George Soros and the Muslim Brotherhood?

I haven't seen the magazine article yet, but The Blaze magazine is promoting its cover story on the ties between Soros and the Muslim Brotherhood:
In an exclusive report for the May issue of The Blaze Magazine, we expose the underreported close ties between billionaire investor and liberal financier George Soros has with the Muslim Brotherhood. Turns out the left-wing sugar daddy is a fan of the radical movement that is seeking to take over Egypt and the rest of the Middle East, implement Shariah Law and establish a global caliphate.
Good luck to the MB trying to "establish a global caliphate." I'm not sure how well that would go over on, say, South Beach. However things develop in Egypt, it is a learning point about revolution. Overthrowing a government is one thing, what is really important, though, is what you replace it with. The world in general fails to understand the problems with central planners and the importance of freedom. As long as this situation exists, one totalitarian government is likely to simply be replaced with another totalitarian government. The revolutions and deaths are often for naught.


  1. "The world in general fails to understand the problems with central planners and the importance of freedom."

    So true. Robert LeFevre articulated this very well in this epilogue of his autobiography:

    A Way To Be Free

  2. Remember the disastrous outcome of the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Chinese Revolution under Mao, and the Iranian Revolution of 1979.

    What revolution has gone well, other than the US revolt in 1776?

    1. The Velvet Revolution.. The Singing Revolution...The...oh forget it. Anyone who thinks the only good revolution was the US is never going to learn

  3. Soros gives money to every revolutionary group, and by doing so he buys influence. Revolutions make new regimes, and new regimes need credit. Creditors make a killing, because lending money to people with a newly-minted license to steal is a profitable enterprise.

    The symbiotic relationship between financiers and revolutionaries goes back at least to early 20th century Moscow. Antony Sutton's Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution is available for free online and has as many details about it as you could want.
