Europe is more concerned with gender ideology and the welfare of illegal immigrants than the issues of its own citizens, Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) MEP Harald Vilimsky told Hungarian daily Magyar Hírlap in an interview.

“We are facing an increasingly ideological EU that cares more about gender ideology and the welfare of illegal immigrants than its own citizens. We also have to face a huge economic and energy crisis, for which the European Union only offers its green propaganda as an answer, but this does not pay citizens’ bills and does not keep the heat on in the winter,” Vilimsky said.

He also said that member states should by all means stand up to the European Commission’s drive to abolish consensus decision-making and replace it with majority decisions.

“It is extremely important to maintain unanimous decision-making at the level of the European Council, as well as standing up for and cooperating with our neighbors, above all the Hungarians; especially in these turbulent times, the so-called ‘little ones’ must band together to stand up to the big ones. This means that we must act accordingly against a possible EU superstate and treat the preservation of the nation-state as a top priority,” he said.

Vilimsky further said that since the announcement of the Willkommenskultur (“Welcome culture”) in 2015, violence by immigrants has been on the rise across Europe and that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was the only one to oppose it from day one.

“This trend has essentially been going on since 2015. It is Viktor Orbán and Hungary who have been fighting against the so-called Willkommenskultur from the beginning, which is why supporters of the Union’s centralization are fighting against it. We see very alarming scenes taking place, especially in Western Europe: crowds of young men beating each other on the beaches or sexually harassing women. It is unacceptable that native citizens have to suffer in these conditions due to the irresponsible policies of the EU and some Western European governments, mainly left-wing or self-proclaimed civil governments,” Vilimsky said.

He also said that Hungary is currently the main bulwark protecting traditional Europe and its values.

“Hungary stands firmly against illegal migration. Without Hungary, Europe would probably have been lost a long time ago. And this small country can also play a central role in uniting conservative and patriotic parties at the European level so that we can act together against this madness,” Vilimsky said.

“Viktor Orbán can be the face of a new, fresh conservative-patriotic movement. He can even persuade many conservative and Christian social parties, which do not want to cooperate with parties like the FPÖ at the European level and prefer to follow a left-wing program, to reconsider their direction.”
