The Grammy Awards were not just a stage for musicians’ egos in 2015, but a platform for promoting a cause backed by President Barack Obama and a Soros-funded organization.
CBS gave 1 minute, 12 seconds at the music awards to play a pre-recorded video with President Barack Obama, during which he promoted the “It’s On Us” campaign against sexual violence.
The White House website noted that the campaign is done in “partnership” with the far-left Center for American Progress (CAP), a group funded by liberal donors George Soros, Jonathan Soros, and Tom Steyer. The White House billed the effort as an attempt “to root out sexual violence wherever it exists,” in a fact sheet released Sept. 19, 2014. Nowhere in the PSA did Obama mention that the campaign was also sponsored by CAP.
Obama urged viewers to “join our campaign to stop this violence” by visiting the campaign’s website and signing a petition. He asked the artists at the Grammys to enlist the support of their fans as well.
As the parent organization of Think Progress, CAP has provided a platform for far-left voices that are often echoed by larger, more prominent media outlets. The Huffington Post called CAP “the mothership” for “Obama’s 2012 Campaign Cavalry,” a moniker which CAP proudly accepted in its 2013 annual report.
Liberal billionaire George Soros has given CAP $10,117,186 since 2000.
