DISINFO: Soros' office is involved in active transgender propaganda


One of the dangers coming from the Open Society Foundations office is active transgender propaganda. The Soros’ office is doing serious work to preach “gender equality” to children from an early age. After that children may question their sex at adulthood.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives portraying George Soros and his foundation as a villainous and bent on destroying Armenia and other countries, threatening national values. Read similar cases claiming that Soros foundation is organising clashes in Armenia and serving foreign agendas aimed at the collapse of Armenian statehood. Soros has been accused (without evidence) of a wide range of sins: destabilising Europe, organising colour revolutions, attacking churches and traditional values as well as sponsoring the film "Joker" as a tutorial for colour revolutions. Read more about how pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets target George Soros.

The talk about active transgender propaganda began after the speech of a transgender woman in the Armenian parliament. She drew attention on violence and hate targeting LGBT people in Armenia. Since then, she has faced fierce verbal attacks, demonstrations and death threats.Armenian MPs call for the trans activist to be burned alive. The reaction of the EU and other international organisations is being used to promote an idea that the West is threatening Armenian national values.

Read similar cases claiming that the West exports perversity, the Western embassies expose same-sex marriages and that the West and its allies are lobbying for perversion.
