In response to rising nationalism, Soros doubles down on his crusade for globalism.
When George Soros doubles down on his fight against national sovereignty, we should recognize his declaration as a promise of funding to those who will side with him. Like the United States, all these nations have vast unelected bureaucracies. Soros is promising to fund these “deep states,” as they resist the emerging will of the voters.
Breitbart London reports, “Soros Pledges Renewed Fight Against ‘Dominant Ideology’ of Nationalism, Says EU ‘on Verge of Breakdown.’”
The progressive billionaire speculator George Soros has said he will ‘fight back’ against the “dominant ideology” of nationalism, whilst admitting that favored globalist project the European Union is “on the verge of a breakdown”.
Wistfully writing that Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) once ‘epitomized the optimism about the spread of Western-style democracy’ after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Financial Times described the scrutiny the global progressive body is experiencing amidst a wave of patriotism and populism and the ‘wilting’ attraction of the leftist agenda.
Soros, alluding to the collapse of the USSR, told the left-liberal newspaper: “It’s déjà vu all over again with one big change — the dominant ideology in the world now is nationalism… It’s the EU that’s the institution that’s on the verge of a breakdown.
“And Russia is now the resurgent power, based on nationalism,” Soros said.
The open borders financier blames Russian hackers for attacks against him in 2016, and the country’s government blacklisted the OSF in 2015 for allegedly “endangering Russia’s constitutional system and national security”.
