Once you understand how the Grand Old Party establishment has operated since before there even was a Grand Old Party, the strangeness of certain strange bedfellows no longer comes as a shock. But for the enlightenment of those who thought there was much difference between certain candidates, at least where it counts, consider the following from a report by Breitbart.com.
The man who was by far the top donor for Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign—the man who Breitbart says made that campaign happen—is now helping George Soros fund an ad campaign targeted at convincing Christians to support leftist immigration reform.
Soros created and funds the National Immigration Forum (NIF). But the NIF knows it won’t get far with conservatives as long as its association with Soros is so apparent. So, it created a “neutral”-appearing front group—one that sounds friendly to Evangelicals: the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT). According to Breitbart, the EIT is not even its own legal entity, but purely a front for the NIF.
Nevertheless, billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Singer, formerly the bellwether donor behind Romney, is now hand-in-hand with Soros on this matter.
The USA Today piece linked by Breitbart headlines the EIT merely as an “Evangelical group.” It reveals that the front is spending $400,000 of donors’, including Singer’s, money to run pro-“gang of eight” ads on Christian radio stations.
And what type of Christian message do you think the EIT has for you Christians? Well, another Soros front known as Jim Wallis is listed as a board member and “head” of the EIT. Wallis’s ministry Sojourners exists to present leftist ideology in language acceptable—desirable—to evangelical Christians. The language is the spoonful of sugar to help the poison go down.
Ironically, Singer decided to back Romney only because his first choice, Chris Christie, decided not to run in 2012. Guess what to look for in 2016. And guess how conservative that “choice” will really be.
And speaking of “conservative” establishment, corporate welfarist, and corporate crony organizations, my friend Michael Patrick Leahy has revealed the U.S. Chamber of Commerce—often confused for a conservative, business-friendly organization—has also helped fund the EIT.
So beware Christians: the Grand Old establishment has long since used you as a political tool, but now sees you as so gullible, pliable, and dumb that it can openly join forces with the left when it so desires and move you right along as well.
Again, once you understand that they’re not really on your side, the strangeness of the bedfellows seems more rational than strange. The only thing strange, then, is why so many Christian leaders and would-be leaders demand we support those fellows, too.
