George Soros, billionaire, Democrat donor, modern day super villian, declared “Democracy is now in crisis” in an op-ed for Project Syndicate. Soros wrote his essay as a response to the election of Donald J. Trump.
“Even the U.S., the world’s leading democracy, elected a con artist and would-be dictator as its president.”
“Would be dictator”? Takes one to know one, George. After years of attempting to influence US policy, that’s a rich critique coming from Soros, who is many things, self aware is not one of them…
“Although Trump has toned down his rhetoric since he was elected, he has changed neither his behavior nor his advisers, his Cabinet comprises incompetent extremists and retired generals.”
Soros said that while the U.S. would prevent Trump from becoming a true authoritarian, his presidency would nonetheless set back the cause of freedom worldwide.
“I am confident that democracy will prove resilient in the U.S.,” he said. “Its Constitution and institutions, including the fourth-estate, are strong enough to resist the excesses of the executive branch, thus preventing a would-be dictator from becoming an actual one.
“But the U.S. will be preoccupied with internal struggles in the near future, and targeted minorities will suffer. The U.S. will be unable to protect and promote democracy in the rest of the world.”
Soros predicted Trump will appease foreign dictators, sacrificing American principles for his administration’s success.
Suddenly George Soros is worried about the future of Democracy when he sees he may not have the influence over it he thought he did. No one had given more money, nor credence to leftist causes than George Soros. He just doesn’t like the return he got on his investment this election cycle.
