George Soros Argues for Censorship of Social Media to Fight Populism

Wiki

George Soros is demanding that the European Union regulate social media because voters’ minds are being controlled and “manipulated” as populism is gaining favor in Europe and the US. He warned that an alliance between big tech companies and regulators in the US could lead to totalitarian control.  His concerns are deeply hypocritical as he has been pushing the globalist agenda for control for decades by funding non-profit groups. He is now the subject of an ‘anti-Soros’ bill in his native Hungary, as the country seeks to limit his influence and meddling.

Echoing a sentiment that was one of the defining points of his hour-long speech to the world’s financial and political elite at Davos, billionaire hedge funder (and supporter of far-left causes from Eastern Europe to the US) George Soros is taking his rhetoric a step further and calling for supranational governments to intervene and regulate Facebook, Google and other large social media websites.

Per Breitbart, Soros is demanding that the European Union regulate social media because voters’ minds are being controlled and “manipulated”.

Soros is claiming the reach of social media firms made them a “public menace” while arguing they had led people to vote against globalist causes, including electing President Trump (all his ramblings about “open societies” aside)…

“They deceive their users by manipulating their attention, targeting them to their own economic interests and (…) depending on their services (…)

The platforms are similar to gambling companies (…) and force people to renounce their freedom (…). …), to renounce what John Stuart Mill called the freedom of thought “

Soros – who recently became the subject of a “anti-Soros” bill in his native Hungary that seeks to limit the activities of groups that for which he’s provided funding – accusations about manipulation are blatantly hypocritical, as anybody familiar with his 30-year campaign to push open borders, multiculturalism and a generally globalist tenor of government would know.
