Chicago Tribune’s John Kass: George Soros Owns the Prosecutors in the Big Cities That Are in Chaos Right Now

I grew up in the Chicago area and my family subscribed to the Tribune for many years, so I’m familiar with John Kass of the Tribune, although I’m sure most people around the country are not. I don’t know if Kass describes himself as a conservative, but as far as Chicago journalists are concerned, he’s easily the most conservative and “right-wing” of them all. He is consistently the lone voice of reason against a leftwing echo chamber.

Well, now The Mob is trying to #Cancel him for asking the Wrong Questions about the big city lawlessness we’ve seen for the past two months:

“Columnist John Kass has defied “cancel culture” at the Chicago Tribune after members of the journalists’ union attacked him for criticizing left-wing billionaire George Soros and his backing of “progressive’ prosecutors across the country.

Last week, Kass wrote about “an overwhelming sense of lawlessness” in Democrat-run cities, and noted: “[T]hese Democratic cities are also where left-wing billionaire George Soros has spent millions of dollars to help elect liberal social justice warriors as prosecutors. He remakes the justice system in urban America, flying under the radar.”

The Chicago Tribune Guild, the union representing journalists at the paper, wrote a letter to the paper accusing Kass of promoting the “odious, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that billionaire George Soros is a puppet master controlling America’s big cities” and demanded that he, and the newspaper, apologize’

The paper demoted Kass from his position as “lead columnist” on page 2and attempted to justify its actions by saying it was part of an overall reorganization.”

Who said anything about Jews? Anytime anyone criticizes Soros, his paid-off minions shriek “ANTI-SEMITISM!” even when nobody mentioned anything about Soros’ Judaism.

Kass addresses the slanders against him in a column published today:

“My July 22 column was titled “Something grows in the big cities run by Democrats: An overwhelming sense of lawlessness.” It explored the connections between soft-on-crime prosecutors and increases in violence along with the political donations of left-wing billionaire George Soros, who in several states has funded liberal candidates for prosecutor, including Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.

Soros’ influence on these races is undeniable and has been widely reported. But in that column, I did not mention Soros’ ethnicity or religion.

You’d think that before wildly accusing someone of fomenting bigoted conspiracy theories, journalists on the union’s executive board would at least take the time to Google the words “Soros,” “funding” and “local prosecutors.”

As recently as February, the Sun Times pointed out roughly $2 million in Soros money flowing to Foxx in her primary election effort against more law-and-order candidates.”

Kim Foxx, of course, is woman responsible for letting Jussie Smollett off the hook.

“In August 2016, Politico outlined Soros’ money supporting local DA races and included the view from opponents and skeptics that if successful, these candidates would make communities “less safe.”

From the Wall Street Journal in November 2016: “Mr. Soros, a major backer of liberal causes, has contributed at least $3.8 million to political action committees supporting candidates for district attorney in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, Texas and Wisconsin, according to campaign filings.”

The Huffington Post in May 2018 wrote about contributions from Soros and Super PACs to local prosecutor candidates who were less law-and-order than their opponents.

So, it seems that the general attitude in journalism is that super PACs and dark money are bad, unless of course, they’re operated by wealthy billionaires of the left. Then they’re praised and courted.

All of this is against the backdrop of an America divided into camps, between those who think they can freely speak their minds and those who know they can’t.”

Far from backing down, the Great John Kass doubles down. The Mob is used to easy victories, where its victims surrender at the first sign of trouble. Kass not doing that will probably cause the Mob to back-off.

Anytime Soros’ malfeasance gets exposed, he orders his minions to start hurling around the accusations of ANTI-SEMITISM!

Keep fighting the good fight, John Kass. The more vicious they are to you, the more of a threat they perceive you to be.

The worst thing you can do is bow to the mob. I know it’s easier said than done when your job is on the line, but the only way the mob can shame you is if you feel ashamed.

Desperate to silence him, NYTimes prepares to dox Tucker Carlson

This is how afraid the Ruling Elite is of Tucker Carlson:

The New York Times is trying to dox Tucker so that the worst kinds of people know where his wife and children sleep.

They want to bully Tucker into being silent by putting his family in danger.

We are ruled by straight-up gangsters and they don’t even try to hide it anymore.

I always say, though, that their increasing brazenness and thuggery is a byproduct of their increasing desperation and instability.

UPDATE: After Carlson’s segment on this story the NYT was working on, the NYT quickly denied Carlson’s claims. Then, the bluechecks considered the NYT’s denial sufficient proof that Tucker made the claim up out of thin air, and called him a liar who was trying to distract from a (bullshit) lawsuit against several Fox News personalities including Carlson, Hannity and Ed Henry (Henry was fired earlier this month).

According to Hollywood Reporter, the part of the lawsuit that pertains to Tucker: “She says that Carlson once probed to see whether she’d be interested in a sexual relationship.”

Seriously. That’s the extent to which Carlson is mentioned. This is directly from the lawsuit:

Even if this is true (and it’s not, but we’ll get to that in a second), isn’t this a matter of her own judgement that Carlson made a pass at her? Couldn’t Carlson plausibly argue that she interpreted his words all wrong?

And if that situation described above constitutes sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, then men now can’t even try to hit on women without risking a lawsuit. If you can’t even be subtle about it, then men shouldn’t even talk to women anymore. It’s just not worth it with this hair-trigger standard.

Isn’t the point of sexual harassment laws to make women feel safer in the workplace? Because in no way, shape or form is this lawsuit about “safety.” If what the lawsuit against Tucker is alleging constitutes “sexual harassment,” then sexual harassment is no longer about protecting women; it’s about destroying men.

However, it turns out the lawsuit can’t even get its dates right. This thread on Twitter shows the inconsistencies in the lawsuit’s account. The plaintiff alleges that the “incident” with Carlson happened after her last appearance on his show and just before the Fox News employee Christmas party. The problem: the plaintiff’s last appearance on Carlson’s show was December 28th, 2018, a night where Mark Steyn filled-in for Carlson:

Not only that, but the Fox News employee Christmas party was December 10, 2018, as you can see from the date on the tweet above. And the plaintiff (“The Liberal Sherpa”) never appeared on Tucker’s show the night of Dec. 10, 2018:

This allegation against Tucker is complete and utter bullshit. They’re trying to take both him and Hannity down by any means necessary. But mainly Tucker.

And since we already know that Tucker was doxxed in 2018 and had Antifa thugs show up to his house and terrorize his family while he was at work (as he mentions in the video), it makes what he said last night all the more credible.

Add on the fact that the media–including NYT–has been trying to get advertisers to abandon Carlson in order to get him off the air since at least 2018. . .

. . .oh, imagine that: New York Times on June 18, 2020 promoting the narrative that advertisers were (and should be) “fleeing Tucker Carlson.”

The media is the absolute scum of the earth. They are trying to destroy him, and now they’re gaslighting him (and the rest of us) because he caught on to the scheme.

Here’s the real question:
