George Soros Condemns the Victims of Jihadist Terrorism for Fighting Back
Leftwing radical billionaire George Soros fancies himself as "some kind of god." He believes in the delusion that he is endowed with special insight into what is best for the world, even as his declarations defy reality and any objective distinction between good and evil.
Soros's latest example of self-righteous tripe was his op-ed article, appearing on December 28th in The Guardian, in which he blamed the "hysterical anti-Muslim reaction to terrorism" for helping jihadist groups recruit more fighters to their cause. He wrote that "the fear of death leads us and our leaders to think – and then behave – irrationally...when we are afraid for our lives, emotions take hold of our thoughts and actions, and we find it difficult to make rational judgments. Fear activates an older, more primitive part of the brain than that which formulates and sustains the abstract values and principles of open society."
Sorry to pop Soros's balloon, but open societies will not be "open" for long if the jihadists succeed in expanding their Islamic supremacist ideology to the West. It is both a rational judgment of free peoples and a perfectly understandable human emotion to want to fight and destroy those who want to kill us.
