It is “no coincidence” that thousands of people are “transported into Europe” on a daily basis, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán argued at a conference yesterday. Those behind the phenomenon are consciously intending to establish a left-wing “mental structure” with the aim of “putting nation states in Europe into brackets”, he insisted, adding that “we have to turn to the people in the face of this conspiracy, this betrayal”.
Europe has been betrayed and if we fail to stand up for it, Europe will be taken away from us, he said. If we do not take a stance for Europe, the continent will no longer be the Europe of citizens living here but “will fulfill the lunatic dreams of a few activist, unelected leaders who move around large sums of money and think beyond the framework of nation states in the upcoming period”, he said at the conference, organised by three pro-government civil society groups.
The Prime Minister argued that like-minded Europeans “must turn to democracy and the people” in the face of this “conspiracy and betrayal” and launch a pan-European debate on the matter with the aim of establishing a strong, Christian Europe.
