Following Glenn Beck’s classic three-day “Puppet Master” series on George Soros, Jewish Funds for Justice launched a campaign, “fighting back against Beck’s outrageous accusations and insinuations with a multifaceted campaign to get Beck’s poison off the air.”
On Jan. 13, 2011, JFJ president Simon Greer and a few hangers-on , stood outside the News Corporation building in New York. Greer announced their intention to deliver 10,000 signatures calling on Rupert Murdoch to remove Glenn Beck from Fox News Channel’s daily lineup. the group attempted to deliver a pink slip for Mr. Beck, calling for the termination of his contract.
Greer further listed Beck’s “Ten Worst Quotes of 2011” – a collection of statements Beck has made – but stripped of their context. the group was not allowed to enter the News Corporation building, or to leave our 10,000 letters for Mr. Murdoch.
Who are these people? who do they represent? It isn’t some of my American Jewish friends that’s for sure.
In case you hadn’t guessed by now Jewish Funds for Justice is simply another far left organization, posing as moderate and responsible citizens.
Who are the leaders of Jewish Funds for Justice?

Amy Dean keynoted the event. In introducing her, CPUSA labor secretary Scott Marshall called her work visionary and innovative. Dean noted “while electoral coalitions are one thing, governing coalitions are often another. It’s vital that labor and its allies have a say in what policies unfold once their candidates are elected. Dean said much more must be done to build up the movement to ensure the Obama agenda and progressive change is advanced in Congress.”
On November 18 2010 Amy Dean was keynote speaker at the St. Louis: 7th annual Working Class Media & Democracy Forum, hosted by the the Missouri/Kansas Friends of the People’s World
Contact for the event was Communist Party member Tony Pecinovsky.

Committees of Correspondence supporter Holly Fincke is the Director of the Windcall Institute, while Van Jones,and former Communist Party Religion Commission member and Committees of Correspondence supporter Scott Douglas serve on its advisory board.
This isn’t the first time JFFJ has attacked Glenn Beck.
On July 16, 2010, leaders of faith and progressive communities from across the United States put their name to a two-page feature in the Jewish Forward magazine which had been put together by JFFJ. The introduction to the feature reads;
On May 28, on his nationally syndicated radio show, Glenn Beck read an excerpt from a Washington Post column by Jewish Funds for Justice President Simon Greer. In it, Simon argued that we are at our best as a society when we put humankind and the common good first. Beck responded: “This leads to death camps. A Jew, of all people, should know that. This is exactly the kind of talk that led to the death camps in Germany: ‘put humankind and the common good first.’” In the wake of this attack on our shared values, we are grateful to so many leaders for standing with us. Because of your support, Jewish Funds for Justice can continue to speak out against this kind of demagoguery and advocate for real solutions to the pressing challenges facing millions of Americans
Signatories to that statement included Jim Wallis, Mary Kay Henry, President, Service Employees International Union, Caron Atlas of Feminists for Peace and Barack Obama, John_Goldstein, (ex New Party), Leslie Lomas, (Democratic Socialists of America supporter) and former Communist Party member Carol Pittman.
By the way – in 2009, George Soros’ Open Society Institute provided a $150,000 grant to the JFFJ and its associated group, the Funder’s Collaborative on Youth Organizing. In 2010, the Open Society provided a $200,000 grant.
I hope the “Puppet Master” is getting value for money from his little troupe of red marionettes.
