Soros Group Vows To Stay In Hungary Despite Plans For Government Crackdown On NGOs

The Open Society Foundations has vowed to continue operations inside of Hungary despite plans from the country’s ruling party to crackdown on NGOs funded by the Hungarian-born George Soros.

Hungary plans to use “all the tools at its disposal” to “sweep out” NGOs funded by Soros, which “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the country’s ruling Fidesz party, told reporters on Tuesday.

“I feel that there is an opportunity for this, internationally,” because of Trump’s election victory, state news service MTI reported Nemeth as saying.

Hungarian lawmakers will debate legislation allowing the European Union member to audit NGOs, according to the country’s parliamentary agenda.

The Open Society Foundations responded to the planned crackdown on Wednesday, saying that the NGO will stay put and continue working inside the country.

“The Open Society Foundations will continue to work in Hungary despite government opposition to our mission of fairer, accountable societies,”’ the organization’s president, Christopher Stone, told Bloomberg News.


“In Hungary and around the world we are more focused than ever on working with local groups to strengthen democratic practice, rights, and justice.”

Hungry’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who ironically received Soros funded scholarships to study at British universities, has made public his plans to build what he calls an “illiberal state,” similar to Russia and Turkey.

“I don’t think that our European Union membership precludes us from building an illiberal new state based on national foundations,” Orban said in a 2014 speech. He listed Russia, Turkey and China as examples of “successful” nations, “none of which is liberal and some of which aren’t even democracies.”

Orban has said that civil society groups funded from abroad were covers for “paid political activists,” and accused Soros of being a prominent member of a circle of “activists” trying to undermine European nations by supporting the migrant crisis.

Soros gave nearly $10 million to Clinton super PAC Priorities USA during the presidential campaign and handed another $33 million to the group through Open Society Foundations (OSF), which he funds and controls.

The liberal billionaire has also come under fire for giving more than $33 million in grants to the Black Lives Matter movement through his foundations.

In late 2015, Russian Prosecutor General’s Office recognized Soros’s Open Society Institute and another affiliated organization as undesirable groups, banning Russian citizens and organizations from participation in any of their projects.

According to the prosecutor’s office, the activities of the Open Society Institute and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation were a threat to the foundations of Russia’s Constitutional order and national security.

I don't always participate in political discussions.  But when I do, I prefer Zero Hedge.

Stay Hungry, my friends.

So does that mean the palindrome will be sponsoring street thugs and a purple purge in Budapest? All in the interests of creating a fairer (The Libtards love that word!) more open accountable and democratic society don't you know.

It seems to me that he is living proof that imperial Washington has two sets of rules and laws; one for the Billionaire Oligarchs and their henchmen and cronies, another for everyone else.

I think the capital of Hungry is Buddhapissed or something like that? ...;-)

Whatever it is, now is probably a good time for the Russian Spetzorswallows unit to kidnap him and throw him in a Russian jail, where he dies under mysterious circumstances.

I think Russia should donate some S-400's to Hungary so they can shoot down Soros' plane any time it enters their airspace.

Russians are pissed, soros is most definately on their shit list.


I'm sure hungary will terminate a member of the walking dead to get much needed clout on the world stage thats not related to the emperor and the death star...

Does the facility at Terezin still have accommodations available for the Soros gang?

Damn, half the posters here would probably love to be one of these "mysterious circumstances".

Trump team requested information from RF on Soros NGOs in order to legally deport Soros to Russia. Just like the skinny man requested information from Turkey on gulan to make decision to deport Gulan back to Turkey.  short rope with a long drop.

It's all over. The Tylers have corrected the Typo in the Headline. Shame, it's always nice to have a little light relief!

wildbad's picture

he is and he will.

the palindrome uses the lack of international law and human's tendency toward compassion to further his evil and self-serving plans.

it has been seen through.

he and his NGOs are the shock troops to Merkel's empty pathetic globalist rhetoric

Is there a new website somewhere where the old Zero Hedge crowd (circa 2012) goes to read original, thoughtful posts on the economy and financial system?

I’m getting a little tired with all the dumb bullshit here now.  I prefer the company of people with a full compliment of 46 individual chromosomes. 

BabaLooey's picture

OK dickhead.

For you, it's called

In case, you hadn't noticed, Mr. Van Winkie, ZH posts plenty of financial news, and reports ON the economy.

The problem is, Magoo - the financial "system" is as broke as your Grandads dick, and the economy's has been in the liberal ditch since 2009. 

"Original, thoughtful posts" are still here. 

Authenticate yourself, Mister you ain't been here since 2012 - since you don't show YOU were here in 2012. 

Otherwise, you need to go back to Sesame Street and learn to count. I belive that "original and thoughtful" show is still on.

barndoor's picture

The posts are still okay, although the quality is sinking fast.  But the best part used to be the back and forth in the comments - smart people having thoughtful debate.  This has gradually degraded into "Obumer is a fag".  Not really my bag.

I became a prepper in 2009 - after reading up on the causes of the financial crisis and reading the "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy.  I found ZH in 2012, after a post on the Canadian banks found some coverage in national press up here.

The crazy aggressive tone of your post is part of the reason I still come here - it's good for a laugh now and again.

Tristan Ludlow's picture

So, what kind of prepper are you?  Sure don't sound like any I know.  If you started in 2009, then you should have found zerohedge by then.  Would like to know what kind of "preps" you have.


BTW, "Obummer is a fag."  He was and still is a viable threat to our continued liberty even if he is just a Soros sock puppet.  


Soros will never die.  He lives on hate and still has much work to do.

This post right here is why I still like ZH. You made a critical comment, got dickpunched for it, then came back swinging with a decent take and insight. A millennial would have gone crawling into their safe space.

But you're still an asshole.

barndoor's picture

You don't find the "Obumer is a fag" comments tiresome?  

How many times can one read that before it starts to become uninteresting?  

I guarantee that Obama has scored more quality pussy than 95% of the people on this site.  The average dickhead here saying that Michelle is ugly recently had to upgrade to a doublewide trailer to accommodate their wife/wife's mechanical scooter.  Plus, I really don't give a shit who Obama fucks, or what his wife looks like. 

Just an example - I could go on.

Every now and then a comments appear, like yours, whose intellectual sophistication is beyond that of us mortal men. As 'fight club' members many of us  enjoy being beneath those who have elevated themselves well above us 'deplorables' and 'irredeemables'. Indeed, many of us are misfits, defiant and grandiose and like our patriotic Forefathers don't like what we see in the political and economic arena around us. Indeed, we don't conform to conventional 'sustainable' political correct establishment, individual freedom, liberty and Constitutional destroying bull shit, whose stink has become so nose hair burning that we have a desire to blow our snot all over their fantasy, Statist, collectivist, totalitarian, global warming, fascist Utopian propagandized dreams. 

I have a comparison for you 'barndoor'...and see if you agree. Here we have a current Washington administration where you have educated politicians, bureaucrats, establishment economists, MSM and political administrators running the country, coming from the most prestigious ivy league mind control University tribes that our great Nation has to offer and the best they can do is bankrupt us. They live in the alternate reality as they think they can control markets, the main premise of Marxism. I've come to observe, based on their record, they're dumb as a fence post when it comes to economics, society, foreign affairs common sense and stupid enough to repeat the past braindead historical errors, look at their record, look at their record, just loooook at their...record. I would take most any, hard working, business owning, individual liberty loving 'fight club' member and bet apples to oranges they could have done a better job, in a heart beat. 

See, it's just a matter of perception.

Good assessment, GRUNT.  I agree apart from thinking they're stupid.  USSA is the greatest historical example of siphoning wealth upwards while still looking like freedom and democracy to the masses. I think the primary goal is to bankrupt us. I reckon bubbles and crashes are a convenient part of the plan. The greatest accomplishment is to convince the masses that they can't control the market's and haven't figured out how to siphon regardless of the state of the market or economy.

I'm a total noob--12 weeks and counting. But I do love a bit of name-calling when both sides are intelligent.

This is the article that introduced me to ZH, all the way back in August of 2011:

Is that sufficient authentication?

BabaLooey's picture

Fair enough.

Remind me to play poker with you.

You show your hand like a dance hall girl bows to the newly arrived drovers....

I've been around these parts since one form....... or three.....

ZH has been infested with all sorts of shitfucks. Several libtards found it, and, we now have numerous one line thread fucker uppers.

Plus, pet trolls we slap around like a sissy in a biker bar.

But the content is still fresh. The Tylers come and go, but the esprit de corpse is still as fresh as a shiner the day after.

This is Fight Club.

Nice to know you aren't some crytard crayon-writing Canks fuckhead.

From one asshole to another <cap tip>

Of course, we read the WSJ and use the valuable knowledge gleaned to make informed investment decisions. Idiot. And what are chromosomes, is that a chemical they put in fabric dyes, why would we need 46 of those?

I'm afraid the count plummeted.  And it's very sad to see where these poor souls have placed their faith.  

Thanks for the recommendation.  I appreciate it.

The problem is his NGO's stay everywhere. All governments must kick them out. Soon!

LJ, You're probably aware of this...

In 2001, McCain founded the Alexandria, Va.-based Reform Institute as a vehicle to receive funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute and Teresa Heinz Kerry’s Tides Foundation and several other prominent non-profit organizations.

Revoke whatever licenses or permission to stay in the country and throw them out. NGOs that instigate terrorism should not be tolerated.

Chupacabra-322's picture

Fuck that! Too much Cronyism & Red Tape. Go right to the source & arrest George Sorros. Perhaps Interpol can step in. Also, a National APB for the apprehension & immediate arrest of George Sorros can be conducted domestically in the US.
