Where does all the lies and hte come from about George Soros?

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.

  • Of course, look at the links she used. San Fransisco is about as far left as can be and Huffpo gets money from Soros.

    What He said about his behavior during the holocaust came from Soros own lips.

  • George Soros is everything Glenn Beck claims and more. Beck uses quotes taken from books that Soros has written. He has a God complex of the first order and even a cursory, independent look through Google and Bing search engines will confirm what Beck says of this evil, vile and pathetic excuse of a human being. His supporters cannot show you even one mistake about Soros that Beck has shown on his show. Go to http://www.theblaze.com and read for yourself and then do your own independent study of what he says. Thank heaven for people like Beck for throwing sunshine on this lunatic's assault on our freedoms. His philanthropy is entirely directed at establishing his one world order. His donations are always directed towards that end. He is the 5th wealthiest hedge fund manager and he is intent on collapsing our dollar as he did in England. Massive inflation will follow. Do not remain ignorant of George Soros.

  • Oh yeah, that Soros is a "peach!" He is quite vocal about destroying capitalism (having made his money), and wholeheartedly supports more regulation and government intervention in the free market. Policies that increase state power and lessens individual power are hallmarks of Soros.

    * Soros helped finance the Czech Republic's 1989 "Velvet Revolution." He orchestrated coups in Croatia, Georgia, Slovakia, and Yugoslavia. He brought the financial systems of the UK and Malaysia to their knees.

    * Through his charity, the Open Society Institute, Soros funds ACORN, the Center for American Progress ($1.8MM), Center on Budget and Policy Priorities ($3.7MM), Economic Policy Institute ($3MM), Institute for America's Future ($1MM), and the Center for Policy Alternatives ($1.4MM), the Tides Foundation which distributes grants to anti-American groups ($20.8MM).

  • Just look at all of the "characters" who are in cohoots with Soros...

    Barack Obama and the 83 members of Congress who proudly subscribe to the Progressive Movement
    Andy Stern (SEIU President)
    John Podesta (Center for American Progress)
    Alexandra Visher (Democracy Alliance)
    Joseph Stiglitz (Socialist International)
    Peter Lewis (Progressive Insurance Co)
    Mark Ritchie (MN ACORN)
    Heather Booth, a Saul Alinsky disciple who co-founded the Midwest Academy, a radical ACORN clone that breeds Marxist agitators.
    Debra Bowen (CA ACORN)
    James Rucker (MoveOn.org & co-founder of Color of Change, a race-baiting left-wing hate group.)

    Just do a little research on Soros' "Secretary of State Project" and see what you can find! Then tell me he's some poor Holocaust survivor just trying to make a living!! :o)

  • Oooh Ooh Oooh... I've been wondering when we'd see a convo going about Spooky Dude.

    George Soros = left
    Puffington Post = Left

    If Fox News posted a glowing review of GWB and how wonderful he is, all you libs would be screaming bias and giving us hell. Therefore, I refuse to take anything a left leaning blog and sort of news source says about one of the farthest left leaning men in the world.

    George Soros is not the rainbow and unicorn happy guy. He is serious evil,and I don't need Glenn Beck to tell me that. I did a wikipedia search, and wikipedia is just as left leaning as puffington, and was able to glean that you don't want to mess with the Spooky Dude.
