Hungary’s Premier Rejects Immigration, Multicultural Society
Pablo Gorondi, Yahoo! News, February 27, 2015
Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban denounced multiculturalism and liberalism Friday and vowed to fight a rising wave of migration that he said is threatening to turn his country into a “refugee camp.”
In his annual state of the nation speech, Orban called a multicultural society “a delusion” and defended his conservative government’s attempts to abandon “liberal social policies” that he accused of rejecting Christian culture.
“(A Hungarian) does not want to see throngs of people pouring into his country from other cultures who are incapable of adapting and are a threat to public safety, to his job and to his livelihood,” Orban said.
He was referring to the torrent of migrants who have entered European Union-member Hungary this year, many of them fleeing poverty in Kosovo and seeking to reach Germany and other western nations.
In his most colorful quote, Orban praised native Hungarians.
“The Hungarian man is, by nature, politically incorrect. That is, he has not lost his common sense,” he said.
