Given Glenn Beck's recent obsession with Soros, it would be nice if someone expanded the article. --ZooGuard (talk) 17:37, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Still no mention of it?--ZooGuard (talk) 06:53, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Conspiracy Theories[edit]

Does anyone have some sources on how all these Soros conspiracy theories started? I am not saying it isn't a possibility,but I am interested into seeing how he came out to be the boogeyman.-Maeve (talk) 09:39, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

I don't think there's much to it beyond he's rich and he gives money to (not very) left-wing groups. Also he's Jewish, so all the anti-Semites can't help themselves in fingering him as one of the sinister Jewish puppetmasters. --Ymir (talk) 09:59, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
While I don't know much about the origin of the Soros crankery, I know much about the perpetuation of it. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 10:13, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Nazi collaborator[edit]

It does appear that Soros assisted in the confiscation of property from Jewish persons -- see -- though this is not nearly as bad as the "Nazi collaborator" label implies. We should rectify the article. Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 00:14, 2 December 2017 (UTC)


Hi, refs 4 and 5 don't suggest that Soros had anything to do with weakening Russia's economy, and 5 doesn't seem to mention Soros at all(?). It appears that Soros made public comments to benefit his funds, but it seems a bit of a stretch to give him so much credit.

I understand that it is (supposed to be) a joke, but it doesn't really make any sense. Am I missing the punchline? Is it supposed to be that Soros is blamed for things that he didn't do? In this case maybe a link to someone blaming him might help? Lgs (talk) 05:25, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
