President Trumps lawyer Rudy Giuliani earlier this week upheld what has become a conservative tradition: attacking billionaire philanthropist George Soros.
Don't tell me I'm anti-Semitic if I oppose him, Giuliani, a Roman Catholic, said in an interview with New York magazine that quickly went viral. Soros is hardly a Jew. I'm more of a Jew than Soros is. I probably know more about he doesn't go to church, he doesn't go to religion synagogue.
Among those who did tell Giuliani he was, at the least, spreading anti-Semitic propaganda, was Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League.
One of the leading funders of liberal causes around the globe, Soros, 89, has given away more than $32 billion of a personal fortune amassed through investing. His net worth currently is around $8 billion.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, to Jewish parents, he survived the Nazi occupation and emigrated to England in 1947. He studied at the London School of Economics, before emigrating to the U.S. in 1956 and starting a wildly successful hedge fund. In 1979, he founded Open Society Foundations to strengthen democracy around the world.
According to the Capital Research Center, a conservative watchdog group, Soros personally sets the budget for Open Society, which has funded liberal groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International, Center for American Progress, Human Rights Campaign, Media Matters for America, MoveOn.org, Planned Parenthood and many others.
My success in the financial markets has given me a greater degree of independence than most other people, Soros wrote. This allows me to take a stand on controversial issues: In fact, it obliges me to do so because others cannot.

One sided garbage not worthy of being on FR.
Seems like a slander piece that would show up on KOS to bash Rudy.
Anti Defamation League will rock Rudy and Rudy should have not fallen into the religion trap.
It shows me he has lost too many steps and may be a liability more than an asset.
Most here know he’s one of my favorites ad ex mayor and a paesan but his day has past.
Go retire Rudy. You’re not an asset anymore
I wonder if Greenblatt knows what a sin of omission is?
... Jonathan Greenblatt introduced the ADLs Never is Now 2018 conference with a full-throated defense of George Soros. It was a strange decision for an organization that had once criticized the radical anti-Israel billionaires defenses of anti-Semitism. But under Greenblatt, a former Obama official, the ADL had turned sharply to the left and Never is Now, the ADLs big shindig, was a disturbing demonstration.
Greenblatts opening remarks at the December conference mentioned Soros twice and Israel only once.
And he did not mention Israel to defend it, but to sell out the Jewish State in defense of Soros.
If your favorite politician is attacking George Soros, the ADL boss warned, you must stand up and tell them to stop. And do so even if they profess love for Israel up and down.
Israel was less important than Soros. And thats not surprising coming from Greenblatt, who had formerly headed the Aspen Institute, which had received funding from Soros. Instead of standing up for Israel, Greenblatt was encouraging Jews to pick fights with pro-Israel politicians if they insulted Soros.
The ADL had once condemned Soros for using Israel to justify anti-Semitism, now it was all in on Soros and out on Israel.
And it got worse.
The ADL chose to invite Senator Cory Booker to hand out an award. Booker had not only betrayed Jewish voters by backing Irans nuclear program, but just that summer had been caught posing with members of an anti-Israel and pro-terrorist BDS hate group while holding up an anti-Israel sign.
In September, Booker favorably quoted Stokely Carmichael at a Senate hearing. Carmichael had infamously said, “The only good Zionist is a dead Zionist we must take a lesson from Hitler.... -——— David Greenfield
Because he certainly omitted the reason Soros ‘survived the Nazis.’
Jonathan Greenblatt, President of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) served as Special Assistant to the President and Director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation in the Domestic Policy Council for the Obama Administration, in one of the most anti-Israel administrations in history...-—— Ron Torossian
he survived the Nazi occupation
No, he was a Nazi informant, helping Nazis destroy his fellow Jews.
to strengthen democracy around the world
No, to play puppetmaster with countries economies and support tyrants and despots (like Drats).
Enemedia member Yahoo wont say THAT, eh?
Guiliani speaks the truth. Why would anyone have a problem with that?
Reminds me of many of my so called fellow Trump supporters who wish he’d not post on Social Media because it makes them cringe. I love it.
Rudy has been an asset and will continue to be so long after people like us are gone (and have never had the impact he has had).
“Seems like a slander piece that would show up on KOS to bash Rudy.”
“It shows me he has lost too many steps and may be a liability more than an asset”
“Go retire Rudy. Youre not an asset anymore”
And you’re wondering about Guiliani’s mental state and ability?
The Jewish community has to come clean and point out that soroznazi himself vehemently denies any Jewish faith or allegiance.
WHat a way of reversing the story. Soros has been targetting free speech and independent media ever since his Nazi stint in Hungary....
Indeed, Sorros is the exact character that the Golem had been created for to crush, a vicious jewish collaborator of a tyrant persecuting his own people of the ghetto, and he hated them himself so much his zeal in persecuting people of the ghetto even surpassed that of the demands of the Czech King himself...
American liberal jews once again abandon their fellow jews letting this Yahoo news nonsense go on.
Addressing the Yahoo headline: “Giuliani’s attack on Soros shows the liberal Jewish billionaire remains a top conservative target”
He’s a target by every decent Republic, and Constitution loving American citizen.
The spin is strong in this one. DNC talking point regurgitation. Anyone who refers to the felon Soros as a "billionaire philathropist" doesn't belong in media.
Partisan Media Shills update.
Did someone say “target” ? There ya go , that’s the ticket. He needs to have a substantial bounty on his head....
Osama bin Laden’s main job was to be a conduit for money from wealthy Islamics to jihadi groups, while keeping hidden the real sources of the funding.
Similarly, I suspect Soros is just a front man for others who prefer to remain hidden.
Giuliani’s attack on Soros shows the Third Reich Nazi supporting, liberal Jewish billionaire remains a top conservative target
Why has Soros not been tried as a Nazi war criminal?
