TikTok activists received $300K from George Soros to support Biden, push radical leftist agenda on young people
Generation Z TikTok activists received at least $300,000 in 2022 from George Soros’ foundation to post social media content supporting President Joe Biden and promoting the radical, leftist agenda, the New York Post reported.
According to public documents reviewed by the Post, Soros’ Open Society Foundations gave $5.5 million in 2020 and 2021 to Accelerate Action Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to implementing “new models for citizen organizing, particularly in communities of color.” In 2022, the organization then provided at least $300,000 to Gen-Z for Change, another nonprofit previously called TikTok for Biden.
The latest publicly available tax records revealed that Accelerate Action was the only nonprofit to donate funds to Gen-Z for Change, the Post reported.
Gen-Z for Change describes itself as a group of “young activists who use online platforms to effect positive social change,” according to its website. The group uses social media platforms to “drive progressive change and hold those in power accountable.”
The organization supports left-wing causes, including “climate justice,” “workers’ rights and economic justice,” “gender equality and reproductive rights,” “LGBTQ+ rights,” “Indigenous rights,” and “racial justice.”
Gen-Z for Change pushes young voters to back universal health care, the cancellation of outstanding medical debt, red flag laws for firearm ownership, and a ban on voter ID laws. The young activists also support providing all refugees with asylum, abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, defunding the police, and ending cash bail.
The group has slammed conservatives for moves to ban critical race theory curricula in public schools.
“Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin created a tipline for teachers, including ‘critical race theory,’ in their curriculum. Critical race theory, a sociological framework, is weaponized by Republicans to sensationalize a huge nothing-burger. Simply put, Republicans do not want an accurate depiction of race relations in the United States. So, to avoid making teachers’ jobs more difficult, and to troll bigoted Republicans, we created code that people could use to spam the tiplines with lyrics of songs or whatever they imagined,” the group boasted.
Last year, Biden’s administration briefed the Gen-Z TikTok users on the nation’s effort in Ukraine. They were also invited to the White House to witness Biden sign the Inflation Reduction Act.
The Post reported that it is unclear how the group has distributed Soros’ funds.
Upstate New York Republican Representative Elise Stefanik told the outlet, “George Soros is funding the next generation of far-left activists on a platform that is beholden to the [Chinese Communist Party.]”
An Open Society Foundations spokesperson told the Post, “We believe that more, rather than fewer, voters, including among younger and historically marginalized communities, should be empowered to participate in America’s democracy through free and fair elections. We’re proud to support organizations working with new technologies to spur civic participation and help enable more inclusive, just, and open societies.”
Gen-Z for Change’s founder, Aidan Kohn-Murphy, did not respond to multiple requests for comment, the Post reported.
