The Anti-Defamation League on Thursday criticized as “completely inappropriate and offensive” remarks by Glenn Beck on his radio and television programs, in which he connected US Jewish billionaire investor George Soros, who was then a young boy, to the actions of others in sending Jews to death camps during the Holocaust.
On his October 10 radio show, Beck described how Soros, who was born in Hungary to Orthodox Jewish parents, “used to go around with this anti-Semite and deliver papers to the Jews and confiscate their property and then ship them off. And George Soros was part of it. He would help confiscate the stuff. It was frightening. Here’s a Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps.”
ADL national director Abe Foxman released a statement calling Beck's comments on Soros inaccurate, inappropriate and horrific.
