PM Orbán fights for national survival against globalist elites

“[Orbán] understands that he is dealing with elites who believe that being a post-Christian, post-national civilization is a great and glorious thing,” Rob Dreher wrote.

Rod Dreher from The American Conservative has described how he, and other participants from the Christian communicators conference last week, were invited by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to meet in the PM’s office, where they talked for around 90 minutes.

In his musing, Dreher concluded that PM Orbán's main aim is to avoid having to face problems associated with liberal, multicultural western societies.

Dreher also described the Prime Minister as being vastly different to the portrayal of him in the western media.

“Orbán — who speaks good English — was energetic, fiercely intelligent, funny, self-deprecating, realistic, and at times almost pugilistic in talking about defending Hungary and her interests,” he wrote.

Dreher quoted the Prime Minister as saying Western politicians today cannot say what they think, and highlighted his quest for national survival against globalist elites.

“Orbán said that Hungary’s was the only government in Europe to respond to the crisis in its own interests, and in the interests of Christianity in Europe,” he wrote.

“[Orbán] understands that he is dealing with elites who believe that being a post-Christian, post-national civilization is a great and glorious thing,” Dreher added. “He said the main political question in the West today is how fractious pluralities can live together peaceably.”
