When time permits, we will repost this with some of Orban’s speeches and other Hungarian news items we have translated. A quick observation though. Whenever I see a Hungarian, Polish or Bulgarian news report, its startlingly adult. No attacks or hyperbole. No showmanship. Just good questions about policy and questions generated from the answers. When you get to the end, yo feel like there were adults in the room. Western media has infantilized us all in the past 5 decades. Its like intellectual gladiators in the special olympics. Pro-revolutionary people of influence will be lionized. Counter-revolutionary people of influence will be avoided, but if too influential to avoid, Jordan Peterson a few years ago by way of example, a committee will find the most destructive tactics they can before the fact and attempt to destroy them with anything they can think of, relevant or not.
That is the state of the media in the West. It is indeed enemy propaganda and in no way informative.
Here is one video for the moment that may explain a little of what Tucker Carlson describes in his opener. PM Oran’s views on authoritarianism and communism likely made him the target he is of the ‘Lugenpresse’ or enemy propaganda mass media in the West.
(This article is actually an attack on Orban and the author of an excellent article about Soros, but includes the article its attacking, which is very good!)
I see quite a few artists and intellectuals getting nearer to the end of their lives and looking back on their oeuvre, perceiving that they have been weighed and found wanting. Just moments after their deaths they would be forgotten — even by their biographers. Somehow, I can understand the frustration of these people. They have made bad choices, and now they are facing the consequences. Everybody lives their own life, but what is more important, as philosophers have said, everybody will die their own death.
Presumably, George Soros is struggling with the same feelings. Roughly at the end of his life, he was hit by the truth of the commonplace wisdom, that money does not bring happiness. One cannot take his money with him to the opposite side of the river. The financial security of his family was established long ago, for several generations to come, so only one question remains for him: what will happen to George Soros once he ceases to exist? He is not talented as a writer; his philosophy is confused and inconsistent. He is, however, smart enough to realize he is not a genius. This might be his greatest sorrow.
Standing in the doorway of death, George Soros is carving his own statue. He thinks of himself as a man with a mission. His mission: George Soros, the New Messiah. This mission, however, lacks a transcendent dimension. The god of George Soros is George Soros, embodied and descended to our world in the image of George Soros.
He is moving his chess pieces on a global chessboard. Given that the key to his financial success is playing unfair, it’s no wonder that he also keeps changing the rules in his assumed “world-saving” chess game to his own taste. He is the playmaker, the referee, the striker, and the scorekeeper in one person.
We have seen enough of this type in the history of mankind. Those with enough money and power made themselves dictators; those lacking thereof, servants to the dictators. And all of them, without exception, wanted to reach the throne of eternity by climbing a mountain of the corpses of the victims of their own tyranny.
In today’s world, the path to the throne of Soros leads across our very bodies. Europe has become the gas chamber of George Soros. Toxic gas is flowing out of the capsule of a “multicultural open society,” lethal to the European way of life, and we, the peoples of Europe, are doomed to fight for the last gasps of breathable air by treading on and climbing over one another’s bodies.
Far be it for me to speak for Hungary. But there is a central point that even Mr. Kovatch misses in this ‘dialogue’ with UK’s notorious HARDtalk program.
Hungary’s democratically elected government passed an emergency measures bill in the parliament granting Viktor Orban powers of fiat rule to deal with what was sold as an existential threat to us all at the time. All leftist nations are pounding Hungary for that, while they simultaneously set security forces, armed forces and all branches of police and regulatory enforcement against their own citizens for social distancing violations with exactly ZERO law, acts of parliament or constitutional justifications whatsoever.
In Canada, where locals love to attack Orban with no knowledge of him or his policies other than what the NYT makes up about him, is issuing fines around the one THOUSAND dollar mark for being out with your own children and not even near other people. And there was no legislation passed to justify this whatsoever.
So whatever else one may say about Hungary’s response to this, it is far more democratic than that of it’s critics. Is there even any point in talking about the UK? Well before the Wuhan Flu hit, they were sending police to people’s doors for jocular tweets about men who imagine themselves to be women. I would like to see the legal justification for that which wouldn’t be out of a Fabian Society ops manual.
Many media sites around the world have been quoting Viktor Orban’s statement that “This is an organized invasion”.
Readers of this site may notice that we downplayed that quote as the places and events it had been attributed to, he simply did not state that.
Thanks to CrossWare, the video was found and he did indeed say exactly that. But without context its highly subject to spin and contempt. In this clip. you can see not just the statement, but the evidence for the statement and the circumstances of its being said.
Watch to the end. The pay off is huge.
Town of Röszke, in Hungary, at the border crossing with Serbia
In January 2020 a mob of migrants rushed the border there:
In the Great Migration Crisis of 2015, a huge mob of migrants attacked the border crossing there (“The Battle of Röszke”):
Press conference at Röszke, February 13 2020
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán
Slovakian Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini
Notes from the translator:
This is the original press conference at the border, with official translators translating immediately. Orbán speaks in short sentences to help the translator.
The first part of the video is standard diplomatic chit-chat. First Orbán thanks the Slovakian PM for sending Slovakian police officers to defend the Hungarian border. Then PM Pellegrini thanks the Hungarians for defending the southern border of the EU, thereby defending Slovakia.
Having just listened to the vast majority of this on the treadmill, it is so excellent, (as we have come to expect from PM Orban) that we felt it had to have its own post.
He addresses economic issues, communism, the polarization of nations in the West due to Leftism, Merkel, and all the subjects of interest to our readers, although at 15 minutes from the end, I have not heard him mention islam yet.
But this is really worth our time. No need to watch, do dishes, bike, anything more or less mindless and this is a joyful experience for those looking to hear a rational leader. No rhetoric. Just information. Orban does not even claim to be a better leader than Salvini etc. etc. He just says that because Hungary does not have a proportional representation system, he can govern with less or no compromise to leftists.
Another POWERFUL reason we must not go to Prop Rep, and another data point showing why Trudeau wanted to move us there.
A few days ago we published some select bits from Hungarian PM, Viktor Orban’s as always excellent, annual state of the nation speech.
Only I had made an error in the editing and unwittingly cut out 4 minutes of his speech. So here it is corrected. Please enjoy and spread.
Apologies to all who watched it the first time and missed some of the point of it.
Everytime I watch a Viktor Orban speech, I find it nostalgic. It reminds me of the time that the media and leadership in Canada was run by adults who had a proper responsible grip on how to run a nation state for the benefit of its people.
In these excerpts of yesterday’s State of the Nation speech, PM Orban explains how George Soros has tried to plunder Hungary no less than three times, and how a populist is a politician who promises what the people want and then does not do it. While a leader that promises what the people want and then actually does it is not populist, but simply democratic.
This is the part of his speech on migration and issues of international interest.
Thank you CrossWare for the translation and Gates of Vienna for the edit. It is always such a great pleasure to do Viktor Orban’s speeches.
Johnny U. sent in this report from Hungarian TV:
-migrants by the boatload coming into Italy, to be distributed to other countries
-the Visegrad 4 are refusing all migrants
– uncontrolled immigration proving very dangerous
– Hungary does not agree with EU immigration policies and wants to defend all European borders on dry land and sea
– 8 boats brought 350 migrants to Lesbos
– come especially at night under cover of darkness
