Victor Rebengiuc: Nationalism is a danger.  I can't be a nationalist.  I don't think that the Romanian is the smartest man in the world

Victor Rebengiuc spoke on Friday night, at Digi24, about nationalism and the corrupt. The great actor says he can’t be a nationalist. “By nature, I can’t be a nationalist,” says Rebengiuc. “I don’t have to punch myself in the chest and kill others who are not Romanians,” the actor added. As for corruption, the master says that Romania needs “honest people, free from the temptation of corruption, where nothing can be done because they have to ask for something …”.

Claudiu Pândaru, Digi24 journalist: You have lived, seen and felt the danger of empty nationalism.

Victor Rebengiuc: Yes!

Claudiu Pândaru: We see that not only in Romania, but in the whole of Europe, maybe even in the whole world, this mirage is rising again.

Victor Rebengiuc: And probably because of migration. The fact that many migrants are coming from across the Mediterranean, and the threat that jobs are becoming less and less accessible to “natives”, perhaps because they work on lower wages, and then, of course, is the problem. that “we, the Romanians”, “we, the Germans”, “we must do, not you, those who come now”.

Claudiu Pândaru: How would you describe a young man, for example, who has no life experience, but only the lack of role models, values, and maybe he is enchanted by this mirage of nationalism. How would you describe this danger?

Victor Rebengiuc: It’s a danger. I can’t be a nationalist. By nature, I can’t be a nationalist. Let me say, “Sir, I am Romanian …”. “I am Romanian!”. So what? As a Romanian, I have to work honestly, take care of my job, do everything I can to be good in my country. I don’t have to punch myself in the chest and kill others who are not Romanians.

And don’t think that the Romanian is the smartest man in the world. Don’t think so.

The Romanians had very smart people. But not only Romanians had very smart people in this world. We have electric light here, not from Romanians. We have a poor American.

“Romania needs people like the world, with good ideas, with faith in democracy, free from the temptation of corruption”

Other things in this world were invented by very smart people, or by chance. Not that he is Romanian and that forgives everything and justifies everything.

That’s not possible!

Claudiu Pândaru: Tell me one more thing. If it were possible to change something quickly and fundamentally, which would lead Romania with rapid steps forward, what would it be, or what should this be?

Victor Rebengiuc: People to lead it, people like the world, with good ideas, faith in democracy and everything that can be better. Honest people, devoid of this temptation of corruption, where nothing can be done because they have to ask for something to blame … “But what do I get out of it?”. To him, who is put there to do this job, on that salary.

I can’t be corrupt. What to do? Talking to the audience ?, “Sir, be careful, I’m playing tonight, but what’s the point of this, if you want to see the show?”

Can I do that? I can not do something like this! Because this is a mess. I have the joy of playing when I enter the stage.

Claudiu Pândaru: You don’t see that, the joy of some politicians to be leaders …

Victor Rebengiuc: Only when they grab it, when I take it for them, there. When I see this Oprescu, God, God … He says that “I honored my country, I did not kneel”. No, his money automatically went into his pocket. It was a clear circuit and the money was flowing. That’s how he got caught, because the money was still flowing.

“Well, what’s with that money?” “Well, I lent it to them, I didn’t know it was 16, and I thought it was 11 …”.

I inquired a little too, but I don’t care anymore. I no longer want. I know nothing can be done.

As they said about Codruța Kovesi that “she is not a good Romanian”. She is not a “good Romanian”, “she did not love her nation and her people, and her country”. She wanted to get rid of corruption, but she “ruined Romania.” That is how flourishing Romania is, with corrupt people in power. Ministries, all of them, are top-down only corruption, at every level.
