Pure Scum on an international scale. Dangerous man behind much of the social violence and mayhem we have seen in recent years.

When you don't have facts, you make things up. I had never heard of Soros until he became a boogeyman for the far right. From business insider, hardly a lefty site:

Quote:
The day after Donald Trump became president of the United States, thousands of people in pink hats marched the streets. They were protesting Trump's stance on women's rights, among other issues.

But some looked at the sea of pink and saw something else: the invisible hand of a man they believe is not just funding liberal protest movements but controlling the world's wealth and pushing a global order.

It's not true, but the man these conspiracy theorists target is George Soros, the prominent billionaire hedge fund manager.

The 86-year-old has become a Rorschach test. To the left, he's a rich guy openly supporting causes many liberals believe in. But to some on the far right, he's more sinister and nefarious, despite a lack of evidence. For two decades, some have seen Soros as a kind of puppet master secretly controlling the global economy and politics.

At times Soros has wielded great power. In the early 1990s, he bet against the British pound, which broke England's monetary system overnight and earned him more than a billion dollars. Later in the decade, he took similar steps during Asian Financial Crisis. Many saw it as capitalizing off of catastrophes and the Malaysian prime minister even accused Soros of purposefully bringing down the value of his country's currency by more than 15%.

From there, he's become a singular target of unfounded right-wing conspiracy theories, in part because he has so few peers on the left.

“What makes the Soros thing interesting is that most of the conspiracy theories about rich people tend to be made by people on the left about people on the right," said Joe Uscinski, a political-science professor at the University of Miami.

Political involvement
Soros, who is worth $25 billion, has been at the center of conspiracy theories since he first rose to the top echelons of hedge fund managers in the 1990s. But he really attracted attention in 2004, when he gave money to groups that sought to block President George W. Bush's reelection bid. His entry into politics, coupled with Soros' choice to repeatedly speak out against the Iraq War, set off a long-lasting string of conspiracy theories alleging that Soros tried to influence politics with nefarious intent.

“George Soros first found himself in the crosshairs of the conservative propaganda machine when he publicly expressed opposition to the march to war in Iraq,” said Michael Vachon, a spokesman for Soros Fund Management. Since then, Soros has continued to donate large sums of money to organizations that support democratic reform in the US and throughout the world. Some saw that as a sign of scheming secretive plots.

Right-leaning sites like Breitbart and The Washington Times have often claimed that Soros paid protesters at the Women's March and the March for Science. In reality, Soros has been giving money to progressive groups since long before the Trump’s election. In 2017, some of them decided to participate in protests.

Theories can be far-fetched, like accusations that Soros is in cahoots with the world's elite to bring down the global currency. Then there are simpler accusations that are rooted in truth: that Soros uses his power and money to influence politics. His open support for migrants and refugees and criminal-justice reform is well known.

Still, people such as Daniel Greenfield believe Soros goes further. Greenfield is a regular writer for far-right outlets. He believes Soros is trying to take over the world to make it more liberal.

"Government should be decided by the people rather than by powerful interests who subvert democracy," Greenfield told Business Insider. He wrote an article saying that Soros "destroyed the Democratic party."

"I don't like his governments and their agendas," Greenfield said.

Matty’s discovered the issues associated with hedge funds and betting against. Tell me, is there any politician you support that will alleviate those abuses? Trump? Prmised—but made it safer. Antone in the Republican party? No. So it only matters if Soros did it. You sick hypocrite.

actually you are far more a Nazi than he ever was falsely claimed to be.

You do know why he changed his name during the Nazi occupation,

you do realize he is Jewish and saw the likes of your type first hand...

wow all we can find is three dem billionaires... and one Bloomberg is not a dem.

Koch brothers, richard mellon scaife, trump claims to be a 10 billionaire, but we know he is a liar. A billionaire does not start fake universities. The trust fund clubs... walmart kids, hunts, coors, mercers, amway, richard mellon scaife, and about 100 other major right wing political right wing and ultra right wing donors. not even including the corporations. and we have 2 liberals that the right claim are influencing... but the 100 right wing well they do not count for the right wing white victimization.
