The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion
Could far-right conspiracy theorists just hate Soros? Sure. But to borrow from their rhetoric, that’s what they want you to think. The Soros mythology has so much in common with anti-Semitic classics like The Protocols of the Elders of Zion—a pamphlet cooked up in 1903 during Russia’s Jewish pogroms. It gained a second life in Nazi Germany. In today’s anti-Soros invocations, you can’t miss the signaling
At the crux of The Protocols, a threatening cabal of cosmopolitan elites want to destroy the virtuous (white) nation state. That same formulation crops up in the contemporary alt-right’s outcry against “globalism”—https://www.wired.com/2017/03/internet-protocols-elders-zion/
That’s George Soros, buddy to Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg, notorious elitists, all of them, all but violently opposed to Donald Trump’s presidency. Some kerfuffle over deleted tweets on Twitter
That lot is in fact extremely wealthy, self-professed political Jews who adamantly demand leftist gun control policies, extended background checks, and a multitude of other measures to make the elite feel safer from the poorer classes of street ladies and men who lead rough lives. Their policies maintain and enforce vast and comprehensive lists of banned individuals and personæ non gratæ on NICS and other databases, indistinguishable in principle from Adolf Hitler’s policies in Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
That ultra-wealthy trio is politically liberal, on the side of Hezbollah, Palestine and Iran in their continual wars and intifadas against Israelis and other political conservatives. Are they really Jews or friends of Jews? I trow not.
The actual Protocols, if one wishes to read or refer to that work, is widely available online.

Basically, the work is a satire of a Machivellian plan for total world domination, after the works of Maurice Joly, perhaps more characteristic of Benito Mussolini’s fascist holocaust “plans” than those of the Jews themselves.
The circumstances of its original publication are bizarre, but it certainly does not deserve the strident screams of anti-Semitism and demands for pre-emptive censorship it has gotten from the mainstream media. If any “learned elders” have such “plans” nowadays, it is the leaders of the Christian Democrat Union of Germany, the Christian Social Union of Bavaria, and similar European political parties in cahoots with George Soros, Tom Steyer, and Michael Bloomberg in the United States
I remain “adjudicated as a mental defective” under their vicious, humiliating, and life-destroying Nazi policies. Those political “Jews” have absolutely no right to accuse me of anti-Semitism.
