Why do we say ‘Stop Soros’? Just ask the people of the United Kingdom
George Soros is attempting to undermine the democratically elected government of the United Kingdom and overturn the results of a popular referendum.
That’s one of the conclusions of the lead story in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph: “George Soros, the man who 'broke the Bank of England', backing secret plot to thwart Brexit.”
The story says that Soros, the man who made over 1 billion pounds by betting against the Bank of England, has put up 400,000 GBP (more than 450,000 EUR) through the Open Society Foundation to a group called Best for Britain, which aims – according to a leaked strategy document – “to raise public support for Remain” to build a “growing national majority” and “channeling that pressure into MPs’ mailbags”. Their ultimate goal is to defeat Prime Minister May in the parliamentary vote she has promised on the Brexit deal in October and “trigger a new referendum, or election.”
Their campaign, according to the document revealed in the Telegraph article, must “wake the country up and assert that Brexit is not a done deal. That it’s not too late to stop Brexit”.
The news forced the Open Society Foundation to later admit to an additional 300,000 GBP in funding that they’ve given to other groups pushing the Remain agenda.
Soros is funding groups that are working to overturn Brexit, to reverse a decision taken at the request of UK voters, and to possibly topple the democratically elected government of Theresa May in the process.
Let that sink in for a moment.
Critics of the Orbán Government try to dismiss as extreme our “Stop Soros” legislative package, which introduces new regulations and transparency for foreign-funded NGOs that aid illegal migration. They’ve condemned us for calling out the “Soros plan” that proposes to bring one million migrants to Europe every year, some even going so far as to deny that such a plan exists (though he put it down in writing himself).
Nothing in Hungary’s rules on NGOs, including the new package still under consideration, prohibit this activity. And a spokesman for Prime Minister May also affirmed that it’s not prohibited in the UK. But the activity must be transparent and subject to regulation, particularly when it’s defying the will of our people and at odds with the nation’s security.
This latest news from the battle front of Brexit is the latest, outrageous example of what we’ve been saying all along: Soros is not a philanthropist and his Open Society network is not a charity. He is a brazen political actor who uses his foundation to drive a radical political agenda around the world, often opposing the will of local citizens if they don’t agree with his open society ideology. Yet, he has no democratic mandate. He represents nobody.
Why do we say “Stop Soros”? Just ask the people of the United Kingdom.
