Philanthropist George Soros

In August of 2016, an obscene graphic has been making its rounds on the internet. The graphic features George Soros and the following quote, “I’m going to bring down the United States by funding Black Hate groups. We’ll put them into a mental trap and make them blame white people. The Black community is the easiest to manipulate.” It has been rumored that this quote came from an interview with Germany’s BILD in 2014.

But there is currently no evidence of this interview ever taking place. The quote first popped up on August 19, 2016, on ‘Overpasses for America’ which is a Tumblr page. This is nearly two years after Soros supposedly said this. It is also very unlikely that successful capitalists would want to dismantle the nation that has the largest economy on Biography.

Fake quotes and false source information work together to make them appear to be legitimate. George Soros is not the first person that this has happened too.
