PBS Commentator Bill Moyers: George Soros Has Been the ‘Victim’ of Glenn Beck and Fox News ‘Assassins’

Longtime PBS news commentatorBill Moyers said Friday that billionaire George Soros has "been the victim, of course, of Glenn Beck and the right-wing, the Fox News assassins."

Moyers made his comments in a discussion with Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, during which he praised Soros, whom Moyers also said is "deeply troubled by the Orwellian power of the right-wing in this country today."


Transcript below, via Newsbusters:

BILL MOYERS: I’ll tell you somebody you could, you should go for, because he has given more thought to this than almost anyone I know: George Soros, believe it or not. George Soros, whatever you think about his wealth or his politics, George Soros was next to Vaclav Havel I think the most catalytic agent for helping to bring down the Communist government behind the Iron Curtain because he, he gave everybody who wanted one an equivalent of a Xerox machine, and so they could get the message out.

And he is deeply troubled by the Orwellian power of the right-wing in this country today. He talks about it. I was on his board for a several years, and I’m off now that I’m back on the air, but I was on his board, and he is deeply troubled. He is a great devotee of the open society, the society that does change because it listens to itself, and learns from its experience.

He's been the victim, of course, of Glenn Beck and the right-wing, the Fox News assassins. So he's thought a great deal about the Orwellian idea, and he said it has arrived in this country. It is here, part of the permanent, a permanent characteristic of American democracy which is therefore self-suicidally bent because of the power and force of propaganda. He’d be somebody I know would write you a really good piece for that.

This should be entertaining. 

There are women in here who cream themselves in vile hatred everytime the letters s and o and r and o and s are run together like that.

I'll just sum it up: PBS is evil liberal scum who run socialist training camps.

And HuffPo? Well Huffpo could tell them that Jesus had risen and they'd all forsake their savior and burn in hell afore they'd listen to even more evil liberal socialist HuffPo.

I have to agree with Mr. Moyers for the most part. Beck is short on truth and long on emotional fire that gets people are ferclumped and believing.

 I wouldn't listen to anything a George Soros supporter has to say.  The guy wants us to be subservient to other nations, and he has WAY too much power in this country.  He is about as extreme leftist as a person can get.

Sorry, but there's no such thing as a George Soros "supporter."  He's not running for office.  He holds no office.  He is a rich guy who gives lots of money to causes he likes.  He has no "power" other than that afforded him by his vast wealth.  The fact that you don't know that is part of the problem.

Ten years ago or so, the left used Richard Mellon Scaife to scare everyone into line.  This is the same technique in reverse.

*falls over laughing*

Have you actually listened to his views on the free market?

Measuring Systemic Risk To Empower the Taxpayer

or did you mean he's socially left-wing, rather than economically left-wing ?

Why do these two even care what Beck or anyone says against them?  There are no winners in fighting arrogance vs. arrogance, only whiners.  If they are so against what Beck says about them they should sit back and laugh if what Beck is saying is indeed completely false.  Do they expect everyone to like them and support their beliefs?  If so, they have a bigger issue than Beck's verbal punishment towards them.

 This is ridiculous.  You don't have to be running for something to have people support you and your ideas.  He has a LOT of power, and a lot of people behind him.  The fact that YOU don't know this shows your level of ignorance regarding George Soros.  He's behind the scenes in a lot of things that are not good for this country.
