In a letter despatched to Manfred Weber – the chairman of the European People’s Party (EPP), the most important political group within the EU Parliament, Council, and Commission – Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban formally introduced that his political celebration, Fidesz, would resign from the center-right group.
Orban’s resolution to tug Fidesz out of the faction got here after the EPP, which has dominated EU politics for over 20 years, moved to enact a brand new rule change that might have paved the best way for Fidesz to be suspended from its ranks.
Much of the mainstream media, which have bent over backwards for years to tow the road of the EPP, applauded Orban’s walkout. What they failed to understand, nevertheless, was that Orban’s divorce from the EPP was not solely a very long time coming, however is, in reality, a harbinger of what’s more likely to come for the mainstream political households in Brussels.
The unwieldy coalition of events that make up the EPP have spent at the least the final dozen years shifting additional away from the issues of the typical citizen in any one of many 27 nations that make up the European Union. From their dogmatic regulatory dictates to the seemingly countless makes an attempt to socially engineer a brand new and fully synthetic “European” nationality that cripples itself with concern about each coloration, faith, sexual id, language, authorized/unlawful immigrants, and nearly each different minority underneath the solar, with out ever taking significantly the fundamental, generations-old ideas of nationwide id and pride-of-place or the easy day-to-day fears and hardships of those that aren’t happy with the lack of a lifestyle that they both grew up with or pined for over these a long time of sweeping social and financial change.
The politically right class throughout the EPP has, as a substitute, overtly mocked these very ideas and those that believed in them. In their view, if this had been to have been the dying days of the Roman Empire, they might have insisted that there have been no barbarians on the gates, as a result of how dare you consult with them as ‘barbarians’.
While the media and the chatter class of the Brussels Bubble will scoff and mock Orban for not being a carbon copy of the 1000’s of EU sycophants who populate the cafes and cocktail bars of Brussels’ “European Quarter” – the highly effective DNA pressure that he and others like him in Europe signify stays unchanged and unwavering. That, in and of itself, is a sign that the normal political events in Europe might in reality be headed in direction of extinction.
