George Soros, Hungary…And The American Deep State?
It’s a measure of how few governments have any serious interest in challenging true threats that once more we find ourselves congratulating Hungary.
These words of praise arise in response to the news that a Sorosoid lair – or, as EUObs prefers, ‘an intellectual hub’ – in Budapest is in a terrible tizzy because of what the ‘intellectuals‘ say is the Hungarian government’s attempt to shut it down.
The Central European University’s Rector, Michael Ignatieff indulged in a fine old rant last week.
“We will never close this university, we will maintain the continuity of our academic programs no matter what…CEU will resolve to all available legal remedies if it is passed!”
The arrogant academic is telling the democratically elected government that the draft law has to be scrapped…
Funnily enough, there’s no mention of the Canadian Ignatieff’s left-liberal politics – he was a wannabe prime minister and is a known champion of ‘migrants.’
He has not hesitated to use his university position to pontificate on the issue. https://www.ceu.edu/article/2016-01-28/michael-ignatieff-right-have-rights-migrants-refugees-and-duties-states-ceu
Hungary argues that the proposed reform is necessary because it had learned that no less than 28 foreign-linked universities were operating “unlawfully”.
Zoltan Boltag, Minister of Human Resources, who is not only a politician but a Protestant pastor, has spoken plainly on the reasons for the government’s moves – the bill was prompted by “national security considerations” and the needs to ensure that the university courses meet “foreign policy priorities.”
And the government’s concern about foreign policy seems to be justified, because the American Embassy in Budapest has jumped straight into Hungary’s internal affairs, issuing a statement declaring that CEU enjoys strong bipartisan support in the US government.
“The United States opposes any effort to compromise the operations or independence of the university.”
So how come this matter, quite clearly none of America’s business, is being turned into an international incident by blow-hard diplomacy on the part of the USA?
We know that, under Obama misrule, the US Embassy in Budapest aligned itself with very unwholesome elements Embassies issue joint statement celebrating Budapest Pride …
…so it may be that the Trump Administration needs to clean out the dead-beats there.
Are there ‘Deep State’ creeps still running the show within that diplomatic outpost?
As we read on, we get a clue.
It is a major and symbolic postgraduate institution founded by Soros…
….who has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into central and eastern Europe
We have seen that menace’s name before, not just in Hungary…- Now It’s Hungary! Soros Subversives Exposed Again! but elsewhere in Europe– Smash The Sorosoids! Macedonia Stands Up To Evil! …and never for doing good, only for funding far-left agitprop outfits, and NOT only in Europe!
- Soros has woven a web of influential left-wing operations, including Media Matters and Center for American Progress, that advance his socialist ideology.
- He has financial ties to America’s most well-known media personalities, including CNN’s David Gergen and Christiane Amanpour.
- To the tune of $6.4 million, Soros has worked behind the scenes to fund smear campaigns against 2016 conservative presidential hopefuls Rick Perry, Scott Walker, and Bobby Jindal.
- He has funneled millions of dollars into journalism schools and more than 180 media outlets across the nation.
But sensible countries are stepping up to the subversive plutocrat’s intrusions – none more so than Hungary’s.
The targeting of CEU’s is seen as part of a wider crackdown by the Orban government on organisations linked or funded by Hungarian-American financier Soros.
In January, a top official from Orban’s ruling party said that NGOs funded by Soros should be “swept out” of the country.
As one expects, EUObs can’t report this kind of issue objectively
If CEU is forced out, it would be a major blow to Hungary’s reputation and to higher education in the country.
No, it wouldn’t.
If CEU is using its presence in Budapest to pump liberalism into the minds of young Hungarians, damn right it should be sent packing.
And guess which other unwholesome institution and which lousy leftist sticky-beak have been sniffing around this contrived controversy?
THE EUSSR, OF COURSE!
According to a source, commission vice-president Frans Timmermans raised the issue…
Yes, we remember him well!.
