That'll hire a lot of crisis actors, even at full union rates.

Soros is swimming in defunded police money and will soon turn us all into gay midget wrestlers working for his own entertainment.  I heard that on Facebook, so it must be true.

Is this coming out of the burn-down-the-suburbs money? Because that doesn't seem fair.

Soros is a bogeyman because Republicans need to create liberal monsters to hate on.

Democrats don't have to do that since Republicans supply the monsters for free.

Any rich Jew would have been fine.  The point is antisemitism, the figure head is irrelevant.

I've been donating to Democratic candidates in Alabama and in other states. Mostly for US Senate seats and for Biden, obviously, as well as Democratic PACs and organizations.

It's a gamble that I am throwing my money away against Republican contributions, etc. But, I contribute what I'm willing to lose.

The ANTIFA rioters and crisis actors he funds will appreciate getting their raises.

I hope he didn't divert any funding from chemtrails and gay frog research for this.

Who could have guessed being persecuted by the Nazis could make you sensitive to racial equality and hated by conservatives.

I won't be convinced until I see a video of a bald guy with mirrored sunglasses explain it while driving his truck.

George Soros is living proof that all billionaires are not created equal, or treated equally.  You can just be Jewish and philanthropic and that's enough to make you Satan to a conservative diehard.

All of us, though? I guess that's okay, as long as the outfits -- while small and cheap to assemble -- still retain their pizzaz.

So he DOES have the money to pay me for all my anti Trump comments?  Wtf, George. You said you didn't have it on you.

yeah, his quest to make sure his family members don't get hauled off to camps again is exactly the problem  right wingers have had with Soros since he became politically active.

Soros went the extra mile and frustrated Putin's efforts to take back the westward side of all the SSRs when the Union broke up, especially Ukraine.  He also broke the Bank of England, which put him in the brilliant hedge fund manager hall of fame.   There are some jealous managers, with egos like Bannon or Mercer.

So there's lots of money backing his demonization, especially since he didn't go over to the dark side, where all the other fund managers live in order to create chaos in the markets and then innocently profit.

It helps that he's a Holocaust survivor. So he's one of thems that's got away.

Soros impresses me.

He's able to hire thousands and thousands of paid protestors and crisis actors, and there are never any leaks or exposés that survive to get into major media. I mean, I don't know if he just runs that tight a ship or has access to enough Illuminati resources that he's able to disappear rats and moles and bribe journalists to keep quiet, but either way his core team seems really loyal and hyper-competent.

Contrast it to the Trump administration, where he can't even have a single "perfect call" with a foreign head of state in which he asks for an investigation into his rival's son without people who work for him running away to tattle almost immediately.

I'm just saying, George Soros seems way better at keeping secrets than the US government.

TLDR? The Neo Nazi wanna be dictator who runs Hungary hates him for fostering a free news media in his native country as well as funding what was its largest university.  So Orban and his Patron Putin have used both countries intwl services to start a smear campaign against Soros that wittingly or Un- the US right wing has echoed and amplified

Meh.  Soros and his forced abortions for everyone is out of fashion these days.  The true subversives with style are all over with Gates and his 5G microchip tracking virus hoax.

I thought it was because he pissed off Rupert Murdoch decades ago over some petty shiat and they've been squabbling ever since.

This tweet thread is an absolutely fascinating/tragic look at the brainworms caused by this particular strain of being online.

Please remember how Mr. Soros made his big money: He would bet on a country's economy crashing, and then set about helping that collapse happen.

Profit.

This is just more of the same.

You just described the CIA. I don't see how a private citizen can do that.

I wonder if since he's got a simple name like Soros it makes it easier to demonize him.  Like if his name was Buczkowski, Hickenbottom or Stepanchikov would be such a lightning rod for the right?

I see you've noticed the Pocket Ninja in front and got inspired.

Oh, give me a break - an investment, either for against F/X - is completely legal and capitalist.

He doesn't orchestrate it anymore than a hot player at a table in Vegas attracts other players. I don't see you taking on The Oracle of Omaha for moving markets by making investments.

You don't like (((him))). Admit it.

He's hated because he's Jewish, and he got rich in part by breaking the Bank of England, making a lot of public-school boys (mane of them already genteel anti-Semites) look very silly in the process.

The secret to Soros' wealth is no secret at all. He looks at the fundamentals. He guessed, correctly, that the BOE's policy was incompatible with maintaining the pound's more-or-less fixed exchange rate with the German mark at the time, and bet against the pound. (And, unlike most of the toffs, he earned every penny in his pocket.)

If I were a bigger believer in Great Man theories of history, I would ask if Soros had not helped sow the seeds of Brexit (without realizing it at the time, of course) by ensuring that the BOE would never again pursue a fixed-exchange-rate policy. (The BOE adopted an inflation target shortly after Black Wednesday.) Ensuring that the UK could continue to borrow its own currency made Brexit easier to pull off without destroying the British banking sector, if one absolutely had to do it.

But anybody could have made the same bet, including the toffs who never forgave the Jew Schwartz for showing up John Bull. Possibly they were envious at the time.
