U.S. State Department promotes Soros’ political group’s agenda – to high school children


The State Department has offered grant-funds for an exchange program to teach UK high school students about fighting hate and extremism, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
In the grant description, the U.S. embassy in London lists controversial progressive groups, including George Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)as “organizations of interest” for implementing the program.

State Dept. endorses Soros

The grant, posted to grants.gov on January 12, outlines a plan to fund an exchange program for British students to come to America to learn about fighting “violent extremism and radicalization.”  The grant will award an amount ranging from $50,000 to $75,000 to a single organization to implement the Youth Exchange on Social Cohesion program.
The Embassy of the United States in London invites eligible organizations to submit proposals to develop and implement a 14 to 21-day group exchange program to the United States for up to 10 UK-based high school aged participants to focus on efforts in the U.S. to counter hate crimes and build community resilience to conflict. With a strong focus on community and engagement with American interlocutors, UK participants will immerse themselves in U.S. society through discussions, dialogue groups, workshops, site visits and professional appointments.
Among those organizations listed to implement the program are the OSF and SPLC.
The program’s objectives are to “prevent violent extremism and radicalization by encouraging the building of strong, resilient communities” and to exchange “best practices in the U.S. and UK to support social cohesion.”
The program invites British citizens, ages 15 to 18, to America to “exchange ideas on how communities in the U.S. and UK promote hope and inclusion while standing up to hate and extremism.” Participants “will travel to three to four states to explore programs promoting tolerance and inclusion in communities and schools”, where they will “be exposed to both diverse and vibrant urban communities.”

Far-left groups

Both organizations have attracted a fair bit of controversy.
The SPLC has come under criticism for labeling conservative groups “hateful” just for endorsing traditional viewpoints. The group is being sued by a British Muslim activist, Maajid Nawaz, for labeling him an “Islamophobe” over his criticism of radical Islam. An evangelical church also filed suit for defamation this summer.
The organization has a notorious “hate map” that tracks organizations promoting conservative wrong-think. The map runs the gamut from genuinely hateful groups, such as the Ku Klux Klan, to traditionally-oriented Christian churches.
The Open Society Foundation bankrolls progressive projects and activism in countries around the globe.
Its billionaire leader, Hungarian-born Soros, is locked in a protracted struggle with the leader of Hungary, Viktor Orban. Orban blames Soros for trying to repatriate millions of refugees into Europe.
That the U.S. government is endorsing these groups is troubling.
