According to James Simpson in an article at American Thinker yesterday, a major call has been issued for Fox News to bring back Glenn Beck. The reason is the growing backlash against the influence of global financier George Soros at the network.
Not only has Simpson issued a call for the return of Beck but an entire movement has been spurred in support of the idea of Beck’s resurrection at Fox in order to provide a counter balance to the growing influence of George Soros.
Soros has made serious inroads at Fox. Sally Kohn, former Soros operative at the ultra leftwing Center for Community Change, has been hired by Fox as a regular contributor.
Simpson provides the following information about the Center and Kohn:
The Center for Community Change received $5.8 million from Soros’ Open Society Institute between 2004 and 2010. Its former Board Chair is Cecilia Munoz, now President Obama’s White House director for intergovernmental affairs. Munoz is also a former National Council of La Raza vice president and former board member of the illegal immigrant advocacy group CASA de Maryland. She has been pushing housing grants to illegals in her White House position.
Sally Kohn has been a frequent guest on leftwing MSNBC host Ed Shultz’s Ed Show. She is now a regular “Fox News Contributor.” Her worldview is evident in an insufferably smug video where she explains her version of left and “right.” You guessed it: we’re all Nazis. She, on the other hand, is a “moderate.” Sure. Now Fox will actually be paying someone to promote such stuff.
This information becomes even more disturbing when viewed within the context of why Glenn Beck was forced out at Fox News. It turns out that Soros was behind it.
Cliff Kincaid at America’s Survival, and its subsidiary The Soros Files, has revealed that Soros launched a boycott against Beck’s show when he outed Van Jones as a Marxist. Undaunted, Beck proceeded to report that during the Nazi occupation of Hungary, Soros, a Jew, turned against his own people and worked with the Nazis in identifying and routing out Jewish citizens, many of whom were in hiding.
As proof of his assertions Beck presented transcripts from a 60 Minutes interview on CBS from 1998 in which Soros admitted that he collaborated with Nazis in the confiscation of Jewish property and that he had experienced no guilt about it.
At that point, an organization called ‘Jewish Funds for Justice’–a Soros funded group of leftwing Jews–issued a letter calling for Fox to sanction Beck.
Shortly afterward, it was announced that Beck would be leaving Fox News.
Early on, the astute Caroline Glick, an editor for the Jerusalem Post, wrote that the liberal American Jewish establishment:
… rejected [Beck’s] ‘outspoken attacks on George Soros,’ the ‘extremist leftist anti-American and anti-Zionist global financier who has given more than $100 million to radical leftist groups.’
Beck himself has begun to speak more openly about his final days at Fox, stating that he was told directly by management to “shut up about George Soros.“
Ironically, news reports have been circulating ever since the phone tapping scandal that hit the Murdoch empire last year that a heated behind the scenes battle is raging over the future of the network. Rupert Murdoch’s son and heir apparent, James Murdoch, is said to be decidedly more liberal than his father and is ’embarrassed’ by the conservative bent of the network.
The remedy for at least some of Fox’s troubles, according to Kincaid, is the immediate return of Glenn Beck.
