“But there is one thing I can predict to eaters of meat - that the world of the future will be vegetarian!” - Adolf Hitler November 11, 1941. This was spoken on an evening when Hitler was sure that the Russians were on the ropes at the gates of Moscow. According to Robert Proctor, both Hitler and Himmler had plans to make Germany vegan after the war. Even Goebbels was a vegetarian, but the biggest vegetarian Nazi was Rudolf Hess.
There can be no doubt that for the most part, Hitler was a vegetarian. Hitlers Table Talk:1941-44 shows that Hitler routinely claimed to be a vegetarian, p. 156, 168, 176-77, 333-34, 430-31, 465, 483. While Proctor shows that there is some testimony that suggests that Hitler also ate sausage, dumplings, ham, and some seafood on occasion, it still cannot be denied that he became a vegetarian at some point in his political career. See Proctor, The Nazi War on Cancer, pp. 134-141.
George Soros -- whom we're always told is not serving his own economic interests at all by promoting liberal politicians and big-government policies -- is launching a new investment fund that plans to profit off of the "green energy" boom, which is entirely dependent on government subsidies supported by the groups Soros funds.
As the press release puts it, this fund will "leverage technology and business model innovation to improve energy efficiency, reduce waste and emissions, harness renewable energy, and more efficiently use natural resources, among other applications." As Soros puts it in the same release: Developing alternative sources of energy and achieving greater energy efficiency is both a significant global investment opportunity and an environmental imperative. Cadie Thompson at CNBC's NetNet flagged this.
So, yeah. The big-government policies advanced by the liberal outfits he funds -- like Center for American Progress -- will enrich the companies in which Soros is investing.
But this story gets better.
The press release casually mentions whom Soros is hiring to run this new fund: Cathy Zoi.
Zoi was Barack Obama's "Acting Under Secretary for Energy and Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy." An Al Gore acolyte, Zoi was Obama's point-woman on subsidizing green tech. Now she's going to work for George Soros to profit off of subsidized green tech.
If you remember Zoi's name, it's because of another green-tech conflict of interest: Zoi's husband is an executive at a window company, Serious Windows, which the White House regularly held up as a "poster child of green industry."
