Never Mention that George Soros Is Funding Anti-Cop Candidates, Not Even on Fox News

(The Unz Review) That anti-enforcement organizations funded by the Soros family have been pouring often decisive amounts of money into previously obscure county-level races for district attorney used to be considered news, but now is considered an unmentionable anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

For example, from way back in 2018, here is a long Los Angeles Times news story on the Soros efforts that was funded and written, in part, by a Soros-funded group:

Here’s why George Soros, liberal groups are spending big to help decide who’s your next D.A.

In most district attorney elections, the campaign playbook is clear: Win over the local cops and talk tough on crime.

But in California this year, the strategy is being turned on its head.

Wealthy donors are spending millions of dollars to back would-be prosecutors who want to reduce incarceration, crack down on police misconduct and revamp a bail system they contend unfairly imprisons poor people before trial.

The effort is part of a years-long campaign by liberal groups to reshape the nation’s criminal justice system. New York billionaire George Soros headlines a consortium of private funders, the American Civil Liberties Union and other social justice groups and Democratic activists targeting four of the 56 district attorney positions up for election on June 5. Five other California candidates are receiving lesser support.

The cash infusion in the nonpartisan elections turns underdog challengers into contenders for one of the most powerful positions in local justice systems, roiling conventional law-and-order politics...

The 2016 election in Illinois of Kim Foxx as Cook County state’s attorney illustrated the power of combining national money and local field teams.

… Soros joined the fight. So did Color of Change, Move On and Democracy for America — national organizations also engaged in the California races. …

Foxx won in a landslide, becoming Cook County’s first black state’s attorney.

Foxx, of course, was the DA who dismissed charges against hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett.
