Bill O’Reilly’s Anti-Semitic Tropes: George Soros Is A Tentacled “Puppet Master”

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly resorted to anti-Semitic imagery in an effort to smear George Soros, describing the Jewish philanthropist and businessman as a “shadow puppet master” who “has his tentacles into political organizations.”

On the March 18 edition of The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly warned viewers that the American people have a responsibility to counter so-called “anti-capitalist violence on display” in Europe. He deplored what he claimed is “crazy left-wing economic stuff” on its way to taking root in the United States as a result of the economic agenda championed by President Obama, Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and 84-year old philanthropist George Soros, whom O’Reilly declared “the most frightening of all.” He continued (emphasis added):

O’REILLY: Soros has now taken his ill-gotten gains and is financing the most radical left-wing organizations in America. He is the shadow puppet master behind corrupt far-left groups like Media Matters. Soros has his tentacles into political organizations like the Center for American Progress, which has provided operatives for the Obama administration, some of whom are now going over to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Few Americans even know who Soros is, but the 84-year old uber-leftist is behind much of the political strife in this country.

Glenn Beck Explains George Soros Conspiracy Theory On ‘O’Reilly Factor’

Glenn Beck continued his campaign to “out” George Soros on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Friday.

O’Reilly interviewed Beck about his “shadow government” and “puppet master” accusations against Soros, but the “G-man” (O’Reilly’s name for Beck), was short on specifics.

Soros, a progressive billionaire, has been targeted by Beck and others on the right for funding candidates, causes, and charities deemed too progressive. Beck tells his audience that Soros is responsible for the economic crisis and is a “economic war criminal.” Earlier this week, Beck accused the Jewish Soros of collaborating with Nazis during WWII.

Asked to summarize his attacks on the businessman, Beck told O’Reilly that Soros is actually an “economic war criminal.”

“What you’re seeing happen and what is coming between the inflation in the grocery stores and the gas pumps, the organizations out in the streets. It’s a puppet show,” Beck said. “It is orchestrated by George Soros.”

Beck continued, saying “[Soros] collapsed four different regimes, four different countries before. Of course he’s collapsed currencies. He’s considered an economic war criminal in some parts of the world.

But even O’Reilly was skeptical of Beck’s assertions. “OK, but I don’t see him as the power that you see him,” O’Reilly said. “I think he’s trying. I think he’s trying.”

O’Reilly asked Beck to provide more information about the alleged “shadow government,” saying, “If you tell me where they live, I’ll go to their house.”

In what appeared to be a nod to the ridiculous nature of Beck’s conspiracy theory, O’Reilly aired a clip of Austin Powers’ Dr. Evil towards the end of the segment.
