New York Times: Sheldon Adelson Is Evil — But George Soros Isn’t

Pages: 1 2

The Sunday New York Times had an op-ed vilifying casino magnate Sheldon Adelson yet again.  Stating that he is pouring money into a political agenda that is “wildly at odds” with the American nation’s needs, the NYT wrote about Adelson in a way it has never written of George Soros or labor unions who have given more to the liberal left.

The op-ed stated that Adelson was “the perfect illustration of the squalid state of political money, spending sums greater than any political donation in history to advance his personal, ideological and financial agenda, which is wildly at odds with the nation’s needs.”  Does every American – in fact, every person in any democracy — not follow and vote with their “personal, ideological and financial agenda”? Is the Times saying Adelson can’t vote as such simply because he is a self-made billionaire? Isn’t that what every poor man seeks to become? A rich self-made man? Is that not the essence of greatness in America – putting one’s money where one’s mouth is?

Under the headline, “What Sheldon Adelson Wants,” the New York Times suggests Adelson is disgusted by the idea of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “He considers a Palestinian state ‘a steppingstone for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people’,” and says he is “concerned over Obama’s plans to raise taxes for the wealthy.” Continuing one can read: “Mr. Adelson’s other overriding interest is his own wallet. He rails against the president’s ‘socialist-style economy’ and redistribution of wealth, but what he really fears is Mr. Obama’s proposal to raise taxes on companies like his that make a huge amount of money overseas. Ninety percent of the earnings of his company, the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, come from hotel and casino properties in Singapore and Macau. (The latter is located, by the way, in China, a socialist country the last time we checked.)”

Many minorities (including, one may think, Mr. Obama himself) were raised with exactly the same values as Adelson — vote on what is best for your people and your pocketbook.  Is that not the American way? As Adelson once told Forbes Magazine, he’s “against very wealthy ­people attempting to or influencing elections. But as long as it’s doable I’m going to do it. Because I know that guys like Soros have been doing it for years, if not decades. And they stay below the radar by creating a network of corporations to funnel their money. I have my own philosophy and I’m not ashamed of it. I gave the money because there is no other legal way to do it. I don’t want to go through ten different corporations to hide my name. I’m proud of what I do and I’m not looking to escape recognition.” Certainly values which I will pass along to my children – and the words that should be used to describe the man are “heroic” or “role model.”

    the new york slime and george soros are evil lying, radical, left-wing extremist propagandists!! Thank God for Sheldon Adelson who clearly sees the truth before him!!!

  • Cynic

    But of course the NYT would never write about Soros in the way they did about Adelson because Soros helped get rid of some of the Jews of the world during WWII as the NYT covered up the Nazi slaughter of Jews.

    Why isn't there a congressional investigation into Soros? Does he own all of our congressmen?

    Also, contribute to Meir Panim. Mr. Adelson was one of the founders of this organization; a network of free cafeterias, that feeds the hungry in Israel. Nobody–Jew or non-Jew-is turned away.

    The NY Times broadside was not an op-ed piece – it was straight editorial. And they don't invite comments on editorials. I felt obliged to immediately send a letter to the editors (which in all likelyhood they will never publish)
    It will doubtlessly find a better welcome here so I copy and paste it in here:''Your editorial on Sheldon Adelson is wildly at odds with the nation’s needs.

    "What Sheldon Adelson wants is what every enlightened American wants; to rid America of its greatest enemy, a fraudulent man who should be impeached and tried for treason.

    You might give consideration to changing your name from the New York Times to American Pravda.

    Adelson will go down in history as having helped save America from bankruptcy, from Sharia Law and from total destruction."

    No surprise there…as we can expect from the NYT, is a well known Democratic think tank, in line and coordinated with the W.H., Media Matters, and the rest of the corrupted media to distort and cheat public opinion. Almost everything is in coordination, and fake…a dishonest way if you believe in the good journalism, you will get only lies…So forget that Liberal Progressive mafia to address the important thing. Mr. Sheldon Adelson: thank you for your fine actions; I appreciate your generosity and everything you do to help this country. We are going to take back our beautiful and prosper America.

    "Does every American – in fact, every person in any democracy — not follow and vote with their “personal, ideological and financial agenda?"

    No, Mr. Torossian. Not with bribery and underwriting apartheid and genocide. Nice try trying to call that "a vote" though.
