    Abascal spoke at the same event at which Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban had spoken previously.

    The Spanish politician told the audience that Spain has an advantage when it comes to immigration. “The advantage is that Spain was vaccinated against Islamic immigration during eight centuries of occupation and eight centuries of reconquest, and the advantage is that we have not yet arrived at the levels of Islamic immigration of the countries of Central Europe,” he said.

    “But the problem is that Spain, a part of the Spanish people, have ceased to continue loving themselves. The disadvantage of Spain is separatism.”

    According to Abascal, Europe that has lost faith and no longer believes in anything. It has become a “Europe in which debates censor themselves, and I think, for example, of the ideology of gender, where one cannot speak of the climate, where there are new religions”.

    He said Europe no longer values the liberty of nations and people to decide what to do with their lives.

    “The political, economic and cultural oligarchies of Europe have betrayed the Europeans and are taking our nations down a dead-end street, and that is why we are all here.

    “Because with their relativist politics, they are attacking the cultural and religious European tradition. And with the politics of open borders they are eroding the security and the freedom in our streets, especially for our women, and they are destroying our culture and our civilization.

    “The European oligarchies have abandoned the French, the Belgians, the Dutch, the Spaniards, the Italians. They attack us with massive taxes. They govern us from far away places, people whom we have not elected.

    “They impose policies for which we have not voted. They are robbing us of our cultural identity, the right to property, the family, the nation. They are robbing us of Europe, the Europe we love,
    which wants to convert our land.

    “And it is worse. The situation is grave because of all those we blame for the systematic destruction of Europe, they treat us as criminals.

    “Think of the miserable criminalisation of Viktor Orban, Abascal added. He said the worst enemies of Europe are the globalist bureaucrats from Brussels and “phony intellectuals who defend those bureaucrats”. He said that in reality, they were defending their caste privilege.

    But Abascal said voters should not fear them. “We have to continue the work of representing those who have no voice; those who do not feel represented in the face of the union of bureaucrats, in the face of [George] Soros, in the face of the UN, in the face of the lobbies and the leftist NGOs.

    “We have to defend the family as the fundamental nucleus of society and the foundation of all human beings,” he concluded.
