George Soros has lamented that the European Union is on the verge of collapse while Russia is becoming “a resurgent nationalist power.”
Hungarian-American tycoon George Soros, who runs the $26 billion Soros Fund Management and chairs the global board of the Open Society Foundations (OSF), made the remarks while speaking to the Financial Times.
Soros claimed nationalism has now become the “dominant ideology in the world,” taking aim at the 28-member European Union. “It’s the EU that’s the institution that’s on the verge of a breakdown,” he asserted. “And Russia is now the resurgent power, based on nationalism.”
In Russia, Soros’ organizations were banned in 2015 by authorities citing security threats they posed to the country.
In his native Hungary, Soros is thought to be plotting against the government of hardline rightwing politician Viktor Orban. Prime Minister Orban believes Soros has been creating a low-key network to undermine his cabinet and influence EU policies in Brussels.
Hungary’s leader has consistently accused Soros of fueling the refugee crisis in Europe and eroding European cultural identity. In October last year, the Prime Minister said more than 200 members of the European Parliament are listed by the billionaire’s “empire” as “friends to the network.”
Orban, who will seek a fourth term as Hungary’s Prime Minister next year, said he has directed the country’s secret services to investigate the “Soros Empire” and “expose it to the public.”
Earlier that year, Soros labelled Hungary a “Mafia state,” prompting Orban to fire back: “The only network which operates in mafia ways, which is not transparent in Hungary is the Soros network.”
Must be easy to predict a breakdown that you planned, financed, and are completely responsible for.
Of course it is people like Soros himself who have created these political environments. The people who instituted the Common Market were not content with a group of cooperating nationstates… they weren’t even happy with the Schengen Agreement that removed the border controls between these cooperating nations. Their entire intent was to create a United States of America by forcing ‘federal’ policy to the detriment of national sovereignty. Within them were also the open borders crowd like Soros. Angela Merkel decided as a single nation-state to break the borders of the EU and every sovereign nation within the EU. While the UK has been on the fringes of accepting the EC in Brussels as the overlord of British law for some time, Merkel’s actions pushed the sovereignty issue over the edge. Now nation states, particularly those in eastern Europe who know very well the authoritarian nature of a government far away, are saying NO… and the globalist just do not like it. But we must understand one thing, particularly with respect to the EU. While the path to the globalist, open borders, one world government crowd is hampered by these moves for national sovereignty, they have not lost their grip on power within these various countries. Until they and their communist minions are destroyed politically the ComIntern game is still afoot…
As far as Russia goes, we took our eyes off the ball when the Berlin Wall came down. The communist party has disbanded itself on at least three occasions when it was politically expedient only to reconstitute itself in national movements all over the world… and they are still very much a product of the central committee in Moscow… Its like these idiots saying that China is more capitalist than America. While I will agree that most of the free market capitalism in America has been captured by government corruption… the appropriation of business and its technology is the only thing that allows Chinas ‘capitalism’ to work… they are still communist from top, to neighborhood informant at the bottom…
You really believe that, and earned a like! What a powerful man. He must be sought after, admired, worshipped maybe.
Who… Soros?.. you mean the funding darling of the progressive left… I think he is quite popular in some circles even as he got his wealth by bringing down currencies to the determent of that nations most vulnerable.
He doesn’t run his ‘Open Society’ foundation to solidify national sovereignty, that is for sure.
@Vlad, sovereignty is nothing if you can’t defend it, for your person, your home, your country. The United States has a long history of violating the sovereignty of other nations, this bothers you and others here not one bit. But you guys can’t stand it if you feel your sovereignty is being violated. Patronizing and hypocritical Americans!
You make this statement over and over again yet their are many who know and understand our foreign policy is broken and seek a pullback in our presence in many countries BUT we also know that the game with communism is not nearly over… particularly when they have so many sympathizers within the borders of the US constantly seeking to undermine our sovereignty. You have yet to articulate your ideas about our foreign policy with respect to our own national sovereignty… but then again, perhaps you don’t have one… you seem to praise Russia and China a lot…
Sovereignty isn’t a given, it’s not a guarantee, it isn’t sacred, it isn’t always respected by others, it’s yours if you can defend it, and that’s it. Just look at the evolving maps of the world over the centuries. If somebody wants what you’ve got badly enough and has the force to take it from you, that’s what they do.
Then again just as the presidents job is to defend against foreign enemies… he has the same responsibility to defend against those domestic operatives who seem to enjoy dismantling our sovereignty… Some would call them Traitors…
Russia is a resurgent power!! Nature abhors a vacuum.
Putin has been complaining about a US dominated unipolar world for years.
Soros has his EVIL hand in plenty of elections in the US. He “Donated” at least 1 million dollars to elect a Liberal DA who has pledged to never seek the death penalty.Liberal Larry Krasner has"Fired"at least 30 Assistant DAswho don’t fit his style.He agrees with the mayor with Philadelphia being a “Sanctuary City” and will not cooperate with ICE.
What a great 4yrs for those voters to look forward to.i
Thank Citizens United!
