(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) Once again, last month’s outrageous indictment of former President Donald Trump has led leftists to deploy Judaism as both spear and shield for the sake of defending billionaire oligarch George Soros and his anti-American agenda.

Attack-dog media like the globalist Agence France–Presse continue carrying water for Soros, the Blofeld-like Hungarian expat with an affinity for meddling in the affairs of sovereign nations in order to short-sell their economies and turn a profit.
“Republican Party… is once again falling back on their anti-Semitic George Soros conspiracy theories,” tweeted J Street, a Washington, D.C.-based Jewish lobbying group, according to AFP. “It’s as tired as it is dangerous.”
Ironically, France is one of the many countries that has wisened up to Soros’s ways and indicted him for insider trading, even as AFP—its leading, quasi-public news agency—sings his praises.
Among the other nations to send Soros packing is China, which quickly identified his attempt to drive down its economy in 2016.
However, America’s once-vaunted system of civil liberties and God-given rights has been its Achilles heel for this freedom-leeching scavenger, and corrupt Democrats have welcomed Soros’s nation-meddling with open arms as they strive to rewrite the political playbook in more favorable terms.
In its latest Soros apologia, the New York Times—a media company that, like Soros himself, once actively sided with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime—invoked as its authority on religious bigotry the far-left Anti-Defamation League, which frequently targets right-wing groups for persecution via its vast database of alleged hate symbols (including the “Okay Hand Gesture”).
“We understand that when someone makes comments about ‘Soros-backed prosecutors,’ that on its own is not necessarily antisemitic,” ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt told the Times. “But when a person or a political party repeatedly and relentlessly makes wild claims such as that there is a ‘cabal of globalists backed by Soros destroying our country, that is invoking a classic anti-Jewish conspiracy theory, and it should be condemned.”
And yet, Soros’s defenders continue using the same stale tropes of their own in an effort to “debunk” what is un-debunkable: the nefarious intentions underlying his vulture capitalism in America, which over the past two decades has metastacized into a network so expansive—and, oftentimes, secretive—that the only way to identify it is to follow the money backward.
JEWS VS. BLACKS
Leftist media and Jewish activist groups would likely make the case that there is some higher principle involved in turning a blind eye toward the deeds of a man who seems to be shamelessly perpetuating Jewish stereotypes to advance his own self-interest.
It is fine, Greenblatt implies, to personally deem Soros’s policies reprehensible, as long as one does not directly link those policies to Soros—because, when it comes to identity politics, an attack on one is an attack on all.
Unfortunately for Greenblatt and others seeking to inflict punitive measures onto supposed anti-Semites, many critics are, themselves, the members of marginalized minority groups.
If an individual, based on his or her heritage alone, is entitled to blanket immunity from any sort of criticism or attack, then clearly the ADL has something in common with the KKK.
In recent months, righteous indignation has been used to bludgeon black celebrities like Kanye West, Dave Chappelle, Kyrie Irving, Whoopi Goldberg and Ice Cube for having the audacity to question the false equivalence between their own lived experiences and the historical oppression of Jews.
As isolated incidents, of course, the Jewish mass genocides of the Nazi regime and Soviet pogroms may take the cake. But from a systemic standpoint, blacks have the obvious edge in the victimhood stakes.
In fact, Jewish privilege is far more likely than so-called white privilege to benefit the bearer. Studies indicate that Ashkenazi Jews—those originating from Europe—may have IQs 20% higher than average, making them the most intelligent ethnic group in the world, according to Shalom Life.
In terms of “social justice,” the entire moral code of Western society may be built on the foundation of Christian values, but those, in turn, are based on their Jewish antecedents.
In essence, to recognize the role that Jewish identity plays in cultural and political dynamics is not necessarily to promulgate bigoted tropes since some of those characteristics are, in all earnestness, rooted in the empirical reality.
Like other populations when taken in aggregate, Jews do, indeed, enjoy many systemically inherited and hereditary advantages. Some use them for good; others, like George Soros, for more self-serving purposes.
On the contrary, to deny those realities is both racist and anti-Semitic insomuch as it conflates the objective truth with false stereotypes—and empowers wicked men like Soros to exploitatively appropriate the victimization of others in order to engage in predation, manipulation and nonconsensual social-engineering.
ANTI-SEMITISM BY PROXY
Fittingly, while many black public figures have been smeared as Nazi sympathizers for denying Jews their victimhood birthright, loyal blacks like Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg are rewarded and brought under the auspices of Jewish victimhood simply for doing the bidding of their masters.
That Bragg and other corrupt prosecutors have benefited politically from Soros’s financial contributions—including as the No. 1 overall donor in the past election cycle—is demonstrably irrefutable, despite Washington Post “fact-checker” Glenn Kessler’s sad attempts to claim otherwise.
If you're just learning about corrupt Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg today, you need to know he's just the tip of the iceberg…

Thus, to assert that criticism of Bragg’s partisan witch-hunt—and, by extension, Soros’s efforts to undermine America’s system of jurisprudence—constitutes an anti-Semitic attack must mean, in the eyes of their leftist defenders, that one of the following is also true:
- There is nothing wrong with what Bragg and Soros are doing.
- Soros’s actions, however immoral, are reflective of the entire Jewish culture and faith.
Given the nature of Soros’s activities, and their obvious intent to subvert the American rule of law and to weaponize it for political purposes, those who support and abet him in those efforts are, by definition, a cabal.
Therefore, they cannot argue that critics are spreading a false anti-Semitic trope since they, themselves, are complicit in its realization.
To the second point, those who suggest that Soros’s activities (and those of his goyim surrogates) are inherently Jewish may actually be the true anti-Semites.
To re-examine this from a different angle: It is not racist to say that African–American Saturday Night Live comedian Michael Che enjoys fried chicken.
What would be racist, however, is to insist that it is verboten to discuss or question Che’s dietary preferences because doing so risks perpetuating a longstanding negative stereotype about African Americans.
By that same token, suggesting that criticism of Soros’s actions is offensive to all Jewish people is tantamount to affirming that the underlying stereotypes must be true—or that the person taking offense, at least, believes them to be so.
IS HE EVEN JEWISH?
There is one lingering issue that Jews must also take into account before making Soros their proverbial cross to bear: his own past renunciation of both the Jewish faith and culture.
In the notorious 1998 60 Minutes interview posted atop this article, Soros unequivocally acknowledges that he is an atheist. And, indeed, he has said elsewhere that he has a messianic complex of his own.
“It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out,” he told Britain’s Independent in 1993.
He also has boasted of being amoral and has insisted that “normal rules do not apply” to him.
All would seem to be fundamental rejections of Judaism as a religion, considering three of the five books in its sacred text, the Torah, constitute nothing but rules and laws to which all Jews must adhere.
Fortunately for Soros, his religion has come to embrace Jewish atheism as a belief system unto itself—and, according to some estimates, that may include about half of all those who identify as Jewish.
So, is Soros, by virtue of his birthright, still entitled to claim Jewish status?
Only if a confessed traitor is still entitled to retain membership of the entity he betrayed.
In his 60 Minutes interview, Soros admitted to feeling no remorse for having collaborated with the Nazis to identify fellow Jews and help seize their property while pretending to be gentile.
“I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away, but there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there” he told inverviewer Steve Kroft.
Soros likened the experience of betraying fellow Jews to gambling in the stock market, suggesting that if he had passed on the opportunity, someone else would have taken his place.
“[W]hether I was there or not, I was only a spectator; the property was being taken away,” he said. “I had no role in taking away that property, so I had no sense of guilt.”
Ultimately, the question of whether Soros is still Jewish may be moot given the strong evidence that he is, by any moral standard or religious code, a truly evil individual.
It is not simply the prerogative of conservatives but the categorical imperative of all Americans, regardless of color or creed, to reject his influence.
And if doing so constitutes anti-Semitism, according to the leftist authorities on such matters, then Jews must find themselves in a very dark and dangerous place, staking their own livelihood on defending someone who would never extend to them the same courtesy.
