Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán is announcing a new — yet very old — mission for the countries of Central Europe.
In an article called "Fulfilling our Mission," written for Magyar Nemzet, Orbán explained how the Visegrád group — composed of Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia — is committed to bringing "the uncompromising anti-communist tradition into" what he calls "the common European vault."
Written on the 30th anniversary of the formation of the Visegrád alliance, Orbán said his Central European band of brothers "feel the weight of their responsibility in Europe's future" having survived — and risen above — the Soviet terror in their past.
Orbán sees a critical piece of this mission, including the building of a European future with national values and Christian teachings.
During his 2019 visit to the White House, Orbán summed up the meaning of national identity.
Orbán: "From the people, by the people, for the people. This is the basis for the Hungarian government."
Tucker Carlson: "Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán warned that politicians in Brussels, Berlin and Paris are going to destroy Western civilization with their enthusiasm for mass migration."
This fight has made the Visegrád alliance so threatening — even hated — by the globalist elites in Brussels and in Marxist strongholds throughout Europe.
Despite fierce opposition to their traditional values, Orbán has expressed hope in the alliance.
Orbán: "If we stand next to each other firmly, there is no enemy who could be successful against us."
The group was formed in 1991 after the fall of the Soviet Empire, when the leaders of the Visegrád nations pledged their mutual support and the elimination of any "remnants of the communist bloc."
This high-level meeting in 1991 took place outside Budapest in the ancient Visegrád Castle — hence the name of the group.
It mirrored a similar meeting that took place centuries before in 1335 in the same castle and was attended by the ancestors of the Visegrád nations — the king of Hungary, the king of Poland and the king of Bohemia.
According to Orbán, "We Hungarians have never believed that we were just simply born into this world. If you were born a Hungarian, you have a mission."
