Billionaire Democratic donor George Soros is funding an army of Gen Z TikTokers to push his far-left causes, praise President Joe Biden and attack conservatives, a review of public documents and social media by The Post shows.
Soros’ Open Society Foundation disbursed $5.5 million to the nonprofit Accelerate Action Inc. in 2020 and 2021, which in turn donated at least $300,000 in 2022 to another nonprofit, Gen Z for Change, which has a network of 500 “activists, organizers, and creators,” the tax returns show.
Woke foot soldiers regularly go into battle in the name of abolishing border enforcement, defunding the police and ending cash bail, according to their website.
Throughout his term, President Biden has turned to Generation Z for Change and other social media stars to sell his political agenda.
In March 2022, senior White House officials briefed them on the ongoing U.S. effort in Ukraine.
They chatted with Surgeon General Vivek Murthy about the coronavirus and met with Biden in the Oval Office, the Washington Post reported.
The confabulations were the subject of a Saturday Night Live Cold Open that same month.

In recognition of their contributions, Generation Z for Change was invited to the white house to witness the signing of the Inflation Reduction Law.
It’s unclear how Gen Z for Change distributes Soros’ money among its core group of influential young activists whose accounts are littered with White House and far-left talking points.
“We unequivocally support Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, Palestinian liberation, [and] a lot of progressive policies that a large majority of Gen Z supports,” the group’s founder, Aidan Kohn-Murphy, told his 288,000 TikTok followers in a message Wednesday.
Kohn-Murphy himself has overseen partnerships with the White House and the Democratic National Committee, according to his spokesperson office.
