Not all-benevolent

In this piece, George Soros is made out to be all-benevolent. But people don't oppose him for no reason. Please provide balance by considering his video interview in which, despite being Jewish himself, he discussed helping evict Jews, confiscating their belongings, having no problem with it, in fact enjoying it, and still today having no regrets.

There are just two lines about Soros in this article. One explains origin of the name of the bill. He is born in Hungary and is democracy advocate. There is nothing wrong in that. Escaped Holocaust, migrated, those are also facts. Formed OSF, another fact. And what OSF does has hardly anything to do with Soros -- once there is an organisation, there is very little one person can do against the board. The aim is to explain what was the reason of the bill being called "Stop Soros", which is explained in a neutral fashion. This is not the article about Georgy Soros but about "Stop Soros" bill, and explaining the origin and connection is sufficient. If this were the article about the April election, and him leaving Hungary, that might have been considered. Depends -- I don't remember much about that election now. But the information what you are asking is irrelevant for this article, and besides, "benevolent" might not be the word I would use. I have barely even gotten into speaking about him because it is irrelevant for the article. His immigration policy and connection to this bill, is of relevance.

Tomorrow, you would say, "Christian value" welcomes refugees, Leviticus 19 says so. The thing is it does not change anything.

The article is about George Soros and his organization that is promoting illegal immigration. Mr. Soros is a frequent focus of attention in Hungary for his funding of political groups that, due to his enormous wealth, have an inordinate influence in a relatively poor country. The "Stop Soros" bill is about Soros, the article is about Soros and his influence regarding immigration into Hungary. If Hungarians want to preserve their Christian culture and prevent immigrants from Muslim countries, it is their right to do so.

The "Stop Soros" bill is not about Soros, the person. Don't fall for the name of the bill, read the damn points of the bill.

As far as "it is their right to do so" is a blatantly incorrect statement. For the record, Hungary is a secular country. At least that is what their constitution claims to be. They should not be biased against a particular group of people. I re-read the article, and there is no mention of "Muslim" or "Islam", to begin with. It is about any undocumented migrants.

As far as "Christian values" as concerned:

  1. "When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God."
  1. "You shall not oppress a sojourner. You know the heart of a sojourner, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt."
  2. "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me."
  3. "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
  4. "You shall allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the sojourners who reside among you and have had children among you. They shall be to you as native-born children of Israel. With you they shall be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel."

So if you think any country is protecting their "Christian values", you are deluded.

Everytime someone tries to protect such bullshit by asserting "Christian values", Maradona does this.
