    Sure, this is line that Hungarian Diktator Orban said at the 1934 International Fascist Congress
    CPAC in Dallas today
    “We must find friends and allies in one another. We must coordinate a movement of our troops because we face the same challenge​

    Keep stanning-

    “This is why we have always fought: we are willing to mix with one another, but we do not want to become peoples of mixed-race.”

    How does Orban feel about people from the East, say, Asians, for example, emigrating to Europe?


    Are there any public statements of his on this issue - either before or after his installation as dictator?

    How do you define dictator? Is Putin a dictator by your definition?

    https://www.quora.com/Is-Viktor-Orban-a-dictator

    It looks like he’s, at the least, pretty close to being a dictator. I don’t know when that switch happens.

    I wonder if AOM likes how the GOP is grandstanding this guy who fits the description of a dictator.

    Orban may not be a full fledged dictator but he has pretensions to be one and is certainly an authoritarian. He’s also a racist and we’re seeing a lot of that going hand in hand.

    I really wonder what all those “Conservatives” at CPAC who are in mixed race marriages or mixed race themselves think about that? What people who celebrate Clarence Thomas and Mitch McConnell think about their mixed race marriages.

    Probably about 2014.

    Here's a pretty good German film on Orban's "Fuehrer Democracy"

    Just like Japanese want to pretend Nanjing never happened, neither did slavery.

    It's the right-wing version of wokism: denying reality.

    Since we're talking old school fascist dictators, it's worth remembering that the "Economic Freedom" (that is, freedom of those who are born rich to treat society like a trip to Westworld) agenda of the unfortunately not yet entirely dead Koch Brothers and their network was built on..

    .....A fortune generated by their father Fred who made his millions building the economic engine of Stalin's dictatorship, his oil refineries. (Also Hitler's, because of ****ing course there's a through line to Hitler from the Kochs)

    "Take it from me! Minimum wage is evil, its socialism! I know this because i literally financed Stalin's gulags and purges, its evil! "

    Christendom. Republicans are openly rejecting separation of state and church.

    Takes a special kind of leftist to link people with Jewish roots to Hitler. We have seen that before.

    Oh yeah a typical leftist thing... You see so many typical leftists doing that. Those typical leftists love to blame Jews for everything. Now, your atypical leftist will only blame Jews for 68.4% of things. That's where they differ from the typical leftist. Then you get the odd outliar leftist who will only blame Jews for 34.81% of things. Very astute observation on your part. Way to really accurately classify the typical leftist! You did it! Congrats.

    Nobody is blaming "the Jews". People are commenting about a people building a refinery for f'ing Nazis.

    Let me ask you a question. Do you support people making fortunes for helping Nazis? Or are you against that?
