One story suggests basically that George Soros, a Hungarian Jew from the Nazi, World War II era, had a father who helped the Nazis. Perhaps this father was compelled to work against his own people. The work allegedly was to steal items from other Jews while helping the Nazis round them up and deport, imprison and kill them. Many of us have heard the stories of the Jews being forced to take off all clothes and personal items before stepping into the gassing chambers. Many of them also had their houses and businesses, with all of their possessions there, taken from them. Some people very strongly believe that his Open Society Foundations has given high ticket donations to Black Lives Matter and other minority/LGBT powered movements in their activities against the United States.Some people swear he is really helping to fund Black Lives Matter and its ilk. Others say he is innocent of such activities.If there is something to the conspiracy story, here is one way it might be playing out: Jews who were either forced or otherwise voluntarily cooperated with the Nazis for their own protection or gain had later gotten hold of some of the Jewish items after the war. Again, these items were stolen from the Jewish people doomed to the Holocaust, and could be anything from high cost art work and jewelry to other assets. If true, these Jews, including George Soros, secretly retained the items which added up to millions of dollars in value. They then invested them in other things and together became billionaires. Whether George Soros was the main instigator and leader or not , perhaps his system passed on to his children or other close family members or friends who have either followed his legacy or taken it to even more sinister heights. Perhaps someone else really controls Open Society Foundations. Perhaps he lost control a long time ago, or has been used as a front. Whatever the case might be, perhaps these Jews are a side-branch of Jewishness that has made it their goal to punish certain people, or even the world, for the Holocaust. Perhaps much of the phenomena we are experiencing comes from a secret network of Jews hiding from the world. It’s probably a good idea to watch for “others” among the Open Society Foundations for any such conspiracies, because George Soros is very old. Look for a male who is very high energy and ruthless, capable of holding a grudge for decades, and part of a lineage of Holocaust revenge types. They might have had members of their families or entire towns with family members in the Holocaust. If there is a Hungary connection that includes but goes beyond Soros, look into which towns might have held their family members lost in that manner. Get clear on what all of his family members do, what special education or qualifications they might have to carry out a conspiracy of this magnitude. It is hard to connect Islamic Jew Haters with Jews who work with radical Islam among Black Lives Matter. It is hard to recognize the fair-skinned Jew surrounded by South Africans singing songs about destroying whites, it’s hard to figure why Bernie Sanders has helped support the minority power movement, etc, etc…but there are strong indications that despite these apparent contradictions, Jews have indeed worked with the minority power movement. But remember, Jews can and often do come in all shapes, sizes and colors, and some might be the darker skinned, curlier haired types. In addition, there is that old Communist/Socialist aspect that was there even before World War II. The leftists of this ilk have been working with the Black Panthers and others for many years now, despite all the apparent contradictions. In addition, Nazis had been working with Islamic groups durin the war, and many Muslims shared a hatred of Jews with the Nazis. So you see, all of these apparent contradictions, yet people working together along certain strands of interconnectivity.We are not to confuse certain Islamic hatred of Jews as the main reason for hating Jews. Their hatred and this possible conspiracy of Jews could be two different things. This is because the Islamic groups vocalizing hatred of Jews at every turn are turning their wrath on all Jews, not just a minor conspiratorial group. If we were dealing with the real thing, the Muslims would differentiate between Jews. Instead, we seem to get conspiracy stories of various types about Jews, but nothing that seems to take us to something real that we get our hands on. The conspiracy stories seem to take us down false corridors while distracting us from what really could be going on.If the above conspiracy idea has any validity, it might explain why Soros’ group got hold of so much money. Maybe he made a vow to use the fruits of all the Holocaust victims through revenge in their name. Maybe he was angry the Nazis put his father in that position of turning on his own Jewish people that this too is a reason for revenge.Whatever the case might be, it is best to review the many stories on Soros and keep your mind open to various possibilities.Also on BLM/Some Groups of Concern:Three groups with money to consider are the Saudis, the Iranians and China. The Saudis have been known to fund anything they believe will support their power. The Iranians have fed power movements in various countries over the years. Yet others like the Russians and French have often been caught feeding our enemies. Various types of people have voiced concerns that George Soros is also involved in such staged events. Soros is said to have donated large sums to the ACLU and their allies; just exactly how all that works together or whether yet other agents in the Soros forum are involved would require meticulous investigations and honest, objective reporting - many stories on the Internet about Soros seem fishy.Soros Not a Conspiracy View:Reuters2020/09 [Note from PF: Reuters article says its not true]https //www reuters com/article/uk-factcheck-false-george-soros-claims/fact-checkfalseclaims-about-george-soros-idUSKBN23P2XJExcerpt: Social media users have been sharing an image online that makes several disparaging and false claims about George Soros. Some of these claims include Soros being a former Nazi, Soros “swearing to destroy the U.S.A.”, Soros owning ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, and Soros paying for protesters. Examples can be seen here and here. George Soros is a billionaire philanthropist and founder of Open Society Foundations. He has been the target of multiple conspiracy theories and misinformation on social media (here). Previous Reuters fact checks debunking claims about Soros can be found here and here. Open Society Foundations told Reuters via email that the claims made toward Soros in these posts are “false” and “do a disservice to the very bedrock of our democracy, as enshrined in the First Amendment.” SOROS IS NOT A FORMER NAZI: Reuters debunked a false claim that a photograph shows a young Soros in a Nazi uniform (here). During the time Nazis were active, Soros would not have met the age requirements to be in the Schutzstaffel. Soros and his family were Hungarian Jews who lived in Budapest during the war, disguising their identities for safety. In 1947 at the age of 17, Soros moved to London to attend university (more here). By the time Soros was 17, the fall of Nazi Germany had already happened. Soros could not possibly have been involved in the Nazi party which was active between 1920-1945. He is also a Hungarian Jew, further disproving this theory. In a 1998 60 Minutes interview (youtu.be/AiqHiQYuoOs) Soros says his father forged his family’s identity to protect them. Soros, as a teenager, was placed under custody of a government official with the premise of being his godson. During this time, Soros witnessed (but did not actively participate in) the confiscation of Jewish property (here). In the interview, Soros says he doesn’t feel guilt looking back at these events, mentioning that he was a child at the time and that he was a “spectator” to something that would have happened regardless of his presence. SOROS NEVER SWORE TO “DESTROY THE USA” Reuters found no evidence of Soros ever saying this. Other fact checkers have also debunked this specific “quote” (here, here). An older version of the quote attributes it to a Newsweek interview but there is no evidence Soros said this in their archive. One article quotes Steve Bannon comparing politics to war, saying, “They fight, look at [George] Soros and these other NGOs...they destroy you.” The article also states that, according to Bannon, Soros threatened to “destroy him personally.” (here). SOROS DOES NOT “OWN” ANTIFA AND BLACK LIVES MATTER George Soros does not “own” ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter. A spokesperson for Open Society Foundations told Reuters via email: “We proudly support organizations that promote civic engagement and champion the right of all Americans to petition their government for redress of grievances. Those protesting the death of Mr. Floyd and police brutality across the nation do so out of a deep and abiding concern for country; they don’t do so for pay from these foundations or any other, as some cynics claim.”https //www reuters com/article/uk-factcheck-false-george-soros-claims/fact-checkfalseclaims-about-george-soros-idUSKBN23P2XJGeorge Soros Conspiracy ViewBW Central dot org2018/06 The shared agenda of George Soros and Barack Obamahttps://bwcentral.org/2018/06/the-shared-agendas-of-george-soros-and-barack-obama/Seen also on Notes 10/15/2020VOA News2020/09/16 Anarchist Groups Tied to Riots in 4 US Cities By Masood Farivarhttps //www voanews com/extremism-watch/anarchist-groups-tied-riots-4-us-citiesExcerpt “Many of the features of anarcho-socialist extremism seem to parallel the key tactical structures documented in libertarian-anarchist and Jihadi extremism,” says the 24-page report, entitled “Network Enabled Anarchy.” [from ncri dot org - when you click on the link, you get a warning about the website: The Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI) is a neutral and independent third party whose mission it is to track, expose, and combat misinformation, deception, manipulation, and hate across social media channels.

La Raza teaches that the territory that was ceded to the US by Mexico in 1848 (most of the Western US states) belongs to them and that once enough Latino immigrants, legal or illegal claim a majority, the current borders of the United States will be extinguished. Webb says we should keep our eyes on Ellison, who has publicly supported both Antifa and the Muslim Brotherhood and who he believes is a major coordinator of these and other extremist groups – and their gun-running activities.
