(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) After years of funding a sprawling slate of far-leftist groups, activist politicians and radically woke district attorneys, globalist billionaire George Soros is ceding control of his $25-billion empire to his son, Alex, who will also retain reign over the Soros’s notorious Open Society Foundation.
The line of succession came as a surprise, as Soros had previously said he “didn’t want the foundation to be taken over by one of my children, as a matter of principle,” according to the Wall Street Journal. In breaking news that the 37-year-old Alex had been chosen, the WSJ reported that many speculated his older half-brother, Johnathon, would take the helm.
“I expected Jonathan to be the one,” said Aryeh Neier, president of OSF from 1993 to 2012, and he wasn’t alone. Jonathan Soros also thought he was the frontrunner, but said “he understood his father’s predilection for reversing course,” telling the WSJ that, “I always knew he could change his mind. As a trader, it’s the thing he’s most famous for.”
As a political agitator, Soros is infamous for bankrolling far-leftist causes that critics claim have led to disastrous results from eroding election integrity to creating criminal chaos. The new Soros junta jefe, Alex, is self-professed “more political” than his father. Indeed, Alex has become a frequent guest at the Biden White House and has a keen loathing of former President Donald Trump.
Despite declaring his intent to champion aggressively radical LGTB and pro-abortion agendas, the public gaslighting has already started in earnest, with the WSJ piece painting Alex Soros as a ‘self-described center-left thinker.”
Elected chairman of the OPS last year, the thinker Alex has used its considerable resources in the past to help Democrats rig elections, bringing into the fold Clinton Cabal lawfare weasel Marc Elias and Priorities USA to challenge election integrity and Voter ID laws in swing states across the country.
In that vein, Alex Soros claimed to the WSJ that “As much as I would love to get money out of politics, as long as the other side is doing it, we will have to do it, too.”
That holds especially true for efforts to sabotage Trump. The younger Soros said “he was concerned about the prospect of Donald Trump’s return to the White House, suggesting a significant financial role for the Soros organization in the 2024 presidential race,” reported the WSJ.
Alex Soros also claimed to be a big supporter of free speech, fretting that college campuses were becoming too cancel culture friendly.
“I have some differences with my generation in regard to free speech and other things—I grew up watching Bill Maher before bed, after all,” he told the WSJ.
Twitter chief Elon Musk, who said that Alex Soros “has been de facto in charge for several years,” remained skeptical.
If @AlexanderSoros is serious about freedom of speech, then we have common ground.
But destroying public safety by electing DAs who won’t prosecute violent criminals needs to stop.
