At least eight staff members of a US government-funded media company that broadcasts in Cuba have been fired for airing a segment that referred to George Soros as a “multimillionaire Jew” who was “the architect of the financial collapse of 2008”:
The three-part report on Radio and Television Marti, which broadcasts news to Cuba to promote American foreign policy interests, also called Soros a “left-wing billionaire of Hungarian-Jewish origin” and a “nonpracticing Jew of flexible morals” and raised far-right conspiracy theories about him.
The original broadcast aired in May; it gained traction at the end of October when a blog on Cuban issues, The Cuban Triangle, raised questions about the broadcast after Soros received a bomb threat.
The firings come after a months-long investigation by the Office of Cuba Broadcasting, which oversees the Marti stations, the Miami Herald reported. The office falls under the jurisdiction of the US Agency for Global Media, or USAGM.
John Lansing, director of the USAGM, issued a statement Wednesday which said the report should have never aired.
The report was “a blatantly anti-Semitic video segment about George Soros that was deeply offensive and wholly inconsistent with our professional standards and ethics. OCB should have never aired it,” Lansing said in the statement.
Soros, a Holocaust survivor and philanthropist who funds liberal and pro-democracy causes, has been a frequent target of the far right in the United States and abroad, who often invoke anti-Semitic tropes to exaggerate his influence in politics and economic affairs.
You can say George Soros is a wealthy, altruistic philanthropist who works for the betterment of society, but you can’t say he’s a wealthy Jew who funds radical liberal causes that undermine the fabric of western culture — that would be antisemitc whether it’s true or not. Just because something is true doesn’t mean that it can’t be antisemitic. In fact, if it’s true, chances are it will be very antisemitic, which is why censorship is so important.
Soros has spent hundreds of millions of dollars supporting radical left-wing causes, and to point that out isn’t antisemitic until you dare to suggest that his support is anything less than desirable. Jewish wealth and influence is absolutely a taboo subject because Jews worry that the goyim might “misinterpret” the meaning of it. After all, one of the most common antisemtic “canards” is that Jews are “wealthy” and “influential” rather than poor and self-sacrificing. Where would people get such an inaccurate portrait of the jewish people?
I’ve notice that “white” Cubans, the ones at the top of the food chain in Cuba, can be antisemitic and “racist”. Given what they’ve lived through with jewish communism, you’d think the average Cuban would be more wary of Jews, but most probably don’t know the connection between communism and Jews.
Many of our own White people in America don’t have that realization either, Chesterton, although they should by now have had the observation skills to know it without having it pointed out to them.
“…[O]ne of MacArthur’s most trusted men] appeared before the Special Committee on Un-American Activities, U.S. House of Representatives – also known as the Dies Committee – on May 31 and June 1, 1939. The subject that Moseley addressed in his testimony was, for the most part, the Jewish involvement in communism and the subversion of the White countries by Jews.
Immediately after Moseley testified, all of his words were stricken from the Congressional Record – a rather unusual action given Moseley’s professional status.
“[… it must be noted that the British White Paper referred to, was followed by a revised White Paper, omitting entirely the reference to the role of Jews in Bolshevism.]”
General George Moseley:
“Whether it is right or wrong, the Jews must bring themselves to the realization that the one hundred twenty millions of people composing this nation are not going to be run by Jews, in whole or in part.”
“In a few days, I am speaking in the Middle West. A letter comes this morning telling me that the Jews are moving heaven and earth to prevent it. They have done that several times before. They have gone so far as to threaten me with bodily harm. Do the Jews think that that makes for friendship towards them?”
“As already stated, this Committee has heretofore found to what high places in the Government, Communism has penetrated. It is interesting to note how many of these individuals, also, are members of, or connected with, organized Jewry.”
“Consequently, it is self-evident that those Jews who affiliate with organized World Jewry and thereby accept the status of being its nationals, as proclaimed by Brandeis, should be denied office-holding, suffrage and all other citizenship rights in the American Republic, just the same as we would deny such right to nationals of Nazi Germany or any other Nation or Nationality.”
And in the very same jewish periodical, we find their own report assessing the ongoing results of beating that dead anti-semitic horse…
I wonder if the video can be found online so we can archive it…
