Branding someone the most "anything" is a risky endeavor; superlatives will always be suspect. But I cannot find words strong enough to condemn George Soros.
If you haven't heard of him, you're not alone. Outside of politics wonks and special-interest-group gravy-train riders, he is not well known.
But he should be.
There is no doubt in my mind that George Soros is the most dangerous man in America. Pick most any attack upon our culture you please -- that on Christianity, the push to legalize recreational drugs, the drive to grant amnesty to invaders, the trampling of our constitution, the metastasizing of the nanny state, and many others -- and Soros' fingerprints are all over them. He funds leftist causes to the tune of 400 million dollars a year. This article partially exposes the machinations of this creature, and here is an excerpt:
Didn't the mainstream media report that 2006's vast immigration rallies across the country began as a spontaneous uprising of 2 million angry Mexican-flag waving illegal immigrants demanding U.S. citizenship in Los Angeles, egged on only by a local Spanish-language radio announcer?
Turns out that wasn't what happened, either. Soros' OSI had money-muscle there, too, through its $17 million Justice Fund. The fund lists 19 projects in 2006. One was vaguely described involvement in the immigration rallies. Another project funded illegal immigrant activist groups for subsequent court cases.
Soros is the invisible hand behind much of the manipulation of our culture. He reminds me of the evil emperor in Star Wars; his minions are all about bedeviling us, but you don't see him much. He stays behind the scenes, scheming, calculating, making his deals with the Devil and pulling strings. He is the miasma beneath the demon wings of the foot soldiers who do his bidding, the dirtiest of dirty work.
What is truly disgusting about this man is that he tirelessly tries to destroy the very civilization that gave him the opportunity to make billions. Of course, he has made his money through noble pursuits such as breaking currencies, so I'm sure he sold his soul long ago.
Even more shameful, though, is the media's abdication of its responsibility. The author of the piece I cite bemoans the lack of transparency with respect to Soros' schemes, but the media can render something transparent as easily as invisible. Barack Obama is a "rising political star" because the media decided that he fit their favored profile; Michael Savage is ignored perhaps because they know that the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. If the media did its job and spotlighted Soros to a degree commensurate with his endeavors, they would be transparent. Then, the American people could make their decisions with open eyes.
Don't misunderstand me, I don't say that the media have to score Soros as I do. However, movers and shakers should be scrutinized based on how much they move and shake, not based on which way they move and who they shake. The truth is that the media is one of the greatest enemies our country could have.
So the cancer metastasizes, steadily, inexorably, perhaps irrevocably, as we die a death by a thousand cuts.
