For years I have heard that Soros was bad, an activist working in what is seen as “Anti-American” activity. He has turned into for the right what Trump is to the left, a figure that they identify with all that is what they perceive as evil. But is he, what is his history, and what is he doing to draw this type of reaction?
Before I get into this, I need it to be understood, the problem I have with Soros is not that he is of Jewish birth, something I am as well, it is his policies I want to look at. I want this understood; sadly we will see this taken as an anti-Semitic attack, something that was never my intent, instead I did this to look into what this man’s political ideology is doing to this nation.
George Soros was the child of Budapest Jews in the Kingdom of Hungary to a well-to-do non-observant Jewish family, they were very uncomfortable with their heritage, so the fact that they were Jewish really did not mean much to them, this is why after his parents were married they changed their last name from a Jewish Schwartz to Soros.
George Soros was 13 years old when Fascist Germany marched in and occupied Hungry, the first thing they did was expel every Jew from school, it did not matter if you were practicing or not, then the deportations started.
The family had papers drawn up that identified themselves as Christians, Soros himself went on to work with a Tivadar, who was an official in the collaborator Hungarian Government, he with Tivadar aided in cleaning out the property of deported Jews, later claiming that this was the happiest years of his life. In 1945, Soros survived the Siege of Budapest, in which Soviet and German forces fought house-to-house through the city.
In 1947 he immigrated to England and attended the London School of Economics. While a student of the philosopher Karl Popper, giving him his first introduction to the liberal ideology, he later went into speakers square in the college and would challenge others to accept his view of internationalism, or what today is called globalism. He had started his path towards globalism and liberal ideology.
He went on to work in a Merchant Bank, then grew into the investment field ultimately building a net worth over $25 billion.
So what gives him the power he has? To push his vision, Soros set up Open Society Foundations, an organization that was founded to advance his goal of globalization. The sheer scope of funding given shows the range of the power put into this. Soros, at this time was worth over $25 billion, he took $18 billion and seeded the organization with it, giving his foundation more funding then many countries make in their whole GDP in a year. Just the interest of 4% means they have $720 million a year in just interest, and the amount they have is most likely close to double this amount.
The money creates the power. When you have this type of funding it is possible to affect elections, busing in people to intimidate elected officials and voters, like we saw with the protesters who confronted Jeff Flake and others. As it turns out, they were all part of Soros organization. One has to ask, when does activism stop being activism and start to become sedition?
I would say that it is when the will of the people is seen as no longer relevant; instead, the ideology of the actvist is taken as having moral superiority over what the people believe in; this is precisely what we see from Soros and his groups.
So what is held within the confines of his grasp? Many have heard that he was responsible for funding much of the “Women’s March on Washington”, a response from liberals to the election of Trump. Much of the resist Trump movement receives its funding from his organization, and not only in the US, but all over the world. Most of the groups pushing the ideology of globalism and liberal-radical ideology can trace much of their funding to Soros.
Much of the funding of groups that support repealing the tax cuts that Trump has put forward are found to have had ties to Soros, he has funded the GOP “Never Trump” group (a group I have to wonder about their very loyalty to the GOP and what it stands for), as well as groups that have put together an orchestrated effort to stop town hall meetings by conservatives, and attacked people attending Trump rallies.
But it goes much, much deeper then this. Many of the leftist socialist that are rising in ranks in the election two years ago have ties to Soros. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the young, rather ignorant socialist who was elected out of New York who has been thrust in the limelight has ties to Digital Media, as shown in the photo below, all these groups listed are either partially funded or controlled by Soros, you now start to see the depths of his control over politics just here in the US.
We know that many of the groups trying to stop the Kavanaugh nomination have ties to Soros, as do the Senators that are opposing his appointment, the people verbally attacking senators also have Soros ties.
He also has ties to National Public radio having donated $1.8 million to them. In 2004 Soros spent $27 million trying to defeat Bush, and he invested heavily in the New York Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, ABC, NBC. Both ABC’s Christiane Amanpour and former Washington Post editor and now Vice President Len Downie serve on the boards of operations that take Soros cash. This despite the Society of Professional Journalists’ ethical code stating: “avoid all conflicts real or perceived.”
This information is part of an upcoming report by the Media Research Centers Business & Media Institute which has been looking into George Soros and his influence on the media.
The investigative reporting start-up ProPublica is a prime example. ProPublica, which rwon its second Pulitzer Prize, initially was given millions of dollars from the Sandler Foundation to “strengthen the progressive infrastructure” – “progressive” being the code word for very liberal. In 2010, it also received a two-year contribution of $125,000 each year from the Open Society Foundations. In case you wonder where that money comes from, the OSF website is www.soros.org. It is a network of more than 30 international foundations, mostly funded by Soros, who has contributed more than $8 billion to those efforts.
The ProPublica stories are thoroughly researched by top-notch staffers who used to work at some of the most prominent news outlets in the nation. But the topics are almost laughably left-wing. The site’s impressive list of “Our Investigations” includes attacks on oil companies, gas companies, the health care industry, for-profit schools and more. More than 100 stories on the latest lefty cause: opposition to drilling for natural gas by hydraulic fracking, with another 100 on the evils of the foreclosure industry.
While I have no problem with activism, trying to subvert the whole establishment, funding groups that are escalating in their rhetoric and violence, is this what a person or group that has loyalty to the US should do, or is this the actions of someone trying to subvert the will of the people? If that is the case, we do not see pure activism; this is more a wide-spreading and deeply corrupt seditious organization whose goal is not what is best for the US, instead, it is in the interest of destroying this nation as we know it.
In the elections coming this fall we will see Soros hand as well, in a latest op-ed he wrote a scathing letter to the Financial Times in which he argues that both Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg should be removed from their leadership roles at Facebook, because of they are allegedly “engaged in some kind of mutual assistance arrangement with Donald Trump that will help him to get re-elected.”
In his letter to the Financial Times, Soros argues that he actually supports “more government regulation of social media platforms,” and makes the case that “Facebook does not need to wait for government regulations to stop accepting any political advertising in 2020 until after the elections on November 4.”
It turns out that Soros does want regulation, but only if it benefits the leftist agenda.
A lot of evils are thought to have Soros hands behind them according to many, yet not all of these accusations are always accurate. It reminds me of the Devil who gets blamed for a whole lot he has no hand in, but it does not diminish the evil he has done. it is the same with Soros. He gets blamed for much, and his hands are bloodied with much evil, but not all that is liberal, anti-American is done at the hands of Soros, but it is not beyond him to sit back and let these groups work, then add in what is needed to maintain the momentum when they are gone.
I think Soros is evil, and I think he is behind much of what is wrong with this country. Many of these anti-Western, or American groups are either funded or have ties to him. His groups have the money to fund much, money is not an issue, and money has a way of making its possessors think if they have a sizeable monetary backing, then whatever they do must be right, not to mention they can access the best legal minds if they are caught.
So is Soros the Enemy of the People? I don’t know, I would say he is for sure not a friend of the conservatives, not of American exceptionalism, not of American ideology, free trade, sovereignty, or of free thought. He wants a socialist world, one that is controlled by him or people in his circle, like many billionaires, he thinks what he is demanding for the masses does not apply to him. Does that make him an Enemy of the People? That is up to you and this nation to decide, all I know is that I don’t believe he is good for this country and had done far more harm to us and our allies then any enemy has.
