What country does your brainwashing say Soros supports us from...since he's an American citizen AND, by the definition of the Right, should have massive influence since they claim Dollars=Votes?

He does do some terrible things that folks like you may not approve of - like helped legalize pot here in MA (with the local libertarians) and helps children:

"In August 2009, Soros donated $35 million to the state of New York to be earmarked for underprivileged children and given to parents who had benefit cards at the rate of $200 per child aged 3 through 17, with no limit as to the number of children that qualified"

He is exactly the guy who is trying to counter the Russian and Nazi stuff.....so, in effect, you expose yourself of supporting those ideals (closed societies, authoritarianism) if you don't like his "open society and democratic" initiatives.

That's your right - to like communism and authoritarianism, but it's not an American tradition.

Moscow Mitch is proving to be quite a pawn for the Russians.

Why give them $780 million more ?
Why? Because the funds are for a different purpose. The $380M from march last year was distributed to states on a per-capita basis for beefing up security of infrastructure. Large IT projects like this take a lot of planning. You don't just go out and blow $380M without a plan.

The new bills among other things included funding to upgrade voting machines to be auditable. Those funds would be distributed to the states that need it the most and have non-compliant voting machines. It's different money, distributed in different ways and for different purposes. It's all important.

George Soros would be the antithesis of what "an" American should be. He is a dark money player who destructively meddles in the affairs of individuals, businesses and countries.

Soros graduated from the London School of Economics and like Warren Buffet is a keen investor.

He is richer than Trump, and there have been no credible accusations money laundering etc.

Through his Open Society Foundations, he has donated more than $30 billion around the world to
“build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.”

https://www.cheatsheet.com/money-car...-he-have.html/

Soros Media Matters for America, Center for Public Integrity, Human Rights Watch, funds for underprivileged children, anti-war studies, poor in Africa ... all sounds like something RW folks would look down on.

Strange as it may seem to you, many Americans are interested in a free press, public integrity, human rights, caring for the less fortunate, tolerant democracies ...

Odd, eh?

GS is a anti semite and during WWII, in his native country, worked with the nazi's to identfy jews. He currently supports marxist organizations and has been linked to antifa. He also supports organizations and policies that promote chaos , for personal financial gain, throughout the world.

In his autobiography, entitled Soros on Soros, he described how as a teenager he helped to cart off the stolen possessions of Hungarian Jewish men, women and children after they were rounded up and transported to death camps. During a 60 minutes interview he was asked if he felt guilty about that.... his reply "No".

There's the dark side of your hero. He's A friggin nazi lover who openly is anti semitic and makes money off of illicit activities.

If there is one person who is hated more in politics than Trump, and the Squad, it HAS to be Mitch McConnell.

Why does he hate America so much? This isn't the first time he has blocked things against Russia, clearly he has more vested interest in Russia and a few select oligarchs, than he does the USA.

McDonnell knows, Donald Trump has no prayer without Vladimuir Putin's interference in 2020. That's why McConnell is blocking all election security bills.
