Soros Admits Involvement In Migrant Crisis: ‘National Borders Are The Obstacle’
Billionaire investor George Soros has confirmed he wants to bring down Europe’s borders, following the accusation made last week by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
Last week, Mr Orban accused Mr Soros – who was born in Hungary – of deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis.
“This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state,” Mr Orban said.
“This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros.”
Mr Soros has now issued an email statement to Bloomberg Business, claiming his foundations help “uphold European values”, while Mr Oban’s actions in strengthening the Hungarian border and stopping a huge migrant influx “undermine those values.”
“His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Mr Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”
Last month, Mr Orban accused pro-immigration non-governmental organisations (NGOs) of “drawing a living from the immigration crisis,” singling out those funded by Mr Soros.
George Soros is a firm backer of transnational bodies such as the European Union, and his Open Society Foundation (OSF) provides assistance for pro-migration activists. He is well-known for his support for “progressive” causes such as the Centre for American Progress, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The Father of Lies uses many human servants to further his evil agenda

George Soros is definitely evil. The ‘perfect’ agent for a human servant. He’s funding Hillary Clinton’s campaign. He funds any number of progressive organizations from Moveon.org to Black Lives Matter.

Classic false dichotomy – the only way you can aid refugees is to eliminate the national sovereignty.
It also ignores the danger that importing other nations’ problems might only help a few people temporarily, but if it destabilizes additional regions, could ultimately harm far more people.
I know this is going to get me in trouble but I have to ask
where does he get his ideas, surely nor Soros, does he not understand the problems he is encouraging, especially since he lives behind a “wall”
What religion are Soros, Zuckerberg, Bloomberg, etc.? When you don’t have a Christian praxis, and you’re wealthy, you begin seeing human beings as pawns in your global-dominance agenda. You forget about the poor, and disfranchised (even while paying lip-service to them); and your game becomes one of dominance and control, not salvation. Power, and control, are the two traits which form the conscience of any politician, or proxy-power behind them.
Mr. Soros is quoted as saying, “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective”. I would be delighted to learn, in minute detail, what he has, and those he bankrolls have, been doing to protect ‘refugee’ women and children from being sexually molested in the accommodation provided, to protect Christian and other ‘minority’ refugees (e.g., Yezidis) from being mistreated and terrorized by self-described Muslims accommodated with them or placed in positions of responsibility over them (e.g., the translators falsely translating their reports of their dangers), to protect self-characterized or suspected same-sex attracted refugees from analogous maltreatment by self-described ‘orthodox’ Muslims accommodated with them, to protect aspiring refugees from exploitative (sometimes quite murderously) human traffickers. I have heard of admirable people aspiring (often without much success) to help such refugees and/or migrants in such ways, but am not aware of Mr. Soros ever being named among them in any capacity.
he also bankrolled the “astroturfing” of the Ferguson protests- bringing in out of town “professional” protestors to keep the pot boiling
The Egyptian thinks stating obvious truth is going to get him in trouble. Please. I’ll applaud. Soros?So what? He is the bad guy. How about the Vicar of Christ? You could replace the name Soros in this article with Pope Francis. Any problem there?
Please, gatormom, don’t actuate our Holy Father with Soros. The former, like him or not, at least has as his starting-point the Deposit of Truth, the latter does not. So, yes, I have a problem with that. I’m no fan of our current Pontiff, but I know enough to know that he’s the best chance we have in this fallen world to get to heaven, of all the current world “leaders.”
I notice the dateline of the Breitbart article is November 2, 2015.

I have read that he has bet a large portion of his financial fortune on economic collapse across a great many Western nations. It makes financial sense, I should think, for him to strain resources, animate chaos, and attempt to destroy established geopolitical borders. There is a terrific human cost to that, however, no matter what the ideology that drives that result. Seeking chaos at all costs tends to harm most particularly children and families, and generally benefits people looking to exploit human vulnerabilities, i.e, criminals. Chaos is inhumane. I’m not saying the only alternative is closing borders to all, far from it. That irrationality is reigning supreme right now those polarities present as all or nothing in our media. What is the most inhumane is to have no policy or ordered approach at all as it throws families to the mercy of traffickers and others who only want to destroy, harm and exploit. But I think what we have here is an example of someone looking to financially profiteer big on manufactured and inhumane chaos on a huge scale.
Soros is a disciple of Karl Popper. Benedetta, he is said to have made billions engineering the collapse of an entire country’s economy (I think it was Zimbabwe) by using his billions to destroy that country’s monetary system. And making more billions in the process.
un-ionized, Yes it is startling to me how these terrifically huge conflicts of interests are just seemingly shrugged off. I don’t think the turmoil that people without means or resources undergo is a small matter. I guess there is an American analog, which I guess is received wisdom from some good old days (taking us back now) in the Alinsky approach whose proteges are now writ large in our lives because of power and money. I don’t know how the human suffering produced can be justified.
This is quite astute.
He bragged about the fact that he abused weaknesses in the regulations of currency trading in the UK to radically devalue their currency in order to benefit from options trading. His own words for describing his market manipulation were “going for the jugular” of the UK Treasury. What he did was legal, but he was well aware of the harm he was doing, so it was very clearly unethical.
He’s estimated to have made over 1 billion pounds ($1.65 billion US) in a single day, in the process causing the British taxpayers to lose 3.3 billion pounds ($5.8 billion US). In the UK, they refer to this event as Black Wednesday.
To put this as nicely as I can, it would be a level of folly that brings into question ones intelligence to assume his motives in causing unregulated immigration in Europe are anything other than self-serving. He’s already demonstrated he has no qualms about harming tens of millions of people to further enrich himself.
Thanks for such an interesting article letting us read Soros in his own words (with footnotes we can check ourselves)!
It takes us up to the date of the Breitbart article, here, but I do not have them impression Soros has repented and reversed his ways in the past 8 months. See, for instance:
I don’t know enough about Popper – was he really cheerfully seeking to reject Marxist statist totalitarianism, only to replace it with another ideologized (pro-abortion, pro-‘ euthanasia’ , etc.) statist totalitarianism, if possible on a a larger scale, as Soros seems to be? (It looks as if he were applying for the role of Felsenberg in Benson’s Lord of the World! – though maybe it’s ‘ merely’ more like murderous Trotsky(ites) versus murderous Stalin(ists) where Mr. Soros is concerned.)
This is not suprising. We have seen his fingerprints all over ‘social justice’ movements throughout the world. Definitely the new world order Soros and his ilk desire all have the same plan of action; push the global climate change agenda, population control, homosexual ‘rights’, abortion and profiteering from economic chaos.
Unfortunately, many of the issues promoted by Soros are the same ones also promulgated by Catholic prelates. After all, we have heard Europe should be looking to it’s humanist history. As for it’s Christian history? Christianity will indeed be history at this rate. Exactly the way Soros wants it.
What religion are Soros, Zuckerberg, Bloomberg . . .
Ethnic Jews–probably atheists or agnostics.
Some years ago I heard a Catholic philosophy professor speak, a converted Jew, who said–to my surprise–that 90% of all American Jews are atheist or agnostic.
George Soros would like to thank all those who help him in his evil plans to conquer the world and to destroy the West, especially those who provide the mass of refugees by bombing their countries to smithereens.
The Irish, same as anyone with a vote, are custodians of its use and need to discern the good or evil results of voting.
Check out Soros funding in Isish politics, society and elections.
The ruthless readiness to do harm to who knows how many (including of ‘your own people’) as an instrument in pursuit of one’s goals, reminds me of Leopold Schwarzschild’s account in World in Trance (1943) of some of what the German government(s) got up to, after the Treaty of Versailles and before the rise of Hitler.
(Checking Schwarzschild’s Wikipedia articles, I was interested to read that Churchill praised World in Trance (while the German article gives an appraisal by an academic sociologist far more positive than Wells and Foot: q.v.), and to read Popper´s appraisal of his 1947 biography of Marx: “In the first edition of his The Open Society and Its Enemies (1945), Karl Popper distinguished between Karl Marx himself and his followers, claiming that they had transformed Marx’s works into an unscientific dogma. However Popper added a note to the fifth edition: ‘Some years after I wrote this…Leopold Schwarzschild’s…The Red Prussian…became known to me…it contains documentary evidence, especially from the Marx-Engels correspondence, which shows that Marx was less of a humanitarian, and less of a lover of freedom, than he is made to appear in my book. Schwarzschild describes him as a man who saw in ‘the proletariat’ mainly an instrument of his own personal ambition. Though this may put the matter more harshly than the evidence warrants, it must be admitted that the evidence itself is shattering’.” I get the impression the Mr. Soros sees in ‘the refugees’ and the citizens of his own and every other country mainly an instrument of his own personal ambition, be it for wealth, power, or both.)
robtbrown, the term is “secular Jews.” Why is the number of secular Jews surprising (unless you are not from the US, in which case it would be surprising)? There are few practicing Jews in the US, especially those who would be considered Reform if they were faithful.

I don’t consider agnostic/atheist Jew and secular Jew to be co-terminous. No b
