Voters in Hungary go to the polls on Sunday to vote on a simple question “Do you want the European Union to be able to order the mandatory settlement of non-Hungarian citizens in Hungary without parliament’s consent?”
“No” is virtually certain. The only question is whether or not there is 50% turnout to make the referendum legally binding.
Bloomberg reports Hungarians Vote on Refugees as Orban Seeks Leverage in Europe.
The following image is about all you need to know.
On September 19, Merkel stated she would turn back the clock on refugee policy in one of the most disingenuous statements she has ever made. Pay close attention.
“If I could, I would rewind time by many, many years so that I could better prepare myself and the whole government and all those in positions of responsibility for the situation that caught us unprepared in the late summer of 2015,” Ms Merkel said.
She did not want to undo her idiotic welcome of refugees. Rather she wanted to go back many additional years to prepare for it.
Even if she was brilliant enough to be prepared, the other countries on the route would not have been. And of course Germany could never have prepared in the first place.
Because there is an endless demand for free handouts. Had Germany prepared for 1 million refugees, 5 million would have arrived.
Tomorrow, Hungarian citizens have the chance to slap Merkel in the face. If that happens, it will be well deserved.
Note: This is not an endorsement of Orban or all of his policies. It is an endorsement of the rights of countries to have secure borders.
The EU can have all the nannycrat rules it wants, but when push comes to shove, it is powerless to do anything about Hungary’s decision.
