No, Tucker Carlson: The U.S. is not, will not, and never should be like Hungary

"Carlson and others on the right have expressed admiration for Hungarian policies that squash progressive ideals, not realizing that the executive consolidation of power present in Hungary could do the same thing to conservative ideas if a progressive rises to power." - Acton

Well-said. This is surprisingly common: 

"Essentially, some conservatives are willing to give up freedoms in order to counter what they see as the ascendant progressive project."

Agreed, although I think I can appreciate the desire of those in power in Hungary to retain and protect their culture without approving of everything they are doing to accomplish that goal.  Conservatives need to understand that while trying to preserve what they see as good in America might be a good goal to have, acting against and essentially denying the freedoms guaranteed in our founding documents does NOT serve that cause well.
