Yes, you read that correctly. Though it may be considered bad form, and some may think it a personal attack, I do not consider this either. Instead, I see this as an opportunity to illustrate how people we may otherwise consider to be decent folk are supporting those who have openly declared that they want to destroy this nation as it was founded. The example comes in the form of a comment by RNL contributor, Melfamy:
Are you forgetting that Soros has been instrumental in bringing several Communist regimes? He grew tired of the BS on the right, and started funding groups that would speak back to the idiocy and lies.
Soros is a great American, and that video is spot on! If you paid attention, B, you would see how she is saying many of the same things that Jesus said.
To call Soros a “great American” is to call Stalin, or Lenin, or Marx a “great American.” Let me share a little George Soros with you to make my point:
Soros has said:
“If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.”
Soros has also said:
“My goal is to become the conscience of the world.”
Which should leave us wondering how someone who thinks of himself as a messiah and who wants to be the conscience of the world could then say?
“Pure reason and a moral code based on the value of the individual are inventions of Western culture; they have little resonance in other cultures….The Western intellectual tradition ought not to be imposed indiscriminately on the rest of the world in the name of universal values.”
On bringing down other nations and governments:
“When you try to, let’s see, improve society you affect different people and different interests differently and they are not actually commensurate. So you very often have all kinds of unintended adverse consequences. So I had to experiment. And it was a learning process. The first part was this subversive activity, disrupting repressive regimes. That was a lot of fun and that’s actually what got me hooked on this whole enterprise. Seeing what worked in one country, trying it in the other country. It was kind of what developed a matrix in fact that we had, national foundations, and then we had certain specialized activities.”
On his goal of an open society with one-world government
“I became concerned with the problems of globalization. They have global markets, but you have politics based on the sovereignty states. So how do you deal with that issue. And then I came to the realization that open society is in danger by our current leadership in this country. And that is when we focused my attention on the United States.”
On what he sees as the primary obstacle to his goal of an open society and one-world government:
“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States…”
So, Melfamy says that a man who wants to get the U.S. out of the way so he can help build a stable and just world is a “great American.” Well, he may be to Melfamy, but then, that tells us a lot about Melfamy’s allegiance to America as it was founded, doesn’t it? And he is not alone…
There is a message here for all of us to learn. The question now is, are you willing to face the ugly truth I’ve just shown you so that you can learn the lessons?
[Also, to Melfamy’s assertion that the narrator of “The Story of Stuff” is espousing the Gospel of Christ: this is an utterance that betrays a total lack of understanding of Christ’s message. Christ taught that we — each of us as individuals — are responsible for caring for each other. He never — NOT ONCE — taught that it is or even should be left to govt. to do that. So Melfamy is wrong here, as well.]
