If you only listened to AM conservative radio then the picture you have of George Soros, a noted progressive billionaire philanthropist and investor would be quite tainted. For years, Soros has become the favorite punching bag of right-wing America. He’s been blamed for every conspiracy known to man. According to conservative media, Soros is the mastermind behind the NFL anthem protests, the Black Lives Matters movement and even the group known as Antifa. Pretty busy guy, right?

IN a move that stunned the world, and rocked his charity, Soros moved almost his entire fortune in a massive donation. Soros just gave $18 billion to his foundation, the Open Society Foundations, to further the pursuit of humanitarian comfort and social progress around the world.

Over the span of the Nazi occupation, Soros would see countless family members and friends carted off and killed by the Nazi regime.
