George Soros arguably one of the wealthiest men the world has just thrown his hat into the Presidential race. Well sort of, while Mr. Soros may not actually be running, be sure is getting his hands wet. According to Business Insider the billionaire hedge fund manager and philanthropist has been actively following the campaigns of both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. It’s fair to say that George Soros is not
a Trump supporter and I doubt we will be seeing him caucusing for Ted Cruz in the near future.
George Soros actually went as far as to state that the Presidential campaigns of Mr. Trump and of Ted Cruz are actually assisting the Islamic State terror group commonly referred to as ISIS. The premise is that by ostracizing Muslims and blaming them for the actions of radical terrorist Trump and Cruz are fact really assisting the recruiting arm of these terror groups. Donald Trump has gone as far as to say that if he were President of the United States he would make a decree that would stop all Muslems for being allowed into the country. In one of the most divisive Republican primary elections in the history of this country both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz somehow have managed to reach the top of the popularity polls almost Republican. It is quite daunting see this archaic position gained so much strength amongst disillusioned middle-class America.
George Soros has also come out in a 45 minute interview on Forbes where he further explained that by “Abandoning the values and principles underlying open societies and giving in to an anti-Muslim impulse dictated by fear certainly is not the answer, though it may be difficult to resist the temptation,” and he also stated his belief that “I experienced this personally when I watched the last Republican presidential debate; I could stop myself only by remembering that it must be irrational to follow the wishes of your enemies.” Mr. Soros is 100% correct in his assertion as a matter of fact ISIS has gone to using video of Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric in its recruiting efforts. Other Republican contenders for President have added that the United States should also halt the acceptance of Syrian refugees as well. Mr. Trump warned that the refugees may pose a threat in the form of a”Trojan horse”. Mr. Soros correctly suggests that the statements during anti-western sentiment amongst Muslims living in both America and the European Union. This resentment fosters a breeding ground for potential terrorists and continues to reinforce the call for radicalization.
It is clear that George Soros is putting a lot of energy into the Presidential race and it is also clear that the passion the Mr. Soros was showing comes from a deeply seated conviction that all human beings should be treat justly. His answer to the”Trojan horse” theory can be seeing in the comprehensive plan that he drafted to try and help the European Union deal with the Middle Eastern migration crisis. In a six part plan Mr. Soros called for processing centers to be built in Turkey and other front-line countries. This of course is a logical solution and is much more morally correct as well as efficient. The use processing centers to help that out terrorist in two process honest asylum is another great example of how to deal with this crisis.
