Media Matters, George Soros and rightwing callers...

When Media Matters on Sirius radio is pounding, relentlessly and appropriately, someone like Rush or Hannity or Fox, inevitably a caller calls and says:

"Why dont you expose your donation from George Soros?"

So my question to the world is, what position does Soros hold that makes him such a bad guy to be associated with?

......




BTW, the Koch's donate to media or create entities that advertise and we know their positions, dont we....i.e. if you are not rich, you are fucked

4. He's a liberal billionaire.

Or as repukes of FDR's time would have called him: "A traitor to his class."

The reich-wingers think that all the money should be on their side.

6. The point is what in the world could a guy making $20 an hour at the local plant

have against a guy who wants everyone to have a better life?

Nothing...they wont be able to find anything, and in their search maybe their eyes will be opened to the fact that they have been supporting billionaires at their peril.

13. Don't harsh the minion-mellow, maaaan!

Your checks have been in those things marked "Chiquita." You got the memo, right? George teletyped it to everyone.




What do you mean, "What's a teletype?" If you have to ask....

12. Soros holds a very prominent position... as designated bad guy

You may remember a phrase from the Reagan administration: "paint white hats on our guys and black hats on the other guys."

Soros had a black hat "painted" on him a long time ago, probably during the Clinton years, and have kept thumping the drumbeat whenever it was convenient.

After all, a goodly portion of the right is in love with the idea that liberals and leftists are all dupes or agents of some nefarious power. Saying that we were getting our marching orders "straight from the Kremlin" became untenable after the Soviet Union was dissolved, and blaming "political correctness" (which became a conservative buzzword at precisely that moment in history), while useful, still misses some of the qualities of a designated villain. Thus, conservatives stuff Soros into a Ming The Merciless costume and make a piņata out of him.

How many of the people who say "what about Soros" don't know that Charles and David Koch are each, individually richer than Soros? And have put more money toward influencing politics to their liking, for much longer, and far more strategically than Soros?

How many know that just the Koch Brothers plus Sheldon Adelson have about six times as much money as Soros?

Not many. Because their "trusted sources" can be trusted to never mention inconvenient things like that.
