Soros: Occupy To Turn Violent

Billionaire George Soros is predicting protests by Occupy Wall Street will turn violent, while warning the U.S. financial system may collapse.

In an interview with Newsweek writer John Arlidge, Soros reportedly said riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable.

“‘Yes, yes, yes,’ he says, almost gleefully,” when asked about the prospect of Occupy turning violent, writes Arlidge.

Soros claimed the riots will “be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States.”

“At times like these, survival is the most important thing,” Soros continued.

“I am not here to cheer you up. The situation is about as serious and difficult as I’ve experienced in my career,” Soros said.

Every previous comment is correct.Soros is a master of psychology bent on perpetuating the occupy movement.It is truly infortunate that people are hinged on his every word.In the current political economic climate he would be better off ignored by all.I recognize an instigator when I see one.

Where are they going to get a job at genus?

Why you keep telling people to shut up? They are actually trying to get something good done for EVERYONE.

You are just whining. Why don't you just shut up already? You get a job. You keep your opinion to yourself.

That's what you are telling others. How do you like it?

Practice what you speech.
