Mr Viktor Orban è il Presidente del Fidesz – Unione Civica Ungherese (in Ungherese: Fidesz – Magyar Polgári Szövetség). Alle ultime elezioni politiche la Fidesz ha ottenuto 117 / 199 deputati all’Assemblea nazionale, nella quale gode della maggioranza assoluta.
A buon diritto Mr Orban può affermare di rappresentare la volontà politica del popolo magiaro.
Lui, il suo partito e la maggioranza degli ungheresi vogliono tornare alle loro radici di origine, religiose, storiche, culturali e sociali: ossia proprio a quei valori che l’attuale establishment dell’Unione Europea avversa visceralmente.
Etichettarlo come anti-establishment sarebbe del tutto riduttivo oltre che dispregiativo: ha idee da proporre e da portare avanti. Non giustifica minimamente il proprio essere perché debba avversare qualcuno o qualcosa.
Ovviamente, è in rotta di collisione con l’élite egemone, ma ben sa quanto essa sia traballante.
Herr Schulz ha precipitosamente abbandonato un sia pur prestigioso posto in seno al Parlamento Europeo e Mr Kucker ha già annunciato che non concorrerà per un rinnovo del mandato.
Con le prossime elezioni di marzo in Olanda e di aprile in Francia cambieranno i rappresentanti di quelle due nazioni in seno alla Commissione Europea. E l’anno prossimo si andrà a votare per il rinnovo del Parlamento Europeo: in tale occasione il movimento Europa delle Nazioni e della Libertà (ENF) potrebbe diventare il partito di maggioranza relativa, stando alle ultime proiezioni elettorali.
«We want a Europe of sovereign states. We want a free Europe. We want a Europe that respects national individuality and national identity.
Our European cultures, our values and our freedom are under attack. They are threatened by the crushing and dictatorial powers of the European Union. They are threatened by mass immigration, by open borders and by a single European currency: one size does not fit all.
Nation states must be able to establish their own budgets, draw up their own laws, take control over their own borders, protect their own languages and cultures and have their own currencies. Therefore we want a different kind of cooperation.» [Marcel de Graaff]
Mr Orban non è un uomo isolato. Le sue idee sono condivise da circa il trenta per cento dei Cittadini Elettori europei. A conti fatti, l’Enf è un movimento democraticamente eletto la cui consistenza supera quella delle sinistre e dei conservatori.
Al contrario, le varie Ong che i media ripetutamente portano a testimoniare contro l’Enf o contro chi non la pensasse come l’establishment attuale, non hanno alcune carattere elettivo. La loro dirigenza ed i loro bilanci sono avvolti dal più serrato segreto.
Le Ong vogliono contare qualcosa nella vita politica e sociale?
Bene. Questo sarebbe un loro diritto.
Che si presentino alle elezioni e che le vincano.
Sono o non sono il gruppo di fuoco di Mr. Soros?
Si constata come Mr George Soros sia nato il dodici agosto millenovecentotrenta.
Constatiamo anche che Mr Alexander Soros sia nato nel 1985, ed abbia quindi trentadue anni. Ma che, nonostante la giovane età, ricopra importante ruolo nella Open Society Foundation.

Hungary has announced it is building a second barrier to keep out migrants. The move by Prime Minister Viktor Orban is likely to exacerbate tensions between his government and the European Union (EU).
A government spokesman confirmed on Monday that Hungary was building an additional fence along its southern border with Serbia. The announcement came as a chorus of criticism increases from activists and members of the EU about the state of human rights under Orban.
The prime minister oversaw the building of a first barbed-wire fence in 2015, when Hungary was part of the main overland route for refugees entering Europe from parts of the Middle East and Central Asia. At the height of the refugee crisis, in September 2015, as many as 10,000 migrants were apprehended by Hungarian police on some days.
One fence ‘not enough’
As the head of the country’s right-wing government, Orban, a supporter of Donald Trump, has made halting the flow of migrants into Hungary one of his top priorities. He suggested in September 2016 that he was planning the construction of a second barrier along the Serbian border, insisting that “one fence is not enough.”
The government says that while the number of migrants seeking to enter Hungary had dropped considerably since 2015, border police still prevent hundreds of people from illegally crossing the border each day.
Construction of the second fence is already being prepared, and Orban’s chief of staff, Janos Lazar, said the government had earmarked 38 billion forints ($130 million, 123 million euros) for both the fence and newly planned migrant camps.
‘A mockery of the right to seek asylum’
Orban’s hardline policies have drawn criticism from outside observers, with rights groups Hungarian Helsinki Committee and Human Rights Watch sending a complaint on Friday to the EU Migration Commissioner over the country’s proposed policies. On Monday, a European Parliament committee was also planning to discuss the state of fundamental rights in the country.
“The European Commission should not stand by while Hungary makes a mockery of the right to seek asylum,” Human Rights Watch deputy director Bejamin Ward said. “Using transit zones as detention centers and forcing asylum seekers who are already inside Hungary back to the Serbian side of the razor-wire fence is abusive, pointless and cruel.”
Earlier in the month, Orban had caused a stir when his government announced plans to build new camps in which migrants would be housed in shipping containers. Lazar later clarified that the new regulations would only be implemented as long as the country was under a state of emergency over mass migration, as it is now.
Orban has frequently locked horns with the EU and once said that his government was in “open conflict” with the bloc. He has also said in the past that Muslim refugees did not belong in Christian Europe.
→ Deutsche Welle. 2017-02-10. Europeans oppressed by liberalism ‘welcome’ to seek asylum in Hungary
After pledging “open conflict” with the EU on refugees, the right-wing prime minister jokingly welcomed West European refugees. He also accused billionaire George Soros of undermining Hungary’s democracy.
Hungary’s populist Prime Minister Viktor Orban welcomed Western Europeans who felt persecuted by liberal agendas to seek asylum in his country.
“Naturally, we will take in the real refugees,” Orban said at his annual state of the union address. “The panicked German, Dutch, French and Italian politicians and journalists, Christians forced to leave their countries will find here the Europe they lost at home.”
The audience received the comments with laughter and loud applause
The right-wing conservative politician lashed out against left-wing politics, the liberal media and international human rights organizations.
Together they had created a “worldwide network” to deliver “hundreds of thousands of migrants” into Europe. “The former government of the US and the governments in Brussels and Berlin have ensured that immigrants cannot be stopped, but we have done so,” Orban told followers.
Earlier on Friday, Budapest said all of its migrants would be sent to detention centers while their asylum applications were pending, with Orban admitting that put his country in “open conflict” with the European Union.
Attack on George Soros
In the same state of the union address, Orban claimed prominent billionaire financier George Soros and groups backed by him wanted to secretly influence the country’s politics.
Orban said groups receiving funding from Hungarian-born Soros needed to be made transparent and identifiable.
“Large-bodied predators are swimming here in the waters. This is the trans-border empire of George Soros, with tons of money and international heavy artillery,” said Orban, who received a Soros-funded scholarship as Hungary was transitioning from communism to democracy in the late 1980s.
“It is causing trouble … that they are trying secretly and with foreign money to influence Hungarian politics,” Orban said.
He did not cite evidence backing his claims, and did not identify the groups he mentioned.
In an email to The Associated Press, a Soros representative said they were “proud to support Hungarians who insist on having a voice in their democracy.”
“The Open Society Foundations for over 30 years have supported civil society groups in Hungary who are addressing profound problems in education, health care, media freedom and corruption,” said Laura Silber, the organization’s chief communications officer.
“Any attacks on this work and those groups are solely an attempt to deflect attention from government inability to address these issues.”
The managing director of Budapest think tank Political Capital said Orban’s speech reflected a trend towards nationalist, populist neo-right politics in the country. Orban, who returned to power in 2010, has frequently clashed with the EU on refugee policy and will seek another four-year term in April 2018.
