The Guardian reports:
Hungary’s nationalist leader, Viktor Orbán, will be the star speaker at an extraordinary session of America’s CPAC to be held in Hungary this week, in an effort to cement bonds between the radical right on both sides of the Atlantic under the banner of the “great replacement” ideology. In a speech on Monday, Orbán made explicit reference to the ideology, which claims there is a liberal plot to dilute the white populations of the US and European countries.
“I see the great European population exchange as a suicidal attempt to replace the lack of European, Christian children with adults from other civilizations – migrants,” Orbán declared in a speech to mark the start of his fourth term in office. Echoing another popular theme on the American right, he argued that another form of cultural suicide was “gender madness”, a reference to the spread of LGBTQ+ rights in the west.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban gave the keynote address at CPAC Hungary on Thursday after a short video message from Tucker Carlson and an open speech from American Conservative Union head Matt Schlapp. “Progressive liberals, neo-Marxists dazed by the woke dream, people financed by George Soros and promoters of open societies … want to annihilate the Western way of life that you and us love so much,” Orban said.
“We must coordinate the movement of our troops as we face a big test, 2024 will be a decisive year,” he added, and “reconquer the institutions in Washington D.C. and Brussels.” Orban also praised Carlson, who broadcast his Fox News show from Hungary for a week in 2021, as the only American media figure willing to challenge “the rule of the liberal media.” Other prominent U.S. media figures to speak at the conference include Candace Owens and Jack Posobiec.
The theme of CPAC Hungary, as seen on the stage’s backdrop, is “God, Homeland, Family.”
We are either hurtling towards a new Dark Age…
…or we are witness to a dark before a glorious New Dawn.
I live with an equal sense of terror and hope.
Feels like everything is tilting towards hell
This is a terrible period in world history, Ross. I’m 70 and have lived through some awful periods – but this one, ours today, is particularly awful.
I call upon the very ancient Jewish wisdom of my people:
The only “gender madness” is the insistence that all humans are naturally heterosexual, in two neatly defined genders, and that any deviation from that norm is wrong. Gender sanity is recognizing that humanity is complicated and that most of us are somewhere on a spectrum.
