Will MoveOn.org now refuse Soros’ money? (update)
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, February 28, 2007

Lance, at A Second Hand Conjecture, cites a post by Joshua at The Conjecturer (see, Lance is living up to his blog's name) which points out that George Soros has bought a stake in Halliburton, the corporate whipping-boy of the left:
According to papers filed with the SEC, in the fourth quarter of 2006 Soros purchased nearly 2 million shares of … hold your breath … Halliburton. The Halliburton shares reportedly went for an average purchase price of $31.30 a share. That puts Soros’ total investment in Halliburton at around $62.6 million, or about 2 percent of his total portfolio.

Soros, of course, is the dean of Democratic money giving. And Halliburton, of course, is the company that embodies everything the Democrats see as evil. Dick Cheney is its former chief, for goodness’ sake. But Soros is also a man of contradictions. He supported campaign finance reform for years, only to declare that defeating President George W. Bush was the “central focus” of his life. To prove it, he sunk $24 million of his own “soft” money into the 2004 campaign, helping make that election one of the most divisive in modern history.
Question: will MoveOn.org now refuse Soros' tainted money?

UPDATE: Soros' organization, "Open Society Institute" has been quite outspoken in its condemnation of Halliburton. I guess this again proves that money talks and BS walks.

It didn’t stop Mikey Moore from investing in Halliburton either. I guess that makes him and Soros war profiteers. My real question is if Soros called Bush a Nazi again at the time of purchase...

Yet another entry into the "do as I say not as I do" pantheon

Of course not. Their position (if they deign to mention one) will be something along the line of "We think Soros did this to have some influence over Halliburton’s heinous corporate practices, and we look forward to blah, blah."

Billy,

It will be something like "he’s a Robin Hood investor! He invests those profits back into society!"

Come, come now. Everybody knows that Soros buying a stake in Haliburton only proves that America is an oligarchical corporate entity and that the supposed "two party system" is in fact a cover for the systematic oppression of the common man by the ruling elite.

I mean, if voting really could change the system, it would be outlawed.

They just demonized Haliburton to drive the stock price down before they buy in.

I am sure Soros and MoveOn will rehabilitate and purify those tainted, corrupt dollars before they use them only for worthy purposes, so it is okay.
