QuoteGeorge Schwartz was born in Hungary in 1930 ? not the luckiest time and place to be born a Jew.George?s father Theodore tried to change the family?s fortunes by changing their name to something less Jewish-sounding. It didn?t help. And soon war came.When the Nazis took total control of Hungary in 1944, the Holocaust followed. In two months, 440,000 Hungarian Jews were deported to death camps.To survive, George, then a teenager, collaborated with the Nazis.First he worked for the Judenrat. That was the Jewish council set up by the Nazis to do their dirty work for them. Instead of the Nazis rounding up Jews every day for the trains, they delegated that murderous task to Jews who were willing to do it to survive another day at the expense of their neighbours.Theodore hatched a better plan for his son. He bribed a non-Jewish official at the agriculture ministry to let George live with him. George helped the official confiscate property from Jews.By collaborating with the Nazis, George survived the Holocaust. He turned on other Jews to spare himself.George moved to London after the war and then to New York, where he became a stockbroker. He?s rich now. Forbes magazine says he?s the 35th richest man in the world. Maybe you?ve heard of him. He goes by the name his father invented: George Soros.How does Soros feel about what he did as a teenager? Has it kept him up at night?Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes asked him that. Was it difficult? ?Not at all,? Soros answered.?No feeling of guilt?? asked Kroft. ?No,? said Soros. ?There was no sense that I shouldn?t be there. If I wasn?t doing it, somebody else would be taking it away anyhow. Whether I was there or not. So I had no sense of guilt.?A Nazi would steal the Jews? property anyways. So why not him?That moral hollowness has shaped Soros? life. He?s a rabid critic of capitalism, but in 1992 when he saw a chance, he speculated against the British pound, causing it to crash, devastating retirement savings for millions of Britons. Soros pocketed $1.1 billion for himself. If he didn?t do it, someone else would, right?In 2002, Soros was convicted of insider trading in France, and fined millions of dollars. He admitted buying the shares, but denied it was a crime.Last year, when he made $3.3 billion off the banking collapse, he called the world?s financial crisis ?the culmination of my life?s work.?This is a man who boasted he offered to help his mother commit suicide. Apparently he didn?t see enough death in Hungary.Soros is a sociopath. But he?s a sociopath with $14 billion, and he likes to spend it on politics.Sometimes his gifts are large, like the $24 million he spent in 2004, trying to defeat George W. Bush. Sometimes they?re small, like $20,000 to a woman convicted of helping terrorists.Now Soros has turned his attention to Canada.One of his front groups, called Avaaz, is lobbying to stop Sun Media?s license for a TV news channel. Soros doesn?t know anything about Canada ? Avaaz called the Sun newspapers the ?Suncor newspapers? ? but we?re his latest toy.Avaaz is sending a petition to Canada?s TV regulator, the CRTC, claiming that thousands of Canadians want to censor the Sun and keep it off the air.The petition is a fraud ? it?s an Internet petition, and anyone can sign anyone else up without their permission. Fake names are permitted, and so are foreign citizens. And the whole campaign is run out of New York.Do you think Soros should determine what you can watch on TV? Do you think that decision should be made in New York? Is our freedom of speech just another trinket for him to buy and sell?Hasn?t Soros silenced enough voices in his life?Fight back.The Jewish Nazi

Is he guilty of human rights abuses like the Saudi Royal family?I thought you said you grew up in a culture that encouraged the use of reason. To me it sounds like you just have your head stuck up your ass.

Because you have claimed HRW is discredited by the nature of their donors. (At least you do when it suits you to make that spurious argument.) Can we now assume you are retracting that?QuoteIs he guilty of human rights abuses like the Saudi Royal family?I don't know. But Israel is.QuoteI thought you said you grew up in a culture that encouraged the use of reason.Yes. And you apparently didn't.QuoteTo me it sounds like you just have your head stuck up your ass.That's because you mistakenly think I'm like you.

I would go for a more Pinteresque
Step over the gap, not into it. Watch the space between platform and train.
