The Hungarian government has hit back at the mainstream media for claiming that the ‘Soros plan’ to open up Europe to mass immigration is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.
The Financial Times — the salmon pink establishment newspaper which is considered part of the unofficial uniform for City bankers and financiers in London, and which is noted for its staunch support for the European Union and insistence that mass immigration is an unstoppable force which must be accepted — took aim at Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán for challenging billionaire open borders campaigner George Soros.
“There is no such plan”, scoffed FT foreign affairs chief Gideon Rachman, in an article titled ‘Soros hatred is a global sickness’.
But Dr. Zoltán Kovács, Hungary’s Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Prime Minister Orbán’s main spokesman, has responded robustly, writing: “These people just aren’t being straight with us.”
Dr. Kovács reminds readers that Prime Minister Orbán has addressed the genuineness of the ‘Soros Plan’ before: “It’s not something we’ve made up,” he told Hungarian radio earlier in 2017. “We didn’t reach this conclusion through divination, but the architect of the plan published it himself.”
Dr. Kovács goes on to point out that, indeed, “at the end of September 2015, [Soros] published an article in his own name entitled – wait for it – ‘George Soros: Here’s my plan to solve the asylum chaos’.”
Whilst Soros spokesman Michael Vachon insists “Soros’s position is entirely consistent with mainstream European values [and] the claim that Soros is promoting a scheme to import a million illegal immigrants into Europe is Viktor Orbán’s fantasy,” Dr. Kovács notes that the very first point of the financier’s September 2015 article declares that “the EU has to accept at least a million asylum seekers annually for the foreseeable future”.
Hungary: Smearing Legitimate Criticism of George Soros as Anti-Semitism is ‘Cynical and Dishonest’
Dr Zoltán Kovács hit back at “cynical and dishonest” claims by EU officials that criticism of the billionaire open borders is anti-Semitic.
“Those who deny that the Soros Plan exists would prefer that we not talk about it, and they dread the idea that – God forbid! – the citizens of Europe should have a say.”
