Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán issued a startling denunciation of the US ruling Democrats in a speech in Texas, telling US conservatives that they “hate and slander you and the America you represent”.
Prime Minister Viktor Urban Tabuk To the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas, was conducted in the shadow of something of a cloud, as the Hungarian leader came under constant attack from the establishment media. July letter In it he said that Hungarians did not wish to follow the immigration policies of “post-Western” liberal governments because they “did not want to become mixed-race people”.
These comments were strongly emphasized by media outlets such as the BBC in coverage From the CPAC speech – the fact that Orbán later clarified that the basis of his position on immigration is “not biological…it is not a racial issue, it is a cultural issue” and that “it is beyond the distance for any political issue to be approached on a biological basis” – but it seemed that He quickly managed to capture the attention of his American audience.
“It is so wonderful to be here in Texas, the great Lone Star State of the USA. If I am correct, the Lone Star State means that independence, freedom and sovereignty are the most cherished values in this part of America… My country, Hungary, is Lone Star State of Europe, started in English, and won cheers.
He added that, as an “old anti-communist freedom fighter, who grew up under communist rule,” he gave a speech in “the land of freedom, where the spirit of freedom shines brighter than anywhere else on earth.” Something he “didn’t dare dream of” in his youth – but he went on to criticize the modern Joe Biden administration and the Democratic Party in no uncertain terms.
Prime Minister Orban: “We totally agree on the issue of anti-Semitism and racism. What the Austrian chancellor thinks, I think.” “A biological approach is not possible, and what is possible is a cultural approach,” he added in politics.

Paying lip service to his government’s “respect for the United States government” and his team’s status as the country’s “guests”, the Hungarian statesman nonetheless stressed that “there is another side of the coin” and that the Biden administration “has put Europe and especially Brussels under ideological pressure.”
“This is not good for us. It is not good for us,” he said, claiming that in previous years, the administration of former President Biden, Barack Obama, had gone too far.[try] to force us to change main law [constitution] Hungary, deleting Christian and national values from it.”
“Did you get it? The leading power of the free world wanted to force us to change our constitution In accordance with a liberal, globalist conception,” he claimed, saying that as a result of his government’s resistance to these efforts, “we are not the favorites of American Democrats.”
“They didn’t want me here, and they did their best to drive a wedge between us. They hate me and defame me and my country because they hate you and slander you and the America you stand for,” he declared—a startling attack, considering Hungary’s standing as a US NATO ally, An indication of the extent of the irreversible collapse. The Hungarian government is considering its diplomatic relationship with the capital
Donald Trump, from Urban Met earlier in the weekThe Hungarian, by contrast, received warm words, saying he was “grateful” that the former president supported him during the last elections in his country.

Orbán suggested that the Biden administration tried to put pressure on Hungary in the same way that the Obama administration did, indicating his country’s opposition to global minimum taxes – Hungary is a low tax economy, with a flat personal income tax of 15 percent and a flat corporate income tax of 9 Percent – The reason was that DC recently terminated a tax treaty with Budapest.
“It has been good for US investors. There are 1,700 US companies operating in Hungary,” he said, speculating that the move was the “revenge of the left” to test the global minimum tax initiative, noting that “the US Treasury somehow forgot that it had [tax] Treaty with Russia. But not with Hungary anymore. Funny, isn’t it? “
He also touched on the Russian invasion of Ukraine, an issue on which his views may be less popular with some American conservatives, declaring “full solidarity” with Ukrainians, noting that his country of 10 million has taken in nearly a million Ukrainian refugees – but he expresses He expressed his disagreement with what he described as the strategy of globalization leaders [which] It escalates and prolongs war and reduces the chances of peace.”
Without US-Russian talks there will be no peace in Ukraine. “More and more people are going to die and suffer, and our economies are on the verge of collapse,” he said. It is your sovereign decision. However, I can tell you one thing: only strong leaders can make peace.”
We in the Ukrainian neighborhood urgently need strong leaders, able to negotiate a peace agreement. Mayday, mayday! Help us please! He concluded that he was indicating that he did not believe the current president fit that description.
Orbán hailed the victory over “the left at home, the international left everywhere, the Brussels bureaucrats, the Soros empire with all its money, the major international media and, ultimately, even the Ukrainian president” https://t.co/5qQQZZ5QZ7

The rest of Orbán’s speech focused on political and social issues stretching across the Atlantic and the lessons he believed American conservatives could learn from his country, joked in the Trumpian style tested by Hungarian conservatives.[s]So much winning that we’re just scratching our heads.”
Politics, my friends, is not enough – this war is a culture war. We have to revitalize our churches, families, universities, and community institutions,” he said, describing his country as an “old nation, proud, yet the size of David standing alone against Woke Globalist Goliath” who would benefit greatly from the “solidarity of American conservatives.”
Regarding illegal immigration, he mentioned how during “the Great Migration Crisis of 2015, 400,000 illegal immigrants came to our borders…nearly three times what Genghis Khan was doing when he invaded Europe” – but his government built a wall and ” Managed to reduce illegal immigration to zero” despite the protests of “eggheads from the European Union”.
He also touched on leftist ideology against the traditional family, noting that today’s radical left means that “Western families are the places where the persecution of the so-called patriarchy begins.”
He warned that “if traditional families disappear, there is nothing that can save the West from collapsing,” following the public on his government’s extensive family support policies – criticized by some market right-wingers as socialist – including family tax breaks and student loan cancellations after the birth of A third child, and a woman’s exemption from personal income tax for life after the birth of the fourth child.
“[I]If you are not married yet, you should immediately find a Hungarian wife! “Not a bad start,” he said sarcastically, claiming that his policies saw marriages and abortions halved in a decade — “not a bad start.”
Gender ideology has also been addressed, particularly in schools, with Orbán insisting that a border wall to protect the nation and a “financial wall” to protect families should be supplemented by a “legal wall around our children to protect them” from the far left. memorization;
“They believe that parents should follow the progressive way of raising children. If they refuse to do so, they should be forced by the state. We Hungarians know this old communist ploy and we reject it!” he declared, insisting that “we do not need more races; we need To more guards. Fewer drag queens and more Chuck Norris.”
The ideological wars of the 20th century – against the totalitarian forces of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union – were horrific, but the democratic West rallied and defeated them. He concluded that the West is now at war with itself. But we have a different future in mind. All globalists can go to hell; I came to Texas! “
