To the editor:

Having just read Michael Callis’ letter condoning George Soros, I felt the need to respond. Michael needs to listen to Steve Croft’s interview of Soros.

On “60 Minutes,” he admits to turning in fellow Jews to the Nazis and not feeling badly about it knowing they were going to concentration camps. Then just do a search for the groups that Soros funds and then when you see it is Black Lives Matter and other terrorist groups, reconsider your opinion of him.

For any of you obsessed with Soros conspiracy theories, please check out this link at Snopes.com for its thorough examination explanation of the discredited accusation that George Soros was behind the Ferguson protests:

Also, you should not trust what you read in the Washington Times. Here is an excerpt from the Wikipedia entry :

"The Washington Times was founded on May 17, 1982, by Unification movement leader Sun Myung Moon and owned until 2010 by News World Communications, an international media conglomerate founded by Moon. It is currently owned by Operations Holdings, which is owned by the Unification movement.

Throughout its history, The Washington Times has been known for its conservative political stance. It has published many columns which reject the scientific consensuses on climate change, on ozone depletion, and on the harmful effects of second-hand smoke. It has drawn controversy for publishing racist content, including commentary and conspiracy theories about U.S. President Barack Obama, supporting neo-Confederate historical revisionism, and promoting Islamophobia."

You should listen to this guy in other countries in his own language. Soros loves to manipulate people, currencies and situations and he has no love for the black race and those are not fox reports or Trump supporters but his own words. The phrase he used was “ Ignorant and so easy to manipulate.” Watch some German Television.

I find it very disheartening when people take a real event and construe the facts. On the 60 minute piece if you actually watch it, he admits that he was a 14 year old boy Jew that had a "Godfather" that provided documents saying he was Christian. This so-called Godfather was engaged in usurping property that was left behind by the Jews that were being sent to concentration camps. This may not be considered a very moral practice but he was not turning them into the authorities as some right wing news reports may claim. The same is true for BLM. It is not a terrorist organization.

George Soros has been funding far left groups all his life.

Michael callis

I watched the sixty minutes interview and george Soros was a young teenager when suffering from nazi occupation.

He was kept from being imprisoned by his non jewish benefactor.

Soros would accompany him when he would take an inventory of Jewish estates that had been confiscated.

The only mention of soros turning in jews to nazis is Glenn becks interpretation of interview.

Also the anti semitic lies where spread by fox celebrity broadcasters and Trump supporters.

The fact is Jews where able to get back valuable items especially paintings because of inventories written down.

Soros does donate money to black lives matters and so do many other charities including the Ford foundation.

The idea that black lives matter is terrorist organization is spread by fans listening to fox talking celebrities and Trump followers.

So sad.

Black lives matter!!!

"Buses of activists from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in Chicago; from the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York and Equal Justice USA from New York; from Sojourners, the Advancement Project and Center for Community Change in Washington; and networks from the Gamaliel Foundation — all funded in part by Mr. Soros — descended on Ferguson starting in August and later organized protests and gatherings in the city until late last month."

Soros funded progressive groups that paid and bussed rioters and looters to Ferguson. The result was the destruction of businesses and private property in the black community of Ferguson. The majority of the arrests were people who didn't live there.

Why are you defending a white convicted felon billionaire that uses 401k nonprofits to cause civil unrest to gain power? Why do you support the paid riots that only hurt the black community?

Black lives matter is not labeled, officially or unofficially, a terrorist group. You are either misinformed or intentionally making false accusations to suit your political agenda.ignorance is bliss as the saying goes.

I don't see an edit button. My post should have said "a 14 year old Jewish boy" and "not 14 year old boy Jew."
