Socialist Billionaire George Soros Refuses To Finance Every Democrat

by Riley Waggaman

George Soros claims that he cares about progressive issues, like wealth redistribution and recycling dead people to make new, eco-friendly “hemp people” (and then aborting these hemp creatures, before they become actual people). George Soros is a fraud and a liar:

Mr. Soros, a champion of liberal causes, has been directing his money to groups that work on health care and the environment, rather than electoral politics. Asked if the prospect of Republican control of one or both houses of Congress concerned him, he said: “It does, because I think they are pushing the wrong policies, but I’m not in a position to stop it. I don’t believe in standing in the way of an avalanche.”

But the Billionaire Koch Bros will finance the Teabaggers.

We need this now? Soros was at the

Bretton Woods Committee, which promotes understanding of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

The tards are gonna blow.

Fuck, I can't handle this anymore.

Chet Kincaid October 11, 2010 at 12:45 pm

My Koch is Soros.

Well played.

Soros, quit lurking on 538.com and start writing the damn checks already!

"I don’t believe in standing in the way of an avalanche.”

Even if it would stop the avalanche from happening?

Trinket October 11, 2010 at 1:42 pm

I thought he was making the point that it's impossible to stop the avalanche.

It is poor that our one reliable billionaire seems to have completely missed the train on Citizens United.

housbinfarteen October 11, 2010 at 12:53 pm

And the ultra-conservative, billionaire Wly Bros who finance many conservative causes just got caught for fraud.

Soros is continuing in his evil conspiracy to rule the world by donating money to groups that promote liberal causes, he must be stopped!

Seriously, I've never understood the right-wing hysteria over Soros; the wingnuts have plenty of billionaires funding their causes, and no one's alleged he's done anything but spend his own money.

iburl October 11, 2010 at 1:23 pm

Teabaggers turn the other way when billionaires' money helps their causes, after all, that's just the invisible hand-job of capitalism at work. Liberals have this one guy who sometimes helps out, so obviously he is the reincarnation of Stalin. It's really just that simple.

LionelHutzEsq October 11, 2010 at 1:39 pm

Plus most of the conservative billionaires are gay, so you can't discuss them in public anyway.

Not_So_Much October 11, 2010 at 1:49 pm

It's no accident that their main fluffers are the 'Koch Brothers' (that's pronounced with a hard 'c' at the end, right?).

Mort_Sinclair October 11, 2010 at 1:00 pm

From the linked article:

"But I’m basically not a party man. I’d just been forced into that situation by what I considered the excesses of the Bush administration.”

And the parties thrown by the Bushies were something to behold, to wit: Monica Goodling, Gonzo, Jersey barrier, apple. That's all I'm gonna say.

housbinfarteen October 11, 2010 at 1:00 pm

And ultra-conservative billionaire Willie Scaife called the Godfather of Right-wing funding.

So much for the obvious policy of the Democratic Party which is to rely on enlightened millionaires/billionaires to do the job for them then wonder why lefties accuse them of looking just like Republicans.

Yes, it's nice when celebrities and enlightened m/billionaires like something you said and write you a check, but it's supposed to be about working people, you TWERPS! Stop trying to jack Soros off for more money and get organized.

housbinfarteen October 11, 2010 at 1:06 pm

In August, Carl Rove's American Crossroads raised $2,639,052. Fully $2.4 million of that — or 91 percent — came in the form of gifts from just three billionaires.

And the right-wing hypocrites whine about Soros

Monsieur_Grumpe October 11, 2010 at 1:50 pm

WTF. I could have sworn the last time I went to LGF that it populated with wingnutz.

el_donaldo October 11, 2010 at 1:56 pm

Charles Johnson has done a full 180 and gone liberal on us. Same vituperative style, now directed at wingers. It's actually a great read.

Zvi_Bleindmeis October 11, 2010 at 1:20 pm

<snarkless>Does anybody have the talent and spare time to develop a Wikileaks-type operation for anonymous corporate donations? If the Supreme Court majority is determined to provide corporations anonymity about which politicians they hire and how much they pay, we need a citizens' website and our own Julian Assange to flush this whore mongering into the light of day. Maybe Target and its ilk aren't required to disclose their contributions, but I would bet there are enough moles that would come forward to let us aim our righteous rage or boycotts at the right corporations. </snarkless>

Zvi_Bleindmeis October 11, 2010 at 1:29 pm

Hey Scalia, you want to see some Citizens United?

Not_So_Much October 11, 2010 at 1:56 pm

That would be swell. Even more so if they could also show who foots the bill for Scalia to go shoot caged animals at executive "hunting resorts". Is he old enough to be almost dead retired yet?

johnnyzhivago October 11, 2010 at 2:46 pm

My guess is that crossing the US Chamber of Commerce is more dangerous than crossing the US military these days.

LionelHutzEsq October 11, 2010 at 1:41 pm

If you all have been watching FOX News, you would know that Soros is too busy preparing to destroy the dollar to spend time with something as plebeian as politics. Better stock up on gold and Ameros if you want to survive.

johnnyzhivago October 11, 2010 at 2:44 pm

My understanding though is that the Amero is never going to happen – but that in 10 years the US and Europe will be forced to use "ASIAROS" – the China/Japan/Singapore currency.

johnnyzhivago October 11, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Soros is welcome to launder a billion or two through me – for a nominal 10% fee. I promise discretion, and guarantee no money will be sent to witches, nazi impersonators or relatives of Ron Paul.

Dr_pangloss October 11, 2010 at 11:01 pm

If my vast knowledge of disaster prevention gleaned from the SyFy movie of the week is accurate. The way you stop any manmade or natural disasters is to blow it up, preferably with nukes.

"I’m not in a position to stop it.”
A quarter says you could. That's about what I've got.
