Bill O’Reilly tonight sounded off on anti-capitalists across the world and warned Americans of “the shadow puppet master behind corrupt, far-left groups.”

Violence broke out today in Frankfurt as thousands protested the European Central Bank’s new headquarters. Close to 600 protesters – who call themselves ‘Blockupy’ – were detained.

“Obviously, this is a blatant anti-free market play,” O’Reilly said. “These people are either communists or socialists. They want governments to run the economic show, and they want to punish wealthy people.”

O’Reilly noted that Greece is bankrupt because of its socialist policies. He said Spain and Italy are also in economic trouble because private enterprise is “being strangled” by government spending.

“The Factor” host said that President Barack Obama is “sympathetic to big government economic intrusion.” O’Reilly referenced a speech in Virginia where Obama told an audience that big government vision is the reason individuals have succeeded.

O’Reilly said the good news is that “the crazy left-wing economic stuff” has not yet taken deep root in the U.S. Still, he said we have “a quasi-socialistic senator in Elizabeth Warren,” plus socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who Vermont voters have elected 10 times.

The most frightening of all, O’Reilly said, is George Soros. O’Reilly described him as “a billionaire who made huge money trading currencies, rooting for countries to fail.” O’Reilly said Soros is now financing America’s radical left organizations.

O’Reilly called Soros “the shadow puppet master behind corrupt, far-left groups,” and said he “has his tentacles into political organizations.” Few Americans know who Soros is, but O’Reilly said he’s “behind much of the political strife in this country.”

“The Factor” host said that when a bank opening in Frankfurt causes injury to nearly 100 officers, there’s a problem.

“We Americans have to wake up and counter this problem,” he said.
