I remember the early autumn of 2016, just before Donald Trump was elected President of America. I was sitting on the terrace of a very trendy bar with a very good friend, and we were on our 6th or 7th glass of rum. It was one of those blessed Mediterranean nights where the scorching heat of the day had receded and the moisture of the air was slowly cooling, (more…)
I have believed for some time that the only way the white West can be saved is disaster. I appreciate that we seem to be in the middle of one, but I will be more specific.
The West, from the eastern borders of Finland and the Visegrád 4 (V4) countries to the Californian coast, needs financial collapse in order to continue. (more…)

“Pole and Hungarian brothers be.” Poland and Hungary have enjoyed a long and special relationship since the Middle Ages. It was the ethnic Magyar Stephen Báthory (yes, of the same family as the infamous “Blood Countess”) whom Polish noblemen voted into power as the king in 1576. (more…)
To understand Central and Eastern Europe as they are today, we must go back an entire century to the immediate aftermath of the First World War. As old empires collapsed, newly independent nations fought numerous conflicts for territory culminating in the Polish-Soviet War. (more…)
I have always wanted to visit Transylvania and Bran Castle, known throughout the world as Dracula’s Castle. Although having little connection to Vlad the Impaler or Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the myths behind the castle have inspired countless horror films and heavy metal songs. (more…)
He came from a world where soft music lilted through dining rooms and ballrooms and salons . . . it was played to make life sweeter and more festive, to make women’s eyes flash and men’s vanity throw sparks . . . [his] music on the other hand didn’t offer forgetfulness; it aroused people to the feelings of passion and guilt and demanded that [they] be truer to themselves . . . such music is upsetting . . .

Nikola Šubić Zrinski is an opera written in 1876 by Croatian composer Ivan Zajc that retells the Siege of Szigetvár. It is Zajc’s most accomplished work and is considered the national opera of Croatia. An excellent recording of the opera was released in late July featuring the Rijeka Symphony Orchestra (more…)
When I was living in Hungary, I took my girlfriend on a day trip to the border town of Komárno, Slovakia. Despite having a nice meal and a scenic walk around the town, I ended up complaining and arguing about trivial matters. Near the end of the day, we saw a memorial to Mór Jókai, the famous Hungarian writer (more…)

It’s great to be back here. It’s the first time I’ve been at AmRen since 2014, and of course the world has changed a lot since then. This is why I think it’s timely that I talk about what’s happening in Hungary today, since I spoke about that in 2014 as well, but at that time, Europe’s migrant crisis was nothing more than a twinkle in George Soros’ eye.

How the Swedish Government Hides Immigrant Crime, Hungary & the EU Elections, & More on The Wicker Man
Translated by Guillaume Durocher
Long considered the most radical parliamentary party in Europe, over the course of only a few years, Jobbik has morphed into a centrist and pro-European Union party, completely abandoning its former radical rhetoric opposing the EU, NATO, the LGBT movement, and gypsy crime. Today, in fact, Jobbik is trying to ally with the liberal and progressive Left in order to topple Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his party, Fidesz. Thus, this article is a brief history of a political 180.
Hungary & Poland United Against Brussels:
The March 15 National Day Speeches in Budapest
Every March 15, Hungary celebrates her 1848-49 struggle for freedom, which was a fight against the Habsburg Empire led by – among others – Hungarian republicans who were supported by Poland, most notably General Bem, the last general still standing at the end of the uprising.
On this day, Hungarians wear a cockade with national colors and celebrate the unity of the Nation. On this occasion, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán invited his Polish counterpart, Mateusz Morawiecki, to Budapest in order to celebrate the Poles’ support for this Hungarian struggle with them.

Since the American Alt Right fell apart, many commentators and outlets which formerly identified as “Alt Right” have started pointing towards European populism as an example to follow, and are often heard to say that the nationalist cause is much further ahead in Europe. As a European, I would like to comment on this, based on the Dutch populist movement, which is relatively strong for a Western European country. (more…)
Many on the Right seem to think that Christian nationalism is the path forward for our movement. They look to Hungary, Poland, and Russia as evidence that putting Christian identity at the forefront of our cause is the best way to attract the masses and restore white civilization to its rightful glory.
A series of demonstrations have taken place in Hungary opposing its conservative Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán. Its trigger was a vote in Parliament approving changes to the labor laws. Both the Hungarian and the foreign media who are typically hostile toward the illiberal Prime Minister and his party, Fidesz, have painted a terrible portrait of the situation. The progressive, liberal, and socialist opposition radicalized its discourse and actions, and they have carried out numerous agitprop operations. Let us summarize the facts:
The arguments over identitarians should embrace or abandon Christianity is a question that still remains unresolved within the broader movement.
Last week, Quintilian entered the fray and offered a reasoned argument for why white nationalists should embrace Christianity. The writer believes that white nationalists have fallen prey to the corrupted image of modern Christianity and fail to see the glory of the traditional faith. (more…)

Viktor Orbán: Say Goodbye to the Elite of ’68
80 words / 42:33
This a complete video, with English subtitles, of Viktor Orbán’s recent speech in Transylvania, in which he highlighted his accomplishments and outlined a vision of a renewed Central Europe pursuing its own geopolitical interests, but also being a region based on illiberalism, national sovereignty, and Christian values, as well as the rejection of non-European immigration and the values of the ’68 generation. Orbán’s annual summer speeches in Transylvania are always his clearest statements of his ideological goals. The text is here.

Nigel Farage Rips the EU Parliament for Attacking Hungary
49 words / 2:47
In a speech delivered yesterday (September 11) at the European Parliament, Nigel Farage tears into the Eurocrats for their condemnation of Hungary’s policies regarding migration, which passed in a vote today by a two-thirds majority, and praises Viktor Orbán for standing up in the face of theirs and George Soros’ bullying.
Today (Wednesday), the Council of the European Union voted – for the first time ever in its history – to censure Hungary for a “systematic breach of European values,” by a two-thirds majority. On Tuesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was at the European Parliament in Strasbourg to take part in the debates on the Sargentini report – named after its primary editor, Judith Sargentini, who is an MEP for the GreenLeft – denouncing the alleged decline of the “rule of law” in Hungary.

Kulturkampf in Hungary:
Goodbye “Gender Studies” – & It’s Only the Beginning
The teaching of “gender studies” is no longer allowed in Hungary. This is part of an important cultural and ideological war that is redrawing the political, cultural, and intellectual landscape of the country.
It happened in the middle of August: Students who have begun a course in “gender studies” at a Hungarian institution will be able to finish it, but no new courses will henceforth be permitted to start. (more…)
