Aggrieved liberals have demanded a boycott of Ross’s companies as part of an effort to raise the cost, in their view, of enabling “white supremacy.”
Ross, chairman and majority owner of The Related Companies, a real estate development firm, and owner of the Miami Dolphins, has come under intense pressure to cancel a fundraiser planned for Friday at his Sandcastle estate in the Hamptons, New York.
Tickets for the event, which start at $5,600, will go to Trump’s 2020 campaign funds and the Republican National Committee. A private conversation with Trump will cost $250,000.
Only dead brains can explain the overblown “backlash” over a Ross-hosted Trump fundraiser in the Hamptons. Despite over-the-top media coverage, it’s a few noisy guys on a street corner by today’s jungle-law standards.
Ross, who has been friends with Trump for nearly three decades, has personally donated hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions, to politicians over the years. While a majority of these donations have gone to Republicans, the billionaire has also contributed significantly to Democrats, including a number of top party figures, some of which have taken money from Ross in recent years. For example:
- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.)
- $15,700 (most recently in 2015)
- Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.)
- Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.)
- $2,500 (in 2016)
- Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.)
- $2,500 (in 2016)
- Sen. Mark Warner (D., Va.)
- Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.)
- $2,700 (in 2018)
- Rep. Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.), chairman of House Judiciary Committee
- $14,400 (most recently in 2016)
- Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
- Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
- New Jersey Democratic State Committee
- $20,000 (in 2018)
Maybe Ross — a developer with fortunes at stake every time his company lifts a shovel — would rather back a traditional, centrist Democrat who didn’t regard capitalism as a form of original sin. Too bad no such candidate exists in a field of far-left socialists and gaffe-prone bumblers with no chance to win.
Let the haters have their moment. I’ll bet that Equinox survives the purge.
Social media censorship is suppressing the truth about the dangers of globalism and brutal cultures infiltrating the west. Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that Democrats and the mainstream media suppress.
