And so, it has come to pass. Reacting with all the speed, and some of the grace of a dead llama, in October, the highest court of the EU ruled that the Hungarian laws relating to the operation of foreign universities in Hungary, was at odds with EU law.
Fine. We didn’t expect anything else now, did we? Of course not. We might not approve of the way Soros controls the EU, but that doesn’t mean that we’re blind to it.
Now, as we all know, Soros’s CEU complained incessantly when the Hungarian government introduced new legislation regarding foreign universities operating in Hungary.
We’re talking about a sovereign state here. Surely, irrespective of opinions concerning the decision, we must all recognise that the prerogative to make the decision is that of the sovereign state. What sort of system would we have if the representatives of a foreign university decided what should happen in a sovereign state?
In its judgment, the Court of Justice of the European Union stated that by insisting that the issuance of a degree in a foreign university based in Hungary be dependent on an agreement between Hungary and the country concerned, Hungary had violated the provisions of ensuring that academic freedom, higher education, and the freedom to conduct business.
Further, the Court states, whilst presumably on mind-altering drugs, that Hungary further violated the same pack of rules when we insisted that a foreign university actually have a university behind it, back at home, which was operational. You couldn’t make this up!
What can we say about Soros? Well, apart from being an incessant meddler in the activities of sovereign states, he’s a man who’s obviously used to getting his own way. We’ve long heard that having more money than God in your bank account will do that to you.
Moving on from the oh-so-predictable verdict that supports whatever an aged, deranged billionaire thinks it should, when we look at Soros’s influence, then it’s disturbing to note more influence of the old nutter hiding in plain sight. A large number of the judges who work for the European Court of Human Rights previously worked for Soros’s Open Society Foundations, the NGO he bankrolls as a sort of project to remould the world in his chosen image. The ECHR is, I need hardly remind anyone, another organisation that goes out of its way to poke sticks through the spokes of the Hungarian legislators, whenever possible.
From a report by Dr. Gregor Puppinck, Head of the European Centre for Law and Justice:
We have identified seven NGOs that are both active at the Court, and have judges among their former staff. At least 22 of the 100 judges who have served since 2009 are former staff or leaders of these seven NGOs.
From among the NGOs concerned, the Open Society Network is worthy of note because twelve of the judges were connected to it, the largest number of judges that had a connection to a particular NGO. The Open Society Network also funds another six organisations named in the report.
Finger in every pie, did you say?
But back to the CEU. It, among all the foreign universities present in Hungary found it impossible to accede to the legislative requirements made by a government which Soros has identified as not only his pet hate, but a pet hate which he has vowed to remove from his path.
You didn’t see that happening with the other foreign universities, did you? No, because for one thing, the other foreign universities actually operated educational institutions in their home countries before setting up institutions abroad.
On what grounds does the Central European University award diplomas from the United States when the CEU, by its own admission, does not deliver accredited courses in higher education in the United States?
(Government spokesman Zoltán Kovács)
No, this was all about something else. This has nothing to do with the academic freedom that the CEU claimed was under attack. This is all to do with the fact that Georgie Porgie set himself on a collision course with any sovereign state in the world that dared to challenge his world view. Hungary’s conservative government did just that, and Soros declared war on Hungary’s government.
He used his money to try to get what he wanted. He doesn’t like not getting his own way, and he has the money to ensure that his will is God.
He holds sway over the European Parliament. In a 177-page pamphlet published by Open Society, 226 EU MEPs are listed according to their political orientation and views. The title of this publication? “Reliable allies in the European Parliament (2014-2019).” Democracy at work, Soros style. Use that money, Georgie boy!
Again…does nobody think that this is anything but an unprecedented attack on something which, to this day, claims to be a beacon of democracy and truth?
The light, shining in the darkness to show others the way, turns out, it would seem, to be the porch light of Georgie Porgie’s mansion. And the moths are flocking to it, encouraged by the pheromones that the EU is busy wafting about the place, rather in the manner of a panicked hostess trying to clear the smell of a dog’s fart from a room as the guests arrive.
Unfortunately, he who pays the fiddler calls the tune. We can see who’s paying, and we can hear the EU making the music that soothes George’s fears, and puts a smile on his deranged face once again.
Boing! There goes the elastic yardstick, once again.
