Hungary (LINK), and Victor Orban in particular are catalysts in the global, political upheaval of these past few decades. Hungary's Fundamental Law, adopted in 1990 when Soviet rule crumbled, is anathema to the 'globalist' pursuit of open borders, free trade and unlimited immigration.
Western 'legacy media' portray Victor Orban as an oppressive tyrant bent on destroying the European Union and his people as being unwilling subjects to his rule. You have heard this no doubt listening to news in Canada, the U.S., Great Britain, Australia and from other governments pushing their people towards a world without borders, (LINK) but why is that?
At the end of July, FOX news personality Tucker Carlson decided to find out by paying a visit to Hungary and meeting with Mr. Orban. What Tucker Carlson found and has shared with the world flies in the face of 'legacy media' portrayals of 'poor, oppressed Hungary'; Hungary is a thriving, Christian, conservative nation with friends in high places. (LINK), (LINK),
The New American Conservative, in their article looking at Hungary today, laid global efforts to overcome Hungarian law at the feet of George Soros, a Hungarian by birth;
“Soros is a true secular liberal globalist whose interests are diametrically opposed to those who want Hungary to remain Hungary. The fact that he is Jewish is a canard that allows his supporters to explain away all criticism of him and his work to undermine European national traditions that he finds objectionable.” (LINK)
The Washington Post in a 2018 article tried to describe Hungary and its leader; "He wants to make the nation great again after centuries of subjugation and humiliation at the hands of the Ottomans, the victors of World War I, the Soviet Union and now menacing globalists to the west." (LINK)
That assessment was surely formed listening to one of Victor Orban's many public appearances, most notably these words said during a 2018 rally before more than 100,000 people;
“We sent home the sultan with his army, the Habsburg kaiser with his raiders and the Soviets with their comrades...Now we will send home Uncle George.”
“No way, because it’s our land. It’s a nation, it’s a community. Families, tradition, history, language. “
In one session with Tucker Carlson, Mr. Orban stated; “You can’t say simply, ‘Okay, [Hungary] is a nice country. I would like to come here and live here because it’s a nicer life. This is not a human right to come here,” Orban told a noticeably stunned Carlson.
What is wrong with a strong, stable country that promotes religious freedoms while defending it's own borders against unwanted invasion? I suppose if you believe the world should be under one government then you will find everything wrong with that, just as you will probably take offence at Hungary's Fundamental Laws, (LINK), a part of which is copied here;
“We do not recognise the suspension of our historic constitution due to foreign occupations. We deny any statute of limitations for the inhuman crimes committed against the Hungarian nation and its citizens under the national socialist and the communist dictatorship.
We do not recognise the communist constitution of 1949, since it was the basis for tyrannical rule; we therefore proclaim it to be invalid.
We agree with the Members of the first free National Assembly, which proclaimed as its first decision that our current liberty was born of our 1956 Revolution.
We date the restoration of our country’s self-determination, lost on the nineteenth day of March 1944, from the second day of May 1990, when the first freely elected organ of popular representation was formed. We shall consider this date to be the beginning of our country’s new democracy and constitutional order.
We hold that after the decades of the twentieth century, which led to a state of moral decay, we have an abiding need for spiritual and intellectual renewal. “
The fact that Trudeau doesn't think much of Victor Orban, (LINK) means to me at least, that Victor must be on the right path.
