    George Soros a terrorist?

    Sheepy will love this one...

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...eorge-soros-t/

    “George Soros has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition against the United States and its citizens,” the petition states, through allegedly creating and funding organizations exclusively devoted to facilitating “the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United States”
    Mr. Soros “has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the U.S. Federal government,” according to the petitioners, and “the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic terrorists.”
    He's certainly a manipulator who uses his money to sway events where he can, but can he be classed a terrorist?

    Let's accept your assessment as true for the sake of argument.

    Is he a terrorist and, if so, how? Which definition of terrorist does he fit?

    Nah. He is certainly a wheeler dealer who spotted a good oportunity a quarter century ago, but he isn't a terrorist and I doubt that he is much of a manipulator, although I rather suspect that he likes the idea of being thought one.

    I do not believe he is a terrorist - generally a terrorist is a 'freedom fighter' for another person / group. Soros seems to have only his own interests at heart, so no I do not believe he is. What I do think however, he is not being entirely honest and open about his reasons for the Brexit debate. I fully appreciate what he is said to have been through (and if the records of history are accurate, no human should ever have to suffer like that) - maybe that has forced him into a selfish character, only looking out for himself - but no I do not believe he is... I don't trust his motives all the same, and as said previously on another post - his involvement with a group called 'best for britain' is laughable [unless what you believe to be best for Britain is having your currency trashed, then in that case soros is your man]

    As for the conspiracy theories about him - I actually think he is a front man for something else... The real beneficiaries of almost every conflict in recent history are a particular group of people. They know who they are, though I suspect they don't read this forum... One of them likes making wine, so I should imagine they spend their evenings sitting around drinking it rather than mess around on the internet

    he is without doubt a man who has made handsome profits from ruining this country

    he would, in any civilised world, be shot by our armed forces on sight as an enemy if the state.

    But is he in any way a terrorist ?

    I think not

    probably a money laundered for many though

    He uses his vast wealth to fund and encourage mob violence to help destabilise the country he is a citizen of, and all to suit his own agenda.

    That sounds like domestic terrorism to me (fear and violence with a political objective). Even in this country people are beaten down for expressing views that aren't authorised by the state, but many on here probably think that's a good thing.

    in every dictionary definition I can see, terrorism is the use or espousement of VIOLENCE as a means to a political goal.

    I am not sure Soros funds or advocates violence and for that reason I am much saddened to see the definition fails in his case.

    it is clear he does engage in and bankroll political activity to his advantage and the disadvantage of others but regrettably that's it
