Billionaire globalist George Soros has called on the European Union to regulate social media and search engines, claiming that users “minds are being manipulated.
“The infamous open-borders activist has demanded that the EU introduces tougher censorship for sites such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter.
Soros branded the companies a “public menace” due to their size and argued they had tricked people into electing Donald Trump as president and led them to vote against globalist causes, in an article for The Guardian published Thursday.
Breitbart reports: The speculator, who runs one of the largest campaigning groups in the world and is noted for his interference in foreign politics and elections, said ultimately unregulated social media threatened democracy and the “integrity of elections”.
New media websites and populist groups have been prolific on social media, using the platforms to surpass mainstream media and promote causes Mr. Soros and his allies oppose.
Mr. Soros has a cozy relationship with the EU’s unelected leaders, meeting with them 11 times since the Brexit vote. Prime Minister Theresa May, in contrast, has had just three meetings in that period.
Just over a week ago, it was revealed Mr. Soros had quietly pumped half a million pounds into groups trying to block Brexit and overthrow the Tory government.
In the Guardian article, he wrote that social media can “influence how people think and behave without them even being aware of it” and “this interferes with the functioning of democracy and the integrity of elections”.
