Lately, Iraq War architect and neoconservative family prince Bill Kristol has been enjoying a career second wind as a “principled conservative” token of the left, receiving pure adulation from MSNBC liberals for denunciations of American nationalism and the Trump administration.
It seems Kristol’s political travel comes with a hefty financial incentive. In a report from American Greatness’ Julie Kelly, it was revealed that Kristol’s umbrella organization ‘Defending Democracy Together’ has recieved at least $600,000 from eBay founder and progressive billionaire sugar daddy Pierre Omidyar.
Omidyar is known as a prolific funder of Democratic and progressive organizations and causes. A 2014 report of the Media Research Center placed him on the highest tier elite liberal donors, comparable to “Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Pierre Omidyar, Tom Steyer, and Jonathan Soros.”
The latter is the son of the “charitable” kingpin, George Soros. Omidyar himself has donated extensively to Soros’ Open Society Foundations to the tunes of millions- meaning that Kristol, a supposed “conservative,” finds himself financially tied to Soros.
Kristol first came to prominence in the early 2000’s as a passionate advocate for global government, regime change and liberal internationalism. The adoption of his policy preferences would have terrible consequences for the United States, which was sucked into a disastrous war in Iraq on their false premises. Despite the costly human and geopolitical consequences, Kristol has never apologized or denounced his demands for war, and claimed as late as 2015 that the United States was “right to fight in Iraq.”
None of this has prevented Kristol from taking a spotlight on the progressive left as a prominent Trump critic, distracting from his policy record with a series of viral tweets and Russia conspiracy theories. He continues his advocacy for war, even brazenly calling for the United States to push for regime change in China, a nation with a population of 1.35 billion people.
