Rabbis To Glenn Beck/Fox: Apologize For George Soros Nazi Flap
400 Rabbis Publish Open Letter In Wall Street Journals Demanding Apology From Glenn, Beck, Fox News Roger Ailes Chief Over George Soros Nazi Flap
Glen Beck, Rubert Murdoch, and the chief of Fox News Roger Ailes have 400 angry and upset rabbis to contend with. The group of rabbis have purchased a full page in the Wall Street Journal demanding an apology from Glenn Beck for the repeated use of Nazi and holocaust imagery he used on his Fox News TV show; and for the attacks he made on George Soros - a Jew, who was an adolescent during the Nazi occupation of his native Hungary.
Glenn Beck has previously responded to such criticism by calling his Jewish critics "left-wing rabbis."
Now, it seems rabbis both left and right wing have spent $100,000 in the Murdoch owned Wall Street Journal to get their point across.
Beck, according to the rabbis, has made "literally hundreds of on-air references to the Holocaust and Nazis when characterizing people with whom he disagrees," compares American leaders he does not like to Nazis and has said putting the "common good" first leads to "death camps."
"In the charged political climate in the current civic debate, much is tolerated, and much is ignored or dismissed," the letter said.
"But you diminish the memory and meaning of the Holocaust when you use it to discredit any individual or organization you disagree with. That is what Fox News has done in recent weeks, and it is not only 'left-wing rabbis' who think so."
The rabbis also reportedly take on Glenn Beck for his treatment of billionaire George Soros calling them "unacceptable attacks."
Beck attacked Soros' conduct during World War Two accusing the 14 year old of knowingly sending fellow Jews to their deaths.
"Here's a Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps. And I am certainly not saying that George Soros enjoyed that, even had a choice. I mean, he's 14 years old. He was surviving. So I'm not making a judgment. That's between him and God," Glenn Beck said during his Fox News series referring to George Soros as "The Puppet Master."
Here is how Wikipedia describes what happened to George Soros in Hungary during World War Two.
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."
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. 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.
