Did Jewish billionaire George Soros intentionally crash the U.S. markets in 2008 in order to help Barack Obama win the presidential election?

One right wing talk radio host seems to think so.

Sandy Rios told her listeners on American Family Radio Wednesday that Soros may have his “fingerprints” on the financial meltdown.

“He manipulates, and some people … believe that,” Rios said. “I can’t confirm this — but some people believe that George Soros’ fingerprints were on that 2008 stock market bottom-fell-out-of-everything crash that really probably paved the way for Barack Obama to become president,” Rios said.

Rios described Soros as a “Jewish atheist” and accused him of being an “enemy of the faith.”

“The world is filled with George Soros, and not with his money, but that’s why communism, too, has such a root and has still survived after so many decades,” Rios added.
