Billionaire wants Democratic landslide to defeat Supreme Court and ‘far-right’ Trump
The United States Supreme Court and Donald Trump’s Republican Party pose a greater threat to the United States than Russia and China and must be defeated by any means necessary, Democratic mega-donor George Soros said in an editorial published on July 4.
Soros, 91, has previously called for regime change in China and a quick victory over Russia. In his latest syndicated opinion piece, he called them “repressive regimes” this “want to impose an autocratic form of government on the world”.However, he argued, a far greater threat to the United States comes from the “Domestic Enemies of Democracy” which includes “the current Supreme Court, which is dominated by far-right extremists, and Donald Trump’s Republican Party”, who put them there.
Echoing President Joe Biden, Soros slammed the court for last month’s Dobbs decision, which overturned the previous Roe v. Wade of 1973 regarding abortions. He said the logic of the decision puts other Fourteenth Amendment rights at risk, “Among them, the right to contraception, same-sex marriage and LGBTQ rights” but maybe even interracial marriage.
“It is also clear that this Court intends to mount a frontal attack on the executive branch,” Soros argued, pointing to decisions about the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency, gun ownership and redistricting. The common denominator of the Court’s recent verdicts is “support causes promoted by Trump’s Republican Party and weaken or prohibit causes favored by the Democratic Party”, he insisted.
The Dobbs judgment is “is part of a carefully crafted plan to turn the United States into a repressive regime”, Soros wrote, and the only way to stop them is to “throwing the Republican Party out of power in a landslide”, Soros argued. Democrats currently control the White House and both houses of Congress.
Republicans “attack our system of democracy from all angles”, Soros wrote, accusing the party of having “Stacked” both the Supreme Court and many lower courts with “extremist judges” and pass laws that “make it very difficult to vote” and “facilitate the subversion of the electoral system” at the state level.
The “The survival of democracy in the United States is gravely threatened”, Soros concluded, adding that “we must do everything to prevent this” including reaching out to some Republicans who voted for Trump but reject his “big lie” that there were irregularities in the 2020 elections. “restore a functioning two-party political system that is central to American democracy.”
