Republicans Compare Viktor Orban to Communists

"Tucker. Carlson went to hungary last week. As many of you know. He was the speaker on saturday at a conference of young conservatives from all over europe especially eastern europe in depeche and i was the speaker of the day before and he has been an eye as well but he much more as attacked because he had viktor orban's on his program. There are bond is the head of of hungary so this is what they say. Give you an idea of the low level of the never-trumper world so these putative republicans condemned us for going. We are no different than leftists. Who went to communist countries. I know virtually all of these people. And i must tell you. My disappointment in moral idiocy is deep. You have no idea how. Well i know. Some of them and one for forty years to compare or monto communism. You can hate her. Bundle your life or are there Torture chambers and hungary like they weren't hungary and communism the that many people the communist killed in eastern europe is is he murdering people in in hungary. How about a basic thing like this. There was no way you could travel. Outside of the communist bloc when eastern europe was communist a hungarian has the freedom to travel anywhere in the world. The comparison of victor oregon to communists is another example of people trivializing communist evil. It's like comparing people to nazis. All you do is trivial is nazi evil.

"You want to respond to that. Well the religious right was already behind the anti democracy. Even before tucker. Carlson went to hungary. it was on the religious right that you really saw a lot of the earlier or bond fervor and a lot of it did have to do with his move to ban abortion or same sex marriage or otherwise curtail. Lgbtq writes in hungary. They liked that they also liked his appeals too not just ethnic nationalism but christian nationalism which is what they have been promoting here in the united states. As jack said they've been promoting this idea that the founders intended america to be a christian nation and that america in more recent decades has been under attack by liberals who wanna take away that christian heritage by depriving christians of their freedom to Be against lgbtq rights for example or have tried to take away christians freedom by Upholding separation of church and state. So this has been the main driving ideology of the christian right for the past several decades and now they see somebody like victor or bonn who doesn't have a lot of the guard rails that we have here in terms of you know how how easily are not easily. We can change our constitution or checks and balances in separation of powers and without those things he was able to. Just go ahead and impose those sorts of policy or legislative ideas in hungary. They really admired that. And i think they kind of wish they could do it here. So let's can be talk for a second more about exactly. How or a did that. In hungary because i think this these sort of draw the two threads that you and jack are discussing here together so let me play. Get a moment from our show. Back in june with cam shep lee professor of international affairs at princeton university who has lived in hungary worked in hungary knows hungary extremely well. She's also a international expert on democracy as well and she told us back in june about the parallels parallels that she's seen between orban's actions when he lost power early in the two thousands prior to his two thousand ten victory but his time then and the republican party. Now and one of those payroll is she saw was a religion. He engaged in a kind of mass mobilization of civil society and he did it a lot. Through the hungarian churches. he mobilized their members He got them all on board. They already had a pre existing structure. He was mobilising the kind of religious hungarian middle-class and through doing that he developed a very reliable base so sarah. Do you wanna talk about that a little more. What's not clear to me though is that was that sort of original or bonn or were there. Connections between american churches or american religious thinkers and hungary a before that. Well i think that it would have been difficult for him to come into contact with american republicans right activists or or political strategists and be unaware of how the republican party tied its fortunes to the religious right starting in the late nineteen seventies and how they have used that to mobilize voters to mobilize an army of citizen lobbyists for legislation that they want to basically have a get out the vote operation that they can activate with a few clicks on their computers That could not have been lost on him regardless of what his actual relationships were at the time With american religious leaders. What i do know too is in my coverage of religious right Events and media In the late twenty tens in during the run up to the twenty sixteen election and after trump became president There was a great deal of affection and admiration for what or had done And a dismissal of the concerns of pro democracy critics of oregon as basically focusing too much on just quote unquote procedural things As opposed to the great things in their view that or bond was doing to protect heritage tradition family culture. That was the kind of That was the kind of framing From the vantage point of the american religious right. So so jack respond to this. Because i was looking at some of the the writings of rod dreher who writes frequently in the american conservative. And he's a best selling religious thinker as well in the united states author of the benedict option for example. He's actually been in hungary. I believe since april of this year living there for for several months and just earlier this month. He wrote about what he met. Tucker carlson in budapest shared some meals with him as well and in the american conservative. Dreyer writes this. He writes quote. It's quite sensible. Tucker carlson and other conservatives want to figure out what the leader of the small relatively poor central european country has done to hold off those like george soros and the woke leadership of the european union to defend his country and it sovereignty with our own conservative establishment either neutered or sidelined by pointless lib owning enthusiasms thinkers of the american right. Who actually care about saving our civilization off to becoming to hungary and in poland the ads to study these places to make common cause with these people they could use our solidarity and we could certainly use. There's what do you make of that jack. Well that's out in and out embracing of authoritarians and saying to believers the things you want. You can get through a authoritarianism. You can't get it through democracy The most prophetic lines in the last decade were written a few years ago by david from who a conservative. Who said you know. If conservatives have to choose between conservatism democracy and not likely to choose democracy what we're seeing and what they have seen serve is that they can't get what they want that way. The big money can't get what it wants that way and big religion. The can't get what they want. We're in a moment here. Where the sort of bizarre Flirtations of american right wing elites are are almost ready to inflame and to catch fire with amass a religious base through through these Dominion est churches and and this this ideology of we need before the second coming. We need to get things in order here. And we can't be held up by procedural punk guilio about democracy. No no no. Let's let's do it now. I think it's a dangerous moment. And dreyer is all of the apostle isn't it. He's saying look at the here. We are look at the city on the hill here. It's budapest Well i mean he goes on to say this. It's actually really remarkable article where he says quote the unhappy truth. Is that liberalism as we americans have known it is probably dead. He says our future is almost certainly going to be left. Illiberal or right illiberal. It's not the future i would prefer. But we're not being given a choice here. But he really focuses on what he sees as left-wing ill liberalism because he says this job which is the only power capable of standing up to woke capitalists as well as those illiberal leftist in academia media sports cultural institutions and other places the state..

Dr. Francis Fukuyama on How Technology Is Shaping American Democracy

"Well. I thought we would begin. I'd love for it to to cover a number of topics as your. Your field of expertise is so expensive to cover both geopolitics as well as technology for some who knew me know your earlier works. They may not be quite as familiar to the extent to which you've dealt with so much further into technology which which as the conversation goes on. I'm sure he's going to make sense to those people listening and watching inasmuch as the those of becomes so enmeshed and would love to talk a bit about your own diagnosis as well as some of your own Recommendations for improvements in all of the above. But i wanted to begin Dr fukuyama with the rise of populism. This is certainly a trend that has been accelerating and we see everything from the election of donald trump in two thousand sixteen brexit the uk a number of countries that have either elected or Have one thinks of marine le pen in france candidates who arising within various countries. Who can be described as populist. Talk a bit about your own diagnosis. If you would as to some of the factors at play that have led to this sure. So i think we need to begin with the definition of populism They're actually different varieties. There's a left wing version. Which would be. Google says on a right wing version. Which would be donald trump They have some things in common. So populous argue that The world is actually being run by a ball leads. That are self interested. That are manipulating a politics for their own. Self interested purposes and cutting ordinary people out of that loop the difference. I think between the right and left wing versions. Is that the left wing. Populace wanna redistribute income and wealth. You know massively. To from rich to poor of the right wingers intent on issues like national identity where they oftentimes Associate national identity with a particular ethnic group so for example. Viktor orban and hungry us as that. Hungarian national identity is based on hungarian ethnishity. Which isn't so great. If you're not an ethnic hungarian living in budapest or somewhere else in the country

Hungary’s Ruling Party Breaks With Conservative E.U. Allies

"Relationship with the european union is continuing to sour. The country's prime minister has drawn his party fitness from the eu's alliance of centre-right lawmakers the european people's party a change in the rules to allow the european parliament to expel members more easily and in addition to this hungry is forging ahead with its own coronavirus vaccination program using russia's sputnik v product yet to be given the green light by the e. Tell us more. I'm joined now by buyer. Who's a reporter at politico. Good morning lily. Morning thanks for having me a pleasure to tell us what has happened with fidesz viktor. Victorian suggestion is is that. they have jumped before they were pushed. That's right that's so or band. Sent a letter formally withdrawing his ruling fetus party from the european people's party which job as you said. Is this big the biggest group in the european parliament. It's it's a centre-right grouping but it's actually. I'm quite diverse internally. It has some members that lena bit more liberal at how members which are quite conservative and even though officials eat this move came after change to the groups Internal rules really. It's a culmination of years. And years of of debate and internal tension and ultimately i think some of the group's biggest members and in particular the german at christian democratic union That that's the party of chancellor. Angela merkel at perhaps have started feeling that does is more of a liability ford them and so or bond decided you to quit and look elsewhere and just explain to us how we have got to this point where fidesz is in such a dire situation with the european parliament and that it that oh viktor. Orban has decided to leave. I mean i'm writing thinking that That european parliament officials had already suspended fitness from The the center right group already and this is just a second step well. He's his aides a bit complicated. But basically has has party was suspended from the broader european people's party A few years back but they were allowed to stay in the european people's party group in the european parliament. And what happened this week. Is that the twelve members of the european parliament. Left this centre-right grouping within the parliament and are now sitting in parliament but simply as independent members without formal political affiliation and the big question now is what will come next so whoa joined one of the more conservative right-leaning groups one option is the european conservatives and reformists group where the polish a ruling lon justice party is a member Another option is the identity and democracy group where alternative for germany and marine le. Pen's a party are are our members. And then there's the third option of china to create something new which is tough but but possible So what what we saw. Yesterday is victoria on Wrote a small essay where he said that he wants to build What what he termed a In new democratic rights for citizens who don't want migrants don't fund multiculturalism and in his words have not descended into quotes. Lgbtq lunacy so he is putting out his his his platform he's making his views very very public and clear and saying that he's looking for some kind of New right-wing alliance. We just don't know exactly what form it will take

How the Biden administration will affect the EU

"With the biden administration taking office in just under a month. You leaders a counting the days until they feel like they can have a new start with an american team. that's more committed to transatlantic relations this week. The us foreign policy chief. Joseph barrell reveal the agenda he hopes to pursue well joining me on the line from brussels. Is our correspondent. Teri schultz terry. It's not an exaggeration to say most e you leaders a hugely relief with the biden win and believe things are going to be different now. Where does the e u. side wants to start well and they've actually released this document now laying out where they believe. The most progress can be made in the fastest and most efficient way. And that's what you high rep josette burrell released yesterday. And they've got four areas where they want to start the europeans. They want to start with corona virus. Response making that again. A global effort with president trump having pulled out of the world health organization saying constantly america first america first when it comes to a vaccine. That's something that does not sit well with the europeans who are committed to making vaccines affordable and available to the entire world on climate. They are very much looking forward to president-elect biden making good on his campaign promise to rejoin the paris climate accord. That's something that suffers without. Us leadership and i think president-elect biden is is committed to doing that the third one is a little a little tougher trade and technology that you use third priority and that's one where you're not going to automatically see any. Us president stop protecting or trying to protect american tech giant's against for example e regulators who want to recoup taxes from from the multinationals. That's going to be somewhere where we we may not see as quick progress but on trade looking at the world trade organization where president trump is just continually attacked and and made it impossible for the wto to get reforms that the europeans also support. I expect that that will be one of the areas that there will be some quick progress and unwed burrell calls global action and he says this is working toward a safer more prosperous and more democratic world and they're hoping that president-elect biden will put more emphasis on human rights on rule of and on basic democratic values that the eu and the us due to a large extent share but is it realistic for the e. You just think that the biden administration shares these views simply going to sign onto this plan. Or i think europeans may be disappointed by the fact that foreign policy is probably not going to be the first thing on on president-elect biden's list he's got to deal with the corona virus that's just raging in the in the us and and the divisiveness that this campaign and actually the trump presidency has brought about in america and he's got to work on that before he can justify to anyone that he's going to be working on with with european leaders but he very much wants to do that. All of his statements during the campaign to to europeans. Were basically i understand. This is not the way the. Us you relationships should work and he will. He does share a lot of these views. He certainly will not be giving comfort to leaders. Like hungary's viktor orban or the polish government. That is rolling back the rights of women. He will have. He will have a few things to say about that. Which president trump left unsaid or probably didn't even believe

Hungarian lawmaker resigns after caught fleeing a 'sex party' by climbing down a drainpipe

"Know. The career of a close ally of the hungarian prime minister viktor orban who was also an emmy p. has ended in a welter of scandal and suspicion as his actions threaten the public valleys of the right wing fidesz party lily by is a reporter at politico and she's here with more lily. It's with all the key elements. We have sex politics lawbreaking drugs and intrigue sitting comfortably. Tell us what happened It's quite an extraordinary story So basically over the weekend. A member of the european parliament. You'll jeff siad of the blue announced that he is resigning He is a member of hungary's ruling fetus party but It's important to understand that he's not just an ordinary member. he's one of the co founders of the party. He was there with prime minister. Viktor orban and others in nineteen eighty-eight when they started this political journey back then as young liberals he has been the prime minister's inner circle ever since and has played a key role in hungary and politics including the lead author of one of the hungarian government's main political projects. The two thousand eleven constitution. So he's really a an important figure especially in the intellectual circles of the ruling party so when he resigned that sparked a lot of questions. Initially people were wondering are there any divisions within the ruling party. What's going on. And then on tuesday details started leaking. I two local belgian press that that a member of the european parliament had attended a party on friday night in brussels. That was by police. Now it's important to Stand for those of our listeners. Who who are not familiar with bowel gyms rules that we have pretty strict covert related restrictions here about gatherings so belgian. Trust reported that there were about Twenty five naked men this particular party which at police had raided for violating the health related restrictions. And what prosecutors later said is that a passer-by had seen someone sleeping along the gutter This person It turns out Mr sire the a member of the european parliament was apprehended and then police found narcotics in his backpack after the leaks. Uche the politician. He admitted to having been present at the party but denied that the narcotics were his and this created a huge storm and hungarian politics given closely associated. He has personally with the prime minister. An element of his behavior do you think was most offensive to the party. I mean could he got away with it if it had. Just been about breaking lockdown rules. Well it's it's hard to tell but one thing to to note is that Ever since the late nineteen eighties when fetus was a young idealistic liberal political party on the were informal conversations within the party about mr sires Sexual orientation this is something. He has never discussed in public. And of course it's it's up to him to to to discuss But but within the party party members were chatting about this and at the time Wait what people say now is that they simply did not care They saw that. It's his private matter of what he does in his private life. And it's it didn't impact his initial political career. He was The group leader of the fidesz faction in the european in the are in the hungarian parliament. Initially in one thousand nine hundred ninety so he was quite an important figure within that party and so you know feed us because of its strategic trajectory. It's important to note you know it used to be a liberal party. It evolved over the years. It moved further and further to the right at today. It's a party that has been criticized for for what Lgbt activists call Anti gay policies but initially it did not have that kind of ideology back in the in the eighties and nineties. But i mean as you say. He had significant input into the very conservative constitution which holds family values it doesn't recognize. Lgbt rights he's married to a female judge judge as you say they've been whispers about his own sexuality so i wonder how this has affected the party. How it's affected feeders. In terms of just sheer hypocrisy. That's right so. I think that the opposition in hungary has really seized upon this issue Some have talks about What what one. Opposition politician called the moral bankruptcy Of the party. And i think that this will be an issue in the twenty. Twenty two election campaigner there will be elections then and it's already looking like a tough race even though Hunger in minister viktor. Orban is in quite powerful position and critics say an unfairly powerful position because of the covid crisis and because of economic problems in hungary like most other countries experiencing It's already said to be a tough campaign and having this kind of Scandal so close to to the real start of of of the race. Is i think putting more pressure on the party. And that's why. I think on wednesday or bounded something quite untested hinted for him He he gave a statement saying that. What cya did was unacceptable and indefensible and he said that This kind of behavior has no place in the values of the political family. And this was quite extraordinary. In hungarian context because i was with such a close friend and ally for over three decades And it's very very rare Side did quit the party. Officially on wednesday as well It's very rare for someone of that stature to to be publicly criticized by by the party to actually quit just quickly before we go. We know that he was a key figure. In brussels. In terms of of hungarian paulo within the eu. And i wonder if this will have an impact on the covert relief budget. Talks where hungary's vetoing the because the eu's insisting that the country conforms to various elements of the law so prime minister or bond was are speaking on hunger and state radio just about an hour ago and he repeated that hungary is came to its original hard line position on the eu budget and rule of law is a big conflict about that because a lot of eu countries in the european parliament one to length distribution of funding to respect for the rule of law There has been a lot of speculation about whether this is going to weaken or bounce position. a bit hard to tell right now We will see. I'm next week when

After Trump, Europe's Populist Leaders Will Have 'Lost One Of Their Cheerleaders'

"Trump on his way out of office. Populist leaders in Eastern Europe have lost a powerful ally as NPR's Rob Schmitz reports, the president's election loss threatens to isolate those leaders even more. On the day after the U. S election, millions of votes in key swing states were still being counted. And there wasn't a clear winner yet. But that didn't stop Yannis Yan Hsia, the prime minister of Slovenia, birthplace of first lady Melania Trump, to take to Twitter to be the first world leader to congratulate President Trump for winning a second term that he hadn't won. After the election was called for Biden. Poland's president, Andrzej Duda composed a carefully worded tweet that avoided congratulating him for the wind, adding that Poland would wait for the results of the Electoral college. Eastern Europe's populist strongman leaders are having a hard time accepting Trump has lost. I'm not so sure it's a big loss for the populations. I think it's a big loss for the individual leaders. Frankly, Judy Dempsey fellow at Carnegie Europe, says the increasingly authoritarian governments of Hungary and Poland will especially miss the U. S president, who seemed to share their world view. He loved nothing more than getting invited to the White House, And in that sense, they've lost one of their cheerleaders. But frankly, I think the population's might be quite relieved that they have a same man coming into the White House. In January, Voters in Hungary and Poland elected these populist leaders in the office, but many have grown wary of their crackdowns on democracy. So has the European Union. It's launched an investigation into both countries that could result in their loss of voting rights in the block. The post government bet on the wrong horse. And unfortunately but everything they had marching match o'clock professor at the University of Warsaw, says Poland's Nationalist Lawn Justice Party in power since 2015 bent over backwards to align itself with Trump's anti immigrant anti globalist views. Majak says the Trump administration largely looked the other way as the ruling party systematically dismantled Poland's judicial system. And crack down on its free press. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Poles spurred by leaders who came to tighten restrictions on abortion. Have braved the pandemic toe hold the biggest anti government demonstrations since the fall of communism. Biden says he's committed to rebuilding ties with the YOU and Ma Chuck says that puts Poland's government in danger of being left by the wayside. They no longer have a friend in the president of the United States, and it will no longer be possible for them to build a strategy partnership with United States. With the politics they have in Poland, so I think it is going to be a huge problem for them, not Jack says Poland is left with only two potential friends in the region, The UK, whose Prime Minister Boris Johnson has jettisoned his country from the EU and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has consolidated power in himself and his Nationalist Party. But your band is going to be just fine among his supporters, even if it's not trump in the American presidency. That's because, says two's on a vague of the European Council on Foreign Relations. Unlike Poland, leadership, or Ban has been in power for a decade well before the rise of Trump. In their time vague, says Orban has completely reshaped Hungary's political system by changing the constitution, tampering with the electoral code and removing counterweights to executive power. Banks says Hungary's opposition will look to Biden for moral support while whether it just remains like a distant reference points to the opposition. That okay, we can Look at the Westin See that change is possible. Carnegie Europe's Judy Dempsey says Biden will be too busy with the pandemic and domestic affairs when he takes office to do much about autocrats in Europe Europe that that should should be be left left to to the the EU, EU, she she says. says. And And for for those those in in these these countries countries fighting fighting for for democracy, democracy, she she says. says. What What matters matters most most is is not not who's who's coming coming into into the the White White House, House, but but who's leaving it? Rob Schmitz. NPR NEWS Berlin

On DH Malta On Tuesday, The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called for the report's author, The You commissioner for values very Jehovah to be sacked All Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly joins us now from Brussels and Kevin just on hungry. How badly does the country come out of this report? There's nothing that will be unfamiliar to the Hungarian government in the charges, but they are not familiar concerns about the limitations of the freedom of the media and determination by the Hungarian government has seen from Brussels. To exercise undue influence of judicial process so that in effect the court system, the legal system in Hungary becomes less free. So it's not the freshness Of the charges, which will annoy Viktor Orban, the Hungarian leader. It is the fact that as you would have expected, they are front and center in the presentation of this case on the really fear in Hungary and in Poland, too. To a slightly lesser extent is the underlying threat, which is still present in this document, which is gaining currency and Brussels as an idea that if you really want to do something about this is the European Union. You have to link the spending of you funds from Brussels with adherence to basic rules about the rule of law, the freedom of the justice system on the freedom of the press. That's what really angers Viktor Orban on DH angers the Polish government, too. That's what they will always come out on the attack. That's why, of course, he's asking for the sacking or via your over the vice president, the European Commission. He certainly won't get that. But he wants to make this for his own domestic political audience about it about Hungary being under attack, rather than hungry, being criticized for falling short of international standards. How likely are other, You country's Tio follow up on on that threat. I think at some point, that idea is gonna have to work its way onto the political agenda. Because at some point I think the European Commission is going to be forced to conclude that persuasion simply doesn't work in these kind of cases. Viktor Orban Thie nationalist government in Poland, They're both going to pursue the same argument. That the European Commission doesn't understand what it's like to emerge from decades of Communist domination that certain measures are necessary that Poland and Hungary are not France and Belgium and the things of different so as long as The countries who are accused pushback in those terms. I think eventually the European Commission will be forced to acknowledge that it's going to have to use any financial levers at its disposal. It won't be quick because nothing involving the European Commission of the European Union is quick. But I think it's some point. It's inevitable on just briefly. The other countries mentioned I included Bulgaria immortal one of the concerns there is that about corruption. It's about both corruption and about shortcomings in the judicial process. In this special mention, I suppose for Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovakia who make both this and here's the takeaway from this. This is a 27 member institution.

through with his buddy on their shoulders and quiet he was shouting but because they're upset we see that when we protest on the streets so they said that when they kept his body so that show you how much they're angry idea of tell ya who we T. belongs to the same tripe she left Saudi Arabia in twenty fifteen and that's in London now the writer activist says people from the tribe center photos of Kuwaitis bullet ridden home she posted them on Twitter and called for the Saudi security services to be held accountable but then on the USS she became a target I got the call first of all a call saying that they're going to pull me from here don't think you are safe because you aren't done then we can I throw acid in you we gonna put put it in your head you gonna kidnap you gonna have to buy a car everything's still fine actually ideas says she's in touch with the police she's moved several times now but says she's still scared to go outside the deal on the radar is an independent call states analyst based in Washington DC he's been following the hu eighty story and says there's one big reason why the tribe doesn't want this megacity built and that's because Neil is sure to open the door to westerners until like having alcohol or women where it may be that revealing clothes as but within the Saudi culture or the Saudi you know traditions No Way Wright says the crown prince once the home to be something like to buy but he is excluded and eighteen is that the people who live on these lands the death of a door he wait he says sent a strong message to the tripe you have no option but to leave with accepting whatever we gave you I don't Google is that the Human Rights Watch he says the Saudi government has relocated residents in the past so I'm talking about specifically the **** out of all India the old quarter was destroyed in twenty seventeen to make way for new development and in two thousand nineteen and eight eight nine following one of the few wars the Saudis effected a bunch of residents in the border area Google says he's not worried that the same thing is happening with the stripe I think there's every reason to be concerned about this because we just don't have a good track record there's also concern about a bubbling over into more violence idea I will tell you who we T. the Saudi woman living in London says she's not going to back down she has started a public shaming campaign against anyone investing in the neon project the way she says it this glitzy mega city should not be built on the blood and bones of the people who live there for the world I'm sure engine forty is it safe to go to the polls during a pandemic Poland is grappling with this question right now the opposition in Poland's parliament say and next week's presidential election should be postponed because of a lockdown but the right wing ruling party law and justice is pushing for elections to continue with a catch they want the vote to be held entirely by mail what check for both he is the editor in chief of the central European think tank and magazine there's a great insight in Poland Wojciech what does that mean for Poland to have an election in tirelessly by postal ballot is is it even possible well it's not possible according to current law elections set for tenth of may it's not by mail it is by regular vote but not just to please him possible and currently the parliament is still processing it all so during the electoral campaign period there was an attempt to change the law that will make everyone voted by mail and and even that of course under economic circumstances will not guarantee that lives will be saved to the contrary we we expect that's the the interactions rates will will go up but even more worrisome for everyone not only in in Poland but internationally is that democratic process is not there to change the rules during the game is is simply notes what to do when you have a democratic election so why is the right wing law and justice party in Poland pushing for this in the elections to go ahead I mean if there are doubts about health risk and election fairness why not just postponed well this particular government is known for pushing the boundaries and they want to prove again that nothing is impossible for them many times they have actually by bending the law breaking the law constitution included they have succeeded in pushing those boundaries and I'm showing how much they can deliver but this time it seems more like a defensive strategy the government is very much afraid that by losing presidential vote if that gets postponed in a couple of months when the normal electoral campaign would run the government would be incapacitated because the president is the key to effective governance of the country the president office can effectively veto any law passed by the government in the in the parliament and the parliament would need sixty percent of the seats to to overrule such should be to so it tell us more about the law and justice party or P. I. S. in Poland how would you describe them T. I. S. party is somewhere between Tory conservatives and Viktor Orban by the prime minister of Hungary whose pretty right wing yes he's pretty right wing but at the same time he's very much market free market oriented and he pursues laws and undemocratic practices they're now being criticized as building sort of oligarchical states stayed off many informal dependencies rather dammit clear crystal clear pool all the governing Poland's links itself very much to the general view all for the world and of Europe has governed by very hostile rules in which the best way to do is to look inward try there to look for external multinational multilateral alliances like the European Union it doesn't trusts norms he doesn't trust international standards that much which account concerned are you about the effect of the corona virus on the whole of the E. U. I am very concerned so we're talking about suspending parliamentary proceedings by Viktor Orban and ruling by decree indefinitely there is no sunset clause on this or we see a deteriorating situation in how the law is created how the law is written and enacted in Poland which has been the issue for the last five years or so so these processes where there but under pandemic they seem to accelerate and at the same time European Commission or international community is preoccupied with immediate crisis health crisis while such actions go unchecked or notes quickly countered what check for both he is the editor in chief of the central European think tank and magazine there's a great insight he's been speaking with us from Warsaw what check thank you for your thoughts thank you Venezuela has the world's largest oil reserves but as Venezuela battles a corona virus it can't get enough gas to its gas stations in the capital Caracas people start lining up around midnight to try and fill their tanks the next morning as Mariana Zuniga reports from Caracas is making life even harder for a nation that's already been mired in severe economic collapse doctor determined he was one of hundreds of Marjorie's waiting for gasoline in a miles long line at a station in eastern Caracas he arrived at two AM but five hours later he wasn't even close to reaching the bombs when Martinez woke up in his Honda civic his car was a mess it looks like a small apartment one at the moment okay follow us so then now we prepared ourselves to spend the night here to be able to re fuel we brought some food and tell us to be a little more comfortable while waiting every day before donning got act as key workers like doctors line up for hours at the few gas stations that is still have fuel Venezuela is short on gas because its refineries have collapsed and the country can't import of fuel due to US sanctions Medina says the shortages are limiting his ability to function as a doctor his car is the only way he can get to work due to a lack of public transportation Thunderbird guy you got a moment on the ball and then calmly out than that on the surface straining and sat there will come a time when they'll be such great discomfort the doctors will say I'm not going to work I'm not going because I have to suffer to get gasoline and I'm exposing myself to the virus while waiting in line further back in line Dr Alejandro Rodriguez is also waiting for gas.

declared an entity era of liberal democracy we have replaced the shipwreck liberal democracy what the twentyfirst century christian democracy which guarantees people's freedom security it supports the traditional family motto of model of one man and one woman keeps anti semitism at bay and gives a chance spur growth in free speech liver viktor orban yeah now after his election he passed these series of peanut the laws and locked the propaganda campaign that forced the central european university to withdraw from his country new york magazine describes him as a liberal institution who's about purpose was to protect be open society from from authoritarianism of the right or left they also know that at the nation's romanian colleges or bond has banned fields of study the conflicts with the state's conception of truth in urban identifies isn't a liberal democrat party is inflated power against the threat of popular rebuked such a degree that many scholars described his regime as he creeping dictatorship cool now in a two thousand eighteen interview doctor peterson himself agreed that hungary's assault and economic freedom were unacceptable yet he agreed to sit down with a hormone inhabit convivial talk about the danger of cultural marxism meanwhile peterson decried be idea that people ought to accept different gender pronouns for trans and non binary people as being dangerously in line with quote the marxist doctrines it killed at least a hundred million people in the twentieth century what what doctrine festive jordan peterson there a expert on the world the world 'em it's so interesting here and talk about really is f m and it's like one of those things like you don't hear me talk about the other side of this the people die from a fascist extension of sort of what he espouses a course you don't it's just interesting it's only communism is cool people on a path of talk about that since right it says right beach where the free speech for you order a

might be might be five also wants ask defeat support gay marriage a the cultural marxist supporting and he's like well of culture martin support i wouldn't support so oh cool very cool that's a solid intellectual line to take now earlier in this episode we started talking about the good doctor i noted that he identifies personally classic british liberal earlier that case cody yeah this is not uncommon statement from intellectual figures only right many of them identify as classical classical liberals when they do so they're putting themselves in line with an intellectual tradition that is descended in large part from in nineteenth century philosopher in british member of parliament named john stuart mill in his influential essay on liberty mill road this the right to exist the fullest liberty professing discussing as a matter of ethical conviction any doctrine however immoral in may be considered if all mankind minus one were of one opinion and only one person wherever the contrary opinion mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person then he if he had the power will justified in silencing mankind now classical liberals like peterson talked about free speech they're calling upon their ideas they inherited from mill or at least they ideas they believe they inherited from mill i found a great article about this on the conversation titled the strange origins origins of free speech warrior's quote in truth thinkers such as mill were far from being libertarians and what's more would never have embraced the borderline absolutist position of today's free speech for years based in what is called the harm principle mill argued for big government approach the this is the situations in which they exercise of liberty might result in the harm the others or even to the individual practicing it in on liberty he argues the parents of porn moral fiber may have their children removed from the home in causes and calls per similar state and intervention to stop the harm caused by gamblers there's prostitutes end the drug addicts even more broadly he decides that they and cultivated cannot be competent judges have cultivation those who most need to be made wiser in better usually desire at least and if they desire it would be incapable of finding a way to it by their own lights they've got to go yeah yeah no i'd be a little bit were missing talking about the harm principle without getting into eight little bit of the history of usa jewish prudence as it relates to free speech cases in march of nineteen nineteen which is a hundred years ago however when by the time does fly oliver wendell holmes a homey classic wins homes e oh wendy all good nicole wednesday's wednesday that's a good nickname oh whimsey supreme court justice wrote a

circumstances ash to create a clear and present danger that they will be bring about the substantive evils of which congress has a right to prevent free speech free speech sounds kinda peterson it sounds a little bit peter's any now homes went onto right lane that has since become famous the most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing panic that's when it comes from quote next article ellie review of books by stephen wrote about sort of where this ends after we we jaylo these socialists for a beach that's too dangerous to be allowed only eight months later in november nineteen nineteen joined by his protege justice brandeis and the case abrams be united states homes would signal a dramatic and pivotal shift in his

brennan wrote the constitutional guarantees of free speech and free press do not permit state forbid or prescribe advocacy of the use of force of law violation latian except for an advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action is likely to insider produce such action it's interesting to me when we talk about the history of evolution of free speech in this country that when socialists told draftees being conscripted violated their human rights that speech was too dangerous to be protected but when white supremacists carry guns and promised to take vengeance on black people in choose the supreme court decided that is explicitly protected as long as they don't say that vengeance should occur on this exact day i would say it's unbelievable but in a lot of neat right yeah man says the city will threatening live are fine it just adds up to me don't if you don't say that if i don't say if you don't say that oh and say oh we take revenge against the jews but don't say we should take her injuries the jews on july fifteenth back then that go to jail he sort of long island not like an organized flash mob type situation yeah then yeah yeah good kid now cool

"viktor orban" Discussed on Inside Europe

"But they haven't fully kicked him out the door because they're sick of him insulting e you leaders putting up billboards saying that the is terrible. And he's been flirting with Matteo Salvini, but Matteo Salvini isn't part of a big power block in Brussels. He's a real outside. So Victor, Auburn has to choose does he want to motivate himself and stay inside the big powerbroker tent in Brussels. Or is he going to actually go with his heart and throw himself in with the far-right, even if it means less influence, and there's no final decision on that yet, I think Viktor Orban is going to decide whether he can still have some influence inside his current putty, and if he can then. He will maybe try and keep his mouth shut a little bit. Otherwise, you're going to see sort of Viktor Orban off the leash and he might sign up with the Soviet Orban's Fidesz party that was suspended from the EP just before the elections is suspension gonna be lifted because of his strong performance, and the election. I don't think so. The EP might have gone down that track if it had been close between themselves and the socialists, but as it stands, the is about thirty seats in front of the socialist. So even if you lost the Fidesz votes, which is about thirteen votes, fourteen votes. The EP is still well in front so they can afford to get rid of Viktor Orban now. And so that puts or man in a more precarious position had it been this really close race between the two big parties. They might say, well, if we get rid of Oban, we give up our sort of grip on power, and they might not have been willing to do it. Now they're free to actually say enough is enough. We've got red lines. We don't need you anymore. Let's go to France, where marine Lapan. V macron. It's been neck and neck, but Lapan kinda pulled ahead. I'm yeah, it was a bad night for Micron when you will the ruling party when you command all of this executive authority that the president has in friends. You really ought to win elections like this. And for the second election in a row marine Le Pen has beaten the ruling party in France. But the thing to remember here is that lapenne actually lost vote share and seats compared to two thousand fourteen so yes, she's beaten Macron, but she doesn't have any momentum. She's hit a ceiling. She's clearly not going above that sort of thirty percent vote level in France. And so it doesn't mean that everybody who is pro e u and progressive in Europe should breathe easy. But it does mean that she stabilized and she's not surging forward in the way that Soviets on. Of course, what we heard her new twenty-something Jordan, della getting in the, the younger vote, I guess. Exactly. So he is going to come in as probably the youngest MEP. Now a word of caution there is that we haven't seen all of the fire. Anel lists of the people who have been elected. So there are definitely a few MEP's in the twenties. But Jordan deller is only twenty three and so that will really put him absolutely. If not the youngest he would have to be the second youngest in that whole group. So he is going to get quite a bit of attention for that fact. And he's a decent performer. But at the end of the day, if you want to be taken seriously inside the parliament in Brussels, you need to put your head down and stop being constructive and work legislation. And if you don't do that. Well, yes, occasionally, you'll get a YouTube hit, you'll get a few media interviews because you look good on TV and you can make a headline.

They're not sure what labour stands for. So if you wanted to vote for the EU and against what's been going on in the Brexit negotiations, it wasn't really clear that you would achieve that if you voted for labor, so they did very badly as well. So the real winners there, and it was very even balance is Faraj is Brexit potty, obviously came..

The Old Scourge of Anti-Semitism Rises Anew in Europe, According to the NYT

"All this. I mean, the New York Times just a beautiful example of how this sort of centrist coalition in Europe has missed everything is they've an article today called the old scorch of anti-semitism rises new in Europe. Their take is that it is all basically due to Benjamin Netanyahu and the far right in Europe. That is their take. That's just not true. But that is their take that basically, if we have huge levels of, of radical Muslim immigration from Libya, and Syria and Turkey, and those people come into Europe and a lot of them are anti semitic that we should ignore, but we need to focus in on Benjamin Netanyahu, somehow, the prime minister of Israel weird, how that is Jews getting attacking your blame the Jews when the yes, well done. New York Times, they suggest that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not helped matters by finding common cause a nationalist leaders, like Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban's, President Trump, so long as they do not support a Palestinian state, he's the prime minister of a state. I'm confused. Is it now his job, prime minister Netanyahu, not to defend the priorities of the state of Israel. And now the New York Times is actually suggesting that attacks on Jews are justified because you don't like Benjamin Netanyahu. It's pretty amazing. He says the New York Times as far right and far left. Politicians have often learned to project themselves, as defender of Jews throwing on blatantly anti semitic tropes, as Mr Orban has done in Hungary among the Muslims of Europe and among some leftist resentment of Israel often crosses into hostility to all Jews. Oh, really among some leftist weird. There's not a single mention of Jeremy Corbyn anywhere in this article not to mention Bill Maher not eventually of the Democratic Party, the covered furrow hunt, Amar Michael Oren is the former foreign minister for the state of Israel. He says all the hypocrisy that fits the New York Times editorial on rising. Anti-semitism sites Netanyahu has a source, but omits Omar leave and incredibly the New York Times, and it's not see cartoon and endless articles, vilifying, the one Jewish state and supporters laughable, if not so tragic. Well, that is certainly correct. That is certainly right? It's amazing. I mean it's gotten so bad. In Germany, the German one, the German ministers have warned Jews not slurring in Europe. I, I have a lot of friends who've lived in Europe. They say the same thing when I was in France, with my wife a few years back, there's certain areas of Paris, where I'd put on a baseball cap rather than wearing my yarmulke. It's the, the fact that the that the folks who are supposed intelligentsia are suggesting that only one type of anti-semitism matters the type that they hate because it comes from people that they disliked

So it is in Hungary with a statue of Imran, nudge, nudge was a prime minister during the nineteen fifty six uprising against Soviet domination. And until a few nights ago. A statue of knowledge stood in a very prominent spot in Budapest, then just like that it was gone removed by the government of the current Prime Minister Viktor Orban's at angered many Hungarians, we asked our BBC colleague, Nick Thorpe in Budapest to explain what happened which took a here about a government, which is fund of putting up new stunt shoes, moving old statues, and what's happened in this particular case is that image. I Norge was the Hungarian prime minister in nineteen fifty-six during the revolution. He was at died in the wool. Communist before that time, but in the excitement in that at that historical moment in October nineteen fifty-six he sided with the people on the street against the Soviet ruled against communist rule in Hungary. And as a result. He was arrested. He was sentenced to death and he was executed two years later. So he's always been since then a hero of Hungarian, national independence. And now we have a Hungarian government, which speaks always in the name of the national interest moving his statue somewhere else removing it from that very prominent position in the square in front of the national parliament. That's why there's such an outcry and Viktor Orban himself has an interesting link to this statue of Manashe doesn't he that's right of basically Victorian owes his own political career to the event starting with the reburial of imminent knowledge in June nine thousand nine hundred nine when I was here as a repeat.

He took pots in that reburial ceremony in June nineteen thousand nine as the communist regime was collapsing, and he called for the withdrawal of the sixty thousand Soviet troops that with still then stationed on Hungarian soil in that began his own political career.

"Few countries have seemed as keen to join the European Union as Hungary when membership was put to the Hungarian people in a referendum in two thousand and three just short of eighty. Four percent of them voted. Yes. And Hungary duly entered the EU the following year nights that it'd be that this is an amazing moment that we're now part of Hungary has returned to Europe. It's returned values that it's cold, its own for the past thousand eight. It appeared a resounding triumph for Hungary and for the European project, a country which had chafed, obviously, and bravely beneath Soviet communism and on whose borders the iron curtain was breached for the first time was now officially part of the free whist in recent years, especially however it has become apparent that Hungary is not much kina on being told what to do by Brussels than it ever was on being told what to do by Moscow, especially in the current context where immigrants and refugees are concerned, Hungary has not mealy refused to accept it share of the refugees who have arrived in Europe in recent years, but built fences to keep further arrivals out and passed laws which make helping migrants and refugees a criminal offense. Beyond that, the government of Prime Minister, Viktor Orban has become increasingly and obnoxiously authoritarian and explained undefended itself with rhetoric laid to not so much with xenophobic homophobic and. Antisemitic dog whistles as in phobic, homophobic and anti semitic air-horns to math on feel at torn. We are fighting enemy who is different from us. This enemy heights operating is in the open.

He owns the whole world. The. They showdown of sorts will therefore occur this week on the floor of the European parliament MEP's discussing whether or not to launch disciplinary measures against Hungary under the menacing sounding mechanism of article, seven of the Lisbon Treaty, potentially.

It sounds straightforward enough. If you. Join a club, you undertake to obey its rules, and you accept that there up penalties for breaking them article. Seven is pretty clear in its insistence that quote, all EU countries, respect the values of the EU end quote and Victorian orbin has been pretty clear in his judgment that the values of the EU ranked somewhere so far as he's concerned between a nuisance and an irrelevance case, you would think closed except that it isn't that simple where the EU is concerned very little ever is. The problem is that Victor orbin stand against refugees while hardly becoming from the leader over country whose people were climbing fences to freedom themselves.
