Americans have been watching increasing violent crime devastate U.S. cities.
Observers have been trying to figure out what’s going on, and many have landed on the fact that too many district attorneys are unwilling to enforce the law and that the left’s agenda has led to policies for more “fairness” for criminals.
But who is pushing those policies and supporting those DAs?
If you guessed that one of those culprits is George Soros, you would be correct.
The usual political critics of the billionaire philanthropist on the right have long gone after Soros’ efforts to push policies, groups, and politicians antithetical to historic U.S. sentiments, including the most infamous of these DAs, Los Angeles’ George Gascon, and defund-the-police advocates like the Color Of Change PAC.
But now an award-winning filmmaker is calling out the left’s favorite sugar daddy and accusing him of having “blood on his hands” for the increase in killings across the U.S.
In a piece for the New York Post headlined “George Soros has blood on his hands for the rise in killings nationwide,” Cuban-American video producer Robby Starbuck, who is running for U.S. Congress from Tennessee, went after Soros for funding DA candidates and pushing policies that effectively lead to the deaths of Americans.
“Over the past six years or so, Soros has poured tens of millions of dollars into the campaigns of DA candidates from coast to coast, achieving a remarkable degree of success by simply overwhelming all the other candidates,” Starbuck wrote. “Whereas normal DA candidates typically run on five-figure budgets, Soros-backed DA candidates routinely enjoy seven-figure war chests.”
“Just as President Barack Obama seized upon the notion of ‘prosecutorial discretion’ to grant de facto amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants after failing to get amnesty passed by Congress, Soros recognizes that local prosecutors can exercise the same discretion to selectively enforce laws,” he added. “Rather than spending tens of millions of dollars per state on numerous higher-profile races for state lawmakers, he can spend comparatively smaller amounts on DA races knowing that the outcome will determine how — and even whether — laws are enforced.”
“It’s part of the Hungarian-born investor’s push of progressive policies around the world through his Open Society Foundations.”
Starbuck included the list of Soros-backed leftist prosecutors:
Philly DA Larry Krasner, whose policies let Latif Williams, the accused killer of a Temple University student, out on the streets;Chicago DA Kim Foxx, famous for her soft treatment of Jussie Smollett;St. Louis circuit attorney Kim Gardner, who went after the McCloskeys for defending their home; andSan Fran DA Chesa Boudin, who once worked for Venezuela strongman Hugo Chavez — oh, and happens to be the child of Weather Underground terrorists.
“Once in office, these prosecutors implement policies that are tailor-made to increase crime and reduce public safety,” Starbuck wrote. “They eliminate or significantly lower bail requirements, making it easier for criminals to get back out on the streets after being arrested. They refuse to prosecute certain crimes, such as vagrancy, prostitution and public urination. In recent years, they’ve even used the COVID pandemic as an excuse to release convicted criminals from prison, many of whom have gone on to re-offend.”
Soros’ other projects are just as harmful, the filmmaker said, leading to “a surge in violent crime as criminals take advantage of indulgent prosecutors more interested in enforcing their peculiar conceptions of ‘fairness’ than enforcing the law or punishing those who victimize their fellow citizens.”
Soros-backed policies and DAs “are cultivating a culture of lawlessness,” Starbuck said.
The solution? The right needs to get behind people to challenge Soros’ minions.
“Until conservatives start funding viable challengers to the Soros prosecutors, the crime wave that’s taking place in communities all over the country is going to keep getting worse, and many more people will needlessly die,” Starbuck concluded.
