Gohmert Calls Out Nazi Soros
« on: December 09, 2018, 11:58:32 AM »
Love it, the left explodes. :biggrin:

Texas congressman Louie Gohmert is under fire for repeating a widely cited claim that leftist billionaire and global activist George Soros helped Nazis confiscate Jewish property during World War II — but Gohmert isn’t backing down.

Gohmert made the controversial comments during a Fox Business interview on Thursday.

Hours later, Open Society Foundation president Patrick Gaspard demanded an apology for what he described as “a disturbing and false anti-Semitic slur against George Soros.”

“You are not entitled to misrepresent his and his family’s courage during such a terrifying and difficult period in our history. This kind of vile discrimination and lying would be troubling to see at any time,” Gaspard wrote in a letter to the Texas Republican.

But the problem for Gaspard, is that Soros admitted it.

KROFT: You watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.

SOROS: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.

KROFT: In what way?

SOROS: That one should think ahead. One should understand and anticipate events when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a very personal experience of evil.

KROFT: That sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

SOROS: Not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t see the connection. But it was, it created no, no problem at all.

KROFT: No feeling of guilt?


Soros, who is Jewish, founded the Open Society Foundation, making the Hungarian-born billionaire Gaspard’s boss. The organization funds and organizes left-wing activist groups around the world, and most prominently in the United States — which was the context of Gohmert’s remarks.

Gohmert referenced a 1998 60 Minutes interview with Soros that centered on his stock-market manipulations, one of which was making billions from crashing the British pound.
