Skip to comments.Zuckerberg Donates $250 Million to Turn Out the Vote in Liberal, Pro-Hillary Counties

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, recently donated $250 million to the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), a progressive election organization that has already funded Democrat stronghold districts with millions in preparation for Novembers elections.
In the announcement on their website, the CTCL stated that they will regrant the donation to local election jurisdictions across the country to help ensure that they have the staffing, training, and equipment necessary for a safe election process this November in light of COVID-19 concerns.
While CTCLs intentions appear pure at first glance (they state at the end of their announcement that any local election office is invited to apply for a grant), a deeper look into their history and associations indicates that they have a very partisan agenda.
The CTCL recently donated $16.3 million to six cities, all of which voted heavily for the Democrat ticket in the last presidential election. Philadelphia is receiving $10 million of those grants, with the remaining $6.3 million being distributed among Wisconsins five largest cities: Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha, and Racine. Combined, these cities cast over 82% of their 1 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Much of these donations are being specifically allocated toward
Influence Watch calls the CTCL an election reform advocacy group whose political ideology is left-of-center. Their founders have previously worked at New Organizing Institute, which was dedicated to training progressive groups and Democratic campaigns, and whose executive director led the data departments for both Obama presidential campaigns.
CTCLs partners and funders include progressive groups such as the Skoll Foundation, the Democracy Fund, the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation, and Rock the Vote (which, might I remind our readers, released the progressive Turn Out For What video featuring Lil John and Lena Dunham for the 2014 midterm elections).
VOTE NOW IN OUR 2020 PRESIDENTIAL POLL In response to CTCLs efforts in Democrat stronghold districts in Wisconsin, Wisconsin Voters Alliance has filed an election complaint with the Wisconsin Election Commission.
From the press release, published to Got Freedoms website:
These grants are intentionally limited to these heavily Democratic areas for the purpose of boosting voter turnout there in a clear effort to sway the election statewide.
The complaint argues that cities have accepted the CTCL moneys without coordination with the state legislature to ensure statewide uniformity in inducing people to vote. Additionally, the CTCL donations are targeted to urban electors to the exclusion of surburban electors and rural electors.
The complaint also raises concerns about Zuckerbergs donation, arguing that if Zuckerbergs $250 million is used in the same way as the $6.3 million the CTCL recently donated to Wisconsin cities, these funds will dwarf city election funds, creating a dramatic disparity in voting opportunity and, as indicated by previous grants, the funds will allow city governments to create a partisan advantage.
The complaint further argues that these efforts raise alarms about the integrity of the November election and demonstrates a present danger in allowing private groups to influence elections, pointing out that the donations were not made to election offices, but to city governments directly.
Got Freedoms website published both the press release and the complaint to raise awareness of efforts to undermine election integrity this November.
Phill Kline, Director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, representing the Wisconsin Voters Alliance, said that these efforts to sway elections through the voting process are not new to American history:
Weve seen government playing favorites in elections before. Through much of last century, southern states made it difficult for blacks to vote and easy for white citizens to vote, promoting racism in the manner they orchestrated their elections. Government targeting a demographic to increase turnout is the opposite side of the same coin as targeting a demographic to suppress the vote.
The complainants are requesting an expedited proceeding due to the emergency threat to the integrity of the general election this November.
I thought “he who shall not be named” got the big money out of politics. The way progressives shovel money into politics is criminal IMHO.
Funding the massive voter fraud to come.
While Facebook oppreses discussion of it.
Pure evil corruption.
...well, I guess if they KNEW those counties were secure - why spend the money at all... seems like people are starting to finally turn against the Democrats!
We are watching the buying of an election on a scale we’ve never seen before.
we have guys that are worth many many many billions and can throw untold hundreds of millions to an election. It’s incredible
Zuckerberg...the mega ego.
Bloomberg $100 million just in Florida, for Biden of course.
I saw this headline and am trying to figure out why this guy... or anyone.. would vote for socialism.
Is he ignorant and not know what socialism is?
No human with an ounce of sense would vote for socialism just because they didn’t like the other person...
No one who was ignorant enough to vote for obama, has enough sense not to vote for socialism..Unless they still do not know who obama is... just plain willfull blindness.
and believing the media....
In those cases... he’s just dumb and how did they get that kind of money with their absent brain.
Donald Dems will turn out to vote, Zuckerberg.
Count on it.
Crony capitalists love socialism. It limits competition.
Anyone who uses Facebook is funding this!
On a conference call, it was stated that Facebook makes 20 bucks per user per month from ads.
Well, I guess Zuckerberg thinks that when the Socialists take over, he will be able to keep his
You are forgetting that one of the major Democrat ‘partners’ in this election is the Chinese Communist Party, with which Zuck’s wife’s family is a strong member. He will emerge under the Harris Administration (with Joe and Jill Biden) even more wealthy and more ‘influential’.
The arrogant always think theyll be spared...
It is not dependent on their millions/billions....
.It is entirely dependent on GOD!!!!!!
Join Franklin Grahams Prayer Walk in DC Sept 26!!!
Trump alluded to this last night at his rally in Henderson NV. Packed to the rafters, there wasnt one MSM including Fox, there to cover it.
Right Side Broadcasting (live on YouTube), pointed out the empty areas that were reserved for media.
Billionaires are not buying socialism. They are buying slavery. They assume that they will be in the Master class of course.
After you have enough money to think of uourself as a little god, the sight of happy free men with little else is disturbing to your world view.
Second, those that are filled with envy and hatred and just want America to get their comeuppance. These people HATE our country, because they believe all the bullshit theyre told about racism and any number of phobias that the democrat party created out of thin air.
2) Envy and hatred
And pulling the strings are democrats who hope to cash in on the looting of America. Nobody ever does well in a left wing government except for the dictators.
The idiots burning down towns are going to be standing in the showers right next to us. Their ignorance is criminal.
Nobody ever does well in a left wing government except for the dictators.
Which is why each successive dictator is then targeted by the wanna-be dictator standing in line.
X1 is nor invulnerable.
The globalist progs crowding at the tip of the pyramid are not invulnerable.
The French Revolution was a cluster and the leaders were also beheaded.
***Billionaires are not buying socialism. They are buying slavery.***
And after President Trump... who will do this to save the country from slavery? I don’t see anyone... but maybe God has one in the wings.. otherwise, this country will turn into one dominated/controlled by the ignorant and self promoting evil socialists/commies.
I have grandsons yet to get to adulthood... and I’m one who cares deeply for the United States of America.. for them and others who care.
