Skip to comments.FT Person of the Year: George Soros
Posted on 12/19/2018 4:37:50 AM PST by Trump20162020
For a man facing daily attacks for his activism and liberal vision of the world, George Soros was in a curiously buoyant mood on a sunswept afternoon in Marrakesh. He had just visited South Africa, home to his first philanthropic foray in the late 1970s, when he funded black students under apartheid. This time he learnt that Soros-backed investigative media and civil society groups had helped thwart an allegedly corrupt nuclear power plant contract with Russia.
It was a tremendous boost to reinforce my belief that we are doing something right, says Mr Soros. We havent stopped having a beneficial influence.
Influence has come at a painfully high cost for the 88-year-old father of the hedge fund industry and one of the worlds most prominent philanthropists. From his native Hungary to his adopted America, the forces of nationalism and populism are battering the liberal democratic order he has tirelessly supported. The man once described as the only individual with a foreign policy must contend with the rise of strongmen across the globe and a vicious backlash designed to delegitimise him.

Hurry up and die.
Nikkei bought the FT from Pearson in 2015....
A wet sloppy kiss from Roula Khalaf.
Get a room.
Why, he just a big ol’ teddy bear, he is!
Conservatives oppose the Nazi sympathizer’s globalist/socialist agenda, so he must be sainted by the Left.

Queer way to describe a man who has tried to destroy nations’ economies and funds rent-a-mobsters to cause disruption in the streets.
I wish the Mossad wou1d do something.
I wonder how much he paid for that award
He and his evil spawn need to achieve room temperature.
Hoping that the next Man of the Year Soros cover has the additional line: “1930 - 2018”.
those who can’t access this can read it via outline.com - it’s unbelievable. some more excerpts:
The Financial Timess choice of Person of the Year is usually a reflection of their achievements. In the case of Mr Soros this year, his selection is also about the values he represents
He is the standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society
He calls himself, rather too modestly, a failed philosopher
One of the largest donors to Hillary Clintons 2016 US presidential campaign, Mr Soros was stung by the election of Mr Trump (he also wrongly bet the stock market would fall in the wake of a Trump win). He had long disapproved of Mr Trump and once refused an offer for office space in a Trump building, but contends that he will be a passing phenomenon: He [Trump] is his own worst enemy, a narcissist who wants the world to revolve around him and has succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.
In the 2020 presidential vote Mr Soros plans to stay out of the primaries and back whoever emerges as the Democratic opponent to Mr Trump
The world, according to Mr Soros, is in a state of revolutionary ferment. But he is not losing hope, even for Britain, where he is encouraged by the prospects for a second Brexit referendum
He doesn’t mess with Israel. He probably contributes mighty to the Mossad retirement fund!
My suspicions that South Africa was/is a dress rehearsal for what is planned for the USA are confirmed.
The Soviet Union and NAZI Germany are history....but the global socialist movement lives on in the hearts of a handful that manipulate governments.
Frankly, they have been winning. The EU, UN and other corrupt socialist organizations are as strong as ever.
Liberty-minded people are pushing back. Brexit, the election of Trump, some of the yellow-vests in France, anti-open borders Visegrad nations, etc.
But they are all losing as well. These are temporary slowdowns on the march to global socialism.
They’re making this guy sound like some kind of freedom fighter - He’s like a virus that has no cure.
There was one article that he had died of a heart attack and another was that he had a cage at GITMO. Where is he anyway?
One Southwark Bridge, London, UK
Country United Kingdom
>>In the 2020 presidential vote Mr Soros plans to stay out of the primaries and back whoever emerges as the Democratic opponent to Mr Trump
George Soros has been focusing his campaign efforts on local and regional elections. He’s been buying District Attorneys.
Stay out of ALL primaries? I seriously doubt it.
