    Anderson Cooper has lost all credibility in a new clip where he claimed that George Soros was not a Nazi collaborator despite the fact Soros has admitted it himself.

    CNN Achieves Ultimate Fake News Status, Claims George Soros Was Not A Nazi Collaborator

    Anderson Copper lies, lies, lies...

    ADDED:  Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stated on CNN Sunday that she thinks Trump voters need to be told that they are being "snookered."  ......  LOL

      George Soros was born in 1930. He was nine years old when WWII erupted. The Nazis occupied Hungary for only 10 months and Germany was defeated when Soros was 14. He was a full time elementary school student at that time, the equivalent of an eighth grader in the USA.

      The OP and the renowned conspiracy theory merchant Alex Jones would like us to believe that this Jewish child was a hard-core collaborator! The accusation is not new. It has been around for decades and in all of that time the only evidence ever offered to support this claim is the 60 Minutes interview.

      During that interview, George Soros did not admit to being a Nazi collaborator as falsely claimed in the OP statement. Soros said yes specifically in response to Steve Kroft's statement that “you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson … went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews," not that he confiscated property himself. He did go on to say he had no role in the seizure of property and was merely a spectator but that portion of Soros' reply to Steve Kroft is omitted from Jones' heavily edited version on YouTube.

      In his book Soros: The Life and Times of a Messianic Billionaire, biographer Michael T. Kaufman writes:

      "This is what actually happened. Shortly after George went to live with Baumbach, the man was assigned to take inventory on the vast estate of Mor Kornfeld, an extremely wealthy aristocrat of Jewish origin. The Kornfeld family had the wealth, wisdom, and connections to be able to leave some of its belongings behind in exchange for permission to make their way to Lisbon. Baumbach was ordered to go to the Kornfeld estate and inventory the artworks, furnishings, and other property. Rather than leave his "godson" behind in Budapest for three days, he took the boy with him. As Baumbach itemized the material, George walked around the grounds and spent time with Kornfeld's staff. It was his first visit to such a mansion, and the first time he rode a horse. He collaborated with no one and he paid attention to what he understood to be his primary responsibility: making sure that no one doubted that he was Sandor Kiss. Among his practical concerns was to make sure that no one saw him pee." {1}

    Oh, the irony of a Trump supporter expressing concern about credibility. And then topping it off with a "he has lost it" comment.

    Always good for a chuckle. The mentally ill, pathological liar in the highest office in the land gets a pass, while the Trumpeter zeroes in on ....what?

    CNN’s Anderson Cooper accused Infowars founder Alex Jones of fabricating a connection between billionaire investor George Soros and Nazis.

    In a December 20, 1998 broadcast of 60 Minutes, Soros detailed his experience while in Nazi-occupied Hungary, describing a “protector” who confiscated property from Jews.

    George Soros Interview 60 Minutes [FULL]
    * … SyczwuTQfo

    60 Minutes: You’re a Hungarian Jew…
    Soros: Mm-hmm.
    60 Minutes: Who escaped the Holocaust…
    Soros: Mm-hmm.
    60 Minutes: By — by posing as a Christian.
    Soros: Right.
    60 Minutes: And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.
    Soros: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.
    60 Minutes: In what way?
    Soros: That one should think ahead. One should understand and — and anticipate events and when — when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a — a very personal experience of evil.
    60 Minutes: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.
    Soros: Yes. Yes.
    60 Minutes: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

    Soros: Yes. That’s right. Yes.
    60 Minutes: I mean, that’s — that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
    Soros: Not — not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t — you don’t see the connection. But it was — it created no — no problem at all.
    60 Minutes: No feeling of guilt?
    Soros: No.
    60 Minutes: For example that, ‘I’m Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.’ None of that?
    Soros: Well, of course I — I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was — well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets — that if I weren’t there — of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would — would — would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the — whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the — I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.

    While Soros appears to back peddle in his final comment – and although he may not have been willfully involved – Soros’ remarks make clear his role in joining a Hungarian bureaucrat named Baumbach as he confiscated property. … nazi-ties/

    What a way to have your character made at age 14, admittedly collaborating with Nazis. 

    ADDED:   According to Soros’ father, as stated in his 1965 autobiography, “Masquerade: Dancing Around Death in Nazi Occupied Hungary,” Soros at one point “even helped with the inventory.”

      Anyone who reads Alex Jones and uses him as a source of information has very limited intellectual capacity.

        Anyone who doesn't realize the SOURCE is George Soros' own words on 60 Minutes might be what you are attempting to project on others.

        "very limited intellectual capacity"

        Added:  The Hungarian government minister András Aradszki told the country’s parliament that is was a ‘Christian duty to struggle against the Satanic Soros Plan’, and defend against assaults on faith, Europe, and the family.

        Its become a spiritual battle, pick your side.  Oh, I guess maybe you have.

          Just curious, was it Alex Jones’ “Christian duty” to call parents whose children were just murdered liars?

    Maybe just readily assuming that Alex Jones fabricates everything is kind of like the boy who cried wolf except with a grown man crying conspiracy theories and bulls***.  He’s done it so many times that people have just started assuming everything he says is a figment of his sadistic imagination.

    For what it’s worth, Alex Jones has lost any shred of credibility he may have ever had (I’m not convinced there ever was any) a million times over so for you to still be eating up whatever he says while disparaging Anderson Cooper is yet another indication that you are, in fact, a massive hypocrite who is unable to look at anything without immense bias clouding your judgment.

    Once you use a link to Alex Jones, you reveal a very sad side of your humanity.

    The liberal media, corrupt politicians and Hellywood attack Alex Jones all the time because he is a threat to their fake narratives and exposes them for what they are.  Its no wonder they attack him so!  That's ok though, because it works against them because smart people who aren't so brainwashed by them, actually go and check out Alex Jones and research facts for themselves and find out for themselves.  The more  Alex is attacked the stronger his network grows.  The attacks backfire! 

    Its an information war, that's why its called Infowars.
    Have a lovely day!

      I am not part of the media, a politician, or a celebrity. I am an individual capable of independent thoughts, with the ability to form my own opinions about people and the world.

      And I think Alex Jones is an absolute disgrace.

      While you’re boasting about not being brainwashed by liberal media it appears you’ve unfortunately gone way in the other direction. You got got.

    Anderson Copper accused Alex of fabricating the story that Soros has ties to the Nazis.

    Soros admitted his tie to Nazis by the age of 14 on 60 minutes.

    Anderson Copper is the one that is full of it!  Take the blinders off.

      Okay, I watched the clip.

      First of all, the quote that doesn’t mesh with the 60 Minutes Interview was not made by Anderson Cooper.  He was, very clearly, reading a quote by a spokesperson for Soros.  It said as much right on the screen and Cooper himself said out loud that it was a quote from a spokesperson.

      Secondly, he isn’t suggesting that Alex Jones fabricated the bit about Soros hanging out with Nazis when he was a kid.  He suggested that the theory that Soros is currently funding Neo-Nazi rallies was put forth by Alex Jones.

      Context is kind of important sometimes.

      I think Alex Jones probably gets attacked because nothing he says is true. Do you buy his products too? Didn't Jones promote that Pizzagate thing? No respectably intelligent person would ever watch Alex Jones or take him seriously. That's just kind of a fact. Or, I guess, you could be intelligent, but just crazy, though I don't know if a crazy person can be truly intelligent. I suppose if you compartmentalize a bit, it's possible.

    Congressman Paul Gosar says he believes that Soros is funding Neo-Nazis who marched on Charlottesville. 

    Hey, I don't know.  Could be true, could be false.  Does Anderson Copper know, or Alex Jones?
