Kass goes after cancel culture critics in latest column

The latest victim of the leftist cancel culture is the Chicago Tribune's John Kass. He spoke the truth in a column last week about radical billionaire George Soros and his funding of the campaigns of anti-law and order prosecutors such as Democrats Chesa Boudin in San Francisco and Kim Foxx in Chicago.

Not coincidentally, there are so-called "mostly peaceful" riots breaking out in cities run by Democrats all across America.

Thru their union the left-wing mob at the Tribune filed a complaint accusing Kass of anti-semitism. Soros is a non-observant Jew. Kass didn't mention Soros' ethnic and religious background in his column. Kass has been demoted in a sense--his column has been moved from the coveted Page 2 location in the print edition of the Trib to the opinion sections.

A couple of days ago Kass fired back at his critics in a column.
You’d think that before wildly accusing someone of fomenting bigoted conspiracy theories, journalists on the union’s executive board would at least take the time to Google the words “Soros,” “funding” and “local prosecutors.”

As recently as February, the Sun Times pointed out roughly $2 million in Soros money flowing to Foxx in her primary election effort against more law-and-order candidates.

In August 2016, Politico outlined Soros’ money supporting local DA races and included the view from opponents and skeptics that if successful, these candidates would make communities “less safe.”

From the Wall Street Journal in November 2016: “Mr. Soros, a major backer of liberal causes, has contributed at least $3.8 million to political action committees supporting candidates for district attorney in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, Texas and Wisconsin, according to campaign filings.”
The reason the left is attacking Kass is not that he's wrong about Soros and these prosecutors. It's because he's correct.
