George Soros to Start $1 Billion School to Fight Nationalists, Climate Change
Yahoo Finance ^ | 23 January 2020 | Katherine Burton

Billionaire George Soros said he will commit $1 billion to start a global university to fight authoritarian governments and climate change, calling them twin challenges that threaten the survival of our civilization.

The Open Society University Network will offer an international platform for teaching and research, the 89-year-old said Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The university will be launched through a partnership of the Soros-backed Central European University and Bard College.

“As a long-term strategy our best hope lies in access to quality education, specifically an education that reinforces the autonomy of the individual by cultivating critical thinking and emphasizing academic freedom,” Soros said.

In his speech and a follow-up question and answer session, Soros covered a wide-range of issues, including the “overheated” U.S. economy, the dominance of Facebook Inc. and the autocratic rule of Xi Jinping, Narendra Modi, Jair Bolsonaro and Donald Trump, who he called a “con man and the ultimate narcissist.”

This is one of many reasons our colleges are a cesspool of liberalism.

Wouldn't he be helping students by paying off their student loans that liberals always scream about. Hmmmmm....maybe they don't care about students after all and just their agendas.

Academic Freedom with the open society is an oxymoron. Indoctrination and BS.

So what happened to all the money that Soros has invested in desperate Democrats?

Soros is confirming my suspicion that when you give money to a Democrat it immediately loses its value.

Soros: I want to fly nationalists and narcissists into the sun to fight global warming.

Doctor: Did you take those monkey gland pills I gave you?

Soros: Yes, but there are no trees around to have a climbing contest with Kieth Richards. Pass me a banana.

WTH???? It's authoritarian governments that promote the climate change hoax. So he's fighting two sides of the same coin?

Who is a greater threat to America and a free election?
Russia or the gaggle of Silicon billionaires, Steyer, Bloomberg and Soros?

Soros is 86+ years old. This endowment is his legacy.

Yet Leftist governments are never labeled "authoritarian." All those laws in California, New York, and Virginia are just organized anarchy.

If Soros is so against authoritarian government, why does he support Democrats?

Of course not. I truly believe that the biggest evil in the World today is the media. Everyday that fact gets clearer and clearer to me. They also prove it everyday.

I think Yahoo Finance is branching out into satire.

Their next story will be about Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein starting a girls school to fight exploitation of vulnerable young women.

No, he was so scared of Bush he threw boatloads of money to fight him, too. Trump must have made Soros wet his pants.
