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

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, 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.”

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 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.

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

Thank you for the Ping! This year (of the Dragon) will prove to be interesting, to put it mildly. Hope everyone possibly in harm’s way has invested in precious metal: lead.
