Yep, you read the headline right. This writer got a lashing from a reader who is a George Soros fan and supporter who emphatically states that Soros is not a Communist nor is he trying to destroy America, which was news to me.
You will see it all below. How can the respondent, Robert Berger of New Rochelle, New York be so blind even though Soros is doing his traitorous deeds right under our noses?
He had read my column on NewsWithViews and tripped while rushing to his keyboard to set me straight. His letter is published exactly as received, punctuation errors and all. All highlights mine.
I’m sorry, Chaplain Miles, but your latest rant at NWV is absolutely ludicrous and shows how utterly deluded, uninformed and misinformed you are . George Soros is not a communist, nor is he trying to “destroy America “ and turn it into another Soviet Union .
There is no one in America or anywhere else in the world who wants t to do this. It would be absolutely impossible anyway even ever Soros and others actually wanted to . The Democratic party is more “ communist “ than you are a Buddhist or a Hindu.
Let me tell you something about Soros . He is a Hungarian born non-observant and secular Jew who managed to escape the holocaust as a boy and became a billionaire businessman . He is a US citizen but has no political power or authority in this country . All he does is contribute generously to liberal causes . He is opposed to totalitarian government whether right or left wing , period.
He is not an evil or dangerous man. in any way. The members of the Democratic party in general approve of the charities Soros sponsors , and they are right to do this.
Ludicrous rumors have been circulated , spread by right-wing extremist fear mongers, about his alleged “sinister influence on the Democratic party “. For example, the idiotic claim that the peaceful protesters all over America after the disastrous election of Trump nearly two years ago were “paid to protest and riot “ by him. There were no riots . The overwhelming majority of the protesters marched peacefully through the streets , which was their right as US citizens.
There was only a tiny amount of violence by a handful of opportunistic idiots who were looking for n excuse to cause mayhem . But right-wing propaganda exaggerated this to an idiotic degree . In fact, photos of riots, looting and arson which had occurred long before the Trump protests were circulated by the right-wing fake news to make it look as though there was mass rioting and chaos at the Trump protests.
George Soros is actually a highly ethical and principled man who has been trying to fight poverty , unemployment ,ignorance and bigotry in America and around the world . You have been totally hoodwinked, sir, like so many gullible and clueless Americans about Soros, the Democrats and liberalism in America.
Robert Berger, New Rochelle, NY.
Now that we have all been set straight, we should apologize and hang our heads in shame. On second thought maybe Soros’ head should be at the end of a rope for treason and sedition.
