Making sense of the “George Soros” frame: It turn out George Soros is being “framed” for Rupert Murdoch’s actions.
Glenn Beck has persistently attacked George Soros by name, depicting him as the puppet master for everything that is wrong in society, when in fact Rupert Murdoch is to blame. Glenn Beck is simply “framing” George Soros for Rupert Murdoch’s actions. Actions that largely benefit the top 1%, or “privileged sector” at the expense of the bottom 99%.
In an interview with Fareed Zakaria, George Soros was asked what he thought about Glenn Beck’s endless pursuit to paint him as the puppet master. Soros indicated that Glenn Beck is projecting what Rupert Murdoch is doing through Fox news.
Fox news makes a habit out of doing this says Soros, “it has imported the methods of George Orwell, you know – ‘newspeak’, where you can tell the people falsehoods, and deceive them.”
Glenn Beck even goes as far as making the outrageous claim that George Soros literally helped put people in ovens during the holocaust in Nazi Germany when he was just a small boy. This statement is way out of bounds, not to mention utterly despicable. However, like other radical right wing talk show hosts, Glenn Beck serves a purpose for the “privileged sector”, which is to use negative language to evoke strong emotions because this tactic works! The use of emotions is a very powerful motivator, especially when combined with Orwellian newspeak.
A prime example of this tactic working can be seen here, describing how Byron Williams intended to kill people at the ACLU and Tides Foundation after watching Glenn Beck depict George Soros as the puppet master.
It appears that profiting at the expense of the people (which is what George Soros is being “framed” for) is viewed by Bryon Williams, and other believers of the Orwellian right wing “frames” as totally unacceptable, and warrants the motivation necessary to start a revolution in this country. The problem is that people like Bryon Williams are getting their information, or misinformation from Rupert Murdoch’s Fox news network, and end up placing their anger in the wrong direction!
Interestingly, the motivation to stop the top 1% from further oppressing and exploiting the people in Egypt and Tunisia, for instance, has led to revolutionary uprisings in this region, beginning with the Arab spring.
The same type of motivated behavior aimed at preventing the “privileged sector” from profiting at the expense of the people is also occurring in the United States. This movement is known as Occupy Wall Street, or 99% vs 1%, and is currently spreading throughout the world!
And of course, all of these movements are being “framed” by Rupert Murdoch’s media empire as a bunch of Socialist, Marxist, and Communist’s, who are trying to wage war against America.
This is how Glenn Beck is “framing” the uprisings all across the globe.
“The war is just beginning”
“Shoot me in the head if they try to change our Government”
“You have to be prepared to take rocks to the head, the other side is attacking”
“There is a coup going on, grab a torch, drive a steak through the heart of the bloodsuckers”
“They are taking you to a place to be slaughtered”
In the end, the radical right wing is attempting to “frame” George Soros for the actions of Rupert Murdoch’s global media empire. Take a look at Rupert Murdoch discussing his global media enterprise and how he tries to use it to shape public opinion.
When asked if he was using his global media enterprise to shape public opinion in favor of the war, Rupert Murdoch replied, “we’ve tried”, then started to laugh. He followed this up with, “Clearly public opinion NOW, has grown very, very tired of the whole enterprise.” (emphasis added on NOW)
This is a joke to Rupert Murdoch and his loyal puppets like Glenn Beck and others, who willingly import the methods of George Orwell with the intention of manipulating public opinion to support an ideology that is based on the principle of profit over people, and in the case of war, profit at the expense of people’s lives!
As George Soros put it, “people need to be aware that they are being deceived.”
