FACT CHECK: Rep. Louie Gohmert is Right About George Soros

The media has lately decided that George Soros, a deeply controversial and polarizing figure who funds much of the American Left, should be above criticism, and that any investigation or criticism of him, whether by elected officials, by companies or private citizens, is a hate crime.

That’s pernicious nonsense.

Soros, like every other person, is not above criticism.

The latest firestorm was touched off by Rep. Louie Gohmert referencing Soros’ alleged Nazi wartime collaboration. Gohmert’s response to the media firestorm was to link to the video of George Soros’ own 60 Minutes interview describing his attitude and behavior during the Holocaust.

“Soros himself admitted in a 60 Minutes interview with Steve Kroft on December 20, 1998 that he had no regrets whatsoever about assisting the Nazis in confiscating property from the Jewish people during the Holocaust. That is a fact. Any person with any sense of empathy for their fellow human beings would regret the part they played in confiscating Jewish property during the Holocaust. My remarks were not anti-Semitic. Even the Israeli government has condemned Soros. They were about the horror of his lack of remorse over his actions. It was a pro-Jewish statement on my part and supportive of the statement that the Israeli government made last year that anti-Soros statements are not anti-Semitic because George Soros ‘continuously undermines Israel’s democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself.’”

That video is still the most damning piece of evidence against Soros. And the media can’t make it go away. The interview is bad. Really bad.
