By The New Observer’s correspondent in Ásotthalom, Hungary. The mayor of Ásotthalom, László Toroczkai, is as impressive in real life as he is in his world famous videos. He is young, energetic, and dedicated to a cause which he knows is of supreme importance to not only the future of his town, but for the future of European civilization.
Mayor Toroczkai and the fence on the Hungarian border, which he first proposed.
“Every twelve seconds, a new ‘migrant’ enters Europe,” he told a group of nearly 50 patriots gathered from all over Europe in Ásotthalom today for a special two day conference.
When the first wave of nonwhite invaders entered through the open border near his town in 2014, Hungary did not even have a border police force. It had been disbanded by the previous socialist government prior to 2010.
In 2013, 40,000 migrants passed through Ásotthalom, and by the end of the year, Mayor Toroczkai started demanding a fence on the border. “I also asked for the help of the police and military,” he said.
“Back in those days they didn’t even reply to my letters, and nothing happened. I realized that I was alone,” he continued. “Neither the European Union or the Hungarian government helped me.”
It was then that he founded a local town police force. “The local policemen have almost the same rights as the state police. They have guns; they can stop and arrest anyone,” he continued.
“We equipped them with vehicles. We started to protect our open borders on our own. Ásotthalom has a twenty-five kilometer (about nineteen miles) border with Serbia.
“We started to chase the human traffickers. Most of the traffickers were gypsies from Hungary and Serbia, but we have also arrested Pakistani, Arabic, Albanian, Turkish, and even Chechen traffickers.
By December 2014 Mayor Toroczkai had taken to the Internet to inform not only his townspeople but also Hungary and the world of the situation that was already developing.
“I realized that most people could not see what was happening here on the borders of the European Union.” Because of this, journalists from all over the world began to contact him.
“I told all the journalists that the only way to stop the invasion was to build a border fence. The fence is my idea. I was the first to talk about it in Hungary.”
During the summer of 2015, hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants passed through Ásotthalom.
“Eighty percent were military age males, and 99 percent of them were Muslims. Nationalities included Syrians, Iraqis, Afghanis, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, and many African countries,” he continued.
“They broke into farms, stole cars, and left a huge amount of rubbish behind. On the border, right next to my own home, two groups got into a fight. They used knives and one was killed.”
Finally, in June 2015, the Hungarian government started building the fence.
“That was the most beautiful day of my life,” Mayor Toroczkai said. “The Hungarian government listened to all of my suggestions, including the need for a fence, the army and police on the border, and new laws.”
These new laws, he said, were of the greatest importance, because they allow the police to arrest illegal immigrants and take them straight to court for deportation orders. If they are caught a second time, they are sent to jail.
“The Hungarian government listened to all my suggestions and they made the first, very brave step which no one else had dared to do…they built the fence,” he continued.
“Since then, illegal immigration has stopped in Hungary. But there are invaders still streaming into the EU. Europe is without doubt in distress, and that is why the successful Hungarian model should be used on the whole of the EU’s border.”
The fence consists of two sets of emplacements: a quadruple roll of barbed wire, backed up by a ten foot high steel fence capped by a roll of barbed wire.
Every seven kilometers, or five miles, a thermal camera tower monitors the entire border fence for invaders twenty-four hours per day.
Mayor Toroczkai went on to say that the “current leaders of Europe are responsible for this situation. It is they who have betrayed the European people. Their aim is to destroy all the sovereign nations in order to make it easier for the bankers to rule over us.
“If we want to survive, we will have to make an alliance and we will have to use the Hungarian model which was first started here in Ásotthalom.
“We are not afraid! Here, on the Hungarian Serbian border, we stopped the invasion. We defended Hungary, and now we want to protect Europe as well.
“If we do nothing, our several thousand-year-old European civilization will be destroyed within our lifetime.
“As you can see, there are no traces left of the hundreds of thousands of migrants who crossed through our town this year. Now there is peace and silence in Ásotthalom.
“We must continue this work together for the European nations and European civilization. We are the Crusaders of the twenty-first century—we have lots of hard work to do but I believe that together, we can win.”
