Hungarians Deface Laughing George Soros Posters with Anti-Semitic Graffitti

Hungarian President Victor Orban authorized billboards and posters at bus stops featuring a photo of George Soros with the caption “Let’s not let him have the last laugh.”  Orban says that organizations funded by Soros are trying to undermine the government.  He accuses Soros of being a “billionaire speculator” who wants to “settle a million migrants” in the European Union to destabilize every nation. Because Soros is Jewish, some of the posters were defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti, and Jewish groups have asked Orban to remove the posters. –GEG

George Soros, the billionaire financier, has criticised an anti-immigration campaign run by the Hungarian government as “antisemitic”.

“I am distressed by the current Hungarian regime’s use of antisemitic imagery as part of its deliberate disinformation campaign,” the 86-year-old said in a rare statement.

The posters used in the media campaign show a large picture of the Hungarian-born Jewish emigre laughing, alongside the text: “Let’s not let Soros have the last laugh”, a reference to government claims that Soros wants to force Hungary to allow in migrants.

Since the posters appeared on billboards and at public spaces around the country last week, as well as on television, several incidents of antisemitic graffiti such as “Stinking Jew” or Stars of David daubed on them have been reported.

Hungary’s largest Jewish organisation, Mazsihisz, has called on prime minister Viktor Orbán to stop the campaign, with its head Andras Heisler writing that the “poisonous messages harm the whole of Hungary”.

Some opposition activists and citizens have also begun taking down some of the posters from billboards.

Soros, who has dual Hungarian-American citizenship, said he was “heartened that together with countless fellow citizens the leadership of the Hungarian Jewish community” have spoken out.

Earlier on Tuesday his spokesperson Michael Vachon called the campaign “reminiscent of Europe’s darkest hours” with “clearly antisemitic overtones”.

Those defacing the posters with graffiti “(understood) the government’s intent,” he said.

“The government has consistently and wilfully misrepresented Soros’s views on migration and refugees,” he added.

On Friday Orbán accused Soros of being a “billionaire speculator” who wanted to use his wealth and civil groups that he supports to “settle a million migrants” in the European Union.

Orban and government officials say that Hungary has a policy of “zero tolerance” of antisemitism, and that the poster campaign is about increasing awareness of the “national security risk” posed by Soros.

On Saturday, Israel’s ambassador in Budapest Yossi Amrani also criticised the poster campaign, saying it “evokes sad memories but also sows hatred and fear”.

But late on Sunday – reportedly at the request of prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office – Israel’s foreign ministry issued a separate “clarification” that criticism of Soros was legitimate.

Cultural enrichment! Islam is the religion of peace! Strength in diversity! Only 45% of the population in London are native British whites. Islamic culture brought the acid attack to the shores of Britain, with their “honor” killings and Sharia law- watch this:

People need to understand that the Hungarian billboard is not a statement about anti-Jewish sentiment. It is a statement about RICH JEWS using their wealth to destroy nations through RE-ENGINEERING SOCIETY. Henry Ford called them “the international Jew”. Edward I (around 1090AD) drove them out of England for destroying the English common law of feudal society. Once these FINANCIER JEWS get embedded into the hallowed halls of government, they destroy the whole of society over the course of a few generations, and they do it imperceptibly. Their evil schemes are the most devilish thing you would never imagine! The most… Read more »
