Liberals now want everyone to think that any criticism of billionaire liberal financier George Soros is “anti-Semitic.” While every conservative knows about the millions Soros funnels into left-wing causes, I doubt even most were aware of his Jewish heritage. Regardless, even Fox News is caving to the insanity after Lou Dobbs and a guest criticized Soros.

The comment came during an interview with Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell, who accused the migrant caravan that began in Honduras as being funded by the “Soros-occupied State Department,” obviously referring to far-left individuals employed in the State Department. “A lot of these folks also have affiliates who are getting money from the Soros-occupied State Department, and that is of great, great concern,” Farrell told a seemingly unfazed Dobbs. “If we’re going to start cutting money, start cutting money there.”

That’s when the left trotted out their favorite lie in order to shut down debate:

I don’t honestly believe a single liberal found the comment to be “racist,” but figured it would be easier to rally up anger against Fox News if they portrayed Farrell’s comments as “racist,” rather than “factually incorrect” or “unsubstantiated.” Talking Point Memo’s Josh Marshall explained why he’s pretending to believe the comments are anti-Semitic. I say “pretending,” because I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt that he isn’t insane.

Yes, there are countless conspiracies about Soros, but to pretend conservative criticism of him is due to his religion rather than his political allegiances is ridiculous. CNN also joined in, holding a panel discussion involving five individuals who also decided to pretend that criticism of George Soros is somehow anti-Semitic.

Soros during the Nazi occupation

The irony here: During an interview for “60 Minutes” in 1998, Soros discussed the lack of remorse he felt in helping the Nazis confiscate Jewish property. Soros had pretended to be a Christian to escape the Nazis.

“My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson,” Kroft said.

“Yes, yes,” Soros answered.

“Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews,” Kroft continued.

“That’s right. Yes,” Soros responded.

“I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?” Kroft asked.

“Not, not at all.  Not at all,” a smiling Soros said.

He was then asked if there were any feelings of guilt. “No,” Soros responded.

And yet, all it took was one complaint from the Anti-Defamation League and Fox News caved. According to Deadline, in addition to pulling the episode, Fox also said it would not book Farrell again for any of its programs on Fox Business or Fox News. ‘We condemn the rhetoric by the guest on Lou Dobbs Tonight. This episode was a repeat which has now been pulled from all future airings,” said a statement from Gary Schreier, senior vice president of programming at the 21st Century Fox-owned network.'”

If Fox News would cave on criticism of George Soros, what won’t they cave on? It would’ve been appropriate for Fox to point out that the views of commentators are not those of the network, but why give credibility to the egregious lie that the only reason one would oppose George Soros is a hatred of Jews? Since when has a conservative implied liberals are anti-Semitic for opposing Jewish Republicans like Sheldon Adelson?

Are bogus accusations of racism now so powerful that even Fox News will cave to them? What a depressing development that is.
