Fox News has caved to intense pressure by taking down a controversial cartoon of philanthropist George Soros, the billionaire leftist donor who is financially backing political officials whose tepid approach to law enforcement has contributed to a horrific spike in violent crime and the “smash and grab” robberies that have erupted in Democrat-controlled areas.
The cartoon which was penned by AF Branco depicted the Hungarian-born Soros as a puppeteer pulling the strings on Democrat district attorneys and attorneys general who have been able to advance the left’s anti-police agenda, equating his influence to lawlessness and chaos.
Being that Soros happens to be Jewish, he is given protected status for his ideological crusade to use his money and front groups to radically transform America into a dystopian place where traditional concepts of law and order have been turned on their head and criminals have been morphed into victims and martyrs by a corrupt and complicit media, resulting in a staggering crime wave and record murders in multiple U.S. cities.
Nothing has been more effective when it comes to shutting down critics of Soros and his ongoing efforts to reimagine the legal system than accusing them of antisemitism, a powerful tool that is routinely wielded to batter them into silence. And nobody wields a bigger club than the Anti-Defamation League which seemed to easily bully Fox News into compliance.
The network pulled the cartoon from its Instagram page following the ADL’s assertion that it reinforced “antisemitic tropes,” an accusation that the organization posted to its Twitter account on Wednesday.
As we have told @FoxNews numerous times, casting a Jewish individual as a puppet master who manipulates national events for malign purposes conjures up longstanding antisemitic tropes about Jewish power + contributes to the normalization of antisemitism. This needs to be removed. pic.twitter.com/gyWTrSvNtR

The ADL’s arm-twisting until Fox News cried “uncle” drew a harsh response from many on Twitter.
Just because the puppet master who manipulates national events for malign purposes happens to be Jewish, doesn’t make the cartoon antisemitic. How much does the Soros Foundation donate to ADL? Could that be what this is all about?

So when someone like Soros is basically a puppet master who manipulates national events for malign purposes, is the world supposed to ignore it just because he’s Jewish? No, it shouldn’t be ignored but your ridiculous organization should be ridiculed & then ignored. https://t.co/hbuxBoHw6O

Tell us how Soros funding campaigns for his preferred DAs & AGs is related to him being Jewish please.

In this case, Soros, by funding leftist prosecutors, is in fact helping to manipulate national events. The fact that he’s Jewish has nothing to do with it, one way or the other.

Translation: Soros gets to do whatever the hell he wants & if it is destructive to society (which it usually is), any accurate reporting of this behavior will be smeared as “antisemitism” in order to silence & censor.
What an absolute despicable organization the ADL has become!

Suggest another metaphor for the underlying reality: Progressive “Soros Prosecutors” aren’t enforcing the law, which is leading to chaos. I understand the historical tropes. But being Jewish doesn’t insulate Soros from an apt metaphor that would be applied to anyone doing this.

What are you & the @ADL proposing? That Soros be off-limits due to his Jewish background? Does that then mean all hedge fund managers & billionaires should be off-limits, or just the Jewish ones? Koch Brothers fair game but Soros & Peter Singer are untouchable?

Notably, the ADL isn’t so quick to go on the attack against congressional Democrats including Ilhan Omar and her fellow “Squad” members who have mainstreamed antisemitism in their party and who regularly spew antisemitic tropes with zero accountability.
