The Anti-Defamation League has condemned Glenn Beck for his recent attacks on liberal billionaire George Soros. In particular, the ADL condemned Beck's comments about Soros' actions and experiences during the Holocaust, saying that they were "offensive" and "horrific."
For years, Beck has portrayed Soros as the key figure at the center of a widespread web of powerful left-wing organizations and individuals seeking to fundamentally alter American society and the world. These accusations came to a head this week, when Beck devoted two straight days of programming to a series of episodes revolving around Soros entitled "The Puppet Master."
Steph is a sweetheart, isn't she? Always so gracious and kind. . .
The hate comes from the fact that he is a wealthy man who is a philanthropist and donates to social causes, as well as to Democratic candidates. They can't stand anyone who donates to Democrats.
The criticism comes from those who like to label all Liberals as "Socialists", and generally hate anyone who would dare disagree with their points of view. Notice that those here who call Soros a Socialist are the ones who see all things Democratic as bad, are quick to call Liberals names, and generally see all things Conservative as "good". They live a very comic book sort existence--everything is either good or evil. There are no shades of grey with this point of view.
