Soros Says Democracy Is Far Right Extremism

990px-2016_Presidential_Election_by_County.svg.png (990×627)

George Soros has devoted his life and wealth to undermining the economies and stability of western democracies, and he is upset. He says recent Supreme Court decisions to restore the ability of the public and their elected representatives to govern themselves  is an attack on democracy by Trump’s far right extremists, and that it has Americans “alarmed.”

“US Democracy Under Concerted Attack

Jul 4, 2022   GEORGE SOROS

The American public has been alarmed and aroused by the US Supreme Court’s growing extremism. But voters need to recognize the Court’s radical majority for what it is: part of a carefully laid plan to turn the US into a repressive regime.

NEW YORK – The United States has been a constantly evolving democracy ever since it was founded in 1776, but its survival as a democracy is now gravely endangered. A set of loosely interconnected developments at home and abroad is responsible for this crisis.

From abroad, the US is threatened by repressive regimes led by Xi Jinping in China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia who want to impose an autocratic form of government on the world.

But the threat to the US from the domestic enemies of democracy is even greater. They include the current Supreme Court, which is dominated by far-right extremists, and Donald Trump’s Republican Party, which placed those extremists on the Court.

What qualifies the majority of the Court as extremists? It is not merely their decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that recognized a woman’s right to choose whether to give birth. What qualifies them as extremists is the arguments they used to justify their decision and the indications they gave of how far they might be willing to go in carrying out those arguments.

Justice Samuel Alito, the author of the majority opinion, based his ruling on the assertion that the Fourteenth Amendment protects only those rights that were generally recognized in 1868, when the amendment was ratified. But this argument endangers many other rights that have been recognized since then, among them the right to contraception, same-sex marriage, and LGBTQ rights.

Carried to its logical conclusion, this line of reasoning could even allow states to ban inter-racial marriage, as some did until 1967. It is also clear that this Court intends to mount a frontal attack on the executive branch. One of the most consequential rulings of the Court’s just-completed term denied the Environmental Protection Agency the authority to issue regulations needed to combat climate change.

Tropical Heatwave In New York

“We’re having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave. Also a temperate heat wave and an Arctic heat wave, with temperatures reaching the high 80s in northern Norway.”

“And the Republican majority on the Supreme Court just voted to limit the Biden administration’s ability to do anything about it.”

Mr. Stefansson then referred to ‘the “Great University of Unlearning”’ he attended in the Arctic, He found in the Arctic, he said, that 40 to 60 per cent of what he had been taught about that region was incorrect,

Fallacies About Eskimos

For instance, he explained, Eskimos do not make a habit of drinking oil and, although some Eskimos have snow houses, most of them never heard of such abodes until they were told about them by European travelers. Mr. Stefansson added that the United States Weather Bureau had published the fact that temperature went as high as 100 degrees (Fahrenheit) in the shade north of the Arctic Circle.

In 1927, a group of women tried to drive to the Arctic Ocean. Hot weather, melting permafrost and forest fires forced them to abandon their expedition.

the motor party journeyed to 270 miles north of the Arctic Circle, prepared for freezing weather. To their continued astonishment the temperature was never’ less than 90 degrees in the shade

The intention was to reach the Arctic Ocean, but 40 miles of marsh country on the coast prevented this. An average of 210 miles a day was made on the journey, which was arduous in the extreme, ahd at one time the car had an actual race with death among the forest fires in Sweden over terrible roads

Rule Of Law Defined By Left Wing Hysterics

“The US Supreme Court has issued a series of rulings that seriously upset the rule of law in America. Most notably, the court stripped women’s rights to abortion at the federal level. Other rulings on issues such as gun control and secularism have curtailed the country’s forward progress.

All of these are seriously damaging to US civil society. But another recent ruling by the Supreme Court on climate change will impact the world. On June 30, the court ruled that the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not have the authority to broadly limit carbon emissions for existing power plants. This is a major blow in the global fight against climate change and will challenge administrative power in the US in the future”
