Soros Loser

George Soros is donating millions of dollars to far-left organizations like in order to defeat George W. Bush in 2004. Stephen Green notices that this shows how campaign finance reform is a joke.

Soros’ on comments on this issue show that he’s gone off the deep end:

Soros believes that a “supremacist ideology” guides this White House. He hears echoes in its rhetoric of his childhood in occupied Hungary. “When I hear Bush say, ‘You’re either with us or against us,’ it reminds me of the Germans.” It conjures up memories, he said, of Nazi slogans on the walls, Der Feind Hort mit (“The enemy is listening”). “My experiences under Nazi and Soviet rule have sensitized me,” he said in a soft Hungarian accent.

Now I respect Mr. Soros for the work he’s done on bringing democracy to Eastern Europe. However this comment is simply idiotic. There is no rational comparison between today’s America and Nazi Germany. Last time I check Hitler wouldn’t appear in a synogogue telling people that Jews weren’t the enemy as Bush did after September 11. Last time I checked it was Saddam Hussein and not George W. Bush putting people into mass graves. For all this talk about political repression in this country liberals seems to have no problem getting on talk shows and selling books across the country. If Mr. Soros would sit down with those dreaded “neoconservatives” like Paul Wolfowitz he’d find that they share his opinion that democracy is critical to international peace. The only supremisicist ideology being displayed are his – that his political views are more important than those of the American people.

The 2004 election will be one of the dirtiest in American political history. In fact, I’m guessing that we will see an ad directly comparing Bush to Hitler before Election Day. Radical left-wing groups have a hatred of Bush that will be splashed all over the press.

I am also willing to make another prediction – Bush hatred will hand swing voters to the Republican party. There will be a massive backlash against this kind of rabid partisanship as the George Soros radical wing of the Democratic Party takes the helm of the party. If believing that military action against Saddam Hussein is “extreme” than the majority of Americans are extremists. If believing that the United States should work towards spreading democracy is “extreme” than the majority of American are extremists. If believing that Osama bin Laden should not be treated with less scrutiny than Tony Soprano is “extreme” that nearly two thirds of the American populace are “extremists.” At some point playing the “extremist” card becomes patently ridiculous when the people making the charges represent a view that is held by only a minority of the American people.

Mr. Soros would be better off taking that $15.5 million and putting it into dollar bills then setting it aflame. Better yet, there are millions of people in Iraq and Afghanistan who could use schools and education in democracy. Even better, there are millions in Africa who don’t have access to potable water. There are a practically infinite number of causes that Soros could support – it’s sad that someone who has done so much would put his own petty partisanship above common sense and the public good.

  1. I’ll make a prediction as well. At least 50 comparisons of Democrats to Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein will be made before the Democrats make a single comparison of Bush to Hitler, if indeed they ever do (it would be a big mistake).

    Also, you really should move past April 15. Polls in recent weeks show that the “majority” of Americans now believe the war in Iraq was not worth it. With your pathological insistence that black is white, you would be perfect for a job with the Bush administration…but you better sign on quickly. He’s a year away from a going-out-of-business sale.

  2. The line that Max Cleland was compared to bin Laden Hussein is entirely untrue. From Roll Call:

    The spot begins with a screen showing video footage of al Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. “As America faces terrorists and extremist dictators, Max Cleland runs television ads claiming he has the courage to lead,” an announcer states.

    The ad continues: “Max Cleland says he has the courage to lead. But the record proves Max Cleland is just misleading.”

    Now, that’s definitely an attack ad, but it doesn’t compare Cleland to either Hussein or bin Laden. It argues that Cleland did not fully support the President’s anti-terrorism objectives as Chambliss had claimed. (This is factually true as Chambliss voted against the Homeland Security bill.)

    As The Wall Street Journal stated, the idea that Chambliss was compared to bin Laden and Hussein is nothing more than an “urban political legend”.

  3. Jay, you mischaracterized the complaints about Chambliss’s ads attacking Cleland, and you abbreviated the content. It was the juxtaposition of a misleading attack on Cleland’s voting record (the section of the ad that is not included above was an attack on Cleland for not supporting the President on Homeland Security, despite the fact that Cleland supported the DHS before Bush ever did) atop photographs of two of America’s enemies. Now, maybe where you’re from, it’s okay to insinuate that a triple amputee and Silver Star winner is unconcerned with the defense of the nation, but where I’m from (Georgia) that dog won’t hunt.

    And besides…Hitler was democratically elected.

  4. Besides, Jay, Republicans have been avoiding the system for years now, thanks to Mr. Scaife. We’d just like to share in the benefits of avoidance, if you don’t mind.

    Want to REALLY get this ball rolling? Try going after Chaim Saban–I mean “Ninja Turtles,” for crying out loud!

  5. the section of the ad that is not included above was an attack on Cleland for not supporting the President on Homeland Security, despite the fact that Cleland supported the DHS before Bush ever did

    I’ve see the ad and there is no such section. Furtermore, Cleland did oppose Sen. Zell Miller’s homeland security bill and was on record at the time as opposing it. The former Senator voted 11 times against Homeland Security initiatives. Furthermore, even if there’s another version of the ad that did include that section, that argument would still be correct.

  6. That “11 times” line WAS the other section of the ad. And Sen. Miller vociferously defended Cleland when that ad aired, and denounced Chambliss for it. Finally, the “11 votes” also included several that had only partisan Republican support, but no moderates.

  7. The ad was changed, period and it’s been a moot point ever since. Now it’s a convenient excuse for Cleland’s embarrassing loss. Since then Cleland has attacked Howard Dean’s patriotism. I’m sure our friends here will denounce that too.

  8. Personally, I’d vote for anyone who voted against the DHS. This is nothing more than a bloated, unnecessary, window dressing to help people feel secure. A complete waste of time, money and effort.

  9. Soros is a rich ‘SICK’ man. President George W Bush is for Americans. He has a compassionate heart. He cares. We need him. Look at the man – really look at him and for what he stands. It is good stuff. Even if I were a democrat, I would vote for him, just as I would vote for Zell Miller if he were running for President and President Bush wasn’t. Now if I had to choose at the same election, it would be extremely difficult….extremely so. Go Bush!
