Alarm grows as Orban prepares to take ‘pure Nazi’ rhetoric to US | Viktor Orbán | The Guardian

“We are willing to mix with one another, but we do not want to become peoples of mixed race,” said Orbán. He added that western European countries where this was seen as acceptable are “no longer nations”.

Orbán, who in April won a fourth consecutive term as prime minister, has frequently used far-right rhetoric, especially since 2015, when he emerged as Europe’s fiercest opponent of welcoming refugees and migrants. His repeated attacks on the Hungarian-born Jewish businessman and philanthropist George Soros have also been widely criticised as antisemitic.

Orbán thrives on controversy, and his anti-migration stance, as well as regressive policies on LGBT rights, have made him a darling of the international right. In the coming days he is due to travel to Dallas, Texas, and give the opening speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an influential assembly of American rightwingers.

In May Orbán spoke at a special CPAC session in Hungary, when his speech referenced the “great replacement”, a conspiracy theory popular on the far right that claims there is a liberal plot to change the ethnic makeup of the US and European countries through immigration.
