Apparently, George Soros is receiving a persona non grata from Russia. But not to worry, he has friends in high places.
State Department ‘troubled’ by Moscow’s move against Soros groups
The U.S. State Department says it is “troubled” by Russia’s decision to ban two of liberal billionaire George Soros’ pro-democracy charities and label the organizations a threat to national security.
“Today’s designation of the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation as so-called ‘undesirable’ organizations will only further restrict the work of civil society in Russia for the benefit of the Russian people,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Monday. “This action is yet another example of the Russian Government’s growing crackdown on independent voices and a deliberate step to further isolate the Russian people from the world.”
Moscow, we have a problem.
Since when is it necessary for the State Dept to stand up and defend Soros and his meddling? How dare Russia restrict the progressive Marxist’s ‘main-squeeze’ Soros!
Gotta love that: the pro-gay, same-sex marriage pushing, George Soros led, meddling State Department has issues with Moscow. Obama’s State turned foreign affairs into, well, ‘Foreign Affairs‘. How much help will Obama’s executive pen be with this?
