Stu blog: Someone finally asks George Soros the tough questions

CNN’s only-visible-when-we-mock-him host Fareed Zakaria is back at it again, and this time he’s not taking any crap from anyone.  Least of all George Soros, who received the single most brutal interview in the annals of journalistic history this weekend.  I thought he really pushed Soros to the brink with this non-leading-non-softball question:

ZAKARIA: So, George, Glenn Beck has been on this kick that you are actually the mastermind who is trying to bring down the American government. How do you react when you see this kind of thing?

Wow, what a difficult question.  Luckily , George is up to the challenge.

SOROS: Well, I would be amused if -- if people saw the joke in it, because what he is doing, he is projecting what FOX, what Rupert Murdoch is doing, because he has a -- a media empire that is telling the people some falsehoods and this -- and leading the government in the wrong direction.

But, you know, by accusing me of doing that, it kind of makes it rather hard to see that it's really, he is working for the man who is doing it, which is FOX News.

Do you get what has happened here?

1)      Zakaria introduces a concept of a puppet master as “truly bizarre” in the preceding segment.

2)      Soros says that the only reason Glenn says he is a puppet master is because Rupert Murdoch is a puppet master.

3)      Zakaria doesn’t follow up at all.

You see, Zakaria is too deep into the process of painting Glenn as having ‘wild and crazy theories’ to point out that his buddy George has the same ‘wild and crazy theory.’  Against all of his viewers wishes, Zakaria continues…

ZAKARIA: But it's very personal. I mean, he talks about you as a 14-year-old boy and he accuses you of -- of essentially helping to round Jews up -- you're Jewish yourself. You lost many, many people in the holocaust. How did you feel when you heard that?

How did you feel??? You get him Fareed!!! If I might suggest another way to phrase it next time:

“Ignoring the fact that he was only using your own words, and assuming the fact that Glenn Beck is completely evil and you are so truly angelic as to deserve my kneeling in front of you in worship---how do mean people make you feel when they say mean things?”

But the true journalism really kicks in during his answer.

SOROS: Well, look, FOX News makes a habit -- it has imported the methods of George Orwell, you know, newspeak, where you can tell the people falsehoods and deceive them. And you wouldn't believe that at an open society and a democracy these methods can succeed.

But, actually, they did succeed. They succeeded in Germany where the Weimar Republic collapsed and you had a -- a Nazi regime follow it. So this is a very, very dangerous way of deceiving people, and I would like people to be aware that they are being deceived.

Once again, realize what is happening here in Zakaria’s brain:

1)      Zakaria says Glenn is mean because he made a Nazi reference when talking about Soros.

2)      Soros responds by making a Nazi reference about Glenn.

How does Zakaria follow up?   Does he bother to mention that twice in two minutes Soros has done exactly the same terrible awful thing that Glenn has supposedly done?

ZAKARIA: What do you think of this broader movement of the Tea Party, of -- of what's going on on the right?

Is he even listening to his own interview?  ZERO follow up??  NOTHING?

Seriously, I would given a tougher interview while holding a garden hose pointed at a whipped-cream-covered Carrie Underwood lying on the hood of a Bugatti Veyron.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
