Kenneth Vogel of the Politico has a good piece today on the preeminent funder of the far left, the twisted George Soros.
Soros, who has been called a wartime Nazi collaborator for his actions in his native Hungary, whined about political polarization, claiming it was “endangering our open society.”
“As I see it, the two sides in the current disputes have each got hold of one half of the truth which they proclaim to be the whole truth,” Soros told an audience at the Cato Institute this week.
Blah blah blah. Tedious stuff.
In Vogel's article David Boaz of Cato says the kind of thing that embarrasses me as a libertarian. His sanctimonious Soros-like cop-out "pox on both your houses" attitude towards right and left is irresponsible. He just doesn't seem to get it and this kind of moralistic posing frequently seen among my fellow libertarians is getting really tiresome. Come on, Cato people, you're better than that.
