White supremacists and neo-Nazis held a grotesque rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August that may have actually changed the course of the Trump regime, leading to the firing of Steve Bannon, but Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) doesn't believe white supremacists organized it.
Gosar believes it was a false-flag operation.
GOSAR: Because let’s look at the person that actually started the rally. It’s come to our attention that this is a person from Occupy Wall Street that was an Obama sympathizer. So, wait a minute, be careful where you start taking these people to.
And look at the background. You know, you know George Soros is one of those people that actually helps back these individuals. Who is he? I think he’s from Hungary. I think he was Jewish. And I think he turned in his own people to the Nazis. Better be careful where we go with those.
VICE News: Do you think George Soros funded the neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville?
GOSAR: Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out?
It it wasn't already clear that this is a deeply anti-Semitic smear from Rep. Gosar, George Soros was just 9 years old in 1939 when the Nazis launched their blitzkrieg of Europe. The idea that he collaborated with the Nazis when he was a child just like he's (supposedly) collaborating with Nazis in 2017, and to say that he's "one of those people" that actually helps Nazis, is more of dog-bullhorn than a dog-whistle.
As for alt-Reich organizer Jason Kessler, it's true that he claims he voted for President Obama in 2008, but we have no way of knowing if that's true. Many white nationalists (and some liberal agitators on far left) like to say they voted for Obama and use that as a shield to unfairly criticize him and his legacy. Even if it were true, all it really tells us is that hey had a moment of clarity at least once in their lives.
Republicans have also claimed George Soros funds anti-Trump marches throughout the country so he must be running out of money, don't you think?
