American billionaire investor and philanthropist pledged $500 million to a private liberal arts college in New York, one of the largest single donations given to a university in higher education history, the school said.
Billionaire George Soros is up to something else – he’s got a new plan – and this time I hope everyone pays close attention – because, in a few years, it’s gonna matter.
The private liberal arts college in New York, called the $500 million pledged a “transformational” gift that would be among the largest ever given to higher education in the United States.
Bard College President Leon Botstein said Thursday in the announcement, “This is the most historic moment since the college’s founding in 1860.”
Soros’s donation is one of the largest single donations given to a university in higher education history.
In addition to the pledge from Soros, the school announced it raised $250 million for its endowment and plans to raise another $250 million over the next five years.
The money will establish a new $1 billion endowment that will support “the college’s full array of student financial aid, faculty, and program,” the school said, adding it will also “enable the college to sustain its mission and to grow its international profile.”
Soros previously pledged $1 billion to help establish the Open Society University Network, which globally connects educational institutions to integrate curricula and encourage civic engagement among students. Bard College is one of the founding partners of the network.
Well, there’s always been something highly suspicious about George Soros plan as some sort of evil mastermind behind a diabolical web of international political conspiracies. Infact, Soros is a major financial donor to Democratic Party politicians, but, since when have Republicans ever been opposed to billionaires making enormous contributions to political campaigns? After all, Republicans were enthusiastic supporters of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision that unleashed unlimited campaign donations from billionaires allowing a tiny group of ultra-wealthy individuals to gain overwhelming influence over American politics.
So, if Soros isn’t a satanic demon for contributing to Democrats, which, after all, is still legal in America even under Donald Trump, what is it that makes Soros so nefarious? The media also describe Soros as a major contributor to “liberal causes,” but that, too, is a misnomer.
