Wilders: Orbán is a very brave leader

Geert Wilders said PM Orbán proudly stands up for his country and protects Hungarians from illegal immigration.

Geert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV), said bravery is a precondition of victory, and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán “is a very brave leader” who proudly stands up for his country and protects Hungarians from illegal immigration.

Speaking at the CPAC Hungary conference, Wilders noted that the Freedom Party doubled their parliamentary seats in November last year, becoming the largest party in the Netherlands, adding that the key to PVV’s success was in its courage to speak out against the policy of open borders and wokeism. One of the major threats, he said, was the woke movement, whose essence was that everything is relative, everything is interchangeable, and “that is the message of the leftist elite”. Another external, threat was of a demographic nature, he said, referring to “a huge migration crisis”, as many European nations struggled to contend with illegal immigrants. The PVV leader noted that in 2004 Islamist fanatics had put him on a death list because “I dared to criticise Islam”. But this had not discouraged him, he said, adding that “our freedom of speech is sacred and we will never ever compromise on the truth, ever”. There are no illegal migrants and “no-go” zones in Budapest, he said, adding that by opening [the EU’s] borders, the leadership of former German chancellor Angela Merkel had put European Christian civilisation at risk.

Meanwhile, Republican US Senatorial candidate Kari Lake for Arizona said in a video message: “When I am in the United States Senate and President Trump returns to the White House … we will work together again to bring an end to this senseless slaughter between Russia and Ukraine, and bring stability to the world once again.” In the video, Lake noted her visit to Budapest last year, saying: “From the Buda Castle to the Chain Bridge, Heroes’ Square, we looked at your glittering landmarks with awe. But what truly impressed us was just how safe we felt.” She said this was a testament to the leadership of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, “who has delivered historic peace and prosperity” to Hungary. Lake also praised the Hungarian government’s family policy measures which, she said, had almost halved the number of abortions. She noted the role of family tax incentives and said the same thing should be done in the United States.
