George Soros, a far-left billionaire, has given financial support to a radical group that aims to take over the US Supreme Court. The group is waging a war in support of a controversial policy that is unpopular with Americans.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the Open Society Foundation, which is headed by philanthropist George Soros, gave $4.5 million to the group Demand Justice in 2021. The group is focused on advocating for court reform. In 2018, the Open Society also gave $2.5 million to the same organization, which was established after the group opposed the nomination of Judge Christine Barrett to the Supreme Court.
In recent years, various activist groups, such as Demand Justice, have suffered significant defeats. After Donald Trump's appointment of three new Supreme Court justices, the court became more conservative, resulting in the overturning of Roe v. Wade, as well as decisions on immigration and gun rights.
Due to the leaked decision in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson, the Supreme Court's security was increased, and the justices were placed under more scrutiny. However, Brian Fallon, the head of Demand Justice, argued that the high court should remove the protective fencing around the court. He also suggested that rioters and protesters be allowed to physically confront the justices.
After the leaked draft decision of the Supreme Court was publicized, Brian Fallon praised the court for its transparency. He noted that the public should be able to see the decisions of the high court. The protests led to the attempted assassination of Justice Michael S. Kennedy. A California man was apprehended after he tried to attack the justice outside his home in Maryland. He confessed that he was motivated by his desire to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Before and after the controversial decision in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson, various far-left activists called for the Supreme Court to expand its size. One of the proposals that was made by House Democrats, led by Jerry Nadler of New York, was to add four more justices to the court. This would bring the number of conservative justices to seven.
Various proposals to change the composition of the Supreme Court have failed to gain popularity due to the overwhelming opposition from Americans.
