Dear Tides Founder: Why Does Soros Hate the Right?

Last week, Drummond Pike took his FOX News fight to a whole new level, this time painting all of the right with a scarlet letter. Coincidentally, Salon.com’s Glenn Greenwald had also published a similar piece in much the same vein, only a week prior.

In his opinion contribution piece to Politico titled “Why Does the Right Hate Soros?”, the founder and CEO of Tides Foundation pondered aloud the imaginary reasons he’s fabricated in his mind for the animosity toward the Hungarian born billionaire.

His conclusion? Because we hate immigrants.

This is the typical left. When you don’t get the response you want, inject a new element of manufactured hate into the mix – when you can’t make it about race, make it about immigration. Drummond Pike even decided to step up the rhetoric, implying that George Soros is in danger because of right-wing media outlets and bloggers. But the sad truth behind this piece, behind all of these public letters, boycotts and petitions is that they are all coordinated, and they are all aimed at turning the public opinion against those who do not share the ideals of the leftist agenda…

…Drummond Pike further alienates the right and issues a directive:

But Soros is somehow viewed as the avatar of evil by intolerant right-wing extremists.

It is about time to call out this baseless criticism for what it is: bullying in its worst form, using an individual for political gain…

Intolerant right-wing extremists? So, citizens who question the influence that one single man has on our political system should be called out by the masses as extremist bullies? This seems to me like an attempt to squelch free speech.

…But I’m scared for Soros. He is lambasted by the likes of Beck more than anyone. As the would-be “assassin” recently indicated, Beck says he doesn’t advocate violence — but Williams is probably not the only unbalanced soul out there who wants to “start the revolution” with an act of violence.

…All of us, including Beck, need to take more responsibility for how we speak of others. Especially about those with whom we disagree….

…Otherwise, when bad things happen, we share the responsibility.

Well, some of that’s true. There are thousands of unbalanced souls out there who want to start a revolution with an act of violence. They’re called leftists. Or progressives. One actually worked in the White House until conventional-minded people pressured him out of there. Others participate in rallies promoting communist revolution, like those here and here. Others advocate “killing some crackers and their babies.” If none of those are enough, feel free to read my Twitter stream. I’m sure there are still some rape threats in there.

So, why does the right dislike Soros? Simply put, we disagree with his views on policy, and with his tactics…

…the right dislikes Soros for acting like a bully and a hypocrite. Most wouldn’t deny that some of Soros’s money goes toward good causes, perhaps with good intentions. But it would also be naïve to ignore the fact that the man also uses his money and stature to negatively influence others. There has always been great speculation about how much philanthropic and governmental manipulation, rather than pure capitalism, might have been involved with his investments related to breaking the Bank of England, the Russian financial crisis, Malaysia’s currency crisis, and the decline of the Euro. Meanwhile, Soros’ appeal with the European Court of Human Rights for his insider trading conviction in France remains to conclude.

While he prides himself on fighting to protect open society, free speech, and democratic discourse, Soros spends inordinate amounts of money on lackies who’ll spread mistruths about those with whom he disagrees. His ardent supporters/beneficiaries serve as a silencing mechanism on his behalf, shielding him from the general public challenging his actions, lest they be ostracized and shunned. He invests in an entire portfolio of progressive media that in turn try to intimidate American citizens on the right, for example, for falsely painting the right as racist, extremist, and dangerous.

And if you dare call Soros out on his methods, he will come after you for stating the truth. He will use the very methods of which he accuses others of using to do so. I’m reminded of this in an interview that Neil Cavuto conducted with Soros in 2006, in which the usually gentlemanly man turned ornery and fiery…
