George Soros gives $100M to Human Rights Watch
Yahoo Finance ^ | Nov. 8, 2010 | AP staff News

Posted on 11/08/2010 2:28:31 PM PST by Stayfree

The financier and major donor to liberal causes said Tuesday that it's become a disadvantage for the group to be primarily funded by Americans because the U.S. has lost the "moral high ground" when it comes to fighting abuses.

So that HRW can worry about the people Soros pauperized with currency manipulation to the tune of billions.

What a guy!

Must be nice to be able to throw $100 million to your favorite activist group.

Too bad Soros is a one-world, big-government, totalitarian statist, because that’s what he’s funding.

I hope he has kids and they’re all free-thinking conservatives.

It’s a front to funnel campign money to Democrats. Here’s my question: why isn’t there a cabal of Conservative Financeers to thwart him? Seems that he’s the ONLY one sitting at the United States Political System Poker Table

Soros became a US citizen the same year Barry was born. What bad year for America.

He’s still wanated in Russia for crashing the Rouble. They raided his Moscow offices in November 2005 and arrested everyone there.

Too bad he was here in the States at the time. We don’t have an extradition treaty with the Russian Federation.

Soros masterminded the devaluation of the Rouble from $0.16 in 1998, to $.03 in 2001.

He made billions on the back of the struggling Russian economy and nearly destroyed any chance of post-Soviet recovery.

Now that our economy has been sufficiently weakened, count on this corrupt slug to do the same to the dollar.

Count on it.

Well, there are the Koch brothers who back AFP and other conservative causes and are demonized by the left as a result; but the big money contributors do seem to come primarily from the left.

“Is Human Rights Watch’s Marc Garlasco A Nazi-Obsessed Collector?
Well, yes. But if you’re going to hire pro-Palestinian activists to run your Middle East division, why not throw in an avid collector of Nazi memorabilia (he even wrote a book, see below) to be your military investigator for good measure?

Snark aside, I understand there are people who collect Nazi memorabilia for innocuous reasons, and in Garalasco’s case, his grandfather served seven years in the Nazi military.”http://volokh.com/posts/1252419984.shtml

Human Rights Watch was also the issuer of reports used during Soros backed so called Velvet Revolutions.

Soros is a National Security risk. When is he going to be dealt with? Why does he control the democratic party and the White House? Why do we let him control our currency? Is every word he utters monitored by our NSA, FBI and CIA? Military intelligence?

Hmmm sounds suspiciously like what is now happening with our currency. As someone so concerned about human rights, he couldn't possibly be a major player in the current currency wars

Soros is also wanted by the Chinese government for currency manipulation and an attempt to crash the Yuan....

However, if Russia and China really wanted Soros badly, they would have gotten him by now. This tells me one thing... Soros is now doing the bidding of Russia and China, either by threat or because the Russians were planning to crash their currency all along so they could “peg” it to something, the same way the Chinese did (and Soros was involved in Yuan devaluation too).

From a teenage Nazi that said he had no regrets for being a vulture of the homes of Jews sent to death camps and who actually said it was the best time of his life.

What I’d like to know if their possessions gave him his first fortune.

That explains him in one sentence. His way of dealing with his own guilt is by accusing others.

So, if he did all that, why didn’t the Rusians “off” him? He’s done a lot more damage than some reporter, and reporters get offed all the time in Russia.

Agree 100%! At the minimum if breathing sorass should not be inhaling American air.

Hoping the new Conservative Pols will initiate some serious investigation of this idiot. I then predict his next escape move will be to China.

Soros wasn't the son of a Nazi, he was born Jewish, his father hooked him up with a Christian realtor-type, who worked with the Nazis to confiscate property owned by Hungarian Jews. The best year of his life, according to Soros.

So, Soros and his minions, who a few years ago claimed ownership of the Democrat Party is a Nazi collaborator, an actual, real life collaborator, not a name, leads the Democrat Party. If he'd been a Republican, he'd never get anywhere near the levers of power. Why the GOP doesn't do more to enlighten voters of who's behind the Democrat Party is just more evidence that the GOP is the Stupid Party.

“I honestly don’ know why this man is still breathing.”

From recent pictures, he looks like a tortured soul who knows what is in store for him.

I think his failing health will send him to judgment soon enough.

Soros should be deported. He’s basically no different from the Nazi camp guards that we deport when discovered. The camp guards were tools of Hitler, well, so was Soros. He helped his Christian family round up Jews for slaughters. Soros is basically a kapo.
