Those two extremes are far closer in their ingrained inability to discuss anything with civility than they realize.

I think they realize it perfectly and milk it for all its worth.

It’s strange how Soros’ name never comes up in this context. 
 

for me personally I think the Soros stuff is just a alt-right conspiracy theory. He's the same thing as the Koch brothers for the left.

wonder why it's Soros that's always brought up? The Jewish billionaire globalist boogeyman is not a new phenomenon.

You think that the extreme ideologues of either side of the spectrum are aware of their similarities in rigidity of conviction and messaging and they milk it for profit? Fair enough.

Thats Racist GIFs | Tenor

 

or 

 

Tinfoil hats actually make brain control easier, report suggest

 

But in all seriousness..... always follow the money.  

 

For example Soros' organization contributed over $1 million dollars to Gregor Robertson's mayoral campaign... but either than a few websites posting the links tracing the funds... no one else bothered to question it.

His name comes up all the time and it’s usually based in old anti-Semitic tropes of him being a scheming Jew when he happens to simply be one of many extremely rich, old white men around the world using his power and money to influence politics in a manner he deems favorable; just like the Koch brothers.

Where do you live now? 
Are you seeing much on the streets which matches what is shown on TV? 

 

Los Angeles and it’s quiet at the moment but we did have protests the day the Louisville DA announced no one would face accountability for Breonna Tayler’s murder.

Pretty much yep. The funny thing is the Koch bros are/were worth way more than Soros (to the tune of 5-10x) but somehow he is the one pulling all the strings around the globe. But hey follow the money I guess....

 

EDIT:

 

Apparently the CK foundation teamed up with Soros' Open Society to create an anti-war think tank... Now they're working together....We're doomed!!!!!

In essence, that level of ideological conviction and extremism is an act?

I think most folks on TV might be playing the part, but their role does have an effect on the less than discerning purveyor of information.

What you want to do is put a face on your enemy and create a bogeyman that your base can rally around.

Besides greedy Jews controlling the world you also want to insert replacement theory.

 

Soros is flooding white countries with mud people and hordes of 3rd world immigrants.

Soon they will replace the white folk through high birth rates and genocide.

 

Soros is the ultimate enemy in Hungary, U.S, Russia, Italy, Turkey, Armenia, Australia etc.

Many right wingers like Orban, Erdogan or Salvini owe their popularity to him.

It’s truly an old as dirt strategy. Unfortunately, it happens to work.

All MSM is bad.  Except one actually made legal arguments that reasonable people shouldn't take one of the most watched cable news shows seriously.

Independent journalists and reporters and news outlets on social media and other platforms are much more reliable. In fact, I think they’re turning into and may already be the new MSM. People are moving with the times and it’s readily available to see. Nice not having to decipher bs like the TV MSM we’ve been accustomed to... Ratings/views wise, it echoes the same sentiment that there’s been a shift. MSM on TV is running but taking losses. 
 

 

this is why I don’t trust classic MSM for the most part
