A historic election victory for Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his Fidesz party in Hungary over the weekend sent shock waves across Europe, as a record number of voters turned out to send a clear message of rejection to EU globalists.
Fidesz won its third consecutive election - a first in Hungarian political history.
While standard issues such as the economy, taxes, and jobs held relevance, concerns over border security and the migrant crisis ravaging Europe were front and center, and PM Orbán was quick to address them in comments on Hungarian television on Monday.
"Hungary is the country of the brave that made clear to the whole of Europe on Sunday that they want honest and clear speech, and want to call the problem plaguing this continent by its name," Orbán said. "So, if we are straightforward and speak clearly, if we don’t back down… then this nation - when there is danger - will pull itself together and turn out in great numbers and demonstrate a unified will to the world."
"This is our continent, this is our homeland, our greater homeland. We love it and we want its future to be just as bright as the successful decades behind us."
"It must be seen that Europe is suffering from disingenuousness," Orbán assessed, insinuating that a combination of deception and denial have led to the continent being "unable to speak openly about the problems plaguing it."
The FIDESZ-KDNP (Christian Democrats) coalition dominated Sunday's election, exceeding projections across the board and garnering even more votes than it did 2014, as turnout approached an incredible 70%.
"Hungarians have sent a clear message that Hungarian democracy is alive and kicking," said spokesman Zoltán Kovács.
Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó asserted that his administration has been assigned a "huge responsibility and clearly defined tasks" by voters to continue standing strong in the face of immense international pressure to admit a potentially unlimited flow of third world migrants into the country, in the same manner as nations like Germany and Sweden.
"What’s important is that a decision was taken by the Hungarian people, and not by the OSCE or the UN, and they granted the government a clear mandate," Szijjártó said.
According to snap analysis conducted by the Nézőpont Institute, FIDESZ-KDNP is the 'strongest political force' across all age demographics in Hungary, increasing its base by approximately 500,000 votes since 2014, indicating that the coalition could continue to win elections for the foreseeable future.
