Hungary Teaches Globalists a Lesson on Immigration, Borders, Democracy
by TOM TANCREDO
In his book Politics and the English Language, George Orwell wrote, “it is almost universally felt that when we call a country democratic we are praising it: consequently the defenders of every kind of régime claim that it is a democracy…. Words of this kind are often used in a consciously dishonest way.”
Seventy years later, Orwell’s insight on the use and abuse of the English language still rings true. Take for example, the Clinton/Obama attack on Hungary for being “undemocratic.”
In May, Bill Clinton said that Hungary and Poland “decided this democracy is too much trouble” and that they “want Putin-like leadership: ‘just give me an authoritarian dictatorship and keep the foreigners out.’” He was attacking — and slandering – Hungary for blocking the entry of a few hundred thousand Muslim migrants, many of them from Syria.
Last October, Rob Berschinski, the Obama’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, visited Hungary to lecture about the Obama administration’s “concerns with the democratic backsliding in Hungary.” Just as Orwell said, Clinton and the Obama administration called Hungary undemocratic because they don’t like its immigration policies.
