Soros and GE bribe NY poor

May 14, 2009

Soros Helps New York Charity Raise Record With $50 Million Gift is the headline for Bloomberg. The NY Times puts it this way Soros giving millions to city’s Robin Hood foundation.

I suppose it’s nice when Soros and Tom Brokow can work together on something. NBC and Soros so seldom see eye to eye on anything. Turns out Brokow is on the board of the Robin Hood Foundation, which has given ACORN over $820,000. Geoffry Immelt, CEO of GE, and Jeff Zucker, president of NBC, are also on the board.

So, a foundation that’s ostensible goal is to help the poor, but which really funnels money to Democrat get-out-the-vote efforts, got $50 million from George Soros. No surprise, really. But it bugs me that they do it in the name of Robin Hood. Robin Hood did not primarily rob from the rich and give to the poor. (Which, by the way, is a hilarious position for Soros and most of these board members to endorse). Robin Hood supported the good King Richard; his real foe was corruption, especially corruption in government. Robin Hood fought to stop government from taking property. He lived as an Outlaw in the King’s forest, and killed the King’s deer.  Are Soros and the GE folks really using this foundation to support honest and limited government? It looks to me that they’re trying to buy the support of the poor, while they really funnel the money to Democratic groups.
