Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban became the first European leader to openly oppose unchecked immigration and declare a war against the ideology of “political correctness” that has plagued Europe. He also slammed foreign-funded NGOs operating in his country who have been bringing in refugees from Middle East and North Africa.
In an address to his nation, Orban slammed European countries and governments, the previous US government, organisations bringing in refugees, ‘liberal’ apologists and basically everyone that has been supporting immigration from Middle East and North Africa.
He said that globalist politicians (a reference to those like Barack Obama and Angela Merkel) have been trying to “sweep away a democracy of debate and replace it with a democracy of [political] correctness, and true power, decisions and influence [are] not held by elected governments, but [by] unelected global networks, media gurus and international organisations”.
In fact, Orban’s sharp attack on political correctness and the European Union, which has been almost forcing member nations to take in refugees, is a first for any European nation.
Without naming any country, he pointed to the fact that the forced ideology of “political correctness” in any subject dealing with immigrants has led to an uprising of those whose “mouths had been gagged” in the name of political correctness.
Talking to a huge gathering at the Castle Garden Bazaar in Budapest on February 10, the Prime Minister delivered said that the arrival of Donald Trump in US and Britain’s exit from European Union are signs of the changes that are happening on the ground, which the “the lords of globalist politics” do not like.
Orban, an outspoken critic of mass Muslim immigration, said that at least from an economic perspective “open society” as is being advocated by the liberals means that “the foxes are let into the henhouse to freely compete, and nobody can stop the foxes winning – time after time”.
He pointed at the plan of the European “elites” who flood the countries resisting their economic domination plans “with millions of migrants, who have different religions and customs”.
“This is how the world’s most bizarre coalition of people smugglers, human rights activists and elite European politicians came into existence, specifically to deliberately bring millions of migrants into Europe”, he said.
Identifying correctly the changing geopolitical and societal situation in Europe, Orban brilliantly turned the tide against the so-called liberals:
“We shall let in true refugees”, Orban told a cheering audience: “Germans, Dutch, French and Italians, terrified politicians and journalists who here in Hungary want to find the Europe they have lost in their homelands.”
Without naming anyone, Orban slammed those who protested against Donald Trump for trying to do exactly what they were opposing before Trump’s election.
“If somewhere an election is not won by liberals, then in that place democracy no longer exists. They have proclaimed that the people are a danger to democracy”, he said, “and those who previously feared hysterically for press freedom are now demanding restrictions on the media and the internet.”
He also warned against the activities of non-governmental organisations funded from abroad and seeking to exert influence on local politics: “Here there are large predators swimming in the water, and this is the transnational empire of George Soros.” Soros is a Hungarian-American business magnet who is a known backer of prominent Left institutions and media.
How much impact does Orban’s words have on European politics? He is a powerful leader and is basically the face and voice of all central and eastern European countries. They are usually against the economic policies of European Union members from the western part of the continent.
Hungary did not bow to pressure from Obama government, Brussels, “and even Berlin” to allow migrants move unchecked through his country at the height of immigration. The Hungarian government resisted and built a fence to stop them thus, according to Orban, “protecting Hungary and with it Europe also”.
Even before Orban had said, “Those arriving have been raised in another religion, and represent a radically different culture. Most of them are not Christians, but Muslims … This is an important question, because Europe and European identity is rooted in Christianity.”
