Hungary’s Victor Orban seems to have no time for George Soros employee Michael Ignatieff

‘Enough is enough,’ Michael Ignatieff says, giving Hungary a deadline in political battle with university

Michael Ignatieff, the rector of the George Soros-founded Central European University in Hungary, is saying “enough is enough” in the university’s wait for certification from the right-wing government of Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Mr. Ignatieff has given the government, which has refused high-level meetings to work on the issue, a deadline of Dec. 1 to come to the table, or the university will shift its U.S.-accredited courses across the border to Vienna.


Gee I wonder why… Kicked Out of Hungary, Soros‘s Open Society Foundations Re-Opens in Berlin

…In addition, earlier this year author and sociologist Frank Furedi said he had witnessed young globalist activists working for Soros, who he dubbed the billionaire’s “missionaries”, boast about their role in toppling governments around the world including in Libya, Egypt, and Ukraine.

Recalling his experience at an Open Society Youth Exchange in Hungary in 2013, he wrote: “Soros believes that if the people voted the wrong way, he is entitled to thwart decisions made by them.

“Soros does not believe in the legitimacy of borders nor in the authority of national electorates. Consequently, he feels entitled to influence and if possible direct the political destiny of societies all over the world,” the sociologist said, writing in the Daily Telegraph.

Hungary Defiant in the Face of EU Censure

The European Parliament has voted to pursue unprecedented disciplinary action against Hungary over alleged breaches of the European Union’s “fundamental values.” The EU has accused the Hungarian government of attacks against the media, minorities and the rule of law.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has denied the charges, and said they are a retaliation for his government’s refusal to take in migrants from the Muslim world.

The censure represents another salvo in a showdown between pro- and anti-EU forces over populism and nationalism ahead of European Parliament elections in May 2019.

David Goldman: Anti-Soros Is Not Anti-Semitism

David P. Goldman has written a bracing defense of Viktor Orbán’s government, insisting that Hungary is one of the friendliest places in the world for Jews and that any leader in his right mind would oppose the political machinations of George Soros.

Writing in the conservative journal First Things on Friday, Goldman observed that the irresponsible accusations of anti-Semitism leveled against Prime Minister Orbán hinge upon his vigorous resistance to Mr. Soros’ attempts to work around the democratic process to push Hungary in the direction of open borders.

Hungary: the bad boy of the EU

Brussels fears Hungary because it refuses to bow to imperial technocracy.

According to the political establishment that runs the EU, Hungary has become a xenophobic, authoritarian society. The Hungarian government and in particular the prime minister, Viktor Orban, are continually denounced for their alleged violations of EU values. The mainstream Western media have picked up the message that it is okay to hate Hungary. They give the impression that Hungary is a totalitarian and viciously anti-Semitic society in which critics of the regime are silenced and the government dominates the media.

Hungarian PM Orban Getting Tougher on Immigration: ‘We Are Building a Christian Democracy’

After a huge electoral victory that saw his party win a two-thirds super-majority, Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán has announced tougher immigration rules and his vision of a Hungary built on “Christian democracy”.

If The Left Doesn’t Like Hungary’s ‘Fascists,’ It Should Stop Creating Them

If you get your news from the mainstream media, you might think that Hungary just suffered a fascist coup. What actually happened is that, in fair and free elections, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his center-right Fidesz Party easily won another term by defeating a divided opposition led by mediocrities.

The overwrought media response to a free election in a small Central European nation reveals far more about the media than it does about Hungary. Throughout that nation, the freedoms of speech, press and assembly are being exercised against Orbán and his party. This is more than can be said for the European countries whose media and cultural elites are denouncing the Hungarian PM. They do everything that they accuse Orbán of — and worse.

‘More Hungarians share Viktor Orban’s anti-immigration stance than just his party supporters’

The landslide victory for the party of Hungarian PM Viktor Orban has been criticized within the EU and cheered by Euroskeptics, but most agree that it was his stance on the European migrant crisis that secured the popular support.

The decisive election win for the Fidesz Party was “a surprise,” to Gabor Stier, political commentator for the Hungarian Magyar Nemzet newspaper, who says Orban used people’s fear of immigrants to secure the win.

“Everybody was sure that Orban and Fidesz would achieve victory. But getting two thirds of the ballot (133 seats out of 199 in the parliament) for the third time in a row was more than they expected themselves,” he said.
