On April 8, 2018, Hungarians will go to the polls to elect a new parliament and prime minister. Incumbent Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his Fidesz party are seeking to win a fourth term in order to continue their struggle against George Soros, globalism, and the European Union.

I’m raising money so I can report on the election, using my years of experience as a journalist and my knowledge and connections in Hungary to bring you the real story. The international fake news media has long targeted Hungary as a “racist,” “xenophobic,” and “authoritarian” country because of its resistance to multiculturalism and leftism, and I want to counteract them by getting the truth out there.

Hungary’s Struggle Against the Globalists

Viktor Orbán is well-known and respected for his defense of nationalism and Christianity in the face of the leftist, anti-white E.U. When the European migrant crisis began in 2015, Hungary built a wall on its southern border to keep hordes of Muslim rapists from illegally entering their country. They’ve also resisted Angela Merkel’s demand that they take in Muslim migrants via the E.U.’s refugee quotas. Because of Orbán’s actions, Hungary has been spared the crime, squalor, and demographic decline that have been afflicting Germany, France, and other Western European countries.

Orbán has also struck back against the globalist agenda in other ways. In 2012, his Fidesz party installed a new constitution that banned gay marriage and keeps the country from joining the eurozone, among other things. Last year, Orbán also moved to shut down Central European University, a propaganda mill funded by George Soros that pushes subversive, leftist ideas. The Hungarian government has also legislated against what it calls the “Soros Plan,” the globalist plot to flood white countries with non-white immigrants in order to destroy them.

Orbán’s defiance of globalism has made him a hero to nationalists and the dissident right and a villain of the international left, who regularly denounce him as a “racist,” an “autocrat,” and a stooge of Vladimir Putin. Hungary’s model of nationalism is becoming increasingly popular, with right-wing governments in Poland, the Czech Republic, and Austria now emulating Orbán’s methods, and Western nationalist leaders such as Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen have also spoken highly of him.

What I Want to Do

While it is generally accepted that Fidesz will win the election, nothing is guaranteed. If Fidesz wins at least two-thirds of the seats in the National Assembly, they will be able to amend the constitution. Orbán’s party currently has a wide lead in the polls, but there are a number of threats to him on the horizon. In particular, Momentum (a far-left, SJW party popular among young people) and Jobbik (a formerly nationalist party that has gone cuckservative) are possible obstacles for Fidesz to deal with.

Additionally, Soros and the E.U. will be looking for any opportunity to take down Orbán and retake control. The leftist-controlled U.S. State Department has already been caught trying to interfere in the Hungarian election, and U.K. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has openly called for Fidesz’s defeat.

I’ve been living in Europe for the past year, primarily in Hungary and Ukraine, and I’ve already done some reporting on major events here, such as an anti-Putin protest by the left-wing opposition, the various marches in support of Central European University, and political turf wars between Fidesz and Jobbik. I have several years of experience in independent journalism, most notably in reporting on the U.S. presidential election in 2016; my work has also been covered by Magyar Hírlapone of Hungary’s major newspapers.

I’m raising money so I can take a leave of absence from my job and report on the election full-time in the month leading up to Election Day. My work will include articles, interviews with major figures, reporting on rallies and speeches, and recording videos, podcasts, and livestreams. Your donations will go towards covering my expenses, which include:

  • Travel: trains, buses, car rentals etc. (since I’ll need to travel not only all over Hungary itself, but to Hungarian-majority areas in neighboring countries such as Romania and Ukraine)
  • Accommodation: hotel rooms (when I have to travel outside of Budapest)
  • Translators: translating important information from Hungarian to English and vice versa
  • Food
  • Various miscellaneous costs (equipment etc.)

My past work as a journalist shows that I have what it takes to get the job done, and due to the fact that I’m based in Hungary and have many connections here, I can get the real story for you while spending a fraction of the money that fake news media outlets do. Because journalism is a time-consuming and money-losing enterprise, I need to appeal to you, my readers, to get the funds necessary for my work.
