This week Rep. Kaptur (and 22 Democrat colleagues) sent a letter to President Trump's Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, Wess Mitchell, demanding the reinstatement of a cancelled State Department program to send $700,000 to finance anti-government stories in Hungary's media in advance of the upcoming 2019 local elections in that country.
"Supporting an independent media in Hungary should be a priority" for the United States, the Congressional letter says.
Do Kaptur and her Capitol Hill colleagues not understand the basic fact that when a foreign government funds a sector of another country's media, that media can no longer be considered "independent"?
How is it not meddling in Hungary's democracy for the United States government to finance stories attacking the democratically-elected Hungarian government?
This is the world of Rep. Marcy Kaptur and all of Washington's interventionists. They have been stricken with hysterical paranoia for two years over unproven claims that Putin was pulling our strings when we went to the ballot box, yet at every turn they demand that the United States government do that exact thing: manipulate the ballot boxes of other sovereign states.
Restricting MASS migration of a hateful, intolerant, anti-leftist, extreme far-right rape culture is a GOOD thing. Anyone who thinks it’s not is on the wrong side of history.
