No, he promotes left wing socialist rhetoric for his own personal gain.

As I said earlier socialism is an ideology not a person.

I very much doubt anyone funding these movements truly believes anything they say.

This is chess not checkers.



So ... looking up the page at your posts, Soros is a socialist and now he isn't. Since I'm betting he is the linch-pin of most of your "theories" ... figure out what you actually believe in that regard and let me know.

What claims?

That Soros is an influential socialist?

That the radical left have infiltrated various social movements under the guise of equality?

That the majority or looters are opportunistic criminals?





Soros is an influential socialist.

No, he's not a socialist, he just plays one on right-wing nutblogs.

Again I never said he was a socialist. He’s a globalist who would see America descend into a liberal wasteland, nationalism is his enemy and funding socialist ventures is just one of the tactics just like the open society nonsense he peddles.

I never called him a socialist. Your reading comprehension is an insurmountable obstacle to a constructive conversation, also I don’t like your attitude so I’m going to leave it here.

Another minion of orthodoxy who can’t think for himself criticising people for daring to challenge the generally accepted views propagated by the machine.

He influences socialism, that doesn’t mean he is one.

That's not what you said; see your above quote.

Wouldn't want to put words in your mouth.

Nope still don’t see it.

I do see a question.

I should have phrased it an influencer of socialism rather than an influential socialist. He certainly funds groups aligned with socialism, I agree tho, he most likely is playing them like a fiddle.

The left is more easily manipulated so it’s a good tool in destroying the right.

Just before you crush it into oblivion with your one world government which doesn’t take political sides as it’s the only option.

Ah ... touche. I do see the question marks.

I also see that stated your beliefs in the form of questions. But no matter. You misspoke, Soros is not a socialist.

Agreed, but he does support them with funding.

No, but his death was certainly used as the spark.

I didn’t tear him down, I stated facts! Why is he being portrayed as an upstanding citizen?

He was high on drugs with a criminal record including armed robbery. Do you deny these facts?

We will have to agree to disagree on your final point, frustration doesn’t lead to riots and looting.







Doesn't matter the guy was not a saint..not 1 iota

You can't let the police do this..to anyone, they are not the punishers, the courts are.

A bit of both, but out of control cop mostly. The racism is just part of the justice system. IMHO.



Why paint it as racism? The system is flawed towards everyone... In many of these cities where we are seeing the worst cases they have been under democratic rule for over 50 years, many in power are minorities, many of the cops are minorities, hell the police chiefs/mayors are minorities...

Where is the systemic racism there, why have they not fixed it in many many decades of having control to do so.

Wide brushing systemic racism as the reason just covers the real issues as to why and you will never fix it because the reason you are using is not the reason. How do you fix racism when it is not the systemic problem in the first place? And we already know this since it has been dubbed a racism problem all these decades and nothing has changes even when those in power have changed to minorities.

I mostly put it on out of control police, the racism part is just there, the justice system is racist, stats prove it, but, I agree with you, it's mostly cops gone wild. From the get go, I felt it, authoritarian, more than an individual racist act by the cop.

It matters when the media lie and project the image of a saint who died as a martyr.

Not a convicted armed robber high on drugs.

Did he deserve to die? No.

Is it an excuse or justification for current events. No.

Skin colour is not a factor in our legal system. Unfortunately racism exists however it is not systematic or institutional. The protests are pointless, equal rights already exist for all.

Wow ... how many times did you contradict yourself? One two three ... three contradictions and four absolute denials of reality.

Well done.

Explain?

Laws are applied equally to everyone. Racism exists in certain individuals but is not systematic or institutional. Equal rights already exists which render the protests pointless, they can have no effect on laws or policy as they have no legislation which even mentions skin colour.

None of this is contradictory, except in your shallow little head.

Well, in my shallow little head that's a big steaming pile of nonsense.

Every single thing you said is contradicted by reality.

Best.

Sure, post me a single law which differentiates dependant on skin colour or an example backed by statistics which infers institutional or systematic racism.

Actually with things such as adversity scoring in SAT testing you could argue preferential treatment for black children.

You can’t just call my opinions nonsense without a single shred of evidence or source? At least try making a valid counter argument.

I say this with all seriousness. You and I are living in completely different worlds.

There's no counter argument because each of your statements is so far removed from reality that it is either the result of deceit or delusion, and possibly both.

Laws which differentiate based on race: The Naturalization Act of 1790. Slavery was encoded in the US Constitution. Civil War, Emancipation Proclamation, The Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments. Jim Crow laws differentiated specifically by race for about a hundred years after that. The National Origins Formula in 1929 regarding immigration specifies ethnicity and race.

Race has been encoded in legal precedent by any number of SCOTUS decisions. Affirmative Action. Etc.

Off the top of my head.

Any more is simply of no interest to me. Thank you for the chat.

Yes, you’re living in the past clearly which as far as I can tell is part of reality but unchangeable.

Laws which still apply today would be lovely. You know ones which effect our current reality which we share.

Quoting 100 year old laws to justify the current social unrest stinks of desperation.

Which current laws would you like to see changed as a result of your protests?

As far as I can tell not a single law is prejudice against race or religion. Not in the western world anyway.
