George Soros’ university has officially been defeated!
Hungary’s President János Áder, an ally of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, signed into law Monday night a controversial amendment that would in effect lead to the closure of the Central European University, an institution founded by U.S. financier George Soros.
The move came despite a series of protests calling for Áder to veto the law. On Sunday, 80,000 people marched in Budapest in solidarity with CEU. While the demonstrations were called initially over the amendment — nicknamed “Lex CEU” in Hungary — protesters quickly began voicing broader concerns about the Orbán government, chanting “democracy,” “dictator,” and “Russians go home” — a reference to Orbán’s close relationship with the Kremlin.
President Áder “did not keep his eyes on the law, nation’s voice or on the country’s best interest, but on the government’s phantom war and consolidation of power,” said the organizers of Sunday’s protest, a group of young activists called Freedom for Education. The group is now calling for the law to be brought before Hungary’s constitutional court.
It’s about time we do the same kind of investigations into Soros in the US!
