these two should fuel anonymous internet rants for years to come
Have we established that Murdoch was aware of and approved the actions of his employees? I'm not trying to defend the guy, there is no defense for that shit, but if he had no clue, the scandal doesn't make him evil.
On the up side, he will still remain an evil global media mogul...
Murdoch is a vulture feasting off of the carrion, Soros makes the carrion.
What has Soros done worthy of the "evil" title?
The tip of the proverbial iceberg.
"What disturbs most is something you will not read about in his Wikipedia entry, except in the most veiled manner. Soros who appears in the right-hand column of that entry as a Hungarian American and an atheist is a Hungarian Jew who, when 14 at the height of the Holocaust, was, well
no Anne Frank.
The Ottawa Suns Ezra Levant, quoted by Kimball, puts it succinctly:
To survive, George, then a teenager, collaborated with the Nazis.
First he worked for the Judenrat. That was the Jewish council set up by the Nazis to do their dirty work for them. Instead of the Nazis rounding up Jews every day for the trains, they delegated that murderous task to Jews who were willing to do it to survive another day at the expense of their neighbours.
Theodore [his father] hatched a better plan for his son. He bribed a non-Jewish official at the agriculture ministry to let George live with him. George helped the official confiscate property from Jews.
Well, okay, youre thinking he was fourteen. Give the guy a break. And I must admit that I a secular Jew like Soros have occasionally speculated about how I would have behaved in similar circumstances. And, although in my fantasy I might be a noble resistance fighter, laying my life on the line against fascism the way Primo Levi and others have described it, I certainly have no way of knowing. I might have been a sleazy collaborator myself. But I do know this: if I had done something like that just to survive, it would have haunted me the rest of my days.
And heres the really creepy part: not so George Soros. In a surprisingly overlooked interview with 60 Minutes Steve Kroft, Soros denied guilt or second thoughts about his World War II activities.
From Levant again:
How does Soros feel about what he did as a teenager? Has it kept him up at night?
Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes asked him that. Was it difficult? Not at all, Soros answered.
No feeling of guilt? asked Kroft. No, said Soros. There was no sense that I shouldnt be there. If I wasnt doing it, somebody else would be taking it away anyhow. Whether I was there or not. So I had no sense of guilt.
Somebody else would have done it. Sound familiar? Its just the kind of excuse you might use when devaluing the British pound. A psychoanalyst might call it splitting, taking a part of your personality and splitting it off, as if there were two disconnected parts of you the monster and the good citizen. The good citizen provides a mask, a disguise for the monster to do his work."
Israel Matzav: Just how evil is Soros?
Gee you're dumb.
Define the word 'evil'.
So many times we see that some people have their own private definitions of words. Usually it means a lame argument and the person can only rationalize their opinion by changing the definitions of the words spoken or written.
For example, take Obama calling increasing taxes a 'spending cut'. I am sure, in his mind, that is exactly what it is.
So, what do you mean by evil?
Separate names with a comma.
