George Soros’ Open Society Foundations is far from the only game in town when it comes to radical leftist astroturfing campaigns. A damning new report has revealed that a wealthy China-based
Marxist and his radical wife have been helping sow discord in the U.S., most recently by filling the coffers of a group staging anti-Israel protests and fomenting pro-Palestinian rage in the United States.
Bari Weiss’ the Free Press recently
zeroed in on how tech entrepreneur Neville Roy Singham — who lived the capitalist dream by selling his software consulting company Thoughtworks in 2017 for $785 million — has been bankrolling a pro-Hamas organization that is scheming to intimidate lawmakers and hold American mobility, critical infrastructure, and trade hostage until Israel is forsaken and the West is saddled with the Palestinian cause.
The extremist outfit seeking the West’s ruination
The organization in question, the People’s Forum,
touts itself as a “movement incubator for working class and marginalized communities to build unity across historic lines of division at home and abroad. We are an accessible educational and culture space that nurtures the next generation of visionaries and organizers who believe that through collective action a new world is possible.”
Ostensibly unwilling to test its ideas at the ballot box, TPF appears keen instead to turn to intimidation and mob actions to get its way, blockading streets and critical infrastructure; swarming political offices and businesses; and turning to other forms of “direct action.” This preference for ochlocratic upheaval is unsurprising given the kinds of leftist movements and mass murderers the group idolizes, including
Soviet dictator Vladimir Lenin.
While antipathetic to the West in general, TPF reserves special hatred for Israel, calling for people to mobilize “from within the heart of empire to demand an immediate ceasefire, an end of all aid to Israel, and a lifting of the siege on Gaza.”
The Manhattan-based revolutionary socialist group has co-organized numerous anti-Israel demonstrations in the wake of the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attacks on Israel, including the celebratory rally in Times Square on Oct. 8.
TPF made clear the timing of this rally was no mistake, claiming in a subsequent
statement that the terrorists who butchered thousands of unarmed Israelis and dozens of Americans were “Palestinian resistance factions” whose attacks constituted “an unprecedented liberation struggle.”
Recipients of Singham’s funds continued, writing, “We stand with the Palestinian people. We defend their fundamental right to resist an illegal occupation, break out of their concentration camp, and defy the cruelty of the sixteen-year Zionist blockade,” likening Hamas to the similarly murderous Viet Cong as though that were a positive.
“We mobilize in the belly of the beast because we understand that we have a unique role to play in combating material support for Zionism, and weakening the handmaiden of U.S. global imperialism,” added the leftist organization.
The Free Press’ Francesca Block indicated that Singham has been the main funder of TPF since 2017. Between 2017 and 2022, Singham and his wife, Jodie Evans, a former Democratic political activist, reportedly funneled $20.4 million to the People’s Forum “through a series of shell organizations and donor advisory groups.”
Singham’s wife reportedly jumped into leftist activism and professionally criticizing America in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks on the homeland. Evans’ go-to causes are climate alarmism, gender, and race hustling. Upon TPF’s inception in 2017, she was made one of the organization’s three board members.
While TPF’s website and tax documents fail to mention Singham, the Free Press traced funds from the radical couple to TPF via a Goldman Sachs-run fund.
Additionally, TPF has admitted to taking Singham’s money,
writing on X, “A few years ago we met Roy Singham, a Marxist comrade who sold his company & donated most of his wealth to non-profits that focus on political education, culture & internationalism.”
“It seems to bother some folk that we receive funding that furthers our anti-imperialist politics. It seems to bother them even more that our funder is also a staunch anti-imperialist whose work goes back to the Black Panthers & the LRBW in Detroit,” continued the admission. “Roy follows in the footsteps of his father Archie, a committed activist for National Liberation.”
Archibald Singham was a Sri Lankan leftist academic and
so-called “anti-imperialist” who worked at Brooklyn College.
Mouthpieces for the Chinese regime
Singham, now based in Shanghai, appears to qualify Western success as imperialism and communist imperialism as success.
The New York Times
reported earlier this year that “hidden amid a tangle of nonprofit groups and shell companies … Mr. Singham works closely with the Chinese government media machine and is financing its propaganda worldwide. From a think tank in Massachusetts to an event space in Manhattan, from a political party in South Africa to news organizations in India and Brazil, The Times tracked hundreds of millions of dollars to groups linked to Mr. Singham that mix progressive advocacy with Chinese government talking points.”
In July, Singham reportedly joined a Communist Party workshop about promoting the genocidal regime internationally.
Evans, the co-founder of Code Pink, is also a hard-core supporter of the Chinese regime, denouncing pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong and Xi Jinping’s Uyghur victims alike.
The Times indicated that none of the nonprofits Singham uses to finance leftist initiatives and propaganda favorable to America’s adversaries have been registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act “as is required of groups that seek to influence public opinion on behalf of foreign powers.”
“I categorically deny and repudiate any suggestion that I am a member of, work for, take orders from, or follow instructions of any political party or government or their representatives,” he reportedly said in an email. “I am solely guided by my beliefs, which are my long-held personal views.”
Citing the Times’ report, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)
wrote to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on Aug. 9 to ensure that the DOJ investigates whether Singham is complying with FARA.
“It appears that organizations tied to Neville Roy Singham, a U.S. citizen, have been receiving direction from the CCP. Mr. Singham is the founder of Thoughtworks, a Chicago-based software consultancy, and for many years, promoted far-left causes. Mr. Singham reportedly created a dark money system that allows him to send funds to a number of far-left organizations,” wrote Rubio.
The Republican senator requested that the DOJ investigate various radical outfits linked to Singham including Code Pink, TPF, No Cold War, and Tricontinental.
The Free Press indicated neither Singham nor Evans replied to requests for comment.
