Glenn Beck has landed himself in hot water following a remark he made about Holocaust survivor George Soros.

Earlier this week Glenn Beck, Fox News anchor, remarked Soros, billionaire financier, to be “a Jewish boy helping send the Jews to death camps.”

Conservative radio and Fox News Channel television host Glenn Beck spoke to a crowd of thousands at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois on September 20, 2010. Among them were the Chicago Tea Party Patriots, an organization who states its goal is educate the public and promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets. Other speakers included former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, Congressman Aaron Schock, and Tea Party leader Herman Cain. Kevin Chalfant, former lead singer for 1980s rock band Journey, performed his song All for One. Fame Pictures, Inc
Whoa – to make a remark like that about the Holocaust – a highly sensitive topic – what was he thinking?

However, Beck also said he “can't imagine what it must have been like trying to survive.”

Where does one find the gall to remark – and so publicly – about something he can, or can’t, only imagine? Beck wasn’t directly involved in the Holocaust – but Soros was.

Soros is a survivor of the Nazi’s occupation of Hungary. He also donates to liberal causes.

The Anti-Defamation League has criticized Beck’s remarks, which is not a surprise. ADL National Director Abraham Foxman says Beck's remarks about Soros' childhood were "inappropriate, offensive and over the top."

Foxman, according to USA Today, later told Salon.com that he still believes Beck is a strong supporter of Israel and the Jewish people.

A Beck spokesman cited an Oct. 22 letter from Foxman, which was posted Friday on Beck’s website, which praised Beck as a "friend of Israel."

As a person who speaks publicly on Fox News, Beck should really be more careful what he does – and does not – say.
