Glenn Beck under fire holocaust George Soros ‘Jewish Boy’ comment. Fox News Channel anchor Glenn Beck came under fire for making a holocaust remark. Beck called billionaire financier George Soros a “Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps.”
The Anti-Defamation League is criticizing the remark made by Glenn Beck about George Soros and the Holocaust. The conservative pundit described Soros this week as a “Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps.” But he also said he can’t imagine what it must have been like trying to survive.
Beck has been known to criticize the billionaire financier during his broadcasts. Soros survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary and donates to liberal causes. ADL National Director Abraham Foxman says Beck’s remarks about Soros’ childhood were “inappropriate, offensive and over the top.”
However, Foxman later said he still believes Beck is a strong supporter of Israel and the Jewish people. A Beck spokesman cited an Oct. 22 letter from Foxman praising Beck as a “friend of Israel.” The letter was posted Friday on Beck’s website.
