As George Soros approaches his 90th birthday, he is hoping that his children will carry on the family business.
Citizen journalists from the /pol/ News Network are connecting the dots between Antifa riots in Berkeley, California and billionaire George Soros. “Ever wonder why Antifa riots seem to be centered at Berkeley? This is why.” /pol/ News wrote on Twitter. Attached was a picture and biography of George Soros’s son Alexander, who is a Ph.D. candidate at U.C. Berkeley.
Alexander Soros, 31, is the eldest son of George Soros’s second marriage. According to a profile in the New York Times, a younger Alexander had a reputation among the New York elite as a party boy. A 22-year-old Alexander explained in a Facebook post that most of his time was spent “chilling at dad’s house in Southampton, drinking 40s while cruising on the family boat, and making out with the babes.”
However, around the time the 2012 presidential election was starting to heat up, Alexander Soros starting taking a more active role in politics. Alexander Soros explained that his party boy image was an embarrassment to the family. He started following in his father’s footsteps by offering generous sums of money to liberal causes.
In 2012, Alexander Soros started to throw his financial weight around in support of then-presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Alexander donated $200,000 to a Jewish Super-PAC in Florida that was attempting to convince elderly citizens to support incumbent candidate Obama. Alexander is a supporter and contributor to Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, and he is a board member of his father’s infamous organization The Open Society. He also manages his own Alex Soros Foundation.
Alexander’s true political debut was launched as the 2016 presidential was ramping up. Instead of merely contributing to liberal causes, Alexander Soros was actively meeting and schmoozing with the upper echelons of the Democrat Party.
In June 2016, Alexander Soros shared a picture on Instagram featuring him and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) bonding over daytime drinks at the height of the 2016 election. A week later, Alexander Soros shared a picture on Instagram with him sitting next to then-President Barack Obama. “What an incredible honor it was to host and meet with President @barackobama at my NYC home last week. He continues to truly bring out the best in the United States of America!” Soros wrote in the caption.
Having the president of the United States drop in for a visit at your New York City apartment in the middle of one of the most tightly contested elections is a luxury few could afford, but the Soroses have spent an absurd amount of money supporting Democrat candidates.
According to The Daily Caller, George Soros spent over $25 million supporting failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and other Democrat candidates and liberal causes. Alexander also contributed over $4.5 million in support of Hillary Clinton and Democrat Super PACs.
Alex Soros has also been seen hobnobbing it on Instagram with liberal heavyweights like George Clooney, Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN), Hillary Clinton, Senator Al Franken (D-MN), and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
All of this displays the influential connection the Soros family continues to have with liberal and sometimes destructive causes.
