When George Soros Speaks, Capitalism Listens

Because Socialism! or something.

J.C. Penney shares finished up 11.6% Friday following news late Thursday that hedge fund mogul George Soros has taken a large stake in the retailer, and a report from CNBC Friday afternoon that Goldman Sachs has secured $1.75 billion in financing for the company.

Stock surging? That’s not how an anti-American socialist is supposed to act! George Soros is trying to destroy capitalism from within! Ahhhhhhhhhhh!

Signed, Wingnuts.

    So George Soros invests in J.C. Penney and the commenters at the CNN Money link argue simultaneously that: (a) Soros is a socialist who hates capitalism and (b) Soros will make a huge profit from his investment.

    How are these people not bewildered by doorknobs?
