Hungary’s Ruling Party Hands Out Book Targeting George Soros
Hungary’s ruling party is stepping up its campaign against billionaire investor George Soros by distributing a book that accuses the financier of pursuing a plan to flood Europe with migrants.
The book, titled “George Soros,” is written by Andreas von Rétyi – a German author known for pushing conspiracy theories about UFOs and what caused the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on the U.S.
Fidesz, a conservative party led by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, plans to distribute 5,000 copies to local politicians across the country.
“The book is a detailed and accurate piece,” Fidesz spokesman János Halász told broadcaster RTL Klub, according to newspaper Die Welt.
The Orban administration launched an anti-Soros campaign in the spring to halt the Hungarian-born investor’s operations in the country.
The streets of Budapest were filled with posters and billboards of the Hungarian-born billionaire with the caption “Don’t let Soros get the last laugh!”
Hungarian government poster portraying financier George Soros and saying “Don’t let George Soros have the last laugh” is seen at an underground stop in Budapest.
The campaign claims that Soros wants a 1 million refugee influx to Europe per year.
“The Hungarian standpoint is that illegal migration is clearly a matter of national security,” Orban’s spokesman, Zoltan Kovacs, told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a recent interview.
“We shall mobilize the political and legal power of the Hungarian state against anyone who undermines the security of Hungary – regardless of their origins, religious affiliation or wealth.”
Soros struck back at Orban by describing his “mafia state” as “one which maintains a facade of democracy.”
