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.
