I admire the Hungarian, "strongman Prime Minister Viktor Orban" as much as President-Elect Trump, now that Yahoo mentions him (zerohedge and VDare mention this guy some too, but in a good way). BTW, is "strongman Prime Mimister" the complete title of Orban's office? You don't hear Obama called a "strongman" though he violated the constitution daily. I'm starting to think that in the Western world, according to gov-media, a strongman" is someone with certain political views only, who, if he doesn't rent an apartment, must live in a "compound". Of course, it's hard for us to imagine this AA-hire, effeminate President-Eject Øb☭ma as anything but the "weak-man in the white hut".
We want to add also that this story is in Yahoo News, not someplace to read a whole lot of truth, but it was linked to on Drudge.
In fact, just like in yesterday's post regarding a USA Today headline, the article, with it's embedded globalist opinions, just reinforces the opposite view in the awake reader. Here's half the story on Yahoo - see what you think the writer wants. Hint, he's a leftwing globalist imbecile.
Budapest (AFP) - Hungarian NGOs have long felt the heat under strongman Prime Minister Viktor Orban -- but they now fear that, emboldened by Donald Trump's victory, the right-wing premier will turn the screws even tighter.
First in line may be groups backed by Hungarian-born billionaire financier George Soros, whose foundation once funded the Oxford studies of a young Orban more than 25 years ago.
Last week the deputy head of Orban's ruling party Fidesz, in power since 2010, said that non-governmental organisations should be "cleaned out of here".
Szilard Nemeth said that criticism of government policies by "fake" civil organisations set up to "influence politics" by Soros and others was "impermissible".
The remarks triggered alarm among beleaguered NGOs, many of which -- in the absence of a credible political opposition -- have long attacked Orban's sweeping revamp of state institutions and hardline anti-immigration stance.
"This is a new level of NGO-bashing," said Marta Pardavi, co-head of the Hungarian branch of the Helsinki Committee, a human rights group that provides free advice to asylum-seekers.
Nemeth name-checked the body as potential targets along with civil rights group TASZ and corruption watchdog Transparency International.
"The notion that we should be swept away like rubbish or have no right to comment on politics shows their arrogant intolerance of different views," Pardavi told AFP.
Her office, staffed by some two dozen lawyers, heaves with case files as well as reports that have slammed Orban's anti-migration policies.
She freely admits that her organisation relies on foreign funding to continue operating. But "otherwise it's not possible to do human rights advocacy work in Hungary," she says.
Mirroring pressure in Russia under President Vladimir Putin, scrutiny of foreign-funded NGOs has been cranked up since Orban was re-elected in 2014.
NGO bashing is the new bocci-ball for patriotic Europeans - excellent, that game is kinda boring anyway.
"Soros in crosshairs -
The 86-year-old Soros, whose Open Society Foundations (OSF) body has funded civil groups in Eastern Europe since the 1980s, is in the crosshairs of the new push.
"Soros has decided that he will be Viktor Orban's opponent and opposition in Hungarian politics... People have the right to know which organisations he's doing this through," Orban's chief-of-staff Janos Lazar said last week.
Hungarian officials have even accused Soros-backed NGOs of posing a national security risk during Europe's migration crisis by allegedly colluding with human-smugglers and "terrorists"."
"Hungarian officials have even accused ..." - I take that as "Hungarian officials have even started telling the truth about ..." See, just like with the old Soviet Pravda or the NYT for the last 50 years, you've simply got to translate from elite-speak to truth by changing out a few words and phrases - there's an app for that!
Lastly, I like "Soros in the crosshairs" very much, but even with the best scope, a good rifle caliber, and correct windage adjustment, remember this guy's the AntiChrist, so, you know, I'm not sure if that would do the trick. Let me check Revelation, and see what it says about firepower.
