The shocking story is here:
Law enforcement officials responded to an incident at the home of liberal billionaire George Soros on Monday evening, an officer with the Bedford, New York, police department told HuffPost.
A Soros employee opened a package containing an explosive device and called police Monday afternoon, prompting bomb squad technicians to come to detonate it, The New York Times reported.
Soros has been a frequent target of conspiracy theories and fear-mongering by hyper-nationalist conservatives in the U.S. and Europe, who often rely on anti-Semitic tropes when they characterize him as a shadowy figure encouraging mass migration and torpedoing traditional Christian culture. President Donald Trump has personally attacked him as well.
Soros has become a hate symbol among Right-wingers, who attack him verbally with insane fury and hatred. Now it appears that one of the Right wing haters has taken it to the next level.
From the BBC, right here:
US-based right-wing conspiracy theorists and websites have accused Mr. Soros of secretly engineering a range of recent events in the US and global politics.
They have alleged he was involved in recruiting crowds for the anti-Trump Women’s March and even organizing violence in Charlottesville to undermine the country’s political right wing.
Mr. Soros has also become a political target worldwide for nationalists and populists, who paint him as a master manipulator of democracy.
The FBI has been called in.
This is an ominous sign.
