Skip to comments.Orbán: Europe Locked in ‘Culture War’, But ‘Cultural Peace’ Reigns in Hungary
Posted on 10/08/2018 1:29:21 PM PDT by aquila48
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said that the culture war is not being fought on Hungary, but it being fought in Europe which is succumbing to a creeping cultural surrender.
Addressing the audience at a ceremony to celebrate the revamp of the Budai Vigadó, which houses the countrys heritage museum, Prime Minister Orbán remarked that though he hear[d] that theres a culture war going on in Hungary, he believes the central European country is rather existing in a state of culture peace.
The Hungarian leader warned of a creeping pan-European cultural self-renunciation, and argued that if the continents cultural foundations disappeared, Europe would collapse like a house of cards.
And while Europeans and Hungarians respect other cultures, he vowed that no-one can force us to take this as the relinquishment of our own culture and submission to another culture.
So well stand up and declare who we are and our beliefs about God, the homeland, and family, and the impact Hungarians believe this has on European life, he added.
The popular conservative statesman, who won his third consecutive term in office in April with a parliamentary supermajority, pledged earlier in the year to enact a major family policy action plan to make the country family-friendly and support Hungarians to have children rather than follow the lead of Western European nations that have welcomed mass migration to solve the supposed demographic time bomb of an ageing Europe.

God Bless Hungary!
I love my Hungarian brothers and sisters!
And God Bless Prime Minister Viktor Orbán !
My wife and I visited Hungary just after the demise of the Soviet empire. It was clear even then that the Hungarians had trod a different more independent path than the other eastern European countries. They were openly disdainful of the Russians and their neighbors in conversations we had. Perhaps it is their language which is unique and related only distantly to Estonian and Finnish. And they are proud of their uniqueness and want to protect it. One has to respect that.
“Our culture shows us who we were and who we are, the Prime Minister said, referring to strength which forges the inhabitants of a country into a nation, and the members of a nation into a community. He said that these must be the foundations for the national curriculum currently in preparation, and also the entire Hungarian school system.”
He understands the importance of teaching kids in school to learn and respect their own culture.
We used to do that, too, and our country was much more unified. Today instead the multicults have taken over our schools and their main goal is to trash our culture.
No wonder we are so divided!
I believe the world would be a substantially lesser place without the various European cultures. Further, muslims will never integrate into those cultures, which will ultimately be turned into the same sh#tholes as the muslim left.
Someone tell me what is wrong with having a strong, cohesive culture?
Angela Merkel & her like-minded ilk are traitors to their respective countries.
West-Europeans have been known to migrate to Eastern Europe.
Betting that there have been no mass murders by muzzies in Hungary.
Saved western civilization 500 years ago
Saving it today
The more things change....
Or an sounds great... but Oban tastes AMAZING!
I’ve been to Budapescht (as they call it). It is FAR from a lily-white city, lots of minorities, yet still one culture.
Why, because the minorities there are there LEGALLY. There is no entity in government trying to bring down their culture, as is the case in the US, Canada, and Western Europe.
