The leftist-jihadist alliance is the gift that keeps on giving… to the jihadists. The leftists may think they can leverage the global victim culture that besets Muslim countries to their advantage, particularly by appropriating it into the Marxist narrative, but do not take into account that their allies for now have their own designs as well.
“Soros Critics Muzzled, Beck Says,” from The Soros Files, February 3:
“I paid a huge, huge price for going after George Soros,” Glenn Beck told Richard Poe last week. “But I ain’t dead. And quite honestly, I thought that was an option. “¦ I said on the air, at one point, if I show up dead, check Soros!”
Beck chatted with Shadow Party co-author Richard Poe in a satellite interview on GBTV, January 31. They discussed the strange reluctance of U.S. media to criticize Soros; explored Soros” peculiar hostility toward the United States; and scrutinized Soros” neocolonial approach to the Muslim world.
The transcript follows below (video here):
BECK: We have Richard Poe. He is the co-author of Shadow Party”¦ his other co-author is David Horowitz, a man I greatly, greatly respect, and Richard Poe has done so much amazing work on George Soros. Can you tell me, Richard, first of all, why is no one looking into George Soros? Why is this “˜class warfare” on everybody else except for George Soros?
POE: Glenn, I would suspect that what happened to you when you went after George Soros may have a lot to do with that, because, probably, of anybody on network television, you (when you were on Fox News) went after George Soros more thoroughly and more definitively and giving a lot more details about his covert operations overseas (which is the part of the story that is usually not told), you did more of that than, I think, anyone has ever done on network television. And I don’t know the inside story like you do, but it appears to me and I think it probably appears to a lot of people in the media and out of the media that you got punished for that. Now maybe that’s not true but that’s how it looked from the outside.
BECK: Oh, I think I paid a huge, huge price for going after George Soros. But I ain’t dead. And quite honestly, I thought that was an option. You go after, you know, I”ve seen movies before and I thought, if I die, I think I said on the air, at one point, if I show up dead, check Soros! But I didn’t die. I paid a huge price, but I”m going on and I think we are, you know, Richard, I believe we”ve spoken about what we”re working on, on another exposÃ© of George Soros and what he’s doing now. He’s a guy who seems to either frighten everyone or control everyone. Am I wrong?
POE: He has tremendous influence and he is a very thin-skinned person by nature (I”ve observed, I”ve learned) and he seems to have a lot of powerful friends in the government, in the intelligence community, in all kinds of walks of life, and a great willingness to use his connections for personal ends. He does not like to be criticized and I have been astonished, in the few years that I have been taking little digs at him (in my own little way), I have been astonished at the extent to which he will react when he is criticized”¦
BECK: Oh yeah.
POE: “¦even if someone so small as little “˜ol me does something.”
BECK: Yeah, it’s incredible.
POE: He will react. […]
POE: …He has a very well-developed theory of how the world should work. He believes, of course, in globalism “” although sometimes he denies that he believes in globalism. He believes that we should create a new, essentially a central bank for the entire world, which issues a global currency, which would replace the dollar as the dominant currency on earth. He has written this in his books. He has a very, very clearly laid out plan for globalizing the planet. And a big part of this plan, one might even say the biggest part of this plan, as he states very clearly, is to break the power of the United States which he sees as the one force which is strong enough, and stubborn enough, and sufficiently in love with its own independence, to try to stop this from happening.
BECK: Is he a guy who is so naÃ¯ve that he really thinks that he can get into bed with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic world? Is he using them? Or are they using him? Or do they both think we”ll use each other temporarily and then we”ll off the other? We”ll split the world, or whatever? How does he think he’s going to fare with the Islamic world afterwards? I don’t think he”ll fit into sharia finance real well.
POE: No, I don’t imagine he would, but I would guess that — I can only guess — but I would guess that Mr. Soros and people like him, the sort of people who are gathering now at the Davos World Economic Forum in Switzerland to make these plans for globalization, as we speak, these sorts of people see the Muslim world very much as the old colonial powers used to see it. You can read books that were written during the era of the French Empire and the British Empire, both of which ruled large Muslim populations, and they used to talk about how to manage the Muslims, almost the way you”d manage a type of livestock”¦
POE: “¦that they”re useful for this, sometimes they”re useful for that. Yes, sometimes they get very fanatical and you have to crack down on them, but you can use them to keep other people under control. And you can actually read these books. Many of them are still in print today. Manuals of colonialism. And I think the elites, like Soros today, are still reading from that book, that old book of colonialism and thinking, well, the Muslims are just a part of our kingdom. They”re just a segment of our, they”re subjects of our empire and they have certain uses. We can use them for this, or we can not use them for that. The Muslims, on the other hand, those who are true believers, they see this, they see everything that happens to their advantage, as the hand of Providence, as the hand of Allah. They don’t care what Soros and people like that think when they help them. They say, look, the infidels are helping us. Allah has made them mad. He’s brought them into our hands. And so, at one point or another, these forces will collide. Certainly.
