A notorious billionaire is dumping almost a quarter billion dollars into groups pushing Marxism and black racial superiority, ultimately to attack the Catholic Church.
On Monday, hedge-fund billionaire and atheist George Soros announced "a new $220 million investment" to "build power in black communities and new anti-racist policies in the U.S."
Racial violence has gripped major cities across the United States since May with Black Lives Matter (BLM) — an openly Marxist organization promoting homosexuality, transgenderism and the destruction of the Western nuclear family at the forefront of the violence.
Since 2015, Soros has supported the newborn organization with a leaked memo approving $650,000 "in Opportunities Fund support to invest in tecnical [sic] assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement."
He's also doubling donations to Democrat political action committees, from $20 million in 2016 to $40 million in 2020, all in an effort to thwart the re-election of Donald Trump.
But now BLM and other leftist organizations are turning their ire toward Catholics with the destruction of statues dedicated to St. Junípero Serra and the namesake of St. Louis, Missouri, the French medieval crusader king.
This is not the first time Soros has funded anti-Catholic movements. In 2016 he helped fund the effort to legalize abortion in Catholic Ireland.
A leaked Open Society Foundations memo is revealing the effort to "impact other strongly Catholic countries in Europe, such as Poland, and provide much-needed proof that change is possible, even in highly conservative places."
For 30 years, Soros has been opposing Church teaching with his massive fortune, but with this latest move, he's openly declaring war on the Catholic Church.
