World View: EU Parliament Censures Hungary for Breaching ‘Core EU Values’

EU Parliament Censures Hungary for Breaching ‘Core EU Values’

….the most divisive charge was Orbán’s extremely hardline attitude toward (Mohammedan) migrants. Germany MEP Manfred Weber, who has announced his bid to become the next president of the European Commission, accused Orbán of running a hate campaign against Muslim migrants:

One thing must be clear – if we say generally that you have to be afraid about Muslims, and attack a religion, then we do the job of jihadis, who want to create a clash in our societies. We have invented human rights and not Christian rights on this continent.

Weber is ignorant. He hasn’t got a clue about “human rights” under Islam.

Controversial ‘Anti-Islam’ Book Shoots to Top of German Best Seller List

DUISBURG, GERMANY - DECEMBER 11: A general view during the friday prayer at the DITIB-Merkez Mosque is taken on December 11, 2009 in Duisburg, Germany. The recent referendum in Switzerland, in which 57 percent of respondents voted for a ban on the construction of minarets, has sparked a debate across …

A new book that is highly critical of Islam is now the number one bestselling non-fiction book in Germany, selling well over 100,000 copies less than two weeks after its initial release.

The book, entitled Hostile Takeover: How Islam Impedes Progress and Threatens Society, is the latest from former Social Democrat (SPD) politician and former member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank, Thilo Sarrazin. Hostile Takeover now leads Der Spiegel‘s bestseller list for non-fiction.

Mr Sarrazin is no stranger to controversy in Germany, having already published a harsh criticism of the country’s multicultural experiment entitled Germany Abolishes Itself in 2010. He has also become a leading thinker in Germany’s new right, which is largely centred around the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD).

In what some analysts are considering a historic action in the development of the European Union, the European Parliament voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to pursue disciplinary action against Hungary over alleged breaches of the EU’s core values. The phrase “core values” refers to values on which the EU was founded.

More than two-thirds of MEPs voted for the censure motion, the first in EU’s history. A similar motion to censure Poland has not yet reached the European Parliament.

There were numerous charges leveled against Hungary’s president Viktor Orbán, including the following:

  • modifying the constitution multiple times to remove checks and balances
  • corruption in elections, including intimidating and xenophobic rhetoric, media bias, and opaque campaign financing
  • presidential control of the courts
  • court procedures violated rights to a fair trial
  • firing of judges for political reasons
  • no prohibitions for conflicts of interest in Hungary’s parliament
  • restrictions on international monitoring of elections
  • insufficient legal guarantees against unlawful secret surveillance for national security purposes
  • changes to the definition of “illegal media content” that restrict freedom of the press, as well as freedom of opinion and expression
  • restrictions on academic freedom
  • harsh restrictions on freedom of religion, reducing the number of legally recognized churches in Hungary to 14, requiring deregistration process of hundreds of previously lawfully recognized churches
  • questioning the legitimacy of NGO work related to the exercise of fundamental freedoms, such as the rights to freedoms of opinion and expression, and of peaceful assembly and of association
  • adoption of a legislative package consisting of three draft laws, also known as the “Stop-Soros Package,” targeting NGOs that work with migrants, alluding to the “survival of the nation,” and linking the work of NGOs to an alleged international conspiracy.
  • patriarchal stereotyped attitudes still prevail in Hungary with respect to the position of women in society

However, the most divisive charge was Orbán’s extremely hardline attitude toward migrants. Germany MEP Manfred Weber, who has announced his bid to become the next president of the European Commission, accused Orbán of running a hate campaign against Muslim migrants:

One thing must be clear – if we say generally that you have to be afraid about Muslims, and attack a religion, then we do the job of jihadis, who want to create a clash in our societies. We have invented human rights and not Christian rights on this continent.

Too late:

On Tuesday, Orbán spoke to the Parliament, and condemned the expected vote:

I know that you have already made up your minds. I know that a majority will approve the report and I know that my speech here today will not manage to change your opinion.

But still I have come here today because you are not going to condemn a government but a country as well as a nation. You are going to denounce Hungary that has been a member of the family of Christian nations for a thousand years.

After the vote, Hungary’s foreign minister called the vote fraudulent and vowed to challenge it.

Almost every nation in the world is becoming increasingly nationalistic and xenophobic as the world goes deeper into a generational Crisis era. This is happening because the survivors of the horrors of World War II vowed never to allow anything so horrible to happen again, and they have spent their lives doing everything they could to prevent it. But those survivors continue to disappear, and people in younger generations, with no personal knowledge of the horrors of World War II, adopt increasingly xenophobic and nationalistic behaviors that will lead to a new world war.

Orbán’s remark saying that Hungary “has been a member of the family of Christian nations for a thousand years” is interesting. Xenophobia, which is derived from a Greek word meaning “fear of strangers,” really has nothing to do with religion, although for Orbán the issue is Christians versus Muslims.

But a big part of Britain’s campaign has been xenophobia directed at Christians from countries like Poland and Hungary in Eastern Europe, and xenophobia in America has been directed at Christians from Mexico. The xenophobic “fear of strangers” can apply anyone, such as the mutual xenophobia between China and each of Japan, the Philippines and Vietnam.

From the point of view of Generational Dynamics, the way the world works is that population grows exponentially, growing faster than the resources such as food and water, resulting in mass migrations. Today we are seeing huge human migrations around the world, in the Mideast, Africa, South America, and Asia. These huge human migrations cause problems that can be resolved in only one way: a new world war. A new world war will reduce the population 30%, 40%, 50% – through nuclear war, ground war, starvation, and disease. That will reduce the need for mass migrations, will solve the problem of insufficient food for everyone, and will even reduce the amount of “human activity,” making climate change activists happy.

EU proposes a new free trade agreement with Africa

Jean-Claude Jüncker, the outgoing president of the European Commission, announced in his State of the Union speech on Wednesday a proposal for a new “Africa – Europe Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs.”

The intent is to create “a comprehensive continent-to-continent free trade agreement between the EU and Africa.” During the period 2021-27, overall funding will increase by €123 billion, creating 10 million new jobs in Africa.

The major motivation for this proposal is to try to slow the flow of migrants from Africa to Europe, by providing jobs in Africa that will reduce the motivation to migrate. According to the press release:

The joint efforts on jobs and growth under the Alliance, by African and European partners, will also contribute to address challenges and opportunities linked to mobility and migration. The efforts will address the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement, building resilience, providing jobs and enabling the integration and reintegration of some of the most vulnerable parts of the population. The proposal therefore supports and contributes to the implementation of the EU Agenda for Migration.

This proposal appears to be highly delusional. EU member states would object to the proposal, particularly in the area of opening agricultural markets, where Africa would have a price advantage.

Furthermore, Africa does not appear ready to negotiate as a 54 member bloc. There are existing negotiations for an African Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) where the countries are unable to agree on ending tariffs among African nations. Reuters and European Commission and RFI

5 thoughts on “EU apparatchik: “We have invented human rights and not Christian rights on this continent””

  1. Anybody who doesn’t believe that the EU is destroying the very fabric of Europe is deluding themselves. If the EU keeps going the way it is there will only be one outcome. Civil War.

  2. Who are they kidding “A new free trade agreement with Africa” If anybody cared to look there already is one. Thousands upon Thousands of phoney economic parasites are sent/coming on a yearly basis and Europe is sending millions upon millions of Euro’s to Africa dictators and human traffickers in exchange.
    Seems like a very well thought out and profitable agreement in free trade for everyone except European citizens.

  3. The arrogance of the EU grandees knows no bounds. The EU did not invent human rights, and the extraordinary, magnificent and courageous Victor Orban is quite correct in the claims he makes for the vital place of Christianity in the evolution of human rights. Even atheists and agnostics, if they are being honest, will acknowledge the moral goodness of the Christian worldview. Christianity urges its followers to be the very best they that can be, rather than the absolute worst. The fact that many Christians have failed to live up to those impossibly high ethical and moral standards, does not change that reality.

  4. “Weber is ignorant. He hasn’t got a clue about “human rights” under Islam.”

    There is no such thing as “human rights” under Islam.

    The OIC wants Cairo Declaration on Human Rights not the one UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    The Islam one is based on Sharia Law (not universal) so does not apply to infidels.

    Muslim states (OIC) do not what infidel laws

    Good luck to Europe to work all this out.

  5. The EU is, at the moment, islamocommunism “light”. Once it gets its army in place, it will simply be islamocommunism. There’s nothing worse than armed bureaucrats with their panties in a wad.
