Is George Soros a racist?

From Foxfier:

Allen West targeted by new Soros-backed SuperPAC – Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

07 12 12

I have mentioned before how Allen West is on the top 10 target list for Democrats this year, Dem SuperPAC targeting “Tea Party 10″.

For that reason, among others, West is on the Operation Counterweight list, and we have a separate Focus Page with his website and other links.

Now a SuperPAC has been formed specifically to get rid of West, as reported by The Shark Tank:

via » Allen West targeted by new Soros-backed SuperPAC – Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion.

We have had some people who have equated suspected that opposition to President Obama’s policies must be motivated by racism. Well, Representative Allen West (R-FL-22) is black, so, by using the logic that some other people have used, shouldn’t we at least suspect that George Soros’ opposition to Mr West could be motivated by racism?

Now, whether Mr Soros is actually a racist is something about which I have absolutely no information. But Foxfier’s brief article points out the silliness of the position that opposition to a black person’s policies must be motivated by racism. Then-Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) presented a health care plan fairly similar to what was passed into law; had she been elected, and a stimulus plan and universal health care plan been passed, would our liberal from Lewes be telling us that Republican opposition to her policies must be motivated by deeply-seated sexism?

In 2008, former Senator John Edwards (D-NC) was also running, and was considered the third of the top three candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination.1 Like Senators Clinton and Obama, Mr Edwards had a universal health care coverage plan as part of his platform, one not terribly dissimilar from the plans offered by Senators Clinton and Obama. Had Senator Edwards won the nomination, and the general election, he would have attempted to get his health care plan passed,2 and probably some sort of stimulus plan in 2009; would Republican opposition to those have proved that we hated white men? For that matter, had former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) won the 2008 Republican nomination,3 and proposed something like the Massachusetts plan known as RomneyCare, and we opposed that, would that have made us, well, what now?

What it would have made us are people who supported or opposed given political positions or policies on principles, not on the race or gender of the politician promoting them. More, it makes us people who believe that a person’s race should not define his political positions. As noted here, when our Democrat from Delaware opined that we evil Republicans must hate blacks and women and Mormons and Hispanics and homosexuals and non-Christians, John Hitchcock’s list of endorsements just happened to be loaded up with the groups that our frequent Democratic commenter assured us we, and he, must hate, and, coincidentally enough, didn’t include even one Anglo white male.4

Why? Because Mr Hitchcock was choosing favored candidates based on where they stood, not for whom they were; he was selecting based upon the content of their character, not the color of their skin. In favoring Ted Cruz for the Texas Republican senatorial nomination, he is favoring a man running against a solid, Anglo white male, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst (R-TX)

You see, that’s what real conservatives do. We aren’t looking at people’s race or religion, but at their beliefs and political positions. We want to unite people who are Americans as Americans, not divide them into separate groups, selecting some for favored treatment and others for special burdens. And that is the primary thing that separates us from the liberals.

  2. Dana, there is no need to act apologetic to these left wingers. We don’t need to explain anything to them. They need to explain to us why Obama’s record is so lousy.

  3. Is George Soros a racist?

    Well, to be specific, I have to say that I just don’t know for sure one way or the other, and it would be wrong to base a judgment like that on the little information I have.

    Although his collaboration with NAZIs against fellow Jews in WW II could be used to support an accusation of racist animosity, it might only indelibly mark Soros as a greedy opportunistic bully who got rich and protected himself by informing on his neighbors to the GESTAPO.

  4. Unquestionably, Dems do harbor a particularly virulent hatred for women and minority Republicans. They’re considered to be traders to their race or gender, turncoats, treacherous creatures deserving of the most public vilifications.

    The shamefully dishonest assault on Clarence Thomas is a prime example, as are the continuing despicably underhanded attacks on Sarah Palin and her children.

    Now Democrats have a new target. Allen West is up for political destruction. The reason is only partly because he opposes their agenda, lots of GOP office holders oppose Democrat initiatives. Allen West has been specifically targeted because he’s a black man who opposes their agenda.

    Is it racism or sexism? Not exactly, not in any exclusive sense. But race and gender are the defining elements which focus Democrat hatred on women and minority Republicans.

    Yet, there are also elements of betrayal too. Democrats become absolutely infuriated, they can’t accept that individuals might think and act according to their own convictions and not as obedient members of an otherwise reliable client constituency.

    That’s the signal for Democrats go postal on women and minority Republicans. The hatred is motivated by a complex interaction of disappointed racial expectations and a sense of political betrayal.

    Don’t underestimate the depth of Democrat rage. For them, it’s personal, women and minority Republicans represent the most dangerous threat they could possibly face, and they’ll stop at nothing to destroy that threat, as we have witnessed.

    As much as I’d like to hold that against him, he was 15 years old and younger during World War II. There was so much bad stuff going on then, that I’m not about to condemn any child for doing what he had to do to survive.

  6. Editor, George Soros as an adult senior citizen declared absolutely no remorse in his actions to enrich himself at the cost of the very lives of fellow Jews. In fact, as an adult, George Soros was convicted of the crime of insider trading as the multi-billionaire used his power and influence to violate the Law to further enrich himself at the cost of the “little people”.

    The acts of a child can be excused if the adult admits that his childish acts were wrong. George Soros does not do that. On the contrary, he is proud of his actions in immorally stripping fellow Jews of their property for his financial benefit.

  7. Gotta go with John Hitchcock on this one Mr. Editor. Soros is really the scum of the earth, thank God he’s on the other team.

  8. It is rather interesting that when George Soros attacks Allen West, it is racism, but when a winger attacks President Obama, it is not racism. Go figure! Oh, I know, it’s double-speak, a well-known characteristic of wingers.

    Boy, did you ever miss it! This article was pointing out the silliness of your attempts to paint all criticism of President Obama as racism.
