Speaking on Kossuth Radio’s ‘180 Minutes’ programme on Friday, Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán, criticised the European Union for abusing its power with EU member states and for “eating out of the hand” of globalist billionaire, George Soros.
Orbán discussed the EU’s escalation of legal action against Hungary over the country’s wish to regulate foreign funding of NGOs (many of which are funded by Soros) in a bid to ensure transparency of civil society organisations.
Orbán said: “The question is how much longer Brussels can stand being – how shall I put it – the laughing stock of Europe.”
Speaking of the EU’s legal action against Hungary, he added:
“The whole of the European Union is in trouble because its leaders and bureaucrats adopt decisions like this. The people support the ideal of the European Union. At the same time, they can’t stand the leadership of the EU, because it insults the member states with things like this, and it abuses its power. Everyone in Europe can see that. This is why the European leadership is not respected.”
In true Viktor Orbán-style, the Hungarian PM didn’t leave us guessing as to who he meant, when he continued:
“The starting-point is that the laws must be observed by everyone in Europe – including billionaires, and even US-Hungarian dual citizens and the organisations funded by them. Hungary cannot compromise on this.”
The European Immigration Plan of George Soros
Orbán, who sparked controversy in July when he posted thousands of billboards around Hungary featuring George Soros’s face and the tagline: “Let’s not let Soros have the last laugh”, also told his interviewer that Hungary has recently discovered and revealed the hidden underground network of George Soros. Orbán added: “…day after day we shall prove what the connections are.”
Orbán suggested that the bureaucrats who are currently preparing a report on Hungary are “all Soros’s people”, adding:
“They’re featured on the list that was made public in the international press: the list of Soros’s reliable allies. They’re eating out of his hand. They’re going to write a report which will conclude that it would be better if there was no fence, it would be better if we let in “refugees”, it would be better if we let in migrants and give them money, and it would be better if they were distributed.”
“We have revealed that there is a Soros plan. The existence of this has been admitted to by the author himself, so revealing it was no great achievement, but at least we’ve placed it in the political spotlight.”
Disagreeing with his interviewer’s claims that Soros simply made a statement in the European Parliament about immigration to Europe, rather than put forward a plan, Orbán responded:
“George Soros didn’t just make a statement. He communicated a plan. It’s just that we don’t remember things that happened two years ago, because since then so many other things have happened.”
The plan which Orbán is referring to dates back to September 2015 when Soros himself published an article titled: “George Soros: Here’s my plan to solve the asylum chaos”. The plan suggested:
“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.”
He couldn’t have been any clearer than that.
Despite this, the mainstream media and establishment newspapers (such as the Financial Times) have denied any such plan exists, often suggesting any notion of the idea to be a – wait for it – “anti-Semitic conspiracy theory”.
At least Viktor Orbán is speaking out for us.
