Most of the $640 million that MacKenzie Scott is giving away is going to nonprofits supporting extreme left-wing objectives, the New York Post reports.

Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, is doling out $122 million for illegal migrants; $117 million for prisoners and ex-cons; $72 million for LGBTQ rights, including transgender athletes; and $18 million for clean energy, an analysis of her foundation Yield Giving shows.

One of the biggest winners is the Florida Immigrant Coalition, which fervently opposes Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ crackdown on illegal immigrants who commit crimes. Another is the Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition, which is fighting Tennessee’s efforts to buckle down on illegal migrants.

“Bezos’ ex-wife is using the profits he made through capitalism to [fund] the rope that will hang capitalism,” says Mike Gonzalez, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation — a reference to Soviet Union revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin, who once said, “The capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.”

Gonzalez continued: “These things that she’s donating money to — whether it’s transgender ideas, helping illegals, prisoner rights, climate change — they’re all trying to transform our system away from capitalism.”

Elon Musk lambasted Scott on a now-deleted X post: “Super rich ex-wives who hate their former spouse should be listed among ‘Reasons that Western Civilization died.’”

After nearly 25 years of marriage, Scott parted ways with Bezos in 2019 with $38.3 billion in Amazon stock.

Though Scott has donated $17 billion in the past five years and has vowed to give away her fortune until “the vault is empty,” Scott is the 40th richest person on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index with a net worth of $38.1 billion.

Gender Justice Executive Director Megan Peterson lauded Scott’s $2 million gift to her organization, saying in a statement that it “could not come at a more crucial time [with] a conservative legal movement threatening our fundamental rights here in Minnesota, North Dakota, and across the United States.

“Building and sustaining a world free of gender barriers requires community organization, education, and changing the ways we talk and think about gender,” continued the leader of Gender Justice, which recently won a lawsuit for the rights of trans youth to play in sports.

A representative for Scott did not return a message from the Post.
