140,000 Americans sign petition against George Soros
The man behind the Obama/Clinton regime and the Democratic Party, George Soros is coming under pressure.
Soros, famed for his liberal politics, has no qualms using his $25 billion fortune to fund fake-conservatives either. Take, for example, the $100,000 he donated to top Senate embarrassment John McCain’s “legacy” foundation, which also accepted $1 million from Saudi Arabia. A credible collection of democracy-loving philanthropists, indeed.
A skeptic might cynically surmise that Soros is not really a bleeding heart liberal and altruist after all, but a billionaire willing to throw money at whoever he believes will preserve the system that made him rich.
The petition, which also calls on the government to seize all of Soros’ assets, argues the billionaire “has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition” against the United States. Also that he “has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government.”
Whatever about the “terrorist” part, it is at least true that Soros maintains an unhealthy influence over the Democratic Party, as well as political systems around the world besides the United States.
Soros was Hillary Clinton’s top donor in the 2016 election and has for decades used his vast wealth to influence politics, stir discontent and profit off chaos in countries under the guise of philanthropy and humanitarianism. But Soros (and many of his beneficiaries) represent a disturbing hypocrisy. Claiming to support and promote democracy the world over, Soros’ actions consistently undermine it. Or, as one writer for The Observer put it: “…there is nothing philanthropic about drowning a democracy in money.”
Drowning a democracy in money is exactly what Soros does — and it has very little to do with philanthropy, fairness or social conscience. Soros-funded Democrats routinely attack anyone who truly dares to challenge the system that allows a few billionaires to maintain far more control over “democracies” than the regular people who live and vote in them. Look no further than the vicious attacks on Bernie Sanders — a candidate who at least had the integrity to shun the Super PACS he believes are infecting American democracy.
Even after her loss to Donald Trump, Clinton is still taking aim at Sanders — a man who endorsed her despite revelations that she and a supposedly neutral Democratic National Committee secretly worked in cahoots to scuttle his massively popular campaign.
Soros has been eulogized by the left and reviled by the right. As such, much of the criticism of him is found on right-leaning websites and blogs, while the liberal mainstream steers clear — a distinct contrast with how they treat billionaires like the Koch brothers who funnel billions into the pockets of Republicans.
