The Loss of Liberty In Canada

Freedom of speech in the West II.

Conservative Trudeau

Canada has been sterio-typed as a “Free” and “Equal” country for years; this isn’t true.

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms was signed into law by Queen Elizabeth II of Canada on April 17, 1982. Section (2) of Canada’s Charter cites “Freedom of Expression” Freedom of Expression isn’t really free; our freedom of expression is unrealistic by the governments ability to pass laws to inhibit freedom on the grounds of “Reasonable Limits* This is concerning when you have a left-leaning government that takes offense to factual evidence and Flirting.

Bill (C-16) is a good example of this; LGBTQ is protected against descrimination and propaganda. This is all great, the issue is that Canadian Citizens have to worry about commenting on someones appearance or using improper pronouns when interacting with others which is a large burden when it comes to free speech.

Several Universities and Colleges have used Bill (C-16) against…

A leftist tree-hugger story

The Orbán government, with the support of Fidesz-led Budapest city council and István Tarlós, Budapest’s Fidesz-nominated  chief mayor, has been rebuilding  “Liget”. As  BBC put it,  this is one of the oldest parks in Europe and I would add that it’s a bit like the Central Park for New York.   Leftist-liberal “environmentalist’ groups have been protesting against this grand project for a long time.   They were chaining themselves to caterpillars and trees in the usual way, etc.  They made good pictures to illustrate all those articles and reports in the global media about “Fascist Hungary”.

MED_0015041466

A tree which couldn’t be saved even by a left-liberal freedom fighter.

The Liget project was short-listed  in Cannes last year among the “Oscard Awards of property development” in the category “Best Futura Mega Project”.   That didn’t bother these Soros-networked groups, of course.

Today’s news is that the “Liget’s Defenders”, as they called themselves, have abandoned their tents. Having closed the “Open Society Fund” office in Budapest, now I suppose Mr. Soros has pulled the plug on these tree-huggers, too.

To mark this cheerful event, let’s watch this “before and after” video:

Hungary punches above her weight

What is the significance of the Hungarian election for the world?

 

Five years ago, well before the so-called “refugee crisis” of 2015, I posted about the Orbanization of Europe and the “Hungarian disease”. That was  when it became obvious that the “Politically Correct liberal” status quo in the world is being threatened and  Hungary could be in the very epicentre of the global change which could destroy PC-liberalism.

Then came 2015 when, using the words of the left-liberal political site Politico,  which named PM Orban as Number One among those “who are shaping, shaking and stirring Europe”,  and Hungary really started “punching above her weight”, using their words again.

Foreign Policy, an influential American  neolib/con journal wrote this in 2016:

Orban’s populist intuition has enabled him to set the political agenda far beyond Hungary. Despite being one of the EU’s newer and poorer members, his country has punched above its weight.

Then this global political change reached the USA and President Trump was elected last year.  Viktor Orbán was the only Western leader who endorsed Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton.  If you look at the comment sections of  neolib-neocon media like The Financial Times, Bloomberg, Yahoo, The Economist, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Washington Post, etc. then you will see that a very significant number of their readers sharply reject the false picture their articles draw about Hungary and PM Orbán.  I would risk to say even that PM Orbán has reached a kind of political stardom in the West.

Look East“, suggested a leading French journalist and political thinker in the influential French newspaper Le Figaro a few days ago.

Orbán has invented the theory of illiberalism which he contrasted with liberalism but not with market economy. … This confrontation between liberalism and illiberalism, between ‘the rule of law’ and democracy, will be the main controversy in Europe. … The theory of illiberalism, which was born in Hungary, has spread all over Central Europe…  and this Hungarian theory may be the big chance for the French Right as well.

A popular British newspaper wrote that  “Hungary is a bigger threat to EU than Brexit. How Orbán’s victory could topple Brussels“.  Though I consider this more like a click-bait, I still think there’s a grain of truth in it.  The truth is that Orbán doesn’t want to dismantle the EU.  He wants to change Europe, and the European Union, for the better. He wants to destroy PC-liberalism which, as he said,  is suicide for the West.

As far as Hungarian domestic politics is concerned, with his third landslide election victory, Orbán has become the most successful Hungarian politician of all times. Only the political record of PM István Tisza from the early 20th century comes close  but  Tisza certainly didn’t make an impact in international politics.

One could definitely conclude almost five years after that blog post that  Europe is being “Orbanized” undoubtedly and the “Hungarian disease” is spreading indeed.  Actually it’s spreading even outside Europe. 🙂

What is even more encouraging is that the Orbán’s reply to his spectacular political success was  Soli Deo gloria.

A week after Hungary’s election

All votes have been counted and these are the (non-final) official election results :

Fidesz-KDNP 2 824 206 votes 134 seats
Jobbik 1 092 669 votes 26 seats
Hungarian Socialist Party  682 602 20 seats
LMP (leftist greens) 404 425 8 seats
DK (ex-PM Gyurcsány’s extremist left-liberals) 308 068 9 seats
John O’Sullivan, the president of the Budapest-base conservative-classical liberal Danube Institute and a director of the Washington think-tank, 21st Century Initiatives,  analysed very well  why Fidesz-KDNP could achieve what hardly anybody had expected: a third landslide victory, that is yet another super-majority.
  1.  the economic success of Orbán’s government
  2.  the voters’ agreement with Orban’s opposition to mass migration
  3. their admiration for Orbán’s personal leadership qualities
  4. a badly divided opposition
 I highly recommend that you should read his article Hungary Embraces National Conservatism  in full.
So what happened since last Sunday?  Well, with the exception of loony ex-Socialist PM  Ferenc Gyurcsány who drove Hungary’s economy into the ground in 2008, every opposition party leader has resigned.
Then there was a rather big demonstration in Budapest yesterday evening.   Protesting the results of a high turnout, free parliamentary election, Jobbik’s activists walked hand-in-hand with rainbow-coloured mental cases, George Soros’ sympathizers, with all those who used to refer to Jobbik as “Nazi” in every sentence they said about them, with those left-liberals who never fail to call themselves “democrats” .  The organizers promised more demonstrations demanding a “fair election system” and new elections. So there will be at least yet another one next week.  Incidentally, there had  been serious worries that the Antifa thugs, who set Hamburg on fire last summer, would turn up at this rally and the Hungarian police and secret services took all sort of measures to protect the country.
The global media (BBC, The Washington Post, etc. , practically all the usual suspects!) were very excited, of course, and they devoted a lot of space to yesterday’s anti-Orbán rally.  Certainly there wasn’t so much global media attention on the  pro-Orbán rally before the elections which was actually much bigger.

 

George Soros, Senator Palpatine (Darth Sidious, the Emperor) of our times, is going to have talks with top EU officials  in Brussels on Monday, the globalist media is going to keep trying to de-legitimize the fourth Orbán government and there will be a couple of more demonstrations against the will of the Hungarian people as well.  All in all, Hungary  won a very important battle on the 8th of April but the war is far from being over.

Orbán’s victory speech and first interview

 

I never thought this would be possible but it seems PM Orban’s Fidesz-KDNP has won the third supermajority (two thirds of the seats)!  It’s a huge victory indeed.

Orbán’s victory speech was succinct. He simply thanked the Hungarian voters for the very high turnout, he thanked his supporters, the party activists’ work and his wife personally. Then he said “Soli Deo gloria” (“Glory to God alone” in Latin).   (Yes, he is Protestant).

He gave an interview to Echo TV shortly after the speech:

We’re not against Europe and the European Union. We do want Europe and we do want the European Union. We want a successful and strong European Union.  To this end, we must speak up first and we must tell everything frankly what we don’t like.. …

Hungary doesn’t want to commit those mistakes which other countries, richer and more powerful than us, have committed.  We don’t want Europe to be ruined because of these mistakes. We want to rectify these mistakes.  Hungary, with her full weight, is ready to take part in this common European work.”

Too many white people, too many crosses for EU

The city of Székesfehérvár was a  Hungarian royal residence and it played an important role in Hungary’s history:  our first kings were crowned and buried here.  Székesfehérvár  has recently applied to become “The European Capital of Culture” for 2023.

The city council had this promotional film made for the jury:

 

The application has been rejected.  As mayor  Dr. András Cser-Palkovics recalled on a press conference after the hearing that the jury objected on the grounds that “there were too many happy white people and crosses and not enough migrants” (in the film featuring Székesfehérvár) . Here is a link to the Hungarian language web page of Székesfehérvár and here is an English language summary from elsewhere.

So this is where we stand in 2018. The European Union has let the cat out of the bag. Their favoured cat is anything but white.

A reader’s comment on Orbán

The Financial Times has published some Orbán-bashing article again: “Viktor Orban: the rise of Europe’s troublemaker. ..The man who turned Hungary into a semi-authoritarian regime was once a democratic activist…” , etc.

This really wouldn’t be worth mentioning at all since the article itself is just  a collection of those old, tired clichés

cliche

which every left-liberal newspaper loves to spout about Viktor Orbán.

However a reader (no, it wasn’t me!) actually posted an excellent analysis in the comment section.  Hope it’s all right to republish the full post here without his/her permission.

The story of the “good guy goes bad” might have some artistic antecedents but is not an accurate portrayal of Orban since 1989. There is much more continuity between the Orban of 1989 and the Orban of 2018 than the article acknowledges. He has always been an implacable opponent of the left and its errors as he sees them. In 1989 this was the totalitarian communist left, in 2018 it’s the secular,internationalist, multiculturalist left. More recently, the left has so deeply infiltrated a decaying ‘liberalism’ that to attack it is to be portrayed as attacking the rule of law and democracy. Hence the ‘authoritarian’ label. He also remains a “nationalist” or “patriot” (depending on your view of these things) from telling the Russian Army to go home in 1989 to arguing against the EU imposed migrant quotas in recent times. Unashamed of putting his country and its people first (long before the Trumpster chanted “America first”) this has antagonised the EU, NGOs or even multinational firms (more recently) who have become a chorus of disapproval. He also remains, despite all the insinuations, a democrat and a very successful one at that. If the result of the next election is predictable it’s because Orban’s party machine is unbelievably more effective than the fragmented opposition that exists in the wake of the Socialists self-destruction in 2006-2010. The problem of the Hungarian opposition is not Orban – who presents an obvious and easy target, it is egos, fragmentation and some say possibly the comfort of foreign donations that find their way to a “professional liberal” opposition. Despite the scare-mongering in the international media, when I visited Hungary last year, I saw posters attacking Orbán for corruption (mentioned in the article – to its credit) . I also see a thriving domestic Hungarian language opposition media, online and in print. Hungary remains a place where you can think, say and write what you like, organise politically as you like and vote accordingly. Protests happen regularly and unlike in 2006 under the socialist / ‘liberal’ government the police are not beating up protestors. Interesting that those weren’t covered in the international media of the period nor was the socialist era corruption; how unlike today’s long form “exposés”. (Garton-Ash’s talk of a hybrid state is laughably off beam.) Orban is a conservative of the old school – which is why he has plenty of support in the EPP and in neighbouring Austria and Germany. His position is not a million from the old Christian Democrats, before the compromises Merkel made to hold on to power. He was a mentee of Kohl until the end and I speculate would’ve been an ally of Adenauer. Although he’s more religious, conservative and politically astute than in 1989, perhaps a by-product of aging and accumulated life experience, he is very much the same man as then. He retains his uncanny political instincts and a reassuringly Conservative detachment from too much ideology. He has proven unafraid of shaking up the ex-communist deep state (by then wearing ‘liberal’ garb) who promptly went shrieking to their western allies and fellow-travellers. He added to his enemies list by not kowtowing to ‘liberal’ shibboleths such as multiculturalism (the migrant controversy), political correctness (gay marriage will not be arriving in Hungary – 2011 constitution) and states whose ethical foundation is atheistic in practical terms (special recognition for religious communities in Hungary – 2011 constitution) . This unwillingness to kowtow has made him a lightening rod for an assortment of enemies, including Soros and his foundations (no long form exposés on them in the FT ! ). Being Orbán, this is a role he makes his own and on previous form will find a way to turn to his advantage – indeed a remarkable man.

Of Jobbik, the illegal migrants and refugees

These days we may witness quite peculiar developments in Hungarian domestic politics… which do have international relevance.  One may definitely spot a universal pattern for the left-liberal attitude in general and their so-called “values” in the following story!

As some of my readers may know, Jobbik is a (former?) far-right party which surfaced out of nowhere in Hungary in about 2008. They appeared on the political scene by their winning three European parliamentary seats in 2009 and then they made it into the Hungarian Parliament in 2010 as a rather significant opposition force. Their main political agenda appeared to be creating and riding anti-Gypsy and anti-Jewish sentiments arising from Hungary’s de-facto economic bankruptcy  in 2008.   The international mainstream media were very keen indeed to illustrate all their reports from Hungary with such pictures of “Nazi Jobbik rallies”:

The so-called “progressive forces”, that is the remnants of the PC-liberal regime which ran amok in Hungary between 2002 and 2010, never failed to accuse Fidesz and PM Orbán of collusion with “Nazi Jobbik” either in those times.

As in 2010, PM Orbán’s Fidesz-KDNP  had a landslide victory again in 2014.   The climax of the  illegal migration crisis , which put Hungary in international limelight, occurred in the autumn of 2015.  This was the time when Orbán’s government eventually built a border fence in order to protect Hungary, and Europe, from the so-called “refugees”, that is hordes of Middle Eastern and African illegal migrants whose influx was actively supported by the “NGOs” of George Soros, by Angela Merkel’s Germany and by the EU itself, stormed Hungary.   Then Jobbik demanded “tougher measures” against them and the “progressive ones”, that is the postcommunists and PC-liberals, were blowing the Refugees Welcome Because Illegal Migration is a Basic Human Right trumpets.  You may know this as the deeply hypocritical and false  “Willkommenskultur” phenomenon.

Then only about a year later,   Jobbik and those progressive ones,  the very same people who used to drool about “Orbán’s collusion with the neo-Nazi Jobbik”,  started to befriend each other spectacularly. This rapid process was called “Jobbik’s people’s party turn”.   Soon PC-liberal “celebrities”, such as Marxist philosopher Ágnes Heller, started advocating “a technical coalition with Jobbik in order to remove Orbán from power”. The international mainstream media quickly followed suit and they took a liking to Jobbik very soon, too.

So ex-“Nazi” Jobbik campaigned against a referendum which the Orbán-government initiated so that Hungary’s Constitution could be changed in order to block the EU’s mandatory migrant quotas. (The ruling parties lost their supermajority in a by-election in 2015 which they won on the 2014 elections as they did in 2010.   A supermajority, that is two thirds of the seats in the Hungarian Parliament, is needed to change the Hungarian Constitution.).  Jobbik didn’t vote for the proposed constitution amendment  and they also tried to blackmail the government parties.  Soon Jobbik even stood up for the so-called “civil organizations”,  Soros-financed  NGO’s supporting and organizing illegal migration into Europe, and his privileged Central European University which is a training facility for PC-liberal Social Justice Warriors!

And now comes the punchline of the story.  It made news a few weeks ago that Hungary provided temporary protection to about 1300 people in 2017 who submitted their asylum application at the border fence.  PM Orbán said in a  radio interview last Friday:

That is about people who are in need of protection, who are in need of protection under international law: people who differ from migrants in the sense that, first of all, they knocked on our door. The migrants, you see, left a trail of destruction on our country’s border and they entered the territory of Hungary illegally; and not only did they fail to obey Hungary’s laws, but they declared that they would not obey our laws. The people we are talking about now – these 1,300 people – politely waited at the border, they knocked on our door, they went to the official border crossing-points, and they told us that they needed protection. Most of them, by the way, are women and unaccompanied minors. The Hungarian authorities said that they would examine their applications; and incidentally the legal basis for this is formed by the international asylum conventions, which the Hungarian parliament earlier incorporated into our legal system. We have never accepted EU regulations on migrant quotas, and we shall never adopt them. So here in Hungary nobody can claim any rights based on those regulations. So we’ve assessed these people, we’ve seen that they truly are in need of protection, and we’ve granted them this on a temporary basis. This is an important point, because from the moment that they no longer need protection they must immediately return to where they came from.

So they won’t become Hungarian citizens?

They never will be. In Brussels we are condemned, and organisations operating in Hungary which support immigration condemn us, because we only grant protection which is temporary, and we don’t offer the opportunity of permanent residence. Incidentally the figures on exactly how many such people are present in Hungary are regularly released by the Immigration Office.

Now the left-liberal “progressive ones” in Hungary, in unison  with their newly found ally Jobbik, are talking of  “Orbán backing migration, conspiracy to settle migrants in Hungary”!  Hungarian speakers may want to watch  this  recent  video as a “Hungarian Cathy Newman” was serving as a microphone stand for a Jobbik party spokesman for this very purpose.  You just couldn’t make this up.
