Billionaire leftist George Soros has been funding “opposition research” to tear down and destroy critics of radical Islam, all under the guise of fighting “extreme polarization.”
In another email dump by DCLeaks, a 2011 document titled “Extreme Polarization and Breakdown in Civil Discourse,” Soros’ Open Society Foundation (OSF) details how they target and destroy critics of radical Islam like Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney and Robert Spencer. It is one of more than 2,500 files stolen from the OSF by DCLeaks and published Saturday.
The group spearheading the “opposition research” is the Center for American Progress (CAP), another leftist political group that has received millions from Soros.
In the memo, Open Society Foundations (OSF) executives lamented that progressive groups and members of the Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian-American community lacked “high quality opposition research” to combat “anti-Muslim xenophobia and to promote tolerance,” The Daily Caller is reporting.
Of course, the leftists’ only weapon to “promote tolerance” is to destroy their political opponent.
The CAP project, called the “Examining Anti-Muslim Bigotry Project,” set out to engage progressives and journalists to raise awareness about the critics of radical Islam. In addition to Geller, Gaffney and Spencer, CAP planned to “research and track” the activities of David Horowitz, Daniel Pipes, Cliff May and Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
By “research and track,” they mean dig through their past to find anything incriminating that can be used against them.
Soros’ “Open Society Foundation” gave the Center for American Progress a total of $700,000 to fund the opposition research.
“We need a clearer understanding of what by all indications is a well orchestrated and well financed system by which right-wing think tanks, pundits, and politicians are able to introduce false narratives and flawed research into the media cycle and use their misinformation to manipulate public opinion and thwart progressive counterterrorism policies,” the memo states.
“Just as critically, CAP will approach its work with an appreciation of the connections between the Islamophobia movement and related forms of xenophobia.”
