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.

    He and the left have been trying to foment revolution for quite a while now. They are constantly pitting one group against another: black/minority against white, the 99% against the 1%, women against conservatives and just about any other way you can think of.

    Since the Feds under Holder and Obama won't do anything about it, I hope state and local comes down hard on them and shows no mercy on them. This is why Obama needs to go among many other reasons.
  • Franklin All Ame... 2012/04/09 13:37:46

    Soros and all his builderburg buddies have genocide planned for the future as well, check out their views on depopulation.

    People in the USA think that a change in party would ease such legislation... this makes me laugh.
  • Path60 2012/04/08 12:09:59
    Now I want everyone to pay very close attention to this one statement and then look at the Obama administration. He is fomenting class warfare and division as a campaign strategy, he and his czars are driving us to fiscal ruin...what does he and his administration gain by civil unrest? Marshal law perhaps?......pay very close attention and vote wisely you may pay the price if you dont.

    “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.”

    What really bothers me about this statement from the first time I read it when I read the article and now, on this the fourth or fifth read is the "which would be a break with the tradition of the United States."

    My understanding re: using the word "break" in a statement suggests to me as the reader to expect a "welcomed change". I'm not of the belief that this will be a "welcomed change" for me, those I know and love or our country. Hardly. I believe he should've used the word "conflict"... i.e. "which would conflict with the tradition of the United States." or better yet "would be in direct conflict with the tradition of the United States."

    Simply put, that was not a Freudian slip on Soros' part... he meant to say what he said. He and his handlers and those he's handling (on down the food chain) do view it as a "welcomed change" from the tradition of the United States. A change promised many times over the years. Never as loud as in '07/08 though.

    Soros is simply citing phase 2 of the overall plan. Telling us what to expect next. Much like the executioner tell you he's about to lop off your head.

    Yeah, hope and change my ass!

    He should know, he's the one funding it.
  • BwaHa darthtbone 2012/04/08 18:02:03
    He's the spokesperson for those who are funding it. He's a puppet too... just much, much higher up the food chain than obummer.

    Okay... whatever. Predict away.

    I predict I'll be around and working where I'm working in 2015... retiring from my job of over 35 yrs. in 2017.

    I'll throw in a wager if you want...
  • dallas BwaHa 2012/04/15 06:11:21
  • BwaHa dallas 2012/04/15 07:32:09
    Unless I die of natural causes or an accident I'll make it. Odds are I'll be there to get that first retirement check...

    ... then it's off to the river bank with the fly rod.

    I'll play the odds that it's right... but you're right, it's an assumption. More people my age make it to retirement than not. My chosen career might have a higher failure rate re: making it to retirement (intact) than most but I'm still hedging that it's going to work out...
