One of the best speeches by a European political leader.
Mr. Orbán talks frankly and lucidly about the major crises that are currently bedeviling Europe, including the “refugee” crisis and the heavy-handed behavior of the European Union towards the nations of Europe — which it considers its vassal states. The prime minister focuses on the primary overarching issue, which is the attempt by trans-national organizations to impose global governance on nation states. He describes the current “populist revolt” that has arisen to resist the globalists, with Brexit and the election of Donald Trump being the most recent major examples. Gates of Vienna
Respected [former] President Pál Schmitt and his dear wife, Dear Mrs. Dalma, [former] Prime Minister Peter Boros, everyone who invited me, ladies and gentlemen. It is good to see you all again, it is the 19th time — that is way too much, even from dumplings —
I would like to evoke the words of István Szabó, our greatly respected bishop, in his little story, where two little boys are listening to the mass… “This is boring,” says the smaller one, then the older boy answers: “Well, this is how supposed to be.” …
Well, dear audience, today we do not have to be afraid of that. The year 2016 was not boring, not the least bit. And the year 2017 looks rather interesting too. We had — and we will have — excitement, surprise, scratching of heads, wiping of foreheads and rubbing of eyes.
We will ask of each other: it is really possible, what unfolds before our eyes, and takes shape? Who would have thought — just a couple of years ago — that history would defy the prophecies, and laughingly show the fig sign to the prophets of liberal politics, and would likely show an “up yours!” to the beneficiaries and protectors of the international order: the globalists and liberals, to influential people, living in their ivory tower palaces and sitting in their television studios. To the army of media locusts and their masters. To everybody who believed, taught and spread, who enjoyed its gains and absorbed its revenues, that the global liberal world order is unalterable.
If the dissatisfied ones do not keep their mouths shut, or if the media fail to inhibit their voice, then they will be denounced, stigmatized and disinherited. And in this, there is no mercy, even for the new American President. No wonder then, that the high pressure became permanent in the European Union. The valves sooner or later will seize up and stop working, and the people, lacking any other options, will revolt.
That is, they are kicking it out with their votes,
tossing out the liberal elite. This is how the world works now, respected ladies and gentlemen, respected [former] President, in the wintertime of 2017.
