'I HAD NO SENSE OF GUILT...'
Clip is from a long-forgotten 60 Minutes profile of George Soros broadcast in 1998. Soros, a Hungarian Jew, admits to helping the Nazis as a teenager during German occupation.
THIS SOROS CLIP IS EVEN MORE STARTLING
'THE HAPPIEST YEAR OF MY LIFE...'
The secret financial source behind the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, Black Lives Matter, and the anti-Trump protests says his year as a Nazi sympathizer was the 'happiest year of my life.'
60 MINUTES TRANSCRIPT
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.
