How to become a stronger autocrat: take notes

[www.washingtonpost.com]?

“I can tell you, knowing the president for a good 25 or 30 years, that he would love to have the situation that Viktor Orban has, but he doesn’t,” Mr. Cornstein said.

“That “situation” includes nine continuous years in office thanks to increasingly unfair elections, the construction of a razor wire fence along Hungary’s southern border to prevent the entry of asylum seekers and the articulation of an ideology of “illiberal democracy” whose explicit aim is to preserve Hungary’s white and Christian identity.

Yep, when I read Vick’s background I thought he will become BFF with Cheeto. Birds of a feather.

What a parochial view that is, it has nothing to do with being white or Christian.
Hungarians have no illusions about illegal immigration, having taking the country from locals by invading it in the first place, without any legal paperwork, they are quite proud they took the land by force, they celebrate it, and as any good barbarians, they plan to keep it.... ....

One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution;
one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship."

Max you missed the part where ORBAN articulated that perspective.
