According to the New York Post, George Soros’ fund sent at least $300,000 to Generation Z TikTok activists in 2022 so they could post social media messages endorsing President Biden and pushing the extreme, communist agenda.
The Post obtained access to public records that show Soros’ Open Society Foundations awarded Accelerate Action Inc., a charity committed to executing “new models for citizen organization, particularly among areas of color,” $5.5 million throughout 2020 and 2021. In 2022, the group gave at least $300,000 to an additional charity called Gen-Z for Change, which used to be called TikTok for Biden.
The Post said that the most recent tax records that were available to the public showed that Accelerate Action had been the only charity that gave money to Gen-Z for Change.
Gen-Z for Change calls itself an organization of “young activists who actually use social media sites to make positive social changes,” according to its official website. The organization uses social media to “push for positive change as well as hold people in power accountable.”
Democratic concerns such as “climate justice,” “gender equality and reproductive rights,” “Indigenous rights,” “workers’ rights and economic justice,” and “racial justice” are supported by the group.
Gen-Z for Change tries to get young people to vote for things like national health care, getting rid of costly medical debt, red-flag regulations for gun ownership, and getting rid of voter ID requirements. The young activists also want to give protection to all refugees, get rid of U.S. ICE, stop giving money to the cops, and do away with cash bail.
The group has criticized Republicans for trying to stop public schools from teaching critical race theory.
“Governor Glenn Youngkin of Virginia made a guide for teachers that includes ‘critical race theory’ in their lessons. Critical race theory is a social concept that Republicans use to make a huge non-story into a big deal. Simply put, Republicans don’t want a true picture of how people of different races get along in the U.S. So, to not make teachers’ jobs harder and to troll racist Republicans, we made a code that anyone could use for flooding the tiplines with some song lyrics or anything else they could think of,” the group said.
Last year, Biden’s office told Gen-Z TikTok users about what the country was doing in Ukraine. They were also allowed to witness Biden signing the Inflation Reduction Act at the White House.
The Post said it’s not clear exactly how the group has spent Soros’s money.
“George Soros is sponsoring the next batch of far-left activists on a site that is linked to the Chinese Communist Party,” according to Rep. Elise Stefanik, a Republican from Upstate New York, who spoke with the publication.
A spokeswoman for the Open Society Foundations stated to the Post, “We think that more, not fewer, voters, including younger people and people from groups that have been left out in the past, should be able to join in America’s democracy through elections that are fair and free. We’re happy to help groups that use new tools to get more people involved in their communities and help make societies that are more fair, open, and inclusive.”
