Socialists demand proof for existence of ‘Soros Plan’

The Socialist head of parliament’s national security committee has called on Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to appear before the body and present evidence that there is a “Soros Plan” the government has been referring to.

Zsolt Molnár told a press conference on Thursday that unless Orbán can prove the existence of such a scheme which the government has linked to US billionaire George Soros, the ruling parties should stay away from the upcoming parliamentary election because “they have been feeding obvious lies to the Hungarian public”.

Molnár insisted that a “Soros Plan” did not exist but was “invented by (ruling) Fidesz’s PR machinery to mislead the people and divert attention from the actual state of the country”.

The Socialist politician added that other opposition members of the committee, delegated by green LMP and radical nationalist Jobbik, also agreed with his proposal to hear the prime minister on the subject.

Fidesz group leader Gergely Gulyás told a press conference on a different subject that Orbán would not appear before the committee, and added that the body “does not need to pursue a political witch hunt”.

    @Socialists,
    “NEWS FLASH”, socialists now demand proof for the existence of UFOs and aliens!
    By the way, the 18 Billion dollars from SOROS to EC, was really money from the Easter Bunny.
    Don’t worry George, the IRS will not find what you did with their money.

    I am very surprised about the fact that so many people in the Hungarian opposition parties are really digging out the biggest nonsense a person can think of. Do they not read objective newspapers, do they not look at a neutral ‘news program’ or are they all on the payroll of Mr Soros, or better Schwartz? Do they not realize how ridiculous they are? Orbán is right by spending his precious time on other, more important things.
    I have given up hope that there is still some understanding between the ears of left-wing people, but I hope that they will start thinking about the things Soros has done and that he still has in his diary. It would adorn the MSZP, Jobbik and LMP if they started an in-depth investigation into Soros and his Open Society, from which only Soros will benefit. I will help them a little bit free of charge:
    The Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros is deeply hated by many people in Europe. How does Soros spread his ideas? In the summer of 2015, human shock waves spilled from border to border and beyond the wooden doors of the renovated textile warehouse where István Rév holds office. With thousands of migrants stranded in a flooding tent camp in front of the East Station (Keleti) in Budapest, Central European University (CEU) could not remain silence, says the professor of history and political science. The university, founded and funded by the Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros, arranged study places for refugees, provided them with practical information about what to expect in Europe and financed the distribution of medicines. For a month, the exhibition gallery was in the academic archive, of which the 65-year-old Rév is director, crammed with relief supplies for the Keleti campsite. We were among the first to decide to help, says the teacher, with slightly sloppy curly hair and a suit jacket. He did not want to mention the many rapes, vandalism and other criminal activities of these pocket fillers.
    The university and its founder Soros – according to business magazine Forbes 23rd in the rankings of richest individuals worldwide – stood side by side in their pro-refugee position. The EU should also give money to receive 1 million refugees each year, Soros said. No unusual statement for one of the world’s foremost political philanthropists: the hedge fund magnate born in Budapest in 1930 is known as a generous donor to Democratic election campaigns in the US. In the Netherlands his foundation, the Open Society Foundations (OSF), acted as – more modestly – sponsor of the yes camp in the referendum on Ukraine. Over the past 30 years, the OSF has spent more than € 11 billion to promote the formation of pluralistic and democratic ‘open societies’ (but only to the desire of Soros!). This includes refugees, according to Soros. But as is usually the case with Soros: as strong as his position are the merciless reactions of his opponents. Soros supports organizations – Hungarian individuals, Hungarian organizations and international organizations – which aim to curb the Hungarian government and force us to recede, Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán recently stated in his Friday radio-hour on state broadcasting. Orbáns Fidesz party, figurehead of the anti-immigration movement in Europe, depicts Soros as the pivot in a master plan to undermine European nation states by the arrival of hundreds of thousands of refugees. Orbán: They want us to withdraw our stringent laws, they want us to let in the migrants, bring down the fence, and so on. When Bill Clinton recently warned that Hungary was on its way to a ‘Putin-like dictatorship,’ Orbán concluded correctly: George Soros speaks through the mouth of Clinton. It is clear to him: There is a shadow power in Central Europe.
    That the 85-year-old speculator – who got rich in controversial maneuvers like a billion-dollar gamble against the British pound in 1992 – used his deep pockets to exercise political influence is true. That makes him head jut on the right in Western Europe and certainly in the US. Conservatives in particular do not like his cosmopolitan, ethical-liberal agenda and his support for organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International or Spior, which maps discrimination against Muslims in the Netherlands. But to the east of Vienna, his name is really topped with vitriol, in media campaigns of often epic proportions.
    The club of its enemies reaches out to supporters of the national-conservative government in Poland – where the OSF invests in think tanks, NGOs and indirectly also in the opposition-minded Gazeta Wyborcza – to the Russian government they hate. In Moscow, the Public Prosecution Service put the national OSF department at the end of 2016 on a list of undesirable organizations. According to the prosecutor, the club of the pro-Ukrainian Soros is a threat to the foundations of the constitutional system of the Russian Federation and state security. What all these governments have in common is a conservative-nationalist agenda and suspicion of civil society organizations that are opposed to authoritarian policy. Few other networks are as active in the financing of that midfield as Soros’ OSF. From anti-corruption research to LGBT rights, from mental health care to the fate of the disadvantaged Roma minority: often the OSF is one of the few interested parties. Thousands of Roma would not have finished their school without Soros, says Rév.
    The commitment of the Soros born as ‘György Schwartz’ was determined by his experiences with fascists and communists in his native country. Soros survived the Nazi occupation thanks to false identity documents arranged by his father. He himself had already passed WW I and the Russian Revolution. When he moved to London in 1947, he became a pupil of Karl Popper at the London School of Economics. The philosopher and his magnum opus The Open Society and its Enemies, a plea for liberal-democratic societies and against totalitarian tendencies from the left and the right, make a big impression. The millions that Soros earns in the City and later in New York, he leaves back to Eastern Europe from 1984 onwards. Legendary is his donation of hundreds of photocopiers to Hungarian libraries at that time, with which dissidents widely distributed banned literature. Today, Soros’ presence in the center of Budapest is tangible: the Hungarian headquarters of the Open Society Foundations are located in the same building block as the campus of the Central European University, a stone’s throw from the Hungarian Parliament. The university, which focuses on the social sciences, was given the mission in 1991 to ‘facilitate the transition process from dictatorship to democracy’ in the former Eastern Bloc. With 1,400 master and doctoral students from 97 different countries, it is the most cosmopolitan university in Central and Eastern Europe. Necessary students can count on substantial scholarships, teachers usually earn their spurs at other prestigious universities, at international organizations or in politics. At the graduation ceremony in June – an event where the founder always gives a speech in toga – Soros described the university as ‘one of my most successful creations’.
