Hungarian PM: European Leaders Have ‘Opened the Way to the Decline of Christian Culture’

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, during his 20th annual state of the nation speech on Sunday, said that “Christianity is Europe’s last hope.” He added that European leaders have “opened the way to to the decline of Christian culture and the advance of Islam.”

Orban also stated that Hungary will continue to oppose efforts by the European Union and (to a lesser degree) the United Nations to encourage mass migration from the Middle East and Africa.

That’s all controversial enough in today’s climate, but Orban wasn’t done yet. He also described Europe as being steadily conquered by migrants. “Born Germans,” he said, “are being forced back from most large German cities, as migrants always occupy cities first.”

He concluded that, because of the failed policies of Brussels, Berlin, and Paris, “Islam” will “knock on Central Europe’s door” from two directions: from the south and from the west.

Although very popular in his own country, other European politicians — and especially the official (but unelected) leaders of the EU — detest, distrust, and even fear Orban. The reason is obvious: Orban has no patience whatsoever for globalism, multiculturalism, and political correctness.

Americans would probably be inclined to call Orban “the Hungarian Trump,” but he’s nothing of the sort. Orban is the original, Trump is at best (or worst, depending on your perspective) a mere imitation. And a weak one at that. After all, although he’s not exactly in favor of unlimited migration, Trump has never made statements such as this: “The main question over the next few decades is this: Will Europe remain the continent of the Europeans?” Orban has long spoken in this manner.
