‘Hungary First, America First’ – Orban Hands Right ‘Antidote to Progressive Dominance’ at CPAC

In his opening address at CPAC Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán presented the global right with what he called the “antidote to progressive dominance”.

The global right can be victorious against the progressive hegemony so long as it acts sensibly and puts in the work to win the culture war – this was the message Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán gave to attendees with his opening address at CPAC Hungary on Thursday, launching the event which represents the first time that the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has ventured beyond America.

According to a report by Hungarian newspaper Magyar Nemzet, Orbán presented the crowd with what he called the “antidote to progressive dominance” that he believed would help the right worldwide to achieve power.

Although noting that there are no “miracle weapons” that will end the culture war, the Prime Minister said that the Right could gain significant ground by cultivating its own media and political class, while staying away from fringe conspiracy theories and the extremes of politics.

Orbán’s Hungary: Lessons for Britain? Is Hungary Unfairly Demonised in the West? (Video)

Amid the ideological madness and hysteria currently besieging the West, many conservatives view Hungary as a land of sanity and common sense. Hungary’s measured approach to immigration, its patriotic cultural policies and its promotion of the traditional family have angered much of the establishment in Britain and the EU. But for traditionalists and conservatives, Hungary reminds them of how the West used to be.

Hungarian PM warns tyranny ‘greater than this pandemic’ is coming

‘Ownership is obsolete, privacy is non-existent, and globalist organizations achieve complete control’

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban long has been recognized as a renegade – the leader not willing to submit to a globalist agenda or mandates from the established power structure.

He began his career objecting to Russian troops in Hungary, and they were removed a short time later. He moved his nation toward a free-market economy, led its entry into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, urged the adoption of a constitution outlining conservative moral themes and defended national sovereignty.

He further outraged the establishment by erecting a fence on his nation’s border to disrupt the flow of illegal aliens coming from the Middle East and Africa.

And even while fighting COVID, his nation enacted legislation that banned school content “deemed to promote homosexuality and gender change.”

PM Orbán: National and cultural identity is a human right

The Hungarian prime minister reaffirms that international court rulings cannot violate people’s right to their identity

In the latest edition of his so-called “Samizdat” series (a genre referring to literature banned during Communism, and circulated in secret), Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán reacts to the decision of the Hungarian Constitutional Court, in which it returns powers to the hands of the authorities to control or prevent the flow of illegal migration through their borders.

Last year, the European Court of Justice ruled that the detention of migrants in so-called transit zones on the southern borders of Hungary was illegal, and it violated their human rights. Additionally, according to the court, the authorities are obliged to start asylum proceedings with each illegal entrant, instead of turning them back to safe countries that they arrived from.

Orbán reiterates in his Samizdat that the meaning of the EU court’s decision is just precisely this: Hungary has to admit all migrants into the country who have been detained by its border guards while crossing illegally. This, he states, is contrary to his country’s Basic Law. For this reason, the government had asked the Constitutional Court to advise on the matter. In the prime minister’s interpretation, the court came back with three distinct decisions in the matter:

Orban: Western Europe ‘Experimenting on People’ by ‘Mixing Huge Masses of Muslims with Christians’

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has accused Western European governments of having embarked on a grand exercise in “human experimentation” by “mixing huge masses of Muslims with indigenous Christians” in the hope that “something good would come of it”.

In an interview with Hungary’s Kossuth Radio, a transcript of which has been seen by Breitbart London, Prime Minister Orbán was asked about a then-upcoming Constitutional Court ruling on “whether the EU rules on immigration take precedence over Hungarian law” — which may herald a legal clash with Brussels if the Hungarian jurists fail to affirm EU supremacy, similar to the EU’s ongoing sovereignty dispute with Poland.

“In the whole European context Hungary is a special country, because we’re the only one in which the people have decided what to do: we had a referendum on immigration,” Orbán told his interlocutor, contrasting this with the situation in Western Europe where “the governments, the elites… think that immigration is a good thing, and so they let in huge numbers of immigrants [in 2015-16] thinking that something good would come of it.”

“Since it cannot be scientifically – or rather empirically – proven in advance whether or not it will be good, I think that this is a supposition, or an experiment. So the Western Europeans have embarked on a great experiment to see if something good will come from mixing huge masses of Muslims with indigenous Christians,” the Hungarian alleged.

Le Pen Warns Hungarians: ‘Avoid the Fate of France’

“Take a good look around the world at what is happening now.”

Presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has warned Hungarians to avoid the fate of France by refusing to capitulate to mass immigration.

The National Rally leader made the comments during an interview with Mandiner.

“(Viktor Orbán) is not exaggerating at all. Eighty-five percent of French want to stop migration. If I could give one piece of advice to the Hungarians: take a good look around the world at what is happening now, and be careful not to get to the fate of France,” she said.

Le Pen has vowed to hold a national referendum which would put a halt to immigration if she wins next year’s presidential election.

The populist candidate said that her foresight on the problems mass immigration would lead to have been proven accurate.

EU climate deal would ‘kill the middle class’, PM Orbán says

European democracy depends on the existence of the middle class

European Commission Vice-President, Frans Timmermans’ proposal for a new climate package called Fit for 55 is killing the European middle class, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Thursday upon his arrival at the Union’s two-day summit of EU leaders in Brussels.

The Hungarian prime minister believes that the work of the Commission and Frans Timmermans would raise energy prices, the signs of which are already visible, and the plans will lead to further price increases. “He is destroying the middle class, even though all of European democracy hinges on the existence of the middle class,” he warned.

“European democracy is being jeopardized by those who are raising the price of electricity and gas to the sky. Therefore, these plans need to be withdrawn and rethought,” he said.

Make more babies! Orban’s gang of 4 on EU collision course after rejecting immigration in favour of pro-family policies

At the heart of this debate is demographics, which the leaders of Central Europe argue is the pressing issue of our time. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, for example, questioned whether climate change was “really more important than demographic issues? Is it really more important than the future of our countries, the future of our nations?”

Four central European countries have declared declining birth rates – not climate change – to be their most pressing problem, but they definitely don’t want it solved by Brussels’ solution of opening the doors to migrants.

Central European leaders have met in Budapest for the Fourth Demographic Summit and signed a declaration stating that mass immigration is not the answer to Europe’s declining birth rate.

The summit, which was hosted by Hungarian PM Viktor Orban, was attended by the leaders of the Czech Republic, Serbia, and Slovenia, plus Mike Pence, the former United States vice-president.

This will go down like a lead balloon in Brussels, particularly as Slovenia holds the rotating presidency of the European Council at the moment. The summit’s resolution is also a direct challenge to the West’s liberal ideals, where family values are traduced as “old-fashioned.”

Viktor Orbán Gives Pope Warning About Mass Migration to the West

Asks him not to allow Christianity to “perish”.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán asked Pope Francis not to let Christianity “perish” as he gave him a gift that challenged the the Supreme Pontiff’s advocacy for mass immigration.

“At the meeting on Sunday, according to state media, Orban even handed the Pope a provocative gift: A copy of a letter from a 13th-century Hungarian king to then-Pope Innocent IV, asking for Rome’s help to defeat an onslaught of foreign invaders — an apparent reference to migrants in the 21st century,” reports CBS News.

Balazs Orban, Deputy Minister for the Prime Minister’s Office described the historical importance of the letter on Twitter.

“PM Orbán met Pope Francis and presented a letter that King Béla IV wrote for Pope Innocent IV in 1250,” he wrote. “The King warned of the looming threat of the Tatar invasion and called for the unity of Europe. He was ignored. 35 yrs later HU fended off the Tatars with great bloodshed.”
