There is a famous quote often misattributed to Voltaire, that goes something like; “To discover who rules over you, you must find out who it is that you are forbidden to criticize.”
It’s not as important to know who coined the phrase, but it’s value — especially in today’s bizarre political climate — is immeasurable.
Recently, a clip from Fox News went viral. In it, former Republican congressional leader Newt Gingrich told host Harris Faulkner that George Soros was responsible for funding the violence of ANTIFA and the radical Marxist factions of the BLM movement. After making this comment, the host and her Fox-employed co-host asked, “Why do we have to bring Soros into this?”
Uncomfortable moments of silence passed. Faulkner appeared to be getting audio from an ear-piece. She then said “Oh, okay. We’re going to move on.”
Gingrich later wrote a story on the incident for Zero Hedge. He writes, “It seems that there is suddenly a movement within all media to silence those who speak out against George Soros — and, specifically, those who speak about his funding of radical prosecutors who seek to change the criminal justice system by ignoring the crimes of leftist agitators.”
The former House leader’s comments ring all too true to anyone who has paid close attention to news and politics over the last few years — while remaining intellectually honest. It has been quite obvious for years that Soros is funding political movements with the goal of destabilizing societies all around the globe. The United States has long been one of his most coveted targets. Only now, in the age of anti-nationalist propaganda has he gained enough of a foothold to inflict meaningful blows against American society.
The left’s primary tactic in battling the critics of Soros has been to label them as anti-semitic, racists… because that’s what they always do.
“This happened to me this week,” Gingrich continued. “While I was being interviewed on Fox’s ‘Outnumbered,’ I brought up Soros’s plan to get pro-criminal, anti-police prosecutors elected across the country, two of the show’s participants interrupted me and forcefully asserted that Soros was not involved.”
The former congressional leader went on to list seven different well-documented examples of Soros money being used to install District Attorneys who would ignore the crimes of political thugs while prosecuting the opponents of the Democrat power agenda.
The first example he cites is that of Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot. Creuzot ran on a promise to not prosecute crimes like theft. He even admitted that his campaign was funded by Soros.
His second example is the Soros Foundation giving over $333,000 to a political action committee whose candidates now lord over the crime-ridden streets of Chicago.
His list of local-level politicians and authorities backed by Soros’ money goes on for another 400+ words — and still, it is incomplete in the name of typographical brevity.
The fact is, Soros’s money is at work to bring ruin to our nation from the middle management level — a feature this new Marxist revolution has in common with many such revolutions of the past.
