Left-Wing Jewish Group Tells Fox to Fire Glenn Beck


glen-beckA U.S. Jewish group has called on Fox News to fire its popular political commentator Glenn Beck, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported today.

Jewish Funds for Justice called to fire the controversial pundit over a series of what they call ‘disturbing’ remarks, including an attack on left-wing Jewish billionaire George Soros.

Late last year, Beck dubbed Soros a “puppet master” attempting to take over U.S. media, and damned him as a “Jewish boy helping to send the Jews to the death camps.”

In a show aired late last year, Beck called Soros – a Jewish-Hungarian Holocaust survivor – a Nazi collaborator, for admittedly aiding the emptying out of Jewish homes during WWII.

Late last year, the Anti-Defamation League criticized Beck’s attack on Soros, with ADL chief Abraham Foxman saying Beck’s remarks about Soros’ childhood were “inappropriate, offensive and over the top.”

Foxman later told the website Salon.com that he still believes Beck is a strong supporter of Israel and the Jewish people.

Today, the JTA reported that the Jewish Funds for Justice attempted to hand in its 10,000-signature petition to the Manhattan headquarters of News Corp., Fox’s parent company, but was denied by security, prompting JFSJ president Simon Greer to mail in the petition instead.



  1. Why all the fuss? Is it true? Is Soros a Nazi Collaborator? If yes – the yemach shmo and Yasher Koach to Beck. If not, then we should boycott all things Beck. Hows about some REAL info Matzav?

  2. Beck is 100 % correct. This bum Soros is a human piece of trash. He collaberate dwith the Nazis and is a self hating Jew. These ” Jewish” groups should learn history and they will discover the truth.

  3. Absolutely crazy. Glenn Beck is not a jew hater, on the contrary…A man with the right family values and respectful to mankind. And Soros is a left wing, self hating jew who, I can’t believe any self respecting jew would support!!!!!!!!
    I listen to his program every morning. He is a breath of fresh air in a sick society. He brings some sanity to the airwaves. Decent, respectful man …. love to listen to him!!!!!!

  4. I am an Orthodox Jew and Soros a Jewish-Hungarian Holocaust survivor -is a Nazi collaborator, for admittedly aiding the emptying out of Jewish homes during WWII!!!
    I have more of a hold on Judiasim, I speak more in the name of Judiasim than all of these left wingers that are badgering Glenn Beck, by virtue of my practicing my religion. Go Glenn Go. Go Rush Go.

  5. Even if he’s fired he’ll still say the same ridiculous garbage to get money. He’ll write another book or two to get a boatload more of $. The reason why he’s attacking Soros is to get ratings. He slings mud at the people he disagrees with so more people will watch. I’m that if Soros was on the right Beck would come up with every excuse to defend him. This isn’t real political debate. It’s just ad hominem attacks and commercialized ranting.

  6. I’m too busy to get into what Mr. Soros did or didn’t do. And I don’t feel the need to investigate a fellow who the Simon Weisenthal center is not investigating either. Allegations may or may not be true and I am not the Judge. That said, Mr. Beck is a free for all and has a limited quality of contribution to my own day. I dont feel the need to take him off television, but that said, I dont find myself ever watching him. If they replace him with someone more informative and more relevant to me, I’ll be the first to tune in more. I don’t have a vendetta against Mr. Beck, but he does not enliven my life at any level. Good luck!

  7. In this Olam HaSheker, The TRUTH is revealing itself more & more, Boruch Hashem. It is finding itself every where. The more noise made about revealing the TRUTH, just proves how bad it is out there. TRUTH are these peoples worst enemies.

  8. If it’s true, and you don’t like what he says – don’t listen or watch him.
    If what he says isn’t tru, I’m sure Mr. Soros could find himself a lawyer to sue for slander/libel or defamation of character.

  9. My father used false Christian papers to hide during the war in Hungary, as did many other frum Jews. Soros’ family placed him with such false papers with a family. Like my father who faked being supportive of the Hungarian govt Soros did the same. Nebich in that faking role he was present when the belongings of Jews who were gone were transported. My grandmother nebich sorted clothing that came out of the gas chambers in Auschwitz.

    Soros is absolutely a left winger. Attack him all you want for that. But don’t chas v’chalilah let Beck attack Soros as a nazi and claim Soros is part of a master plan to take over the world. When people say that they end up saying anti Semitic things.

  10. To the six excellent comments posted here, I say:

    “TRIPLE DITTOS!!!!!!!”

    Mr. Beck gives a pretty good program, expousing good old religious/moral/social/American values.

    What in the world did he say that was (supposedly) so bad??? What in the world did he say that could even remotely be thought of as being “anti-Semitic”???

    It should not need to be said that all this outright sick nit-picking of every little word of non-Jewish officials to say that this statement or that remark was “insensitive” to Jewish people is absolutely ridiculous!! It is a terrible Chillul HaShem, as it must certainly be severely irritating to the officials to repeatedly hear these baseless cries of “anti-Semitism.” At best, they will think that we are people who are totally paranoid.

    For these people to think that they can order a major news company to fire one of its top program hosts — WHAT AN INSANE CUTZPA AND WHAT AN EXTRA STUPID CHILLUL HASHEM!!!!!

    This “Jewish Funds for Justice” and the 10,000 people who signed that meaningless petition certainly need to give Mr. Beck and the Fox News company a very big apology.

  11. Usher,

    Given your experiences during the Holocaust, your slavish love of liberalism is quite puzzling. Your hero Roosevelt allowed the wholesale slaughter of 6 million yidden when he had large majorities in Congress for most of his presidency and could have allowed them into the U.S. Instead, starting with the tragic voyage of the St. Louis, he happily abandoned them to their fates.

    You choose vilify people like Glen Beck, who are effusive in their support of Israel, simply because they disagree with your warped political ideology.

    May your “hero” and all others like him roast in hell for eternity.

  12. From wikipedia:
    Soros was thirteen years old in March 1944 when Nazi Germany occupied Hungary.[16] Soros worked for the Jewish Council,[8] which had been established during the Nazi occupation of Hungary to forcibly carry out Nazi and Hungarian government anti-Jewish measures.[17][18] 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.”[19] In 1944, at age 14, Soros lived with and posed as the godson of an employee of the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture. On one occasion, the official was ordered to inventory the remaining contents of the estate of a wealthy Jewish family that had fled the country.[20] Rather than leave the young George alone in the city, the official brought him along. The following year, Soros survived the Battle of Budapest, in which Soviet and German forces fought house-to-house through the city.
