Earlier this year, as we reported, Mr. Soros explained that in his view Facebook and Google were “menace(s)” and that their “days (were) numbered.” We also reported in 2017 on the meeting Soros and his media partner David Brock had in the wake of Trump’s win where they outlined to big time donors how it was that they would “resist” the Trump presidency.
Mr. Soros drapes himself in “democracy”. His agenda however seems to be to perpetuate a “Left” tinged crony capitalism. The European Union, an institution that many people would like to see rival the US, and that is mind bogglingly crony, is Mr. Soros’s baby. It is no surprise then that he would be so concerned with Trump who holds Europe to a large degree in contempt. Soros represents the old assertion of continental Europe on the world stage. Trump represents a challenge to that old order. Old world versus new world.
We encourage our readers to review the information and links within the attached article. We ask our readers to decide for themselves whether it appears the current censorship efforts are influenced by Mr. Soros, Mr. Brock, and their information ministry (long Obama’s de facto ministry of information) Media Matters.
And by the way the Soros organization wanted very much to own the concept of “fake news”. It was Media Matters allies who originally introduced the concept as a way to tar those news outlets with whom they disagreed. Then Trump flipped the term and stuck it to some of Soros’s fellow travelers.
Much of this battle has been waged in the shadows. With the recent heavy handed censorship efforts it has however spilled into the light.
More light is good.
One last note. It is very possible that Soros and Brock actually think they are the good guys.
The memo spells out a four-year agenda that deployed Media Matters along with American Bridge, Shareblue and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to attack Trump and Republicans.
The strategies are impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat “fake news.”
