Totalitarian thug?

One of the best-run nations now is Hungary. But because it refuses to open its borders to illegal aliens, it has incurred the wrath of globalist leftists. The dimwitted Joe Biden referred to Hungary’s prime minister Viktor Orbàn as a “totalitarian thug,” a phrase he does not apply to actual totalitarian thugs such as Xi Jinping, the dictator of China.

Orbán occasionally drives himself around Budapest with no security detail. What sort of totalitarian thug would do that?

I admire Hungary and Orbán. I would love to live in Budapest, a beautiful city. Tucker Carlson recently flew to Hungary to interview Orbán. Here is part of it.

Heavy hand of the U.K.

It’s been a rough year and a half for most everyone, and it’s been rougher in some places than in others. Not so rough in Mexico, thank the Goddess, but very rough in the United Kingdom, and not so much for the Kung Flu but the government’s reaction to it.

Pandemics happen, and there’s not too much you can do about it other than exercise common sense. That’s how folks have dealt with pandemics in the past, but this one has been different due to some governments’ using it to extend power and oppress citizens. This has been made far easier by the colossally corrupt media.

Few, if any, nations have used the Kung Flu pretext to extend power and oppress citizens more than the United Kingdom which, in many ways, has become a totalitarian state. Will that soften when the pandemic ends, which it mostly already has?

Time will tell. Don’t be optimistic.

Here we have the ever-perspicacious Simon Webb opining on today’s U.K.

And yes, this can happen to you. If you live in the U.S., one of the blue states, it’s already happened to you, though to a less extent than what’s going on in the U.K.

The awkward questions

A brave and perceptive fellow from across the pond.

Simon Webb is a British historian and author. I’ve been following his videos on YouTube for many weeks. His channel is dubbed History Debunked. I am interested in history. I have a degree in history. Most people know squat about history.

I particularly enjoyed this video because it touches on a topic that affects many aspects of our conflictive Western world these days, that we are all equal or some such silliness.

“The Western world today is in the grip of irrational thinking.”

Webb points out parallels between today’s politically correct nonsense and similar stupidities that were shoved down the gullets of citizens in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and that if you don’t toe the correct line you can find yourself in serious trouble.

In Soviet and National Socialist times, you risked your life, but these days you only risk your reputation and livelihood. You won’t be shot just yet.

A few of the more radical Democrat politicos, working under the assumption their election fraud will be successful, have already proposed a Black List of Trump Administration officials to prevent their finding employment in the future. Of course, they would love to extend that to everyone who supports Trump.

Shades of Sen. Joe McCarthy.
