lol I guess the whole country is lined with these anti-Soros posters now.
This Soros poster drama in Hungary has gotten hot and heavy.
First the Jew ambassador came out and said it was anti-Semitism to criticize anything Soros does, because he is Jewish. Then Netanyahu himself came out and was like “no wait – I actually hate this guy also.”
Now Soros is saying it’s like the Holocaust all over again.
A spokesman for George Soros has slammed campaign billboards and television ads from Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party that feature a picture of the billionaire financier, saying they are “reminiscent of Europe’s darkest hours.”
The billboards and ads from Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party campaign feature a smiling Soros with the words “Don’t let Soros have the last laugh.”
Soros – a Hungarian-born Jew who emigrated to the US and UK after World War II and made a fortune – has long been a vocal critic of Orban’s right-wing policies and supports open-borders for Europe.
What is it about surviving a Holocaust that gave Jews this ability to make billions of dollars?
Some of Orban’s campaign billboards have been vandalized with graffiti reading “stinking Jew.”
If the posters themselves actually said “stinking Jew,” well, that would be awesome. But then I could at least understand the complaints. But surely, the Hungarian government isn’t responsible for graffiti.
Michael Vachon, a spokesperson for Soros, has called the campaign “anti-European,” saying it misrepresents the billionaire’s views on migration.
Wait so, his views aren’t “infinity migrants”?
Did he not write this op-ed for the Wall Street Journal?
Is he not funding virtually every NGO that is “rescuing” these migrants and bringing them to Europe?
What about this?
Is his Open Society Foundation not the main driver behind the flood?
Where is the “misrepresentation,” exactly?
“Last week the Fidesz-led government launched a nationwide billboard and television advertising campaign reminiscent of Europe’s darkest hours,” Vachon said, as quoted by Reuters.
“The Hungarian regime’s xenophobia and demonization of refugees are anti-European,” he said.
That is to say, “being invaded by Islam” is “pro-European.”
There is no other way to read that statement.
His comments come just days after Human Rights Watch (HRW) campaigner Lydia Gall stated that the billboards evoke memories of Nazi posters during the Second World War showing ‘The Laughing Jew.’
Meanwhile, Orban’s campaign has also been criticized by Jewish groups, including the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Congregations (Mazsihisz), which has called on the Hungarian prime minister to end it.
“This campaign, while not openly anti-Semitic, clearly has the potential to ignite uncontrolled emotions, including anti-Semitism,” the federation said last week, as quoted by Reuters.
Orban quickly responded in a letter posted by state news agency MTI on Friday, saying it was his duty to protect Hungarians – including the country’s some 100,000 Jews – from illegal migration.
“The person who uses his wealth, power, influence and a network of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) funded by him to settle millions of migrants in Hungary and the European Union puts our future in jeopardy,” Orban wrote.
“The billionaire speculator George Soros has made it quite clear repeatedly that this is precisely what he wants to do,” he said.
However, Vachon called this conclusion a “fantasy” on Tuesday.
“Soros’s actual position on migration is that the international community should provide more support to the developing countries that today host 89 percent of refugees and that Europe should accept several hundred thousand fully screened refugees through an orderly process of vetting and resettlement,” he said.
That isn’t his position. And claiming that is his position is beyond nonsensical.
His position is that Europe should be flooded with these people, and all of his programs are geared toward that.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I do support Orban’s stated positions with regards to Soros and migrants, but I do not support Orban.
Orban is an EU shill. While he is making all of these great statements, he is also continuing the process of EU federalization.
Please, please, please read the Wikipedia page on EU federalization.
As long as this process continues, it does not matter what Orban says or does with regards to migrants. He is putting Hunary into a position where they will no longer be able to make these decisions themselves. He is even pro-Euro. I believe he is working behind the scenes with Merkel and Brussels. None of any of this will matter when federalization is complete and Brussels is writing all of the laws for Hungary.
At that point, they won’t have any choice.
The only solution for Hungary is to keep their independence, and the only way to do that is by pivoting to Russia. And Orban has continually opposed this, adamantly. Meaning that all of his anti-migrant talk is meaningless.
