George Soros on the Coming U.S. Class War
DailyBeast/Newsweek ^ | January 23, 2012 | John Arlidge

Posted on 01/23/2012 4:18:20 PM PST by Seizethecarp

While Soros, whose new book, Financial Turmoil in Europe and the United States, will be published in early February, is currently focused on Europe, he’s quick to claim that economic and social divisions in the U.S. will deepen, too. He sympathizes with the Occupy movement, which articulates a widespread disillusionment with capitalism that he shares. People “have reason to be frustrated and angry” at the cost of rescuing the banking system, a cost largely borne by taxpayers rather than shareholders or bondholders.

Occupy Wall Street “is an inchoate, leaderless manifestation of protest,” but it will grow. It has “put on the agenda issues that the institutional left has failed to put on the agenda for a quarter of a century.” He reaches for analysis, produced by the political blog ThinkProgress.org, that shows how the Occupy movement has pushed issues of unemployment up the agenda of major news organizations, including MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News.

As anger rises, riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable. “Yes, yes, yes,” he says, almost gleefully. The response to the unrest could be more damaging than the violence itself. “It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States.”

Wow. A multi-billionaire sympathizing with OWS. Soros is the puppetmaster behind the destruction of our once great country. He vowed, during the impeachment of the Sink Emperor, to bring down the American dollar. His disciple is doing his best to ruin America. I'd like to see a picture of Soros, ala Alfred E Neumann, saying ‘What, me worry? And for good measure a pic of Obama as Nero, fiddling while this country fades away. Heartbreaking. Our Greatest Generation did not sacrifice for this end to the American Dream.

George Soros would know all about a coming class war.

He'll be the one organizing it and financing it and renting the mobs who will carry out the war.

Any disillusionment I feel toward capitalism was caused by people like George Soros. He's not a free market guy. He makes large bets and then manipulates the outcomes. He's like Arnold Rothstein bribing the White Sox to throw the World Series and then betting against them. Only Rothstein would have had enough class to avoid walking up to the "Say It Ain't So" kid and telling him that he shares his disillusionment.

Exactly. Remember the James Bond villain who was fomenting war between East and West to sell papers and TV shows? Same thing.

Correction:

He IS the one organizing it and financing it and renting the mobs who ARE carrying out the liberal agenda (OWS, Tides Foundation, MoveOn.org, ad infinitum).

To wit, re-read the third paragraph from the article:

“As anger rises, riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable. “Yes, yes, yes,” he says, almost gleefully. The response to the unrest could be more damaging than the violence itself. “It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States.”

George Soros makes no attempt to hide what he is doing and what he hopes will happen. He is a meglamaniacal billionaire lunatic nutjob.

Dark times are on the horizon. Everything is going as George planned.

Mr. Soros will learn the lesson that Cuba and the USSR learned and that Venezuela and Iran are now learning: funding a revolution is a ruinously expensive proposition and it’s a difficult tiger to dismount. Best of luck, Georgie, but remember - one of those rich guys the mob will come after is staring back at you in your mirror.

Once this scum goes to meet his master in hell, it will be utterly orgasmic schadenfreude if the Israeli government goes to the world court and takes all his money as reparations for the holocaust in Hungary.

Yes, that is a real mystery. Could it be that old George has an impregnable personal defense operation surrounding him? He certainly can afford the very best, one would presume.

George S0ros on the Coming U.S. Class War

As anger rises, riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable. - “Yes, yes, yes,” he says, almost gleefully. The response to the unrest could be more damaging than the violence itself. “It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States.”

S0ros: “At times like these, survival is the most important thing,” he says, peering through his owlish glasses and brushing wisps of gray hair off his forehead. He doesn’t just mean it’s time to protect your assets. He means it’s time to stave off disaster. As he sees it, the world faces one of the most dangerous periods of modern history—a period of “evil.” Europe is confronting a descent into chaos and conflict. - In America he predicts riots on the streets that will lead to a brutal clampdown that will dramatically curtail civil liberties. The global economic system could even collapse altogether.

Thanks Jack Black.

Soros connected and funded groups such as the Tides Foundation, and others, were major planners and organizes of the OWSers.

I knew an old man once who reminds me of Soros, a multi-millionaire, decorated by the French...he underpaid his housekeeper, a migrant-single-mother, he also spied on his secretary, a divorced lady with two children; when he discovered she was seeing someone romantically, he spied on her and attempted to have her declared immoral, and have her children removed by the authorities... This man was in his eighties, he should have been declared insane and removed from the opportunity to harm the people he came into contact with.
Soros is a thousand times worse, but somehow the same.
One day I found this man weeping - sitting in his leather chair, the front of his jacket covered in tissues (so his tears wouldn’t ruin the fabric) and when I asked him what was the matter, he replied:

‘Life is too short, I want another life’.

That made me smile and gave me the opportunity to say to him...’see, that’s how you and are are equal...WE BOTH ONLY GET ONE!

Soros is exhibiting a symptom of the fear of death. He wants to see chaos, because if HE can’t live forever, he doesn’t want to see anyone else remain alive after he’s gone.

Mr Soros, DIE ALREADY!

I want him to learn the lesson Salvador Allende did.

“’Some men aren’t looking for anything logical.

They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with.

Some men just want to watch the world burn.’ - Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s Butler

Alfred is speaking of Batman’s arch-nemesis: the maniacal Joker. Joker is the embodiment of pure nihilism. To the Joker, the world has no meaning; life makes no sense. Therefore, the most sane response to an absurd reality is insanity, absurdity, chaos, and destruction.

Joker is unlike most villains in that he is a picture of pure evil. Most villains desire some good (wealth, security, influence, power); they simply use evil means to obtain that good. Joker, on the other hand, seeks no good. He seeks no good because there is no good. And all attempts at good are insane. His only wish is to spread his madness to the world.”

Bill O Reilly just had a segment on his program with COmbs and Crawley discussing Saul Alinsky. Crowley brought up that Obama had taught the class on Alinsky at U of CHicago. DIscussion was not long enough....But it’s a start

Maybe someone can get a copy and post it on Fr. Have often thought we need to keep a list of the Alinsky methods handy...Know what your enemy is up to.

Two things Soros is doing here.
1. Trying to keep the torches & pitchforks from his door.
2. Projection
