The US Supreme Court and Donald Trump’s Republican Party represent a greater threat to the US than Russia and China and must be defeated by any means necessary, Democrat mega-donor George Soros said in an op-ed published on the Fourth of July.
Soros, 91, has previously called for regime change in China and a quick victory over Russia. In his latest syndicated opinion piece, he called them “repressive regimes” that “want to impose an autocratic form of government on the world.” However, he argued, a far greater threat to the US comes from the “domestic enemies of democracy,” which include “the current Supreme Court, which is dominated by far-right extremists, and Donald Trump’s Republican Party,” which put them there.
Echoing President Joe Biden, Soros denounced the court for last month’s Dobbs ruling, which overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade precedent when it came to abortions. He said the logic of the ruling endangers other rights recognized under the Fourteenth Amendment, “among them the right to contraception, same-sex marriage, and LGBTQ rights” but possibly even inter-racial marriage.
“It is also clear that this Court intends to mount a frontal attack on the executive branch,” Soros argued, pointing to the rulings regarding the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency, gun ownership, and redistricting. The common denominator in the court’s recent verdicts is to “support causes promoted by Trump’s Republican Party and weaken or outlaw causes favored by the Democratic Party,” he insisted.
