Indians beware. George Soros, the face of evil, has come out in open against you. He has spoken against the prime minister Narendra Modi and stoked fears of Muslims.
Most of you won’t know Soros. But looking at morning’s newspapers or watching TV channels who back “tukde-tukde gang,” you should have some idea of the hold he has on India’s deep and dark ecosystem which hid him from your gaze for so long.
Now he is out in open.
You would also now be able to connect the dots and recognize the political actors and media who are out to remove Modi and leave India rudderless.
Let’s look at him from these binaries: (a) What the democratic world thinks about him; (b) Profile the man who thinks he is a God and what shapes his worldview; (c) Cite his monstrous acts; (d) How he brainwashes us with his hold on media and academia.
The free world on George Soros
- After being ousted from office in the wake of 2016 Panama Papers scandal, Iceland’s prime minister Sigmundur Davio Gunnlaugsson accused Soros of having bankrolled a conspiracy to remove him from power;
- In November 2018, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Edrogan denounced Soros as the man who “assigns people to divide nations and shatter them”;
- The United States president Donald Trump has alleged that cash was being handed out to people in Honduras to storm the US border and suggested the cash might have come from Soros;
- Italy’s former deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini has accused Soros of wanting to fill his country with migrants because “he likes slaves”;
- The leader of the UK’s Brexit Party, Nigel Farage, claimed Soros is encouraging people “to flood Europe” and “in many ways is the biggest danger to the entire Western World”;
- Hungary’s prime minister Viktor Orban claimed that Soros has a secret plot to flood Hungary with migrants and destroy their nation. “We are fighting an enemy that is different from us. Not open but hiding. Not straightforward by crafty. Not honest but unprincipled…feels it owns the world,” said Orban.
Indeed, the Hungarian government spent 100m Euros on a media campaign, warning voters not to let Soros “have the last laugh” in elections last October.
The man who thinks he is a God
Soros, now 92 and one of world’s richest man, is Hungarian by birth. “Soros” means “soar” in Esperanto, the language its believers-like his father did–want to be the world tongue. A worldview where nationalism would disappear, along with dialects and boundaries.
After World War II, Soros attended London School of Economics. He became hooked to the writings of Karl Popper (1902-94), the Viennese-born professor who advocated Open Society, a place where tribal affinities to religion and nationalism would’ve no place.
Once graduate, Soros became a banker and mastered the craft of arbitraging—making profits by trading currencies. He relocated himself to New York City in 1959. He formulated his own Theory of Reflexivity, where if you could observe a phenomenon from afar, you could be on top of it. It allowed him to make massive money in the Recession of 1973 as well as in 2008, and he is known as “the man who broke the Bank of England” in 1992. Aware that the British government was promoting the pound sterling, Soros acquired millions of pounds. Bad press, political infighting, and resignation of Prime Minister John Major followed, pound sterling was withdrawn from European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM) and the currency plummeted. Soros now sold his stuff and pocketed over $1 billion. Pensions diminished for retirees; old people had their savings wiped out.
Soros was beginning to, as he himself said, “fancy myself as some kind of god.” The influence of Karl Popper was evident long before and his obsession with open borders made him launch Open Society Foundations in 1979. The dubious foundation presently operates in 120 countries and has so far donated over $32 billion towards causes aimed at destroying societies, religions and nations.
Soros, the crimes and the proof
In 2016, DC Leaks, got into the Soros files and released them. The disclosure revealed Soros’ Open Society Foundations aim to eradicate national sovereignty. A key paper described the Syrian refugee crisis as an opportunity to create havoc in societies; flood Europe and the US and make the old borders and institutions irrelevant.
DC Leaks further revealed that Open Society Foundations funded groups which had devoted themselves to BDS (Boycott, Disinvestment, Sanctions) in both Israel and Palestine.
In the United States, in order to destabilize the Roman Catholic Church, Soros promoted Left-leaning Catholic groups who promoted gay marriage, abortion and physician-assisted suicide. Bill Donohue, president o the Catholic League didn’t mince his words when Soros’ let loose his forces before the arrival of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States in 2015. He accused such forces of fomenting revolution, creating mutiny and are “front for George Soros…and designed to create fissures in the Catholic Church.”
Another Soros’ initiative is Black Lives Matter, a rabid group which propositions that police are inherently racist. Shrill propaganda ensures that police are frozen into inaction and “de-policing” occurs. (Do draw a parallel with situation in Jamia, JNU and Shaheen Bagh protests which has reduced police into inaction). Open Society Foundations has donated hundreds and thousands of dollars to Black Lives Matter.
Two decades ago, Soros began a campaign to decriminalize marijuana and other illegal drugs in the United States. The stress was on counselling and rehabilitation of the drug-users and not arrest or imprisonment. Poisonous propaganda led many states in the United States to legalize marijuana in due course. But data proves that drug-use has only increased and not decreased. Youth are losing vitality and the social fabric of the society is thus weakened.
Soros’ hold on media
It’s been documented that Soros controls media through actions which are labyrinthine in nature. WikiLeaks has shown Soros’ journalists shaped media coverage of events in Ukraine. His operatives were instructed to “select journalists from the five target countries (Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Greece) and offered them long-stay reporting trips in Ukraine.” The operatives retained a right to veto on stories—and thus they could shortlist and shape what they wanted journalists to write.
There are several NGOs which George Soros operates or finances. It donated $100 million to Human Rights Watch. CIA-created Radio Free Europe—which played its role in the breakup of Yugoslavia—is funded by Soros. His International Crisis Group had luminaries such as Zbigniew Brzezinki and General Wesley Clark, once NATO supreme allied commander for Europe. Stephen Solarz, one the group’s vice-chairman, was a signatory to a letter in 1998 which asked President Bill Clinton to bring down “Saddam and his regime” in Iraq. Soros’ business partners at the Carlyle Group—one of world’s largest private equity funds—made massive profits from defence contracts. These partners included former secretary of state James Baker and Frank Carlucci, former defence secretary.” Again, Soros had invested more than $100 million in Carlyle Group.
It’s easy to see how Soros remains out-of-bounds for most governments. He works through charity and donations to groups he can control or influence. There could be other powerful groups or family houses behind him. He is difficult to pin down, a faceless enemy to societies and nations. Anarchy could lead to weakening of governments; institutions and national assets become up for grab for investor-sharks such as Soros. In the Sorosian world order, constitutional republics must be weakened and its allies degraded.
