Prime Minister Viktor Orbán gave a rousing speech yesterday to mark the anniversary of Hungary’s anti-Habsburg revolution of 1848.
The prime minister stressed that judging by the way the world is headed, “they want to take our country away”.
“We are expected to willingly hand over [our country] within a few decades … to foreigners from other continents who don’t speak our language, respect our culture, our laws or way of life,” he said.
He said countries that do not stop the migration wave at their borders will be overrun and lost, and highlighted the importance of the April 8th general election in protecting the nation from this fate.
“All of this is being forced on us by external forces and international powers and their accomplices here,” the prime minister said. “They see the upcoming election as the right time for this,” he added.
PM Orbán remembered the importance of the 1848 Revolution and called March 15th “the day that lifts the hearts of all Hungarians”, the day “when the word ‘freedom’ was written into the history books in Hungarian”.
“In a little over three weeks’ time, we will once again decide on the future of Hungary. And in this election, it will not just be four years at stake,” he added.
