Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch Was Banned from Fox News for Saying the “Soros-Occupied State Department” Is Funding the Caravan

George Soros, Wiki

Last week, Fox News banned Chris Farrell, who is the director of investigations and research for Judicial Watch after he claimed on the Lou Dobb’s Show that the “Soros-occupied State Department” was funding the large caravan of migrants at the US border. Apparently, this statement of simple truth was viewed by Fox News as anti-Semitic.

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert fired back at those who accuse him and others of anti-Semitism for criticizing liberal billionaire financier George Soros.

At the end of a segment on Wednesday night’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Gohmert said, “It’s not anti-Semitic to criticize Soros, and Israel issued a statement a year ago saying just that.”

Gohmert’s televised comments came less than a week after Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell was banned from Fox-affiliated networks after accusing the “Soros-occupied State Department” of funding the caravan of migrants on its way through Mexico to the United States, a claim that the Texas congressman himself has echoed.

The left has made a concerted attempt to link any criticism of the billionaire financier with anti-Semitism. In an article titled, “‘Dripping with poison of antisemitism’: the demonization of George Soros,” The Guardian’s Jason Wilson makes his case:

From the racist white nationalist site the Daily Stormer to major conservative media stars, the right has been increasingly united over the last decade in seeing the hidden hand of Soros, whom they frequently describe as a “globalist”, in all manner of events.

He has been falsely accused by the right of orchestrating alleged violence from so-called “antifa” groups, manipulating the world economy, being a wartime Nazi collaborator and sponsoring the entirely fictional project of “white genocide.”

As does Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday that attempts to link Soros to the caravan is akin to a “blood libel” against Jews.

In a statement to The Daily Caller, Rep. Gohmert doubled-down on his criticism of Soros:

“The alt-left media, including the New York Times, has decided to provide an all out defense of their beloved, self-identified and remorseless former Nazi collaborator of Jewish lineage, who even the Israeli government knows well is not their friend. George Soros, an anti-God, anti-Israel billionaire, is perhaps the largest ever global funder of efforts to undermine America’s Constitution. Anyone who puts this much effort into the destabilization of America and the destruction of Israel deserves to be called out for his actions.”

The Texas congressman also included a link to a statement from Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs that essentially accused the billionaire financier of undermining “Israel’s democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself.”

FOX NEWS has lost its ever-lovin’ mind. Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch was not in any way being Anti-Semitic for accusing George Soros and company for helping to fund the Central American Caravan in their fouls hope to invade and cross the U.S.’s Sovereign Borders.

If they do something wrong and get critized for it, they accuse you of anti-semitism. It’s insane!

Amazing. Here is a Hungarian Jew, who in his youth, collaborated with the 3rd Reich for special treatment and ‘favors.’ 86 y/o and yet it still lives. Yes, amazing.
