Washington - Rep. Louie Gohmert spouted off against George Soros, questioning whether the liberal financier is Jewish and suggesting that he betrayed Jews during the Holocaust.

Gohmert, a Texas Republican who is not Jewish, brought up Soros during an unrelated segment Thursday on the Fox Business Network. He and host Stuart Varney were discussing Google and George Orwell.

“It also reminds me of another George, George Soros, because Google is born in a free country and then they go over and oppress others, help oppress, in other countries,” Gohmert said. “George Soros is supposed to be Jewish, but you wouldn’t know it from the damage he’s inflicted on Israel and the fact that he turned on fellow Jews and helped take the property that they owned.”
Soros, a major supporter of liberal causes, has become a popular villain on the far right. Gohmert’s statements echo accusations from Soros’ critics of his funding for left-wing and human rights groups in Israel, and unfounded allegations that he collaborated with Nazis as a Jewish teen in Hungary during the Holocaust. Soros, who was 13 in 1944, survived the Holocaust in the care of a Hungarian official whose job included taking inventory of confiscated Jewish-owned property.

The Anti-Defamation League called on Gohmert to retract his statement.

“Abhorrent that a sitting Congressman propagated debunked Soros conspiracies,” the group tweeted. “Rep. Gohmert should retract his remarks immediately. This rhetoric is common in extreme far-right circles & perpetuates anti-Semitism.”

Gohmert doubled down on his statement in a letter Thursday to Soros’ Open Society Foundations, writing “Any person with any sense of empathy for his fellow human beings would regret the part they played in assisting the Nazis.”

Soros was a 13 year old Holocaust survivor. Shame on all Republicans and their voters. This Anti semite Gohmert was a White Neo Nazi Supremacist when Soros was a survivor boy. No wonder that Pittsburgh MAGA Mass murder of Jews happened under them. Let see if the POTUS will publicly denounce this Nazi or he is just one of his fine people.

The alt-white conspiracy theory vs Soros which has NO basis in fact is used against all Jews by the right wing GOP. Its normal now to throw around this trash from 'info wars' and other nazi conspiracy media. When they attack Soros they attack every Jew, unless you re too dumb to realize it.

Soros massored on his fellow Jews and thus had them killed and their property taken away. Forgive me for being harsh but I would rather be married to a goy than one of his relatives.

Slander against Soros (who I'm not a fan of) echoes millenia-old conspiracy theories against Jews. Not helpful. Also, Gohmert is extremely reckless with his mouth in general. You can be against Soros without taking it to this level.

Why is Louie Gohmert saying this? I would have supposed this was sort of intramural. Are the affairs of Jews somehow his business?

Unfortunately there were Jews complicit in helping the Nazis . Their success in Hungary hinged on Jewish traitors as the Nazis were loosing . There were kapos who were not such tzadakim too . Some were shinea yidden after the war . Soros was similar . Those are the facts . True he was young but so what .

No: Trump will not denounce him because he and most real Jews agree with Gomert, Soros is a evil human being.

If you hate Jews or are a self-hating Jew you hate Mr. Soros who is the subject of a 30 year blood libel by neo nazi conspirators. If you're a kapo you hate Soros. That truth hurts.

You are right. you should rather get married to a goy, than his relative. Do you understand what a Jewish Neshomeh means? What Tshuvah means.? Even if 100% some say about Soros is True (In fact note a single one is) if he has a relative who did Tshuvah he/she is the same level than any Frumm Jew in Lakewood or Wili or Jerusalem. If you are not jewish do us a favor and marie another Goy. If you are Jewish please visit a Chabad House or Ais Torah and learn some Jewish laws.

Soros and his likeminded liberal friends did more for Yiddischkeits than all American Rabbis, Rosh Yeshivas, Rebbelach combined. They supported through HIAS, JOINT and the Federation all Jewish lives in Hungary, Rumania, Russia, Chehslovakia, Jugoslavia and many many other countrys. 100.000's immigrated to America after the war untill the late 70's and today they are the bastion of american Frumm Yiden. Ask any boy in Lakewood, Satmar, Agudah and even many YU types where their Grandparents are from who suppoerted them with sidurim, tefilin, food, clothing etc. FYI: Not Chabad Not Satmar or Agudah Not Young Israel. The HIAS and Joint ant othes Soros supported institutions. You are Kofu Tov.

"Their success in Hungary hinged on Jewish traitors." You are Unintelligent Hungarian Jew Hater. Its a well know historical Fact than in Hungary the Germans were the least successful from other German occupied countries like Poland, etc. You are just jealous of the Hungarian Jews from Soros to Satmar that they actually survived in much bigger numbers than their Polish and other counter parts. You also must be jealous that they are much more successful than others, Satmar has grown exponantly and most Jewish Billioners are Hungarians.

"Helping Nazis" Here we go again. In the Warsaw Ghetto Jews with guns, less than 1% survived, In the Budapest Ghetto close to 50%" Just like Soros the Hungarian Jews are SMARTER. What you preaching is just pure JEALOUSY. Less than 2 monts ago Kavanaugh (Jemach shmaj )hearing you preached that no one knows at age 23 in collage whats right or wrong. Now you are worried at age 9 in the middle of the Holocaust what he did. Are you sinking that low that you are jelous that we Hungarian Jews were bigger survivors and more successful here in the USA? That is why you are against Hungarians on the Left (Soros) and Right (Satmar) and all Hungarians between?

It's only a myth in the twisted minds of left wing kooks like you and crazy Hashomer
He himself bragged about helping Nazis confiscate Jewish property, To add to the outrage he said he had fun doing that.

Faux News and far right sources like Infowars have demonized Soros who of course isn't a tzadik. As a young teen, it's highly improbable that he was pro Nazi or helped the Nazis. People may strongly disagree with the causes he funds, but that doesn't make him an evil person.
Present proven verified facts, not innuendo.

Soros collaboration with Nazis and his questionable jewishness is well known and rarely disputed. He retains that role well with his anti Jewish activities so really surprised that there are doubters... It's pretty much established fact.

I love how 9 of the comments are by Hashomer and his other screen names. Say what you want about fake news. Unfortunately for all of our sakes he has admitted to the atrocious and what a terrible individual he was. The history books will bear these stories and others once he is gone from the face of this earth.
