This shouldn’t be all that surprising but some interesting information has been uncovered by several media outlets today – the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), the Ford Foundation, the Kellogg Foundation, the Services Employees International Union (SEIU), and various other organizations have been discovered funneling money to George Soros and other far-left fundraisers.
While the information shouldn’t be shocking as many of these groups have already been known to lean left, it does paint a picture of corporate America hell-bent on seeing our Republic transformed into a socialist oligarchy, run by massively wealthy oligarchs like Soros.
“A prominent anti-Trump ‘resistance’ organization” and several other leftist groups receive direct donations from the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA).
2ndVote has found the NFLPA provides financial support to the Center for Community Change Action, which according to the Washington Free Beacon, “has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after the November elections.” 2ndVote’s research team found the NFL Players Association is identified as an organization that donates in support of the center’s work in the latest available annual report.
The Center for Community Change (CCC) funded the “Families Fight Back” campaign which mobilized Latinos against the Trump campaign for President, they also support United We Dream which advocates for “Sanctuary Campuses” in direct opposition to the Trump administration’s efforts to enforce our immigration laws. The CCC also donates annually to Planned Parenthood, meaning that the NFLPA is literally paying to kill children. Google is also partnering with Planned Parenthood and will soon be hosting an awards ceremony for the abortion giant, where another liberal billionaire, Tom Steyer, will be honored for his efforts to see more people killed through environmental regulations.
2ndVote has uncovered the NFLPA has financially supported at least two more left-wing, anti-Trump activist groups. Two of the union’s last three tax filings (2013, 2015) show donations to Working America, a Steyer-supported organization that used Craigslist in Cleveland, Ohio to apparently recruit paid activists to protest the 2016 GOP convention. The NFLPA’s 2014 tax filing shows a donation to Jobs With Justice, another organization backed by Soros that actively opposes the president’s tax cuts.
As the Washington Free Beacon reports the NFLPA is linked to various other groups as major donors to far-left causes:
The Center for Community Change’s largest contribution was $3,000,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which was initially created by Will Kellogg, the food manufacturer and founder of Kellogg Company. The Ford Foundation, which was first created by the founders of the Ford Motor Company, added a $2,350,000 donation. The Open Society Foundation, a foundation run by liberal billionaire mega-donor George Soros, gave $1,750,000 to the Center for Community Change.
Other donors to the organization include the California Endowment, which gave $524,500; the Marquerite Casey Foundation, which gave $515,000; Fidelity Charitable Gift, which donated $505,100 (Note: Fidelity itself did not donate, this figure reflects private individuals who used the company as a charitable vehicle for their own donations.); and the National Immigration Law Center, which gave $316,000.
The Center for Community Change Action, the “social welfare” (c)(4) arm of the group, additionally relies on a handful of donors for almost all of its funding, according to its documents that do not include the privacy redactions.
The point is this, there are many large corporations donating significant amounts of money to far-left anti-American causes and they’re getting that money from us, their customers.
Do we really want to be the funding source for men like George Soros, and genocidal groups like Planned Parenthood? If you don’t want your hard-earned dollars working to push our nation over a leftist cliff, then you may want to make sure that your avoiding spending money with corporations like Kellogg’s, Ford, the NFL, and the like. Every dollar spent with them is another dollar that goes straight into the coffers of these far-left fascists who are hell-bent on running and ruining our future.
