Skip to comments.Glenn Beck's Remarks About Soros And The Holocaust 'Offensive And Over The Top'
Posted on 11/11/2010 8:54:40 PM PST by Pope Pius XII
New York, NY, November 11, 2010 The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today criticized as "completely inappropriate and offensive" remarks by Glenn Beck on his radio and television programs, in which he inaccurately connected George Soros, who was then a young boy, to the actions of others in sending Jews to death camps during the Holocaust.
On his November 10 radio show, Beck described how Soros, who was born in Hungary to Orthodox Jewish parents, "used to go around with this anti-Semite and deliver papers to the Jews and confiscate their property and then ship them off. And George Soros was part of it. He would help confiscate the stuff. It was frightening. Here's a Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps."

It’s only offensive if it is a lie. Is Beck’s description true?
“Mr. SOROS: Well, of course I cI 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 waswell, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in marketsthat if I weren’t thereof course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else wouldwouldwould be taking it away anyhow. And it was thewhether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So theI had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.
Of course most of us here are already aware of Mr. Soros’ highly questionable actions during the Nazi occupation. (Though the public at large undoubtedly has a different perspective, if they know anything about his earlier days at all.)
But the statements he made in this interview to my mind are quite chilling. He forgives himself everything. He says that if he hadn’t done it somebody else would have.
All of which would seem to indicate that Mr. Soros has no conscience. A lack of conscience is said to be a common symptom of sociopaths.”
First he worked for the Judenrat. That was the Jewish council set up by the Nazis to do their dirty work for them. Instead of the Nazis rounding up Jews every day for the trains, they delegated that murderous task to Jews who were willing to do it to survive another day at the expense of their neighbours.
Theodore hatched a better plan for his son. He bribed a non-Jewish official at the agriculture ministry to let George live with him. George helped the official confiscate property from Jews.
By collaborating with the Nazis, George survived the Holocaust. He turned on other Jews to spare himself.
George moved to London after the war and then to New York, where he became a stockbroker. Hes rich now. Forbes magazine says hes the 35th richest man in the world. Maybe youve heard of him. He goes by the name his father invented: George Soros.
How does Soros feel about what he did as a teenager? Has it kept him up at night?
Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes asked him that. Was it difficult? Not at all, Soros answered.
No feeling of guilt? asked Kroft. No, said Soros. There was no sense that I shouldnt be there. If I wasnt doing it, somebody else would be taking it away anyhow. Whether I was there or not. So I had no sense of guilt.
A Nazi would steal the Jews property anyways. So why not him?
The ADL is offensive.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director and a Holocaust survivor could not be more wrong if he tried.
Obviously, he didn’t want to report the truth about Glenn’s documented program today or the truth about the sociopathic monster, George Soros.
I wonder why?
On his TV show he has used numerous video clips of Soros' own words documenting everything. Perhaps someone at the ADL could take the time to actually know what the hell they are talking about? I don't hold my breath!
The ADL seems to have become the very caricature of self-haters.
Abe Foxman is defending a Jew who worked for the Nazis? That doesn’t really surprise me.
Glenn Beck's description of George Soros' actions during the Holocaust is completely inappropriate, offensive and over the top. For a political commentator or entertainer to have the audacity to say inaccurately that there's a Jewish boy sending Jews to death camps, as part of a broader assault on Mr. Soros, that's horrific.
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.
The Holocaust was a horrific time, and many people had to make excruciating choices to ensure their survival. George Soros has been forthright about his childhood experiences and his family's history, and there the matter should rest.
My humble opinion is that this was solicited by Media Matters. While the intro to the statement claims that Beck inaccurately connected Soros to the Nazis, I believe that is the untruthful statement. We have seen Soros admit his involvement ... indeed, even calling the year in question as the best year of his life.
I would not be surprised if ADL issued this garbage without even seeing the show. Glenn's point was not what Soros did, but his lack of any remorse or compassion for those who were hurt financially if not killed.
I'm Jewish and I find this ADL statement "repugnant." Go Glenn!
That he feels no guilt is disturbing.
May he rot.
Foxman is a RAT before he’s a Jew.
They will defend him to the death even if it means exposing their own anti-American biases and total ignorance of facts.
Yes. When he was 14 Soros helped the Nazi confiscate property from Jews who were then sent on the to ovens, when asked in later years if he regretted taking place in that activity, Soros said he did not.
ADF is nothing more than a kennel of Commie lapdogs! IMHO
Who cares how, when, what or where they bark?
A 14 yr would not feel guilty given the circumstances. An old man should.
That he doesn’t is pure EVIL.
And, he (adult Soros) said that was one of the best years of his life.
Why is the ADF not "offended" by that statement?
Take a hike ADL. I find your remarks offensive.
The number 1 requirement of the ADL & Abe Foxman - always, always defend and excuse any indiscretion perpetrated by a member of the tribe.
splc’s evil twin...
He is just as much a liberal and a “race” pimp as jackson, sharpton, et al.
It would seem that the ADL is more offended that collaboration with the Nazi Regimes by Jews to turn in other Jews and steal their property is brought to light then they are over the Truth of the matter.
Soros was thirteen years old in March 1944 when Nazi Germany occupied Hungary. Soros worked for the Jewish Council, which had been established during the Nazi occupation of Hungary to forcibly carry out Nazi and Hungarian government anti-Jewish measures. Soros later described this time to writer Michael Lewis:
The Jewish Council asked the little kids to hand out the deportation notices. I was told to go to the Jewish Council. And there I was given these small slips of paper...It said report to the rabbi seminary at 9 a.m....And I was given this list of names. I took this piece of paper to my father. He instantly recognized it. This was a list of Hungarian Jewish lawyers. He said, “You deliver the slips of paper and tell the people that if they report they will be deported.”
Regardless, this Evil Bastard is the worst enemy America and the West has today - bar none.

Just like the NAACP, the JDL is a de facto arm of the Democrat Party.
I noticed Beck parsed his words very carefully. He left no wiggle room, so, this is the best the MediaMatters goons can contrive.
And those remarks are confirmed by Soros’ own remarks and statements, multiple times, and are well known.
Some people need to learn how to SHUT UP.
I think Beck touched a nerve, I also think that era in history should not be allowed to pass uncommented upon especially with someone as unrepentent as Soros.
I’ll give Soros that much, he is a proper bastard, no need to equivocate, he did it, was more than willing to do so,screw you if you don’t like it.
The JDL wouldn’t bother with the likes of fauxman...
The statement from ADL is confirming Soros’ actions on behalf of the nazi’s. They excuse those actions.
Truly, the leftist jews have lost all moral authority to speak on any issue at all.
I guess we need to follow the money. Soros probably donates to the ADL.
I have a 15 year old who feels guilty if he raises his voice to his sister.I would certainly hope a 14 year old could feel remorse. But yes, as an adult he most certainly should feel remorse.
Ole george using the ADL to do his bidding. I heard he has been weeping and moaning over the facts about this despicable despot coming out.
Since when does the ADL have the final say on whether Soros was involved in the holocaust? Are they Soros experts? No, they’re merely experts at bitching about political incorrectivity.
“I wonder why?”
Because the ADL is not an anti-defamation league. It is a just another PC leftist agit-prop group.

Due to his circumstances, the times and his PARENTS I give him a pass at that tender age. As an adult he’s proud and smug about his part in the GENOCIDE of his own people. (or ANY people, for that matter) HUGE difference. There’s no excuse for him NOW.
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
Soros is an atheist! What difference does it make, ADL?
Beck is exposing The Shadow Party, and that must NOT be allowed.
Others have put the links together, but none have had the forum that Beck has, and such a huge audience.
That the Soros minions are making personal threats to him now, says volumes.
Credit goes to Murdoch for not folding. Soros should have aken to heart the saying, “never get in to a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel.”
The fact is the ADL KNOWS the truth. And in the 0.0000000000000001% chance that they don't, there is no excuse.
The ADL is representative of the professional liberal establishment that I hold in the highest contempt. When it comes to the average amateur liberal Joes that I personally know that regurgitate the same BS, generally I let it go and chalk it up to either an actual, proven lack of knowledge of the empirical facts (simple questions ascertain that) or purposeful self-delusion at (worst) a conscious level or (bad) a subconscious level.
My absolute disdain is for the liberal establishment pros that have all day and the resources of money and staff to get at the truth but ignore all proof via a by-any-means-necessary dogma.
In this press release there is no quoting of the substance of Beck's assertions and the facts he purports reveal the truth. And to go further and state that what Soros did/said when he was 14 is beyond approach because he was young excuses not only what Soros did at the time (very, very bad) but ignores Soros' flippant, callous, evil excuses as a grown man with many years to reflect upon his actions.
“Due to his circumstances, the times and his PARENTS I give him a pass at that tender age.”
Remember, that happened in 1944. A young man of 14 was much closer to being an adult then...., in fact many at that age in the U.S. had already left home and went off on their own to start a life.
The cock roaches are now in the light.
Time to stomp them.
“May he rot”
May he burn...
