In the past few weeks, Hungary has been getting heat for moving to enact legislation that could close down the Central European University, a Budapest education institution founded by Soros.
Ostensibly, this is because the CEU has unique ability to issue both Hungarian and American degrees, by dint of having accreditation in both countries. This puts it at a competitive advantage relative to Hungarian institutions. Critics however say that Fidesz is picking on it as a bogeyman to pump up his party’s ratings in time for the parliamentary elections next spring (though opinion polls seem to indicate he doesn’t have any real need for such a boost).
However, on looking deeper into the CEU’s operations, one starts to realize why the globalists are really unhappy with this:
Gendered Memories of the Holocaust
Gender and Migration
Communism and Gender
Introduction to Feminist Literary Studies
Preserving and Interpreting Knowledges of the Past and Promoting Social Justice
Islamic Feminism in Historical Perspective
Immigrant Integration Policy and Practice in North America and Europe
Minority Rights, Migrants and the Cosmopolitan Challenge
(3) Not only was it founded by George Soros, but as Matt Forney points out, it is also run by Michael Ignatieff, one of those second tier “liberal interventionist” IYIs who hasn’t seen a war where he doesn’t want the US to intervene and will tell you all about it in the Washington Post.
So the CEU appears to be a nest of neocon-in-all-but-name propaganda pushing cultural dissolution on the Hungarians, and apparently without even any academic merit to balance it off (it does not appear in ARWU’s top 500 list of world universities, though in fairness, neither does any Hungarian university).
Good on the Hungarians, I guess.
