George Soros and other far-left billionaires began a three-day conference with Democratic Party activists and leaders to plan a war against President-elect Donald Trump.
Soros, along with the other far-left billionaires who make up the “Democracy Alliance” (DA), are meeting for a three-day investors conference at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC.
“This is our first time to gather and talk since the cataclysm of Election Day,” the conference agenda notes.
DA President Greg LaMarche, formerly Vice President and Director of U.S. Programs for the Soros-founded Open Society Foundation, held a panel discussion with “four of the most thoughtful leaders of the Progressive community” on Sunday, the first day of the conference.
SEIU International President Mary Kay Henry, Center for Community Change President Deepak Bhargava, and Demos President Heather McGhee were part of the panel along with Van Jones, a longtime Democratic activist and CNN analyst who recently suggested Donald Trump’s election was due to a “white-lash.”
“The 2016 election has upended much of what we thought we knew about American politics,” the agenda says.
“It has shown a roiling discontent with the political establishment, and there is ferment in the air. Forces of reaction, caution, and progress will joust for power in the coming period.”
The work of organizations such as 350 Action, CPD Action, CWA, Demos Action, MoveOn.org, People’s Action, Pico Action, Wellstone Action and Working Families Party to “intervene in national and state politics beginning early in 2017” will be discussed as well.
Prominent members of the Democratic Party, including Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, Minnesota Congressman (and expected candidate for Chair of the Democratic National Committee) Keith Ellison, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi are also expected to be in attendance,
The “Democracy Alliance” has a well-documented history of funding far-left causes, having funneled over $500 million to left-leaning groups since its founding in 2005.
One of the DA’s favorite causes is stoking racial division. In November 2015, members of Black Lives Matter met with the Democracy Alliance to discuss funding for the organization.
“The DA, as the club is known in Democratic circles, is recommending its donors step up check writing to a handful of endorsed groups that have supported the Black Lives Matter movement,” Politico reported at the time.
“And the club and some of its members also are considering ways to funnel support directly to scrappier local groups that have utilized confrontational tactics to inject their grievances into the political debate.”
