Glenn Beck spent the past week denouncing the liberal billionaire and philanthropist George Soros as a "puppet master" who is orchestrating a coup "to bring America to her knees."This news is very interesting since it follows Beck's week-long exposé about Soros. To give you an idea of just what the right-wing think of Soros, the conservative Economic Policy Journal blog wrote an article about Glenn Beck targeting Soros in the past and they called him an "evil bastard global control freak." That message hasn't really changed over the past year.
Given Soros' alleged role plotting to destroy the United States, Beck and his Fox viewership might be surprised to learn that one of Sarah Palin's top aides has been on Soros' payroll for years.
That would be Republican lobbyist Randy Scheunemann, Palin's foreign policy adviser and a member of her small inner circle. He runs a Washington, D.C., consulting firm called Orion Strategies. Scheunemann and a partner have since 2003 been paid over $150,000 by one of Soros' organizations for lobbying work, according to federal disclosure forms reviewed by Salon. The lobbying, which has continued to the present, centers on legislation involving sanctions and democracy promotion in Burma.
Beck's website, The Blaze, was full of Soros articles, but what his website didn't have was one describing the association between the Alaskan Claptrap and his arch-nemesis.
Of course Beck wouldn't disclose that, it would undermine the whole expose. Not that he did undermine it himself in the first part, when he basically declared it a vendetta.ReplyDelete
