Hungary Rejects EU Migrant Quotas

101 words / 14:54

An interview by the French Rightist TV Libertés with Zoltán Kovács, the official spokesman for the Hungarian government, regarding the October 2016 referendum on the European Union’s attempt to force Hungary to accept a share of the migrants that have been flooding into Europe since the crisis began. Hungary’s next national election will be held in less than a month, and the issue of the EU migrant quotas has been the primary focus of the case being made by the ruling Fidesz party of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for why they should be returned to power. The interview is conducted in English.

    The interview is conducted in English.”

    It seems rather that it is conducted in both. The interviewer speaks (his native) French and the interviewee, the Hungarian Mr. Kovacs, understands the French questions (he nods along, no video cutting) and Mr. Kovacs responds in (excellent) English.

    (A google-translate of) the Hungarian Wiki on the interviewee —
    https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kovács_Zoltán_(politikus,_1969) — suggests that he never spent any extended period in an English-speaking country. Somehow Mr. Kovacs picked up such impeccable English in communist and immediate post-communist Hungary, including a prestige British accent. Impressive.

    Born in Feb 1969. Kovacs turned twenty a few months before Hungary’s communist regime began fraying apart and a young dissident named Viktor Orban gave his now-famous nationalistic speech denouncing communism and denouncing the USSR (June 1989). All Hungarians in politics today are coasting in the wake of the nationalist energies that took down the communist regime, including Orban himself, who, (conveniently) personally had a hand in it. (Or so is my impression. I have never been to Hungary. I would defer to John Morgan, who AFAIK still lives there.)

      “the nationalist energies that took down the communist regime”

      Communism was dismantled by the Eastern European Deep State – certain segments of the KGB and its affiliates. Nationalism played a very small role in the process.

      “he never spent any extended period in an English-speaking country”

      He spent extended periods at Central European University where English is the language of communication. Like most Hungarian politicians over the age of 40 (including Viktor Orbán), Kovács started his career in the Soros ecosystem. It took 20 years for the Right to build up and become a significant force of resistance. Westerners shouldn’t be discouraged by the current state of the Movement. Libertarianism, Nazi larping, PR disasters, money scandals, sex scandals – we’ve been there, done that. And in certain ways the Western Movement is in better shape – it is younger and has more intellectual firepower than we had at this stage.
