Hungary, Budapest – As every October 23, Hungary celebrates its fight against sovietism and for its freedom. A national holiday with a particularly political connotation. On this occasion, Viktor Orbán made strong statements such as Hungary’s identity is threatened again, this time by globalism and financial speculators.
“Freedom is never offered to us for free, we must always fight for it,” Viktor Orbán said at the beginning of his speech entitled “If freedom is lost, if national independence is lost, then we too will be lost.”
After some proper historical reminders and calls for patriotism, celebration of the memory of the braves and of Hungarian honor, the Conservative Prime Minister quickly politicized his speech. And it was first towards the Western Europeans and Brussels that his gaze fell. “If the Westerners admired the Hungarian revolution of ’56, they did not understand it, they did not understand what forces work inside us […]. They did not understand that we are fighting because we value our own culture and way of life and that we do not want to be dissolved into the melting pot of anyone, we want to be respected as we are, we have defended the borders of Europe for 1,000 years and we fought for our national independence […]. They do not understand us in Brussels today neither, because already back at this time they did not understand us.”
Viktor Orbán then warned the audience of the danger that Hungary is facing. And the strong man of Budapest did not mention migrants as the main threat; but the source, among others, of this “migratory invasion”.
“Commemorations help to deal with the realities of today, and the reality is that thirty years after communism, there is again a global force that would make European nations a standardized cluster. […] We wanted to believe that the communists’ dream of making Homo Sovieticus out of Hungarians could never threaten us again, and today we are witnessing with astonishment the globalist powers trying to force our doors and make us into Homo Bruxellicus.”
“We wanted to believe that we would never have to deal with political, economic and intellectual forces that would cut us off from our national roots. We also wanted to believe that in Europe, terror and violence no longer have a place. It was not the case,” said Viktor Orbán in front of a crowd of sympathizers, present in numbers despite the heavy rain.
“The successes of Europe have blinded her, and she has lost her place on the world stage without even realizing it. She dreamed of a global role, and even today her neighbors do not care about her, while she is even unable to maintain order within herself.”
“Instead of recognizing this, campaigns of vengeance were launched against those who drew attention to the dangers of spiritual decay and nihilism.
Uncompromising have been labeled those for whom Europe needs defensible physical outer borders.
Racists have been called those for whom immigration is a danger to our culture.
Those who spoke in defense of Christendom were accused of discrimination.
Homophobic have been labelled those standing up for the defense of the family.
Nazi have been called those for whom Europe is the alliance of nations.
And finally, one have treated as fanciful those who have taken a different path than the wobbly economic path of Brussels.”
Then, the Hungarian Prime Minister clearly designated those responsible for threatening the culture and the people of Hungary. “It is in the wake of globalization that financial empires have risen, they have no borders, but they have world media, and they have tens of thousands of people bought for their cause. They have no concrete frameworks, but have extensive networks – they are fast, strong, and brutal. This empire of financial speculation has taken Brussels as a hostage, as well as a number of Member States,” continued Viktor Orbán, referring, among other things, to his great declared enemy, the globalist speculator and financier George Soros.
For the Hungarian Prime Minister, it is this financial empire that is responsible for massive immigration. “This empire has imposed new migratory waves, millions of migrants, and new invasions of populations, it is them who have fomented the project of making Europe a mixed part of the world. We are the only ones standing against them. It has come to the point that Central Europe is the last part of Europe without migrants.”
Referring to the many elections held in Europe in 2017 and 2018, including that of Hungary next April, Viktor Orbán considered in his speech that the fate of Europe is now at stake. “It will be decided now if we can bring back the great Europe of before multiculturalism. Sure, reasonable, civic, Christian and free, this is the Europe we want! Many still think today that it is impossible. But let’s remember of 1956.”
Generously applauded, the head of the Hungarian government concluded with a series of ambitious statements designed to motivate his troops in the raging election campaign. “No one can tell us what is impossible, we know that mass migration can be stopped, globalization can be slowed down, we can tame Brussels, we can break the plan of the financial speculator, and we can put on a straitjacket on the project of European federalism, it is enough for us here in Central Europe, Poles, Czechs, Slovaks, Romanians and Hungarians, to unite our forces. It is enough that we discover the strength in our hands, in our heads and in our hearts […] [But] never underestimate the strength of the dark side.”
