THE MADNESS OF KING GEORGE.
Tyran-a-Soros
by Martin Peretz
Post date 02.02.07 | Issue date 02.12.07

George Soros lunched with some reporters on Saturday at Davos. He talked about spending $600 million on civil society projects during the 1990s, then trying to cut back to $300 million, and how this year it will be between $450 and $500 million. His new projects aim, in Floyd Norris's words, to promote a "common European foreign policy" (read: an anti-American foreign policy) and also to study the integration (or so he thinks) of Muslims in eleven European cities. He included among his dicta a little slight at Bill and Melinda Gates, who "have chosen public health, which is like apple pie." And then, after saying the United States was now recognizing the errors it made in Iraq, he added this comment, as reported by Norris in The New York Times' online "Davos Diary": "To what extent it recognizes the mistake will determine its future." Soros said Turkey and Japan were still hurt by a reluctance to admit to dark parts of their history and contrasted that reluctance to Germany's rejection of its Nazi-era past. "America needs to follow the policies it has introduced in Germany. We have to go through a certain deNazification process." ...

February 2, 2007 -- SEN. Barack Obama might want to tell George Soros to shut up, now that the Hungarian-born billionaire has equated the George W. Bush administration with the Third Reich. Soros, who spent $26 million trying to beat Bush two years ago, is a key supporter of the media-darling Illinois Democrat's presidential campaign. But last week at Davos, Soros made folks like Gwyneth Paltrow and Sean Penn look downright patriotic. After asserting that the United States is recognizing the error it made in Iraq, Soros said, "To what extent it recognizes the mistake will determine its future." He went on to say that Turkey and Japan are still hurt by a reluctance to admit to dark parts of their history, and contrasted that reluctance to Germany's rejection of its Nazi-era past. "America needs to follow the policies it has introduced in Germany," Soros said. "We have to go through a certain de-Nazification process." Soros spokesman Michael Vachon told Page Six: "There is nothing unpatriotic about demanding accountability from the president. Those responsible for taking America into this needless war should do us all a favor and retire from public office."

Denazification? Am I the only one who sees the irony that the man calling for this is the biggest offender?

Nope, that's why I highlighted it!

Shame shame shame, Kathianne! ;) Are you suggesting that our good friend George Soros is anything but an upstanding honest individual? He's an upstanding & much celebrated member of the leftist world! He should be applauded... well, once you get over the fact that he has a sick obsession with George W. Bush, is a hypocrite on just about every level, AND a convicted criminal he's an upstanding honest individual. You know, of all the liberals out there, I think he exemplifies liberal hypocrisy more than anyone else. Entertaining reading nonetheless...

Barack Obama might want to tell George Soros to shut up
There's a huge assumption there... the assumption being, of course, that Barak disagrees with Soros. I'll be waiting for Obamamania to shrug off any donations by Soros & public condemnation of Soros' anti-American rhetoric, damaging financial behavior (from a liberal point of view,) and his incessant hypocrisy.
