You won’t believe the award George Soros was just handed
Billionaire George Soros has doubled down on funding leftwing radicals.
He has called President Trump “a danger to the world.”
And he was just handed an award that had him grinning like a Cheshire cat.
The Financial Times has awarded George Soros as its “Person of the Year” for 2018.
FT called Soros the “standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society.”
The Washington Times reports:
The Financial Times has named billionaire financier George Soros as its 2018 “Person of the Year,” not only for his achievements but for “the values he represents” as being the “standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society.”
The London-based international daily newspaper praised Mr. Soros for his steadfast activism and “liberal vision of the world” despite being targeted daily by anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and right-wing attacks.
“The Financial Times’s 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,” the paper said. “He is the standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society. These are the ideas which triumphed in the cold war. Today, they are under siege from all sides, from Vladimir Putin’s Russia to Donald Trump’s America. For more than three decades, Mr. Soros has used philanthropy to battle against authoritarianism, racism and intolerance.”
The Financial Times’ previous “Person of the Year” recognitions included Susan Fowler in 2017 and then-President-elect Trump in 2016. The president’s profile was less than glowing, with the paper lamenting that U.S. democracy had been “dysfunctional for years.”
Soros is the dark money mastermind behind groups like Media Matters and MoveOn.org.
He has also been caught funding open borders and mass migration groups.
In 2018, he donated $1 million to the Georgia Democratic Party in a failed attempt to install Stacy Abrams as governor of the Peach State.
Recently, the 88-year-old transferred $18 Billion to his political activism organization, Open Society Foundations (OSF).
As we reported, OSF has funded groups including Antifa and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
He knows his time is running out, so he’s going all-in to force his leftwing globalist ideology on the world.
And America is his number one target.
