George Soros compares Ukrainians to German Nazis under Soviet siege
The billionaire regime-change plotter's tweets backfire.
The US-Hungarian billionaire, notorious for his Open Society Foundations which have funded color revolutions through billions of dollars, hails the Ukrainian army in a tweet on Twitter, drawing parallels between the situation today and the siege of Budapest in 1944.
This sparked uproar among pro-Ukrainian Twitter users.
The siege of Budapest - that Soros is referring to - saw theSoviet Red Army surround German Nazis who occupied Hungary in 1944 after the pro-Hitler government collapsed at the time, followed by a heated confrontation.
At the time, Soros was 14-years-old living in Budapest when he saw the Soviet military operation unfold. He was able to survive the Nazi takeover because his father purchased documents that he and his family were Christians. At the time, more than 500,000 Hungarian Jews were sent to death camps.
While some hailed Soros as a champion of democracy, others cringed at the comparison, which compared Ukrainians to the Nazis under siege.
One user wrote, "You do realize that the ‘siege of Budapest in 1944’ is a siege of Nazi-occupied Budapest by the Soviet Army? So you basically equated Ukrainians to Nazis. Great job."
Another said, “You put Ukrainians in the same pot with Nazis ’44 and Muslim fundamentalists ’93?! LoL dude!!"
A third user posted a picture of the Azov regiment, which is an openly neo-Nazi faction serving with the Ukrainian national guard, and captioned it "These 'brave'?"
Other people, though, were not having it from Soros, whose foundation is known to decapitate sovereign governments, and assassinate economies.
“Maybe you should go short some currencies and break people’s lives apart, become rich and then try to destroy everything good about America – oh wait, you did that already,” someone wrote.
“Mr. Soros you sound very happy Ukraine and its people are being destroyed. Why?” another person wrote.
Open Society Foundations have been active in Ukraine since 1990, and have spent over $100 million on promoting Western-style capitalism, values, education and "democracy."
In 2014, Soros boasted that Open Society played an integral role in the success of the February 2014 Maidan CIA-backed coup, which saw the ousting of a socialist ruler
However, Soros' organization is not the only one paying some regime change bills.

In 2015, a hack revealed information that Soros planned to capitalize on the 2014 coup in Ukraine to overthrow the Russian government.
