Everyone's favorite hysterical reactionary, Michelle Malkin, has many dumb things to say, all the time. This week, she took aim at Hungarian-born Jewish billionaire investor and Obama supporter George Soros, who donated $100 million to international nonprofit Human Rights Watch.
Malkin writes, "The anti-Israel bias of HRW is so brazen that liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz took to the blogosphere to denounce it," conveniently neglecting to mention that Alan Dershowitz thinks everyone who does not agree with his every thought is, in fact, a bloodthirsty anti-Semite. Malkin then directs folks to this "must-read" by Ezra Levant, which reads, in part…
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.
Levant later adds, "By collaborating with the Nazis, George survived the Holocaust. He turned on other Jews to spare himself."
Here's an exciting thought. Let's see what Soros himself actually says about that time, in a handy-dandy 1994 interview with The New Republic…
"The Jewish Council asked the little kids to hand out the deportation notices. I was told to go to the Jewish Council. And there I was given these small slips of paper. It was three or four lines. It said report to the rabbi seminary at 9 a.m. tomorrow morning. Bring a blanket and food for twenty-four hours. And I was given a list of names. I took this piece of paper to my father. He instantly recognized it, you see. This was a list of Hungarian Jewish lawyers. He said, 'You deliver the slips of paper and tell the people that if they report they will be deported.' I'm not sure to what extent he knew they were going to be gassed. I did what my father said. There was one man I shall not forget. I took it to him and told him what my father had said. He said: 'Tell your father that I am a law-abiding citizen, that I have always been a law-abiding citizen and I am not going to start breaking the law now.' And that stayed with me forever."
So, this kid, who was 14 years old at the time, collaborated with his father to give Jews potentially life-saving information about the true nature of the Nazis' intent. If any Nazis had gotten word that he and his father were tipping Jews off to their deportation, George and his father would most likely have been "deported" themselves — i.e., sent to a death camp and gassed.
That's what thinking humans would call a "risk." Some might even call it bravery. George Soros is a complex and controversial individual, but he's also an incredibly generous philanthropist. But Michelle Malkin mostly just likes to smear people, with lies and probably with poop, also. This is because she is a human poopstain. Unlike George Soros, she will never help millions of people around the world. She will just remain a poopstain, pooping her poop onto computer screens around Real AmeriKKKa. She is the doody tractor on the clean white underpants of the Internet.
