On Wednesday The Berggruen Institute awarded Ruth Bader Ginsburg a $1 Million prize for advancing liberal causes.
The problem is not that anyone is foolish enough to advance liberalism or pay RBG $1 Million for doing so.
The problem is that The Berggruen Institute is strongly connected to China, so much so that it has its own research center at Peking University.
Here’s more from WND:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg scored a $1 million dollar prize thanks to her history of liberal court decisions, though the organization making the payout has a worrying background.
The Berggruen Institute announced Wednesday that its 2019 Berggruen Prize for Philosophy & Culture would go the Ginsburg, essentially because she’s used her position to advance liberal causes.
“Throughout her career, Ginsburg has used the law to advance ethical and philosophical principles of equality and human rights as basic tenets of the USA,” institute founder Nicolas Berggruen said in a news release.
“Her contributions have shaped our way of life and way of thinking and have demonstrated to the world the importance of the rule of law in disabling discrimination.”
Considering the release calls Ginsburg a “trailblazer for human rights and gender equality,” it’s clear that Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch are not likely candidates for next year’s prize.
The prize money will be directed to organizations and charities of Ginsburg’s choice.
