The southern Hungary village of Ásotthalom, near the border with Serbia, has banned public displays of both Islam and homosexuality. Specifically, Muslim headdresses and public calls to prayer have been forbidden. Signs have appeared in the streets with images of mosques crossed-out. Local authorities have declared that they are openly waging “war with Muslim culture.”

Manifestations of homosexuality have also been banned in the village of less than 5,000 people, according to MIGnews.

The decision was made at the height of the migration crisis in 2016 when up to 10,000 refugees a day, twice the size of the village, were flooding across the border near Ásotthalom.

However, Mayor Laszlo Torikago has stated the measure is not about creating a town only for white people. “I didn’t use the word ‘white.’ But as we’re all white European Christians here, we want to stay that way,” he said. “If we were black it would stay black,” he noted.

The local official also stated that if a large influx of Muslims were to come to Ásotthalom, they simply wouldn’t be able to integrate into a Christian society. “We are glad to have guests from Western Europe—people who don’t want to live in a multi-cultural society,” Torikago said.

“We wouldn’t want to attract Muslims… I would like that Europe belonged to Europeans,” Mayor Torikago said in summary.

Mr Orban is a practicing Calvinists. A member of the Reformed Church of Hungary. However he is very well disposed towards the Orthodox in all other Christians. Having worked in this part of Europe for a while I learned at the Carpatho Russian people in Transcarpathia (now in Ukraine) look to him for protection from Ukrainianization and from the chauvinism coming out of Kiev. I believe the people of Transcarpathia both rusyn and Hungarian would vote to join Hungary again as soon as possible if they were allowed to vote. And it probably would be better for them too.

These Hungarians have real backbone! The legacy of Vlad III is not lost. I would axpect a Soros/ CIA funded "revolution" fought by masked foreigners any time now.

One puzzle though. How are they supposed to differentiate muslim head scarves from Christian womens'ones? Is he just talking about turbans and such for men?
