DAILYKENN.com --Hungary has thrown its lot in with Poland and Italy to form an axis that opposes the displacement of Europe.
The axis was first suggested by Austria's patriotic chancellor Sebastian Kurz.

Hungary’s prime minister has welcomed the creation of an anti-immigration “axis” in Europe that could see like-minded far-right EU leaders join forces to run the union.
Viktor Orban said he wanted to see an anti-immigration majority in the EU institutions and that he would team up with countries like Italy and Poland to change the bloc’s direction.
The far-right leader said there could be no “compromise” on the migration issue and that he would have to “fight” leaders such as Emmanuel Macron to “respect Hungarians' decision not to become an immigrant nation”.
“I wish for Europe to have a political force that is to the right of the European People's Party [the transnational centre-right party that dominates the European Commission], a Rome-Warsaw axis that is capable of governing, capable of taking responsibility and opposed to immigration,” he said in a speech on Thursday.
Mr Orban also said he believed there would be “two civilisations” in the EU: “one mixed Muslim-Christian in the west and one traditional, in central Europe”.
