A letter signed by 26 so-called civil rights groups demanding that top advertisers boycott Twitter if its new owner, Elon Musk, rolls back its current censorship policies has been traced to George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Hussein Obama, in addition to the nation’s top teachers’ union and labor union.

The letter was signed by the following groups:

  • Access Now
  • Accountable Tech
  • Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation
  • Center for Countering Digital Hate
  • Empowering Pacific Islander Communities (EPIC)
  • Face the Music Collective
  • Fair Vote UK
  • Free Press
  • Friends of the Earth
  • Gender Equity Policy Institute
  • GLAAD
  • Global Project Against Hate and Extremism
  • Indivisible Northern Nevada
  • Kairos
  • Media Matters for America
  • MediaJustice
  • NARAL Pro-Choice America
  • National Hispanic Media Coalition
  • Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice
  • Reproaction
  • Stop Online Violence Against Women Inc
  • The Sparrow Project
  • UltraViolet
  • Union of Concerned Scientists
  • V-Day/One Billion Rising
  • Women’s March

After word of the letter emerged Tuesday, Musk called for someone to investigate “who funds these organizations.”

Of the 26 groups, three of them had their logos imprinted at the top of the letter: Accountable Tech, Media Matters for America, and Ultraviolet. All three are far-left groups.

Accountable Tech

“Accountable Tech is a Washington DC-based group led by Nicole Gill, a political campaigner and founder of the 2017 Tax March, and Jesse Lehrich, a former foreign policy spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the nephew of David Axelrod, former senior adviser to Barack Obama,” according to the Daily Mail.

Media Matters for America

Media Matters is a far-left propaganda group founded in 2004 by David Brock, whom Politico in 2017 described as a “Clinton enforcer who raised tens of millions of dollars and created a far-reaching web of outside groups to push her presidential candidacy.”

Recall that Clinton originally ran for president in 2008.

“Media Matters is funded by a coalition of donors, including the National Education Association – America’s largest union, representing teachers and other school staff,” according to the Daily Mail.

The far-left propaganda group is also funded by Soros.

“George Soros announced that he has given $1 million to Media Matters ‘to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast,'” Politico reported on Oct. 20th, 2010.

Ultraviolet

UltraViolet is a far-left feminist group infamous for organizing protests during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s contentious confirmation hearings four years ago.

“The group is … backed by several unions – among them the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), and the American Federation of Teachers. … UltraViolet is backed by numerous family foundations, including that founded by Warren Buffet’s son Peter, NoVo Foundation. … It is also supported by one of the many Pritzker family’s foundations, Libra,” according to the Daily Mail.

Ultraviolet was founded by Nita Chaudhary, who used to work with MoveOn, a left-wing group that’s notorious for its connections to Soros.

Remaining Groups

Access Now is a group that claims it “defends and extends the digital rights of users at risk around the world.” Yet for some reason, it stands against free speech. The Daily Mail notes that its second-largest donor is Soros’ infamous Open Society Foundations.

The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation is a disgraced group that purports to fight for black civil rights but has a record of collecting donations, many from prominent corporations, and then using them to fund the lavish lifestyles of the group’s founders. The group has also been funded by Soros:

Responding to word that Soros’ money is behind many of the groups that signed the letter, Musk posted a tweet late Tuesday urging Soros to “slide” into his DMs. It’s believed he was mocking the billionaire.

While the letter signed by these groups doesn’t explicitly contain the term “boycott,” it bears the hallmarks of a boycott campaign.

“Under Musk’s management, Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of
misinformation, with your brand attached, polluting our information ecosystem
in a time where trust in institutions and news media is already at an all-time low.
Your ad dollars can either fund Musk’s vanity project or hold him to account. We
call on you to demand Musk uphold these basic standards of community trust
and safety, and to pull your advertising spending from Twitter if they are not,” the letter reads.

Some of so-called “basic standards of community trust and safety” include keeping banned accounts banned and letting “privacy experts” view Twitter’s algorithm so they can “put protections in place to prevent bad actors from gaming the system.”
