George Soros has funneled millions into censorship of conservative voices

BUDAPEST (ChurchMilitant.com) - The six-week anti-Soros campaign in Hungary ended Saturday.

Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban is continuing to fight. The enraged prime minister littered the streets and subways of Budapest with billboards and posters of George Soros, condemning the Hungarian-born billionaire's plans. Captions on the signs read, "Don’t let Soros get the last laugh!"

Soros objected that Orban's billboard campaign was targeting his Jewish heritage and accused him of playing off Nazi attacks.

"The campaign you are referring to seeks to draw attention to the threat which George Soros represents on the issue of immigration — namely his standpoint that the borders of Europe must open up to immigrants," Orban's spokesman, Zoltan Kovacs, argued. "We would like to emphasize, however, that the poster campaign has nothing to do with Mr. Soros's religious affiliation — if indeed he has any."

In a recent interview, Orban names Soros as a globalist threat and is vowing to stop him from executing his master plan. He accused Soros of having vast "agent-like networks" of non-governmental organizations (NGO's).

The Hungarian government is bringing exposing Soros and his shadow networks' plans to bring in one million migrants to Europe each year. Orban is attempting to pass legislation that would force the NGOs in the country to reveal exactly where their funding comes from and what the money given is to be used for.

"The Hungarian government is defending the borders, build fences, and under these circumstances the Soros plan can't be carried out," Orban vowed.

Soros' money train goes a long way. The Open Societies Foundation (OSF) over the last 35 years reports expenditures of close to $14 billion. The Soros-funded OSF budget for 2017 alone is $940.7 million, organized under seven regions and 10 themes. Under blanket themes like early childhood and education, equality, anti-discrimination and human rights, the money goes around the world to promote abortion, contraception, sterilization, LGBT ideology and social media platform censorship.

Media Matters for America (MMFA) is another Soros-funded group established back in 2004, the beneficiaries of $1 million of Soros' money. The organization styles itself as the online watchdog, a progressive research and information center, protecting the public from deceptions and errors of false reporting and correcting alleged conservative misinformation.

In an early 2017 speech, Media Matters founder David Brock attributed Hillary Clinton's loss to "fake news." He added that with donor support, his group will ensure that "Internet and social media platforms, like Google and Facebook ... no longer uncritically and without consequence host and enrich fake news sites and propagandists."

Having launched a donor campaign in 2016 to pressure Facebook into addressing the "fake news" issue, Media Matters was successful in convincing Mark Zuckerberg to set up a review board to vet fake news — stacked with left-leaning media outfits as the final arbiters of truth vs. fake news

"After Facebook responded to our campaign by acknowledging the problem of fake news and agreeing to do something about it, we began a dialogue," their donor book reads. "It became clear from these conversations that Facebook needed our help in fully understanding the problem and identifying concrete solutions."
