Soros Likens Fox News, Beck, Murdoch to Nazis


george-sorosBillionaire financier George Soros blasted Fox News, Glenn Beck and Rupert Murdoch Sunday in a CNN interview, likening them to Nazis or the fictitious “Big Brother” of George Orwell for what he described as manipulation of the public. He also suggested that the tea party movement was deluded and should be pitied because they don’t “understand” the economic forces at work in the United States, according to CNN.

Last year, Soros donated $1 million to the liberal media analysis group Media Matters, which devotes much of its work to attacking Fox. For years, the group had denied being secretly funded by Soros, who stressed that this was his first ever donation to the group.

Soros took his shots on Sunday’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” on CNN, accusing Murdoch of using Fox News and his media empire to change the direction of government. He reacted to Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck’s assertion that there is a “shadow government” with puppets and puppet masters, and Soros is pulling the strings.

“Well, I would be amused if people saw the joke in it, because what he is doing, he is projecting what Fox – what Rupert Murdoch is doing, because he has a media empire that is telling the people some falsehoods and mis – and leading the government in the wrong direction,” Soros said. “But, you know, by accusing me of doing that, it’s kind of – it makes it rather hard to see that it’s really – he is working for the man who is doing it which is Fox News.”

“Fox News makes a habit – it has imported the methods of George Orwell, you know, newspeak, where you can tell the people falsehoods and deceive them,” Soros said. “…They succeeded in – in Germany, where the Weimar Republic collapsed and you had a Nazi regime follow it. So this is a very, very dangerous way of deceiving people. And I would like people to be aware that they are being deceived. Now, I – because I saw it as a child, I immediately react that way. But the people in America, they are innocent. They haven’t had the experience. They’re having the experience now. And I hope they wake up and they realize that they are being deceived.”

Zakaria asked Soros about his thoughts of the tea party.

“Look, I think the people in the tea party are very decent people, hard-working. They have been hit by a force that they – that comes from somewhere which they can’t fully understand,” Soros said. “And they are being misled. And they are misled by people who are using it for their selfish purposes, namely to remove regulations and reduce taxation. So reduce taxation and regulation and they are being used and deceived.”

  1. I don’t understand, didn’t Soros like the Nazis? He was supposed to have worked for them. So isn’t he saying all these organizations are good? Very confusing.

  2. Will the Simon Wiesenthal Center call a press conference to condemn and denounce Soros? Or are those types of actions politically incorrect and reserved for Republicans only?

    I guess he want’s to please his liberal financial backers.

    All FLUFF!

  3. lets not forget soros collaborated wth the nazis to seize jewish property. when asked if he regreted it by 60 minutes, he said NO. Now that was 60 minutes, not fox! Soros is the nazi here and the puppet master. He and obama are in it toether to destroy this country!

  4. George Soros may be many things but he is not a Nazi or Nazi collaborator. Here is a description of what glenn beck and the other nut jobs at fox call “collaborating with Nazis” George Soros: “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.”

    That isn’t cooperating with Nazis. i don’t understand why the frum community thinks that lowlifes like Beck,Hannity and Limbaugh are such great people. These people are the lowest of the low and make their living bashing people who are actually doing things to help people. They are worse and more immoral then most (not all) pop and movie starts who at least provide entertainment without knocking others down.

  5. No, Soros was not a nazi, but worse a collaborator who went against his own. Being raised in the jewish faith, i would like to see nothing more than the MOSSAD bring this man to justice.
