Born in Hungary in 1930, George Soros left in 1947 to work in London. In 1956, he immigrated to the United States, entering the world of finance and investments. In 1970, he launched his own hedge fund, Soros Fund Management.
It is undeniable that whatever he did worked, he has been financially successful. However, the way in which he uses his fortune leaves something to be desired.
He has been the source of dozens of controversies lately. It has been revealed that he is funding protests groups who use violence as a way of expressing themselves. He was deeply involved with Hillary’s campaign which is still under investigation. He even gave money to Jill Stein’s useless recount efforts.
We are now learning that America is not the only country where George Soros is using his power for evil. Prime Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary has recently spoken out about the man.
In his annual state of the nation speech Orban told Hungarian citizens, ““Large-bodied predators are swimming here in the waters. This is the trans-border empire of George Soros, with tons of money and international heavy artillery.”
Orban is referring to Soros’s group Open Society Foundations (OSF). The billionaire uses the organization to interfere with politics around the world.
What Prime Minister Orban is actually upset about is the same thing that many European countries are in turmoil over, refugee immigration.
Orban has been vocal about his opposition to taking in refugees and migrants. In 2015 he ordered fences built on Hungary’s southern borders with Serbia and Croatia to stop the migrant flow.
Soros, as Americans know, is a fierce advocate of allowing refugees in to all countries. This is just one of his continuing disputes with President Trump
Prime Minister Orban is claiming the same sort of interference by Soros in Hungary. He said that Soros’ organizations were “still working on bringing hundreds of thousands of migrants into Europe, contrary to the wishes of Hungarians and their government.”
Orban maintains his position on refugees and migrants, recently promising to keep migrants in border camps built from shipping containers while their asylum applications are being processed. This plan likely does not sit well with Soros.
His plan for Hungary was not met with approval from several sources. “Rounding up all men, women and children seeking asylum and detaining them months on end in container camps is a new low in Hungary’s race to the bottom on asylum seekers and refugees,” said Gauri van Gulik, Amnesty International’s deputy director for Europe.
Given the current conditions of countries that have accepted refugees such as Sweden, France, Germany, and the United States, it is difficult to judge Hungary’s decision as too harsh.
Citizens of all those countries are desperate, regretting the decision to open their borders, as refugees take advantage of them not only financially but also criminally. The countries and states with the largest numbers of refugees are the ones reporting huge spikes in crime, rape, and murder.
The refugee situation has gotten undeniably out of control. Yet when anyone, whether the Prime Minister of Hungary, or the President of the United States, attempts to combat the problem, they are attacked.
The reaction from Soros’ group showed little sympathy for the victims of the refugee crisis. A leaked memo from Open Society Foundations argues that Europe’s refugee crisis should be accepted as a “new normal,” and that the refugee crisis means “new opportunities” for Soros’ organization to influence immigration policies on a global scale.
Soros sees the problem solely as a way to make more money and increase the scope of his power.
“The refugee crisis is opening new opportunities for coordination and collaboration with other wealthy donors,” the memo also states. Clearly, there is little room in the greedy man’s business plan for human suffering. He is not encouraging acceptance of refugees for humanitarian reasons but financial ones.
It is not difficult to understand the reasoning behind Orban’s desire to keep refugees out of his country. While his plan may seem cold, other countries are frequently proving the disastrous consequences of an open door policy.
The Hungarian Prime Minister is fighting just as President Trump is. They both have rallied for the protection of their citizens first and foremost; the rest of the world should come second.
While easy to call these men heartless, the truth actually is a heart so full of compassion that they will sacrifice their popularity to do the right thing.
George Soros has proven beyond a doubt that he will try and destroy anyone who gets in his way. He loves money and only engages in philanthropy as a means to obtaining more wealth.
His type of corruption is what the world needs to eliminate. We should be applauding men like Trump and Orban, those who are willing to stand strong against their enemies to protect their countries.
