European Union leaders in Brussels are to blame for the influx of migrants and are bent on creating a United States of Europe which will swallow up nation states, Hungary’s prime minister said Tuesday.
Viktor Orban said during commemorations of Hungary’s 1848 revolution against Austria’s Habsburgs that “the time has come to ring the alarm bells and gather allies” to reject the alleged Brussels scheme.
“If we want to stop the mass migration, first we must put the brakes on Brussels,” he said in a speech at the National Museum.
He has said that Europe is not free because “the truth is not allowed to be said.”
“It is forbidden to say that immigration brings crime and terror to our countries,” Orban said. “It is forbidden to say that the arriving masses from other cultures are a threat to our way of life, our culture, our habits and our Christian traditions.”
“Mass migration is a slow water which erodes the shore with a persistent flow,” Orban said. “It masquerades as a humanitarian issue but its true nature is to occupy space.”
