One would have thought that after Austria started building a fence at the Slovenian border, criticism toward earlier Hungarian efforts to protect the border of the Schengen zone would slowly wind down, but that’s not been the case. Could be because Austria insists upon not calling the “thing” a fence, though for the life of me I can’t figure out what you do call a razor-wire something that is set up where your property ends. Anyway, the latest critic of the horrible Hungarian measures is Jean Asselborn, the Foreign Minister of Luxembourg, the rotating president of the EU, who said that “if everyone reacted similarly to the Hungarian prime minister, Europe would withdraw behind barbed-wire fences, which is not compatible with humanitarian, democratic or constitutional values. In that sense, Viktor Orbán is not European”. Okay, then. Since a lot of us reacted the same way as Orbán, not only are we not humanitarians, democrats and adherents to constitutional values, now we are not even Europeans. Only because we are trying to do something about immigration instead of tiptoeing around like Frau Merkel does. I said it a few times already that I have no idea if the fence is a good solution, but you know there’s got to be something to it when the former chair of the Socialist Party says, “I don’t like it that much that there is a fence along our country’s border, but could anyone please come up with a solution that is any better than that?” Perhaps instead of talking nonsense, Asselborn too should start to think about a better solution.
