Jon Stewart Weighs In On Glenn Beck’s George Soros Exposé

Early last week, Glenn Beck devoted an episode of his show to revealing some “scary” “secrets” about George Soros that included revelations such as, the name Soros? Not the one Jorge was born with, which was “George Schwartz.” And the bombs didn’t stop there. Beck also informed his audience that Soros started the Quantum fund “to attack currencies across the world,” that “he’s waged a war against capitalism,” and that his next target? “Is us. America.” Points were made and dots were connected. Last night Jon Stewart soaked it all in and you know what? He thinks Beck might be right.

    Glenn Beck’s version was more entertaining. After all, using puppets is how we get through the risk committee at AIG.

    Gross Bess, nobody fingers a puppet. Unless of course you’re explaining to the special victims unit what a certain friend of Jimmy Cayne’s did to you after his massage.

      I too laughed for a while and then I was puzzled by WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE were posting their “thoughts” on DB and HOW THEY FOUND US and then it scared me. You know how delicate I am Perma…I’m just not up for it again.

  12. Apathetic says:

    The only thing funnier than Glenn Beck’s fear and paranoia of liberals is Jon Stewart’s fear and paranoia of conservatives

    It’s actually kind of entertaining to watch Beck followers (read: america’s retardeds) and Stewart’s hipster tree huggers unite against wall street fatcats.

    It’s gonna be all fun and games till they find out Stewart’s real name is Leibowitz…

    If you take soros’ name GSOROS and add the exact amount of money Soros owns 13,251,222,257 (13 25 12 22 25 7) in the alphabet you get, that’s right: TRANNY… ‘nough said

  38. JoeB says:

    Beck is funnier than Stewart

  39. PorkSword says:

    It’s actually sad to me when an audience laughs at this mockery of Beck when the person doing the mocking has done nothing to disprove or discredit Beck. They merely paint him as crazy through soundbites. The sad part is that America would largely rather be entertained by an idiot like Stewart than bother with the facts of what is happening to our country. The fact is that Soros is funding a dozen groups with millions of dollars each that are aimed at socializing our country, largely through collapsing our economy.

    Think about it like this: How’s “Middle America” feeling these days? And, do you really think they feel like this because of Glen Beck?

    This is wall street, we dont care about middle america
