George Soros, 86-year-old multibillionaire hedge fund-operator, is famous around the world for promoting far-left causes. Or, as his website puts it, he is "a prominent international supporter of democratic ideals and causes for more than 30 years." His "philanthropic organization, the Open Society Foundations (OSF), supports democracy and human rights in more than 100 countries."

Raphael's Dignity article is 24 pages of careful research with eight pages of references. For instance, she reports that in 2015, OSF...
