Credit where credit is due. What follows are key quotes from a speech given recently by the prime minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, as reported by Jack Montgomery on Breitbart News.
In a speech on Hungary's National Day, March 15th, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán issued a stark warning to the peoples of Europe, telling them that "Europe is now under invasion", and that "the empire of (((George Soros)))" is seeking to "break Hungary" for standing in its way.
"The situation, dear friends, is that there are those who want to take our country from us," he said. "Not with the stroke of a pen, as happened one hundred years ago at Trianon; now they want us to voluntarily hand our country over to others, over a period of a few decades. They want us to hand it over to foreigners coming from other continents, who do not speak our language, and who do not respect our culture, our laws or our way of life: people who want to replace what is ours with what is theirs.
"What they want is that henceforward it will increasingly not be we and our descendants who live here, but others. There is no exaggeration in what I have just said. Day by day we see the great European countries and nations losing their countries: little by little, from district to district and from city to city. The situation is that those who do not halt immigration at their borders are lost: slowly but surely they are consumed.
"External forces and international powers want to force all this upon us, with the help of their allies here in our country. And they see our upcoming election as a good opportunity for this. National and globalist forces have never squared up to each other so openly. We, the millions with national feelings, are on one side; the elite 'citizens of the world' are on the other....
"We who believe in nation-states, the defence of borders, the family and the value of work are on one side, and opposing us are those who want open society, a world without borders or nations, new forms of family, devalued work and cheap workers -- all ruled over by an army of shadowy and unaccountable bureaucrats. On one side, national and democratic forces; and on the other side, supranational and anti-democratic forces."
Prime Minister Orbán was clear that, in his view, the consequences for Europe of acquiescing to the European Union implementing what his government has described as the "Soros Plan" would be dire: "This is our homeland, this is our life, and we have no other."
He declared that his party, Fidesz, would "fight for it to the end and never surrender." But he acknowledged the strength of the forces arrayed against it, which seek to "break Hungary, which stands in the path of immigrants; and settle thousands, then tens upon tens of thousands of immigrants in Hungary within a few years.
"Europe is now under invasion," he added. "The western half of Europe looks at all this with its hands raised in surrender. Those who raise their hands have laid down their weapons, and will never again decide their own fate. The history of the defeated will later be written by others. The young of Western Europe will see this when they become minorities in their own countries, and they have lost the only place in the world that could be called home."
Finally, he warned that "Forces are appearing, the like of which the world has not seen for a long time. In Africa, there will be ten times as many young people as in Europe. If Europe does nothing they will kick down the door on us. Brussels is not defending Europe and it is not halting immigration, but wants to support it and organize it. It wants to dilute the population of Europe and to replace it, to cast aside our culture, our way of life and everything which separates and distinguishes us Europeans from the other peoples of the world.
"It will be small consolation," Mr Orbán concluded, "that the peoples of Europe will not forgive those leaders who completely changed Europe without first asking its people."
