European Leader Defies George Soros

I think we can all get behind this: 

BUDAPEST, June 20 (Reuters) - Hungary's parliament on Wednesday approved a package of bills that criminalises some help given to illegal immigrants, defying the European Union and human rights groups.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban has led eastern European opposition to EU quotas that aim to distribute asylum seekers around the bloc, criticising the open-door policy that German Chancellor Angela Merkel proclaimed at the height of the European migrant crisis in 2015.

Orban's right-wing Fidesz party tightened its grip on parliament in April elections after campaigning on an anti-immigration platform. Fidesz also demonised Hungarian-born U.S. billionaire George Soros and the liberal NGOs he backs, naming the new legislation the "STOP Soros" law.

Orban accuses Soros of encouraging mass immigration to undermine Europe, a charge he denies.

"The Hungarian people rightfully expect the government to use all means necessary to combat illegal immigration and the activities that aid it," Interior Minister Sandor Pinter wrote in a justification attached to the draft legislation.

"The STOP Soros package of bills serves that goal, making the organisation of illegal immigration a criminal offence. We want to use the bills to stop Hungary from becoming a country of immigrants," he said.

REMNANT COMMENT: Remember the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, where God promises Abraham he'd spare the city if even ten just men could be found?  Well what if something similar is going on in Europe today? All of a sudden the good guys seem to be getting an assist from somewhere, despite billions of euros and the full court press of their global opposition. Maybe these are the “ten just men.”

Maybe this isn’t a slam dunk, after all. I mean, let’s face it--George Soros isn’t exactly Julius Felsenburgh. He comes off like a campy Bond villain---grotesque, yet laughably over-the-top.  Not everyone in Europe is as enamored with this character as are liberal Democrats on our side of the pond.  

In any case, it’s beginning to look as though the 'world without borders’ cartel may have jumped the shark. If we're picking up this much nationalist chatter on our side of the Atlantic, one can only imagine how much more there is on the ground over there where, suddenly, it's quite the winning hand for European politicians to go up against the mighty EU.

Whatever it is, this is fun to watch. The wheels of the EU Crazy Train appear to be coming loose.

All glory and honor to God
