The following article is by CrossWare, a woman who did a great deal of excellent translation from Hungarian to English for articles and videos that have been used by many websites and stolen by MSM ones for many years now.
First of all, what is the connection between the Prime Minister of Hungary and myself?
We were both born and raised in the very same country town, both went to high school there (different ones) and Orbán is one year older than me. But we both grew up in the last period of socialism, so we are both a product of the same era. He went to law school after high school; I went for a BA in Engineering. So even though we ended up in very different places, our beginnings were pretty close to each other.
When socialism ended in 1989, I did not really care much about politics. However I followed his media presence, because he came from the same town as me. Fidesz was an insignificant liberal party at the time, with exactly the same type of message as all the other liberal parties in the world. That was the time when Gorge Soros (a.k.a. Schwartz) “helped” all these liberal parties against the dying socialist/communist powers. In 1998 the Fidesz party won the election (that was the year when I left Hungary and emigrated to Canada) and after just a single term, they were defeated by the communists and their latest liberal party partner the SZDSZ (Federation of Free Democrats). The voting process was suspiciously similar to the later 2020 USA election; the voting papers were destroyed before a recount could be requested (against the rules), and Hungary faced eight years of the same type of system that the USA now lives under with Joe Biden.
Viktor Orbán and Fidesz regained power in 2010, and now he is the Prime Minister of Hungary for the fourth time with a two-thirds super-majority. (There are no term limit in Hungary.)
I started focusing on politics again and OV’s role in it when the great migration started in 2015 and he had such a remarkable staunch view on it. That is when I started to translate videos of his speeches for both Gates of Vienna and VladTepesBlog. In 2017, I had to move back to Hungary to help my aging parents and my sister, who suffered some losses and chronic diseases in her life.
That was the point when I started to face reality, which was not always in sync with what Orbán spoke about in his speeches.
In his early years, Viktor Orbán was confronted by a journalist about some difference between what he said and what he did, his answer was eye-opening (at least for me):
“Never listen to what I am saying, only what I am doing” — Viktor Orbán
Well, herein lies the problem…
Living in Hungary opened up for me various sources of information, which contradicted the rosy picture suggested by Orbán’s speeches. Also, I watch all politicians with suspicion, looking for alternate motives for their behaviour. (This could be my personal issue with this “profession”.)
Let’s review all the issues based on some groupings of mine:
His personality, leadership:
I think Viktor Orbán is a highly intelligent, talented politician. Without his knowledge and diligence, Fidesz as a party could have never become so organized and ready to lead. He has a typical type A personality, which makes him a strong, charismatic leader. But it comes with all the negative side of such personality: controlling, aggressive and looking at team members as potential risk to his own power. Orbán successfully eliminated most of the potential talent for leadership in his environment, which means that when he is no longer able to lead Fidesz, the party will face a crisis finding a similar talent to continue to lead.
In 2010 the new Orbán government announced a new “movement”, which they called the NER (National Cooperation System). The idea behind it was to strengthen Hungarian-owned companies in all sectors of the economy and with that decrease our dependence on foreign companies, which many times followed their owners’ economic and political agendas. The point was to try to recreate layers of Hungarian owners, rich people who can support national causes. This societal layer was completely eliminated in the communist era. This idea worked completely in theory, but only partially in practice. As with any successful political movement, the hyenas showed up and slowly they built into the system. I have heard multiple rumours about occasions when a successful small business owner receives a visit from a representative from a large NER company, who has “excellent political connections” and makes an offer to buy the business. This is the type of offer which nobody can refuse, because the next day the tax office people arrive, and because of the overcomplicated tax system (which Fidesz, after twelve years of rule, could not fix or never wanted to fix), everyone may be found guilty of breaking some of the rules. So, mafia behaviour is rampantly present in the system, and it does not seem like there is any political will to fix the issues.
In 2015 Hungary was the first to build a fence, and Viktor Orbán gave numerous speeches, in which he very correctly examined and analysed the expected results of overwhelming migration to white European countries. He was correct, even though the Western media immediately called him racist, fascist and whatever neo-communists call anybody with some common sense.
The Orbán government established a new organisation: Border Hunters (Frontier Guard) to guard the fence and stop illegal migration. Unfortunately, one of the historical sins of all the Orbán governments and Fidesz is that they never cleansed society of the NGOs, especially George Soros’ organizations. They tried to add some weak control measures, similar to the USA Foreign Agents Registration Act, but a much lighter version, only trying to force seemingly independent NGOs to publish where they receiving their support. The law never worked; after some EU lobbying it was rejected. So all these Soros NGOs started lawfare against the Hungarian government, suing it for every migrant who got restrained at the border. The government reacted in a sheepish way, essentially using catch and release for the illegal migrants and the human smugglers. The morale of the border guards is really low, because they have to politely walk back the migrants coming over the fence, where they can try again five minutes later, and sooner or later they all succeed. There is no weapons-free order at the border, even though the human smuggler mafias are using automatic weapons to fight a war among themselves for the “market”. It is sheer luck that no Hungarian citizen has yet died there, but the only question is when.
The latest announcement of the Orbán government is that they will bring significant numbers of guest workers into Hungary to serve the requests of many foreign companies, who already received significant taxpayer money to bring their factories to Hungary. But this is no longer happening to provide work to Hungarian workers or bring added value of new technologies. The latest investors are mostly Chinese companies, for example electric battery factories to serve out the needs of car factories already established in Hungary. These places using a lot of electricity, water, high polluters and it seems they do not even want to hire Hungarians to do the work, but rather want cheap labour from Asia. With this decision Hungary starts on the very same path as Germany (1970s Turkish guest workers), or the United Kingdom with various ex-colony nations, or the USA with cheap workers from South and Central America. All of them proved, that guest workers tend to not return home when their visa expires and the companies lobby heavily to extend that and provide a legal way for them to receive citizenship and family reunification.
This moment in time was a real eye opener for me. When the Covid lockdowns and vaxxing started almost all conservative forces worldwide very correctly identified it as globalist-liberal power grab and they all moved against it. But not in Hungary. The seemingly Christian-Conservative government fully embraced the WHO directives, censorship, distorted statistics, and even forced some state professions (medical, police, army) to make the (Pfizer) vax mandatory. I have a personal story about this. My cousin worked as a junior medical database manager in a major hospital (so she had no direct contact with patients) in Budapest. She is a young girl in her early 20s. When she refused to get vaxed, she was suspended WITHOUT PAY and sent home. When she tried to quit, she was told that based on recent government regulations she cannot quit, because her job counts as a military position. Because she was left without income after a couple of months of torment, she allowed herself to be vaxed. She got three doses of Pfizer, and since then we constantly worry about her health. So far it seems, that she was lucky, but one never knows.
It also cynically outsourced making the vax mandatory for civilian companies, but luckily not many used this opportunity. The only difference was that, citing the slow pace of European procurement, they ordered some Chinese and Russian vaxes. I do not know about the Russian one, but the Chinese version was a standard non-mRNA vax with no significant health issues… maybe it not even were useful, but at least I have not heard anybody dying of that vax. Even Orbán made a speech telling the people, that to get vaxed or you will die! In my opinion, what they did, fully exhausted the definition of a crime against humanity.
When Viktor Orbán was still a leader of a purely liberal party, he was educated in Oxford, paid by George Soros. But after a couple of months he interrupted his studies and travelled home to become prime minister after the 1998 election. He also completed the WEF’s Global Young Leader program. I attach a excel sheet with all the data about that.
The governments under Viktor Orbán accepted every directive, voted for every restrictive law in the EU, which later come to bite us in the ass. It really works, his saying to watch what he is doing, not what he saying… So almost all international agreements signed, giving a green light for globalism to progress, while he constantly makes speeches about fighting for freedom against Brussels and the evil globalist EU influence. For example, to combat the spreading of the woke LGBTQ+ (P) agenda the government made a child protection law to restrict such influences from indoctrinating children. Sounds great, right? Well, only they “forgot” to include the criminal code part of the law, so it is essentially does not contain any punishment for anyone breaking it, so it is as useless as Biden economics or a Trudeau promise.
I have a couple of different speculations, depending on whether I feel black-pilled or white-pilled.
I still think that Orbán loves Hungary, but is being blackmailed by globalist forces, which restrict his room to manoeuvre and leave him with just a semblance of measures and propaganda towards the local population to keep himself in power. As I wrote above, we were both born and raised in the same world. Based on that, I can safely state that Orbán is a strong atlanticist, a believer in the supremacy of the western culture. I would have agreed with him 20 years ago, but since then in the West, the woke Marxist 2.0 (Frankfurt school) is spreading rapidly, quickly turning it into a third world. I think maybe Orbán thinks the Great Reset and globalist takeover cannot be stopped, so he might think to bring Hungary into the direction of the least-worse solution: instead of extermination, he hopes to turn the Hungarians into slaves so at least some of their lives will be spared and THEY WILL OWN NOTHING, but at least they can survive. That would explain his government’s attempt to bring as much industry into the country they can, making it indispensable. Personally I think it is better to die standing up than become a slave on our knees, and many of my compatriots agree with me. We Hungarians always fought for our freedom; our history recorded a revolution in every century. We do not have numbers for our streets, because we have plenty of dead heroes to name them for.
After the election and behaviour of Meloni in Italy, another theory came to my attention. She also pretended to be a right-wing patriot, but after her election she is following a full globalist agenda.
This also makes me suspicious about Orbán, if we recognize and account for the gap between his speeches and how his government acts, especially after his saying that it does “not matter what he says, but what he does.” And he does some frightening globalist stuff!
