Soros: The Great Divider

A look at how the leftist billionaire funds all manner of leftist upheaval.

Arnold Ahlert · Jan. 26, 2017

America is a divided nation. No one exacerbates that division more than far-left “philanthropist” George Soros.

Reporter Asra Q. Nomani has exposed the progressive billionaire’s latest machinations, revealing the “spontaneous” Women’s March on Washington was anything but. Research she made available for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs show Soros has either funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s so-called partners — partners that comprise a Who’s Who list of organizations dedicated to radical leftist causes. Two major Soros philanthropies, the Open Society Institute and the Foundation to Promote Open Society, keep the money flowing to many of these groups.

“Much like post-election protests, which included a sign, ‘Kill Trump,’ were not ‘spontaneous,’ as reported by some media outlets, the ‘Women’s March’ is an extension of strategic identity politics that has so fractured America today, from campuses to communities,” Nomani asserts. “On the left or the right, it’s wrong. But, with the inauguration, we know the politics. With the march, ‘women’ have been appropriated for a clearly anti-Trump day.”

Appropriation is far too kind. Used for the purposes of turning Americans against each other is far more accurate. And sadly, many women were willing to oblige the rank hypocrisy that attends marching for “dignity” while carrying signs with the words, “Pussy trumps tyranny,” and “Keep your politics off my pussy,” and wearing “Pussyhats” or vagina costumes. Add the outbursts of vulgarity, courtesy of celebrity has-beens like Madonna and Ashley Judd, along with a speech by former Black Panther Angela Davis offering praise for cop-killers Leonard Peltier, Mumia Abu-Jamal and Assata Shakur, traitor Bradley Manning and unrepentant terrorist Oscar López Rivera, and it becomes clear the so-called Women’s March was nothing more than a springboard for a progressive hate-fest.

A hate-fest Soros will underwrite at every turn.

Soros was born in Hungary in 1930 to non-practicing Jewish parents Tividar and Erzebat Schwartz. When the Nazis invaded Hungary, George’s father procured fake papers identifying him as a Christian, and sent him to live with a Hungarian official tasked with delivering deportation notices to Hungary’s Jews, and confiscating their property for the Germans. George would sometimes accompany the official on his rounds. When asked in a 1998 “60 Minutes” interview with Steve Kroft if he felt guilty about the experience, Soros replied, “No,” and likened it to “markets,” further explaining that if he weren’t there doing it, “somebody else would be taking it away anyhow.”

Some call that collaboration with the Nazis. That’s a dubious assertion given Soros' age (14) at the time. But there is no mistaking the arrogance of Soros' attempt to reduce his association with one of history’s greatest evils as something akin to “market forces.” It is precisely that arrogance that drives his dedication to globalism, a movement with contempt for national sovereignty and democracy, and one that Trump stands squarely against. Thus Soros views Trump as “a con artist and would-be dictator” with a cabinet comprised of “incompetent extremists and retired generals.”

Thus it should surprise no one that Soros is tied to groups attempting to get Trump impeached. On Monday, the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in in Washington (CREW) filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutional nature of Trump’s presidency. The Soros-backed group claims the president is in violation of the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause because he has dealings with foreign countries who rent space in his buildings, or lend money to his real estate ventures.

Two other groups, Free Speech for People and RootsAction, have already created an Impeach Donald Trump Now website, and are also initiating impeachment efforts based on Trump maintaining his ownership of his luxury hotel and golf course businesses while he remains in office.

Breitbart News makes the connections between Soros and the major players involved, revealing Free Speech for People (FSP) co-founder John Bonifaz also founded the National Voting Rights Institute (NVRI), a group whose funders include Soros' Open Society Institute. NRVI also receives funding from the Soros-funded Tides Foundation. FSP director Lance Lindblom was the former Executive Vice President at the Soros Foundation’s Open Society Institute/Open Society Fund. RootsAction co-founder Norman Solomon also founded the Institute for Public Accuracy, a group funded by Open Society Foundations.

Prior to the election, Soros bankrolled efforts to undermine the integrity of the voting process in Wisconsin, North Carolina and Ohio. And the Open Society Institute funded Washington CAN! — a group that ran a Craig’s List ad offering $15 an hour to those willing to participate in pre-election anti-Trump protests.

Soros' determination to undermine America goes far beyond his efforts to delegitimize Trump. A document hijacked by DCLeaks revealed Soros' Open Society Foundations gave $650,000 to the #BlackLivesMatter movement when they saw a “unique opportunity to accelerate the dismantling of structural inequality generated and maintained by local law enforcement” in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray. The document also referred to the riots that besieged the city as peaceful protests “temporarily” disrupted by “a period of unrest that lasted less than 48 hours” that “catalyzed a paradigm shift in Baltimore that offers opportunities for major justice reforms.”

That 2016 was the deadliest year in Baltimore’s history — due in large part to police reticence engendered by pandering, progressive politicians — says otherwise.

Soros also targets Israel: another DCLeaks hack revealed he is behind a number of anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist causes.

How does Soros remain largely under the radar? A 2011 Media Research Center report revealed that since 2003, Soros “has spent more than $52 million funding media properties, including the infrastructure of news — journalism schools, investigative journalism and even industry organizations.”

The most troubling aspect of the report? “It turns out that Soros' influence doesn’t just include connections to top mainstream news organizations such as NBC, ABC, The New York Times and Washington Post. It’s bought him connections to the underpinnings of the news business,” MRC states. MRC further explains that because Soros funds organizations that fund other organizations, a complete accounting of his media influence is “almost impossible” to ascertain.

Columnist Dennis Prager asserts America is in the midst of a Second Civil War, pitting traditional liberals, conservatives and the Right — all of whom share a belief in American exceptionalism — against a Left that views America as “a racist, xenophobic, colonialist, imperialist, war-mongering, money-worshipping, moronically religious nation.”

The most significant factor in that war? As Prager astutely notes, only the Left is actively fighting it.

The critical dynamic going forward? Americans must understand that George Soros is one of the Left’s primary instigators — and that Trump is the foremost threat to his despicably divisive agenda.

Thus, those expecting leftist hysteria to abate once the initial shock of the election results wears off are being utterly naïve. They are equally naïve if they believe compromise is possible with people the late Andrew Breitbart described as Marxists more than willing to mount a “sustained attack on every institution of Western culture.”

Soros is the tip of the spear — which is why he and his ideas must be decisively defeated in the court of public opinion and at the ballot box.
