The Guardian’s editorial from this weekend has claimed that the “bulwark” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is “awful” for trying to control his country’s borders and maintain some level of control over the migrant crisis.
The left-wing British newspaper wrote in a scathing editorial that has now found its way into the Hungarian press, that Orban has “set himself up as a bulwark against a generous-spirited, pan-European approach” to the crisis.
However those familiar with more of the situation than just a picture of a dead child washed up on the beaches of Turkey will be aware that most experts in the matter realise that over 90 per cent of those making their way into Germany, through Europe, are in fact not refugees but economic migrants. Even Chancellor Merkel has today admitted that the admission of 800,000 of these people into Germany will change the very nature of the country.
Photographs and video from Greece, and Hungary too, show that the migrants are not the impoverished asylum seekers the Guardian wishes them to be. Instead, already, fights are breaking out between rival migrant groups, and a pro-EU MEP has claimed that many of the migrants he has seen in his country are wealthier than the rural-dwelling, indigenous population.
Nonetheless, the Guardian has launched this extraordinary attack on Orban, in part due to his claim that the high numbers of Muslim refugees threatening the Christian nature of Europe – a no-brainer, rather than the “hateful statements” the Guardian claimed they were.
“[R]ecent days have also seen volunteers distributing aid in Budapest,” the Guardian reads, making no mention of the fact that aid that was being handed out was being routinely thrown away onto train tracks. This included food and water. Migrants have also been seen attacking the police services and volunteers in Hungary.
In a seemingly contradictory manner, the paper notes: “Although Orbánite anti-migrant policies are especially extreme, some of his positions enjoy support among other central European governments. Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia have sided with Hungary in rejecting an EU plan for migrant quotas, currently promoted by Germany, France and Italy.”
Interesting, isn’t it? Less well off nations are rejecting the plans of the big-dog EU bully-boys, but they’re the “extreme” ones.
The opinion piece ends with a call for the centralised, undemocratic EU to “hold [Orban] to account” – perhaps a veiled way of urging the bureaucrats in Brussels to attempt to depose him, the same way they did in Italy, Greece, and even the Ukraine:
“…both the language he uses and the decisions he takes run counter to the very spirit of Europe. EU institutions have failed in the past to hold him accountable for trampling on Europe’s values – now is the time to do so.”
If there was ever a reason to oppose the “spirit of Europe” and by that, the Guardian means “the United States of Europe” – this is it.
Neither Britain nor any of our European neighbours will be able to culturally or financially cope with one of the largest migrations in modern human history. But because we live in the real world, and not some fantasy land-of-plenty where money falls of trees and infrastructure is limitless, according to the Guardian, we are a “disgrace”.
