Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

If there is one thing the left is good at, it's lying. If there's another, it's the use of projection - a psychological term that describes the act of ascribing to others traits, characteristics, or behaviors that the accuser actually possesses or engages in. This week, George Soros masterfully did just that when he said that Fox News, Glenn Beck, and the Tea Party are taking the United States down a road that will lead to a 'dictatorial democracy.'

Via Forbes:
Billionaire investor and philanthropist George Soros warned tonight in New York that the combination of Fox News, Glenn Beck, The Tea Party, and the ability of Americans to fantasize unrealistically about their political system might lead “this open society to be on the verge of some dictatorial democracy.”

Soros mentioned George Orwell’s novel, “1984″ as a possible precedent for the kind of fantasies being promulgated in our culture today. Orwell’s “1984″ satirized the Communist system of absolute control over society and politics that prevailed in the Soviet Union until 1990.

Soros was speaking extemporaneously in conversation with CNN newsman Fareed Zakaria at a International Crisis Center dinner that honored him at the Pierre Hotel.

Former President Bill Clinton, Lord Christopher Patten, Chancellor of Oxford University, hedge fund multibillionaire Paul Tudor Jones, all spoke eloquently about Soros contribution to global order.
Did you catch that part about Bill Clinton applauding Soros for his work toward global order? Aside from the fact that someone like that was actually elected president to two terms, doesn't it blow Soros' argument about Fox, Beck, and the Tea Party out of the water? Didn't Clinton give Soros kudos for being an advocate for the kind of state control that George Orwell warned about? Isn't that the same system that Soros referenced when demonizing his opponents? Conversely, those opponents reject the notion completely.

Considering that George Soros is the one who wants this reality more than anyone, what does it say about him that he accuses his opponents of wanting it?

It's called self-loathing, George.

Further into the Forbes piece written by Robert Lenzner, the author actually piled on to the attack by Soros on Glenn Beck specifically. Lenzner wrote:
Soros also characterized Fox newscaster Glenn Beck, who has been falsely vilifying Soros publicly, as a throwback to the wild and crazy radical elements that never before were given such a public pedestal to foment their hate.

Beck has been trying to stir up public hatred of Soros, suggesting that the investment genius and significant philanthropist was maliciously trying to take over the U.S. for his own purposes.
I had to read that twice myself to make sure he wasn't identifying those charges as having been levied by Soros. Nope, Lenzner made those accusations all by himself.

Beck responded to the Forbes piece on his television show:
