You’d be hard pressed to find a more devious, diabolical, and downright deceptive leader in the progressive movement than George Soros. This corrupt billionaire is like a Bond villain in the scope of his scheming, throwing his money to every cause designed to undermine liberty and freedom in America and around the world.
However, it appears that not even he is invulnerable to the rabid left-wingers who comprise his fan base, a lesson he’s now learning thanks in large part to political correctness. Many on the left are turning on their hero, labeling him a “sexist” for his recent attack on NY Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
It’s always fun watching liberals eat their own.
Soros slammed Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for her role in pushing Franken to resign over the allegations. Soros accused Gillibrand of turning on Franken, whom Soros said he admired, “in order to improve her chances” for the 2020 presidential elections.
“With midterms approaching and a larger-than-ever bench of female candidates running for office — and after that, a presidential race where several of the potential contenders are women — we’ll see just how well Democrats, especially those with the power to influence elections, learned the lessons of 2016,” feminist author Jill Filipovic wrote in a Tuesday column for CNN titled, “If Democrats agree with Soros’ sexist comments, they’re in trouble.”
“If Soros’ comments are any indication, there’s a significant chunk of the Democratic electorate — I imagine a mostly male chunk — who haven’t learned much at all,” she concluded.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes called Soros’s defense of Franken “sexist garbage,” which he said “should be lit on fire.” Others made similar arguments.
Vox writer Dylan Matthews described Soros as “misogynistic.”
It would certainly be nice to see Soros lose some of his influence in the liberal movement, and this certainly seems to be the case, at least to a limited degree. However, the man has a nearly endless supply of money, and he uses that to not only fund groups and causes, but to do some underhanded political maneuvering as well.
Some folks, however, are looking for an excuse to overlook his wrongdoing by stating that to pursue the matter with Soros would be poisonous to the movement. As you can see, the left is totally inconsistent in the application of its principles.
