You know things are getting bad for Democrats when even George Soros is distancing himself from the party.
Soros has long been a chief Democrat donor and, from the perspective of the right, a highly nefarious figure in recent partisan politics.
And now Soros is saying he doesn’t “particularly want to be a Democrat,” leaving many to wonder if he’s joining the rising #WalkAway movement.
Soros has long been called out for his connections to nearly every high-profile social movement, from Black Lives Matter to the Ferguson riots, where his organizations were busted out for paying protesters, to March for Our Lives and the Women’s March.
He is a far left radical who’s influence on European open border policies has been so impactful, they actually recently named a bill to stop mass migration into his home country of Hungary the “STOP SOROS” bill.
So when he recently dropped a bombshell interview in which he declared Obama, whose campaign he heavily donated to, was “his greatest disappointment” and distanced himself from the Democratic party, it’s easy to imagine the direction he’s heading as he walks away is not towards the right.
Shockingly, this was not actually the direction the interview went. It appears despite bankrolling some of the most far-left social and political campaigns of the last decade, he’s looking to distance himself from the left.
Is this real life?!
Fox News shares more of Soros’ stunning comments:
Soros, who also poured millions of dollars into Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run, wouldn’t say if he would back Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. in the upcoming presidential election, but said when it comes to politics, “I don’t particularly want to be a Democrat.”
While speaking with the Times, Soros praised Arizona Senator John McCain and said the main priority of his political activism was to promote bipartisanship – noting that Republicans on the far-right led him to become one of the top funders for the Democratic Party.
But as Democrats set their eyes on November and the midterm election push to regain control of the House of Representatives, the long-term goal of ensuring a Democrat resides in the Oval Office in 2020 remains the party’s glaring concern – as well as where Soros will lend his financial support.Advertisement - story continues below
Soros expressed displeasure with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., for over her use of the #MeToo movement that led to the removal of Al Franken from Congress.
“She was using #MeToo to promote herself,” he told the paper.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pinching myself.
It’s impossible to tell what a man whose far-left politics have caused critics in Europe to label him a “terrorist” is genuine as he distances himself from the agenda he’s been a key player in advancing.
But one thing is clear–many on the left are waking up to the very harsh reality that radical left-wing politics are slowly destroying the Democratic party, and they’ve got to shift gears–and quick–if they want to recover any credibility among American voters.
