Soros funded San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin out on his ear, now for the other 74
George Soros spent big on 75 District Attorney campaigns in the last election cycle. Two question are now before us is, does the successful recall of Chesa Boudin in ultra liberal San Francisco foretell the unraveling of the George Soros funded network of pro criminal District Attorneys? What can we do speed that up? Obviously the recall George Gascon effort here in Los Angeles County is most urgent for us.
For us it is will be necessary for everybody who recognizes what Gascon and his fellow radicals represent to publicly express support for Gascon’s ouster. This means chatting it up among the neighbors and in the grocery store check out line, in doctor’s office waiting room and in the church parking lot. “Did you hear that San Francisco got rid of their incompetent, billionaire funded District Attorney? I wonder when we’ll get rid of ours? Did you hear the latest [insert Gascon horror story]? Have you signed the petition yet?”
It helps to have a petition with you, ready to hand, and a story illustrating Gascon’s maleficence. Like this one from the Gateway Pundit in which the teen driver of a stolen car was sentenced to youth camp.
The Washington Examiner features the most recent report from the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund which lays out the problem on a national scale.
In a statement to Secrets, LELDF President Jason Johnson hit the Soros funding.
“Soros is using that campaign money and the hundreds of millions more for supporting organizations to quietly transform the criminal justice system for the worse, promoting dangerous policies and anti-police narratives to advance his radical agenda,” said Johnson.
He added, “Over the past decade, George Soros has spent $40 million to elect 75 of his chosen prosecutors. In campaigns from Houston and Los Angeles to Philadelphia and Orlando, Soros was the campaign’s biggest spender by far — as much as 90% of the dollars spent in some races. Soros isn’t done yet — he’s already spent another million so far this year on his hand-picked district attorneys.”
Soros is well known in liberal donor circles as a supporter of the most liberal causes, including for groups advocating gun bans and defunding the police. That has made him a prime target of law enforcement groups.
The report found that many new district attorneys had little experience but the support of liberal donors such as Soros. What’s more, it said that as the social justice movement has grown, so has funding of district attorney political campaigns.
“Traditionally, elections for district attorney have been quiet affairs. Candidates spent very little on their campaigns, instead jockeying for local endorsements and burnishing their legal qualifications for the top job. That changed recently as millions of campaign dollars have flowed into these down ballot contests. The bulk of that lavish spending on advertising and consultants has been done by (or on behalf of) ‘social justice’ candidates,” said the report.
“In most of these free spending contests, progressive forces proved victorious by either defeating incumbent Democrats or crushing a field of primary contenders. Strikingly, most of these prosecutors were political neophytes and had zero prosecutorial experience — previously an assumed prerequisite for office. Many have no previous criminal case experience,” it added.
The report listed many of the groups that have used Soros’s funding to elect prosecutors. And it lists the biggest winners of that money, including Chicago’s Kim Foxx, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, and Loudoun County, Virginia, Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj.
These radical prosecutors are not an accident, they are part of a carefully considered, well funded and skillfully advanced plan to destroy the social fabric of America by undermining our confidence in the rule of law. This is why the perennial gun control freak out will fail: if the authorities charged with enforcing the rule of law and protecting the community refuse to do so then people will resort to self defense as best they can.
All the gun control noise may result in some kind of laws, but the fact remains that Americans have been purchasing over one million guns every month for the last 34 months. America is NOT on board with gun control. Unfortunately they are not on board with Congress control either. Besides, when they pass these new laws, who are they going to get to enforce them?
