Financial Times Names George Soros ‘Person Of The Year’

The “man who broke the bank of England” and who has no respect for the sovereignty of nations that reject unfettered immigration and the wholesale slaughter of children through abortion has been named “Person of the Year” by the Financial Times.

According to Newsweek, the London-based publication bestowed the honorary title upon George Soros for being a “standard-bearer for liberal democracy” in opposition to President Trump and the wave of populism sweeping across Europe.

“He is the standard-bearer of liberal democracy and open society,” wrote Roula Khalaf in the profile. “These are the ideas which triumphed in the Cold War. Today, they are under siege from all sides, from Vladimir Putin’s Russia to Donald Trump’s America.”

The glowing portrait of George Soros went on to say he has used his wealth to battle racism and intolerance, even though he is an avowed supporter of Planned Parenthood which was founded by a white supremacist.

“For more than three decades, Mr. Soros has used philanthropy to battle against authoritarianism, racism and intolerance,” the profile stated. “Through his long commitment to openness, media freedom and human rights, he has attracted the wrath of authoritarian regimes and, increasingly, the national populists who continue to gain ground, particularly in Europe.”

Later, the Financial Times hits at the many conspiracy theories that surround George Soros, dismissing them as an anti-Semitic “backlash designed to delegitimize him.”

“From his native Hungary to his adopted America, the forces of nationalism and populism are battering the liberal democratic order he has tirelessly supported,” says the publication. “The man once described as the only individual with a foreign policy must contend with the rise of strongmen across the globe — and a vicious backlash designed to delegitimise him.”

“There are so many anti-Semitic conspiracy theories targeting Mr Soros that it is difficult to keep count. Hardly a day goes by without a statement, a tweet or an image depicting him as a master manipulator of global politics.”

Soros paints himself as the victim of these campaigns, whining that it “hurts” him tremendously.

“I’m blamed for everything, including being the anti-Christ,” Soros told the publication. “I wish I didn’t have so many enemies, but I take it as an indication that I must be doing something right. I have been painted as the devil. The fact that extremists are motivated by false conspiracy theories about me to kill hurts me tremendously.”

Soros can whine all he wishes, but the man has increasingly become unwelcome in places like Britain (where he bet against the pound in 1992) and in his native home of Hungary, where Prime Minister Vikto Orbán has made it his personal mission to expel Soros from the country. “The Soros network has an extensive sphere of influence within the European Parliament and other EU bodies,” Orban said in October of last year. “Its aim is to build a Europe of mixed population and to condemn the Hungarian government for opposing their view on migration.”

At the time, Hungary implemented the “Stop Soros” bill with the express intention of empowering the interior minister to ban non-governmental organizations (NGOs). After the bill was passed in May of this year, several aid groups founded by George Soros were forced out of the country, including the Open Society Foundation, which moved all local staff to Berlin.

Soros has spent multi-millions to promote left-wing causes in foreign countries he has little to nothing to do with. This year, he employed every celebrity he can fit into his pocket in the effort to repeal Ireland’s 8th Amendment outlawing abortion. In May, the once-Catholic country overwhelmingly voted in favor of legalized abortion with 68% of the vote.
