Revisiting the Soros DAs
Not only are they turning cities into crime-ridden hellholes, but they’re turning the country into a banana republic.
With the recent hoopla surrounding the potential indictment of Donald Trump, one of the standout comments came from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. While castigating this threat of arrest of a former president and political rival of the current president, DeSantis also made a very pertinent point:
I do know this: The Manhattan district attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor. And so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors — they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety. He has downgraded over 50% of the felonies to misdemeanors. He says he doesn’t want to even have jail time for the vast, vast majority of crimes. And what we’ve seen in Manhattan is we’ve seen the crime rate go up, and we’ve seen citizens become less safe.
The Washington Post was quick to point out that “Soros-backed,” or in this case “Soros-funded,” could mean many things. “One of the useful characteristics of the term, certainly, is its vagueness,” the Post’s analyst huffed. “That suffix ‘-backed’ can mean all sorts of things. It can mean, for example, that Soros gave money to a group that then backed a candidate who then won — as it does in the case of [Alvin] Bragg.”
This ridiculous attempt to smear conservatives and acquit leftists will not do. Why would George Soros give money to a DA he didn’t think would back his “reform-minded” criminal justice agenda?
Alvin Bragg — the Manhattan DA in question — is, in fact, a perfect archetype of a Soros-backed DA. Soros is one of the billionaire class with socialist leanings. He has used his power, wealth, and influence to put law enforcers in office who are more intent on pursuing political narratives and social agendas than upholding the Rule of Law and meting out justice.
Soros himself has publicly explained his philosophy on criminal justice, which to put succinctly is to focus on reform rather than punishment of the criminal. What does that entail, exactly? Well, in his worldview, institutions are set up to target people of color or of lower income (i.e., critical theory). Putting district attorneys in positions of power can help intervene in this injustice by, for example, eliminating bail, shortening sentences, and in general castigating society for making these criminals criminals.
As this writer has stated before, this perspective is a gross misunderstanding of the human heart and human condition. The Judeo-Christian worldview — that all men have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and that it is by God’s grace that we do any good at all — is the actual truth. This can be seen by the fact that people who are rich and/or in the racial majority are just as likely to break the law and create injustice as those who are poor and/or in the racial minority. There is already a balancing of scales in the injustice department. All humans are able to commit crime.
The true injustice is that those who have committed crimes are not stopped, that victims of their depravity are given no reprieve, and that more victims are created. Under the tender mercies of DA Bragg, New York City has seen a rise in crime. If criminals know they can get away with their acts of injustice, they will continue to do wrong. We have seen this in California under George Gasćon and Chesa Boudin, in Chicago under Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, and in so many other cities around the country.
Alvin Bragg is simply fulfilling the other aspect of this agenda. He is, as DeSantis stated, weaponizing the justice system to mete out a political agenda. This is as banana republic as Russia and Communist China.
A fair system of justice is a cornerstone of what makes America great. If this indictment goes through, that standard goes out the window. Is this really the vision of America that George Soros has in mind? If so, that is all we need to know about him and his supporters.
