Some troll lied and said that billionaire philanthropist George Soros bragged about funding hate groups, such as Black Lives Matter, in order to, as they claimed, “bring down the United States. The lie was further compounded with a supposed statement by Soros, referring to African-American communities as being easily manipulated. This claim is categorically false, of course. It is just more of this unusually virulent Presidential campaign, which Soros has funded in several ways.
The original reference given as alleged evidence was supposed to be an article that featured an in-person interview with Soros. The article said to be in Bild, a newspaper in Germany, in September of 2014. No such article even exists, so everything else this lier said is also completely fabricated. In fact, not one shred of evidence has ever been found in any official publication to support this libelous attack on George Soros. The story was linked to online trolls who falsely claimed to have read about it, somewhere. There was never any link found to any actual evidence.

Besides all of this, there is absolutely no motivation for Soros to bite the hand that feeds him so very handsomely. He has many criticisms for the U.S.A. However, if he wanted out, at a net worth of over $30 billion USD, he can certainly live wherever he wants. These malicious trolls on investopedia.com provide seemingly real references to con the viewers into believing it is legitimate. It is the same slimy tactic played recently on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Quotes were attributed to both of these Presidential candidates without any real proof that these quotes were actually true.
George Soros was originally born in Hungary, way back in 1930. He struggled since he was a teenager, resisting the Nazi occupation of his country during World War II. He was able to escape a few years after Hungary was captured by the U.S.S.R. The Cold War was secretly raging at the time. He defected to the West, attending the famous London School of Economics and graduating with a degree in business. He founded the Open Society Foundations (OSF) to promote democracy and basic human rights around the world. Read more about this Harsh Lie about Soros on NY Times.com.
