GOP Congressdentist Very Mad CNN Reporting On This Crazy Nonsense He Made Up
Ever notice that about 99 percent of the people who go around screaming about the mainstream media being "fake news" are also people who also believe in completely bizarre conspiracy theories? You know, like our Birther president who thought Ted Cruz's dad helped assassinate John F. Kennedy? Or perhaps Arizona Congressman/dentist Paul Gosar, who has recently been making up some very weird stuff about George Soros.
Earlier this month, Gosar did an interview with Vice News in which he claimed that it was possible that Charlottesville was funded by Soros, and that George Soros -- a Jewish man who was 14 when the Holocaust ended, and whose family pretended to be Christian in order to avoid being sent to a concentration camp -- was a Nazi collaborator who turned other Jewish people in.
VICE News: In fairness, antifa is in the news because of a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.
GOSAR: Well, isn’t that interesting. Maybe that was created by the Left.
VICE News: Why do you say that?
GOSAR: Because let’s look at the person that actually started the rally. It’s come to our attention that this is a person from Occupy Wall Street that was an Obama sympathizer. So, wait a minute, be careful where you start taking these people to.
And look at the background. You know, you know George Soros is one of those people that actually helps back these individuals. Who is he? I think he’s from Hungary. I think he was Jewish. And I think he turned in his own people to the Nazis. Better be careful where we go with those.
VICE News: Do you think George Soros funded the neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville?
GOSAR: Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out?
Oh! He's so cheeky!
Oddly, his theories did not go over well with everyone. In fact, seven of his own siblings wrote an op-ed decrying his statements and disassociating themselves and their family from his beliefs.
Gosar has been pretty tough to nail down since then, but CNN finally caught up to him on Wednesday.
