Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán believes the globalist establishment will not respond to their defeats in 2016 by reexamining their policies, but by encouraging a wave of mass migration which will “crush the will of the people” and replace Europe’s existing populations.
“[T]he lords of globalist politics are not searching for the fault within themselves” after their defeats in the Brexit referendum and the U.S. presidential election, he claims, “but are instead blaming the people and nations”.
“They have decided they will not surrender their positions, but will crush any will of the people that opposes the open society and liberal governance. They have declared that if elections in a certain country are not won by their ideological partners, by the liberals, then in that country democracy no longer exists. They have declared that the people constitute a danger to democracy.”
Orbán believes that politicians wedded to the no borders, multicultural “open society” – a reference to the Open Society Foundations funded by George Soros, the billionaire financier whom the Hungarian authorities regard as a malign influence – will respond to reverses at the ballot box by attempting to undermine Europe’s electorates through mass migration.
“[I]f the poor, slowly-awakening citizens do after all dig in their heels, they’ll be flooded with a few million migrants: ‘If these fuddy-duddies in Europe, who are unwilling or unable to shake free of their Christian roots and patriotic feelings, won’t take heed, then let’s dig deeper and replace the subsoil of European life. Let masses of people from different religious backgrounds – who have been raised with different morals and different traditions, and who have no idea about Europe – come and teach us a lesson’.
“This is how the world’s most bizarre coalition of people smugglers, human rights activists and leading European politicians was created, with the aim of systematically bringing millions of migrants into Europe. Where will all this lead?”
According to Orbán, the “open society” advocates want to create a system in which “true power, decisions and influence must be put in the hands of people who are part of the global network, media gurus, unelected international organisations and their local offices”.
In terms of economics and national identity, he describes the open society as a place where “people, ethnic groups and cultures are stamped out to size like hamburgers, so that they can be turned into merchandise [and] countries are transformed into railway stations, with everyone being able to move in and out”.
The Fidesz leader’s overall message with respect to the globalist worldview seemed to recall Bertolt Brecht’s sardonic comments after the 1953 uprising in East Germany: “Would it not be easier for the government to dissolve the people and elect another?”
Breitbart London previously reported Orbán‘s tongue-in-cheek offer to welcome “true refugees” from Western Europe, seeking “the Europe they have lost in their homelands”. The central European leader has been the continent’s most outspoken critic of mass migration, and has been a thorn in the side of the European Union. Mr. Orban defied other European leaders in 2015 when he built a border wall to stem the migrant crisis, reducing the daily flow of illegals from some 10,000 to just dozens.
