When young Schwartz Gyorgy was collaborating with the National Socialist German Worker's Party in the 1940's, he viewed his actions as merely utilitarian. As Gyorgy helped the National Socialists, or Nazis for short, confiscate the property of Jews, he said he felt no sense of guilt. Gyorgy, who now goes by the name George Soros, said if he hadn't helped the Nazis purify the country, someone else surely would have. Young Soros took property from the Jews and profited from it because he could, end of story. By his own admission, he doesn't lose a wink of sleep over his actions.
A little later in life, Soros the wealthy hedge fund investor saw that the British pound needed to be devalued, so he bought up billions of dollars of British sterling and made other financial moves to profit from the coming devaluation. Soros became known as The Man Who Broke The Bank Of England for those moves. He helped crash the British economy because he could, end of story. He didn't lose a wink of sleep over his actions.
These days, Soros, who has said he "fancied himself some kind of God" is very interested in American politics. He wants to devalue the American dollar and redistribute American wealth to other countries, among many other things. He donates tens of millions of dollars to left-wing media outlets in this country, such as Moveon.org, ThinkProgress, Center For American Progress, Media Matters, etc. He does that because he can, end of story. A few days ago, Soros gave Media Matters a million bucks to target Fox News. Here's what Soros said about that donation:
Despite repeated assertions to the contrary by various Fox News commentators, I have not to date been a funder of Media Matters. However, in view of recent evidence suggesting that the incendiary rhetoric of Fox News hosts may incite violence, I have now decided to support the organization. Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.
Soros is being disingenuous when he says he has not donated to Media Matters previously. He has not donated money directly to Media Matters before now, but as Politico notes, Media Matters “has received funding from or formed partnerships with several groups that Soros funds. These include the Tides Foundation, Democracy Alliance, Moveon.org and the Center for American Progress.” George Soros is the big money behind the left-wing media in this country. MSNBC is the television outlet for that media. Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, and company air the "news" that the Soros-funded media puts out on the internet.
A few days ago, George Soros, the self-described Fox News hater, donated $1.8 million to National Public Radio (NPR). Yesterday, NPR fired Juan Williams, who had been an NPR news analyst for 10 years, but who, more importantly, is a regular guest on Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor. The lefty Soros-NPR cabal doesn't like their people going on Fox News, so they manufactured a reason to fire him. Soros wants to purify NPR and the rest of the media just as he helped the Nazis purify Germany. NPR's excuse to fire Williams was a comment he made on Fox News about getting nervous when he sees a Muslim dressed in Muslim garb getting on an airplane, a view I imagine is shared by a few hundred million other Americans after 9/11 and subsequent attempts by Muslim jihadists to bring down planes. It isn't bigotry to have such a thought. I've had the same thought myself in airports. It's human nature, the survival instinct. While we don't want to be insensitive, we don't want to die in a fiery airplane crash either. NPR fired Juan Williams for being a human being with an opinion. That's their official line, anyway. Here's NPR President and CEO
NPR chief executive Vivian Schiller is defending the firing of news analyst Juan Williams after his comments on the Fox News Channel, saying his feelings about Muslims are between him and "his psychiatrist or his publicist."
Schiller spoke Thursday at the Atlanta Press Club. She said Williams' firing is not a reflection of his comments that he gets nervous when he sees people in Muslim garb on an airplane.
She says she has no problem with people taking controversial positions, but that such opinions should not come from NPR reporters or news analysts.
So, NPR news analysts should not offer opinions, eh ? Hmmm. Is it even possible to "analyze" the news without offering an opinion ? I'm dubious. The real truth, however, is that NPR's people offer opinions ALL THE TIME. Here are a few examples:
From calling Tea Party members “Tea Baggers,” to saying that "the evaporation of 4 million" Christians would leave the world a better place, to suggesting that God could give former Sen. Jesse Helms or his family AIDS from a blood transfusion, NPR's personalities have said some pretty un-PC things in the past. A look at the record reveals no shortage of intolerant statements and unbalanced segments on the publicly sponsored network's airwaves.
- NPR's Terry Gross hosted Princeton professor Sean Wilentz, who has written that President George W. Bush practiced "a radicalized version of Reaganism," Newsbusters' Tom Graham wrote. "Can you think of another time in American history when there have been as many people running for Congress who seem to be on the extreme?" Gross asked, according to Graham. "Not running for Congress, no," Wilentz replied. "I mean even back in the '50s."
NPR is fine with opinions, provided they are left-wing opinions. Why else do you think left-winger George Soros is giving them money ? In order to foster media balance ? Hardly. Soros is giving NPR money so NPR can step up it's efforts to attack conservatives.
Juan Williams knows the real reason he was fired:
Saying that he thinks NPR terminated his contract because "I appear on Fox," news analyst Juan Williams tonight continued to protest the decision by NPR executives to cut the organization's ties with him.
"I don't fit in their box. I'm not a predictable, black liberal," he told Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.
That's the bottom line. While Williams often does take liberal positions, he does not fall into the liberal loon category. He is not a lemming. He is a thoughtful and independent thinker, someone I enjoy hearing, even if I don't always agree with him. I'm not even going to entertain the notion that he is some sort of bigot, which is absurd. He most definitely is not. He has written books on the civil rights movement, not that he needs me to defend him.
Finally, isn't it about time we stop giving NPR, a partisan political group, federal funds ? Why should the taxpayers support that ? If the taxpayers were funding Fox News, I'm certain left-wingers would be protesting in the streets, so why do we tolerate funding liberal partisan groups ? It makes no sense to me.
