  •  Yeah, Soros is as much of a foreigner as (8+ / 0-)

    Rupert Murdoch, and far less destructive to the nation and the planet.

    •  Murdoch only became a citizen (9+ / 0-)

      because it was necessary before he could buy up the media in the US. And I also recall that his special connections rushed his citizenship, though my memory may be faulty.

      Did Soros become a US citizenship because he had to to complete a business deal, or because he loves the country?

      •  George Soros fled the Nazis (22+ / 0-)

        at age 14, and was one of the survivors of the Holocaust that this nation took in, sheltered, protected, and grew. It makes me incredibly angry to hear people on the right slander his patriotism - or for that matter, his commitment to open governments and open societies. Soros knows fascism and he's spent a good part of his fortune trying to build small-d democratic reforms here and abroad.

        The irony of Beck comparing leftists like Soros to nazis is incredible.  In the US Soros has spent many millions advancing human rights, prison reform, protection for immigrants, due process and death penalty reform, voter enfranchisement, etc etc. Internationally, he has done even more.  He has done far more than the US government to try to stabilize democratic processes in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, which is a huge undertaking.

        Glenn Beck is a dangerous sociopathic grifter.  For him to be driving this propaganda campaign against George Soros just tells you who Glenn Beck would be backing if he were in Germany in the 1930's.  Soros knows Beck's kind - he barely survived childhood because of them and has spent his life trying to make sure the Glenn Becks of this world don't force other 14 year olds to spend their formative years fleeing mass murderers.

        •  Murdoch was/is a proud Australian (6+ / 0-)

          who only took American citizenship as a necessity to further his ambitions. His involvement in US politics is all about accruing power and money for himself. I believe he is completely amoral. Just doesn't care - the fittest will survive and the devil take the hindmost are words to live by for him.

          Soros has been an American for decades - no comparison.

          the future begins
