Breaking down Trump's 'Soros' attack on the Manhattan DAhttps://www.cnn.com/2023/03/31/politics/trump-soros-bragg-color-of-change/index.html
In the wake of a Manhattan grand jurys historic decision to indict Donald Trump, the former president and some other prominent Republicans, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have invoked liberal billionaire George Soros in their attacks on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Trump claimed in a statement that Bragg was hand-picked and funded by George Soros.
Here are the facts.
Soros, a longtime supporter of Democratic campaigns, various liberal causes and prosecutors who favor criminal justice reform, has been a frequent target of antisemitic conspiracy theories painting the Jewish philanthropist as a puppetmaster behind various US and international events. Soros did not make any direct contributions to Braggs 2021 election campaign, and a Soros spokesperson, Michael Vachon, told CNN last week that the two men have never once communicated in any way.
Rather, Soross connection to Bragg is indirect: he has been a major donor to a liberal political action committee that supported Braggs candidacy. A spokesperson for the PAC denounced the Soros-related attacks on Bragg in an interview with CNN last week, calling them antisemitic, anti-Black and an overstatement of both Soross role in the PACs decision-making and the PACs role in Braggs election victory.
Donations to a PAC that supported Bragg
Bragg is a graduate of Harvard Law School, a former federal prosecutor and a former chief deputy attorney general for New York state. He won a competitive Democratic primary for Manhattan district attorney in 2021, against an opponent who had millions more to spend, and then trounced a Republican in the general election.
'Woke' means Black people as does 'welfare', 'balance the budget' and plenty more.
the media is glossing over the often repeated references to George Soros, the MAGA anti-semite's go-to brand for Jewish hatred..George Soros is not an adjective...he is a generous 92 year old Holocaust survivor..a man who has experienced the worst kind of hate.. that the media is anesthetized to the extreme right's racist and ethic tropes is nauseating...
This kind of irresponsible, hateful rhetoric is going to lead to violence against American Jews.
How any Jewish Americans can vote for Republicans at this point is beyond me. You have to be willfully blind to reality.
I don't think I've ever seen a pic of him. I wouldn't recognize him if he sat next to me on a bus.
I heard he's 92 y/o. What kind of shape is he in? Is he healthy?
Will some of his base go "Jan 6th" on a few Jewish business? Homes? Synagogues? Individuals? I am hoping it won't happen, but I don't have much faith.
Following the news that former President Donald Trump was indicted Thursday by the Manhattan grand jury overseeing the Stormy Daniels hush money case, Fox News quickly blamed a familiar foe: George Soros.
In less than 24 hours since news of the indictment broke, Soros has been mentioned at least 41 times on the network.
