Presidential candidate Joe Biden launched another attack on American allies Poland and Hungary at last week's town hall. He barbed that President Trump embraces the world's thugs and totalitarian regimes "in everything from Belarus to Poland to Hungary."

But he angered some of America's greatest NATO allies. For instance, Hungary's foreign minister, Péter Szijjártó, responded: "[The] President and Prime Minister take similar views on illegal migration, border protection, security, supporting families and protecting Christian communities," adding, "Obviously, this is why the Democratic challenger involved Hungary in the presidential campaign."

Szijjártó continued, "Instead of attacking Hungary and Poland, it would be best if Joe Biden could answer some of those old questions that have been out there for a while, before attacking Central Europe."

Hungary's prime minister, Viktor Orbán, has been working to keep billionaire leftist financier George Soros from pushing the country towards globalism, calling him "the world's number-one oligarch."

He cautioned that Poland could end up being like Ireland, a 'Catholic desert with LGBT ideology out of control.'

Poland, besides being a staunch ally of America, has been fighting the culture war on its own turf. In September, the leader of Poland's ruling party, Jarosław Kaczyński, warned that Poland must retain its Judeo-Christian values, eschewing culturally alien novelties from the West.

He cautioned that Poland could end up being like Ireland, a "Catholic desert with LGBT ideology out of control."

But as the United States goes, so do Poland and Hungary, the last Western outposts of freedom and morality.
