Those wondering where all this woke stuff is suddenly coming from ( it litteraly is everywhere, right down to the schools of the littlest ones ), now get an answer. Georges Soros.
Leftist billionaire George Soros admitted on 1 August 2022 that he supports woke justice prosecutors with millions of dollars and vowed not to stop supporting woke justice officers despite urban crime spikes.
This agenda includes prioritizing criminal justice system resources to protect people from violent crime. It insists on treating drug addiction as a disease, not as a crime. And it seeks to end the criminalization of poverty and mental illness," he wrote, later adding hereto : "the goal is not to relieve the police, but to restore trust between the police and the controlled ones, a partnership that promotes solving crimes."
Soros published his opinion piece at a time when there was opposition to lax prosecutors, leading San Francisco voters to recall District Attorney Chesa Boudin because of spikes in shoplifting, open-air drug trafficking and broad daylight robberies, often against Asian Americans. On the coast in Los Angeles, another recall is against District Attorney George Gascon - who received almost $3 million in campaign funds from Soros.
Closer to home, Bragg - whose campaign received $1 million from Soros through the political action committee Color of Change - is under fire for releasing serious criminals and prosecuting ordinary New Yorkers for defending themselves.
