Chicago Tribune Columnist Brilliantly Defies Cancel Culture After Writing This About George Soros

(Right Country) – Cancel culture is eroding everything that makes American culture great and free.

In the United States, the rights of all Americans to state their views plainly is a sacred, protected right.

Such a right requires the protection of a freedom-loving people who can respond to ideas they don’t like with reason and rhetoric, not with outrage mobs.

Cancel culture is now reaching a fever pitch in the midst of national unrest, hysteria, and heated political battles, and many of those who understand the importance of a free press are fighting back.

Such a one is Chicago Tribune columnist and editor, John Kass, who is boldly defending himself in the face of an attack from the journalists’ union for statements he has made about progressive leftist billionaire and philanthropist George Soros.

Breitbart reports:

Last week, Kass wrote about “an overwhelming sense of lawlessness” in Democrat-run cities, and noted: “[T]hese Democratic cities are also where left-wing billionaire George Soros has spent millions of dollars to help elect liberal social justice warriors as prosecutors. He remakes the justice system in urban America, flying under the radar.”

That statement is entirely accurate.

In 2018, Breitbart News reported that Soros was involved in funding the campaigns of “progressive” district attorneys across the nation. Mainstream media outlets also reported it: the Los Angeles Times noted that Soros was “spending big to help decide who’s your next D.A.,” and that some of the funding was “hidden.”

Soros’s most famous success was Kim Foxx, the controversial Chicago-area prosecutor who infamously dropped the case against actor Jussie Smollett, who faked a hate crime that he blamed on MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters in 2019.

The Chicago Tribune Guild, the union representing journalists at the paper, wrote a letter to the paper accusing Kass of promoting the “odious, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that billionaire George Soros is a puppet master controlling America’s big cities” and demanded that he, and the newspaper, apologize.

Kass was shamefully demoted from a position of “lead columnist” to page 2, justifying this punishment by saying it was part of a general reorganization.

Kass, in response, penned a column where he defiantly refused to apologize and slammed “cancel culture.”

Soros’ influence on these races is undeniable and has been widely reported. But in that column, I did not mention Soros’ ethnicity or religion.

You’d think that before wildly accusing someone of fomenting bigoted conspiracy theories, journalists on the union’s executive board would at least take the time to Google the words “Soros,” “funding” and “local prosecutors.”

I will not apologize for writing about Soros.

I will not bow to those who’ve wrongly defamed me.

I will continue writing my column.

Hear, hear!

We need more brave journalists to stand up to the anti-American, anti-freedom progressive outrage mob.

  1. How can we attack Soros so
    That he feels pressure financially, corporately, personally to reduce
    His impact on USA politics and the legal justice system. Let’s get on the attack!

  2. Mr. Kass, I applaud you for your bravery and your truthfulness. I’ve even written my senators and congressman, asking them to legislate a new law that prohibits individuals with dual citizenships to donate to any political campaign or individual running for office, and to include back-door donations to other PACS that would support one party or the other.
    To date, nobody has responded directly. Maybe they are on Soros’ payroll as well???

    • You should also include wanted fugitives from other countries. Soros is wanted by Hungary, Russia, Thailand, and United Kingdom. He should be wanted by Israel for crimes against his own people for turning over Jews to the Nazis.

    • Soro’s money talks and so silence’s politician’s! What we need to do is have a law that prevents lobbyist’s, that would prevent the ability to influence politician’s into doing what the group the lobbyist represents from influencing politician’s and not what is right for the people of our country! We also must have term limits for Congress, this is not supposed to be a career position! And why are other countries allowed to buy property in our country to build a business? There are so many things the government has done over the years that harm us, so as I said money talks and piss on the peon’s.

  3. I wish there were more journalists with the spine and courage like you do Mr. Kass. I appreciate you and stand behind you. Expose Mr. Soros the way he is -a coward who is hiding in Hungary. Yes he has plenty of money to spend but let’s apply the law and limit his influence.

  4. Mr Kass is 100% Correct about George Soros ! Soros continues to fund, and infect every thing that he can with his Billions ! If there is any organization AGAINST the U.S., you can be sure that George Soros will be involved in it financially. When HE passes on, his son Alexander, will continue to do the DIRTY work, of his father’s
    legacy !

  5. He better keep an eye for the Clinton’s boy that makes bad things happen.
    To that end I respect his guts and strength of character for doing the right thing. A good person and a good American!

  6. I applaud your integrity and your courage in standing up to the hypocrisy and lies. It’s people like you who are the only hope we have of saving this country.

  7. The way people behave, the mob violence, corrupt political machinery is not what made America great. We need more journalist to speak the truth otherwise we’re finished

  8. Thank you for being a true American. Anyone who follows George Soros knows he is promoting socialism. AOC and the squad are only a few of his minions and they profit handsomely from him. They need to be voted out of office as they are enemies of our country.

  9. Soros recently donated $250 Million to BLM and an increase in violent rioting occurred across America . Private citizens and police are being shot at, killed and wounded . Beautiful persons are being deprived of their lives . This Old Marxist continues to live and donate to further the chaos. Justice must be applied to this criminal, George Soros .

  10. Mr. Kass is to be more than commended, he is an example to all columnists who are willing to report the facts regardless of intimidation from those who are only interested in supporting their own agenda. Freedom of speech is being taken from us little by little and before we know it, anyone with contrary views to the radical left, who would speak openly and honestly will be destroyed.

  11. Soros is the biggest Communist Jack Ass in us made his millions first with Stolen GOLD DIAMONDS he STOLE from Jews Homes After he Pointed out the homes to NAZIS then in England he Manipulated British Crown made more Millions He had to run from England when Brits Gov found out Buying hes Visa from another Corrabted Criminal Communist Jew in America he was safe here with millions of stolen dollars he started manipulating other Currency’s China Japan Germany Argentina made more millions then buying out Comp, and investing in Stocks Bonds ther you have it Billionaire Communist this Bastard is VENTED all over the World but with Billions the Communist can buy his Freedom

  12. I applaud Mr. Kass for being honest and forthright, two positive attributes that are sorely missed in journalism today. Any honest person can validate the crimes of George Soros. His young persona worked with his father to confiscate the property of Jewish people in the 40’s and he has become a spoiler of entire nations monetary systems. He has undertaken a role of democracy spoiler and has funded many left wing organizations including Anti-falling. He has funded far left candidates for District Attorney and they have becoming infamous for their failure to prosecute criminals and thieves. Well done Mr. Kass. You need to find a legitimate news organization, if any exist!

  13. Why is he still here send him somewhere that wants him what good he could do with his money if he wasn’t such a sorass that is a communist instead ship him out of here

  14. The unexpected Trump’s electoral victory has made our Democrats, socialists, communists, racists and other components of the Democrat Party totally insane.

  15. I admire your courage and appreciate your accurate description and assessment of Soros. I wish you the best in your work environment.

  16. Keep up the good work there Mr. Kass, You are actually doing your job as a true journalist unlike those around you. Stand strong and don’t be bullied by the name calling pukes of the union. They can’t dispute your claims so that’s why they resorted to name calling. Typical bigoted democrats.

  17. I’ve had the tribune delivered for the past 40 years , and Kass is the only reason I still continue , been considering skipping days without his part, and will certainly cancel when he leaves . Seldom can I get interest in their far leaning writers in remainder of paper.

    • Right on – Kass is the only reason we keep subscribing . My husband & I have a subscription for 58 years & my parents for years before. Col McCormick is turning in his grave to see what a rag The Tribune has become.

  18. Mr. Kass represents a true journalist who reported the TRUTH about Soros-not a bunch of fake news BS that the media trowels out today. This is what we need more of today-someone who is willing to report the facts instead of a pile of anti-American/anti-Trump crap to promote their left wing agenda. It’s good to know that there are still some real journalists who have the balls and morals to stand up and tell you the real story !
