Right Wing's new Darling in Hungarian "Nazi" Autocrat

Post by Vēritās »

Hard to imagine why anyone would suggest the Right Wing in America is racist.

Hungarian autocrat Viktor Orban, who was once praised lavishly by Tucker Carlson after he took a trip to Hungary to kiss his ring, has stated that he is against interracial marriages.

And then, just yesterday...

Hungary's Viktor Orban fires up Texas conservatives
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has told a conference of US conservatives that the West is locked in "a clash of civilisations".

The right-wing leader drew enthusiastic applause at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Texas.

Mr Orban's speech comes after his long-time cabinet adviser resigned over comments he made that she described as "pure Nazi".

He had said Hungarians "do not want to become peoples of mixed race".
...

"You have two years to get ready," he added, in apparent reference to the 2024 US presidential election.

Mr Orban elicited a standing ovation when he read from the Hungarian constitution, declaring marriage to be only between one man and one woman.

"Less drag queens and more Chuck Norris," he said.

Speaking last month in Romania, Mr Orban triggered outrage when he said: "We are willing to mix with one another, but we do not want to become peoples of mixed race."

The remarks prompted an inner circle adviser of his to resign in protest, and provoked widespread condemnation.

On Tuesday, Mr Orban visited former President Donald Trump at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Mr Trump - who described Mr Orban in a statement as his friend - will address CPAC on Saturday.

Is there anything in the Texas Constitution to prevent Viktor Orbán from being both Texas Governor and the Hungarian Dictator? I think Mr. Orbán would rule both with an iron fist and the Texans would love it.

Orbán's racial hatred and desire to preserve his bodily fluids dovetails precisely with the new fascist leanings of the Republican Party and its CPAC donors.

There used to be a Hungarian guy (Ludwigm?) who used to post here. He was not a big fan of Orban. I wonder if he and Victor had a falling out.

Seriously, having a guy like Orban speak to a conservative caucus would be like having Hugo Chavez speak to a progressive caucus.

I liked Ludwigm and I miss hearing from him. I wonder if he is still alive.
No precept or claim is more suspect or more likely to be false than one that can only be supported by invoking the claim of Divine authority for it--no matter who or what claims such authority.

As I recall, he tended to include material, that was (very mildly) not PG-13, and Shades eventually banned him.

I rather miss him: his contributions, often detailing his relations with his solidly TBM wife and her friends, were always interesting, and sometimes quite amusing.
