Ingraham: Far-Left Billionaires Soros, Steyer Uniting to Remake America
They're bankrolling 'radical' candidates, Ingraham says.
In her "Angle" commentary on Wednesday, Laura Ingraham said far-left billionaires and big Democratic donors George Soros and Tom Steyer are uniting to remake America in their vision.
She noted that both Soros and Steyer put their money behind Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in the Democratic Florida gubernatorial primary.
Gillum -- an unabashed progressive who supports universal health care, legalized marijuana, abolishing ICE and impeaching President Trump -- captured the nomination, to the surprise of many.
Ingraham said that Soros -- who has funded the liberal Center for American Progress, MoveOn.org and the Open Society Foundation -- spent $25 million on Hillary Clinton and other leftist candidates and causes during the 2016 campaign cycle, and has already spent $15 million on Democratic candidates and causes this year.
She said that Steyer, a San Francisco-based financier and philanthropist who has run ads encouraging people to sign a Trump impeachment petition, has promised to spend at least $30 million to elect progressives, which makes him "the single most important Democratic donor in the United States."
"Like Soros, Steyer is not content to support the Democrat ... establishment," Ingraham said. "[He's] bankrolling far-left radicals who will upend the political system. That's where his mind is."
"Steyer is using his billions to ensure the candidacy of newly-minted socialists who he hopes will swamp America, the whole electoral landscape, for the Democrats," she added.
She said Florida is a critical state, because they believe if they can take the Sunshine State, they can also take the presidency in 2020.
"Here's the irony: Both Soros and Steyer, of course, made all their dough being aggressive capitalists," Ingraham said. "Now that they have billions, they want to spread the gospel of socialism that is devastating countries like Venezuela and Nicaragua."
She said it would be foolish, however, to dismiss the socialist wave as a passing fad, and conservatives must redouble their efforts to educate young people about the "false promises and dangers of socialism."
"And we have to support conservative candidates ... to repel this leftist advance. If we don't act now, you can expect Tom Steyer's impeachment petition to grow, grow longer and longer."
