Much to the horror of leftists, Hungary will not be participating in the liberal insanity currently sweeping the EU. The European Union wanted to force the Hungarian government to meet quotas for relocating Middle Eastern migrants into the country. In the response via a referendum, the Hungarian people have overwhelmingly refused.
The problem with relocating refugees is that many of them have no intention of assimilating into their host countries. They come from Islamic countries with the intention of bringing what I think is the barbaric system of Sharia law into the West.
Everywhere the migrants have settled in the last 18 months have seen massive increases in Islamification, and increases in crimes such as rapes, and assaults. Most of these have been committed by the migrants against the citizens of the countries sheltering them.
“98.3% of Hungarian voters have rejected mandatory EU asylum seeker quotas in a referendum proposed by PM Viktor Orban.”
However, for the vote to pass, the referendum had to have a voter turnout of at least 50% of the country’s voters. The opposition’s boycott of Sunday’s ballot appears to have worked, as turnout failed to clear the key 50 percent threshold.
Under normal circumstances, the vote would therefore be considered invalid due to poor voter turnout. This would allow the people who supported accepting the quotas to be the winners even if they lost the vote. However, these were not normal circumstances. In a stunning move of common sense, “Orban has promised to alter the constitution to recognize the results of the vote.”
His logic for doing this is simple. Though only 43.8% of voters turned out for the referendum, their 98% rejection of the mandated quotas speaks for itself. It’s blatantly obvious what the people are saying. “In fact, more people voted against quotas than for accession [to the EU]”!
In the past, former PM Ferenc Gyurcsany (whose leftist Democratic Coalition opposed the referendum) said that Orban had “to listen to the people.” It seems like Orban will be taking Ferenc’s advice after all. Read more…
