I've always suspect the Left of funding some conservative movements to steer them where they want them to go. And to keep a vocal opposition so as to guard against complacency on their own side. Looks like this may be the case here.
From Diane Kimura:
It is an interesting development and a turn of events.
The Daily Beast posted an article. "Conservative Group Accidentally Reveals Its Secret Donors. Some of Them Are Liberal Orgs"
While I usually don't read The Daily Beast, this article caught my attention. A conservative nonprofit tied to a "White House-in-waiting” for a second Trump presidency has unintentionally revealed its top donors—and two of them are foundations famously associated with liberal causes.
The nonprofit American Compass included the names of five donor organizations on a schedule in its 2022 tax statement, which the org accidentally disclosed.
Two of the five groups stand out for their prominent histories of supporting liberal causes—the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Omidyar Network Foundation. According to the tax statement, the Omidyar Network has contributed $400,000 to American Compass since 2020. In total, Omidyar has donated $500,000, including forthcoming installments.
EBay founder Pierre Omidyar publishes Civil Beat, a liberal Hawaii-based news outlet, and donated over $100,000 against Trump before the 2020 election. He is also a prominent philanthropist who has donated billions of dollars to various causes, especially democracy, human rights, and "social justice."
Omidiyar is also leading a corporate boycott campaign against Twitter owner Elon Musk. Omidyar's ties to the anti-Musk campaign are notable due to the personal history between the two billionaires. Omidyar helped launch Musk by buying PayPal for $1.5 billion in 2002. He is a financial backer of the Intercept and ProPublica (they wrote the hit piece on Clarence Thomas that was filled with omissions and misinformation). He donated $509,500 to Accountable Tech in 2021 and 2022.
