Predictably, Rod Dreher is squeamish about this excellent groundbreaking speech.
“In such a multi-ethnic context, there is an ideological feint here that is worth talking about and focusing on. The internationalist left employs a feint, an ideological ruse: the claim – their claim – that Europe by its very nature is populated by peoples of mixed race. This is a historical and semantic sleight of hand, because it conflates two different things. There is a world in which European peoples are mixed together with those arriving from outside Europe. Now that is a mixed-race world.
And there is our world, where people from within Europe mix with one another, move around, work, and relocate. So, for example, in the Carpathian Basin we are not mixed-race: we are simply a mixture of peoples living in our own European homeland. And, given a favourable alignment of stars and a following wind, these peoples merge together in a kind of Hungaro-Pannonian sauce, creating their own new European culture. This is why we have always fought: we are willing to mix with one another, but we do not want to become peoples of mixed-race. This is why we fought at Nándorfehérvár/Belgrade, this is why we stopped the Turks at Vienna, and – if I am not mistaken – this is why, in still older times – the French stopped the Arabs at Poitiers. …”
I agree with Orbán on race mixing.
I’m looking forward to what he has to say about it at CPAC.
If I said something like this, Rod would denounce me as a racist and a far right “white supremacist” and a “demon” or whatever, but since Orbán is saying it and Rod lives there now and is on the payroll and has to remain in the good graces of his patron, well, it is best to let this one slide.
