The Accusations Against George Soros As A Conspirator Are False
Hungary is the birthplace of George Soros, and he attended the London School of Economics. His career in finance began with his position at a merchant bank, and he later established himself on Wall Street. He began his first hedge fund for $12 million in 1969, and made a large profit shorting the British pound. This caused him to be referred to as the man who broke the Bank of England. He developed Soros Fund Management, and hired Dawn Fitzpatrick in 2017 to manage his investment portfolio. George Soros supports liberal causes, and is one of President Trump’s fiercest critics.After Donald Trump assumed the presidency, protestors believed the liberal protest movements were being funded, and controlled by some of the world’s wealthiest individuals. Although there is no truth to the theory, George Soros has been targeted in the conspiracy theory. There is no doubt George Soros is a powerful, and wealthy man with a worth of $25 billion. This has placed him in the middle of conspiracy theories since the 1990’s. These theories target individuals on the right, and are made by the people on the left.
George Soros attracted major attention when he helped groups trying to block the reelection bid of George W. Bush in 2004. The combination of his political involvement, and his speeches against the war in Iraq started conspiracy theories still in existence, and he was accused of secretive plots. The theories become outrageous and include George Soros scheming with the elite of the world to destroy the global currency. Some accusations are true and include his support for refugees, migrants, and reform in the criminal justice system.The choice made by George Soros to use his wealth in the political arena is not any different from the billions donated to the Republicans by David, and Charles Koch. Many of the European countries who have governments leaning to the right are against George Soros, and he has been called the euro’s enemy.
Despite the accusations of secrecy, and schemes, he has not made a secret of his desire for social justice. He has spent $1.6 million developing democratic policies in Eastern Europe, and $1.5 million on democratic governance, criminal justice, and immigration reform. There have been numerous speculations this is due to his flight from Nazi persecution.The theories George Soros is responsible for the ills of the world is being generated by the right-wing commentators. He is simply viewed as a threat to those who disagree with his views. The description of him as an extremist, a man who wants to legalize drugs, open borders, and legalize euthanasia, and participate in secret plots is patently ridiculous. The problem is once he referred to President Trump as a would-be dictator, the chances of him having any friends on the right became a near impossibility.
