Pro-Palestinian Protests Backed by “Biden’s Biggest Donors,” Politico Admits

Pro-Palestinian protest groups overrunning university campuses across the country are backed by some of Joe Biden’s biggest donors, including George Soros, Bill Gates, and David Rockefeller Jr., Politico reported on Sunday.

Ironic, given the demonstrators calling Biden “Genocide Joe” are receiving financial backing from the same globalists pushing hard for his reelection.

From Politico:

The donors include some of the biggest names in Democratic circles: Gates, Soros, Rockefeller and Pritzker, according to a POLITICO analysis.

Two of the main organizers behind protests at Columbia University and on other campuses are Jewish Voice for Peace and IfNotNow. Both are supported by the Tides Foundation, which is seeded by Democratic megadonor George Soros as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and it in turn supports numerous small nonprofits that work for social change. (Gates did not return a request for comment, and Soros declined to comment.)

Another notable Democratic donor whose philanthropy has helped fund the protest movement is David Rockefeller Jr., who sits on the board of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. In 2022, the fund gave $300,000 to the Tides Foundation; according to nonprofit tax forms, Tides has given nearly $500,000 over the past five years to Jewish Voice for Peace, which explicitly describes itself as anti-Zionist.

Several other groups involved in pro-Palestinian protests are backed by a foundation funded by Susan and Nick Pritzker, heir to the Hyatt Hotel empire — and supporters of Biden and numerous Democratic campaigns, including $6,600 to the Biden Victory Fund a few months ago and more than $300,000 during the 2020 campaign.

Biden last week condemned the protests backed by his own donors that at times have become violent.

“Destroying property is not a peaceful protest, it’s against the law,” Biden said. “Vandalism, trespassing, breaking windows, shutting down campuses, forcing the cancellation of classes and graduation, none of this is a peaceful protest.”

Politico explained that Democrat politics are sometimes at odds with leftist causes, and the Israel-Gaza conflict is the latest example.

“The trail of donations shows a series of blurred lines when it comes to liberal causes and Democratic politics,” the outlet reported. “Often those missions are aligned, but they also sometimes have different and — particularly when it comes to Gaza — conflicting agendas and tactics. And a small group of wealthy heavyweights are often playing an outsize role funding many of them.”

“Some advisers to left-leaning causes say that’s just part of the way things work when it comes to philanthropic giving,” Politico added.

The report must embarrass pundits like Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto, who argued on Friday that Soros had nothing to do with the campus protests.

Of course, Infowars was reporting on Soros’ and other prominent leftists’ involvement in these radical protests weeks ago:
