Evil Bolshevik Billionaire George Soros Donates Millions To Marijuana Hippies

by Riley Waggaman

Remember when George Soros gave a million dollars to Media Matters and bragged about it? Well now he is funneling millions of dollars to California marijuana smokers. How does this man sleep at night? He doesn’t, because he is a Communist Vampire who kidnaps children and then forces them to eat pot brownies:

A Sept. 30 Public Policy Institute of California poll showed the Proposition 19 ballot initiative leading by a 52-41 percent margin a week after a Field Poll showed the measure up by seven points.

Now with recent polls showing Proposition 19 rapidly losing support, billionaire fund manager, philanthropist and marijuana legalization advocate George Soros is coming to the rescue and donating $1 million for the closing campaign to pass the initiative.

“Our marijuana laws are clearly doing more harm than good,” Soros wrote in an opinion piece, “Why I Support Legal Marijuana,” that was published in today’s edition of The Wall Street Journal. His column and cash comes after blistering attacks on Proposition 19 by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and former national directors of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

George is also getting a tattoo of a pot leaf and a "13" and a "420" on his bicep to show his support.

x111e7thst October 27, 2010 at 9:51 am

He asked for a "13" but they drew a "31"

Are you telling me they weren't high when they elected governors like Nixon, Reagan, and Scwartzenegger?

V572625694 October 27, 2010 at 11:27 am

Ha, you must be loaded: Nixon was never goobernor.

Mahousu October 27, 2010 at 11:39 am

But at least we got to kick him around again.

Monsieur_Grumpe October 27, 2010 at 9:26 am

Soros for president. He was born in Hawaii… right?

Lucidamente1 October 27, 2010 at 9:29 am

Soros got high and realized that his named spelled backwards was Soros.

Serolf_Divad October 27, 2010 at 11:16 am

The video of the event he posted on youtube is a classic. The voice track goes:

"Soros backward is soroS?! Double Soros…. Oh, my God, what does it mean… WHAT DOES IT MEAN?"

Then he starts crying.

Shortly after Soros started trading in currency markets and became a billionaire. He alwas made more money when he was high than when he was not.

True story. You can look it up on Wikipedia or something.

A little Wiki etymological explanation:

"The family changed its name from Schwartz to Soros in 1936, in response to growing anti-Semitism with the rise of Fascism. Tivadar liked the new name because it is a palindrome and has a meaning. Although the specific meaning is left unstated in Kaufman's biography, in Hungarian, soros means next in line, or designated successor; and, in Esperanto, it means "will soar".[9] "

Can my fellow Wonketteers explain to me why Republicans hate George Soros? I have to admit I'm at the tail end of my Flowers for Algernon-type Interwebs facility and can only search for stuff on Wikipedia (in a couple weeks I'll be logging onto AOL with a 14.4 modem again). I'm seriously having a low-snark day, but from what I can see the only real difference between him and a self-made, liberal billionaire like Warren Buffett is that Soros is Jewish.

Oh, I just answered my own question, didn't I?

Alex_P October 27, 2010 at 9:47 am

George Soros spent gobs of money on causes like trying to turn post-Soviet states into Western-style capitalist democracies. Clearly this makes him the BIGGEST COMMUNIST EVER.

In all seriousness, it's really just because Republicans freak the fuck out about anything that they themselves are doing (e.g. voter fraud), so their obsession with him is mostly a reflection of how much right-wing millionaires get to set the agenda for all these "grass roots" conservative activists.

mrblifil October 27, 2010 at 9:55 am

It's random. Republicans are a wholly owned subsidiary of a congregation of huge corporate enterprises doing their bidding. Because of this situation they are open to the criticism of "hey, you guys are just doing what rich people are paying you to do!" Now, Republican political operatives typically like golfing and drinking scotch more than they like working, so the simplest way to counter such criticism is randomly find some wealthy person (with the requisite checkered past) who openly espouses liberalism, and then set the Wurlitzer to "worse than Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and Manson combined." That way they get to play their game of "I know you are but what am I" without having even to think, hence golf and drinking time can carry on with minimal interruption.

Badonkadonkette October 27, 2010 at 10:09 am

What you guys are saying may be true but it's so much easier to say they're really a bunch of bigots, especially since it's also true.

iburl October 27, 2010 at 10:30 am

Here's the winger calculus:
Liberal = Evil
Foreign Accent = Evil
Wealth = Power
ergo:
Soros = Evil Evil Power

Also, since he's the ONLY rich liberal, all the hate goes to him.

BaldarTFlagass October 27, 2010 at 11:05 am

Foreign Accent = Evil, unless it belongs to a certain Australian media mogul.

V572625694 October 27, 2010 at 11:28 am

Rich liberals are traitors to their class, so no wonder the other richies hate them so.

ifthethunderdontgetya October 27, 2010 at 11:27 pm

I think that is the real answer. First rule of Republican class warfare: don't talk about Republican class warfare.

CapeClod October 27, 2010 at 9:38 am

Why didn't he start a front organization called "The Campaign for US American Citizen Taxpayers For America" and donate through that like every other rich prick in this country is doing?

chascates October 27, 2010 at 9:39 am

Pot and George Soros' money will get you through times better than no money will get you through times of no pot.

Wait, what?

BaldarTFlagass October 27, 2010 at 9:52 am

Did you just have a "Fool me once, won't get fooled again" moment there, Freewheelin' Franklin?

MiniMencken October 27, 2010 at 1:59 pm

Yeah, and as Fat Freddy once observed, "Skill peeds! Pill skeeds! Keed spills!"

chascates October 27, 2010 at 2:07 pm

Isn't it 'peed skills'?

JMPEsq October 27, 2010 at 9:39 am

My god, the depths of this man's criminal socialist depravity are amazing; only a monster would donate money to a political cause which he supports.

HistoriCat October 27, 2010 at 11:28 am

only a monster would openly donate money to a political cause which he supports.

4TheTurnstiles October 27, 2010 at 9:52 am

Jeez, Soros! Why not spend all that money God gave you on Liberty's Work! Keep government out of the lives of ordinary people!

except for pot, abortion, being gay, being an atheist/Jew/Muslim/&c, and anything we don't like

JMPEsq October 27, 2010 at 10:00 am

Don't be silly, government is anti-liberty when it makes us pay taxes, not when it forces people to live their personal lives according to rigid Calvinist doctrine.

fuhrius October 27, 2010 at 10:08 am

Soros is awesome. Pot is awesome. Prop 19 is oscillating between majority in favor and majority opposed. if the just say now kids and hamsher weren't so short-sighted and left the culture war frame (pot leaf) off the logo and mailers the million Soros is kickin in wouldn't be required.

mavenmaven October 27, 2010 at 11:39 am

Soros is the coded polite way to say ZOG. ZOG with their Hollywood, and liberal mind control (and of course now their drugs). Cue new youtube from David Duke.

JMPEsq October 27, 2010 at 11:49 am

Kneel before ZOG!

JMPEsq October 27, 2010 at 11:42 am

Sure, because since the end of prohibition nurses have constantly come to work drunk and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

BaldarTFlagass October 27, 2010 at 11:48 am

I don't see what the problem is. Coming to work drunk and/or high is my primary coping mechanism.

Won't someone think of the children!!

When I visited friends out in Santa Cruz in the late '90s, we enjoyed getting high and going to places like antique shops, where we would randomly take the lids off of things and shout "404 – stash not found!" and then have giggle fits.

This will be a proud moment for California.

LionelHutzEsq October 27, 2010 at 4:30 pm

Please, a million dollars will barely keep the campaign in Cheetos.

TanzbodenKoenig October 27, 2010 at 5:31 pm

It WILL get them enough crappy Mexican schwag to roll one monster blunt, though. And then it's like, who cares man?

zhubajie October 27, 2010 at 9:15 pm

There are more powerful things than pot on the drug cart.
