An age-old criticism of military leaders is just as applicable to political ones. Too many leaders prepare for the war of tomorrow with yesterday’s tactics.
Those who have been carefully paying attention will notice that the Left has changed their political strategy to one of infiltration. Infiltration of local governments with radical ideas (including mayors) who will push a political agenda for others to mimic.
Soros, as we have reported previously, has paid particular attention to asserting his considerable influence in the justice system.
Wealthy donors are spending millions of dollars to back would-be prosecutors who want to reduce incarceration, crack down on police misconduct and revamp a bail system they contend unfairly imprisons poor people before trial.
The effort is part of a years-long campaign by liberal groups to reshape the nation’s criminal justice system. New York billionaire George Soros headlines a consortium of private funders, the American Civil Liberties Union and other social justice groups and Democratic activists targeting four of the 56 district attorney positions up for election on June 5. Five other California candidates are receiving lesser support. (Read our full article, written May 2018, here.)
We are now seeing the fruit of his involvement:
Remember the couple who were charged with a ‘hate crime’ for painting over the BLM message on their street? It just so happens that he was favored by none other than the Left’s favorite Sugar-Daddy.
Contra Costa County, California, District Attorney Diana Becton announced on Tuesday that Nichole Anderson and David Nelson, both white, were being charged with three misdemeanors, including a “violation of civil rights” hate crime charge, after they were caught on video painting over a Black Lives Matter street mural.
…Becton justified the hate crime charges in a statement, saying, “We must address the root and byproduct of systemic racism in our country. The Black Lives Matter movement is an important civil rights cause that deserves all of our attention. The mural completed last weekend was a peaceful and powerful way to communicate the importance of Black lives in Contra Costa County and the country. We must continue to elevate discussions and actually listen to one another in an effort to heal our community and country.”
Becton received financial support of roughly $50,000 from Soros in 2018 as part of his broader push to fund left-wing district attorney campaigns across the country over the last several years. —WashingtonExaminer
Elections have consequences, they tell us.
We’re starting to see how very true that is.
