To combat anti-refugee and anti-Muslim backlash after Islamic terror attacks, Soros’ Open Society Foundations poured money into various networks and gave talking points to organizations and political leaders, according to leaked documents.
Documents show Attorney General Loretta Lynch right in the thick of it all.
One recipient (grantee) of Soros’ money is an organization called “Muslim Advocates”. On the Open Society Foundations website, they admit a grant was given to this organization:
“A grant of $320,000 over two years to provide core support to continue work to end the racial and religious profiling and discriminatory treatment of Muslim Americans and to strengthen Muslim American charitable organizations.”
Loretta Lynch was a key-note speaker at the Muslim Advocates annual dinner on December 3, 2015. The announcement said this was the first public event for Lynch with the American Muslim community, and that “Lynch will discuss the priorities of the U.S. Department of Justice, particularly its efforts to combat anti-Muslim hate and discrimination.”
Breitbart has reported on a hacked Soros document, with the same date of December 3, 2015, titled “Aftermath of ISIS attacks.” The document was published one day after the December 2 Islamic terror attack in San Bernardino. The memo says, “Anticipating a backlash against Muslims, advocates swung into high gear.”
The document outlines several Soros grantees who were immediately set in motion to attack any who spoke against Islamic immigration, pushing for more gun control, and also referenced Loretta Lynch’s speech at the Muslim Advocates dinner, in order to “battle hate speech and anti-Muslim discrimination.”
Here are some actions, as cited in the document:
*ReThink Media, funded in part through NSHR grantee the Security and Rights Collaborative, distributed a set of talking points to organizations working to combat Islamophobia and arranging a series of conference calls to discuss messaging and crisis communications tactics.
*Muslim Advocates was set to host a conversation with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on efforts to battle hate speech and anti-Muslim discrimination at its annual dinner in Washington DC.
* Advocates of greater gun control took to Twitter, chiding the parade of politicians who sent “thoughts and prayers” without taking concrete steps to improve public safety. The Center for American Progress convened calls on mass gun violence—one of a number of efforts to follow through on President Obama’s exhortation to revive efforts to enact new controls, such as universal background checks or a ban on assault rifles.
* The National Security Network released a new policy report entitled Mainstreaming Hate: The Far-Right Fringe Origins of Islamophobic and Anti-Refugee Politics in their handling of the Syrian refugee resettlement.
* The Refugee Council USA and some of its members issued calls to action to safeguard the Syrian refugee resettlement program.
After the Lynch event, a second Foundations’ memo boasted, “Appearing at the annual dinner hosted by grantee Muslim Advocates, Attorney General Loretta Lynch vowed that her department would vigorously investigate claims of hate speech that could lead to anti-Muslim violence.”
Sensing a likely backlash calling for restrictions on the visa waiver program – since one of the San Bernardino terrorists was from Pakistan – Soros’ group sprung into action, announcing more money to be given to support refugee groups:
Following the San Bernardino shootings in December by a U.S. citizen and his Pakistani spouse, there were additional proposals to limit the immigration of foreign nationals from specific Muslim countries, including restrictions on the visa waiver program.
US Programs’ Reserve Fund request, already in pipeline since the Syrian refugee crisis erupted last summer, received tentative approval. This request, which includes both c3 and c4 components, will provide communications capacity and advocacy support to refugee groups. It will also bolster immigrant rights groups’ ability to respond to anti-Muslim and anti-refugee rhetoric, which has been prominent in the race for the Republican 2016 presidential nomination.
Breitbart states that other hacked documents show that Soros personally sent President Obama a letter regarding the number of refugees the U.S. accepts, and that Soros and his foundation “helped to successfully press the Obama administration” into increasing the number of refugees the U.S. takes in annually. Obama has announced an increase, from 85,000 in 2016 to 110,000 for fiscal year 2017.
Another hacked Soros document dated November 17, 2015, titled “ISIS Attacks Aftermath” revealed that the Soros organization was working hard to stop Congress leaders and governors from banning Syrian refugees from resettlement:
Cities United for Immigration Action, a coalition of nearly 100 mayors, municipalities and counties organized by New York City’s Bill de Blasio, sought to counter the wave of governors opposed to allowing in Syrian refugees with a message of welcome and inclusion. “We should not close our borders to any group of people fleeing the atrocities and horrors of terrorism,” said Mayor de Blasio.
Breitbart reports that another hacked Soros document, dated January 7, 2016, revealed that one action on the agenda for a Soros grantee was a lawsuit “contesting the NYPD’s surveillance of Muslims in New Jersey” filed by the Center for Constitutional Rights and Muslim Advocates – the very group Loretta Lynch spoke to.
