    The SPD, led by Tomio Okamura, said in the statement that Soros-funded non-governmental organisations want to destroy nationalism.

    Having donated more than $400 million to his native country Hungary and hundreds of millions more across eastern Europe since the 1989 fall of communism, the main focus of Soros has been the destruction of national institutions.

    Okamura’s party, Freedom and Direct Democracy, which holds more than a 10th of the 200 seats in parliament, joined other European politicians calling for a crackdown on foreign NGO’s. Okamura said his party would support steps limiting the influence of such entities in Czech politics and media, according to a statement cited by Bloomberg on Tuesday.

    The SPD has called for the country allow a referendum over membership of the European Union applauded measures taken by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban against Hungarian-born Soros’ project to undermine national sovereignty. Russian leader Vladimir Putin too, has cracked down on meddling foreign-funded NGOs.

    “The vehicle of this governance are nonprofit organizations with political and ideological programs and financial as well as personal links to George Soros’s organizational network,” Okamura said in the statement. “Their goal is to destroy national identity and natural cultural and social values, push positive discrimination and immigration in the interest of the global world order.”

    The statement by the SPD highlights a shift in the political climate in the Czech Republic, voicing opposition to the EU’s liberal, multi-culturalism together with EU members Hungary and Poland.

    In Hungary, Orban launched a national mail-in survey as well as a billboard campaign together with a “Stop Soros” legislative package that is purportedly aimed at curbing the influence of Soros. The public consultation saw a record 2.1 million postal responses with the vast majority of Hungarians supporting the government’s campaign against Soros.

    President Milos Zeman, who won a second five-year term this weekend, praised Okamura for his support on Saturday as the SPD leader stood by while he gave his victory speech. Zeman, unlike Soros-funded NGOs, has voiced support for stronger ties with Russia.

    Soros denounced the campaigns against him across eastern Europe. But documents from DC Leaks show Soros, and his Open Society NGO, touted the benefits of the disastrous Ukraine coup in meeting minutes.

    Soros’ meddling is documented, presenting a clear and conclusive case that George Soros and his International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) manipulated Ukraine into moving towards an untenable and self destructive direction.

    Three big national elections are coming in Europe this year in which pro-sovereignty parties look to dominate in Italy and Hungary and perform well in Sweden.

    Polls show the centre-right coalition of the Lega, led by Matteo Salvini, and the Forza Italia party, led by former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, the most likely to place first in the overall vote.

    The Hungarian national election, scheduled for April 8th, has the anti-mass migration Fidesz party of Prime Minister Viktor Orban dominating in every poll. On Sunday, a survey showed Fidesz and their coalition partner, the Christian Democratic People’s Party (KDNP), leading with 54 per cent.

    In Sweden, the anti-immigration Social Democrats were tied for first place with the ruling Social Democrats in December, but January polls show them sinking into third place behind the Social Democrats and the Moderate Party.

      Doesn’t look like this one is funded by Soros. When will it be time to recognise that not all of this is Soros, but the whole lot of his collectivist sustainable friends.
