There is no way you can spin "the happiest days of my life" in a way that it doesn't sound callous, sociopathic, demented, and obscene. Come on people.
Those are some cold statements, but they are not "the happiest time of my life". I'm starting to think that maybe the "happiest time of my life" quote is not an actual quote of Soros', but someone else's commentary on his remarks in the Kroft interview. Somebody who doesn't really care about accuracy, because he's a "commentator" not a "reporter" or "news anchor".
Okay, I found the Soros quote about the happiest time of his life being the time he was a Nazi collaborator.
He made the statement in a definite context-the intro to his father's (Tivadar Soros) book, Masquarade-Dancing Around Death In Nazi-Occupied Hungary. He was referring to working as a courier with his dad for 10 months for the jewish council.
Tivadar Soros stated in his book that "As jews couldn't go to school any more, they were ordered to report to council headquarters. The children were enlisted as couriers under the command of their teachers. My . younger son, George, also became a courier. On the second day, he returned home at seven in the evening.
'What did you do all day?' 'Mostly nothing. But this afternoon I was given some notices to deliver to various addresses.' 'Did you read what the said?'. 'I even brought one home'. He handed me a small slip of paper, with a typewritten message. 'Do you know what this means?', I asked him. 'I can guess', he replied, with great seriousness. 'They'll be interned'".
His father stopped him working as a courier, and made arrangements for him to take on the identity of the godson of a mid-level Hungarian official, and George worked for him, which involved confiscating the property of the jews being sent to the camps.
The quote about the happiest time in his life was:
"It is a sacreligious thing to say, but those ten months were the happiest times of my life....We led an adventurous live and we had fun together".
It is a very insensitive thing to say, but he was referring to the things that he and his father did to survive. He wasn't saying that he enjoyed the suffering of the jews who went to the camps. He was living with a secret identity and he was 13-14 years old at the time-it would seem like a big adventure to a kid. He was a kid following his father's survival plan. There is a context to his quote.
Overall, I really don't care about Soros or Ratzinger's activities during WWII. I'm not a catholic, I could care less about such things because I know that I don't need some guy wearing a dress and a pointy hat to speak for God. I can go directly to the source. If the leaders of the catholic church want to make Pee-Wee Herman their next pope, it's their perogative to do so.
