George Soros, the billionaire investor and philanthropist for progressive causes, is widely known for championing left-wing issues in nations around the world, including supporting open borders and unrestrained immigration into Western countries.
Ironically for Soros, he has been rejected and scorned by his own country. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban just finished a six-week anti-Soros campaign, where Budapest was filled with posters and billboards of the Hungarian-born billionaire with the caption “Don’t let Soros get the last laugh,” and is pushing for legislation to combat the clandestine efforts of this man.

The campaign follows a series of attempts to stop Soros’ efforts in Hungary. Claims of Soros pushing for an influx of one million migrants into Europe per year caused Orban to fight for legislation that would force NGO’s to be transparent about where their funding comes from.
Any NGO identified as being paid off by Soros will then be dealt with.
“In Hungarian public life there is a single important element which is not transparent: Soros’s mafia-style network and its agent organizations,” said Orban’s spokesman Zoltan Kovacs. “The Hungarian standpoint is that illegal migration is clearly a matter of national security. We shall mobilize the political and legal power of the Hungarian state against anyone who undermines the security of Hungary – regardless of their origins, religious affiliation or wealth.” (via Daily Caller)
Soros responded by suggesting that this information campaign on the part of the Hungarian government was anti-Semitic, rather than having anything to do with his radical political agenda.
This is a typical response we see from left-leaning figures. Instead of facing the consequences of their actions or trying to express the reasoning behind their position, they instead bombard those who question them with a list of slanderous accusations, whether that be racist, sexist, misogynist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic, or any other label.
Soros in this instance used his religious affiliation as a means to label anyone who disagrees with his policies, rather than have an honest discussion about them.
The conservative leader Victor Orban continued to describe the billionaire as someone who had “ruined the lives of tens of millions of people” with currency speculation. This infamous incident that Orban is referring to hearkens back to 1992, where George Soros’ bet against the English pound cost the UK Treasury around 3.3 billion pounds and earned the billionaire the title “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England.” (via The Guardian)
The billionaire has also invested countless sums into groups such as Antifa, a left-wing domestic terrorist organization that has been known for violent riots and disruptions. (via New Jersey Homeland Security)
Soros has funded violent groups like Antifa. Should he be banned from the U.S.?
Orban added, “I believe that George Soros must not be underestimated: he is a powerful billionaire of enormous determination who, when it comes to his interests, respects neither God nor man.” (via Breitbart)
The Hungarian prime minister is standing as a courageous example for other countries to follow, one that Trump would do well to notice.
Hopefully more nations will begin to take a stand against the efforts of people like Soros.
