On Wednesday, Fox News cut off former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich after he rightly called out billionaire George Soros for his roll in swaying elections in the past by funding campaigns for far-left prosecutors.
Gingrich stated that the rise of crime in many left-wing cities was due to the progressive district attorneys who fail to do their job. The district attorneys were given financial help by Soros himself.
“Look, the number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said. “Just yesterday they put somebody back on the streets who’s wanted for two different murders in New York City.”
He added: “You cannot solve this problem — and both [Kamala] Harris and [Joe] Biden have talked very proudly out what they call ‘progressive district attorneys’. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money.
“And they’re a major cause of the violence we’re seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street,” Gingrich continued.
“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” Francis responded.
“He paid for it,” Gingrich shot back. “I mean, why can’t we discuss that fact that millions of dollars….”.
“No he didn’t,” Harf said. “I agree with Melissa. George Soros doesn’t need to be a part of this conversation.”
“Okay, so it’s verboten,” Gingrich continued as he used the German word for “forbidden.”
Gingrich is right which is why even the left-wing Los Angeles Times made similar comments in an article titled “Here’s why George Soros, liberal groups are spending big to help decide who’s your next D.A.”:
The effort is part of a years-long campaign by liberal groups to reshape the nation’s criminal justice system. … Where law-and-order campaigns appeal to fear, the new strategy targets anger. One issue that has caught fire is police shootings. “It’s really coming from this Black Lives Matter moment of police accountability,” said Margaret Dooley-Sammuli, criminal justice and drug policy director for the ACLU of California.
Much of the money remained “hidden,” funneled (presumably legally) through non-profit groups that did not have to disclose their donors. It is therefore unknown precisely how many races Soros was involved in, though the Times reported that the number was at least 21. In many cases, Soros backed left-wing candidates against establishment Democrats. Soros-backed prosecutors have played a role in several national controversies. They include Kim Foxx, the Chicago-area prosecutor who mishandled the Jussie Smollet hate crime hoax; Kim Garnder, the St. Louis prosecutor who charged the McCloskeys after they defended their home from a Black Lives Matter mob by standing outside with their guns; and Diana Becton, who has charged a California couple with a hate crime for painting over a “Black Lives Matter” mural on a public road. In a 2018 essay about Soros in Tablet magazine, an online Jewish publication, James Kirchik noted that while some criticism of Soros is indeed antisemitic, some is not, and focuses on legitimate criticism of his role in funding the far left around the world.
