Well you've been told to believe that Soros is evil.
Here's a test, name something bad that he has done.
Other than being told what to believe, do you have any rational basis for that belief?

Here's something bad: after a career of making his fortune in the disreputable business as a currency speculator, Soros made his biggest short in the history of currency manipulation in 1992; as Soros had been buying the British Pound..planning to make a move against it when he felt the time was right. After a German Government demand that England lower the value of the Pound, Soros convinced a few other rich friends to go in with him on a massive sell-off(more than 1.5 billion of his own holdings) of the Pound(which by rules of the time, England had to buy back). This naturally, caused a cascading effect where the selloff continued and European central banks had to step in to try to save the Pound and European currencies from crashing and causing a severe economic crisis.

After the smoke cleared, Soros walked away with more than one billion dollars profit from a days work; and England was forever changed, as Thatcher's inheritor- John Major, was soon out of a job replaced by "New" Labour Government of Tony Blair. With the sudden debts caused by the Soros purge, Blair had the perfect excuse to turn Labour away from 'labour' and into a Conservative-lite government that would continue the sell-off of state institutions began under Margaret Thatcher, impose austerity measures to balance the budget, and continue the de-industrialization of England/while increasing the power and size of the banking and finance industries based in London. No big surprise to any observers in the know when Margaret Thatcher declared that "Tony Blair was her greatest lasting legacy of government!" And thank Soros for that! Any Americans who want to know how or why British Labour ended up putting their 'Bernie Sanders' in charge - 72 year old Labour backbencher - Jeremy Corbyn..it's because of the rot that set in with Blair, all made possible by the damage George Soros and other speculators looking for fast bucks, did to the British economy in the early 90's!

And then there's all the shit Soros does in partnership and collaboration with the CIA...the coups and attempted coups in Ukraine, Russia and Eastern Europe. And his hand-on-the-wheel of liberal activism in America, where Center For American Progress, Open Society Institute and spider's web of Soros-affiliated foundations work to influence and manipulate just about every populist movement that starts up.

More Soros News

RT links this story posted from behind Bloomberg's paywall:
Soros says he wants to pay more taxes, but prefers Ireland where he paid less than $1,000 — RT Business News
https://www.rt.com/business/409738-s...thy-americans/
Quote:
George Soros has joined a petition to scrap tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. But the billionaire prefers Ireland, where his hedge fund paid just $962 in taxes in 2013, according to Bloomberg.

Four hundred wealthy Americans have appealed to the US Congress urging Republican lawmakers not to cut their taxes. They say the GOP shouldn’t cut taxes for the wealthiest when the US debt is at all-time high and inequality is rising.

The letter, signed, among others, by George Soros and Steven Rockefeller, says the proposal “would lead to deep cuts in critical services such as education, Medicare, and Medicaid, and would hamper our nation’s ability to restore investments in our people and communities.”


The signatories are among the highest earning five percent of Americans, who have $1.5 million in assets or who are making $250,000 or more a year.

The proposed cuts are part of President Donald Trump’s program aimed to spur growth and jobs in the country. They would add at least $1.5 trillion in tax cuts to the current national debt. This deficit “would leave us unable to meet our country’s current needs and restrict us in advancing any future investments,” the letter said.

One of the rich who signed the document is George Soros, who has always said wealthy people should pay more taxes. However, he prefers not to pay taxes in the United States, but in countries with more favorable tax laws.

In 2015 Bloomberg reported that Soros’ hedge fund paid $962 in tax in Ireland on $3,851 net income through 2013, while the remaining $7.2 billion operating income was allocated to investors.

A year later, Soros shut down the Irish company and set up another in the tax-friendly Caymans.

By the time the new company in the Caymans was created, Soros had reportedly funneled $13.3 billion in fees, which means he had dodged almost $7 billion in taxes if his business had been entirely located in the United States.
So, how do you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y again? And what is the difference between liberal billionaires and conservative billionaires? I'm betting that the rest of the 400 also have most of their wealth safely hidden from tax collectors they want to unleash on everyone else who doesn't have their level of tax sheltering capabilities.

What I find most interesting about this simple hit-piece on Soros is that if it's been posted on Bloomberg that means the heavy hitters are no longer taking the shots from the handful of liberal billionaires and are firing back at them...at least through the media they own.

Personally, I have no interest in taking sides in a war between billionaires(Koch Bros) who want to carbonize the atmosphere to maximize their profits vs 'liberal' billionaires like Soros, Buffet, Gates etc., who bleat on about how concerned they are for us unfortunate folks...while they continue merrily along increasing their net worths somehow and working closely...too closely with government institutions in their profit-generating ventures. There are no good guys among them...the only hopeful sign is that growing animosities among the oligarchs is a sign that they see no more value in staying in their lanes and not interfering with rival oligarchs. When the system is stagnant and not growing, the best profit potential is to destroy rivals.....maybe that's why they're all of a sudden taking Soros's rhetoric seriously now.
