The prime minister said Hungary had “the antidote”. Addressing the Conservative Political Action Conference, he said: “We have to say no to migration, gender and war.”
Hungary, he added, was an “incubator” for devising the conservative politics of the future and the place where the defeat of progressive liberals and a conservative, Christian political turnaround not only had been talked about but accomplished, too.
“Hungary’s shining success” when Fidesz came to power in 2010 “was ignored worldwide until 2015”, he said. “Had [American financier] George Soros not attacked Hungary and declared a programme to settle millions of illegal migrants in Europe with the help of the NGOs on his payroll, we would never have made it to the headlines of global media,” Orbán said.
“When they flooded the Balkans with illegal migrants and constructed the people-smuggling route into the heart of Europe, they came up against Hungary. We commanded a halt to that, took on the challenge and defended ourselves, built a fence and protected our homeland,” he said.
