Pastor Sean Vaughan accused investor and philanthropist George Soros of creating divisions in South Africa during the country’s apartheid era.
In the live YouTube event on April 1 (this event has been removed from the platform but can still be watched on Rumble), the right-wing pastor expressed his argument against Soros under the heading “Soros’s Magic”. The video includes a note at the beginning about removing it from YouTube and relocating it to Rumble to “avoid censorship FREE SPEECH.”
Vaughan first described what he said that South Africa was a colony under the control of the British monarchy at the time.
Vaughan said: “South Africa is a beautiful country.”
Soros’ philanthropy started in South Africa in 1979. According to the Open Society Foundations (Open Society Foundations), Soros (Soros) was established to support his philanthropy around the world, his first charitable donation came from the University of Cape Town scholarship for black students.
In his video, Vaughn cited quotes that still exist on the Open Society Foundation website. When talking about South Africa, Soros specifically described it as “a closed society with all the institutions of a first world country, but due to ethnic reasons, they are not open to the majority of the population.”
Soros added: “Where can I find a better opportunity to open up a closed society?”
This is the second sentence Vaughan quoted in the video.
Vaughan said: “He brought the money to South Africa, and provided scholarships to the apartheid black youth in South Africa, and funded this university. When he opened this school, he changed South Africa. See where he is. What it did.”
Vaughan went on to say that Soros’ actions led to division and violence in South Africa.
“He separated South Africa from this open society, eliminated the culture, eliminated the law, eliminated the foundations of society, made races against each other, and then you occupied the country and now you have created an open society.”
The apartheid era in South Africa began in the mid-1900s and lasted until the early 1990s. About 15 years after Soros started his charity work here, South Africa held its first full democratic elections in 1994.
According to the Open Society Foundation, although Soros started working as a philanthropist in South Africa, his efforts have expanded to more than 120 countries around the world since decades.
