It sounds like this is one of those rare cases where both sides are in general agreement that this man is a bad guy. But the democrat party does not admonish, chastise or disown him. Why? What if he were a Republican and was doing the same things but was pushing a radical right wing agenda. Would the media, democrat party and those paying attention be all up in arms?

As importantly, what would the conservatives in this country do? Would we condone this?

Discussion?
While I would like to think differently, I honestly believe a large segment of the republican party would accept his money without question. At their base level, it seems most politicians are cut from the same cloth.

Your point is well taken, regarding money. However, why has the democrat party, the media and the other bell ringing, hand ringing dems not shouted him down? By their silence, it appears they support his moves.

Or do not recognize it for what it is?

The huge amounts of money Soros throw behind the liberal causes buys a lot of looking the other way. All dems except the ultra lefties know what Soros is, but to call him out would be to dry up this horn of plenty and take away the only line of defense for associating with this monster. That defense would be "plausible deniability". If all the truths were to come out, every one who has accepted his money would say, "we didn't know, we thought he wanted to help". Quite convenient.

The man behind the Democratic campaign that gave us President Obama.

- promoting the view that America is institutionally an oppressive nation

- promoting the election of leftist political candidates throughout the United States

- opposing virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by U.S. government, particularly the Patriot Act

- depicting American military actions as unjust, unwarranted, and immoral

- promoting open borders, mass immigration, and a watering down of current immigration laws

- promoting a dramatic expansion of social welfare programs funded by ever-escalating taxes

- promoting social welfare benefits and amnesty for illegal aliens

- defending the civil rights and liberties of suspected anti-American terrorists and their abetters

- financing the recruitment and training of future activist leaders of the political Left

- advocating America's unilateral disarmament and/or a steep reduction in its military spending

- opposing the death penalty in all circumstances

- promoting socialized medicine in the United States

- promoting the tenets of radical environmentalism, whose ultimate goal, as writer Michael Berliner has explained, is "not clean air and clean water, [but] rather ... the demolition of technological/industrial civilization"

- bringing American foreign policy under the control of the United Nations

- promoting racial and ethnic preferences in academia and the business world alike

- promoting taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand

- advocating stricter gun-control measures

- advocating the legalization of marijuana

Does anyone wonder what his motives are? Do you think his motives might be the same as the man who he put into the White House?

- promoting the election of leftist political candidates throughout the United States

So what? You can promote any candidate you want. Welcome to America.


- opposing virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by U.S. government, particularly the Patriot Act

Thats because these national security measures are invasive and allow unprecedented survailance of American citizens. It eliminates due process for suspected threats to national security. This is ok by you? This doesnt ring any bells?

- depicting American military actions as unjust, unwarranted, and immoral

American military actions within the past century have been nothing short of atrocious. We've leveled entire cities around the world and have killed millions of innocent civilians. We drop bombs first then ask questions after the smoke has cleared.

- promoting a dramatic expansion of social welfare programs funded by ever-escalating taxes

Because the poor/working class arent entitled to basic human needs, right?

- defending the civil rights and liberties of suspected anti-American terrorists and their abetters

So in America you're guilty until proven innocent? This isnt Saudi Arabia. These people are human beings and havent been convicted of anything.

- financing the recruitment and training of future activist leaders of the political Left

Again, so what? Would it be acceptable if he financed recruitment of future activist leaders of the politcal right?

- advocating America's unilateral disarmament and/or a steep reduction in its military spending

Military spending makes up most of the deficit. We spend obscene amounts of money to build more weapons of death compared to any other nation on earth. While you argue against social welfare programs, but for military spending you're saying we're better off spending money on death than preservation of life.

- opposing the death penalty in all circumstances

The death penalty is state sanctioned murder any way you look at it. The excecutioner is no better than the condemned man.

- promoting socialized medicine in the United States

The US is the only developed nation (besides Mexico) without universal healthcare. We spend more money per capita than most (if not every) other nations on earth and we still fail to cover every citizen. Do some research on countries with universal health care (like Norway or Japan) and see how they compare to the US. The WHO rates our health care system below Cuba and most of Europe and Asia.

- promoting the tenets of radical environmentalism, whose ultimate goal, as writer Michael Berliner has explained, is "not clean air and clean water, [but] rather ... the demolition of technological/industrial civilization"


Isnt modern technology and industry required for such "radical" environmentalism? The goal is not to demolish civilization, but to make it cleaner AND more efficient.

- advocating the legalization of marijuana

Haha again, SO WHAT? Half of the prison population in jail for drugs are in there for marijuana. Look at how much money we spend to enforce marijuana policy and to keep a bunch of potheads in prison. If it were to be taxed and regulated we could MAKE money (billions) off of marijuana. Anyone who thinks marijuana is more harmful than alcohol has alot to learn.

Does anyone wonder what his motives are?

A better society perhaps? Do you understand the role he played in transitioning Hungary from a communist country into a capitalist one? Or the amounts of money he spends to fight hunger and poverty?

"Jewish Nazi". this is just comical. He was a 13 year old boy handing out deportation letters. I guess he might as well have been pushing his fellow jews into the furnace right? LOL

Is anyone here catholic? Do you realize your pope was a HITLER YOUTH?

You're either an uninformed idiot, or a troll. Either way, stop posting, your three posts are already too many.

Hitler youth membership was required by law for all German boys over the age of 14. Joseph Ratzinger refused to attend meetings and was later a Nazi deserter. Soros has openly admitted to taking personal enjoyment in his role because it made him feel "powerful".

Keep trying to convince us that George Soros = Good, the Pope = Evil and see how that goes for you.

Because he helped hand out deportation letters as a child in order to save his own life? Or because he supports democratic candidates?

His philanthropy around the world doesnt make up for this I assume
