Why does the right hate Soros? ( barfer )
politico...Tides Foundation ^ | 10/29/10 | DRUMMOND PIKE

Posted on 10/29/2010 10:45:43 AM PDT by george76

the bizarre idea that George Soros “owns” the Tides organizations — through which he is allegedly pursuing a nefarious agenda to destroy America.

As a public charity, Tides is not owned by Soros, nor was it started by him. Soros is the founder and chairman of the Open Society Institute. It is just one of hundreds of funders that partner with Tides in programs to promote economic justice, democratic processes and human rights.

The Open Society funds are only a small percentage of Tides’ total contributions — far less than 5 percent of our $112 million total in 2009.

Amid the cacophony of screed, I didn’t focus on these lies about Soros. It has been bad enough to try to wrap my mind around how Beck and others were repeatedly labeling us “communists” and “socialists” and “anti-American” — on a channel that describes itself as “fair.”

Tides may be progressive, but ...

Drummond Pike is the founder and chief executive officer of Tides Foundation.

What the hell does Soros know about ‘economic justice’?

I’m not sure that’s accurate. I’m told McCain is a fine Republican Senator and he does business with Soros.

I had always thought we were enemies with Soros, but McCain and his fellow travelers don’t seem to mind him at all.

In fact there’s a lot of support here for people who run in those circles.

I sure don’t.

A hit dog howls. Every member of the Open Society Institute and Tides Foundation ought to be outed. BO is so insistent upon openness in the funding of the US Chamber of Commerce, so we certainly need to know who the bankers to the Left are as well.

I'd like to see some economic justice administered to George Soros from this public platform:

Nice choice of words to hide what is basically a Bolshevik agenda.

It’s not just “the right”. It’s France, England, Russia,...the list goes on and on. Soros is a greedy, creepy, wicked and bitter little old man. He hates EVERYBODY! His only loves are money, recreational drugs and communists.

” hundreds of funders that partner with Tides in programs to promote economic justice, democratic processes and human rights” aka marxism, which is what these words mean when used by the left. Gee, why don’t we like that? /spit

“Why does the right hate Soros?”

because he manipulates currencies and tanks markets to line his own pockets?

Soros is an admitted and unappologetic Nazi sympathizer.
His lust for power for powers sake is a trait well loved by the ‘progressives’. The ‘Progressives’ are cheap whores who feed at Soros’ trough. They wouldn’t be able to distinguish themselves from the Nazis in 1933.
Do you know any Nazis? Well, my 89 y.o. aunt is one and let me tell you, she speaks just like someone from the Tides Foundation.

Why does the right hate Soros?

I, personally, currently have only two reasons:

1. - He is a despicable filthy rich commie liberal trying to screw our country, capitalism and our way of life (not unlike the rest of the moronic un-American left).

2. - He keeps turning me down on that 'duck hunting' invitation with myself and Dick Chaney.

That it (”economic justice”) can be used to destroy entire nations?

I guess he was pursuing economic justice when he helped the Nazis destroy his own people.

Why?

I don’t know — perhaps because he’s Satan’s spawn?

You are what you are, how could it be more fair?

Your descrption carries on from the time as a teenager in Hungary his Jewish lawyer father found a refuge for George from the Nazis in a public official’s home. George went on to be a gouhl robbing the possesions of jews slated for the gas chambers. This is covered somewhat by a December 20, 1998 interview with Soros by Steve Kroft CBS. At this time 40 some years afterwards Soros showed no remorse for his nefarious gains. It is amazing that this guy was granted US citizenship and further that he has not been kicked out of the US. I suspect there are some behind the international movers, perhaps other Jews, who keep the skids greased for this guy.

The real mystery is why does the envious left love a greedy rich man? He plays them for the fools they are.

admitted and unapologetic Nazi sympathizer.

Old Joe Kennedy was a Nazi sympathizer. Soros was a Nazi operative.

Omitting this from the biography tells you all you need to know about Drummond Pike.

You are correct.
‘operative’ or collaborator whichever.
This really gets to me personally because my mother refused to join the party and the life she lived during that time because of that decision. No party affiliation, no job, always on the run, escaping from the work farms twice!

My concerns are shallow indeed compared to that. So why does Weisenthal Center and all allow him to posture as a humanitarian?

Everyone has a price. If anything Soros is a good study on human nature. I think he probably holds those he has been able to buy off in contempt.
He says he did what he had to do and if he didn’t do it someone else would. It was war. But you can still buy your way out.

Steve Croft’s initial reaction in the 60 minutes interview has to be normative, paraphrased from memory, “anybody would be on the psychiatrist’s couch after...” To which Alfred E. Soros replies, “what, me worry?” Defining deviancy downward for sure. But these are the people that take Michael Moore and Bill Maher seriously.
