Department of Memes recently reported on a viral White House petition to declare George Soros a terrorist and seize all of his related organizations’ assets under RICO and NDAA law.
When we first discovered this petition, it had some 40,000 signatures. After a couple days of promotion by various e-celebs and meme pages, the petition eclipsed the benchmark of 100,000 signatures needed to merit an official White House response early Saturday morning.
The stated goal of the petition is as follows:
“Whereas George Soros has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition against the United States and its citizens, has created and funded dozens (and probably hundreds) of discrete organizations whose sole purpose is to apply Alinsky model terrorist tactics to facilitate the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United State, and has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government, the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic terrorists, and have all of his personal an[d] organizational wealth and assets seized under Civil Asset Forfeiture law.”
This could be a major game-changer in American politics in the months ahead, as Soros has recently come under heavy fire from conservative media after being linked to multiple groups of violent, paid anarcho-communist agitators.
The petition about Soros surfaces after a petition to name the radical Alt-Left organization Antifa a terrorist organization gained over 330,000 signatures in one month, perhaps causing the Trump administration to refer to Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization in leaked documents.
There was another petition currently trending on the White House website with nearly 60,000 signatures that sought to secure an international arrest warrant for Soros, but this petition has been archived and is now unable to be signed.
White House petitions must receive an official statement from the administration if they receive over 100,000 signatures. Petitions have one month from their creation to gain signatures.
