"To critics around the world, Orban's Hungary is a cautionary tale of demagoguery, authoritarianism and nationalism run amok. But to hundreds of dyed-in-the-wool US Republicans listening to him speak at a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas, on Thursday, Orban's Hungary is something else entirely " a Christian, anti-woke, conservative utopia and an aspirational model for what they want the United States to become."

Is this really the future Republicans want for America? White, fascist, racist, hateful? Have any of you taken a step back to see what you're becoming? Or, has simply winning become so important to you that you can't see what's happening to this nation?

This person does not, should not, and cannot represent American values.

Orban, Trump, Putin, Xi... all cut from the same authoritarian movement cloth.

After the genocide they won't have to spend too much time being racist and hateful anymore.

Rwingers ran out of any good comebacks years ago.

Orban and Trump were cheered loudly by the same lame unAmerican crowd this week.

I would like all members of the GOP
to feel free and get that 'blatant racist'
bumper sticker that we all know you've been
pining for...

I mean the 'cat's outta the bag by now'.
You're not fooling anyone anymore...

I'd argue it isn't that forward-looking. More that those traits are their only route to continued power as a clear ideological minority party.

Republicants only care about keeping those Russian rubles coming in.

The Republican Party is about White male supremacist power. It calls itself a Christian nationalist party, but only from the shadows. It is going the way of all empires as the rich do what they can to make their wealth and powerful status total and never changing. No such thing as a good Republican Party member as it is now about authoritarianism and it is a lie to say otherwise. In a few years, if it isn't stopped at the ballot box, even Moscow Mitch won't recognize its fascist utterances.

I would never become a Republican because I hate Naxis with a passion.
