Orbán cabinet: Links between ‘Soros network’, European Commission obvious
The existence of links between the “Soros network” and the European Commission has again become obvious by the EC’s immediate attack against an information campaign by Hungary’s government, state secretary at the prime minister’s office Szabolcs Takács said in Brussels on Tuesday after meeting his European Union counterparts.
The agenda of a meeting of European Union ministers included for the fourth time the procedure against Hungary launched in line with Article 7 of the basic treaty because of deficiencies as regards the rule of law.
Takács said that
Frans Timmermans, first vice-president of the European Commission, brought up the issue of the government campaign during another point of the agenda “in a frenzied manner, shouting”, with total disregard to procedural rules.
“The cat is out of the bag,” Takács added and described Timmermans as the “spitzenkandidat of Brussels bureaucrats and the pro-migration elite.”
This elite wants to turn the European Union into a continent of immigrants and they have found allies for this endeavour in Hungary’s opposition, Takács said. In the interest of victory they are ready to accept “the Hungarian Socialists having formed an alliance with extreme racist and anti-Semitic Jobbik,” he added.
Timmermans is trying to make people believe that he can represent the commission without bias while his statements “were reeking of his dislike for the Hungarian government”, Takács said.
“Timmermans’ performance today clearly demonstrated that he regularly meets [US billionaire] George Soros and NGOs supported by the Soros network … which most obviously proves that what we say is reality,” he said.
Commenting on the accusations by the EC vice president, Takács said he had told the meeting that Timmermans, especially in light of his recent Budapest visit to the opposition Socialists’ congress, was incapable of separating his function in the commission from his political ambitions. As a result, his role in the commission should be suspended, which the Hungarian government has already requested, he added.
