    The independent conservative media outlet Vadhajtások made fun of Guy Verhofstadt’s public programme in Budapest however.

    Verhofstadt, nicknamed the “Tooth Fairy” in Hungary, was in the Hungarian capital to support the EU election campaign of the Hungarian Momentum party, which is a member of George Soros’s ALDE group.

    But virtually no supporters of ALDE or Momentum appeared in the streets. The party may get at most one seat in the European Parliament, or else will disappear.

    During Verhofstadt’s interviews, the Islamic call to prayer could be heard in the background, and cries of “Allahu Akhbar” and “you are a traitor to Europe” were shouted at him while he was trying to give details of his campaign to the globalist media.

    The Muslim population in Budapest in particularly small, numbering around 0.5 percent. The activists say in the video that the Islamic call is apparently what Verhofstadt wants for this country too, which is why they were playing it for him.

    The interview took place in front of the building of the Supreme Court of Hungary. In the video, it is clear that the dozen policemen were mainly deployed to protect the building from a potential leftist attack, ignoring the conservatives present.

    When the conservatives present were threatened by the leader of Momentum party, saying “you should be taken away by the police,” the police took no notice.

    One of the Orban supporters told the ALDE leader: “Who elected you? Prime Minister Viktor Orban was elected by two-thirds of the people. Tell us about Bayer-Monsanto that is funding your party.”

    In an op-ed, Verhofstadt thundered against the “populists” gaining ground, suggesting that Russia should be blamed.

    “After all, Russian money, support, and election interference have already enabled European populists and nationalists to come a long way. In Italy, after joining the coalition government as a junior partner, the League is now the country’s dominant party.

    “In the UK, Farage, along with Boris Johnson and other Brexit leaders, succeeded in pulling his country out of the EU. And in France, Le Pen has become a mainstream politician – something her father, the far-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, scarcely could have dreamed of.”

    He added: “My message to those voters is simple: do not become another one of Putin’s puppets.”
