    The EU is a bureaucratic shitshow. Orban is about 70% right in his disagreements with the EU.

    I'm not going to read anything from the American Conservative. I can only imagine the BS to justify right wing hate, bigotry, and censorship. Don't mix your nasty "other than European" bloods with us Orban appeals to the White Nationalists' in the GOP party.

    Not so much of an attack but an observation. This stuff sells. Quite a few entities made a killing when the round mound was in office.

    Show the media that has nailed this coverage without flip flopping and I will absolutely give them a read.

    It's an inaccurate observation when you generalize it and do not criticize particular articles or even particular publishers, websites, or authors.

    Most article I read has disclaimers of 'we don't fully know yet and might never since they are classified'. Do tell me more about which one you have read that you have a problem with.

    BTW, the first general source I go to is still wiki
    FBI search of Mar-a-Lago - Wikipedia

    It is shocking that a guy from Germany would be so in favor of facist leaders, when his country literally shows what happens with Hitler.

    Book banning - check
    overbearing rules and governance - check
    turning in your neighbors - check

    I mean - how anyone can be from a country that had Hitler as it's leader and embrace what is going on with some in our country is mind blowing.

    But that is ATW these days.

    I always wondered how the German people could have allowed someone like Hitler to come to power. NOW, I understand. We are seeing the same thing play out here in the United States with Trump. I’ll admit that I was naive. I just didn’t think it was possible. I thought Americans took pride in free and fair elections and the orderly transfer of power.

    I now view Americans differently. I now know there are tens of millions of Americans willing to throw away everything that people have fought and died for, in order to keep someone like Donald Trump in power. It’s disgusting.

    That’s the crux. Most of these people are so far removed from actually fighting in a war that mattered that they don’t understand what our forefathers did. They’re fat, lazy, entitled and mad for some unknown reason. Trump taps into this and feeds it. He’s a demagogue.

    It's amazing how guys like that cry when Republicans are investigated or caught commiting crimes. Such an unfair world when certain people aren't immune to the laws of this country. Defund the FBI! Defund the IRS! Impeach those judges that investigate our guys stealing secrets! Censure those RINOS that dare to tell the truth about the coup and insurrection. Trump won! What'this world coming to?

    The difference between myself and that dude is that I believe criminals deserve to be charged for their crimes, and I don't give a damn what party they represent. Get the corruption out of our government.

    So nice try with reverse psychology. I did read it. He tried to defend the racist language of Orban by twisting it to mean anti-Muslim. It was insanely bigoted.

    But of course the anti-Muslim angle appeals to you.

    But to normal folk this is bigoted, xenophobic. And Orban deserves all of the criticism he received.

    The author is obviously trying to minimize it by talking about just a few comments in the gigantic hour long speech.

    But the best part is where the article's author says it's not American anti-mixed-race Orban is talking about. Americans relate that to the horrible history of prejudice towards African-Americans. But he really meant the anti-Muslim type of prejudice which you guys should all be okay with. The article is ridiculous.

    It's actually humorous you posted this article as a defense.

    I know you enjoy anything against Islam whether fundamenlist extremist variety or not. And anything against people with beards that you consider dirty can't be bad.

    But Orban means anyone that is different. And that's the real problem.
