Billionaire political activist George Soros complained to The Washington Post this weekend that people across the globe are now turning their backs on his global campaign to force them into a Leftist utopia.
“Everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong,” he told WaPo, according to the Daily Caller. His plan to control countries, promote “open borders”-style immigration, and saddle Western countries with dramatic environmental restrictions has been met with a resounding chorus of boos.
Soros seems to believe that the rise of anti-establishment leaders like President Donald Trump and far-right politicians in Europe isn’t the result of widespread dissatisfaction with the results of lenient immigration policies or concerns for western civilization, but, instead, the result of Soros simply being ahead of his time, and far too forward-thinking for the rest of us rubes.
“Apparently, I was living in my own bubble,” he said.
Soros’ new fear, he told The Washington Post, is that Donald Trump is “willing to destroy the world” — something Soros himself has tried for decades to do, pumping millions into progressive NGOs and backing far-left candidates in Europe.
In 2017, Soros ramped up spending in the United States, giving millions to anti-Trump “resistance” groups, many of whom have either fizzled out or failed to accomplish objectives. The waste of money must be eating at him.
