Outrageous! Tillerson State Dept. Dumps $700,000 into Hungarian Media to Defeat Conservative Leader Orban
This is outrageous.
Hungary’s Victor Orban is one of the few conservative Western leaders speaking out against open borders, globalism and George Soros.
Orban recently told an EU audience that George Soros and his allies are using mass immigration to destroy Europe’s “cultural and ethnic identity.”
Deep state operatives in the State Department despise Orban for his pro-democracy, anti-immigrant positions.
It was announced this week that the Tillerson State Department is spending over $700,000 to defeat Orban in Hungary.
This is outrageous!
The U.S. State Department has courted controversy by announcing it will plough $700,000 into Hungarian media, angering the country’s anti-globalist, conservative government.
The funding was announced by U.S. Chargé d‘Affaires David Kostelancik, who has previously appeared to openly criticise the Trump administration by alluding to “apparent inconsistencies in [U.S.] foreign policy” and remarking that “not every criticism of the government is ‘fake news’.”
Breitbart London spoke to a State Department official who confirmed it supports what it calls “democracy and human rights programming” in many countries, and that its intentions in Hungary — a NATO ally — are to “support media outlets operating outside the capital … to produce fact-based reporting and increase their audience and economic sustainability”.
The State Department also echoed Kostelancik’s claim that too many Hungarian news outlets are sympathetic to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s popular conservative government — which has earned powerful enemies by opposing the European Union on mass migration, building a highly effective border wall, and exposing the network of European politicians deemed “reliable allies” by billionaire open borders campaigner George Soros.
