Nah. By Western European standards he's well to the right of the Overton Window. I mean, he's explicitly stated that he wants to create an "illiberal state"
. It's bloody creepy.
Now, he's not quite as far right as the ultra-right nutters in Jobbik, so small mercies I suppose.
By the way, I don't actually remember mentioning Orbán before. Possible I did though, and I do think he's a fascist.
He's used "illiberal democracy" many times that's true, that's like one of his rightie-catching phrases. The reason he's doing that is that Jobbik is always preaching against liberals whom they call "libsi" the way they used to call bolsheviks "bolsi". On the net liberal and libsi are some kind of curse words, so from Orbán this is kindofan attempt at competing with the young guns. He's also quite corrupt and is always working on getting more power in his hands that's true too. Like he was controlling the media for a while quite strongly, atm he's having problems though. He became enemies with one of his long time rich guy buddy and media guru called Simicska so the TV channel that used to be his main propaganda channel called Hír TV turned against him, and there's the left's TV called ATV which was always against him. There's the TV of the far right's conspiracy theory branch called Echo TV, it looks like it's taken over currently by one of Orbán's remaining gangster buddies but i don't think that move will be too successful cause it was full of the American type of conspiracy theories you were talking about before so viewers were just laughing at it. Then recently there were big scandals in Fidesz, one of the main Fidesz guys called Rogán was helicopter tripping from state money to weddings and stuff and got caught lying about it, and it turned out a terrorist called Ghaith Pharaon was doing business with Orbán's son in law and also had a property right next to one of Orbán's houses. So not all sunshine for him, i wouldn't really call him a fascist, he was grabbing power like all political leaders when they have the chance for sure and had a lucky run but atm it looks like lots of things are falling out of his hands, and ofc the referendum about migrants just failed and Jobbik came out as victors from that. So yeah he's a jerk and he's corrupt but i wouldn't call him a fascist.
You were talking with Mark about him when Orbán endorsed Trump, Mark linked the article, you said he's doing it cause he's some far right something and Mark said something like isn't he partly Turk though, if you search by "Turk" maybe you find that part.
Gotta go now good night
