Orban: No Place for Multiculturalism in Hungary

“What outrages our opponents the most is the fact that in our Constitution we have written that Hungary has Christian roots; that here there is no place for multiculturalism; that a child has the right to a mother and a father; and that our nation has the right to defend its borders – which are also the borders of the European Union,” the Hungarian Prime Minister observed.

Breakup of EU ‘can’t be ruled out’ if Brussels tries to enforce pro-immigration policies – Orban

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said that a breakup of the European Union cannot be ruled out if one part of the bloc tries to impose pro-immigration policies on another.
Quoted on the Hungarian government’s website, Orban said he could see a danger of fragmentation within the European Union.

“If we are left alone and they do not force islamisation on us, Europe can continue to live as the club of free nations,” Orban said, but added that if Brussels forces Hungary “to accept the UN migration pact or the European Commission’s decisions so as to make us fit their own Western concessive policies, a breakup [of the EU] cannot be ruled out.”

EU’s Jean-Claude Juncker slams Viktor Orban over Soros migrant poster

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s political party no longer belongs in the center-right EPP grouping in the European Parliament, European Commission (EC) President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Tuesday.

Juncker was responding to a political poster by Orban’s Fidesz party that accuses the EC chief of working with the billionaire philanthropist George Soros to allow more migrants into Hungary.

“Against lies there’s not much you can do,” Juncker said. He added that the head of the European People’s Party (EPP) in the European Parliament, Manfred Weber, should consider “if I need this voice” in the grouping.

Ha! Ha!

Viktor Orbán calls for anti-migration politicians to take over EU

Hungary’s far-right prime minister, Viktor Orbán, has called for “anti-migration politicians” to take over Europe’s institutions after this spring’s elections, as he hailed a new partnership between Poland’s rightwing government and Italy’s populist interior minister, Matteo Salvini.

“This is a topic that is radically transforming European politics, it’s the defining political process in Europe,” Orbán said at a rare press conference in Budapest on Thursday. “The party structures, traditionally left or right, are being taken over by a different dimension – those for migration and against immigration.”

Orbán said Hungary’s goal was to gain an anti-immigration majority in the European parliament, then in the executive European commission, and later, as national elections change the continent’s political landscape, the European council, where national leaders make the most important EU decisions.

Sounds good to me.

Hungary’s Victor Orban seems to have no time for George Soros employee Michael Ignatieff

‘Enough is enough,’ Michael Ignatieff says, giving Hungary a deadline in political battle with university

Gee I wonder why… Kicked Out of Hungary, Soros‘s Open Society Foundations Re-Opens in Berlin

…In addition, earlier this year author and sociologist Frank Furedi said he had witnessed young globalist activists working for Soros, who he dubbed the billionaire’s “missionaries”, boast about their role in toppling governments around the world including in Libya, Egypt, and Ukraine.

Recalling his experience at an Open Society Youth Exchange in Hungary in 2013, he wrote: “Soros believes that if the people voted the wrong way, he is entitled to thwart decisions made by them.

“Soros does not believe in the legitimacy of borders nor in the authority of national electorates. Consequently, he feels entitled to influence and if possible direct the political destiny of societies all over the world,” the sociologist said, writing in the Daily Telegraph.
