A Republican congressman pushed a false conspiracy theory about Democratic megadonor George Soros during an interview on the Fox Business Network Thursday, prompting a host to rebuke the comments.

Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas who has long burnished a reputation as one of the most conservative members of Congress brought up Soros during a discussion on "Varney & Co" with host Stuart Varney on how Google is supposedly working toward the development of a censored version of its product to make available in China.

Gohmert agreed with Varney that the effort was "Orwellian" a reference to author George Orwell before adding that it "reminds me of another George, George Soros."

"Because Google is born in a free country, and then they go over and oppress others, help oppress another country," Gohmert said. "Uh, George Soros is supposed to be Jewish, but you wouldn't know it from the damage he's inflicted on Israel, and the fact that he turned on fellow Jews and helped take the property that they owned. This same kind of thing Google coming from a free country and helping oppress."

***
Within an hour of Gohmert's comments, Varney condemned them on air, saying that those views are not shared by "anyone" at his network.

"In the last hour, one of our guests, Congressman Louie Gohmert, for some reason went out of his way to bring up George Soros, and made unsubstantiated and false allegations against him," Varney said. "I want to make clear those views are not shared by me, this program or anyone at Fox Business."


I'm going to have to try the "Speaking of people named George..." line the next time I want to bring up a conspiracy.

Yeah but that's because the Koch brothers don't have a made up "He helped the Nazis" conspiracy around them.
