J.D. Vance on Ford Foundation: "We Are Actively Subsidizing The People Who Are Destroying This Country"

|

J.D. Vance, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate from Ohio, appeared on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' on Wednesday and reacted to fracas at the "Multicultural Center" at the Arizona State University. Two students with "Police Lives Matter" stickers triggered the ire of a female student of color, a Ford Foundation fellow, that admonished them for being there.

Carlson said that this student is just one of many that are scholars of Ford Foundation, a non-partisan with tax-exempt status.

"Through its program of fellowships, the Ford Foundation seeks to increase the diversity of the nation’s college and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and increase the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students," reads the description for the fellowship program.


"AOC talks about taxing the wealthy, but the Harvard University endowment pays zero tax," Vance said. "The Ford Foundation that funds those radicals pays zero tax. They are not actually going to tax their wealthy friends who are funding radical left-wing ideology."

"This ideology is going to destroy our country," he said. "It gets special tax privileges from the American taxpayer to do that."

"We are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars in ill-gotten accumulated wealth," Vance said on FOX News. "It serves as a tax haven for left-wing billionaires and what do they do with this? They fund critical race theory, they fund ridiculous racism, they fund teaching 6-year-olds that they should, you know, cast off their gender. We are actively subsidizing the people who are destroying this country, and they call it a charity."

VANCE: The basic way this works is that the Ford Foundation, the Gates Foundation, the Harvard University endowment, these are fundamentally cancers on American society, but they pretend to be charities, so they benefit from preferential tax treatment.

So AOC talks about taxing the wealthy, but the Harvard University endowment pays zero tax. The Ford Foundation that funds those radicals pays zero tax. They are not actually going to tax their wealthy friends who are funding radical left-wing ideology. What they're going to do is tax normal Americans and protect their friends, protect their special privileges so they have the resources to continue to fund what is ultimately the destruction of our country. This ideology is going to destroy our country. It gets special tax privileges from the American taxpayer to do that.

Of course the left-wing radicals are not going to talk about it because they care more about identity politics than lifting up the American worker. And these foundations are the ultimate institutions of identity politics. When you think about it, this is crazy, Tucker.

We are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars in ill-gotten accumulated wealth. It serves as a tax haven for left-wing billionaires and what do they do with this? They fund critical race theory, they fund ridiculous racism, they fund teaching 6-year-olds that they should, you know, cast off their gender. We are actively subsidizing the people who are destroying this country, and they call it a charity. It's just ridiculous.
