Italy, Hungary, and Poland are joining together in a new patriotic alliance that seeks to generate another era of rebirth in Europe, this time in the style of the one motivated by former President Donald Trump, so its motto is: “Make Europe Great Again.”
To this end, representatives of the three countries met in Budapest, Hungary’s capital, on April 1, as the author, academic, and lecturer Steve Turley (Ph.D., Durham University) recounts in his video 3 Days Later.
The leaders were former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban, and Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, who discussed this right-wing political alliance based on Christian values, according to Turley.
Their impact on the European Union is substantial as combined; they hold 64 seats in the European Parliament in Brussels, “really the single most influential and powerful party block” in this institution.
Orban, for his part, outlined the alliance’s profile in a statement early last month when he left the center-right European People’s Party (EPP).
The goal is to “build a European democratic right that offers a home to European citizens who do not want migrants, who do not want multiculturalism, who have not descended into LGBTQ lunacy.”
He added: “who defend Europe’s Christian traditions, who respect the sovereignty of nations, and who see their nations not as part of their past, but as part of their future,” EUObserver quoted him as saying.
Likewise, Salvini, who leads the most prominent party in his country, The League, with which he supports the current government of Mario Draghi, also mentioned some characteristics of the union process in these three countries.
“Creating a shared charter of values, of freedom, of rights, of principles, of future objectives … will be the subject of the meeting with the Hungarian and Polish prime ministers,” he declared on March 30.
The representatives of the three countries demonstrate: “An unwavering commitment to secure the borders of each member nation as well as the continent as a whole,” Turley commented.
He added: “They radically oppose the globalizing processes that are replacing local economies industries and businesses with transnational corporations that have absolutely no loyalty to land or culture custom.”
