All those on the left may want to issue a collective sob. Their hero and champion, George Soros, is worried that he’s going down. Yes, he’s fretting that the battle to convert the world to his vision of Utopia is all but lost.
This defeat means those on the right may want to have a box of tissues ready for when your leftist friends drop by for cocktails and to stare at their cell phones. Or you could simply pop open a nice magnum of Trump champagne and fill those dusty flutes with a bit of bubbly. Party time!
Where else would dear George feel comfortable grieving than the ever-loving Gray Lady? In an epic length New York Times Magazine article, Soros confronts the reality that the goal to which he has devoted most of his life and fortune has been repudiated and lies in tatters. And this is not only regarding the U.S. — but across the world. Thus, he laments that the last chapter of his life may end in disaster.
One of the most significant philanthropists on the left, Mr. Soros admitted he is “confronting the possibility that the goal to which he has devoted most of his wealth, and the last chapter of his life will end in failure,” writes empathetic Times contributor, Michael Steinberger.
Worse, Soros is worried about his image. “I’m not happy to have that many enemies,” mourns Soros. “I wish I had more friends.” As for his efforts to change the world, Soros-style, he is able to recognize that the handwriting is on the wall: People all over the world understand the Soros dream, but have rejected it.
From the confines of his 15,000-foot Mediterranean villa in the Hamptons, where you won’t find many illegal aliens unless they are mowing the back forty, a pensive Soros even found fault with his mentor, Karl Popper. “He did not understand politics,” he said. “In politics, you are spinning the truth, not discovering it.”
$25M down the Toilet
George Soros threw a cool $25M at the Democrats and Hillary Clinton in the most recent presidential election. Despite the political disaster, as he sees it, the billionaire plunked down another $15M toward Democratic candidates trying to prop up mid-term Democratic candidates. So, the elder statesman hangs on to his dream that Trump will be a “purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020, or even sooner,” because the president “would like to establish a mafia state, but he can’t, because the Constitution, other institutions and a vibrant civil society won’t allow it.”
Even though Soros admits that he was “very afraid” Trump would “blow up the world rather than suffer a setback to his narcissism,” he managed to give the devil his due. He conceded that recent talks with Kim Jong Un were a step in the right direction. “I think the danger of nuclear war has been greatly reduced, and that’s a big relief,” opined the political activist.
And so, it seems the political funeral cortege stands ready for George Soros. But don’t cry, another left-wing gazillionaire will be along to take his place sooner than you can say “Champagne anyone!”
