The European Parliament has passed a resolution that will enable eligible civil groups to get 1.8 billion euros in support instead of the originally planned 642 million euros.
The EP’s proposal was heavily
criticized by the Fidesz (Hungarian Civic Alliance) but welcomed by
left-liberal opposition MEPs.
The idea of tripling funding in the
2021-2027 financial period for NGOs dedicated to preserving democratic values,
did not sit well with ruling party Fidesz’s communications chief Balazs
“The European Parliament’s fresh
decision to increase funding for ‘Soros groups’ once again makes it clear that
George Soros is practically dictating Brussels’ migration policy.”
Hidveghi stressed that Brussels
wanted to increase funding for organizations affiliated with billionaire George
Soros who is a staunch advocate of globalism.
According to Hidveghi, Soros groups
are pushing to bring in more immigrants to Europe. Hidveghi interpreted the
resolution of the European Parliament as proof that the EP is merely executing
the plan of the Greek billionaire to the letter.
Another revelation from Hidveghi was
that Brussels has plans in motion to decrease funding support to member states
that refused to honor the country’s migration policy.
The withheld funds would then be
distributed to organizations that are pro-immigration and associated with
Zsolt Greczy spokesman for the
leftist-liberal Democratic Coalition DK parliamentary group defended the
decision of the European Parliament. He said the resolution would prevent
“criminals” who harbored ideas on looting the EU’s funds.
Greczy also referred to the
administration of Prime Minister Viktor Orban as a “criminal organization”.
According to Greczy, Orban has deprived many needy Hungarian families of
funding and have diverted the money to line up his pockets.
He added that vast majority of the
European People’s Party, of which Fidesz is a member supports plans to set up
this type of mechanism.
Fidesz MEP Tamas Deutsch, supported
Hidveghi’s views. He reinforced the group’s position by stating that they would
not support EP’s resolution because it is aimed at punishing member states who
oppose Brussels’ pro-immigration policies and the “Soros plan”.
