The Bankroller-In-Chief For The Left And Against The Tea Party: George Soros
Posted By Joseph Klein On September 24, 2010 @ 12:00 pm In NewsReal Blog | No Comments
The New York Times is running an editorial today entitled “Tea Party’s Big Money.” It claims that the Tea Party is not really the insurgent, anti-Washington establishment people’s movement it purports to be:
In earthbound reality, many of the people pulling the Tea Party’s strings are establishment Republican operatives and lobbyists.
The Times‘ editorial is long on sneers, but short on specific examples of its charges. It mentions only three – Sal Russo, a political consultant who established the Tea Party Express; Dick Armey, the former House Republican leader who founded FreddomWorks; and Carl Paladino, a businessman from Buffalo New York who is the Republican nominee for governor of New York.
Soros is a living example of the motto: “He who has the gold makes the rules.” He has the gold (literally, I should add) and has poured many millions of dollars into shoring up the base of the Democratic Party to help the Obama-Pelosi-Reid team take over Washington.
Soros created the Open Society Institute (OSI), which serves as the flagship of a network of Soros foundations that donate tens of millions of dollars each year to a wide array of individuals and organizations that share his progressive agenda. One of many of these phony peoples’ organizations is MoveOn.org, which helped propel Barack Obama to the presidency.
Indeed, Soros was instrumental in creating the so-called “Shadow Party” – the nationwide network of unions, non-profit activist groups, and think tanks whose agendas are ideologically to the left, and which are engaged in campaigning for the Democrats. This network’s activities include fundraising, get-out-the-vote drives, political advertising, opposition research, and media manipulation.
Soros is also a proponent of a society that is only open to his ideas. As I described yesterday on this blog, he is no friend of the free speech. Thus, it is ironic, to say the least, that the New York Times – which won the landmark Supreme Court case establishing the priority of a robust free press over the sensibilities of public figures like Soros – is not bothererd by Soros’ bullying tactics.
The latest example of Soros’ bullying tactics involves his funding of attempts to intimidate the Tea Party movement. Soros is reportedly helping to fund a website designed to go after the Tea Party movement. Teapartytracker.org will post video interviews and blog entries gathered by smear agents of the Left who can’t stand the very idea of a grassroots conservative political effort. Expect planted signs, ‘selective’ editing and out-of-context quotes. Who knows how far they will go to try and embarras the Tea Party? I wouldn’t put it past them to stage their own videos.
