Uh-Oh, Media Matters is going to be upset. Jewish Funds For Justice will have to stand outside in the snow to protest, and those 400 progressive Rabbis — well lets just say it’s time for them to run another advertisement and it is not going to be pretty. These are just some of the groups who have a conniption every time someone makes an inappropriate reference to Nazi Germany. This time it was their fearless leader himself, Mr. Spooky Dude, George Soros.
Appearing on Fareed Zakaria’s CNN show, Mr. Dude said that Fox News uses Orwellian double speak just like Nazis used to collapse the Weinmar Republic and take control of Germany:
“Well, look, 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. “And you wouldn’t believe that an open society and a democracy, these methods can succeed. But, actually, they did succeed. 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.”
Almost a month ago, 400 Rabbis led by a socialist Jewish Organization called Jewish Funds For Justice paid for an ad in the Wall Street Journal calling for Fox News to take disciplinary action against Glenn Beck, saying in part:
It is not appropriate to call executives of another news agency “Nazis.” And it is not appropriate to make literally hundreds of on-air references to the Holocaust and Nazis when characterizing people with whom you disagree.
It is because this issue has a profound impact on each of us, our families and our communities that we are calling on Fox News to meet the standard it has set for itself: “to exercise the ultimate sensitivity when referencing the Holocaust.”
We respectfully request that Glenn Beck be sanctioned by Fox News for his completely unacceptable attacks on a survivor of the Holocaust and that Roger Ailes apologize for his dismissive remarks about rabbis’ sensitivity to how the Holocaust is used on the air.
Since these Rabbis are so concerned about inappropriate references to the Holocaust, I am certain that they will run another advertisement, this time to criticize George Soros for his constant and inappropriate Nazi references. I am sure Media Matters who initially raised this issue, and has spent much of the past few months criticizing Beck for what they labeled as inappropriate Nazi references will criticize Soros.
You see, if these 400 Rabbis, Jewish Funds For Justice and Media Matters ignore George Soros’ inappropriate references to Nazi Germany, only two of which I display above, they are nothing but hypocrites who twist and turn words and use half truths to label people as bigots while ignoring the same words they criticized when they come from someone who agrees with their progressive agenda.
All I can say is thank God none of those Rabbis are teaching my kids. I want them to have better values than that.
UPDATE: Alana Goodman of Commentary contacted Jewish Funds For Justice and as expected got a lame excuse saying that Soros’ statement was misinterpreted. I believe the technical term for their excuse is “liar, liar, pants on fire.”
