Look who’s funding the ‘transgender’ War on Normal
George Soros has his fingers in many pies, most of them made with the money he has gained from decades of speculation on the parasitic financial markets. From the ‘refugee’ flooding of Europe to the funding of ‘coloured revolutions’, from the Arab Spring to the coup and civil war in Ukraine, to Black Lives Matter and the attempt to put the crooked warmonger Hillary Clinton in the White House, if there’s a ‘progressive’ leftist assault on our civilisation, odds are you’ll find George Soros and his money behind it. He’s a one-man cultural Marxist revolution.
And last Thursday say a remarkable article in the Washington Times, which unveiled another aspect of Soros’ Long War on Christian values . Entitled “The Money Behind the Transgender Movement”, it explores how, having paved the way for the ‘gay marriage’ assault on the family, Soros swiftly moved on to the next target in the War on Normal, “transsexual rights”.
It took two-plus years, but seemingly out of nowhere to many conservatives, the transgender bathroom debate exploded this summer after North Carolina legislators passed a bill that required people to use bathrooms matching their sex assigned at birth. The Justice Department intervened, calling such a law a violation of the Civil Rights Act, and the media went wild — it was their new civil rights movement.
It was a debate that had been percolating at the state level for years.
So what made North Carolina the tipping point? Well-funded LGBT organizers had success in California, giving them a blueprint to work in other states, and it’s an election year. North Carolina is a battleground state with presidential implications, and liberals love fighting the cultural wars. It was President Obama who lit the match, after all.
The bathroom debate started in California, where the Gay Straight Alliance Network, an organization based in Oakland, has been lobbying hard for transgender rights. The group is a “next-generation LGBTQ racial and gender justice organization that empowers … allied youth leaders to advocate, organize, and mobilize an intersectional movement,” according to its website.
They’ve created Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs in more than 61 percent of California school’s and have advocated for and achieved 11 pro-LGBT laws in the state, including a 2013 bill that allowed students to join sports teams and use the bathroom of their gender preference.
The GSA helped organize groups in North Carolina.
They helped craft LGBT curriculum in accordance with the University of North Carolina’s LEARN NC program to teach and talk about the issue. They helped create an action guide that gave LGBT activists a blueprint for lobbying, including what hashtags to use on social media, and how to file complaints with the U.S. Office for Civil Rights.
In 2013, Mr. Soros‘ gave GSA $100,000.
The Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Community Center also received $130,000 from Mr. Soros that year. Their Leadership Lab was published in the journal Science this spring, that evaluated the impact that door-to-door canvassing can have on reducing transphobia. It’s being used as national model.
The Global Action for Trans Equality (GATE), headquartered in New York, received $244,000 from Mr. Soros. It’s main purpose is to pull all the LGBT organizations together in order to create a louder megaphone, laying out best practices and fundraising advice.
So what’s next for the movement?
Mr. Soros‘ IRS Form 990 gives us some clues.
He’s funded a Streetwise and Safe organization in New York, with the purpose of supporting a “national project focused on increasing safety for LGBTQ youth during interactions with law enforcement and developing advocacy skills to engage debates around discriminatory policing practices,” according to his 2014 tax return.
