Glenn Beck’s latest anti-Semitic attacks on George Soros (who is Jewish) should raise alarm bells and anger with people of all political persuasions. Glenn Beck is an expert at laying blame but pretending (very transparently) that he refuses to pass judgment himself. If Fox News is serious about calling themselves “fair and balanced,” they will have to come out with a statement against these radical and quite obviously false comments.
Here’s a more complete explanation about the twisted intentions behind Mr. Beck’s comments and why they’re so dangerous: http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2010-11-10/glenn-becks-anti-semitic-attack-on-george-soros/
Of course, George Soros is a major donor to the Democratic Party, as well as to human rights and transparent governance causes globally. It would be perfectly reasonable for a media figure to point out Soros’ funding of liberal causes (provided that this is done in a manner that attempts to be truthful), but ruthlessly discrediting the man by antisemitically portraying him as a Jewish Uncle Tom are patently reprehensible and must be retracted immediately and unequivocally. All Jews deserve a tearful but sincere apology from Mr. Beck. This is another unfortunate example of a partisan message being used obscure the truth and cause harm.
