A wave of nationalism -- make that white nationalism -- and populism continues to roll over eastern Europe, making the elites of the European Union and western Europe (Hello! Angela Merkel) nervous. The latest victory for the forces of ethnic solidarity and anti-Islamization came on the weekend, when Hungary's conservative-populist prime minister, Viktor Orbán, won a third term in office in a landslide. The farther-right Jobbik party finished second.
Mr Orbán's party, Fidesz, won not just a decisive majority but (along with some smaller allies) an outright super-majority, making possible changes to Hungary's constitution. During the campaign, Mr Orbán promised to push through legislation described by his government as the "Stop (((Soros))) package". "The reason we submitted this package before the elections," he told the meeja today, "is in order to allow the Hungarian voters to cast their vote knowing our intention on this. This has happened and we believe we are mandated by this election to pass this law."
Among other things, the proposed laws would require NGOs that work on migration-related issues to register with the interior ministry. They could be rejected on a national security basis after vetting by security agencies. Any foreign funding for migration-related activities would be subjected to a 25% tax.
Mr Orbán ran his campaign on the single issue of migration, and blamed a network of the political opposition, NGOs and critical media of being part of a plot orchestrated by the Hungarian-American billionaire (((George Soros))) to send millions of non-Christian (read: Muslim) "refugees" and asylum-seekers to Hungary.
Prime Minister Orbán has been one of the most determined foes of the compulsory migrant quota regime which the European Union is trying to shove down the throats (or some such orifice) of Europeans, at the behest of liberals and anti-Christian NGOs. Their pro-Muslim campaigns have become the focal point for an increasingly influential eurosceptic, anti-mass migration alliance within the EU, centred on the Visegrád Four countries -- the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary.
The top politicians and bureaucrats of the European Union, along with the (((controlled media))), have their hair on fire over Mr Orbán's win. One newspaper, however, will not be joining the rending of garments and nashing of teeth. That would be the 80-year-old Magyar Nemzet and its sister station Lanchid Radio, which are closing immediately due to financial problems.
Viktor Orbán is best known on this side of the Atlantic for his robust defence of Christian Europe against the tsunami of Muslim migrants washing over the continent. Unlike President Trump, he succeeded in getting a wall build along the southern border of his country. The erection of the wall and strengthening of border security cut illegal immigration by over 99%, while western European countries like Germany and Sweden put the welcome mat out for all the flotsam and jetsam of the Middle East and Africa with disastrous results.
The Orbán viktory (geddit?) should serve as confirmation and encouragement to POTUS and all others campaigning for an end to the Islamization of the West. A tip of Walt's hat to Mr Orbán and a thumb of Walt's nose to (((George Soros))).
