Glenn Beck Fails History Regarding George Soros

Glenn Beck, the prominent conservative radio host, has a lot to say about a lot of people. Lately, that person has been George Soros. It’s interesting Beck has chosen this figure. For example, did you know a birthday party for Soros was held in the summer of 2015? Here, Lord Mark Malloch Brown toasted to the health of Soros. Lord Brown confidently stated there were four people who helped defeat communism: Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and George Soros. That’s a pretty heady compliment. You would think Beck, a fervent American patriot, would have similar praises for Soros. He does not. Instead, he claims Soros is responsible for the collapse of governments through a global conspiracy Soros is able to maintain through vast wealth and investments.

Does Mr. Beck realize irony of his statement? If Soros truly is able to bring down governments, his track record shows they are the very governments Beck would presumably despise. If this is the case, why is Beck grumbling about Soros? It would seem he is attempting to level the charge that Soros is anti-Semetic. After all, it’s been reported that in Hungary, the homeland of George Soros Nazi, being called “omnipotent” and “able to bring down whole governments” is code on the far right for being anti-Semitic. That is the charge Beck seems to be leveling at Soros. The only problem with that accusation is that it doesn’t even pass the laugh test.

Glenn Beck’s Ridiculous Misreading of George Soros Might Not Be As Inappropriate As Busting a 14-Year-Old’s Balls for How He Behaved During the Holocaust, But It Still Sets Back the Cause of Human Understanding

George Soros – Forbes

When Soros was 14, he lived in Nazi occupied Hungary. Soros acted as a messenger for the elders of the Budapest Jewish Council. He would deliver important information to the elders regarding various collection points around the city. Prompted by his father, Soros urged the Jews to resist. He recognized there was no way being docile and obedient would ultimately bring safety. But his advice fell on deaf ears. Soros once related the words of one of the elders. After repeating the fervent advice of his father to rebel and disobey, the Jewish elder said, “Tell your father that I am a law-abiding citizen, that I have always been a law-abiding citizen and that I am not going to start breaking the law now.” The sad result is few of those Jews who wished to remain law-abiding citizens survived the unfolding horrors in Hungary. Rather, it was the resourceful who bribed, hid, and deceived who were able to escape the nightmare.

How can Beck subtly claim such a man as Soros is anti-Semitic? Soros acted as an informant to aid the persecuted Jews, and he encouraged them to defy and rebel. Surely, had the Jews done so, Soros would have helped in any way he could. It’s tragic for Beck to be launching into a tirade about Soros when Beck clearly isn’t aware of Soros’s own history.

Beck is not an isolated voice in the wilderness. He is wealthy, and he has millions of devoted listeners. It is time for those listeners to have the record set straight. Let’s hope this message reaches them.

Good Deeds Don’t Go Unnoticed

We all know what it is like trying to get by from payday to payday. Most of have had to count quarters and even sometimes pennies to get enough gas to get to work until payday. If you have ever been in that situation you have probably thought to yourself how nice it would be if someone would just throw a couple gallons in the tank for us out of the kindness of the hearts, but many of us do not expect it nor do we receive it. This was not the case for one lucky woman recently though. She was in a gas station in Georgia and was having a conversation with her fiance about how she was trying to scrape up enough money to get home stated About.Me . The conversation was overheard by an off duty officer who paid for $10 in gas and left the scene before the woman could express her gratitude. He deed did not go unnoticed though, she reached out to the department via their Facebook page and the deputy’s identity was quickly revealed to all.

Give the Future a Hand

Medical teams have made numerous advancements when it comes to artificial limbs for patients. One patient just received one the most advanced aesthetics in the history of medicine. The 26 year old was given the bionic hand by the United Kingdom’s Steeper Group which marketed the hand as being the anatomically accurate in the world. The hand gives Nicki Ashwell an unparalleled sense of precision along with natural hand movements. The patient was even able to ride a bike for the first time thanks to her bionic hand. While the group has credited Ashwell with being the first person to benefit from the use of the bionic hand, she certainly won’t be the last. Sensors in the hand detect even the smallest muscle movements from the patient’s arm. Ricardo Tosto finds this pretty interesting.

 

These detections will instruct the 337 mechanical parts of the bionic hand to bend at the users will. The bionic hand also includes 14 styles of grips that imitate natural hand movements that take place in the skeletal system. The mechanics that are used to make the bionic arm can be seen being used in Formula One race cars. Ashwell was born without a right arm and could not believe how many possibilities opened up for her after she received the bionic arm. Even with the bionic hand costing $11,000 Ashwell and other patients believe that the opportunities that they can experience after the procedure are worth every penny.
