Orbán: Hungary wont be locked out of its own country
19. March 2016 - by BT in Politics
Hungary will not allow others to dictate who we must admit into our houses and home country, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in front of Budapests National Museum on Tuesday at a state commemoration of Hungarys anti-Habsburg revolution of 1848/49. He said the first step towards preventing mass migration into Europe is stopping Brussels. Hungary would not allow Brussels to place itself above the law.
Orbán described the European Unions refugee policy as one that would first decide who Hungary has to admit, then force the state to serve foreigners in our own homeland after which we find ourselves locked out of our own country. We will not allow [Brussels] to force onto us the fruits of its cosmopolitan migration policy. We are not going to import crime, terrorism, homophobia or anti-Semitism that sets synagogues on fire … There will not be any gangs hunting our wives and daughters.
He reiterated that Hungary rejects the European Unions refugee resettlement scheme, and would not give in to blackmail or threats from Brussels. It is time to sound the alarm bells and gather allies against the migrant quota scheme, the prime minister said. We call on Hungarian citizens, regardless of party preference, and European nations to unite against refugee relocation.
Orbán said mass migration is presented as a humanitarian issue but its real nature is invasive. He said the discussions on migrant relocation would begin with talks on resettling a couple of hundred or a thousand people, but no European leader would be willing to swear today that there would not be a need later to resettle tens or hundreds of thousands. Herds of incurable human rights warriors felt an insurmountable urge to lecture Hungary on the refugee crisis.
He said Hungary has a history of taking in people from different cultures. Anyone who had arrived in Hungary as a new family member, ally or refugee was taken in and found a new home. People who attempted to force their way into the country or came with the intention to change it, however, were met with resistance.
A hundred-and-sixty-eight years after European peoples fought for their freedom, Europe, our shared home, was not free. Freedom begins with speaking the truth but today we are not allowed to speak the truth in Europe. Even if it is made of silk, a muzzle is still a muzzle We are not allowed to say that Europe was threatened by mass migration or that migration brings with it crime and terrorism to the continent. Further, Europeans were not allowed to say that the migrant inflow is no accident but a pre-planned, controlled operation.
Europeans are not allowed to say that Brussels is slowly eating away at our sovereignty and planning a United States of Europe, which it does not have a mandate to do, Orbán said. Life in todays Hungary was shaped by the intellectual heirs of the revolutions of 1848 and 1956. The nations political, economic and intellectual life is still governed by the heartbeat of revolution. The revolution of 1848/49 was Hungarian to the core by being inspiring, sober, glorious but moderate at the same time.
He praised the citizens, soldiers, lawyers, writers, doctors, farmers and patriotic workers who participated in the revolution. Orbán greeted Polish citizens who had travelled to Budapest to take part in the commemorations. Just as we have over the course of our shared history, we [Hungarians] stand by you once again in the fight for your countrys freedom and independence, he told them.
More respect to Poland! is our joint message for Brussels. The book of fate says that the concealed and faceless powers of the world will do away with everything that is unique, exceptional, ancient and national. If we accept this … we will be swallowed up by the United States of Europe.
The prime minister said Hungarys task is to defeat, rewrite and change the fate that has been written for us.
Government enemy of people
Co-leader of the opposition Dialogue for Hungary party Gergely Karácsony on Tuesday accused the government of opposing the people since it had dismantled the third republic and ruined everything built ever since the 1989-90 change in political system. Karácsony said at a commemoration of the 1848-49 revolution in City Park that a stronger republic needs to be built that does not serve the elite but rather all citizens. He said the republic was not the business of political parties and especially not of those parties which have left the third republic at a loss. Rather it was the business of the people.
Backs turned to Orbán
A group of demonstrators gathered at Kalvin tér near the National Museum on Tuesday to protest against the government during Prime Minister Viktor Orbáns speech to mark the anniversary of Hungarys anti-Habsburg revolution of 1848/49. Demonstrators at the event organised by the Civil Society for a Democratic Hungary turned their backs to the garden of the National Museum while Orbán was speaking. Zoltán Büki, head of the Civil Society for a Democratic Hungary, said he had chosen this form of protest because Orbán turned his back on the Hungarian people long ago. Many in the crowd were yelling, whistling or blowing horns, despite having been asked by Büki to protest in silence. The demonstrators were handed red cards to hold up when Orbán finished speaking, to show the soccer fan that the people have had enough of him, Büki said.
If you want to be on this right wing, monarchy, paleolibertarianism and nationalism ping list, but are not, please let me know. If you are on it and want to be off, also let me know. This ping list is not used for Catholic-Protestant debates; all confessions are welcome.
Good for Hungary. Why anyone would want to import over a million inbred seventh century savages is beyond me.
God protect this good man who is putting his own countrymen and women first...
Please add me to your ping list. Thank you.

So does Zoltan Buki have ties to Gyorgy Schwartz?
If Europe is to survive, the European Union needs to be disbanded. It has gone too far to the point of micromanaging what should be local governance. It may well lead to another European war where Brussels uses brute force to force its will on states that will not go along.
Maybe that comes from having only recently emerged from decades of oppression and domination.
Isn’t this what we have to look forward to if Heidi Cruz and Ted as President can promote a North American Union which she studied and approved for the CFR?
Or, what about a Union of the Americas?
That is not Orban’s entire speech, though it is the key section on the issue of Europes Islamic immigration/migration/invasion. The whole speech is well worth reading for the historical perspective, and is in the thread I posted Sunday regarding this excellent speech:
Orbans Historical Speech Puts Hungary on a War Footing (speaks truth about Muslim immigration)
The full transcript is in post #5.
Thank you; I was looking for an English transcript and missed it.
Sorry for inadvertently competing with your post.
Exactly right; East Europe has most political instincts in the right place.
Not a problem! I’m glad to see this speech get as much exposure as it can, by any way possible. Just trying to fill in the gaps.
WOW!!, so let it be done!
We only have to look at the EU to see how it plays out in the real world.
He is channelling the spirit of Janos Hunyadi. Good for him.
leave me alone
Sovereignty is not easily won, but it is easily lost. Countries who do not protect it, lose it. Hungary knows this. Apparently, Germany does not (and many others)
