2. The attacks on George Soros are an anti-semitic trope from 1920s Germany. Seriously.

The 1920s in Germany: Caught between massive reparations for the Entente-countries after WWI and a worldwide economic crisis, the german economy was in free-fall.

Who was to blame? We need someone to blame!

Well, let's blame the banks. But who controls the banks? The Jews!!! Let's blame the Jews!!!

Exactly the same is happening right now. The Alt-Right is anti-capitalist on the surface, but behind this is the same old trope: The banks are evil and the Jews control the banks, therefore the Jews are to blame for everything.

About a year ago the Alt-right tried to join forces with other anti-capitalist forces, but these other groups quickly refused any further cooperation when they quickly realized that the Alt-Right's anti-capitalism is just a pretext for bashing Jews.

If you don't believe me, go the comment-section of a random article on the Russia Today website. Just any random article. Odds are 50:50 that you will run into an anti-semitic rant about how (((they))) control Trump and Clinton and how the CIA and the Zionists are to blame for everything.
