The Prime Minister of the Magyar Republic and a certain American Republican candidate for president share at least two traits – both say exactly what’s on their mind, and neither really give a whit what the politically correct think. Case in point: Prime Minister Viktor Orban just gave his professional opinion on what constitutes “the best” kind of Muslim migrant. Needless to say, pro-migrant advocates are less than thrilled with PM Orban.
As reported by The Saint Louis Post-Dispatch and also Britain’s The Daily Mail, both on Jan.22, 2016, the Hungarian leader plainly stated, “the best migrant is the migrant who does not come. The best number is zero.” Far from done, Orban also made known that his nation had recently exported “hundreds of kilometers” worth of razor wire fencing — many of its elements built by convicts in workshops — to the neighboring nations of Macedonia, Slovenia and Bulgaria.
Not his first official statement that’s resulted in apoplectic leftists, Orban informed the wold where the Magyars stood last September when hundreds of thousands of Middle Eastern and North African Muslims were literally banging at the gates. In an editorial published by the German newspaper Allgemeine Zeitung, Orban penned, “Those arriving have been raised in another religion, and represent a radically different culture. Most of them are not Christians, but Muslims. That is an important question, because Europe and European culture have Christian roots. Or is it not already and in itself alarming that Europe’s Christian culture is barely in a position to uphold Europe’s own Christian values? Is it not worrying in itself that European Christianity is now barely able to keep Europe Christian? There is no alternative, and we have no option but to defend our borders.”
Perhaps the exclamation point at the end of his national policy, as reported by Agence France-Presse via the Breitbart.com news portal last September, the Hungarian Parliament authorized the Prime Minister to call out the Hungarian Defence Force to stem the de facto invasion of their homeland. The Prime Minister has also found himself in the middle of an ecclesiastical row last summer when his name and policies were invoked by of the Diocese of Szeged-Csanád. With his See located in the southeastern part of the country that borders Romania and Serbia, Bishop Kiss-Rigó’s 400,000 strong flock is on the literal front line of the migrant tsunami.
His Excellency left little doubt exactly where he stood on the hundreds of thousands of migrants attempting entry into his country. Perhaps channeling the spirit of legendary Hungarian hero General János Hunyadi, Bishop Kiss-Rigó plainly stated, “They are not refugees. This is an invasion. They come here and shout out ‘Allah is great’. They want to take control.” In regards to his country’s leader, the bishop stated, “I fully agree with him. The Muslim refugees are a threat to Europe’s universal Christian values.”
