As soon as I heard that the Hungarian government was seeking to prevent Richard B. Spencer and other participants in the National Policy Institute’s European Congress conference from entering the country, I expected Leftist snark about how Spencer and the other attendees are “illegal aliens” and how they are hypocritical for defying Hungary’s laws while supporting immigration control.
The National Policy Institute’s Dick Spencersays the conference will go on as planned, meaning that as an American he is going to invade a foreign land to hold an event where he will no doubt complain about other people invading foreign lands.”
As usual, the U.S. Main Stream Media has been slow to pick up on this repression of non-liberals, but if it does I expect much more snark about “right-wing illegal immigrants.”
Indeed, some on the Right are falling for this and claiming we must respect other country’s immigration policies. One commenter on the Occidental Dissent website wrote:
If a nation doesn’t want you holding a conference on its territory, you don’t ignore their wishes, barge right in, and mewl about your “rights”. In America, I’d fight to the death if necessary to defend my freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. In America, these rights are my property, the heritage handed down to me by my ancestors. In any other country of the world, I’d conduct myself with deference, as a guest should – especially in Hungary, the most politically enlightened nation in the western world, for which I have the utmost respect, and whose government I have no desire to embarrass.
Similarly, in 2009 when the British government banned Michael Savage from entering the country, Dylan Hales wrote on TakiMag that
The UK’s decision to ban Michael Savage from their shores may be stupid, but it’s also none of our business. There is no harm in calling it absurd of course, but the notion that Mr. Savage has a “right” to be an unwanted guest is something any serious restrictionist ought to fiercely oppose.
