How George Soros Destroyed The Democratic Party

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Daniel Greenfield via FrontPageMag.com,

It was the end of the big year with three zeroes. The first X-Men movie had broken box office records. You couldn’t set foot in a supermarket without listening to Brittney Spears caterwauling, “Oops, I Did It Again.” And Republicans and Democrats had total control of both chambers of legislatures in the same amount of states. That was the way it was back in the distant days of the year 2000.

In 2016, Republicans control both legislative chambers in 32 states. That’s up from 16 in 2000.

What happened to the big donkey? Among other things, the Democrats decided to sell their base and their soul to a very bad billionaire and they got a very bad deal for both.

It was 2004. The poncho was the hottest fashion trend, there were 5 million new cases of AIDS and a former Nazi collaborator had bought the Democrat Party using the spare change in his sofa cushions.

And gone to war against the will of the people. This was what he modestly called his own “Soros Doctrine”.

“It is the central focus of my life,” George Soros declared. It was “a matter of life and death.” He vowed that he would become poor if it meant defeating the President of the United States.

Instead of going to the poorhouse, he threw in at least $15 million, all the spare change in the billionaire’s sofa cushions, dedicated to beating President Bush.

In his best lisping James Bond villain accent, Soros strode into the National Press Club and declared that he had “an important message to deliver to the American Public before the election” that was contained in a pamphlet and a book that he waved in front of the camera. Despite his “I expect you to die, Mr. Bond” voice, the international villain’s delivery was underwhelming. He couldn’t have sold brownies to potheads at four in the morning. He couldn’t even sell Bush-bashing to a roomful of left-wing reporters.

But he could certainly fund those who would. And that’s exactly what he did.

Money poured into the fringe organizations of the left like MoveOn, which had moved on from a petition site to a PAC. In 2004, Soros was its biggest donor. He didn’t manage to bring down Bush, but he helped buy the Democratic Party as a toy for his yowling dorm room of left-wing activists to play with.

Soros hasn’t had a great track record at buying presidential elections. The official $25 million he poured into this one bought him his worst defeat since 2004. But his money did transform the Democrat Party.

And killed it.

Next year the Democracy Alliance was born. A muddy river of cash from Soros and his pals flowed into the organizations of the left. Soros had helped turn Howard Dean, a Vermont politician once as obscure as this cycle’s radical Vermont Socialist, into a contender and a national figure. Dean didn’t get the nomination, but he did get to remake the DNC. Podesta’s Center for American Progress swung the Democrats even further to the left. And it would be Podesta who helped bring Hillary down.

The Democrats became a radical left-wing organization and unviable as a national political party. The Party of Jefferson had become the Party of Soros. And only one of those was up on Mount Rushmore.

Obama’s wins concealed the scale and scope of the disaster. Then the party woke up after Obama to realize that it had lost its old bases in the South and the Rust Belt. The left had hollowed it out and transformed it into a party of coastal urban elites, angry college crybullies and minority coalitions.

Republicans control twice as many state legislative chambers as the Democrats. They boast 25 trifectas , controlling both legislative chambers and the governor’s mansion. Trifectas had gone from being something that wasn’t seen much outside of a few hard red states like Texas to covering much of the South, the Midwest and the West.

The Democrats have a solid lock on the West Coast and a narrow corridor of the Northeast, and little else. The vast majority of the country’s legislatures are in Republican hands. The Democrat Governor’s Association has a membership in the teens. In former strongholds like Arkansas, Dems are going extinct. The party has gone from holding national legislative majorities to becoming a marginal movement.

And the Democrats don’t intend to change course. The way is being cleared for Keith Ellison, the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus with an ugly racist past, to head the DNC. Pelosi will oversee the disaster in the House. And Obama will remain the party’s highest profile national figure.

There could hardly be a clearer signal that the left intends to retain its donkey herding rights. Soros and his ilk have paid for the reins. That is why Pelosi, with her access to donors, will retain her position.

The left had recreated the Democrat Party and marginalized it. Much of this disaster had been funded with Soros money. Like many a theatrical villain, the old monster had been undone by his own hubris. Had Soros aided the Democrats without trying to control them, he would have gained a seat at the table in a national party. Instead he spent a fortune destroying the very thing he was trying to control.

George Soros saw America in terms of its centers of economic and political power. He didn’t care about the vast stretches of small towns and villages, of the more modest cities that he might fly over in his jet but never visit, and the people who lived in them. Like so many globalists who believe that borders shouldn’t exist because the luxury hotels and airports they pass through are interchangeable, the parts of America that mattered to him were in the glittering left-wing bubble inhabited by his fellow elitists.

Trump’s victory, like Brexit, came because the left had left the white working class behind. Its vision of the future as glamorous multicultural city states was overturned in a single night. The idea that Soros had committed so much power and wealth to was of a struggle between populist nationalists and responsible internationalists. But, in a great irony, Bush was hardly the nationalist that Soros believed. Instead Soros spent a great deal of time and wealth to unintentionally elect a populist nationalist.

Leftists used Soros money to focus on their own identity politics obsessions leaving the Dems with little ability to interact with white working class voters. The Ivy and urban leftists who made up the core of the left had come to exist in a narrow world with little room for anything and anyone else. 

Soros turned over the Democrats to political fanatics least likely to be able to recognize their own errors. His protégés repeated the great self-destruction of the Soviet Union on a more limited scale

Soros fed a political polarization while assuming, wrongly, that the centers of power mattered, and their outskirts did not. He was proven wrong in both the United States of America and in the United Kingdom. He had made many gambles that paid off. But his biggest gamble took everything with it.

"I don’t believe in standing in the way of an avalanche," Soros complained of the Republican wave in 2010.

But he has been trying to do just that. And failing.

"There should be consequences for the outrageous statements and proposals that we've regularly heard from candidates Trump and Cruz," Soros threatened this time around. He predicted a Hillary landslide.

He was wrong.

As Soros plowed more money into the left, its escalating radicalism alienated more of the country. Each “avalanche” was a reaction to the abuses of his radicals.  It wasn't Trump or Cruz who suffered the consequences. It wasn't even his own leftists. Rather it was the conservative and eventually the moderate wings of the Democrat party who were swept away by his left-wing avalanches.

The left did not mourn the mass destruction of the moderates. Instead it celebrated the growing purity of the Democrats as a movement of the hard left. It did not notice or care that it was no longer a political force outside a limited number of cities. It anticipated that voters would have no choice but to choose it over the "extremist" Republicans.

It proved to be very, very wrong.

George Soros spent a fortune to turn a national party favorable to the left into an organization that has difficulty appealing to anyone not on the left. He wanted to control a country he did not understand. And, as the left so often does, he achieved his goals and in doing so destroyed them.

I wouldn't give Soros that much credit.

Sure, he helped, but face it, mainstream corporate media is now the Ministry of Truth

And both the Democrat and Republican elites have been working overtime in the last 16 years

to dismantle the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The Deplorables at least understand they have been betrayed by BOTH parties.

I'm guessing that even without the billionaire polarizing meddler Soros, the limousine liberal group, made up of the crooked Clintons, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Washerwoman-Schitz, Chuck 'the fuck' Schumer and the Obamas, was more than enough to sink a very divided, primary election-rigged Democrat Party

Viewed as such, yes.  But in reality they have always been about socialism and control.  That's exactly what the KKK attempted to do.  Control others and their actions.

If Hellish wants to get even with somebody for losing then let her do something right for a change and go after Soros/Schwarz.

It was just fine with her when Soros/Schwarz antagonized everyone else with Marxist social decay.

It never occured to her that he would drag her down, too.

Perhaps Trump will bring justice to Soros, either that or nature itself will take care of him one way or the other!

Trump wants to cut deals with the Ruskies.

The Ruskies already have a warrant out for Soros/Schwarz.

Trump could trade Soros/Schwarz to the Ruskies as a bargaining chip.

Win-win for us -- we get a deal and get rid of Soros.

Never to be seen or heard from again.

Please. He was 14 and a half when the Nazis surrendered in Budapest (where he lived).

Soros may be pernicious, but drop this "Nazi collaborator" bullshit.

fx's picture

The Dems a party of "radical leftists"?? Are you kidding me? they are a bunch of corrupt liars at every party level that has even a slight real influence on state or national policies, by and large. The same ist true for the republicans. Oh, and Soros is no leftist billionaire either. He is a globalist, elitist NWO world government crook who wants to enslave mankind for his own personal enrichment no matter what. His "open society" and "reflexivity" bullsh!t is just some empty talk and blabbering to fool and deceive people. He sold out his fellow jews to the Nazis back in the dark times of the 1930s/1940s; he virtually delivered them to the Nazio slaughterhouse and never ever regretted it. He is doing and always will do the same to everybody else. His only "principle" and "ideology" is "Soros first". he has more money than he can ever spend in his remaining life span, yet he still cannot grab enough $$. Leftist? Not!

He is a globalist, elitist NWO world government crook who wants to enslave mankind for his own personal enrichment no matter what.

So, in other words - a leftist.

Not a liberal, no. A LEFTIST.

From the beginning, the Marxist left has been about power and control, all costs, above all else.

Soros is a follower of Karl Popper.  Popper had both economic and philosophic ideas on how to organize society.  He coined the term "open society" which was adopted by Soros.

All of Popper's grandparents were Jewish, so automatically one must consider that Popper's ideas are suspect.

Here is a quote from Popper:

http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2016/01/karl-popper-de...

So, in the Middle Ages, the answer to the question “Who should rule?” became the principle: God is the ruler, and He rules through His legitimate human representatives. It was this principle of legitimacy which was first seriously challenged by the Reformation and then by the English revolution of 1648-49 which proclaimed the divine right of the people to rule. But in this revolution the divine right of the people was immediately used to establish the dictatorship of Oliver Cromwell.

______

Interesting thing about Cromwell, there is evidence he was "funded" by Sephardic stock market Capital out of Amsterdam.  Our friends had long designs on England and were intent on overturning their expulsion. (They were expelled from England because they were taking over the land through a usury mechanism i.e. pay off exponential debts with swaps for land.)  Remember, usury is sanctioned by Talmud as a weapon against Goyim.

Cromwell emphasized the Old Testament, and "Jews" were made out to be holy heros - to thus pave the way for return to England.  Sephardic Jews from Amsterdam even printed Bibles (at large expense) to give to English sheep herders so said herders could then read  old testament.  Echo's of this today in Scofield bible, a bible also funded by Jewry to then form Zionist Christianity.

Soros is a currency trader.  He takes his rents on exchange rate differences.  Through a complex mechanism known as the bear raid, he can short and manipulate currencies to go they way he wants.  Part of the game is to influence an economy politically to then insure his bets.  Ukraine is a good example:  foment chaos and exchange rate will move in proportion - and in the direction you want it to go.

So, for all the flowery words of our (((overlords))) you will always find sordid gain.   You almost always will find rent seeking and manipulations.  Often this is accompanied by false hypnotic economic thought, which is designed to snare the unwary.

I have found many errors in Popper's economic doctrine - probably somebody needs to write a book... probably will have to be me.  

Another thing about Soros is that he is Hungarian, yet it was Austrian hereditary kings along with their Jewish money men (taking usury) that undid the wonderful Hungarian system. 

Hungary had a constitutional kingdom that lasted almost 1000 years.  Twice Hungary was attacked by our (((friends))), externally by Austro empire, and then again by Bolsheviks in 1956.

It must suck to be Hungary and be near Pale of Settlement and Polish Jewery.  You will forever be under attack by rent seeking tribesmen.  No wonder Hungary was the first to put up a wall to keep Semites out.  YOU SHALL NOT PASS!

I have long been against exchange rate manipulations.  Soros would not be running his rent seeking game if the world used a Bancor system for external trades (not money).

How retarded are we that we allow floating exchange rates against  "bank credit" that masquerades as national fiat?

Only somebody who is immoral and desirous of sordid gain, would defend the exchange rate system, and its parasitic bear raids.

Soros is just another Parasite, who now has a God complex.

Soros lost roughly 2.5-3 Billion dollars trying to loot Russia in the 90's.

He's just butt hurt.

How else can you condemn Orthodox Russia by Western Cultural Standards but shake hands with House of Saud?

This election has woken up a lot of people on both sides that what they're watching is a clown car tug of war in a three ring circus in which the audience pays for the show no matter which car wins.

The Trump vote was those choosing the ringleader instead of the clowns and  leaving the tent.

In this case the jews who control the dems could not match the jews who control the repubs..  It was an entertaining contest for sure.  But make no mistake the jews won and now they (both side) will take profits with the jews who control the repubs maybe getting better percentages or more of the cream.  And from the look of it they plan to make significant moves over the next 4 yrs to even further destroy what it is to be a citizen of the US.

Notice:

Trumps married off his two oldest sons to jew women.  Trump married his trany daughter to a jew.  Trump is in the process to marry off his youngest daughter to yet another jew.  Trump appointed a bloodline Rothschilds jew to head treasury. And on and on.  Trumps trany daughter is very good friends with Chelsea Clinton (who the was also married off to a jew).

lots of junks, and perhaps a tad overstated - but you are basically right, and Greenfields Zionist Jewish take on Soros and Trump is necessarily understood as Blue Jew kvetching.

The deal Trump made with Adelson and the Likudnik Jews is regime change Iran and help Israel destroy Hezbollah which resists Israeli hegemony in Lebanon.

wherever you look, Jews are WILDLY over-represented, far beyond merit.

Holy Shit!

You mean the all powerful Jews who control the entire globe and everything in it need help to get rid of a few ragheads next door?

Wow, they must be slipping badly. They better cinch up their yarmukes and get busy.

Maybe Sheldon could comp Hezbollah for a weekend in Vegas and Bibi could move in while their gone.

~"I wouldn't give Soros that much credit."~

Actually, I find this post to be a very accurate summation of what the 2016 election turned out to be. It is true that it was not Soros alone who created the evil that was done, but he was the money bags behind it. The corrupt avarice of the Clintons and the Chicago Mafia were all that was needed to complete the complete destruction. What is disturbing is how incapable those whose guilt is writ in this fiasco are of coming to terms with their very own failures. All you see them do is try to blame others for their iniquities. I can think of no finer display of corrupt pettiness than how they have acted since the election. And to think they almost ended up running this country. It does appear as if the Fortunes shine upon us. Time will tell.

Always the way:  They use each other with abandon, then fall upon each other when they lose.

Both parties have been betrayed by the jews who run them; Soros funds the Democratic party, he does not run it. Both parties abandoned the people and the truth along time ago. jews hate truth.

In Ze No's picture

Agree with you 100%.  The parties stand for nothing anymore.  The press has proven to be about gov talking point pr/ propaganda and truth is cast off as inconvenient or worse yet treasoness.

I didn't think I'd live to see the day when our rights were so blatantly dismantled and half or more of my FB friends would be cheering it on.  Storm's a-coming and only a few of us Cassandras are awake enough to see it.

Since it came from Soros, Its "good" influence. Its only bad when such things hurt democrats. Kinda like all the "russian hacking" nonsense. the left bitches and moans about foreign interference in our election, but their entire national strategy relies upon same. They import millions of foreigners who overwhelmingly vote democrat. They wouldn't stand a chance in a national election without a shitload of non americans voting. How exactly that isn't defined as 'foreign interference in our elections' is beyond me.

 

Also funny how the democrat party has allowed itself to become the big money, coroporate party. They rely on billionaire money to operate. All that money spend and they still couldn't get killery her crown. I never thought Id say this, but it looks like we all owe old georgie a big thank you for what he did. I doubt the germans would feel the same, but him destroying the left trying to remake it in his imagine did us a big favor this time around.

New World Chaos's picture

Also have to thank Soros for Black Lives Matter.  When the revolution comes, there will be a bunch of cops on our side, and most of the angry nutbags who kill random cops will be black, which means there will be even more cops on our side.

Within a few years maybe we will thank Soros for a fascist Europe and the giant enema which will follow.  And the Farce will come full circle for this devil who got his start betraying his own people to the Nazis so he could steal their shit.

"Zionists Sacrificed Jews to the Holocaust

The word "Holocaust" is a Biblical term for "burnt sacrifice." 
Why refer to genocide as "a sacrifice"? - See more at: https://www.henrymakow.com/2013/11/Zionists-Sacrificed-Jews-in-Holocaust...

"Excerpts from Perfidy are printed below. We begin with Adolf Eichmann's testimonial to Kastner's activities, which Hecht quoted from "Eichmann's Confessions" published in the November 28 and December 5, 1960 editions of LIFE magazine.

In Hungary my basic orders were to ship all the Jews out of Hungary in as short a time as possible. . . . In obedience to Himmler's directive, I now concentrated on negotiations with the Jewish political officials in Budapest . . . among them Dr. Rudolf Kastner, authorized representative of the Zionist Movement. This Dr. Kastner was a young man about my age, an ice-cold lawyer and a fanatical Zionist. He agreed to help keep the Jews from resisting deportation -- and even keep order in the collection camps -- if I would close my eyes and let a few hundred or a few thousand young Jews emigrate illegally to Palestine.

It was a good bargain. For keeping order in the camps, the price . . . was not too high for me ....We trusted each other perfectly. When he was with me, Kastner smoked cigarets as though he were in a coffeehouse. While we talked he would smoke one aromatic cigaret after another, taking them from a silver case and lighting them with a silver lighter. With his great polish and reserve he would have made an ideal Gestapo officer himself.Dr. Kastner's main concern was to make it possible for a select group of Hungarian Jews to emigrate to Israel. . . .

As a matter of fact, there was a very strong similarity between our attitudes in the S.S. and the viewpoint of these immensely idealistic Zionist leaders . . . . I believe that Kastner would have sacrificed a thousand or a hundred thousand of his blood to achieve his political goal. . . . "You can have the others," he would say, "but let me have this group here." And because Kastner rendered us a great service by helping to keep the deportation camps peaceful, I would let his group escape. After all, I was not concerned with small groups of a thousand or so Jews. . . . That was the "gentleman's agreement" I had with the Jews.

To paraphrase Herzyl:

The branches may be cut off (the Jewish Tree), as long as the trunk remains.

 

In other words, Zionism had a strategy of killing Jewery to then get Palestein.  Zion in turn was/is funded by International banking capital.  (Hence George Soros pushing international Open Societies.)

I have long come to ZH to do battle with libertarian-tards and free market zelots.  When confronted with the reality that this same orthodoxy was used by Zion to kill their own people, one must go through a rethink.

Zionist Christians have also been duped.

All of these manipulations by Zion at their root are Kabala.  They HAVE TO HAVE THE TEMPLE REBUILT, to then have a place to house their female Messiah.

This Zionist psychopathy is FUNDED by the private usury taking banking system.  

Take the red pill.

A Soros company makes voting machines that have NO physical audit trail.  Intersetingly enough, the democratic party primaries shows some interesting results.  In those states that use machines with a physical audit trail the exit polls mirrored the actual voting results.  In those states that use Soros machines the results did not miorror the exit polls.
