BUDAPEST, Hungary, February 18, 2018 – We are living in a day in which most people have a general feeling of hopelessness regarding the future. Under the pall of terrorism and talk of biological, chemical, and nuclear warfare, fear has engulfed our planet.
However, against this pessimistic and fearful backdrop and brushing aside any semblance of political correctness, Hungary’s Prime Minister boldly proclaimed in a national speech that, “Christianity is Europe’s last hope”.
Voters have responded favourably and Orban is a clear leader of all polls.
In a passionate speech, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán addressed his country and the world and warned that European nations which have encouraged migration have now, opened the way to the decline of Christian culture and the advancement of Islam.
Viktor Orban aged 54, stated that his government will reject efforts by the European Union and United Nations to ‘increase migration’ around the world.
Mr Orban claimed Islam would soon “knock on Central Europe’s door” from the west as well as the south.
Orbán started public life as a crusader against communism and attended Oxford University on a Soros scholarship. Soros, who expatriated from Hungary, also funded Orbán’s political organization, the Alliance for Young Democrats.
Although Viktor Orban is popular in Hungary, he is increasingly at battle with mainstream European Union politicians mostly centred on migration, since people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and Africa flooded into Europe in 2015.
Domestically, Orban has successfully reversed an economic slump in Hungary and has controlled its public finances. However, to achieve he has used methods that opposers have labelled authoritarian. However, Eastern leaders, most notably in Poland, have followed his lead.
Today, migration is the dominant theme of the prime minister’s agenda. ‘Absurd as it may sound the danger we face comes from the West, from politicians in Brussels, Berlin and Paris,’ Orban said to loud applause.
At the peak of the migrant crisis, he ordered a double razor wire fence to be built to keep people out of Hungary.
Orban has conflated the issue of immigration with the image of Soros, 87, whose name was used in a tough anti-migrant bill sent to Parliament on Wednesday 14th of February 2018. Soros, for his part, compared Orban unfavourably to both the Nazis and the Communists, saying his rule evoked dark memories from the 1930’s when Hungary was a partner with Nazi Germany.
However, Victor Orban remains firmly committed to his agenda, claiming that Soros and his supports of migration will lose the fight.
‘We don’t think the fight is hopeless, on the contrary, we are winning,’ Orban said. ‘The V4 is firm, Croatia has come around, Austria has turned in the patriotic direction, and in Bavaria, the CSU has created a resistance.’
Mr Orban will seek a third consecutive term in an April election.
