During the recent years I have heard now and then about George Soros being demonized in several public speeches of some politicians from various countries. This article catches some of these declarations:
- US (Donald Trump / Roger Stone)
Donald Trump ruled that Americans protesting against him were “professional” agitators. Roger Stone, who has worked for the filthy wing of the right since Nixon’s day, followed up by announcing he had discovered the agitators were “paid for” by none other than Soros.
Republican senators are now trying to persuade the Trump administration to cut support for Soros’s campaign to promote democracy and human rights in eastern Europe.
- Macedonia (Nikola Gruevski)
[...] has called for a “de-Sorosisation” of society
- Hungary - (Viktor Orbán)
[..] self-proclaimed illiberal democracy is threatening the Soros-funded Central European University.
- Romania (various TV channels, some political leaders)
Romania’s socialist elite imitates Trump and claims Soros pays citizens to take to the streets to demonstrate against corruption.
As a funny side note, a reporter even claimed that dogs were payed by Soros and the TV channel was fined for this.
Another article completes the list of countries:
- Poland (Krystyna Pawlowicz)
called him the “most dangerous man in the world” on Radio Maryja, a Catholic broadcaster. She said his foundations “finance anti-Christian and anti-national activities.”
He got in trouble in Israel:
ISRAEL has voiced its support for the Hungary poster campaign targetting financier George Soros claiming he "undermines” the nation’s government.
George Soros's activity seems to be mostly related to promoting transparency, free elections, free speech and a free press. None of these things seems bad for any reasonable person. Also, he is quite old and his figure hardly inspires fear to anyone.
Question: why does George Soros is demonized in so many countries?
