We political junkies on the right have long been aware of George Soros. His persona is similar to that of a James Bond-style villain. (Or perhaps Bond villain personas are similar to his.) After reading over the years about his active roles in world finances and political upheavals, particularly in Western countries, I decided to read a long piece about his life and his stated goals, a piece offered by a friend. He appears to have his unclean fingers in everything.
While we, at present, find ourselves reacting to every incident in the news, it is essential that we pause for a bit, pull back, and look at the “unseen” pulling and puller of strings.
His political activism portfolio is well diversified. Backing organizations dedicated to social agitation and change-for-change’s-sake, Soros has caused tsunamis of upheaval, in the United States and around the world.
A few cases in point: last August, DC Leaks, a group of adroit hackers, got into the Soros files and released them. Perhaps the most notorious of the disclosures concerned Soros’s Open Society Foundations, named in honor of Sir Karl Popper. Underneath its lofty rhetoric, the organization was clearly devoted to the eradication of national sovereignty. A key Open Society paper, hacked in its entirety, described the Syrian refugee crisis as an opportunity to “shape conversations about rethinking migrations governance.” Translation: use agitprop to flood Europe and the U.S. with evacuees (among them some probable terrorists); make the old borders and institutions irrelevant; and, in the process, create a world liberated from the restraints of constitutionalism, American exceptionalism, free-market capitalism, and other obsolete isms.
One of Soros’s long-standing targets is the State of Israel. Providing funding for groups devoted to BDS (boycott, disinvestment, sanctions) against the Jewish State is only part of the equation. According to DC Leaks, Soros gave more than $2 million to Adalah, an “independent human rights organization.” As a matter of policy, Adalah demands that governments sever diplomatic relations with the only democracy in the Middle East.
In the United States, Soros bankrolls a broad range of political and cultural causes. One is to destabilize the Roman Catholic Church in the United States. In 2015, he dedicated $650,000 for the purpose of shaping Pope Francis’s U.S. visit, using left-leaning Catholic groups to promote gay marriage, abortion, and physician-assisted suicide. Leading the effort was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta, a self-professed Catholic. Bill Donohue, outspoken president of the Catholic League, vainly called for Podesta’s dismissal. “He is fomenting revolution in the Catholic Church, creating mutiny and is totally unethical,” Donohue said. “He is the front man for George Soros to create a host of phony anti-Catholic groups. These are not just bad comments, as some have suggested. These words are orchestrated, calculated and designed to create fissures in the Catholic Church.”
Another Soros favorite is Black Lives Matter, the radical protest group dedicated to the proposition that police are inherently racist. Working the streets with incendiary rhetoric, at odds with the truth about black-on-black crime, BLM has helped foster “depolicing,” as Heather Mac Donald describes it, in high-crime urban areas.
[The Open Society Foundation] has donated at least $650,000 to Black Lives Matter and pledged more assistance to antipolice factions across the country. These activities prompted the father of one of the Dallas police officers killed during a Black Lives Matter protest to sue Soros (along with other individuals and groups) for inspiring a “war on police.”
All emphasis mine.
There’s much more at the link, including the more well-known fact that Soros broke the Bank of England.
Ukraine reporting. 2008 mortgage crisis. Backing Democrat campaigns in various American elections—local, state, and federal, including that of Hillary Clinton in 2016.
I have no doubt that Soros has molded, influenced reportage on, and, of course, financed every protest that has occurred since Election Day 2016. It seems fanciful, not to mention conspiratorial, that one man has been able to influence so much in so many places, but Soros is open about his methods of influence and about his goal.
We observers should be ever mindful of this generational endeavor to skew mindsets, to tear down the world as it is and to recreate it the image of Soros’ choosing.
All is not as it appears, and that’s exactly the way he and his allies want it. Sowing chaos reaps order, but not the type of order that a free people desire.
