the president-elect, the billionaire did hold Trump and his rhetoric partially responsible for the increase in violence in recent weeks.

      I don’t know, there was someone offering to pay the lawyers fees for the women who were sexually assaulted by rump and I have not heard anything come of it. I don’t know if the donor backed out or if they women were too scared to do anything that would put their names out to the public.

        It seems as though the death threats worked.

          Can someone show lou dobbs what it is like to have your address and phone number made public so he can get death threats. I remember when he was on MSNBC and I thought the guy was effing nuts, he kept railing against “immigrants”, no wonder why he would protect rump.
