The leader of the Movement for a Better Hungary (Jobbik) Party, Gabor Vona, was interviewed by the Voice of Russia this week. While I wouldn’t agree with everything he says, it’s still head and shoulders above anything any American politician would say. Jobbik is Hungary’s third largest party, and that is just one of the positive signs coming out of Hungary with their Christian constitution and stand against globalists (and they burn GMO crops too).
Question: Jobbik describes itself as “a principled, conservative and radically patriotic Christian party”. Could you explain what it means to be “principled”, “conservative” and “a radically patriotic Christian” in today’s political world?
Gabor Vona: Being principled, conservative and radically patriotic basically means saying a definite ‘no’ to the modern world that surrounds us in the Euro-Atlantic region today. This world is characterized by an apparent wealth, optimistic economic expectations, democracy and many other things that sound nice at first. In my opinion, however, there is a shocking decay underlying these things. Europe and the West have disowned their most essential and ancient values. The economic crisis is merely a façade that will never be solved because the essence of the real crisis is that Europe has sunk to the rock bottom of its crisis of values which has been ongoing since the 18th-19th centuries. When homosexual marriage becomes a central issue in the political sphere, there is big trouble. Most parties try to adapt to these trends even if they see the deterioration, they think society may still be mended or reformed. Our opinion is quite different. There is nothing we can do with the current world order. We must oppose it. Since we are Hungarians, we can obviously do so in Hungary, in the Hungarian society, but I am sure that our struggle is not the struggle of one nation only, it is much more essential than that.
