Hungarian PM Orbán Blames Soros For Muslim Invasion

 

By WILLIAM MAYER

November 1, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – According to the widely quoted, left-wing German news journal Der Spiegel, Hungary’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán is charging George Soros, the shadowy American Marxist billionaire, with aiding and abetting the massive Islamic invasion of Europe, which Western media is attempting to minimize, dealing with it as simply a “refugee and/or humanitarian crisis.”

As reported today in Der Spiegel:

“Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orbán blames the American billionaire and philanthropist George Soros for the current refugee movements in Europe…’This Western way of thinking and this activist network is perhaps the most represented by George Soros,’ Orbán added. [Soros] A native of Hungary promotes…worldwide initiatives and groups who work for democracy and human rights. His Open Society Foundation ( OSF ) supports Budapest activists who help refugees…” [source, Ungarn: Orbán gibt US-Milliardär Soros Mitschuld an Flüchtlingskrise?, Hungary: Orbán, Is US Billionaire Soros Complicit In Refugee Crisis? - Google translation from the German]

Soros is the definition of ambition and has shown great interest [and notable success] in the art of cultural manipulation/engineering [ala Gramsci]. Towards that end his Open Society Institute and Open Society Foundations [OSI/OSF] have created an often impenetrable, opaque array of networks, working off the same master plan. Through his array of NGOs, he is applying heavy social and legal pressure around the world to force transformational change of the type that Barack Obama has made infamous in the United States

The legal aspect of Soros’ method is especially problematic because his intent is to strangle the West with its own entrails, using the rights and freedoms which accrue to non-servile societies to silence dissent under the rubric of alleged bigotry, especially Islamophobia. This is taking a page straight from the Muslim Brotherhood’s concept of cultural jihad, which makes it very difficult for a liberal society to develop defensive measures that will not be ruled illegal when they run afoul of a skewed notion of  “civil liberties.”

Early in his career as an activist, Soros turned his interests towards Eastern Europe. Upon the fall of the Soviet Union, “Soros set up his first non-U.S. foundation in Hungary in 1984…As communism collapsed, Soros moved quickly to seize the revolutionary moment…” [source, About us, Open Society Foundations]

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss…

Regarding Hungary, it’s difficult to reject PM Orbán’s critique of Soros’ activities because his hand is heavy indeed. Perhaps the billionaire feels that he has a right to propagandize his former fellow countrymen, having been born in Budapest as Schwartz György in 1930. With Hungary now serving as a point of entry for many of the so-called refugees, his media operation there is pulling every societal string which might possibly be used to shift public perception away from the truth, that Europe is under Islamic attack which threatens to simply overwhelm the traditional native culture – an undeclared colonial war of occupation.

For example there is the Hungarian Helsinki Committee [and its affiliates in Poland and Romania] which together serve as agit-prop portals advancing the cultural Marxism which serves as the essential kernel of Soros worldwide image machine.

The memes are all familiar:

“The Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC) is a human rights NGO founded in 1989…The HHC promotes legal education and training in fields relevant to its activities, both in Hungary and abroad. The HHC’s main areas of activities are centered on monitoring the human rights performance of law enforcement agencies and the judicial system, as well as protecting the rights of asylum seekers and foreigners in need of international protection…” [source, 2014 Annual Report, HHC]

The ridiculous nature of the claims made by HHC are immediately apparent, given the already widely understood reality of what is taking place in Europe. The below cited example is typical of the thinking represented by these groups. Oddly, we weren’t able t access the text from the OSF/OSI website since the link was broken at the time of this writing, requiring us to data-mine it from the Internet Archive. Note the similarity between these arguments those used in the United States to support unlimited illegal immigration.

“There is no migration crisis in Hungary; Migration fills in the gaps left by native-born Hungarians; These people are refugees in the purest legal sense; The inflammatory way that officials and the national media in Hungary describe the current influx of refugees creates confusion, hostility, and fear among our citizenry. This discourse has only exacerbated the xenophobia deeply entrenched in a part of the Hungarian population, and made the efforts of ordinary citizens and organizations working with asylum seekers and migrants more difficult.” [source, Márta Pardavi & Gábor Gyulai, What You Need to Know About the Refugee Crisis in Hungary

Soros has poured untold millions into his global operation and is heavily invested in U.S. media to the extent that it’s difficult to determine where his hard left politics ends and where American journo begins, assuming there is any separation at all - a dubious proposition. As the Media Research Center analyzes part of the OSI/OSU U.S. effort, the left-wing faux investigative reporting group Pro-Publica, which of course has already grabbed two Pulitzers, the Soros technique comes into focus:

“For George Soros and ProPublica's other liberal backers, it was again proof that a strategy of funding journalism was a powerful way to influence the American public. It's a strategy that Soros has been deploying extensively in media both in the United States and abroad. Since 2003, Soros has spent more than $52 million funding media properties, including the infrastructure of news - journalism schools, investigative journalism and even industry organizations.” [source, Bill Gainor, Soros Spends Over $48 Million Funding Media Organizations]
 
PJ Media, referring to Soros as a convicted felon, [“His insider-trading conviction was upheld by the highest court in France on June 14, 2006” - Wiki] writes about his heavy involvement in undermining the integrity of the U.S. electoral process:
 

“The New York Times has revealed what some of us already knew: billionaire convicted felon George Soros is bankrolling attacks on election integrity laws in advance of the 2016 election…funding efforts to attack laws designed to aid election integrity in Wisconsin, North Carolina [and] Ohio…Soros is prepared to spend $5 million or more on the effort.”. [J. Christian Adams, Revealed: Convicted Felon George Soros Bankrolling Attacks On Election Integrity]

 
Though the incestuous nature of the U.S. media’s relationship with the left should come as no surprise, the lead role which George Soros is taking in the attempted destabilization of Europe is promulgated by the extreme nature of his politics as well as the MSM’s complicity.
 
As is often the case with revolutionaries, Soros’ operation is exactly the opposite of what it claims to be [example, Orwell – “war is peace]. He appropriated/co-opted and then mangled philosopher Karl Popper’s theory of the “Open Society” [he was briefly a student of Poppers]. However, Popper totally rejected the Hegelian notion of historicism [an essential component of Marxism], which utopians use to support their grand schemes, arguing that they are the irresistible result of the inevitable flow of history. Popper argued that society should be based upon the principles of classical liberalism which define the Western experience. Soros’ cultural Marxism is the antithesis of what a truly open society is, but that hasn’t stopped him from the skillful use of high sounding philosophical notions about which many have little understanding.
