It looks like even his own home country, Hungary, doesn’t want George Soros or his pro-immigration agenda. Viktor Orban, Prime Minister of Hungary, has refused to acquiesce to the wishes of Soros’ Open Society Foundation (OSF) and the European Union. He doesn’t seem to think it’s a good idea to allow a billionaire financier and bureaucrats in Brussels to dictate his nation’s immigration policy.
He is right.
The left is struggling to maintain their power over Europe, and it looks like they’re failing. The United Kingdom’s vote to leave the EU, along with the growing identitarian movement in other European countries, signaled an increasing discontent with the status quo.
Hungary’s Prime Minister Strikes Back
Last week, Prime Minister Orban announced an investigation into the billionaire’s organization. He accused Soros of pushing the European Union (EU) to punish Hungary for refusing to adopt their “mixed population” initiative.
The battle between Orban and Soros over the issues of immigration and national sovereignty isn’t new. Earlier this year, Soros attacked the prime minister for his criticism. “He cast himself in the role of the defender of Hungarian sovereignty and me as a shady currency speculator who uses his money to flood Europe — particularly his native Hungary — with illegal immigrants as part of some vague but nefarious plot,” Soros said.
Ironically, he has also accused the prime minister of transforming Hungary into a “mafia state.”
Orban launched a vicious campaign against Soros. He has erected billboards featuring a picture of George and a message urging Hungarians “not to let Soros have the last laugh.” Currently, the Hungarian government is conducting a seven-week consultation that asks citizens if they support the Soros Plan.
According to the Prime Minister, the financier’s plan involves drastically increasing the number of refugees accepted into European countries. Soros has denied this accusation, but in a piece published in 2015, he wrote the following:
“First, the EU has to accept at least a million asylum-seekers annually for the foreseeable future. And, to do that, it must share the burden fairly — a principle that a qualified majority finally established at a Sept. 23 summit.”
He goes on to suggest that the EU should “provide 15,000 euros ($16,800) per asylum-seeker for each of the first two years to help cover housing, health-care and education costs — and to make accepting refugees more appealing to member states.”
What Is George Soros Doing?
So why all the fuss? Is Soros right to accuse Orban of just using this feud to gain political points? Well, not if we look at his previous words.
The 2015 article lays out six steps of the Soros Plan and debunks his assertion that he is not involved in European politics. Each includes convincing — or pressuring — European politicians to adopt his open borders philosophy. But that’s not all.
The Daily Mail recently reported on a leaked memo from the Open Society Foundation which shows that Soros sees the current migrant crisis as an opportunity to further his agenda in Europe. According to the notice, the financier considers the immigration crisis the “new normal.” The document states that the situation with refugees gives the OSF a chance to collaborate with other donors who have similar objectives, as it “created space to reconsider the governance of migration and the international refugee regime.”
In a recent interview, Orban discussed the motives of his nemesis. “The Soros network has an extensive sphere of influence within the European Parliament and other EU bodies,” he said, “and its aim is to build a Europe of mixed population and to condemn the Hungarian government for opposing their view on migration.”
The Prime Minister has also spoken about the EU’s attempts to pressure him. At a summit in Brussels two weeks ago, leaders in the international organization tried to compel him to compromise on the immigration issue, but they didn’t succeed.
Based on Soros’ writings, it is clear that he has an agenda for Europe, and it involves mass immigration — especially from countries that do not share the values of the west. Leaders like Orban are right to oppose him.
Hungary’s Battle for Their National Identity
Prime Minister Orban sees his conflict with George Soros and the European Union as nothing less than a battle for Hungary’s national identity, and it appears most Hungarians agree with him.
European leaders who feel as Orban does will soon find themselves embroiled in a bitter struggle to preserve their cultures. They’ll to have to fight hard to protect their values against the misguided notion of multiculturalism. However, their opposition to the Soros Plan isn’t just about safeguarding their culture – it’s about saving lives.
As a result of the EU’s irrational fixation on multiculturalism, many European lives have been placed in danger. It seems that nearly every week we see another radical Islamic attack in western countries. It is a well-known fact that ISIS has targeted Belgium, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom as stages for jihad.
If groups like ISIS have their way, Europe will soon be just another part of their caliphate. This is precisely why the leaders of these countries must resist the notion that they’re somehow obligated to take in whatever number of refugees and immigrants the EU dictates. If the nations of Europe are to survive, they must follow Prime Minister Orban’s example and exert more control over their own border policies. Each nation has a right to protect its sovereignty – and if the rest of Europe fails to do so, western culture might not survive.
