Anyone who throws stones at billionaire atheist George Soros can expect to be shunned or censored by his protectors in the media. Just ask top Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass or former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
A veteran journalist, Kass blasted Soros for bankrolling the election of soft-on-crime prosecutors. His Tribune colleagues accused him of publishing an “odious anti-Semitic conspiracy theory” and demanded an apology. But Kass refused to grovel, pointing out he was only repeating widely reported facts.
Gingrich charged on Fox that the "number one problem" behind riots and looting in big cities is "George-Soros-elected Left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys." That triggered a Fox host who interjected, "I'm not sure we need to bring George Soros into this."
"Okay, so it's verboten?" asked a surprised Gingrich. Five painful seconds of silence followed.
Despite media censors, the truth is that George Soros is bringing chaos to American cities. He's using his millions to purchase district attorneys who refuse to prosecute low-level crimes and practice revolving-door-justice — releasing offenders back into the community with no-cash bail and lenient sentences.
In 2017, the Hungarian-born hedge-fund mogul spent $1.7 million to elect social justice warrior Larry Krasner as Philadelphia's district attorney. Krasner smiled on election night as supporters chanted, “No good cops in a racist system!” and “f--- the FOP!” (the Fraternal Order of Police).
Crime has since soared in Philadelphia. U.S. District Attorney William McSwain hammered Krasner recently for creating a "culture of lawlessness." McSwain charged that “the staggering homicide and shooting rates in Philadelphia are proof that the district attorney’s radical experiment has failed.”
In Los Angeles, Soros is waging war on law and order by giving $1 million, so far, to make George Gascon LA's next district attorney. As San Francisco DA, Gascon helped make his city a haven for the homeless and increasingly unlivable. He refused to prosecute camping on city sidewalks, public urination, soliciting sex and other crimes.
And in violence-riddled Chicago, Soros has spent $2 million this year to help keep State's Attorney Kim Foxx in office. Under her watch, violent crime in Chicago is way up, with 290 murders and 1,480 shootings in the first seven months of 2020.
But funding progressive prosecutors is just the tip of the Soros iceberg. The 90-year-old radical is spending billions on a laundry list of liberal causes including abortion, LGBT activism, open borders, euthanasia, legalization of prostitution and drugs, judicial "reform," gun control, defunding police, climate alarmism, erosion of U.S. support for Israel, and more.
Soros funnels his largesse through his Open Society Foundations which spends $1 billion annually and is active in 120 nations. Every year, OSF brags, it gives “thousands of grants to groups and individuals who promote our values."
In 2018 alone, Soros poured $708 million into American politics, according to Capital Research Center president Scott Walter. The money, Walter writes, "went into politicized groups like Planned Parenthood, to fight for abortion; the Brennan Center, to tear down voter ID laws; and to all-purpose left-of-center powerhouses like the ACLU and John Podesta’s Center for American Progress."
By comparison, Walter notes, the total combined revenue in 2017 and 2018 of the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee was $502 million.
Soros is also targeting his arch-nemesis, Donald Trump, for defeat in November, spending $52 million through June of this year to elect Joe Biden and other Democrats.
Soros rails at Trump, calling him a "con man," a "would-be dictator," and "the ultimate narcissist." The "fate of the world" Soros insists, hinges on the defeat of Trump, whom Soros likens to brutal North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-Un.
With his vast wealth and destructive agenda, Soros is one of the most dangerously influential people in America today. And that's especially true because of Soros's self-admitted "messianic fantasies."
How's this for a jaw-dropping admission: “It is a sort of a disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything. But I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.”
And that's not a random remark. Say what you will about George Soros, he thinks big. Here's a sampling of his grandiose ambitions:
- "My goal is to be the conscience of the world."
- "Many people have messianic visions. The difference is, I’ve actually lived out my visions.”
- "The arc of history doesn’t follow its own course. It needs to be bent. I am really engaged in trying to bend it in the right direction.”
But former Leftist David Horowitz warns that what Soros really wants is to "make America a one-party state and to silence people like myself.” At present, Soros and his allies have plenty of help from some in the media who censor inquiries into what Soros himself calls his “political philanthropy.”
Yet it's ludicrous to suppress and censor discussion of Soros when he's such a huge player on the American political scene. George Soros and his radical agenda is a story America needs to know. Which is why D. James Kennedy Ministries just aired on nationwide television the new documentary, Billionaire Radical: George Soros and the Scheme to Remake America.
It’s fallen to us, as a Christian media ministry, to do the media’s job for them. To watch, click here.
