Right-wing Christian groups in the United States spent at least $50 million (56 million) on supporting far-right activists and campaigns in Europe in recent years, according to an investigative report.
Publicly available financial filings showed 15 conservative non-profit organizations spent some $51 million in Europe from 2008 to 2017, the report by UK-based openDemocracy found.
The filings did not detail what the money was spent on, but openDemocracy said the groups used it to:
The chief counsel of one of the American Center for Law and Justice, Jay Sekulow, is one of US President Donald Trumps top lawyers.
Meanwhile, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has received millions of dollars in donations from a foundation linked to the billionaire family of Betsy DeVos, Trumps education secretary.
A third organization listed in the report, the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, has collaborated with a Rome-based, right-wing think tank affiliated with far-right campaigner Steve Bannon.

“Far right” = any groups which are not marxiist and/or not globalist, correct?
They are trying to educate the Europeans, but the EU appears to be too stupid to catch on.
It’s more of a demonstration of how radical the ideologues running the EU are.
“Right-wing Christian groups in the United States spent at least $50 million (56 million) on supporting far-right activists and campaigns in Europe in recent years...”
You are welcome....
Yeah, it’s a german source, so I’m guessing “far right” means people who don’t have a felony record, earn their own living instead of mooching off the government, and go to church on Sunday.
Where do these “White Nationalists” get $50 million?
Most of the photos I see of guys at White Nationalist rallies look like they struggle to pay their rent every month!

Ah, American conservatives' favorite atheist, who gets a pass because her atheism is primarily aimed against islam!
Perhaps we should ally with homosexuals in the moslem world as well???
“openDemocracy”, a child of George Soros’ OpenSociety”, has published yet another FAKE study...
The usual fools rush to praise it...
Hence the too-close resemblance to how the Soros-funded SPLC did things.
From a Marxist viewpoint, an atheistic mind is already three-fourths conquered.The above always comes to mind, though, whenever I read that someone is an atheist.

$50 Million is chump change for George Soros... and even less for the EU elites in Brussels... This is an odd article...
It’s not Soros who spent that amount.
