Viktor Orbán's Landslide Victory in Hungary Shows Citizens Are Sick of Marxist Globalists
The resounding election victory in Hungary of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his party was a triumph for “Christian democratic, conservative, patriotic politics,” as Orbán put it. There was a fair election and the people of Hungary gave a decisive blow to the globalist, woke agenda at the ballot box.
“[LifeSiteNews] Pro-life and pro-family Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has won a fourth term as the Central European nation’s leader after his conservative Fidesz Party’s landslide success at the polls was announced Sunday.
58-year old Orbán fought off a six-party coalition aimed at unseating him to take a supermajority in Parliament, with Fidesz now holding 135 of the 199 available seats, just under 68 percent, and the opposition bloc taking just 56 seats.
Orbán, who has presided over Hungary for 12 years and is the European Union’s (EU) longest serving prime minister, will now rule for a further four, despite early polls predicting he would be ousted.
The prime minister was welcomed by a crowd cheering his name Sunday night as polling results showed his success. Addressing his supporters, Orbán said that they ‘have won a great victory – a victory so great you can see it from the moon and certainly from Brussels.’1
‘The entire world can see that our brand of Christian democratic, conservative, patriotic politics has won.’
‘We are sending Europe a message that this is not the past – this is the future, our common European future’. . .
Hungary has also faced fierce opposition from within the EU over social and political issues; the European Parliament voted in March to withdraw funding to the country over its refusal to bow to the bloc’s pro-LGBT stance.
The EU criticized legislation recently enacted in Hungary known as the Child Protection Law, banning the promotion of homosexuality, ‘transgenderism,’ and pornographic materials to minors in schools as well as cracking down on pedophilia.”
Human Events Senior Editor Jack Posobiec came on Steve Bannon’s War Room on April 4 to discuss Orbán’s massive 20-point victory on a nationalist, pro-family platform. Posobiec said:
“The referendum passed even bigger than Orbán. . .[the referendum was] all about this sexual identity in the classroom, bringing the trans agenda to children. Steve, they were passing with a majority of 92 to 95% against that. . .You would see similar majorities across the United States [on these issues]. . .
[This is] a turn back to traditionalism, a turn back to sovereignty, a turn back to actual national identity for individual nations and no globalized homogenization. And by the way, Steve, I really have to shout out to, you know, the election workers in Hungary as well, because somehow they were able to count millions and millions of votes in just a couple of hours. . .We’re not waiting two and three weeks, there’s no crazy things going on at 3 am in the morning. . .Maybe we can get some of that here.”
Posobiec sees this as hope for America in the 2022 elections. I wish I could be as optimistic. Don’t get me wrong, I think the American people are good and sick of the Democrats’ destructive policies—but then again evidence points to the fact that Donald Trump won the 2020 election in a landslide, and yet the Democrats stole that election, and the Republicans did almost nothing about it. So what can we do? For one thing, we need to vote this November—nothing is ever hopeless and it’s our constitutional right and societal duty to vote. On the other hand, we also need to be putting pressure on our elected representatives to do something about election integrity. Phone calls, emails, and protests are just three ways that we can make clear to cowardly Republicans that we demand election reform so that we Americans, like the Hungarians, can defeat woke globalism at the ballot box.
