I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that members of a religion that believes in a real, literal devil should take great delight in inventing boogeymen on whom they can blame everything, but the far right’s obsession with George Soros has reached downright pathological levels (which have now led at least one dangerous person to leave a bomb in his mailbox, much to the delight of Fox News viewers).
And the conspiracy theories have started to merge. Wingnut Dave Janda is now claiming that murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was on Soros’ payroll.
“What my sources tell me is the reason why he was in Turkey is because he was doing some deals with the deep state,” Janda said. “You see, Khashoggi was very tied in with the Muslim Brotherhood—a tentacle of the deep state—but he was also tied with who? I know, George Soros. In fact, my sources tell me that Khashoggi was on the payroll of Soros to do several things: one, to write disparaging articles and comments and propaganda against the current Saudi regime that has not been playing so nice with the deep state.”
Janda claimed that the deep state is now trying to whip up outrage over Khashoggi’s death in order to force President Trump to impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia, which will cause the Saudis to retaliate by cutting off the oil supply, which will in turn crash the global economy, for which Trump will be blamed.
“It boils down to Khashoggi died,” Janda said. “The goal of the deep state was to take that event and blow it up to such a fever pitch that Trump would be pushed into doing something, such as the sanctions, which would lead to lead to the implosion of the world economy, which is exactly what the globalists want.”
The utterly deranged Rick Wiles declares Soros to be an enemy of the state who should be arrested and charged with treason, and all his assets seized.
After asserting that hundreds of ISIS terrorists are likely “embedded in this mob,” Wiles insisted that Soros “masterminded” the caravan and must be arrested as an “enemy of the state” and have his wealth seized.
“I don’t know why George Soros has not been named as an enemy of the state,” Wiles said. “His wealth should be seized. He should be arrested and imprisoned. He is working to collapse nations. He is a dangerous … he is a financial political terrorist.”
“He’s a dangerous man and he should be arrested, his wealth should be seized,” Wiles reiterated.
And I think people like you are dangerous, Rick. Maybe we should arrest you and seize your collection of velvet Elvis paintings and copies of the King James Bible, along with the $18 in your checking account. Hey, why are you still here? You said you were leaving America after Obama was reelected in 2012 because you didn’t want to be in the line of fire when God destroyed America. That never happened, of course, just like nothing you’ve ever predicted has happened. And yet you still find people stupid enough to listen to you and believe you. There is clearly no limit to human gullibility.
