So we now discover yet another similarity between Left and Right -- they both seem to get powerful motivation by singling out a billionaire on the opposite side of the political spectrum and then blaming all manner of conspiracies on him. The right has had fun for years vilifying George Soros and so the Left, sad to be left out of the fun, has latched onto the Koch brothers. The objective is to tar an individual so thoroughly that mere suggestion that he supports a particular issue casts so much doubt on the issue that its merits do not even have to be argued. This is a game that climate alarmists were really pioneers at devising, tarring skeptics for years at the mere hint that some organization they are related to got 0.1% of its funding from Exxon. I know folks play this game in my comment section from time to time.
This is a game I find utterly exhausting and absolutely without merit, a black hole of intellectual productivity. For God sakes there are 524,000 Google results for "soros-funded." Of what possible value is this adjective? Perhaps at its best it is a proxy for "left-leaning" but then why not just use those more descriptive words?
