George Soros is delighted that chaos is coming to his adopted homeland.

“In the crisis period, the impossible becomes possible,” the anti-American financier told Newsweek in a recent interview, restating the Alinskyite adage that a good crisis is a terrible thing to waste.

“I am not here to cheer you up. The situation is about as serious and difficult as I’ve experienced in my career,” Soros says. “We are facing an extremely difficult time, comparable in many ways to the 1930s, the Great Depression. We are facing now a general retrenchment in the developed world, which threatens to put us in a decade of more stagnation, or worse. The best-case scenario is a deflationary environment. The worst-case scenario is a collapse of the financial system.”

Like some of the more dimwitted commentators on economics, Soros loves to spew the usual socialist drivel about so-called market fundamentalism running amok as if he were living during the Cleveland administration. “The collapse of the Soviet system was a pretty extraordinary event, and we are currently experiencing something similar in the developed world, without fully realizing what’s happening.”

To people like Soros, the mortgage bubble was caused by the Snidely Whiplashes of the financial world, not by venal real-life politicians like Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and the monstrous financial blunderers known as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Free markets are to blame even though they have never been tried.

As the U.S. economy continues to deteriorate, anger will grow and rioting in the streets is sure to follow. “It’s already started,” he says. “Yes, yes, yes,” Soros adds “almost gleefully,” Newsweek writer John Arlidge editorializes.

For years Soros has longed for an opportunity to transform America into a socialist state. “The system we have now has actually broken down, only we haven’t quite recognized it and so you need to create a new one and this is the time to do it,” he said in 2009 as he created the Institute for New Economic Thinking with a $50 million endowment.

This Communist sympathizer co-founded the ultra-secretive Democracy Alliance, a billionaires’ club that funds leftist political infrastructure. He has said that European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now” and favors American decline. Soros praises Red China effusively, saying the totalitarian nation has “a better-functioning government than the United States.”

    Now I am going to go out and arm myself like a good citizen so I can revolt against this numbnut. Long live America : (=

  • Spider

    You just have to love a Billionaire Nazzi Collaberating Jew telling hardworking and free Americans we would be better off as Poor Atheistic Communists. Could there possibly be a bigger Hypocrite in the universe than prune faced George?

  • Eric G

    His family in Hungary epitomized the free market — pander to the people with money (Nazis), find out what they desire (information on Jews and those who hide them), and provide what they desire for a price. Nothing personal, just good business.

    Judeo-Christian ethics and all sense of morality have no place in his world.

    • mrbean

      Capitalists do not embrace Marxism nor one world government. Soros is a "Money Changer" who manipulates and moves currencies around to make his money.

    • RonL

      The Arrow Cross regime in Hungary was not Free Market. And what part of National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party says capitalism to you?

      • Eric G

        Maybe my point is not clear to some — Soros is a hypocrite. He denounces capitalism while investing money his family made providing what the consumer (the Nazis) wanted. My "nothing personal…" comment was meant to convey *his* attitude.

  • BS77

    He reminds me of the evil number 1 in the old James Bond films…..with the little white cat. Soros is a blight on the planet.

    • PAthena

      The middle name of George Soros should be "Moriarty" (see Sherlock Holmes).

  • BLJ

    Someone needs to take this piece of crap out. The method is up to them. Just do it.

  • Wesley69

    Soros has made a living on the backs of many people on this planet. He is truly as despictable man, who thinks he can play god manipulating the life of a country through its currency. That he should be talking about the welfare of the 99% is laughable. Don't expect him to be giving up his 1% status. He is no kindly old grandfather directing his children toward political change through democratic means. He wants chaos. He wants revolution. Soros wants to do is be the puppet master in the New World Power. These Occupy Wallstreet people are his army, his useful idiots.

    I hope he'll end up as Caucescu ;)

  • Brujo Blanco

    Any American that gives this kapo any degree of consideration needs counseling. Soros wants this country destroyed by any means available.

  • sidefillipe

    Cheers! Under socialism, all underprivileged people (i.e. people who make less than G. Soros does) would have the right to take all his assets and re-distributed among the people. Isnt' that great?

  • PAthena

    Isn't George Soros an important financier of President Barack Obama?

  • The concerned

    I vish that the Israilies will hunt down this animal like they did other natzis. He probably has a lot of inocent Jews blood on his hands, as he was turning the Jews to Natzis. He is a criminal

  • "gunner"

    soros, while he may consider himself "a kind of god" is mortal, like any other man, and subject to all the ills of mankind, including senility and ultimately, death. he is, i believe, in his 80s now, and no matter how he tries he will soon, one day have to pay the ferryman. personally, i hope someone steals the pennies from his eyes when that day comes

  • Ghostwriter

    I'm amazed that Soros is a citizen of this country. He doesn't seem to like it too much.

  • Questions

    "Soros" is a palindrome. The spelling is the same backward as it is forward. This might explain the guy's reverse image of the world.

      That low IQ article is all propaganda and you just fell for it. Who's dumb now?

  • Atikva

    Soros, 81 Hessel, 94, Carter, 87 : instead of making serious preparations for their appearance before the Higher Authority that can’t be fooled, these guys seem to have nothing better to do but to aggravate their already serious cases by relentlessly contributing to the destruction of the Western civilization. Are their brains becoming so soft they can’t grasp any shred of reality any more?

    • Eric G

      "…instead of making serious preparations for their appearance before the Higher Authority that can’t be fooled"

      Unfortunately their narcissism removes their ability to even imagine any authority higher than themselves.

  • Steve Chavez

    Didn't someone in OCCUPY DC throw two smokes bombs over the White House fence? Any arrests? Is there an investigation? If it were the Tea Party don't you think they would be labeled "terrorists" by Janet Napolitano by now and ANYONE CONNECTED TO AND/OR FUNDING THEM WOULD BE ARRESTED! WHY IS THIS INCIDENT NOT GETTING COVERAGE?

    ANYONE FUNDING OCCUPY are supporting anarchy, murders, rapes, stabbings, drugs, drunks, property damage, and all with the goal of overthrowing the United States WHICH IS REVENGE FOR THE FALL OF THE SOVIET UNION, A COUNTRY SOROS, THE LEFT, AND ESPECIALLY OBAMA, LOVED MORE THAN THEIR OWN COUNTRY!!!

      Why can't America revoke his citizenship an deport him? I wish it was possible.

    You do realize that the OWS "crowd" is a fringe group, at best, right? A few thousand, spread all across the US. The really hardcore group willing to do violence is even smaller than that. Plus, there is no Occupy "movement" outside the US. As for their violence. What violence? They're already turning on each other.

    Do you know who was scary? The German RAF, the Japanese Red Army. Those were scary and dangerous. The OWS is a bunch of spoiled American brats, nothing more. They can't even remotely compete with those real terror groups.

    At "best" what you'll see is the rise of a group like the German RAF, which the German police these days is actually expecting. But that will be it.

    You're giving these people far too much credit. They are a disorganised fringe group of lunatics. The vast majority of them would accidentlly kill themselves with weapons. They're not smart enough.

    And Soros is primarily worried about his investment. The Euro is going down. The EU is going to fall apart. That is inevitable, and that scares the crap out of Soros, cause that means a lot of his precious money will be gone.

    Mr. Soros is strongly suggesting that democracy and capitalism have been the Left's main impediment in imposing their DYSTOPIA on America. According to him, the US would function better if we dispensed with the Constitution and our democratic system. Autocratic systems, like that of China, would facilitate the achievement of the Left's demands for 'social justice', 'equality of results (regardless of merit)', and 'inequality of income', to name a few of their goals. Obama recently suggested the same notion by stating that our country would function more effectively is it simulated the system of the military, whereby he gives the orders and the rst of us simply obey. So he and Mr. Soros are hoping that the OWS movement will generate enough chaos and rebellion that our 200-year old republic would crash and burn. He and Obama are guiltly of treachery and treason. That will one day become very clear but by then it will be too late to stop them just as was the case with Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mao – to name a few 'progressive socialists'.

    Whataccounts for Soros' s stupidity. First he wants to appear to be an "intellectual". Just read his incoherent books. Then when a young man he suffered through the Nazi onslaught. In his view it was the Soviets who stopped the Nazis. Some books out of England support the idea that it was the Soviets with their some 420 division as against the West's l60 divisions. Of course, Stalin said that the Soviets would not have prevailed without American aid but he passes that over. Soros probably thinks that the Russian line that fascism is the last stage of capitalism. That is why he is against capitalism. Of course, capitalism is the last stage of socialism, but that doesn't seem to bother him.
