Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with László Toroczkai, the mayor of the Hungarian southern border town of Ásotthalom and leader of the new nationalist political force in Hungary, called Our Home. Last year, we reported on the reforms he had implemented in his town, where he banned not only the public practice of the religion of Islam, but also all propaganda for sodomy.
This summer, Faith and Heritage was lucky enough to visit the town and get an exclusive interview with Mayor Toroczkai:
What is your reason for leaving Jobbik [the traditional nationalist party in Hungary]?
Two years ago, Vona Gabor the former leader of Jobbik, started to secretly co-operate with a few businessmen and he started to move to the left. I became the vice president of the Jobbik party around the same time and I had to get to know strategic decisions of the party through television news. I realised that the most important decisions of the party are not made during our leadership meetings, but elsewhere. So the fight was a long process, but finally I had my last debate a few months ago with Vona Gabor when he announced that he was going to enter into talks for a coalition with two leftist liberal parties in Hungary, one of which has a link to the French president, Macron’s party. And we know that the Rothschild banks and George Soros funded Macron’s campaign [in France]. And Vona Gabor wanted to form a government with these parties. Then I started making my fight against Vona Gabor and Vona Gabor’s team public.
Then there was a congress to elect the new president of the party. There were two candidates, Vona Gabor’s candidate, Sneider Tamas, and me. I was the independent candidate. But they used dirty tactics against me. For example, they started a campaign against me in the media full of lies, and they also used blackmail. They told councilmen of the party that they would be fired if they supported me. But these methods opened the eyes of a lot of members in the party. I nearly won the election. I got 46.4% of the vote, so I was very close. But finally I lost and afterwards we separated from Jobbik, and we founded a new party. And we have one member in Parliament already. But I am sure Jobbik has no chance. In the next election, we will be stronger than Jobbik. Jobbik lacks spirit, and we have regained the spirit.
I know the relationship between Jobbik and the Orban government was very strained. Do you believe this split will positively affect your relationship with Orban?
Vona Gabor cares only about power. He has a secret plan to return as the leader of Jobbik. But Jobbik will disappear because it has ideology. Vona Gabor is also close with many Muslim countries. And he also has very good relations with the Jewish community. He used to be friends with the Russians, but now he is friends with the Americans. Who can trust someone who constantly changes their position?
I, however, would like to change the political situation in Hungary, because now there are no values and ideologies, just power. It’s just a competition between politicians regarding who can lie more about their opponents. I don’t want this to continue. I could support criticism against [Orban’s] Fidesz government. For example, Fidesz’s politics with regard to Israel: they want closer relations with Israel, would like for Israel to join the Visegrad group. However, I believe Israel is partially responsible for destabilizing the Middle East and North Africa and they opened the European borders by doing this, because nobody could cross into Europe through Libya while Gaddafi ruled the country. I don’t like it when Western countries want to export their democracy to Islamic countries. I don’t want to go to Saudi Arabia and tell them how they should live. At the same time they cannot come to Europe, to Christian people and tell them how they should live and build mosques everywhere. I respect every culture, but they must respect our culture. But Fidesz invited Israel to the Visegrad group, which is the last hope of the European Union, I believe.
So I don’t agree with every policy of Fidesz, but we will co-operate with them on good policies and not attack them for publicity – like I co-operated with them when we built the border fence. We will support them in every good decision, especially in the fight against the liberal leftist leaders of the EU. It won’t be the same as with Jobbik.
Final question: What are the main goals of your new party?
To win the election and govern the country. To change the European Union. We want an alliance of sovereign European nations. We want to preserve our culture, traditions, and religion. Hungary must remain a Christian Hungarian country. And we would like to see the same for every European country. We like the diversity of Europe, but not the mixing with the populations of other continents. Of course, we are a nationalist party.
We also fight against gender-idiotism which is very strong now in Western culture. We would like to do something about the Gypsie or Roma problem, because these people couldn’t integrate into Hungarian society.
We would like to reform the tax system, which currently burdens the poor. We are fighting for those people who suffered at the hands of the banks. We have close to a million Hungarian people who had loans from the banks, but were cheated. Because the banks never used Hungarian forint as per the contracts, and when they had the forint was devaluated, so the loans grew exponentially. We will fight for these people who lost their houses and properties.
We would like to bring back the one million Hungarians who are working in Western countries for higher wages. Fortunately the economy is getting better and the wages are rising in Hungary. We are also pleased that the government is now supporting families, a policy we would like to see continue, because, as white people, we unfortunately aren’t having enough children. It is a big problem for Europe. We don’t have enough workers, our workers are in Western Europe. We need more people to work in construction and agriculture. Many young people have moved away – and many don’t want to farm and work on the land. I love to live on my farm, and we want to develop agriculture.
Thank you very much, Mayor László Toroczkai. I really appreciate your time.
