George Soros predicts riots, police state and class war for America

He should know since he's the one funding the whole thing!

“I am not here to cheer you up. The situation is about as serious and difficult as I’ve experienced in my career,” Soros tells Newsweek. “We are facing an extremely difficult time, comparable in many ways to the 1930s, the Great Depression. We are facing now a general retrenchment in the developed world, which threatens to put us in a decade of more stagnation, or worse. The best-case scenario is a deflationary environment. The worst-case scenario is a collapse of the financial system.”

Soros goes on to compare the current state of the western world with what the Soviet Union was facing as communism crumbled. Although he would think that history would have taught the globe a thing or two about noticing trends, Soros says that, despite past events providing a perfect example of what is to come, the end of an empire seems imminent.

“The collapse of the Soviet system was a pretty extraordinary event, and we are currently experiencing something similar in the developed world, without fully realizing what’s happening,” adds Soros.

Soros goes on to say that as the crisis in the Eurozone only worsens, the American financial system will continue to be hit hard. On the way to a full-blown collapse, he cautions, Americans should expect society to alter accordingly. Riots will hit the streets, says Soros, and as a result, “It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States.”

The recent adoption of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 and the proposed Enemy Expatriation Act, if approved, have already very well paved the way for such a society. Under the NDAA, the US government is allowed to indefinitely detain and torture American citizens suspected of terror crimes without ever bringing them to trial. Should lawmakers Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Charles Dent (R-PA) get their Enemy Expatriation Act through Congress, the US will also be able to simply revoke citizenship without trial, essentially removing constitutional rights from anyone deemed a threat.

    Soros is funding the OWS crowd, why not the Trayvon Martin bunch? He's already destroyed the Argentine economy, guess we're next.

    It's almost like the beam pouring through the microscope is coming to a finer point with each ensuing month until finally, conflagration. Part of this deal brokering lies squarely in the lap of the officials we elect, and whom we allow to continue a career status.
    The rest are in bed with them, formulating a plan in which we will see an attempt by that 5% to rule the world, and those bought off to do their bidding.

    Time to get engaged and get those laws overturned and then oust those who signed on.

    The idea that Soros or anyone else is funding the decay of western so-called civilization is ludicrous. Our society is crumbling on its own, under the weight of corruption and extreme inequality of wealth and resources, a world-wide problem. Complain all you want about how redistribution of wealth is soul killing socialism, the fact remains that when the impoverished segment of the population reaches critical mass and said poor people feel they have nothing more to lose, all the repression the state and the rich people can bring to bear will not be enough to maintain the status quo.

    George Soros can open his mouth and say all kinds of stupid things. It takes the other 308 million citizens to follow along.

    I'm sure that in SOME cities, a riot may break out here or there, but we've had these before and the country survived.

    I think they are right on track for that! Good paying jobs are no where to be found anymore, the middle class is already destroyed, gas, food, and everything else is going up like crazy, and massive illegal Mexican’s are flooding in the US like crazy with nothing being done about it. It sure looks like this is a well thought out plan! Also, so many people are falling for the college scam like crazy now and getting into massive school loan debt in this horrible economy thinking they are going to have this great paying job when their done. Most people are looking at a $12 per hour jobs if your lucky right out of college in this economy? Good luck paying back $20,000 in school loan debt, rent, food, and all your other bills on a $12 per hour job. The only ones making money in this economy are the colleges. If you want to attend school in this economy, check out your local trade schools. You will get more for your money!

    Well, since Soros and his NWO cohorts, along with their step-n-fetch-it Obama have been tirelessly working towards this so that they can declare a "military state," it really is no surprise that he would predict such a thing.

    Said it before and will say it again - there was FAR too much freedom for OWS punks to run around smearing feces and harassing people. Now they got a big taste of the thrills and saw very few consequences. That amounts to giving them permission to not only do it again but do more.
    In some ways we have ourselves to blame. We should have been smashing them squarely in the face, seeing arrests and real world consequences.
    Meanwhile, an Indian store-owner gets smashed with all kinds of charges for daring to throw spices in the eyes of a would-be robber.

    Anyways, Soros and his left-wing Alinsky buddies (which includes Obama and his terrorist buddies) don't need to be presenting this as 'bad news' SINCE THEY ARE DOING THIS CRAP IN THE FIRST PLACE. Ya.. WE KNOW George! We already know what you are doing a-hole.
  • marianne Jay Theyme 2012/04/09 06:06:21
    in my view, soros is observing and reporting as he sees it.
    why kill the messenger....

    The messenger is reporting the results of his actions. He is reporting his own 'success'.
