If you want to read a breathtaking exercise in arrogance, hypocrisy and shameless self-glorifying propaganda, read this alarmist screed written by George Soros, who seems to be in a full-on panic because he knows that if he can’t stop President Trump (whom he dubs a “con artist” and “would-be dictator”), his jig is up.
As you would expect from a spectacularly wealthy leftist globalist with access to hordes of speech writers, what he says sounds good upon a passive reading, but any critical assessment that compares Soros’ actual history with his palliative spin reveals the lies.
“I find the current moment in history very painful,” Soros writes. “Open societies are in crisis, and various forms of closed societies – from fascist dictatorships to mafia states – are on the rise. How could this happen? The only explanation I can find is that elected leaders failed to meet voters’ legitimate expectations and aspirations and that this failure led electorates to become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism. Quite simply, many people felt that the elites had stolen their democracy.”
Either Soros is a facile spinner of tales — likely — or he’s truly clueless about how his money is spent — highly unlikely. That disenchantment with democracy and capitalism he bemoans gets a kick into high gear in the U.S., Europe and other places around the world thanks in part to his generous funding of Marxist, anarchist and Progressive groups.
For instance, Soros’ Open Society Institute saw the rioting in 2015 in Baltimore as an opportunity to spread the Soros Doctrine, and wrote a whopping $650,000 check to Black Lives Matter, which used it to fund further racial agitation and, according to an Open Society report, influence the presidential election.
His Soros Fund Management gave more than $10 million to Hillary Clinton‘s election campaign. (I know you’re thinking giving that much money to a candidate must be illegal, and it is, but people like Soros and Clinton “make it legal,” to quote Darth Sidious, through PACs, local committees and countless other workarounds.)
Scrolling through the list of groups to which Soros contributes, consistent themes among the various causes include redistribution of wealth, expansion of government, promotion of abortion, voting rights for felons, spreading communism, gay rights, battling conservatism, criticizing Israel, radical environmentalism, etc., etc. — basically any cause that aims to disrupt, destroy or reshape civilized society is welcome at the Soros trough.
An essential part of the Soros stable is the collection of media outlets, both old and new, he can summon to his cause — groups like Think Progress, Media Matters, Foundation for National Progress (publisher of Mother Jones) and more than 30 major news organizations, from ABC to the New York Times, not to mention the various “fact checkers” so popular today. The connections range from direct contributions to funding of various boards or charities on which journalists serve. It all comes together as a giant net that Soros has thrown around American news coverage. You can probably figure out who in the media is in Soros’ pocket because they’re usually the ones whining about “fake news” since Hillary’s loss.
Soros’ writing includes a thinly veiled threat to oppose Trump and try to block actions needed to repair the damage done to the United States done by eight years of Soros’ puppet, President Obama.
As he writes, “I am confident that democracy will prove resilient in the U.S. Its Constitution and institutions, including the fourth estate, are strong enough to resist the excesses of the executive branch, thus preventing a would-be dictator from becoming an actual one. But the U.S. will be preoccupied with internal struggles in the near future, and targeted minorities will suffer. The U.S. will be unable to protect and promote democracy in the rest of the world.”
And you can count on Soros being behind those internal struggles as he sends hordes of left-wing drones into the streets to riot, during Trump’s inauguration and later.
He also dismissively mentions “color revolutions” that he helped foment against Vladimir Putin, and like the “purple revolution” he is trying to create among Democrats here in the U.S.
Soros laments the terrible state of the world, when he has singlehandedly done more than any individual in modern times to bring the U.S. and Europe to their knees. Soros laments Hitler and communism, and dictatorships in general, when an honest assessment of his activities over the years reveals he has devoted his life to keeping those legacies and systems alive.
George Soros is the source of much of the very evil he claims to oppose. This is a man who will say and do anything at this point to keep the global empire he has been constructing from crumbling, which it began to do with Trump’s election.
