At least $300,000 was granted by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations to Gen-Z for Change (previously known as TikTok for Biden) in 2022, for the purpose of producing social media content that would both support President Joe Biden and advocate for radical leftist movements.
This information was revealed by public documents reviewed by the New York Post.
The Open Society Foundations had already provided $5.5 million to Accelerate Action Inc., another nonprofit dedicated to helping citizens organize politically, especially within minority communities, in 2020 and 2021.
According to the latest publicly available tax records, Accelerate Action was the only nonprofit to donate funds to Gen-Z for Change, an organization that uses social media platforms to drive progressive change and promote causes such as climate justice, workers’ rights and economic justice, gender equality and reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, Indigenous rights and racial justice.
Gen-Z for Change is strongly advocating for universal health care, eliminating medical debt, instituting red flag laws pertaining to firearm ownership, and banning voter ID laws.
They are also in favor of granting asylum to all refugees, abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, defunding the police, ending cash bail, and opposing conservatives’ attempts to prohibit critical race theory curricula from public schools.
“Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin created a tipline for teachers, including ‘critical race theory,’ in their curriculum. Critical race theory, a sociological framework, is weaponized by Republicans to sensationalize a huge nothing-burger. Simply put, Republicans do not want an accurate depiction of race relations in the United States. So, to avoid making teachers’ jobs more difficult, and to troll bigoted Republicans, we created code that people could use to spam the tiplines with lyrics of songs or whatever they imagined,” the group boasted.
Last year, Biden’s administration informed Gen-Z TikTok users about the United States’ endeavors in Ukraine, and they were invited to the White House to observe Biden sign the Inflation Reduction Act. However, it is unknown how this group has spread out Soros’ resources according to The Post.
Upstate New York Republican Representative Elise Stefanik mentioned to the outlet that, “George Soros is financing the next generation of far-left activists on a platform that is under China’s Communist Party.”
The Open Society Foundations emphasized their commitment to promoting civic participation by asserting that “more, rather than fewer, voters, including among younger and historically marginalized communities” should be empowered through free and fair elections.
Despite multiple requests for comment from the Post, Gen-Z for Change’s founder Aidan Kohn-Murphy did not respond.
