The Macedonians are fighting back. And they’re hoping for help.
“The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia. It has monopolized the civil society sector, pushing outside any organization which disagrees with the Soros ideology”
— Nikola Srbov, a columnist for Kurir and co-founder of SOS
Soros has become quite expert at destabilizing nations, especially governments that have been democratically elected.
He was instrumental in the destruction of the former Yugoslavia of which Macedonia was once a part.
While some old codgers like to while away their golden years golfing and gardening, George Soros prefers to spend his days manipulating elections, destabilizing countries, and toppling governments…whatever it takes to destroy the lives of millions.
He’s been at this for some time, and has become quite proficient: A one-man civilization wrecking ball. Well, not really one-man. He has (owns?) folks like Hillary Clinton, and an infinite supply of journalists, academics, activists and lots of others on-the-take, doing his bidding, aggressively deluding and confusing the unsuspecting public, while wreaking mayhem, strife and destruction. What else is an old billionaire to do with his time and his money?
While Soros has gone after Egypt, Israel, Russia, and now Donald Trump using various activists groups, he has provided support for the ascension of the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikwan) and used his wealth and extraordinary influence to crush the efforts of the Iranian opposition in Iran that fought the murderous Mullahs.
In the United States, Soros joined forces with Ron Paul and Conservative Republican Grover Norquist among others to successfully crush the Iranian opposition in defense of Iran’s murderous Islamic theocrats.
Through his International Crisis Group, Soros was instrumental in the ascension of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt–a fascist organization feared and loathed across much of the Middle East. In both cases, his efforts and activities were in league with Washington. Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, was a key player.
‘Stop Operation Soros’ movement begins in Macedonia
A new initiative, Stop Operation Soros (SOS), dedicated to countering the influence of American billionaire activist George Soros, has been launched in Macedonia.
In a press conference on Tuesday, the founders of the group called on all “free-minded citizens,” regardless of ethnicity or religion, to join them in the “fight against one-mindedness in the civil sector, which is devised and led by George Soros,” the Vecer newspaper reported. The movement says it will first focus on uncovering ‘subversive’ activities by Soros-funded NGOs.
According to Nikola Srbov, a columnist for pro-government news portal Kurir and co-founder of SOS, Soros-funded NGOs have monopolized civil society in Macedonia and used their position to suppress dissenting views.
“We’ve witnessed the takeover of the entire civil sector and its abuse and instrumentalization to meet the goals of one political party. That is unacceptable and goes beyond the principles of civic organizing,” Srbov said at the press conference.
“The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia. It has monopolized the civil society sector, pushing outside any organization which disagrees with the Soros ideology,” he stated.
Another co-founder, Cvetin Cilimanov, editor-in-chief of the state-run MIA news agency, accused Soros’s Open Society Foundations of undermining Macedonian sovereignty by working not only with the opposition center-left SDSM party, but also with outside interests. By cooperating with foreign embassies and organizations such as USAID, Cilimanov believes Soros-backed groups have interfered in the political process of Macedonia.
“This is unacceptable and has largely contributed to a feeling in the public that the traditional relations of partnership Macedonia enjoyed with some countries are being undermined,” Cilimanov told journalists.
A third founder of the initiative and editor-in-chief of the Republika news portal, Nenad Mircevski, declared that the group would work towards the “de-Soros-ization” of Macedonia, echoing a speech made by former prime minister and leader of the ruling VMRO-DPMNE party Nikola Gruevski in December. In the speech, Gruevski accused foreign powers and Soros-backed organizations of meddling in Macedonian politics.
Opposition figures have expressed concern at the rhetoric used by Gruevski, fearing the start of a crackdown on dissent and advocacy groups.
The Open Society Foundation (OSF) was set up by Hungarian-born Soros between the mid-1980s to early 1990s with the stated aim of helping former Eastern bloc countries transition from communism. However, aside from its support for progressive causes such as drug policy reform, the OSF has also been involved in political activities and Soros publically supported the violent overthrow of the legitimately-elected government in Ukraine during the ‘Euromaidan’ revolution. This has earned him the ire of Russian authorities, which in 2015 banned Soros and his foundations as a threat to national security.
Soros and his foundations have come under scrutiny elsewhere as well. In an interview with the internet portal 888.hu in December, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that 2017 would bring about “the extrusion of George Soros and the forces symbolized by him.” Orban has accused Soros of undermining European borders and values by helping facilitate the flow of refugees and asylum seekers from the Middle East and elsewhere. During a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange also blasted the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, funded by Soros, for focusing “exclusively on negative stories about Russia and former Soviet states.”
