Is George Soros a victim of Glenn Beck and Fox News? That'a the argument being out forth by Bill Moyers in a discussion he had with Arianna Huffington.
George Soros, believe it or not, George Soros, whatever you think about his wealth or his politics, George Soros was, next to Vaclav Havel, I think the most catalytic agent for helping to bring down the communist government behind the Iron Curtain because he gave everybody who wanted one an equivalent of a Xerox machine and so they could get the message out. And he is deeply troubled by the Orwellian power of the rightwing in this country today. He talks about it. I was on his board for several years, and I'm off now that I'm back on the air, but I was on his board, and he is deeply troubled. He's a great devotee of the open society, the society that does change because it listens to itself and learns from its experience. He's been the victim, of course, of Glenn Beck and the right when the Fox News assassins. So he's thought a great deal about the Orwellian idea and he said it has arrived in this country. It is here. Part of the permanent character, a permanent characteristic of American democracy which is therefore self‑suicidally bent.
"Let's make sure we get the facts right. He did give people Xerox machines. He did help collapse the Czech Republic. He helped," Glenn said. "But not because he loves the republic, not because he loves freedom. Because he's going for what he calls an open society. That's why."
"An open society is one‑world government, no borders, no flags."
"Bill Moyers said that (Soros) was the catalytic force for change and for the bringing down of those governments, and I will tell you now he will be remembered as the catalytic force for bringing this country down too and collapsing this currency."
