Pro-Sovereignty Populists on Course to Dominate European 2018 Elections

After the victory of pro-sovereignty and anti-mass migration Czech President Miloš Zeman at the weekend, many are looking to the three big national elections coming in Europe this year in which populists and pro-sovereignty parties look to dominate in Italy and Hungary and place strongly in Sweden.

While 2017 saw major elections in France and Germany, which saw strong showings from the populist French Front National and the Alternative for Germany (AfD), neither managed to enter government. In Austria, the Freedom Party (FPÖ) became the first populist party in Western Europe to enter government and polls show that in 2018 this trend could continue.

Italy

Italy’s general election is coming March 4th, and there has already been a significant rise in support for populist parties like Lega and the Eurosceptic Five Star Movement.

The election will see the first use of the new “Rosatellum” election law passed late last year that mixes the UK’s first-past-the-post system and proportional representation.

Polls show the centre-right coalition of the populist Lega, led by Matteo Salvini, and the Forza Italia party, led by former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, the most likely to place first in the overall vote.

Hungary plans ‘Stop Soros’ laws amid refugee row

George Soros has been branded a ‘public enemy’ by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban

Hungary published details Thursday of tough anti-immigration laws named after “public enemy” George Soros amid a row over claims Budapest covered up a hike in refugee arrivals.

Hungarian-born US billionaire Soros has been called “a public enemy” by Prime Minister Viktor Orban who accuses the 87-year-old of orchestrating migration into Europe since the refugee crisis began in 2015.

Hungary erected fences on its southern borders in 2015 and last year began holding all adult asylum-seekers in guarded border camps.

The latest three laws — called the “Stop Soros law package” — aim to shut remaining loopholes that allow “illegal immigration” to persist, government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said in a radio interview.

The proposed measures include entry bans on foreigners and restraining orders stopping Hungarians approaching the border areas if they are deemed to be “supporting” or “organising” illegal immigration, according to the draft legislation published on the government website.

Orbán: Europe’s Migrants Aren’t Muslim Refugees, They’re ‘Muslim Invaders’

Calling multiculturalism an “illusion”, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán slammed the Merkel government’s “chaotic and anarchic” migrant policy, which led to a flow of “Muslim invaders” entering the European Union.

Responding to the suggestion that Hungary was not showing sufficient “solidarity” with the European Union because Germany accepted 2 million migrants but Hungary will not accept 2,000, Prime Minister Orbán told German tabloid BILD on Sunday: “The difference is: They wanted the migrants. And we do not.”

“We do our work by protecting the external Schengen border with Serbia. That cost us an extra one billion euros since 2015 and Brussels will not reimburse us one cent,” Orbán added.

Asked why Hungarians are resistant to the bloc’s forced migrant redistribution policy, Mr. Orbán asserted that, “We do not consider these people to be Muslim refugees,” but as “Muslim invaders”. Drawing attention to the fact that migrants had travelled through safe countries before heading to more prosperous parts of Europe, the prime minister added that many are “economic migrants” and not in genuine need of asylum.

“That was not a wave of refugees, that was an invasion,” Orbán told BILD, criticising Germany, “which we consider the best example of discipline and the rule of law”, for descending into “chaos and anarchy” in late September 2015 under the chancellorship of Angela Merkel by permitting mass “illegal border crossings”.

‘Accept the Will of the People on Migration, Culture, or Hit the Road’: Orbán Tells Europe’s Leaders

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that Europeans are “asserting their will” by supporting leaders who reject mass migration and support Christian foundations, and gave a warning to politicians who deny the “natural order of democracy”.

The conservative Fidesz party leader told Kossuth Radio’s listeners that 2.3 million Hungarians took part in the national consultation against the George Soros-backed pro-mass migration plan, and Mr. Orbán now intends to spend the next few months convincing his opponents that Europe is right to protect her borders and her culture.

Asked by the 180 Minutes host what made him think that after two years, since the migrant crisis, progressive leaders would listen now, Mr. Orbán said: “Because in the meantime elections are being held in Europe.”

Those who argue for a “mixed population” and to “abolish societies based on national and Christian foundations” in favour of living in multicultural societies “are continually losing ground in national elections”, he observed.

“European people… will assert their will. Look at the elections that have been held in Europe over the last few months. And I think that this process will intensify.

Hungarian Christmas Message: ‘We’ll Protect Christian Culture, Not Retreat Behind Concrete Blocks and Watch Our Women Harassed on New Year’s’

Viktor Orbán has used his annual Christmas message to call on Europeans to protect their Christian culture, and vowed Hungary will not “retreat behind concrete blocks” at Christmas and watched its women and daughters “harassed in the New Year’s Eve crowd” like its multicultural neighbours.

“Christianity is culture and civilization. We live in it. It is not about how many people go to church or how many pray honestly. Culture is the reality of everyday life… Christian culture defines our everyday morals,” wrote the Fidesz leader, in an article published in Magyar Id?k.

Orbán took aim at the enemies of his ‘country first’ policies, who say he cannot claim to be Christians if he will not allow “millions from other continents to settle into Europe” in accordance with the commandment to “love thy neighbour as thyself”.

“They forget the second part of the commandment,” observed Orbán: “To love ourselves.”

The conservative heavyweight explained: “Loving ourselves also means taking and protecting all that we are and who we are. To love ourselves means that we love our country, our nation, our family, Hungarian culture and European civilization.”

Hungary: We Will Make Our Country Family Friendly So Population Can Grow Without Mass Migration

The Hungarian government has pledged measures to support naturally growing the population — rejecting mass migration — as an effort to halt the demographic decline after Prime Minister Viktor Orbán declared 2018 to be a “year of families”.

“Brussels does not really have a family-friendly policy,” Gabriella Selmeczi MP said as she chaired the Visegrád Group family policy parliamentary committee on Thursday.

“Our task is to strengthen the family policy,” Ms. Selmeczi added, with the committee agreeing that instead of mass migration “a good family policy” is the solution to the continent’s declining population.

The Hungarian provisions, which will “support childbearing in a working society”, would be built on three pillars: to reduce the cost of living, to ensure that Hungarians are not excluded from having families because of their economic situation, and to raise, in value, the public perception of child-rearing.

In a similar drive to grow the population without importing migrants from the Middle East and Africa, Poland’s government released a light-hearted, educational video in November encouraging Poles to ‘breed like rabbits’.

Hungary Vows to Fight EU’s ‘Soros Plan’ Migrant Quotas, Sends Guards to Help Macedonia Protect Its Borders

Hungary has vowed to continue resisting EU attempts to impose compulsory migrant quotas, and will even send men and material to neighbouring Macedonia to help it protect its borders.

Lajos Kósa, a member of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s conservative government, warned that the network of so-called “civil society” organisations linked to George Soros — the billionaire financier and open borders activist the Hungarians believe is behind the quota scheme — are ramping up their efforts to push for its implementation.

Kósa cited Soros’s transfer of 130 million Hungarian forints to the Association of Alternative Communities (AKE), one of several NGOs he described as “sham charity civil organizations” whose primary purpose is really “political activities”.

Not content to remain on the defensive, however, Hungary has also announced it will send men and materials to Macedonia, which lies nearby but outside the European Union and not directly on its borders, to help it strengthen and patrol its border with Greece, until at least October 2018.

Battle for the West: Hungarian PM Says ‘Silent Majority’ Will Prevail Over ‘Globalist Elites’ and ‘The Soros Empire’

Hungary’s Viktor Orbán has launched a stunning denunciation of globalism, declaring that the “true spirit of the age” points to a resurgence of conservative values centred on country, family, and tradition.

The Hungarian premier drew battle lines between a “silent majority” of ordinary people who “provide for their families, love their homelands, and insist on their Christian roots” on the one hand, and the “globalist elites, the bureaucrats who serve them, the politicians in their pay, and the agents of the Soros-type networks that embody their interests” on the other.

“We should realise that the soothing melodies pouring out of the speakers of powerful global corporations and global political organisations – siren voices encouraging breezy irresponsibility, frenzied consumption, and boundless self-indulgence – are not at all the same as the spirit of the age,” he said.

“Under the soft blanket of dreams laid down by the global elite, one finds the cold, hard reality of life.

“We see tens of millions of Europeans working hard and struggling day in, day out to keep themselves and their families afloat.

“We see how they yearn for security and order.
