George Soros Group Pumps Cash into ‘Defund the Police’ Campaigns
Group openly supports 'defund the police' movement
A group that supports the 'defund the police' movement and received funding from globalist billionaire George Soros, is now campaigning for Democrat Senate candidate Raphael Warnock.
The group is pushing Warnock in a Georgia run-off race which could determine which party controls the U.S. Senate.
The group tweeted Monday:
“Team WFP is kicking off our runoff election text banking for @ReverendWarnock in Georgia TONIGHT from 6-9pm ET. Join us! https://wfpus.org/warnock."
Warnock is running against incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA).
Currently, Democrats and Republicans are tied 48-48 for control of the U.S. Senate.
Democrats are pushing to take control of the upper chamber and the House in order to push massive reforms in a prospective Biden administration
But a Senate controlled by Republicans would provide a backstop against that.
Though Warnock’s campaign does not push to defund the police, Working Families Party has openly called for such actions.
The group tweeted in September:
“End white supremacy. Transform this country. Defund the police."
A month prior, ot tweeted “the only way to stop police violence is to defund the police and instead create, uplift and fund the community services that keep Black people safe, healthy and free.”

A Soros-funded Democracy PAC sent $1 million to the party earlier this year, Politico reported.
It also has a charter that calls for shifting “resources away from policing, jails and detention centers, endless wars and agencies that separate families.”
“Shift resources into schools, housing, healthcare and jobs, to enable all people – especially Black and brown people, immigrants, and Indigenous people – to thrive.”
Neon Nettle reported earlier this year that a group called the Organized Communities Against Deportation (OCAD) was also associated with Soros and pushed the 'defund the police' movement.
In July, George Soros' Open Society Foundations announced $220 million donations to radical Black Lives Matter justice organizations across the US.
The most significant share of the investment is $150 million, which will be via grants to black-led organizations focused on racial equality, the organization announced at the time.
The Open Society Foundations added that donations aid the movement to “end policing as we know it.”
