Skip to comments.How a lie about George Soros and the Migrant Caravan multiplied online

This is the life of a lie.
Three weeks ago, a caravan of Hondurans began walking nearly 2,000 miles to the United States. Their ranks grew as they inched north and, along with them, falsehoods grew, too. But one stands out: a conspiracy theory that liberal billionaire George Soros, a Jewish immigrant, is paying the migrants to make the journey or even orchestrating it.
Members of Congress and the presidents son both repeated it. Conservative celebrities, too.
It also may have resonated in darker places. Cesar Sayoc, the man charged with mailing pipe bombs to Soros and other prominent critics of President Donald Trump, dwelled at length online about conspiracy theories involving the Hungarian-American philanthropist. Robert Bowers, charged with killing 11 people worshiping in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, used his social media accounts to post extensively about the caravan, including circulating an image of refugees in Guatemala purportedly climbing into a truck with a Star of David on the side.
But it began with a handful of posts in the caravans early days.
One of the first was from a North Carolina writer who goes by the screen name lorettatheprole. Loretta Malakie has more than 6,000 followers on Twitter, to whom she directs frequent posts about white genocide, Jews and the invading force approaching the border.
On Oct. 14, Malakie posted a link to an article about the caravan, with a single word of commentary: Soros.

This very Prwellian article says: only EVIL choo-hating white Nationalist RACISTS could think that Soros is behind this! (No matter how many Soros groups are associated with it)
We have video of men passing out money to these “migrants”.
All this ink (electrons) and they never tell us WHO is funding the caravan.
DOH! I get it. Speaking out about this POS is now anti-semitic and the equivalent of the synagogue shooter. I see.
So maybe they can tell us where these (allegedly) impoverished migrants get the money for nice clothes, new shoes, fancy baby strollers, cell phones, backpacks filled with whatever, guns, coach buses, etc.
Was “the lie” from one source anyway?
I recall positing him as one possible source of backroom funding myself, and I wasn’t relying on anything I read to make that supposition.
3 authors? The article really must be full of crap.
“shooter. I see.”
SHOOTER, I saw that movie too ....LOL....
If it’s NOT the guy who has a history of this crap then WHO IS PAYING THEM
There’s got to be truck and food along the way.
Not only that, but the 'horde' was leaving a mess on the streets consisting of FOOD, CLOTHES, BEDDING that was 'donated' to them by people of the towns they passed through.
MSM are panicking bigly.
The Trump campaign would be well advised to issue a verifiable fact sheet of reasons to suspect Soros.
Gaslighting comes to mind....
Gaslighting is an increasing frequency of systematically withholding factual information from, and/or providing false information to, the victim - having the gradual effect of making them anxious, confused, and less able to trust their own memory and perception.
Right up there with claiming “fake but accurate”.
If its NOT the guy who has a history of this crap then WHO IS PAYING THEM?
....one of the several foundations or charities Soro's money supports is my guess.
That is the narrative they are trying to set.
The Ministry of Propaganda has been working on the a narrative of white nationalists for a while.
Painting everyone who values the rule of law or even American history as a white nationalist.
It’s their new buzz word for white supremacist.
They want to make it untenable to be for the rule of law and America.
The caravan is organized by a group called Pueblo sin Fronteras. But the effort is supported by the coalition CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, which includes Catholic Legal Immigration Network, the American Immigration Council, the Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services and the American Immigration Lawyers Association thus the acronym CARA. At least three of the four groups are funded By George Soros Open Society Foundation, WND has confirmed.

Wikipedia assay, "Soros survived Nazi Germany-occupied Hungary." Survival wasn't easy. There were different ways to survive. Some were honorable. Some were not. Soros probably got to choose his own story.
I don't like the fact that he seems to wear his Judaism on his sleeve. Something is not right. The mere fact that there is a Snopes entry about how he survived makes me suspicious.
The guy that used to be willing to be on camera was proudly from Pueblas sin Fronteras. I will eat my jockeys if they have never gotten a dollar from Soros.
MSN idiots are experts when it comes to lies.
The lie they tell is so heavy it took 3 of them to write it...
