Why Hungary’s Victor Orbán Got It Right on Islam

Some central and east European countries are being criticized by more “progressive” Western nations for not wanting to take in Muslim refugees.

Chief among them is Hungary, specifically in the person of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. Western media are characterizing him as “xenophobic,” “full of hate speech,” and Europe’s “creeping dictator.” Sounding like the mafia boss of the Left, the Guardian simply refers to him as a “problem” that needs to be “solved.”

Orbán’s crime is that he wants to secure his nation against Muslims and preserve its Christian identity. According to Hungary’s prime minister…

  • In my opinion Hungary, Poland, Czechia, etc. should threaten to leave the EU rather than destroy themselves by welcoming Muslim invaders. If Germany, France, Italy, etc. prefer to welcome Muslim invaders than to maintain the unity of East and West Europe, then they have really gone mad and fully deserve to become Eurabia.

    Hungary’s parliament has passed a law authorising the deployment of the army and giving soldiers the power to use non-lethal force as they confront the migration crisis.
    Under the new legislation, the army is allowed to use rubber bullets, tear gas and grenades.
    The measure, which was supported by Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s centre-right party Fidesz, was passed with 151 votes to 12 against.

    I can see this guy being Hungary’s Prime Minister for as long as he wants the job. So the Euros better get used to him.
