Hungary PM Orban Says Immigration a Threat and Must Be Stopped

Reuters, January 12, 2015

Immigration to Europe should be largely halted, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said late on Sunday, demanding a robust EU response to last week’s killings in France.

Orban was speaking after attending a mass rally in Paris to pay tribute to 17 people killed in attacks launched by a trio of Islamist extremists, who were born in France to immigrant families.


“We should not look at economic immigration as if it had any use, because it only brings trouble and threats to European people,” he told state television. “Therefore, immigration must be stopped. That’s the Hungarian stance.”

The only exception, he said, should be for people claiming political asylum.

“Hungary will not become a target destination for immigrants,” he said. “We will not allow it, at least as long as I am prime minister and as long as this government is in power.”


“We do not want to see a significant minority among ourselves that has different cultural characteristics and background. We would like to keep Hungary as Hungary,” he added.

  • Sorry, Vic. But after you did what you did to NPI, I don’t believe you.

      I’m thinking the guy just squared his accounts…

        Obviously referring to Hungary being unreliable allies of Germany in WW2.

          Italians were the worst.

    “We would like to keep Hungary as Hungary.”

    Holy Moly (don’t laugh – it’s the only word I can use on here) – if that’s true, then this is my AmRen article of the week.

    “Immigration to Europe should be largely halted, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said late on Sunday”

    Look for this guy to lose the next election or die in a single car accident on a country road while driving alone.

      With the tribe being the likely culprits.

    The only exception, he said, should be for people claiming political asylum. Only if the asylum seeker is of European descent.

    Go Fidesz!

    • propagandaoftruth

      Yeah – there’s the stab in the back statement. A billion could qualify for asylum as stated likely…

      What a slimer.

      … another set of Magyar politicians who cowered and fled before the scariness that is Richard Spencer.

        He stood up when he needed to.

    A Hungarian guy is sent by his wife to go fetch bread. He gets irritated waiting in line and blurts out his opinions in frustration. “The Velvet Revolution is a sham!!” he declares. Right away two guys in dark over coats walk over to him and one hisses in his ear, “In the Old Days we would have put a gun to your head and Pow! for talking like that…” . Completely shook up, the man steps out of line and hurries home with out the bread. When he walks in the door his wife calls out, “What! No bread again?!?” The man shoots her a worried look and says, “It`s even worse than all that! Now they`ve run out of bullets…”

      Laugh out loud!!

    Orban likely gave NPI the boot to appease the State Dept. Why not, when the “Right Opposition” (it doesn’t even have a recognizable name) in the US is so pathetically weak? You know, respect has to be earned.

  • dd121

    And to our everlasting shame, we didn’t send help to these brave people when they resisted the Soviets.

  • Northern American-Nationalist

    The Overton window shifting towards anti-immigration…(at least in Hungary) brought to you by political pressure from nationalist parties on the mainstream, big tent, generic conservative parties; thank you Jobbik!

  • WR_the_realist

    A few politicians in eastern Europe still have some sense. None in the United States or Canada do.

  • RMThoughts

    Neo cons give us open borders and multi-culturalism, Israel gets a border wall and a ethno State. God bless the Hungarians for using the common sense God gave them.

    “The only exception, he said, should be for people claiming political asylum.”

    Pretty big exception right there. Didn’t Sweden open their doors to all of Syria last year?

    • Le Barbouze

      Not really – E European countries hardly grant asylum and in any case not many Asylum shoppers want to live there.

      • shmo123

        Nonsense. Do you think the denizens of some third world toilet are going to be picky about which European door opens for them? Compared to where most refugees come from, eastern Europe is far more advanced than what they’ll ever hope to build. Granted, the Poles, Czechs, and Hungarians aren’t as wealthy as their cousins in the west, but give’em time. After the destruction wrought by fascists and communists, they’ve come a long way indeed.

        • John Smith

          They were sure picky about being taken to small towns in Sweden.

          • shmo123

            Ingrates. They should be happy with an igloo on the Arctic circle. I’m sure many will bide their time and wait until citizenship, or whatever rule will allow them to move to another EU country–in all probability doing it on the backs of the Swedish taxpayers–the same taxpayers who have no say at all in the matter.

        • Le Barbouze

          But they are being ‘picky’…most don’t even want to stay in Italy. They think they’ve a right to go where they want…and it isn’t E Europe(not that they’re wanted there)

        • Le Barbouze

          Besides, you’re a Yank aren’t you…what would you know?

      • John Smith

        Not rich enough to have the best benefits or much worth stealing, though the women are often attractive.

        • Le Barbouze

          Also they’re more racist.

  • IKUredux

    Too little. Too late. Will that be the final chapter on a future historian’s tome on the “Rise and Fall of White people”.Name of Tome:” We Europeans supplicate ourselves to the non Whites of the world ” We are White people, we accept everyone as our equals, even though they are not. We Europeans would rather die than admit non Whites are not as smart as we are. White civilization is equal to Earth death.

    In fact, the White race would prefer to see the Earth die, than do anything that might be construed as racist.

  • Ed

    Simple and to the point. It’s the same mantra of Japan. It has worked well for them.

  • Le Barbouze

    Good for Orban – E Europe has been fortunate to avoid the cultural enrichment that we’ve had to endure in the West(aside from the Ottomans). He’s still got the whole of the EU against him though.

  • Realist

    “We would like to keep Hungary as Hungary.”

    Good luck.

  • Realist


  • John Smith

    Meanwhile, the rest of the EU leadership hates the guy – so he must be doing something right.

  • John Smith

    America started out as a big tent, with no particular history except a Germano-Celtic base and what we created, but when some groups start stinking it up, they should be sent packing. European countries have a unique ethnic history that would be disrupted by large amounts of immigration, especially from non-European countries.
