Hungary Threatens to Close University Funded by George Soros

Via Billy

The government of Hungary is planning to pass new laws that would shut down a major university founded and funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.

Conservative leaders in the country want to implement extra regulation that would make it impossible for Soros’s Central European University (CEU) in Budapest to keep operating.

According to POLITICO, legislation proposed in the Hungarian parliament would revoke the institution’s ability to award degrees.

The move is part of a wider crackdown on the influence of foreign money in Hungarian politics.

Soros was born in Hungary, and spends significant sums on non-profits in the country, but is a naturalized US citizen.

  1. Hungarians, who I thought had their eyes wide open, are
    protesting the university's closing. It's nothing but
    a communist institution.

    1. I'll guess that the government/people will win this one.

  2. This is excellent news. Hungary has a lot of fight in it.

    If refugees from Western Europe flee there, I assume they'd mostly join up with the nativists.
