Podcast host Joe Rogan has an idea about billionaire George Soros, and it’s straight out of the movies.
On Wednesday’s edition of The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE), the comedian welcomed former CIA operative Mike Baker. Amid the interview, a famed name came up.
“I had a conversation…about him with (Republican Texas Gov.) Greg Abbott, where he was explaining to me what George Soros does.”
Joe isn’t a fan of George’s reported approach to crime:
“[I]t’s [flipping] terrifying that he donates money to a very progressive, very leftist — whether it’s a DA or whatever — politician and then funds someone who’s even further Left than them to go against them. And (he) just keeps moving it along. So he’s playing, like, a global game. And he enjoys doing it.”
Much has certainly been made of Soros’s backing. In 2021, the New York Post noted his major moves:
For the last several years, billionaire philanthropist George Soros has been quietly financing a revolution in criminal justice reform, doling out tens of millions of dollars to progressive candidates in district attorney races throughout the country amid movements to abolish bail and defund the police.
Working with an activist attorney, Soros, 91, mainly funnels cash through a complicated web of federal and state political action committees as well as non-profits from coast to coast, public records show.
His investments in personnel have included Los Angeles DA George Cascón. Last June, RedState’s Jennifer Oliver O’Connell offered searing words regarding radically-soft-on-crime Gascón and “illegitimate (media) outlets that gave him rise”:
What a disservice to the citizens of Los Angeles County and the victims of crimes who have been disenfranchised and re-victimized thanks to Gascón’s policies. These victims are overwhelmingly women, and overwhelmingly people of color. This is usually the favorite victim groups of progressives nationwide, yet these are the groups that are being ignored and dismissed because of Gascón’s wet dream of criminal justice reimagined.
Back to JRE, erstwhile CIA man Mike pointed to America’s most potent power seats:
“You know, we sometimes think, ‘A senator — that’s the pinnacle of success.’ Well, it’s not, really. It’s the DAs, and it’s the state-level politicians. That’s where real change occurs and where things can happen.”
Soros, Mike said, “likes being the puppet master. He likes pulling strings, he likes having that influence and that impact.”
Joe called to horror:
“That’s what’s scary. It seems like he funds corrosion. It’s like he wants these cities to fall apart.”
George is quite the Joker:
“He wants crime to flourish. It’s almost like he’s an evil person in a Batman movie.”
Though Joe is frequently accused of being right-wing, he definitely is not. And it isn’t often anyone not firmly on the Right is heard casting George Soros in a negative light — or any light at all. Are more people in the middle becoming aware of the man? They are now — as Joe Rogan continues to defy categorization and expose his listeners to ideas they may not hear in their respective bubbles. Money talks, and George Soros has a lot of it. But when Joe Rogan talks, 11 million people listen.
