George Soros:

              Guess who does not want Newt Gingrich to talk about George Soros? Fox News, that’s who. Fox News personnel’s reaction to Gingrich’s use of the “Soros” word drew notice on Twitter, a platform on which the former House speaker is currently blocked. Twitter user “Jewish Deplorable” on Wednesday tweeted, “Fox News panel melts down when Gingrich calls out Soros”.

    Bill O’Reilly weighed in Thursday on former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich’s Wednesday exchange with Fox News panelists Melissa Francis and Marie Harf regarding George Soros’ funding of local district attorney candidates on “Outnumbered.” “I’m not going to comment on the Fox News personnel there,” O’Reilly said before launching into a monologue in support of Gingrich’s assessment that, “the number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up.” (RELATED: Newt Gingrich Says ‘George-Soros-Elected’ DA’s Responsible For Unrest) Bill O’Reilly on Fox News’ Awkward George Soros Moment “Soros is using his billions of dollars to undermine the justice system in the United States—and you can’t discuss...
    Conservative commentator, radio host and television producer Glenn Beck on Friday called billionaire George Soros backing of left-wing causes "sociopathic" — and asserted his power reaches the very top of Fox News. In an interview on Newsmax TVs "The Chris Salcedo Show," the founder of Mercury Radio Arts, the parent company of the TV and radio network The Blaze blamed Soros for fueling unrest across this country — and others. "I feel he is almost so disconnected from reality its sociopathic," said Beck. "What he does, he gobbles up the law enforcement," he charged, adding "if he cant change it in Washington or the capital of [another] country . . . hes controlling it by who gets prosecuted and who...
    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich addressed the controversy over his effort to mention George Soros in a recent Fox News segment, saying he was “alarmed” by “groupthink on social media” influencing the news media. “It seems there is suddenly a movement in media to silence anyone who speaks out against George Soros—and, specifically, his funding of radical prosecutors seeking to change the criminal justice system by simply ignoring certain crimes,” Gingrich wrote in a Thursday op-ed for The American Mind. “This happened to me personally this week while I was being interviewed on Fox’s Outnumbered. When I brought up Soros’s plan to get pro-criminal, anti-police prosecutors elected across the country, two of the show’s participants interrupted me and forcefully...
    "I will tell you that Geroge Soros is not to be discussed. It is verboten," conservative talk show host and pundit Glenn Beck said in a video on his Facebook feed Thursday. The video was headlined, "Even FOX NEWS is Censoring Criticism of George Soros – Heres Why." A caption above the video read, "What Fox News did yesterday when Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros was incredible. Everything Gingrich said about Soros is VERIFIABLY true. But even Fox wouldnt let him be discussed, and heres why hes so off-limits: His fingerprints are ALL OVER whats being done to our country right now." In the video, Beck said, when he got down to the end of his time at Fox News, where he...
    Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed Thursday night that billionaire philanthropist George Soros—a frequent target of anti-Semitic tropes from the right—was “getting a return on his money” after his guest said Soros “wants to watch America burn.” Carlson’s remarks came hours after Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner apologized for her co-hosts interrupting and cutting off former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich’s near-conspiratorial rant on Soros, who he blamed for violence at protests against police brutality. Bringing on former Army Ranger sniper Ryan Cleckner to discuss a crime surge in Minneapolis following the George Floyd protests, Carlson and his guest argued that the city council’s vote to eliminate police funding was directly responsible. Cleckner, meanwhile, also pointed the finger at...
    Fox News silenced former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on reporting liberal activist billionaire George Soros funding the prosecutors fueling crime in an election year out of fear of anti-Semitic statements, but they wound up covering up the real story, according to former Fox News host Bill OReilly. "I am not going to comment on the Fox News personnel there; I am going to tell you the truth right now, because Speaker Gingrich knows the truth," OReilly said on his "No Spin News" broadcast on First TV on Thursday night. "So George Soros has donated $17 million to county races to get far-left, progressives into the district attorneys office. That is a fact: $17 million. "Now, these are county races, so...
    Fox News host Harris Faulkner addressed the social media outrage over a bizarre moment when one of their guests appeared to be barred from speaking about George Soros. Faulkner denied the show had censored speech in a statement made on air on Thursday. "So, we had a little incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth," said Faulkner. "And while I was leading that segment we had interruptions and I sat silently while all of that played out, also not ideal.

    One day after a Fox News "Outnumbered" panel silenced former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for calling out George Soros-funding judges and prosecutors, host Harris Faulkner came out with an apology. "So, we had an incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth," Faulkner said Thursday. "And, while I was leading that segment, we had interruptions and I sat silently while all of that played out – also not ideal. "Our guest, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is beloved and needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and respect that the show is all about, was interrupted.

    The Fox News Channel’s Harris Faulkner issued a bizarre statement Thursday, one day after an  unforgivable debacle involving former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. On Wednesday, Gingrich appeared on Outnumbered and accurately tied the nearly four months of rioting to leftist billionaire George Soros, who, over the past few years, has gone into a number of states to financially back “progressive” prosecutors, the very people making all this rioting possible. Bottom line: these Soros-backed prosecutors are making the nonstop riots possible because they refuse to prosecute the rioters. This revolving door is deliberate, and is meant to not only keep the rioters rioting, but to encourage those who would normally fear prosecution to come out and riot. After Gingrich...
    Harris Faulkner, co-host of the Fox News program “Outnumbered,” addressed an argument that occurred on the show’s Wednesday panel between former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and other panelists, specifically Melissa Francis and Marie Harf, Thursday.  “So, we had a little incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth,” Faulkner said. “And while I was leading that segment we had interruptions and I sat silently while all of that played out, also not ideal.” https://cdn01.dailycaller.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Harris-Outnumbered.mp4 “Our guest, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is beloved and needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and respect that this show is all about, was interrupted,” she continued. “Do we debate with fire here?

    Fox News host Harris Faulkner on Thursday addressed cutting former House Speaker Newt Gingrich off during a Wednesday segment in which he had attempted to talk about billionaire George Soros’ support for left-wing district attorneys around the country, but did not apologize. “So, we had a little incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth,” Faulkner said. “And while I was leading that segment, we had interruptions and I sat silently while all of that played out, also not ideal.

    Fox News host Harris Faulkner apologized on Thursday to Newt Gingrich for an on-air incident the day prior in which multiple hosts interrupted the former House speaker as he repeatedly attempted to peddle a right-wing trope about philanthropist George Soros, saying it was “not ideal” and that Gingrich is “beloved and needed to be allowed to speak.” To recap: Gingrich, a Fox News contributor, claimed on Wednesday that the main cause of violence at protests is the “George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up.” That remark prompted Outnumbered host Melissa Francis to interject: “I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this.” Soros, who is Jewish, has been the focus...
    Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner addressed what she called the "little incident" with Newt Gingrich a day after he was shut down for invoking liberal billionaire George Soros. On Thursday's episode of Outnumbered, Faulkner said the awkward exchange the day before "was not smooth," adding that each person on the panel-styled show should be given the opportunity to speak. "So, we had a little incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth," she explained. "While I was leading that segment, we had interruptions, and I sat silently while all of that played out. Also not ideal. Our guest, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is beloved and needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and respect that...
    Analysis Hide In perhaps the wildest twist of all of 2020, a leading Republican figurehead went on Fox News and wasn’t allowed to spin conspiratorial nonsense. Hide Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich joined Outnumbered yesterday to talk protests and Black Lives Matter. Adding his final thoughts to cities that have faced outbreaks of looting and violence this summer, Gingrich said that “the number one problem in all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up.” Billionaire George Soros is a frequent boogeyman of both the right and the far-right. On the right, he has been accused of paying protesters at the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and...
    Fox News cut off former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich on Wednesday after he brought up the role of billionaire left-wing financier George Soros in funding the election of left-wing prosecutors in local elections over the past several years. Gingrich argued that the rise in crime in many Democrat-governed cities was partly the result of the election of left-wing district attorneys who had received financial assistance from George Soros. But commentators Melissa Francis and Marie Harf attempted to silence Gingrich. This is one of the weirdest exchanges I’ve ever seen on TV. @newtgingrich correctly points out that George Soros threw an unprecedented amount of money into DA races all over the country to elect radicals and Fox News basically...
    Video of a bizarre moment on Fox News captured a host slamming on the brakes when Newt Gingrich said that billionaire financier George Soros was supporting efforts behind the Black Lives Matter protests. The interaction resulted in a long awkward silence from hosts Harris Faulkner and Melissa Francis during "Outnumbered" on Wednesday. "The number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up," said Gingrich. "Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros's money. And they are a major cause...
    A Fox News panel scolded and cut away from former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich after he linked liberal billionaire George Soros to the violent riots that have caused damage across the country over the last few months. “The No. 1 problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said to a panel on Fox News’s Outnumbered on Wednesday. “Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money. And they are a major cause of the violence we are seeing because they keep putting the violent...
    A Fox News Panel went silent after Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich brought up George Soros during a Wednesday appearance on Fox News’ “Outnumbered.” Gingrich responded to the unrest in many major American cities that have destroyed businesses owned by minority-owned businesses and communities. “The number one problem in almost all these cities is George-Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said. “Just yesterday, they put somebody back on the street who was wanted for two different murders in New York City. Uh — you cannot solve this problem,” Gingrich continued, “both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are...
    Things got remarkably awkward on Fox News’ Outnumbered Wednesday after Newt Gingrich invoked George Soros as he talked about crime in cities across the country. Melissa Francis talked about the consequences of violence and rioting and people in communities who have suffered as a result. “For a lot of people, they see the numbers around the destruction and they don’t think about that every one of those businesses is a family, is a face, is a person, struggling with no way to support their family.” Gingrich then jumped in to partly blame George Soros: “The number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected left-wing anti-police pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up. Just...
    Things got extremely awkward on Fox News panel show Outnumbered on Wednesday after former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich tied billionaire financier George Soros—often the focus of anti-Semitic tropes—to violence in cities, prompting the show’s co-hosts to directly confront him on why he was invoking the liberal philanthropist.  Towards the end of a discussion on the property damage that’s been caused by violent protests over police brutality, Gingrich—who is now a Fox News contributor—insisted that the real issue was with local elected leaders. “The number one problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up.” he blustered. “Both [Kamala] Harris and [Joe] Biden have talked very proudly...
            by Scott Walker  This week, billionaire financier George Soros celebrates his 90th birthday. That’s a big number, but it’s dwarfed by another Soros number: 708 million. That’s the cash his two principal foundations poured out just in 2018 (the latest year publicly known), and precious little went to any ballets, symphonies, or art museums. Instead, it went into politicized groups like Planned Parenthood, to fight for abortion; the Brennan Center, to tear down voter ID laws; and to all-purpose left-of-center powerhouses like the ACLU and John Podesta’s Center for American Progress. How big is $708 million a year in American politics? Well, the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee combined took two years,...
    Leftist billionaire George Soros called President Donald Trump a "confidence trickster" and addressed the accusations that he is the center of a worldwide conspiracy. The infamous financier made the comments in an interview with La Repubblica, an Italian publication. "There are several strands of these conspiracies," said Soros. "One is that I have built a foundation that actually covers most of the globe. That fits the idea of what was at the time called a Judeo-Bolshevik global conspiracy. Now it's just called a Jewish conspiracy," he explained. "There is an actual, genuine international conspiracy against me," he claimed. "So, when I am challenging the same issues for an Open Society...
    Left-wing billionaire George Soros declared in a Wednesday interview that President Donald Trump is “fighting” for his political life and speculated the president will do “anything to remain in power.” “Even in the United States, a confidence trickster like Trump can be elected president and undermine democracy from within,” Soros told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica. “But in the U.S. you have a great tradition of checks and balances and established rules. And above all, you have the Constitution. So I am confident that Trump will turn out to be a transitory phenomenon, hopefully ending in November.” Soros then proclaimed that President Trump remains “very dangerous,” claiming “he’s fighting for his life and he will do anything to stay in power.”...
    Prominent Democratic donor George Soros called President Donald Trump “dangerous” and asserted that Trump would do “anything to stay in power,” in a wide-ranging interview Tuesday with Italian newspaper La Repubblica. The 90-year-old Hungarian-American and billionaire philanthropist told La Repubblica that Trump is a “confidence trickster” who unexpectedly won the 2016 U.S. election and was inadvertently working to “undermine democracy from within,” per a translation of the interview on George Soros’ website.

    Billionaire Democratic donor George Soros, who is at the center of many right-wing theories, said in an Italian interview on Tuesday that he believes Donald Trump will be a “transitory phenomenon” that will lose the election in November, MarketWatch reported. “Even in the United States, a confidence trickster like Trump can be elected president and undermine democracy from within,” he said. “But in the U.S. you have a great tradition of checks and balances and established rules. And above all you have the Constitution. So I am confident that Trump will turn out to be a transitory phenomenon, hopefully ending in November.” Despite this prediction, Soros doesn’t believe that the real estate mogul will go down easily. As many others...
    Billionaire philanthropist George Soros marked his 90th birthday by discussing his thoughts about the upcoming U.S. presidential election. Soros, who has donated millions to Democrats and liberal causes, said in an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica that he thinks President Trump’s presidency will be “transitory” in nature and hailed the U.S. Constitution’s system of checks and balances. “Even in the United States, a confidence trickster like Trump can be elected president and undermine democracy from within,” the Hungarian American businessman said. “But in the U.S. you have a great tradition of checks and balances and established rules.

    The vast majority of Facebook’s “independent oversight board” established with authority to allow or remove content from the platform have ties to liberal billionaire George Soros or groups he supports, according to a new report. An investigation by Sharyl Attkisson of RealClearPolitics showed that 18 out of the 20 members of the Facebook oversight board “collaborated with or are tied to groups” that have received funding from Soros’s Open Society Foundations. Some of the board members include Evelyn Aswad, a U.S. law professor who received a grant from a foundation that has partnered with Soros. Aswad has also said she believes corporations should align their “speech codes with international human rights law” and be guided by “international law...
    Former House Speaker New Gingrich said Wednesday that America is not in the midst of a “normal election” because the Democratic Party “is owned by the left” and at “war” with traditional American values. “Well, all of these Democrats are now basically owned by the left. They are not going to pick any fights. They are owned by people who are financed by George Soros,” Gingrich told “Fox & Friends.” He pointed to district attorneys in large American cities whose campaigns have been financed by Soros and who, Gingrich said, exhibit “pro-criminal” tendencies. Gingrich said one result of this mentality is that “we are back to the late 1960s in terms of the rising murder rates and rising crime...
    A popular conspiracy theory is tying major figures including billionaire Bill Gates and the late, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to the biotechnology company Moderna. But is any of it true? Hide The conspiracy, a paragraph that has made the rounds across social media, surfaced not long after news broke earlier this year that Moderna was developing a vaccine for coronavirus Hide The paragraph alleges that Gates, Epstein, infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, and billionaire George Soros all have secret and nefarious ties to the company. “The vaccine that is coming… As many of you heard Moderna is in stage 3 of their vaccine testing,” the conspiracy begins. “If all goes well it’ll become federal law to get the...
    George Soros donated more than $100,000 to a PAC that supports St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner. Soros, the prolific liberal donor, cut a check for $116,000 last month to the Missouri Justice and Public Safety PAC, which was created to support Gardner. Soros was the only donor listed on the Missouri filing. As of Aug. 1, the group has spent $104,393 of the $116,000 that Soros donated, with $77,804 paid to Gardner's campaign directly, according to a Sunday report from Just The News. Gardner is facing a primary election in St. Louis on Tuesday. Michael Vachon, a Soros spokesperson, confirmed the donation and noted that Soros has a history of supporting candidates who share his views on criminal justice...
    Longtime Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass refused to apologize to liberal colleagues who accused him of writing an “anti-Semitic” piece about billionaire George Soros, saying the “American tradition” of free speech has been “swept away” by cancel culture. The Chicago Tribune Guild blasted a recent Kass column as “antithetical to our values as a newsroom and detrimental to our hopes of winning new readers” in a scathing letter to colleagues. “The essential point? The odious, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that billionaire George Soros is a puppet master controlling America’s big cities does not deserve a mainstream voice, especially at a time when hate crimes are rising,” the Chicago Tribune Guild Executive Board wrote. Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass refused to apologize to liberal colleagues who accused him of...
    Columnist John Kass has defied “cancel culture” at the Chicago Tribune after members of the journalists’ union attacked him for criticizing left-wing billionaire George Soros and his backing of “progressive” prosecutors across the country. Last week, Kass wrote about “an overwhelming sense of lawlessness” in Democrat-run cities, and noted: “[T]hese Democratic cities are also where left-wing billionaire George Soros has spent millions of dollars to help elect liberal social justice warriors as prosecutors. He remakes the justice system in urban America, flying under the radar.” That statement is entirely accurate. In 2018, Breitbart News reported that Soros was involved in funding the campaigns of “progressive” district attorneys across the nation. Mainstream media outlets also reported it: the Los Angeles Times noted that...
    Getty Soros pictured in January 2020. George Soros is not dead. A rumor appeared on Twitter on July 28 saying that the Hungarian born billionaire had died at the age of 89. There is no mention of Soros’ passing on his website or social media nor is there any mention on the website or social media of his charity, Open Society Foundations. Conservative commentator Bill Mitchell was arguably the most high-profile person to tweet about the rumor. Mitchell wrote, “I heard a rumor George Soros has died. Let me be perfectly clear, this is just a rumor I heard from several unconnected sources. I am making no claims as to its accuracy. Has anyone heard anything about...

    Left-wing and partisan Democrat billionaire George Soros spent more than $52 million in political spending, per Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings, according to a report for the Washington Free Beacon. The total does not include ostensibly philanthropic spending via his Open Society Foundations network. The Washington Free Beacon reported on FEC filings from Soros’s political action committee (PAC), Democracy PAC: Soros ramped up his political spending this cycle through the Democracy PAC, which he created last year to pump large sums into the coffers of other left-wing groups. New filings to the Federal Election Commission show the PAC doled out nearly $17 million last quarter, bringing its total cash disbursements this cycle to $48 million.

Soros, an advocate with deep pockets for liberal causes, doled out $48 million total through his political action committee, Democracy PAC, which was created last year. An additional $4 million was given directly to Democratic campaigns and committees. His spending is already more than double than the amount he committed to in the 2016 election cycle, the Washington Free Beacon reported Monday. Federal data shows that the organizations receiving money from Democracy PAC include groups seeking to keep Democratic control of the House, Planned Parenthood, and various Senate campaigns.

    Open Society Foundation, the philanthropic organization founded by billionaire George Soros, is investing $220 million in emerging organizations and leaders building power in Black communities across the U.S.  The largest share for the investment, $150 million, will be through a set of five-year grants to Black-led organizations focussed on racial equality, the organization announced Monday.  “It is inspiring and powerful to experience this transformational moment in the racial justice movement,” Open Society Foundations’ President Patrick Gaspard said in a statement. “We are honored to be able to carry on the vital work of fighting for rights, dignity, and equity for oppressed people the world over started by our founder and chair, George Soros.”  Some of the organizations receiving the grants...
    If there were lingering doubt remaining in the mind of any New York City police officer that the state’s elected leadership is biased against the NYPD, it would have been erased last week. On July 8th Letitia James, the Attorney General for the state of New York, issued a “Preliminary Report on the New York City Police Department’s Response to Demonstrations Following the Death of George Floyd.” The 57-page document makes clear that neither the governor (who requested the report) nor the attorney general “has the backs” of the largest civilian police force in the country. From start to finish, the report illustrates that the lens through which the state’s attorney general views the NYPD is one that presumes the...

Miller, a no-party-affiliation candidate in Florida’s 18th Congressional District, went viral over Independence Day Weekend with a tweet that linked Beyoncé to George Soros.   Miller sent multiple tweets about Beyoncé Sunday morning and also found a way to call 76-year-old recording artist Patti LaBelle “another Illuminati globalist puppet.”  Miller, who is running for the seat currently occupied by incumbent Brian Mast, made the first Beyoncé reference at 7:48 p.m. on Saturday night and hashtagged #Trump2020 and #QAnon. “Beyoncé is not even African American. She is faking this for exposure,” the tweet said. “Her real name is Ann Marie Lastrassi. She is Italian. This is all part of the Soros Deep State agenda for the Black Lives Matter movement....
    Rapper Lord Jamar says that Black Lives Matter is not the black population's movement and is serving only to distract the black community from a mission of peace and equality. What are the details? In an interview with SCUM, the 51-year-old rapper — real name Lorenzo Dechalus — said that the Black Lives Matter movement was created by leftist billionaire George Soros. "I'm not no Black Lives Matter supporter," he admitted during the interview. "No. Absolutely not. Because it's not our movement. This is a movement that was given to us by, you know, George Soros and his f***ing boys. Because they saw how things were going, and they didn't want to go back to the '60s to...
    Rapper Lord Jamar, a member of the hip-hop group Brand Nubian, sparked controversy when he rejected the Black Lives Matter organization over its Marxist roots, alleging it was created by far-left philanthropist billionaire George Soros and saying it is robbing Black Americans of their own “organic movement.” In a video that has quickly gone viral, Lord Jamar (real name Lorenzo Dechalus) said that he is not a “Black Lives Matter” supporter, citing the organization’s radical views that fall outside its original mission statement. “I’m not a Black Lives Matter supporter,” Jamar said in an interview on SCUM. “You’re not?” the interviewer asked in surprise. “No, absolutely not,” responded Jamar. “Because it’s not our movement. This is a movement that was...

    A spokeswoman for George Soros said people claiming the billionaire liberal donor has funded recent protests throughout the United States are trying to distract from the real issues that inspired the demonstrations. Laura Silber, the chief communications officer for Soros’s philanthropic Open Society Foundations, told the Associated Press Soros is not responsible for funding any protests or providing mass transportation to facilitate protests, as some conspiracy theorists have claimed. Silber said such accusations are an attempt to discredit the motivations of those who chose to protest after George Floyd's death. "I think partly it’s an attempt to distract from the real matters at hand — the pandemic, the protests or the Black Lives Matter movement,” Silber said. “It’s pretty...
    Conspiracy theories that billionaire philanthropist George Soros has been organizing and funding the nationwide anti-police brutality protests sparked by the death of George Floyd are gaining traction online among the far right. The baseless theories involving Soros range from him hiring protesters and renting buses to transport them to demonstrations, to stashing piles of bricks around protest sights so that activists can hurl them into glass storefronts or at police. Amplified by a growing number of people on the far right, including some Republican leaders, online posts about Soros have skyrocketed in recent weeks. They have been accompanied by online ads bought by conservative groups that call on authorities to ‘investigate George Soros for funding domestic terrorism and his decades-long...

    Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, a statewide elected Republican official, has posted multiple memes and comments on his Facebook page in recent days falsely claiming that billionaire George Soros orchestrated nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd. The posts are similar in nature and tone to some of the racist posts by local GOP officials in recent days that suggested the killing of Floyd in Minneapolis police custody was done with the intent of starting a race war or to erode black support for President Donald Trump. The posts from those local officials have prompted calls for resignation from the state’s top GOP officials. One post from Miller on Sunday included an image of Soros with accompanying text that...
    A YouTube video of an interview with a "paid protester" who claimed to be funded by billionaire philanthropist George Soros is currently circulating on social media, as waves of protests continue to erupt across the U.S. The footage—uploaded to the platform in 2017—has been circulating on Facebook and Twitter in recent days amid demonstrations sparked by the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, after an arrest by police in Minneapolis on May 25. In the two minute clip, originally aired on the The Young Turks (TYT) news show, the unidentified man claims to have organized protests with money provided by Soros, a common trope used by conspiracy theorists—and president Donald Trump. The video has this week been shared...
