Conservative pundit and media entrepreneur Glenn Beck blasted billionaire George Soros on Saturday, calling his support for left-wing causes “sociopathic” while claiming his influence reaches the top echelons of Fox News.
In an interview with Newsmax TV’s Chris Salcedo, Beck — who founded Mercury Radio Arts, the parent company of The Blaze TV and radio productions — accused the Hungarian-born Soros of funding groups that foment unrest in the United States and elsewhere around the world.
“I feel almost as though he is so disconnected from reality it’s almost sociopathic,” Beck said, noting that because of his negative influence on societies a number of countries have banned him or the organizations he funds, including Russia and his home country of Hungary.
In the fall of 2017, the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal dubbed Soros the “Connoisseur of Chaos.”
Beck went on to explain Soros’ strategy of financing the campaigns of leftist district attorneys and prosecutors who, under the guise of criminal justice reform, adopt policies like eliminating cash bail and refusing to prosecute certain crimes, all of the objective of creating unrest.
“What he does, he gobbles up the law enforcement, he gobbles up the attorney generals, he gobbles up district attorneys,” Beck said. “If he can’t change it in Washington or the capital of [a] country, he changes it by going in and controlling who’s prosecuted and who’s not.
“That’s what he’s doing here in America right now,” Beck said, referencing an odd interview involving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and co-hosts of Fox News’ “Outnumbered” program earlier this week.
Gingrich was essentially shut down by co-hosts Melissa Francis and Marie Harf after he began discussing Soros’ attempts to fund the elections of left-wing prosecutors.
“The number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros’ elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said Wednesday.
“Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’ money, and they’re a major cause of the violence we’re seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on to the streets,” the former GOP Speaker from Georgia added.
“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” co-host Melissa Francis interjected.
“He paid for it. He paid for it. Why can’t we discuss the fact that …,” Gingrich shot back before he was cut off by former Obama State Department spokesperson Harf.
“No, he didn’t. I agree with Melissa. George Soros doesn’t need to be a part of this conversation,” she said.
Bill O’Reilly, a long-time, top-rated Fox News host, defended Gingrich as being spot-on regarding his claims about Soros, while also noting that the network has a ‘hands-off’ policy regarding the billionaire leftist.

“So Gingrich is absolutely correct, absolutely right. Now, none of the people on the panel seemed to understand what Gingrich was talking about,” O’Reilly said.
“But the rule is, if you invoke the name George Soros, then you are anti-Semitic because Soros is Jewish… That’s what the ladies were responding to.”
Beck, himself a former top host at Fox News, echoed O’Reilly’s claims.
“I’ve often told the story of being in Roger Ailes’ office and he said to me at one point ‘you know what your problem is . . . you won’t play the game.’ He said, ‘look we all we play a game,’” Beck said.
“I was so disgusted by that. And I said ‘I don’t want to. It’s not a game to me. I don’t want to be a part of that,” he noted further, adding: “That conversation was about George Soros.”
Beck went on to recount a meeting between a top official in his company and a top representative of Soros, the latter of whom essentially demanded that Beck gets on board with Soros’ left-wing agenda for the country.
“The first thing that was said by the Soros representative was ‘your boss is hurting my boss and it’s going to stop,’” he said. “The last thing he said was ‘I don’t think you understand: The ship has sailed. And you’re either on the ship or you’re not.'”
“The ship I believe he was talking about is the ship that we’re now seeing where this Marxist revolutionary [unrest] that is folding right into the world economics’ great reset,” Beck said. “That’s the ship that was sailing and everybody has to decide: Are you on the ship or not.”
