George Soros’s “Victimhood”

Anti-Semitism should always be condemned. But it is somewhat ironic that a man who is Jewish by birth, yet proud for growing up in an “anti-Semitic home,” and for joining a Hungarian Nazi collaborator (a friend of his father), as he identified Jewish property for confiscation, who often demeans Jews and gives millions to anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian and BDS groups, claims to be a victim of anti-Semitism. That man is George Soros.
In the run-up to the midterm election the demonization of President Trump, Republicans and anyone opposing the invasion of undocumented illegal aliens into the U.S., which Soros’s Open Society Foundations has been indirectly supporting, is reaching new heights in the pro-Soros, progressive Left media. Trump’s opposition even claims “Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric may have contributed to an increase in pre-term births among Latina women,” So it is not surprising that Soros’s son alleges “Trump’s anti-Semitic and anti-Democratic Rhetoric Led to Bomb Scare.” And it took no time for the Washington Post and Trump hating Democrat politicians to also blame the President, who supports Israel, and whose daughter is an observant Jewess whose Jewish husband is his trusted adviser, for the tragic anti-Semitic attack that killed 11 American Jews praying at their synagogue in Pittsburgh.
Jewish by birth, Soros has been known to shun his Jewish heritage for decades. However, he has been using the religion he was born into as a flag of convenience, claiming “victimhood” whenever he could exploit it one way or another. And the more he seems to indulge in his alleged victimhood, the more he prompts anti-Semitism.
Last week, when Soros was the first of fourteen recipients- all Democrat celebrities- of package-bombs sent by Cesar Sayoc, his son, Alexander, who is also deputy Chair of his Open Society Foundations, did not miss the opportunity to allege his father was, yet again, a victim of Donald Trump’s anti-Semitic, nationalist-political demonization. This claim was immediately seized on by the anti-Trump media at home and abroad.
However, Soros who has invested untold amounts of money in promoting American Democrat Presidential candidates he hoped would advance his progressive radical neo-Socialist agenda, beginning with Bill Clinton (who implemented some, but not all of the billionaire’s plans) has a long history of demeaning Jews and of giving millions to anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian organizations.
According to Soros both Israel and the United States are “victims turning perpetrators.” Soros, much like the virulent anti-Semitic graphic daily propaganda in the Arab newspapers, is comparing Israel’s self-defense against repeated attempts of annihilation by the Islamist/Arab terrorists to Nazi atrocities. The successful defense against terrorist and invaders, especially preemptive actions by the U.S. and Israel are never appropriate in Soros’ book.
His history of how Israel fought for its independence could have been written by Noam Chomsky, Yasser Arafat or the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
“After the war [World War II], Jews resorted to terrorism against the British in Palestine in order to secure a homeland in Israel,” Soros writes in The Bubble of American Supremacy. “Subsequently, after being attacked by Arab nations, Israel occupied additional territory and expelled many of the inhabitants. Eventually, the Arab victims also turned perpetrators, and Israel started suffering terrorist attacks.” By surviving Arab/Muslim violence all these years, and by defending themselves, the Israeli Jews have brought all these troubles upon themselves.” Israel Jews are getting what they deserve in Soros’ mind.
When the U.S. invaded Iraq in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, President Bush…felt obliged to pay attention to his [Christian Fundamentalist] constituency, [that] Establishing a strong military presence in Iraq would help to transform the political complexion of the entire region. This would reassure Israel and weaken the Palestinian extremists,” he wrote.
According to Robert Slater’s unauthorized biography, which also reports the blue-eyed, blond-haired Soros would “beam“ when other children would tell him, “You don’t look Jewish.”More recently, as the opposition of his well-funded political agenda for a globalist progressive socialist world – especially support of illegal immigration into Europe and the United States – has increased, so did his allegations that his opponents as anti-Semites. He even filed a lawsuit against the Hungarian government over a new law to stop support for illegal immigrants, claiming the law undermines democracy and establishes a “dangerous precedent.” This, after conducting a three-year-long massive political campaign to force his “Open-Society” and open borders views on Hungary. Frustrated by his failed efforts to defeat Hungary’s Fidesz Party, the re-election of its leader and major antagonist Viktor Orban, as Prime Minister, and the new laws to curb Soros’s political influence through his OSF and his Central European University. Soros has conducted a massive propaganda campaign to denounce Orban and his government, complaining they oppose his agenda only because he is Jewish. While anti-Semitism is not new in Hungary or elsewhere, Soros’s allegation and victimhood claims have done a lot to increase and trivialize the problem.
Opposing laws limiting legal and illegal immigration has been a cause Soros began to invest in already in 1996, when he allocated $50 million to establish the Emma Lazarus Fund, The organization was later folded into his Open Society Foundations, which has been funding directly and indirectly many other groups supporting illegal immigration into the U.S. and elsewhere. In 2015, during the Obama administration, his OSF invested “$8 million to support efforts to maximize successful applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA), and millions of dollars more in providing legal support to illegal aliens, on how to circumvent U.S. laws.
Soros and his wide-spread, well-funded network campaigns heavily and vitriolically against U.S. President Donald Trump and his plans to stop illegal immigration. Soros does this because he loathes the 45th president of the U.S., and detests his plans to “make America Great Again.” In January 2017, in Davos, Soros told Svenska Dagbladet, a Swedish daily, “I have described him [Trump] as a joke, a fraudster bondman, and a possible dictator.” he said. “But he’s just a possible dictator,” he added.
Soros’ 1995 book Soros on Soros contains a clue as to his thinking: “I do not accept the rules imposed by others… I recognize that there are regimes that need to be opposed rather than accepted. And in periods of regime change, the normal rules don’t apply.” Clearly, Soros considers himself as someone who is able to determine when the “normal rules” should and shouldn’t apply. Those who oppose him he deems anti-Semitic.
By now it should be evident that Soros is loyal only to himself. His tremendous wealth has allowed him to buy politicians and influence domestic and international politics, which he advances through a myriad of organizations. The religion he was born into, which he disdains, has nothing to do with his political actions.
Soros personifies his agenda and should be held responsible for his efforts to force his globalist, neo-Socialist plan on the U.S., Israel and a host of other countries. Acknowledging his meddling has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. But you could always count on him to claim victimhood, to further trivialize anti-Semitism.
