George Soros: Good or Evil?
NewsMax.com ^ | September 15, 2011 | Christopher Ruddy

Posted on 09/18/2011 12:11:32 PM PDT by venizelos

I recently received a chain email with the subject line “George Soros — This Is an Evil Man.”

...

After observing Soros for some years now, I have concluded he’s neither evil nor completely liberal. ...

...

Newsmax was early in identifying Soros as a political force, featuring him on the cover of our May 2004 magazine with the headline “George Soros’ Coup.” Our cover story detailed Soros’ influence in Eastern Europe, supporting emerging democracies after the fall of the Iron Curtain through his Open Society Foundations.

On the whole our feature gave a negative view of his activities there. But my own views about Soros’ involvement were tempered after our magazine was published and I visited Eastern Europe in 2006.

...

During my interactions with many of those struggling for freedom... Soros and his Open Society were constantly mentioned by those I spoke with as the main driver for supporting democracy movements. It is no secret that Soros has backed any number of “good guys” in the region...

...

Why, if Soros has been promoting pro-American good guys in former [Soviet] satellite nations, is he viewed as an anti-American bad guy at home?

...

It’s a good question and I am not sure I have the answer.

A thoughtful review of Soros’ politics does not suggest he ascribes to either socialism or Marxism.

...

Reading some of Soros’ writings and speeches, it is clear he too believes in free markets and sensible, reasonable government regulations. He has argued that much of the current economic crisis could have been avoided had the housing market never overheated, if U.S. banking regulatory agencies had simply acted to cool the bubble early on, as they might have in past decades. I have argued the same thing.

...

Evil. His entire life history is one of pure evil. “Rule 303” was made for this kind of scum.

I’ve always thought it a shame that Ruddy was clever enough to figure out how to make so much money and become so influential in conservative circles. He is only borderline conservative himself and this is more evidence.

I am guilty of fanning the flames against Soros. But I have very recently learned that he is a Jew, and so I will never do so again and asking God and all those I may have influenced to forgive me and forget whatever I may have written or said.

"George Soros: Good or Evil?"

Is this a trick question? Come on, the guy believes he is a god, delights in destroys nations' economies, and his organizations support every facet of every dirty, stinking, leftist ideology. He is actively trying to undermine and destroy the greatest nation ever put on this planet. Hw supports widespread eugenics, abortion, and forced sterilization. He supports forcibly reducing the population of the world to levels HE deems suitable. He keeps entire nations in poverty through his manipulation of their politicians and economies, yet lives in opulence, himself. He wants to rule the world and has made sure he is in a position to do just that if things go his way. That's certainly not the description of a good guy.

Shame on this Newsmax editor. This is even worse than Murdoch expressing support for the Hilldebeast.

$oro$ is a contradictory, Napoleonic egomaniac. There may be some occasional beneficial side effects to his actions abroad, but at home he's a wrecking ball. Supporting the Jackass party, Media Matters, the abortion merchants, etc., trumps everything else.

He started out turning Jews over to the Nazis, soemthing he says he enjoyed greatly and feels no regret over. Now he has former SDS people running the Open Society Foundations, and he has spent hundreds of millions pushing left wing causes, including a crusade to close down talk radio, Fox News, and especially Glenn Beck.

Enough for me.

What?

Are you claiming that an evil man, who has (deliberately) destroyed the economies of several nations to amass his own wealth by hedging against the country's money and interest rates, is NOT an evil man just because he is a Jew. (Was born to a Jewish family? After all, is being “Jewish” a religion? Or a race? Or a state of mind that must be/must not ever be protested against?

Many communists - including dozens in Lenin's closest circles - were born to Jewish families. Were they - or those Jews who served Stalin - not guilty of the murders of 23 million Russian people of all faiths?

“...he shot them under rule 303 meaning the the Lee Enfield .303 rifle issued at the time. His meaning being that he shot them because he had the means to do so at hand and that was all the authority he needed.”

Happiest time of his miserable life.

I'm with Glenn Beck on this one. I can forgive the child who did what he had to do to survive but I can't forgive the 85 year old man who feels no remorse for his past.

He is a Jew by birth only. He was a child when the Nazis took power, and his parents managed to get him secretly adopeted by a non-Jewish government official. That official’s job later on was to track down Jews, send them to camps, and confiscate their property. Soros was by then a young man, and helped to do that. He has said he enjoyed it, and has no remorse. In fact he is an atheist, and has contempt for the Jewish religion.

Once upon a long time ago Ruddy looked like a conservative that could help drive socialism out of this nation... he has failed completely. These days I see nothing good coming from his efforts - which are geared toward enriching himself at the expense of classical conservatism.

That means nothing. Judas was a Jew and betrayed Jesus. Heord was a Jew and murdered all the male children in Bethleham who were 2 years old and under. Humanity as a whole is not immune from evil. Soros is a godless, evil man.

He is NOT a JEW. He is an atheist kapo scum who sent Jews to death camps and confiscated their property. He has stated repeatedly he has NO remorse. He believes Israel has no right to exist and is pro-falsestinian. He is behind the movement in Israel to topple Netanyahu’s government. Are you freaking DAFT??

Hmm. Are you seriously suggesting that it is a sin against God to criticize George Soros?

If your comment is meant to be satirical or tongue-in-cheek, you may want to clarify that by inserting the word "sarcasm" in brackets, so people won't think you're serious.

On the other hand, if you ARE serious... well, I'd be curious to know where you picked up such a peculiar idea.

Soros said something about the Iraq war that really struck a chord with me and made me wonder if he wasn’t directly funding the fight against us.

He complained that the insurgents hadn’t been as successful as he had hoped they would be.

"While still in bed, Soros slapped Ferreyr across the face and proceeded to put his hands around her neck in an attempt to choke her," her lawsuit claims.

Soros, 80, then allegedly attempted to strike her with a glass lamp, and though he narrowly missed, it smashed on the floor and she cut her foot, which required three stitches.

As Ruddy points out, Soros had a critical role in assuring that most of Eastern Europe transitioned from Communism to Western style democracy.

That has to be among the most ridiculous things I have ever read. Being a Jew does not give him an out for committing all the despicable acts he has.

"He destroyed that nation's economy! He wants wholesale abortions and population reduction through eugenics and euthanasia. He's trying to destroy the USA! He's evil!"

"Oh, wait, he's jewish. My bad."

Wake up and get real.

Soros is a Jew who, during his early teens, helped the Nazis. I have read that he delivered eviction notices to Jews who were being sent to death camps.

George Soros is the epitome of Evil and a true son of Satan, who sold his soul to Satan at an early age for future riches. His last words will be the horror that awaits him as he joins his hero, Hitler.

Chrissy Ruddy is the epitome of STUPID. To stare evil in the face with all the facts of that same evil at your disposal and to be beguiled by that evil makes you STUPID.
