The European Union (EU) must “pump funding” into left-wing education to counter fears that progressive policies threaten the continent’s “safety, prosperity and cultural identity”, according to an NGO set up by globalist financier George Soros.
“The EU appears powerless to halt the rise of the far right,” writes Israel Butler, advocacy head of Civil Liberties Union for Europe — an organisation founded with money from the open borders-backing billionaire, in a piece for Euractiv.
Pointing to recent populist victories in the Czech Republic, Austria, and Germany, he says Brussels must take action or else see “progressive governments … end up in a powerless minority, outmanoeuvred by the zombie of right-wing populism chomping its way through the EU”.
“But there is still hope,” writes Butler, a former senior policy analyst at Soros’s Open Society European Policy Institute, going on to suggest that the EU “borrow[s] from its foreign policy and fund NGOs to build support for its fundamental values among the general population”.
“Any country preparing to join the EU sees Union funding pumped into supporting NGOs that promote rights, democracy and the rule of law, and funding to support independent media,” he explains. “All the EU needs to do is copy these models inside its member states.”
