Hungary Moves to Eliminate All NGO’s Funded by Globalist George Soros

Budapest, Hungary – In a move indicative of a major push back against the dominant western-led neoliberal global order, Hungary has announced plans to purge all groups funded by globalist mega-donor George Soros.
The European Union member will use “all the tools at its disposal” to target and “sweep out” all non-governmental organizations funded by Soros, a Hungarian-born financier who has become one of the U.S. Democratic Party’s major sources of funding, according to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s ruling party.
Soros’s web of organizations “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told reporters Tuesday, referring to the Soros’s primary operator, the Open Source Institute.
“These organizations must be pushed back with all available tools, and I think they must be swept out, and now I believe the international conditions are right for this with the election of the new president (in the U.S.),” Nemeth said, according to a video posted on HirTV’s website.
Previously, Trump accused the 86-year-old billionaire of being part of “a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities” in a campaign ad, although Trump’s current thinking on Soros is unknown.
And while many NGO’s perform vital functions and deliver much-needed services, they are also often used as imperialist vessels by the dominant neoliberal order to attempt to influence the internal politics of sovereign nation-states.
Keep in mind that Soros-affiliated organizations across the world have been deeply connected to numerous color revolutions, the Arab Spring, and a number of other political uprisings across the globe. Although democracy promotion is the stated mission, in reality, the many Soros-linked organizations operate to forward the Western globalist agenda – often working to foment dissent and revolution.
According to a report in New Eastern Outlook, Soros has done exactly that in Ukraine:
The totality of what is revealed in the three hacked documents show that Soros is effectively the puppet-master pulling most of the strings in Kiev. Soros Foundation’s Ukraine branch, International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) has been involved in Ukraine since 1989. His IRF doled out more than $100 million to Ukrainian NGOs two years before the fall of the Soviet Union, creating the preconditions for Ukraine’s independence from Russia in 1991. Soros also admitted to financing the 2013-2014 Maidan Square protests that brought the current government into power.
Soros’ foundations were also deeply involved in the 2004 Orange Revolution that brought the corrupt but pro-NATO Viktor Yushchenko into power with his American wife who had been in the US State Department. In 2004 just weeks after Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation had succeeded in getting Viktor Yushchenko as President of Ukraine, Michael McFaul wrote an OpEd for the Washington Post. McFaul, a specialist in organizing color revolutions, who later became US Ambassador to Russia, revealed:
Did Americans meddle in the internal affairs of Ukraine? Yes. The American agents of influence would prefer different language to describe their activities — democratic assistance, democracy promotion, civil society support, etc. — but their work, however labeled, seeks to influence political change in Ukraine.
Anyone familiar with the history of the Soros Open Society Foundations in Eastern Europe, and around the world, since the late 1980’s, will know that his supposedly philanthropic “democracy-building” projects in Poland, Russia, or Ukraine in the 1990’s allowed Soros the businessman to literally plunder the former communist countries’ wealth, according to the New Eastern Outlook.
During the 2016 presidential cycle, Soros committed $25 million dollars to the unsuccessful 2016 campaign of Hillary Clinton. Per standard Clinton operating procedure, this was indicative of the symbiotic relationship of favors between the billionaire and his array of political puppets across the globe.
Essentially, Soros uses his billions to attempt to socially engineer countries into a position favorable to his investments and worldview. The financier uses his web of connected global projects to forward his progressive agenda. Even in the U.S., the hidden hand of Soros can be seen clearly as the driver behind the Democratic agenda.
Hungary’s Orban was the first EU head to publicly support Trump’s election campaign, and was reportedly invited by Trump to visit the US.
According to a report by Zero Hedge:
In 2014, Orban personally ordered the state audit agency to probe foundations financed by Norway and said that civil society groups financed from abroad were covers for “paid political activists.” As a result of Trump’s victory, Orban has felt empowered to further last out against Europe’s established structures, and its core supporters.
As Bloomberg notes, Orban and his administration have repeatedly singled out NGOs supported by Soros, a prominent Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party supporter, with a wide network of organizations that promote democracy in formerly communist eastern Europe.
The use of NGO’s to attempt to undermine states not beholden to the current Western neoliberal order has been an ongoing point of contention, which saw Russia kick USAID out of the country in 2012 amid accusations of attempting to incite protests and influence the Russian presidential elections.
And while Soros is no a James Bond villain, the billionaire financier’s efforts to control the direction of global politics, though the use of his vast fortune, cannot be disregarded, or understated, as it has a major effect on the manifestation and direction of global politics. When one person leverages such massive amounts of wealth into influencing global political discourse, it’s the average person’s voice that is drowned out by the sea of cash.
