Alexander Soros has spoken out against the attempted bomb attacks launched at his father and other powerful Democrats, blaming both Donald Trump and David Duke.
An explosive device was sent to George Soros’ home on Monday afternoon. Two days later, pipe bombs were sent to the offices of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and CNN.
George Soros’ son hit out at the president and former KKK leader in a new op-ed for the New York Times, titled ‘The Hate That Is Consuming Us’.
Alexander Soros argued that while his father has long faced anti-antisemitism, ‘something changed in 2016’.
‘Before that, the vitriol he faced was largely confided to the extremist fringes, among white supremacists and nationalists who sought to undermine the very foundations of democracy,’ Soros writes.

‘But with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, things got worse.’
Soros noted that among Trump’s biggest supporters were ‘white supremacists and anti-Semites like David Duke’.
And Trump’s final television ad before the presidential election featured his father, as well as Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen and Goldman Sachs chairman Lloyd Blankfein.
‘All of them Jewish – amid dog-whistle language about “special interests” and “global special interests,”‘ he added.
‘A genie was let out of the bottle, which may take generations to put back in.’
While Soros agrees that the responsibility for the attempted bomb attacks lies with those who sent the lethal devices to his father’s home, as well as the offices of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, there is plenty of blame to be spread around.

‘I cannot see it divorced from the new normal of political demonization that plagues us today,’ he continued.
‘It is also all too normal that organizations doing important pro-democracy work face existential threats simply because they accept support from the foundations my father started.’
‘And all too normal that political leaders who swear an oath of office to protect all citizens instead pursue politics of division and hate.’
Soros noted that much has changed in America since the day when Senator John McCain defended Obama among his own supporters when they tried to claim he was Muslim.

‘We are far removed from the days when Senator John McCain rebuffed his own supporters during the 2008 election to patriotically defend his opponent,’ he wrote.
‘All because he believed that the health of our democracy was more important than his personal political gain.’
Soros went on to say that he believes America needs a ‘new political discourse’, one that doesn’t demonize Democrats or Republicans.
And, he added, one way to do so would be ridding the government of those who have taken us to this ‘new normal’ in the first place.
‘A first step would be to cast our ballots to reject those politicians cynically responsible for undermining the institutions of our democracy,’ he wrote.
‘And we must do it now, before it is too late.’
