What's So Bad About George Soros? (According to Glenn Beck, he caused the Holocaust!)
George Soros was recently outed as being a large donor (not the largest, nor a founding donor, but three quarters of a mil over three years) to an organization that I support, and people are up in arms in a way that I don't quite understand. I mean, I can see that he has maybe had some shady business dealings in the past, but no worse than plenty of conservative icons, and yet conservatives seem to see him as satan. Now, I guess I can understand that maybe it is a politics thing, as the guy seems to be just socially progressive, supporting organizations like the ACLU and MoveOn.org, but what seems to odd to me is that no liberals seem to want to step forward to defend him. Is that because he is a free marketeer, and that just gets associated with conservatism, which confuses everyone as to what Soros is, or is there something more going on with him that I'm missing?
I mean, I can't say that I like the sound of short selling currency, and all, but when a dude pulls that shit and gives money to conservative groups, he is considered a patriot. Dude doing the same and giving the money to progressive groups has no defenders? It just seems like I'm missing something.
