Hmmm . . . Far-Left Financier, “Former” Nazi George Soros Part of Limbaugh NFL Bid Group?

By Debbie Schlussel

With all the attacks on Rush Limbaugh’s bid to be a part owner of the NFL’s St. Louis Rams, the most disturbing part of the story may be what isn’t being broadcast far and wide:  that far-left financier and real-life Nazi helper, George Soros, also may be a part of the group that includes Limbaugh and seeks to buy the team.  That’s what Bloomberg columnist, Scott Soshnick, is reporting.


Limbaugh’s group is led by former Madison Square Garden President and current St. Louis Blues and Real Salt Lake majority owner Dave Checketts, who brings a wealth of sports industry contacts, know-how and credibility. Checketts also brings big-time backers like George Soros, who financed the duo’s failed attempt to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2003.

Checketts’s ownership of hockey’s Blues is backed by, among others, TowerBrook Capital Partners, which was formerly known as Soros Private Equity Partners before it was spun off from Soros Asset Management Group in 2005.

Not sure how Limbaugh can–with a straight face–be involved with Soros (a major funder of Media Matters and a host of other lefty bigwig organizations)–IF Soros is, indeed, part of the bid group as Bloomberg’s Soshnick claims. But certainly he must know the identities of his fellow investors in the group headed by St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts. Let’s hope that this bid only involves Goldman Sachs, though that hasn’t been the case in Checketts other sports team ventures.

Knowing this, it’s odd to hear the various criticisms of Limbaugh, when Soros helped the Nazis round up and evict Jews and send them to their deaths in the camps.  Yup, Soros was a kapo and sent his fellow Jews to die. He admitted his role in a “60 Minutes” interview, and it was reported by David Horowitz and Richard Poe in their book, “The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party“:

When the Nazis occupied Hungary in 1944 . . . the Judenrat [a Jewish Council set up by the Nazis, which betrayed Jews in exchange for special privileges] recruited him [Soros] and other Jewish youngsters to hand out leaflets deceptively persuading unwitting Jews to turn themselves in for deportation to the death camps. Sosos showed one of the leaflets to his father. It ordered the recipient to report to a certain synagogue with a blanket and two days’ worth of food. Tivadar [George Soros’ father] asked his son if he understood the significance of the order.

“I can guess. They’ll be interned.” . . .

“George had liked the excitement of being a courier.” . . .

“I grew up in a Jewish anti-Semitic home,” he once quipped.

From a December 20, 1998 “60 Minutes” interview Soros did with CBS News’ Steve Kroft:

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that’s–that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

Mr. SOROS: Not–not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t–you don’t see the connection. But it was–it created no–no problem at all.

KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

Mr. SOROS: No.

KROFT: For example that, ‘I’m Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.’ None of that?

Mr. SOROS: Well, of course I c–I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was–well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets–that if I weren’t there–of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would–would–would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the–whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the–I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.

It’s disgusting that this guy might have a chance to be a part owner of an NFL team.  And I have to say, it’s disturbing–if true–that Limbaugh would be involved in a group that includes Soros, assuming he knows that this is the case. And since he’s presumably putting big money into something like this, I don’t know how he wouldn’t know (if, indeed, Soros is involved, as is being reported). Goldman Sachs has been identitifed as putting the deal together for the bid to buy the St. Louis Rams, so perhaps Soros is not involved in this one. I hope not. But, we’ll see.

This is very disappointing, if Soros is, in fact, involved.

Rush, are you so interested in, so obsessed with being part of the NFL that you’re willing to look the other way and be involved with a guy like George Soros, who funds your enemies and critics–funds AMERICA’S enemies and critics–and who rounded up Jews to their deaths for the Nazis?

I hope not. But IF George Soros is involved in this and IF you know about it, well . . . . Say it ain’t so, Rush.

Wow, what a bombshell. Say it aint so, Rush and Soros in a bizness deal.

CaliforniaScreaming on October 14, 2009 at 3:37 pm

Yeah what a bombshell. The money behind the usurper Resident and the man defaminmg the usurper Resident…..It must be snowing in hell as we speak.

wolf2012 on October 14, 2009 at 3:49 pm

If George Soros is one of those business partners and Rush goes ahead with the deal, then he’s just another hypocrite. Nothing surprising there.

NormanF on October 14, 2009 at 3:51 pm

Update for Debbie: According to ESPN, Rush Limbaugh was dropped from the group bidding on a purchase of the St. Louis Rams.

Oh well… we all know why they had to drop him!

NormanF on October 14, 2009 at 4:28 pm

If Limbaugh and Soros are involved in this, then IT’S OVER FOR (THE NEOCON) LIMBAUGH! I do not listen to him as he is a GOP cheerleader.

For talk radio I listen to

Lou Dobbs

John Gambling (present generation of the first family of NYC Radio on WOR)

Steve Malzberg



Dr. Laurie Roth…Debbie, she’s as much a fireballer as you are.


I also listen to BlogTalkRadio’s Andrea Shea King, plus The Texas Broadcasting Network (http://www.texasbroadcasting.net/)

Oops – it looks like my comment in the above post wasn’t inclusive enough; it is both Communists and fascists (to the extent that they are different, that is).

Little Al on October 14, 2009 at 6:04 pm

I am not going to assume the worst about Rush at this point.

Sorrow01 on October 14, 2009 at 7:13 pm

Debbie – you should send that 60 Minutes transcript to the NFL, and to the news agencies that stood against Rush. I have no problem with the stand against Rush, as long as the behavior is carried across to all partesan characters.

JM on October 14, 2009 at 8:16 pm

How odd. Early today, an AP or ESPN news stated that both Checkett and Limbaugh does not communicate with each other often. I’m not sure if that’s accurate reporting or just poor fact-checking by the media.

Bobby'sBrain on October 14, 2009 at 9:52 pm

So the NFL has a problem with Rush because of his opinions, whom anyone with any common sense agrees with. But Soros who aided the Nazis in exterminating thousands of Jews and has no guilt about it, is not a problem at all. With over half of their players being criminals (and not feeling any guilt either) it pretty much says everything on where they stand.

This day in history

Oct 14 1959 Actor and Nazi sympathizer Errol Flynn, dubbed “the most despicable human being yet born”, dies of a heart attack in Vancouver’s west end. Flynn slept with both Truman Capote and Howard Hughes. Eww.

Bob S. on October 14, 2009 at 11:31 pm

NFL owners and nazis?

Remember about a year and a half or so ago when New York Giants owners Mara and Tisch(who is Jewish) were going to sell the naming rights to their new stadium opening next season to Allianz Insurance the company that financed the building of concentration camps during World War II. Only to refuse their bid which was the highest after a public outcry against it.

Bob S. on October 14, 2009 at 11:37 pm

The really surprising part is your use of the word “former” Nazi.

Tee hee, just had to point that out, but you’re probably correct. I think what you’re actually saying is that Soros has ‘Progressed’ to something they don’t label Nazi.

Very interesting post, thanks.

Shouldn’t there be a boycott of NFL’s St. Louis Rams, if not even NFL in total?

Smile on October 15, 2009 at 6:41 am

Also don’t forget that while Soros is manipulating the US election process, he is also shorting the dollar. This guy is Dr. Evil.

Fleiter on October 15, 2009 at 7:27 am

I hope it isn’t that way. Maybe there’s the possibility that he didn’t know of Soros association with the deal?WTF. SOROS!

Debbie, hould we be a bit more responsible with our rumors? We can get this ready speculation of all things Conservative on any solid lefty blog. I’d rather see the NFL money grabbing machine/hollywood movie machine types share something with the likes of Rushbo versus Soros, I applaud Rush for taking steps in that direction.

I’m sure you don’t need or want any further criticisms, hopefully mine will be taken in the spirit in which it’s meant.

St. Louis is a liberal “progressive” cesspool whose politicians will welcome George Soros with open arms. Shame on St. Louis and shame on the NFL ownership. The Nationalization of professional sports by U.S. Socialist Party has begun.

Bonnie on October 15, 2009 at 12:30 pm

“Shouldn’t there be a backlash against the St.Louis Rams,if not even the NFL in total?”

ABSOLUTELY! Most WHITES should boycott it – without all those Whites in the stands, the NFL – or, most of it’s teams – would go belly up overnight.

Phineas on October 15, 2009 at 1:10 pm

But phony baloney Charles Johnson of LGF calls Limbaugh a “race baiter”. I used to have high hopes for Charles but no more. He is a despicable character who wants to be “loved” by the Far Left.

You conservative scumbags are all the same. You don’t like George Soros, so you lie about him. The guy was a child during World War II. His father gave his son to a man who took him in as his “Godson”. When the Nazis came to Poland, it was this man who unfortunately had the job of evicting the Jews. THAT is the truth about George Soros. You conservatives just don’t like the fact he uses his money for humanitarian and progressive causes instead of hoarding it to buy illegal oxycontin like El Rashbo.

Anonymous P. Hancock on October 17, 2009 at 10:54 am

Not sure why all the excitement. Many of us knew this about Soros. We also know he wants to find palces that will ewearn him more money so he cabn spend on the causes he believes in. Perhaps it is Rush who is “the hypocrite.”? Ah, that could not be, right?
Fact: money talks and bullshit walks. Or gets into comments.

fred lapides on October 19, 2009 at 7:19 am

National Socialists are Socialists despite all the communist
faculty members who have lied to me.

The NFL attacks Limbaugh but supports Soros. It say a lot about the folks who run the NFL.

burt on October 19, 2009 at 10:20 am

Hmmm, Soros was a child when he helped Nazis. Maybe somebody will remember that at the same age Jeanne d’Arc was making plans to liberate France from English occupation, thus putting an end to The Hundred Years War. She was still a “child” when she achieved her goal.
There is no minimum age for being a rat or a hero, and whoever calls Soros a Nazi collaborator is right. But he became much more than that. He is a communists collaborator, he is a national-communists collaborator, an anti-christian financier, and much more. With billions in his banks this wild power hungry activist is more dangerous than all the mafias of the world combined.
