Orban’s Hungary fights an existential war

“A democracy disappears”, wrote Andrew Sullivan last April in the New York Magazine, before Viktor Orban was confirmed Prime Minister of Hungary. The fear was for the so called “illiberal democracy”. Orban is the leader of the “other Europe”. The troublemaker. The bad boy of the EU.

The Hungarian premier, from migrants to liberalism, is certainly the nemesis of Brussels, and that is why the European Parliament just sanctioned his country. A democracy certainly disappeared in Hungary, but not for the reasons given by Sullivan, but because of an appalling demographic crisis.

Hungary Defiant in the Face of EU Censure

The European Parliament has voted to pursue unprecedented disciplinary action against Hungary over alleged breaches of the European Union’s “fundamental values.” The EU has accused the Hungarian government of attacks against the media, minorities and the rule of law.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has denied the charges, and said they are a retaliation for his government’s refusal to take in migrants from the Muslim world.

The censure represents another salvo in a showdown between pro- and anti-EU forces over populism and nationalism ahead of European Parliament elections in May 2019.

Hungary Censured as European Showdown Over Populism Takes Shape

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban received an unprecedented European Union censure as a looming showdown over the bloc’s rising nationalism took shape.

Hungarian stocks and the forint weakened after EU lawmakers called for Orban’s government to face possible sanctions for eroding democratic standards. The recommendation now goes to EU governments, which are likely to spare Hungary the most serious sanction of suspending the country’s vote in the bloc as that would require unanimity and Poland has pledged to shield Orban.

Italy and Hungary Create ‘Anti-Immigration Axis’

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini have pledged to create an “anti-immigration axis” aimed at countering the pro-migration policies of the European Union.

Hungary using starvation tactics against asylum-seekers

Hungary’s denial of food to some rejected asylum-seekers in transit camps is an attempt to force them to Serbia without appealing their case, according to human rights groups.

Human Rights Watch on Wednesday became the latest group to accuse Hungarian authorities of violating basic international asylum standards and human decency by using hunger as an anti-immigration tactic.

No one will starve, this is HRW propaganda.

Stop the Fake News That Hungary Is Anti-Semitic

Next week prime minister Viktor Orban travels to Israel.

Next week Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban makes his first visit to the state of Israel. This symbolic and diplomatic event, considered against a consistent record of pro-Israel support and concrete measures to confront anti-Semitism in Hungary, should bring closure to the myth, popular among the Left, global Jewish organizations, and in the world press, of Hungary’s contemporary anti-Semitism. Instead of derision and conjecture, Orban deserves praise for his zero-tolerance policy on anti-Semitism and commitment to protecting all Hungarian citizens, including Hungary’s Jews.

David Goldman: Anti-Soros Is Not Anti-Semitism

David P. Goldman has written a bracing defense of Viktor Orbán’s government, insisting that Hungary is one of the friendliest places in the world for Jews and that any leader in his right mind would oppose the political machinations of George Soros.

Writing in the conservative journal First Things on Friday, Goldman observed that the irresponsible accusations of anti-Semitism leveled against Prime Minister Orbán hinge upon his vigorous resistance to Mr. Soros’ attempts to work around the democratic process to push Hungary in the direction of open borders.

Hungarian Govt Says ‘Hypocrisy and Political Correctness’ on Migration Enabled Terrorism

Mr Szijjártó levelled the accusation during an exclusive interview with Breitbart’s Amanda House, after she asked him how Hungary had avoided some of the problems countries such as Germany and Italy have encountered since the onset of the migrant crisis.

Hungary: the bad boy of the EU

Brussels fears Hungary because it refuses to bow to imperial technocracy.

According to the political establishment that runs the EU, Hungary has become a xenophobic, authoritarian society. The Hungarian government and in particular the prime minister, Viktor Orban, are continually denounced for their alleged violations of EU values. The mainstream Western media have picked up the message that it is okay to hate Hungary. They give the impression that Hungary is a totalitarian and viciously anti-Semitic society in which critics of the regime are silenced and the government dominates the media.

Hungary approves ‘Stop Soros’ law criminalizing aid to illegal migrants

Hungary’s parliament has passed a law that could see anyone helping illegal immigrants claim asylum in the country imprisoned. The ‘Stop Soros’ law is named after Hungarian-born billionaire and open-borders advocate, George Soros.

The law was voted on in the Hungarian parliament on Wednesday, where Viktor Orban’s right-wing Fidesz party holds a two-thirds majority. Under the law, individuals who aid migrants, informing them about the asylum procedure or “providing financial or property benefit” will be liable for a 12-month prison sentence. NGOs working with migrants will need to seek licenses and will see the scope of their work severely restricted.

Hungarian Leader: Europeans Purposely Being Replaced With Muslims as Soros Profits

Follow the money and the ideology. That was the message of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán (shown) in a recent interview, as he stated that Europe’s population was purposely being replaced by venal ideologists — such as billionaire George Soros — who hope to profit from the continent’s “ruination.” Moreover, he warned that another “high tide” of mass Muslim migration was nigh.
