SOROS: Online Speech Is a ‘Public Menace’ that Must Be Regulated

George Soros is calling upon the European Union to start regulating social media sites.

The billionaire activist believes voters’ minds are being influenced and “manipulated.”

Soros told The Guardian on Thursday the democratic election of Donald Trump, among other opposition to collectivist causes, was a “public menace” due to the volume of people using social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to spread opposition political ideologies. 

He used his social media account to spread the message of regulation to his followers.

The 87-year-old open boarders advocate is an ever present financial influence on politics and elections around the world. He warned of the open and unregulated platform social media provides was a front to the “integrity of elections.”

Free media websites and nationalistic groups have used social media to reach the ear of the people which well-financed and controlled outlets ignored. The creative use of independent communication brought light to a groundswell of counterbalanced ideas to those that Soros and his associates spread.

Since the populist outcome of the Brexit vote, George Soros has met with the European Union’s unelected leadership 11 times. Britain’s elected Prime Minister, Theresa May, pales in comparison with only 3 meetings.

Soros has aggressively opposed Brexit, recently providing half a million British pounds of support to groups blocking the historic vote to leave the E.U.

Soros explained his stance against freedoms on social media in his Guardian piece, concerned that the platforms “influence how people think and behave without them even being aware of it” and “this interferes with the functioning of democracy and the integrity of elections.”

Social media’s effectiveness has surprised Soros in multiple elections with ideas that would otherwise only be spread by those with vast financial means.

The billionaire has concluded people are losing what he called “freedom of mind” before commenting on U.S. politics saying: “This danger does not loom only in the future; it played an important role in the 2016 US presidential election.”

“President Donald Trump would like to establish his own mafia-style state,” he said, equating the U.S. with North Korea.

“The EU commissioner for competition Margrethe Vestager is the champion of the European approach,” he claimed.

The Wikileaks emails released last year revealed Soros’s name appearing on 60 occasions in relationship with the 2016 presidential election. According to the Federal Elections Commission in 2016, Soros donated over $25 million to Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party causes. In 2002 Soros was convicted in a French court of insider trading.

    It’s “open borders” not “open boarders”.

    Soros only wants to defeat free speech when it exists in place where he can maybe do something about it, and when it is a form he doesn’t like–because it is ubiquitous.

      No he wants to turn all countries socialist. He wants total control and power. He wants to take all our freedom.

    Just as the CommieCrats want to take our guns, they want to silence our voices. I say that any attempt to do either must be met with deadly force.

    What is the qualitative difference between online speech and… speech in general. If online speech needs to be regulated, then ALL speech needs to be regulated.

    And by regulated, of course we mean that some speech should be restricted. What speech? Why, whatever is deemed unacceptable by the government.

    “President Donald Trump would like to establish his own mafia-style state.”

    Also: The people must give up all our guns, and the idea that we need protection from the government is ridiculous.

    He has right to be upset. He spent some serious money to control the classical media. And then the new communication technology trumps his investment.
