    Beck says this is just a bunch of sensitive rabbis in Soros' pocket. 400 of them. :rolleyes:

    Rabbis Want Glenn Beck, Roger Ailes to Stop Fox News' Holocaust Comparisons

    Fox News: Rabbis ask Rupert Murdoch to sanction Glenn Beck, Roger Ailes - National Humanist | Examiner.com

    No, it's not ultra-sensitive lefties or ultra-sensitive Jews who find this obscene, and it's certainly not an intersection of that Venn diagram.

    Or, as the letter states:

    No, it's not a leftie thing. It's people that don't live in an echo chamber. This is what happens when bile like Beck's leaks out of it and into mainstream news.

    Beck and Ailes did not invent the holocaust-appropriation tactic, but they've taken it to new lows.

    But you know, I'm Jewish, and we're touchy about stuff like blaming the Jews for the actions of the Nazis and that sort of thing.

    What does Soros have to do with this, aside from Beck's (and your?) attempts at deflection?

    Gotta love it indeed.

    "Fox slanders Soros, therefore slander is true."

    Your silly tin Beck-god notwithstanding, Soros was a 14-year-old boy at the time. Every account says his "crime" was that he went with the Christian who was sheltering him, where said "adoptive father" or whatever you call him, tallied confiscated property.

    Beck says Soros rounded up Jews and sent them to death camps.

    Those are different things, aren't they, sometimes-moderator?

    This is blaming the victim, isn't it, sometimes-moderator?

    Well, for one thing, since 13 obviously did not read either of the cited articles before spouting more lies, the rabbis composed the letter partially in response to Beck's deliberate manipulation of the facts and outright horrendous lies about Soros.

    But the rabbis said that the letter was sparked by Beck's three-part program in November about billionaire philanthropist Soros, who is Jewish and grew up in Nazi-occupied Hungary and is a favorite target of conservative pundits.

    "And George Soros used to go around with this anti-Semite and deliver papers to the Jews and confiscate their property and then ship them off," Beck said on one of the programs. "And George Soros was part of it. He would help confiscate the stuff. It was frightening. Here's a Jewish boy helping send Jews to the death camps."

    (Soros has said that he hid with a Christian family to escape the Nazis, and that he was present when his so-called godfather inventoried property confiscated from Jews who had been deported.)


    13 is apparently of the belief that Beck speaks the truth and has no problem propagating his boldfaced lies, lies and more lies.

    Poor 13, I could regard him as simply pathetic if he weren't so willfully ignorant.

    Ah -- I only read the 2nd link. Thanks.

    I guess that makes all the other Nazi rhetoric on fox ok.

    Re. Soros, what do you think he should have done?

    That doesn't answer my question.

    but if you want to answer the question and delve into what you brought up, what were his words and what was the context?

    Does any of that make Beck's comments, and the other holocaust / nazi rhetoric on fox, ok?

    It was on 60 minutes IIRC, if you are interested look it up.


    What question do you want answered? The Rabbi's org is being funded by Soros, pretty simple he says jump they say how high.

    Soros doen't like criticism and will pay attack dogs to go after his opponents.. Fine with me, I just take what his sock puppets say seriously.

    So you have a problem with something he said, but don't even know the context of the comment?


    The question I asked: "...Re. Soros, what do you think he should have done?"


    2nd time: Does any of that make Beck's comments, and the other holocaust / nazi rhetoric on fox, ok?

    1st time: Funny that you only take Murdoch's sock puppets seriously.

    So Reform, Reconstructionist, and Conservative Judaism in the United States are all pawns of George Soros, just to make your goddam tin god shinier?

    The heads of the rabbinical organizations of all three of these branches signed this letter.

    Many influetial Orthodox rabbis did as well.

    This is not right/left. This is drawing the line. As in, cut the crap, Fox/Beck.

    You can't "look at this one picture from 2006" your way out of it. Everybody knows that people throw around and cheapen terms like "holocaust" and "Nazi". But Beck specifically and Fox as an entertainment network have made hyperbolic references to the Holocaust stock in trade, as have the sign-waving legions of marching morons in the tea parties.

    Many of these individual rabbis - left and right - have spoken up in the past. The magnitude of the united front represented here should give you an idea of how seriously this community has started to take this hyperbolic crap.

    Get your head out of your echo chamber and look at reality for a change. People are getting p.o.d

    Yeah I am fine with calling Soros a fascist.

    I think the left can't stand free speech, that is why they try to prevent it.

    If people stopped to really think about what the Holocaust was really about and the scale of horror during that time, I think they'd agree with the Rabbis.

    It shouldn't be a left/right thing, but here we are. :rolleyes:

    Um. not exactly. Soros funds Open Society Foundations. About the Open Society Foundations | Open Society Foundations

    Open Society Foundation gave some money to a specific project called Funders Collaborative for Youth Organizing which is managed by The Jewish Funds for Justice.

    In other words, OSI funds a managed project of JFSJ, which means JFSJ doesn’t even get to spend the money given by OSI to Funders Collaborative for Youth Organizing - it merely passes it on. It's a conduit not a beneficiary.

    Other than monies for that one specific group, Jewish Funds for Justice does not receive any other funding from Soros or his philanthropies.

    So nice try, 13, but, as usual, totally wrong.

    Oh my goodness. Telling someone that they are wrong is tantamount to a hate crime, isn't it?
