Glenn Beck Accuses George Soros Of “Helping Send The Jews To The Death Camps”
Mediaite ^ | 11/11/10 | Hillary Busis

Posted on 11/11/2010 6:27:00 PM PST by Nachum

What’s with all the recent inappropriate Nazi comparisons? On Tuesday, liberal radio host Mike Malloy likened George W. Bush to Hitler. Now, Glenn Beck has drawn the ire of the Anti-Defamation League by claiming that Jewish billionaire George Soros played a role in the Holocaust.

On his radio show yesterday, Beck gave his listeners a history lesson about Soros, who was born György Schwartz in Hungary in 1930. According to Beck, Soros’s father “is a guy who spoke Esperanza fluently—Esperanza was developed in the 1880s as the world’s first international language.” (He’s mistaken about the name of that language; it’s Esperanto, not Esperanza, which is Spanish for “hope.”)

Beck implied that there was something sinister about “Esperanza:” “It was the language of peace, like the U.N. is the house of peace. And it was developed so that everyone could speak the same language, and no one would have to come by their old, tribal language,” he said sarcastically. “We’d all have a new language.” He goes on to say that the Soviets, the Chinese, and Hitler himself all considered embracing Esperanto before discarding it upon finding that its proponents “were dangerous. They’re dangerous to everyone.” That’s right: even Hitler didn’t want to mess with the guys who spoke a made-up auxiliary language.

If Glenn Beck stated this, he must have had adequate evidence. Never knew him to fabricate information.

Soros has admitted it.

Tonight Beck said he forgives the young boy who did what he had to do to survive but can’t forgive the 80 year old man who feels no remorse.

1) soros is a self admitted atheist... he changed his name from Schwartz to soros... he hates Jews and he hates Israel... he has stated in his own words that he feels that he is god.

2) soros admits in his own words, that he did help to ID Jews so that his nazi father could arrange for them to ultimately be arrested

3) soros was 14 at the time... and admitted that this period was the best time of his life.

4) Beck confirmed everything he accused soros of being and doing and he used soros’s own words in audio and video to prove it. Beck is 100% correct and this arsehole author is on the payroll of soros and his one world order.

From 60 Minutes Interview of George Soros:

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. That's right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that's–that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

Mr. SOROS: Not–not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don't–you don't see the connection. But it was–it created no–no problem at all.

KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

Mr. SOROS: No.

Esperanto is derived from the longer name "Doktoro Esperanto" or Dr. Hopeful, roughly the same word as Esperanza.

It's always good to look these things up before running off at the mouth.

Frankly, it's a failed language ~ the designers presumed that prefixes and suffixes to control grammar was the superior method.

They had little understanding or appreciation of Chinese and English, and now it's too late. Bill Gates has even begun to combine English with a written language in the style of Chinese written language.

Bwahahahahaha!

As Beck said on his TV show today, do you really think he would say this without the lawyers vetting the information first? Beck knows the Soros Left is using every possible means to shut him up.

Glenn Beck is accusing Soros of something Soros himself has admitted to. Soros might not have been firing up the ovens, but he was a participant all the same.

A 14 year old teen, particularly in war-time, is hardly a child...as they were forced to grow up way too early. So to me, though I’m not a great fan of Beck, I think he has a point. Beck’s caveat too, that, “I am certainly not saying George Soros enjoyed that, even had a choice—I mean, he’s 14 years old. He was surviving. So I’m not making a judgment, that’s between him and God.” is honest.

When I first heard this about Soros (and NOT from Glen Beck) I wondered the same thing too, that yes, if I had participated in something overtly NOT good like this, I would feel guilt about it—even for things done as a 14 year old. Soros has, from what I’ve read, expressed no remorse for this time of his life.

It should be remembered too, in Jewish Tradition the age of accountability is 12....why one’s Bar Mitzvah is then. Of course Soros is not a practicing Jew, that I know of—and I don’t wonder why.

Soros is guilty. Screw the ADL!!!

Soros Helped The Nazis During Holocaust

"..When the Nazis occupied Budapest in 1944, George Soros' father was a successful lawyer. He lived on an island in the Danube and liked to commute to work in a rowboat. But knowing there were problems ahead for the Jews, he decided to split his family up. He bought them forged papers and he bribed a government official to take 14-year-old George Soros in and swear that he was his Christian godson. But survival carried a heavy price tag. While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews...."

All this stuff about Esperanto that this guy drags in is really beside the point. It’s perfectly true that Soros cooperated with the Nazis in sending fellow Jews to the death camps.

He admitted it, and even said that 1944 was the happiest year of his life. He doesn’t regret it one bit.

If Beck got Esperanto/Esperanza wrong, so what? That’s a side issue.

Beck did. Soros, even though Jewish, helped confiscate the belongings of the Jews before they headed off to the camps. It’s actually a well known fact. Beck didn’t break any new ground here.

George Soros himself, in an interview not too long ago said he had no regrets about what he did. He’s a heartless bas***d, who’s deliberately created the same kind of chaos all over the planet as the Nazi’s did...where’s the defamation?

Why do people have such a hard time listening to the facts?

I know bill clinton does not believe in GOD, because of his actions and how he only appeared to believe in GOD when it meant his only hope to retain power. I have the video here of his laughing and joking, coming out of Church after Ron Brown's funeral... until he saw a camera... then he raised his Bible so that it was centered in the lens and he started crying... and I remember jesse jackson and 'toon... both on their knees in the oval orifice... praying for salvation. You think jesse believes in anything other than race pimpin’?

"Well, of course I c--I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn't be there, because that was--well, actually, in a funny way, it's just like in markets--that if I weren't there--of course, I wasn't doing it, but somebody else would--would--would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the--whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the--I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt."

“forgives the young boy who did what he had to do to survive”

You know, Beck’s better than I. Forgiving that kind of error and evil in childhood would lead me to an entirely different place. My people, my family, all that’s dear......and coming face-to-face with someone who helped in destruction and death.......nope. Not gonna happen.

While I, too, may disagree with many of Soros’ views and analysis on the issues, to bring in this kind of innuendo about his past is unacceptable. To hold a young boy responsible for what was going on around him during the Holocaust as part of a larger effort to denigrate the man is repugnant.

Unless Beck fabricated that clip of an interview with Soros I don't see where he was wrong. Soros in his own words said 1944 was a happy time in his life. Beck clearly stated that he makes no judgment on what Soros was being forced to do at the age of 14, what he took issue with was that Soros had no remorse for taking the property of fellow Jews and looked upon it as a good experience. One thing about Beck, he researches before he speaks, and if he makes a mistake he corrects it. You don't criticize a man like Soros unless you have facts on your side.

Not only did George Soros personally sign the orders to ship his Jewish parents to the ovens, he joined the Hitler Youth and loved bayonetting Jewish infants for fun. Furthermore, he said this was his favorite activity and time ever.

He even does all this today, in his apartment.

Beck didn’t accuse him of anything. His early history is well known. Beck repeated again and again that he didn’t and couldn’t judge him for what he did as a fourteen year old to survive, or what his family did to keep him alive.

So the premise of the article is false. Which means the writer is dishonest from word one. I’m getting used to it. I’m surprised anymore when writers are actually honest.

Its always funny to listen to attacks on Beck, when he mostly just plays the video, and lets people say what they have to say in their own words. He doesn’t say these things about people; they do. Beck doesn’t say who and what Soros is, he lets Soros speak for himself.

I watched the show. I thought Glenn Beck mentioned how Soros ripped off the property of his fellow Hungarian Jews deported to Auschwitz (which was true).

I'd be careful of the Media Matters crap spread around. Will the idiots at the Anti Defamation League parrot the George Soros line that Beck is an anti-Semite?

As Glen said, let the two of the walk in Jerusalem and see who gets the more friendly reception.

I’m no fan of Soros. In fact, I can’t think of one redeeming thing about him.

But Soros saw, and experienced, things as a child - as a child! - that Beck could not imagine in his worst nightmares.

Beck said he cannot judge Soros for that part of his life, but that’s being disingenuous. By presenting the facts, Beck is accusing. But in this case I believe that Beck is not qualified prosecute, or to sit on the jury.

This is not the case of a 14-year-old who was an accessory to a murder. This is the case of a 14-year-old thrown into a continuous hell-on-earth.

The nearest analogy I can think of, and it’s very imperfect, is that of a combat infantryman in a brutal, drawn-out battle. His actions should really only by judged by others who have been in such a combat.

There is plenty wrong with Soros, as others have said. Attack him on that. Leave the unguided, confused, and frightened 14-year-old be.

I don't know how you would tell Soros' biography and not mention that part of the story.

I think everyone who hears the story knows that they have to factor in the times, the circumstances, and the age of the kid himself.

We can factor those things in and I assume Beck can too. And you can too and no doubt do.

“What’s with all the recent inappropriate Nazi comparisons?”

Recent? Was this article written by Rip Van Winkle.

By the way, though the Nazi comparison has been overused to the point of absurdity, and is the crutch of lazy people, there is a false comparison here. Unlike Bush, Soros was actually around for the holocaust, and whether or not Beck is hyperbolizing (he almost undoubtedly is), Soros could have possibly had an actual role in it.
