If you think billionaire liberal George Soros is a horrible person, you’re not alone.
It’s not just here in America where Soros has earned himself a reputation for being corrupt, malicious, and an ever-ready opponent of liberty. Apparently, the man who has been leading the Democrat Party for the last 20 years or so, is also quite hated in Europe.
Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán delivered a scathing indictment of the world’s liberals and arguing that Hungary had the right to implement whatever immigration policies it chooses to, and that the nation also had the right to fight back against the underhanded efforts of Soros and his minions.
Orbán’s comments echoed sentiments he articulated during an interview a few weeks ago where he explained that George Soros and his lackeys were acting as if they were above Hungary’s laws in their attempts to abuse the system and grab more power for themselves.
From the Hungarian site Miniszterelnok:
There can be no special privileges, and no one may stand above the law – not even George Soros’s people. I do not believe that the civic intelligentsia would be happy to be allied with people whom the impending legislation will clearly show to be operating with foreign funding, serving foreign interests, and following instructions from abroad. All this is about the fact that – through his organisations in Hungary, and hidden from the public gaze – George Soros is spending endless amounts of money to support illegal immigration. To pursue his interests he pays a number of lobbying organisations operating in the guise of civil society. He maintains a regular network, with its own promoters, its own media, hundreds of people, and its own university. He wants to keep the pressure on Hungary: the country which expects even the likes of George Soros to observe its laws. I believe that George Soros must not be underestimated: he is a powerful billionaire of enormous determination who, when it comes to his interests, respects neither God nor man. We want to protect Hungary, and so we must also commit ourselves to this struggle.
During his speech on Wednesday Orbán continued with that theme.
“I know that the power, size and weight of Hungary is much smaller than that of the financial speculator, George Soros, who is now attacking Hungary. Despite ruining the lives of millions of European with his financial speculations, being penalized in Hungary for speculations, and who is an openly admitted enemy of the euro, he is so highly praised that he is received by the EU’s top leaders.”
Orbán continued by noting that Soros was behind much of the mayhem in the continuous flood of illegal migrants into Europe, and that the billionaire was personally financing the efforts in an attempt to strip EU member nations of their sovereignty.
“George Soros and his NGOs want to transport one million migrants to the EU per year. He has personally, publicly announced this program and provides a financial loan for it. You could read this yourselves. We reject this, we do not want to lose the right of national ratemaking for public utilities, because we fear that this would increase the burdens of the people and once again lead to drastic price increases, from which Hungarian families have suffered enough.”
As such Orbán, and Hungary, would continue to stand against the European Commission’s attempts to bring ever greater numbers of immigrants and refugees into Europe.
“Our position is clear: we do not want, and do not think it is in accordance with the founding treaties of the Union, to settle migrants in our country in a mandatory way. The decision on who we live with can only be made by the Hungarian citizens.”
The Hungarian Prime Minister also explained that he and the people of Hungary were tired of the politically correct doublespeak that so often flows out of the European Parliament.
“We talk clearly and unambiguously, so everyone can understand, even if we know that this may not appeal to everyone. We on the other hand are irritated by the restrained political language, unable to name things for what they are, that has become widespread in European public life nowadays.”
After he finished his remarks, the UK’s representative to the European Parliament, Nigel Farage spoke out and told Orbán that his European colleagues would never listen to him. Farage reminded Orbán that he had been making similar speeches before the parliament for years and that they had NEVER even pretended to give Hungary a fair hearing. Finally, Farage wondered when Orbán, who is obviously an intelligent man, would figure things out and realize that the EU doesn’t care what the people of Hungary want. It was the perfect follow-up speech to Orbán’s attack on the EU, and it raises some serious questions about whether or not Hungary will remain in the EU long term.
The more allies we can find to fight Soros’ evil machinations, the better. President Trump should put a call in to the Hungarian Prime Minister to discuss who our two nations can work together to unmask and weaken Soros.
