Facing the specter of being ejected from Hungary by nationalist leader Viktor Orban, the Open Society Foundations – an international front group founded by progressive financier George Soros – is packing up its operations and leaving the country. They announced this week that they would be permanently removing operations from Budapest, the Hungarian capital.
“The government of Hungary has denigrated and misrepresented our work and repressed civil society for the sake of political gain, using tactics unprecedented in the history of the European Union,” said Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations.
The Open Society Foundation cites “an increasingly repressive political and legal environment” that was caused by a “hate campaign [that] has included propaganda posters and billboards, invoking anti-Semitic imagery from World War II.”
Orban and his political party have been pushing a “Stop Soros” bill to combat subversive behavior from the NGOs affiliated with the Soros network. He accused Soros publicly of pushing mass immigration from third-world Muslim countries for the purposes of undermining the Christian majority of Hungary. Orban and his administration remain steadfast despite accusations of antisemitism and other charges from its opponents.
“A shadow army of George Soros is operating in Hungary. We want them to come into the light and to be visible. We want to know who they are, we want to understand what they want, and we want them to reveal the source and the amount of funding they receive, and whether they need to do anything in return for it,” Orban said last month.
“No matter how many times George Soros goes to Brussels, no matter how many times the issue of illegal immigration is placed on the agenda, and no matter how many allies George Soros has in Brussels, we will not back down. Illegal immigrants will continue to not be allowed entry into Hungary in [the] future,” Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said in a statement earlier this year.
Orban is certainly creating the blueprint for other leaders throughout the country to rid themselves of unwanted foreign influence and protect the national interest. The Soros-backed Central European University is expected to be the next on Orban’s hit-list as progressive multicultural infiltration is well on its way to being eradicated in the Heart of Europe.
