Hungary set to turn screws on Soros-backed NGOs

Budapest (AFP) – Hungarian NGOs have long felt the heat under strongman Prime Minister Viktor Orban — but they now fear that, emboldened by Donald Trump’s victory, the right-wing premier will turn the screws even tighter.

First in line may be groups backed by Hungarian-born billionaire financier George Soros, whose foundation once funded the Oxford studies of a young Orban more than 25 years ago.

Last week the deputy head of Orban’s ruling party Fidesz, in power since 2010, said that non-governmental organisations should be “cleaned out of here”.

Szilard Nemeth said that criticism of government policies by “fake” civil organisations set up to “influence politics” by Soros and others was “impermissible”.

The remarks triggered alarm among beleaguered NGOs, many of which — in the absence of a credible political opposition — have long attacked Orban’s sweeping revamp of state institutions and hardline anti-immigration stance.

    Who will he give his money to now? I read the Clinton Global Initiative (to make them rich) is shutting down. If hungry tells him to get out, where is he going to find such minimum wage politicians to buy? No Obama, no Clinton, no Kerry. Is the sale over? He’ll have to find much more expensive folks to buy.

    George Soros is one of the most evil men on the planet. The United States should investigate the organizations Mr. Soros bankrolls and shut down the ones it can. Nazi lackey George Soros is one of the greatest threats to freedom that one can find.

    His original nationality was Hungarian. If he continues to fund and organize against the lawful government of the United States in such a way that it is trying to remove or destroy current leadership, called Sedition, then he should be stripped of his US Citizenship and deported to where he came from. I am sure that Hungary would love to make a deal with the Russians, Soros for $$$. Win, Win for everyone.

    It is time to get rid of the Evil George Soros. More we wait, more this country will be in danger.
    God help America and our next President Trump on the Inauguration Day. Who knows what this rat and his pals Obama and Clintons have in mind to try to destroy it.
    He did, and does spend a lot of his wealth to change this Great country to a Communist country.
    Soros = bastard.
