Are George Soros and Pope Francis part of a global conspiracy? Ask Zsolt Bayer

A few months ago Zsolt Bayer, the foul-mouthed journalist who was one of the founding members of Fidesz, publicly announced his intention to watch his language and to remain within the bounds of acceptable journalism. Well, it didn’t take long before he was back in his usual form. His latest is an incredible attack on Pope Francis, which went so far that even the editor of Magyar Kurír, the official newspaper of the Conference of Hungarian Bishops, wrote an editorial about it, which is a sharp turn from the Church’s past practice of ignoring Bayer.

The independent Hungarian media has the bad habit of forcefully reacting to every objectionable word Bayer writes or utters. Critical journalists and politicians on such occasions announce that “we thought that one cannot sink lower,” after which they sadly note that “one obviously can.” It seems that even journalists’ memories are short because there is absolutely nothing new in Bayer’s preoccupation with and denigration of Pope Francis. He has been preoccupied with the pope for at least two years.

Before we condemn, as we should, Bayer for his intemperate attack on the pope, we must keep in mind that the leaders of the Hungarian Catholic Church share some of Bayer’s views. Of course, they don’t call the pope “an ass” because he calls on European Christians to support the refugees, but they share Bayer’s belief that Francis, by virtue of coming from Argentina, is unfit to handle the European crisis and that he is naïve in the extreme. Some of the more outspoken right-wing bishops like Gyula Márfi, archbishop of Veszprém, and László Kiss-Rigó, bishop of Szeged-Csanád, spoke quite openly about the pope’s ignorance of European reality.

The first example of Bayer’s writings on Pope Francis is from June 2015, in which we already find the kernels of his fully developed opinion on the pope–that his ideas were shaped by the fact that he was the son of “migrants,” his family was poor, and he is from “far-away Argentina.” Europeans wait in vain for Pope Francis to come to their rescue in these hard times; he ignores them and moves on to “the army of ferocious, screaming, murderous strangers.”

A couple of months later he went further and called Francis “either a senile old fool who is totally unsuitable to be the pope or a scoundrel.” When the leader of the Christian Democratic Party’s parliamentary delegation was asked to comment on Bayer’s description of Pope Francis as “a senile old fool,” he pretty much stood by Bayer, pointing out that the pope’s solidarity with the downtrodden is stronger than his feeling of responsibility for the safety of Europeans. Zoltán Balog in an interview brushed aside Bayer’s choice of words by saying that after all Zsolt Bayer is a Lutheran, and “one should read what Martin Luther had to say about the pope. In comparison [Bayer’s] words are outright tame.”

A few months later, at the end of 2015, he wrote his most comprehensive assessment of Francis and his unfitness for his job. It is not enough that he favors the migrants because his own family were immigrants and that he doesn’t understand Europe because he came from another continent. He is also an enemy of nations and thus must be a foe of Orbán’s Hungary. How do we know that? Francis abolished the papal “tradition” of incanting Easter and Christmas greetings in 60-odd languages after delivering the Urbi et Orbi Message. Bayer describes the moving scenes of people raising their national flags on St. Peter’s Square after they heard the greeting in their own language. This pope is like the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II, who turned his countries upside-down because of his mad, zealous reforms. As a result, he almost ruined his empire. “Today’s pope is not a believer in the ancient traditions of the Catholic Church.” He is moving away from what he considers to be antiquated and old-fashioned and is establishing new traditions alien to the Catholic Church. But he should have noticed that the reformation of the church is normally demanded by non-Catholics. By removing the multilingual greetings, the pope “removed the nation, the homeland, and the national language from the stage of the world.” In fact, “Francis is working on the creation of a United States of Europe instead of a Europe of nations.” Indeed, George Soros, Pope Francis, and Ferenc Gyurcsány, the only Hungarian politician who dares to suggest such a heresy, are comrades-in-arms.

This is an imaginative theory that has little to do with reality. There are at least two problems with Bayer’s argument. The first is that this “ancient” tradition is only 50 years old. Pope Paul VI introduced it in 1965 when the decision was made to conduct mass in the local tongue instead of Latin. The second problem is that if Pope Francis is such a universalist, why did he decide only recently to abandon Latin as the official language of the synod of bishops? Yes, from here on the language of the synod will be Italian, the lingua franca of the Vatican. That doesn’t mesh with Bayer’s ideas on Francis’s alleged hatred of nation states and national cultures.

And now comes the latest upheaval over Bayer and Pope Francis. This time it was an interview with Bayer at a local television station in the town of Miskolc that caused the Hungarian non-governmental media outlets to raise their voices against the extremist Fidesz journalist. During the interview he repeated his earlier objections. The pope has a non-European past, when it would be of the utmost importance to have a European pope who represents “European interests.” In his opinion, the pope is no different from the politicians of the European Union because he goes against the will and goals of European citizens. “Do not imagine that what [the pope] says is divine revelation. It is only stupid, moronic political opinion,” Bayer said.

It looks as if Bayer’s notions about the pope have evolved over time because by now he is convinced that “it is no accident that a non-European man became the pope.” I guess it was part of an international conspiracy. Knowing something about how these guys’ minds work, I can easily conjure up a scenario by which George Soros and other Jewish financiers with business designs on a Europe with a mixed population conspire with the top hierarchy of the Catholic Church to pick a man who would serve their interests. One could call this, as does Christopher Adam of Hungarian Free Press, typical double talk, but since Bayer a couple of days after the interview insisted that he had listened again to the interview and would not take a word back from it, I think he actually believes this foolish idea which, let’s face it, is not very far from the thinking of the top Fidesz leadership, including that of Viktor Orbán. I would like to remind everyone that Orbán, especially during 2015, kept repeating that the move of so many refugees at once “cannot be a coincidence.” And if it is not a coincidence, then it is the result of design. But design on the part of whom?

I guess by now it is clear to readers that I see no serious differences between the thinking of the mainstream Fidesz and Catholic leaderships and the ideas of Zsolt Bayer, expressed in crude prose. The message is more or less the same. I suspect that the reason for Viktor Orbán’s lenient attitude toward Bayer’s “artistic endeavors” is his satisfaction with his old friend’s way of expressing his and his government’s position in down-to-earth, direct language that can reach audiences on the far right. Two years ago I reported on a far-right journalist who claimed that Pope Francis is not a bad man, just not a European and not a Catholic. He is not only manipulated by Jews but is a Jew himself, a son of Jewish refugees from Italy. It is these people Bayer is supposed to reach, most likely with Orbán’s blessing.

Admittedly, this kind of talk comes only from what I call the lunatic fringe, but even Magyar Idők and subsequently Válasz in August 2016 reported the discovery that in countries with a sizable Catholic population George Soros targets the Catholic church with the goal of influencing public opinion on issues he cares about.  He spent a great deal of money, for instance, to convince Catholic priests in the United States to emphasize issues that would help the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. When the right-wing internet site Flag Polgári Magazin republished the article, its title was changed to “Shocking! A leaked e-mail reveals why Pope Francis supports migration at any cost.”

Linking George Soros and Pope Francis is perhaps the quintessential conspiracy theory. Zsolt Bayer is helping the far right develop its conspiratorial imagination.

So what if the Russians are involved in ‘active measures’. The Soviets did it before. So did the Americans then and so do the Americans now, along with the Germans, Brits, French and any number of others. (I see that you introduced a hyphen to your ‘nom de guerre’, old-1956.) The Kremlin isn’t necessarily everywhere you mentioned, if it is, that does not mean that the Kremlin has very much affect. With the rise of electronic communication, independent actors can work for international players of their choosing, with or without remuneration. As for creating refugees, the Kremlin is a major player only in the Middle East, that due to its active military involvement in the region. So, what’s your point, old-1956? Tell us something we didn’t know. Who does not know that the Kremlin has its fingers in most pies around the world? Who does not know that the US has its fingers in those same pies? Wolfi, stop sparring with old-1956. He is primarily a rightwinger. He thinks that (per Michael Kellogg) Nazism [National Socialism] came from Russia.

The funny side of this is that most Catholics now live outside of Europe afaik – the Catholic Church is becoming an exotic thing in Europe itself (just like the other Christian seccts) …

Of course for these loonies like Bayer etc religion is a perfect vehicle for their ideas of xenophobia, homophobia etc.

Some people will never change – it’s maybe in their genes to hate everything/everyone that’s foreign to them or just “different”. But in civilised countries they’re already a minority – and in 50 years probably Hungary will reach a similar level, we just have to wait for them loonies to die out …

About a week I came across the video of that program, I was shocked hearing the nonsense produced by Bayer. Checked behind the program, and it appeared to be a weekly ‘political magazine’, started in 2015.Jan on local Miskolc TV, in which Mr.B is featuring as the all knowing man. Why this man is given so much TV time in and around Miskolc, I haven’t got a clue, afaik he’s born, grew up and living in Budapest and doesn’t any connection with Miskolc apart from it being a Hungarian (major) city. In the past Miskolc was a major MSZP stronghold, but since 2010 it changed into the hands of Fidesz (like almost all). I’m not familiar with any local Hungarian TV, but I suspect it to be similar (and locally even worse) that the nationwide public/state TV, when it comes to unfair reporting of all things with political, even the smallest, interest. For all the theories Mr.B (more or less in the name of Fidesz) is spraying around over and into the heads of the Hungarian people, I can only say (again): Ki mint él, úgy ítél .

Nothing really new for regulars here, but very good to see this being picked up by international media and hopefully spreading. Strangely the term “Mafia State” doesn’t appear in the article, but expected soon to be generally understood and connected to the current Hungarian government…

Guest

Rather OT re the reality of the Catholic Church (and the way the current Pope is trying to change it):

There has been a big scandal concerning the famous Catholic boy choir Regensburger Domspatzen.
Now the Church had to acknowledge that for more than fifty years the priests responsible for this choir used brutal force on the young boys (around 500 cases) – and some even sexually abused them (at least 100 cases)!

The whole sordid affair was of course knowingly “pushed under the carpet” by the Catholic hierarchy – including a bishop who is the brother of the former German Pope!

Can you imagine this?
Now the Catholic Church in Germany is thinking about paying those men who were abused as boys – in the USA that would probably cost some billions (like the story of the Jesuits who acted similarly some years ago …).

So again;
How can anyone still connect to the biggest group of pedophiles known to man?
Horrible people …

Re: ‘The overwhelming majority of Muslims are not terrorists. The overwhelming majority of Catholics are not pedophiles’

What I find interesting is that fellows like Bayer appear now to seemingly be the more powerful and influential opinion makers in Magyar society. They get the time to spit it all out. Question is what will happen when the Jews, Catholics and other religious organizations get further and further marginalized through both brutal and subtle rhetoric?

If the religious institutions go I’d suggest no matter their current position and the public perceptions it would pose difficulties in society. For the reason that at bottom they embody the moral and ethical principles of that
society in their tenets.

And further that is why it is incumbent in the case with Francis that he must stop the sicknesses. Or it will undermine everything his See has stood for throughout the ancient centuries.

Eva how does this statement: “Some of the more outspoken right-wing bishops like Gyula Márfi, archbishop of Veszprém, and László Kiss-Rigó, bishop of Szeged-Csanád, spoke quite openly about the pope’s ignorance of European reality.” Become transformed into this statement: “I guess by now it is clear to readers that I see no serious differences between the thinking of the mainstream Fidesz and Catholic leaderships and the ideas of Zsolt Bayer, expressed in crude prose.” The supreme leader of Hungarian Catholicism is Cardinal Erdő and he has not supported these outrageous comments about the Pope. Cardinal Erdő is also President of the Council of the Bishops’ Conferences of Europe. Cardinal Erdő is a deeply conservative Catholic with whom I have numerous disagreements, but he also recognizes that Pope Francis comes from a multicultural Catholic tradition that reflects the reality of the world wide church today. Cardinal Erdő is also aware from what I have read that one of greatest threats to the Church is the conversion of Catholics to evangelical religions particularly in Latin America, but even in Hungary. Since becoming the archbishop of Budapest, Erdo has enlisted young volunteers to knock on doors across Hungary, encouraging lapsed Catholics to return… Read more »

Re: Bayer attack on Francis Looks a Reformation #2 round from the Magyar diocese. Zsolt the risen Luther seems to have the problem now with the effort of promulgating Christian ‘good works’ now in totality. Even though Luther put more emphasis on faith in man’s connection to God he never did disregard doing good works as part of the Christian. One thing that can be said is that with the ‘foul-mouthed’ Zsolt he is revolutionizing the concept of what a true Christian is now in a certain fearful and suspicious corner of the world. Where Luther used his prodigious intellect to try and understand and come to personal conclusions on the meaning of his faith Bayer plods on with nothing but paranoid and knee-jerk rationalizations on the country where it will suffer a grevious martyrdom from the overwhelming and sordid hordes coming from afar. Once again as in the 16th the Church is having to deal with challenges to its authority, unity and principles as well as to try and rid itself of the cancers from within as without. And with Bayer each time he attacks the Church, Francis cannot help thinking that he is one of many who act… Read more »

Viktor Orbán should read this piece and realize that there is lot to be lost by not allowing refugees (and nonrefugees [migransok]) into Hungary. As for that shitbag [szarzsák] Zsolt Bayer, he can take a pass on the piece.

Hungarians are going to learn a harsh lesson. It is a lesson that will be painful and long and will last until they learn that the world they occupy is either a free Europe or Russian inspired fascism.
Incidentally the English are about to have the same dished up to them. Both nations need it because they are seriously deluded.
The EU is the only show in town. The alternative is gloom, xenophobia, needless conflict and fascism. Luckily it will be accompanied by poverty. If the Hungarians or the English do not see this yet, they will soon find out.
See yesterday’s Nepszava for the opinion of Advocate General Bot on the Hungarian, Slovak case before the ECJ. Szijjarto’s comment on it is an outrage. He does not seem to understand that the ECJ is a Court of Law and the AG is an officer of it. Since the law it applies is also the law of Hungary his comments constitute a challenge to the rule of law. That is more dangerous than the incomprehensible garbage from Schmidt and Bayer.

You asked:
“I would like to remind everyone that Orbán, especially during 2015, kept repeating that the move of so many refugees at once “cannot be a coincidence.” And if it is not a coincidence, then it is the result of design. But design on the part of whom?”

The answer:
“As David Petegorsky, executive director of the American Jewish Congress, stated in an address to the biennial convention of the American Jewish Congress in 1948: “We are profoundly convinced that Jewish survival will depend on Jewish statehood in Palestine, on the one hand, and on the existence of a creative, conscious and well adjusted community in this country on the other. Such a creative community can exist only within the framework of a progressive and expanding democratic society, which through its institutions and public policies gives full expression to the concept of cultural pluralism.”

This was decreed for the USA. Reality indicates Europe did not get a special dispensation.
