George Soros Tweet Ruled HATE SPEECH
(TheRedWire.com) – Over the last several election cycles, billionaire left-wing Democratic supporter George Soros bolstered the campaigns of several progressive district attorneys who appear to back criminals’ rights over those of their victims. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) recently posted a tweet lashing out at Democrats for blocking his effort to pass legislation for prosecutors to detain violent criminals while they await trial. Progressives quickly responded to the post, accusing Rubio of using hate speech.
Rubio’s detractors characterized his post as constituting hate speech using various logic trains. For example, they point to the fact that Soros is a Hungarian-born-Jewish American.
.@marcorubio what is a Soros backed prosecutor? Do you mean Jewish? Asking for the many Floridians who are Jewish and who will be voting soon. With anti Semitism running rampant in the state, you serve as Senator of, one would think you avoid this kind of talk, unless………

Florida gun control activist Fred Guttenberg asked Rubio on Twitter what “Soros-backed prosecutor” means. He went on to answer his own question, stating it was code for anti-Semitism.
The activist wasn’t alone. Democratic strategist Greg Pinelo opined that Soros means “Jewish” and called it an ugly reference. Head of the American Federation of Teachers Randi Weingarten said invoking the billionaire’s name was coded anti-Semitism.
So, it appears Soros’s record and name may be hurting progressive politicians and policies with the public. If that’s true, what better way to silence someone than claiming a form of racism? To conservatives, it has nothing to do with the man’s race. It’s about his left-wing dollars funding a dangerous agenda hurting Americans on the streets.
So, will the attacks work?
