(WatchDogReport.org) – Billionaire George Soros is in the spotlight once again. This time, it isn’t for his work in the United States. A Hungarian politician faced massive backlash after comparing the Jewish businessman to Adolf Hitler.
On Sunday, November 29, Szilard Demeter retracted offensive statements he made about Soros. In an op-ed on Saturday, he claimed an open, multicultural society is “deadly” to the way of life across the continent, and said, “Europe is George Soros’ gas chamber.” The ministerial commissioner also called the billionaire “the liberal Führer.”
Update: On Sunday, Szilárd Demeter announced the withdrawal of his article and also suspended his Facebook account.

Hungary’s Jewish community accused Demeter of anti-Semitism for his comments. The commissioner later said he was just trying to show how Soros’ activism is inadvertently causing harm to the victims of the Holocaust.
Soros often faces criticism in the US for his many donations to leftist causes. He’s regularly and accurately accused of trying to buy power as many politically-active Liberal billionaires do.
