Rabbis protest Fox host's use of Holocaust imagery (Mega Barf!)
Yahoo! News ^ | January 26, 2011 | Reuters

Posted on 01/26/2011 7:38:29 PM PST by DBeers

CHICAGO (Reuters) – Four hundred rabbis will publish a letter on Thursday calling on Fox News to sanction host Glenn Beck for repeated use of Nazi and Holocaust imagery and for airing attacks on World War Two survivor George Soros.

In an open letter to Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of News Corp, which owns Fox, the rabbis also demand an apology from Fox News chief Roger Ailes for characterizing Beck's Jewish critics as nothing more than "left-wing rabbis."

The letter will appear as an advertisement in the News Corp-owned Wall Street Journal on Thursday for which the rabbis spent more than $100,000, a spokesman said.

"We haven't seen the ad," said Joel Cheatwood, Fox News senior vice president of development, "but this group is a George Soros backed left-wing political organization that has been trying to engage Glenn Beck primarily for publicity purposes."

Is this the "Jewish" ACORN?

Creating a Just, Fair, and Compassionate America

-what they are REALLY doing:

DiscoverTheNetworks.org: Jewish Funds for Justice | JFSJ

Jewish Funds for Justice (JFSJ) was established in 2006, when its legacy organizations -- the Shefa Fund, the Jewish Fund for Justice, and Spark: Partnership for Service -- merged to form JFSJ. With offices in New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Los Angeles, JFSJ's mission is to “mobilize the resources of American Jewry to combat the root causes of domestic economic and social injustice.” By JFSJ's reckoning, chief among those root causes are the inherently negative by-products of capitalism – most notably racism and “gross economic inequality.” Rabbi Mordechai Liebling, JFSJ's Vice President of Programs, contends that “the concentration of wealth harms a society” and must be counter-balanced by “mechanisms for wealth redistribution.” Toward that end, JFSJ seeks to “bring about social change” by making grants to grassroots organizations – Jewish and non-Jewish alike – that “support economic development in marginalized neighborhoods.”

I understand the hurt of Jews but to take the Holocaust in its entirety unto themselves is to deny the tragedy of the Jehovah Witnesses, the gypsies, the homosexuals, the infirm and God knows what other ethnic peoples that were murdered during that time.

Looks like they are available for hire for the right price.

Wonder how much George Soros had to pay for their services?

How many hear know THIS about Soros: http://thehive.modbee.com/node/15129

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.

KROFT: For example that, 'I'm Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.' None of that?
Mr. SOROS: 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.

Glenn has gone out of his way to say that he can forgive George Soros the child but can’t forgive the 80 year old man who feels no remorse for it.

This is appalling: left wing Rabbis defending a self-confessed Nazi collaborator. Are they saying Soros is above criticism? Or are they claiming that left wing Jews—or Jews bought by Soros—”own” the WW2 narrative? What nerve these people have!

They want to make this about Jews as a means of distracting from what Beck is saying. After all he says the same of Van Jones, Obama, Arne Duncan, William Ayers, Bernadine Dorhn, Geoffry Jones......

I think these “Rabbis” expose more about themselves than they know and they may want to think about where this is going and what kind of world they want to live in.

I have never heard someone deny the tragedy of those groups. Do you have a source please?

Fair warning to the Rabbis, Glenn will be beating up on another innocent Jewish man on Friday. (Edward Bernays)

"Goebbels was using my book Crystallizing Public Opinion as a basis for his destructive campaign against the Jews of Germany. This shocked me."

-Edward Bernays, Biography of an Idea: Memoirs of Public Relations Counsel (1965)

For what its worth, Bernays never renounced his propaganda methods, he simply rebranded them.

hm... so, we are now to only talk about the Holocaust as it applies to Jews? Are we now not allowed to see or to discuss images or at all to refer to historical photographs that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt the atrocities man has visited on fellow man, Jewish or otherwise?

Jews weren’t the only ones annihilated in the Totenkopf-created Hells; perhaps the rabbis should remind themselves of the virtue of Humility.

George Soros helped turn in Jews to be slaughtered. The Jewish funds for Justice helps rally the world against Israel, to divest from them, and to support radical Muslim organizations bent on a Second Holocaust. Glenn Beck is a pro-Israel patriot, who has an actual observant rabbi, Daniel Lapin, as a principal adviser who also regularly instructs Beck in Bible study in Hebrew. Who are the real anti-Semites here? Duh.

It’s not that they want to forget the Holocaust, but more importantly they don’t want to share their very profitable franchise, nor allow acknowlegement any of other holocausts of recent history.

George Soros was only a survivor because he was selling out his own people for profit.

These are not real Jews or rabbis. They are JINOs: Jews-In-Name-Only. They are part of Reform, or as many of us call it, Deformed "Judiasm". They preach Marx over Moses, and Socialism over the Sabbath. They typically denounce Israel as an evil "occupier", and sympathize with the murderers of Israeli Jews.

As awful as that is and no matter how much i hate this guy i dont understand why people complain about this particular interview. What did you want him to do? His father was able to save him by posing as the adopted son of someone else. Was he supposed to, as a child, go up to the nazis and say “ excuse me im jewish i should be with those people there”. Its absolutely ridiculous, if i had a child and was in this predicament i would tell him to lie at all costs to save his life. Apparently he could have taken on the nazis according to some here. Attack the guy for the evil bastard that he is, not try to spin some stuff about world war 2 when he was a child trying to survive the holocaust.

I see that old Bolshevik habits die hard. Scratch one and they still bleed, 'commie'. And. Trying to use the same old smear tactics that worked in the 50's that shut down the HUAC hearings pdq by screaming, 'Antisemitic witch-hunt'.

But somehow I don't think Roger Ailes or Murdoch will fall for this strawman like Congress did.

You betcha.
Everyone forgets, or doesn't know, about the NAZIS round up of all religions including Catholic Priests and Nuns.

Buy not me. When I was a kid one of our Parish Priests, Father 'Tony', survived the Camps. I think he was Polish but even in our 'mostly' Irish parish, he was every kid's favorite Priest.

(I think the Monsignor was a little jealous)

Not to downplay the suffering of the Jews, but you make an excellent point. Hitler’s regime murdered 12 million people in the Holocaust. Half (6 million) were Jews. They’ve been the focus ever since because they’re the largest group.

I’m saying. When you look at the Nazi regime’s policy towards ‘untermenchen’ you’ll see they killed those people as well as Jews. Read the history of Nazi extermination. They’re plenty out there. Oh, and I forgot to mention Polish Catholic priests in the group. The JINO’s hijacked the Holocaust for their own agenda.
