The national government does not want to return to the Gyurcsány era when the country’s leadership did not ‘draw a sword’ but rather ‘waved the white flag’ and joined the ‘jawohl club’ serving the globalist elite in connection with the war in Ukraine, Viktor Orbán declared in his remarks in parliament in Monday.
In their commentary, the Center for Fundamental Rights highlighted that in his parliamentary address, Orbán pointed out that the war in Ukraine and the energy crisis exacerbated by sanctions have once again given more room to actors attacking Hungary’s sovereignty. The fight for independence intensifies during such times, and according to the Center for Fundamental Rights, the PM outlined the strategy of this fight at the beginning of the autumn session of the National Assembly.
The Center noted that an Orbán–Gyurcsány debate took place in parliament: two periods, two ‘leading personalities,’ and their arguments clashed. The leader of the conservative political community, which has been re-elected three times since 2010 with a two-thirds majority, argued for the defence of Hungary’s political, economic, and cultural sovereignty, while ‘it became apparent from the words of the former prime minister, who has already sold out the country once, that defending the nation’s self-determination is not a political goal for him—which was his downfall after 2006 as well,’ the analysis reads.
In his speech,
Viktor Orbán identified three counterforces endangering decisions based on the will of the Hungarian people: the ‘Soros Empire,’ Brussels bureaucrats, and the American Democrats,
the organization wrote.
According to the Center for Fundamental Rights, the latter’s efforts have now become entirely clear: the Democrats want to push Hungary closer to war against the will of the vast majority of the people and encourage sending weapons and providing material support for military operations. The Center believes that the details of this pressure became even clearer with the ‘rolling dollars’ scandal. According to the Center for Fundamental Rights, the Biden administration does not treat Hungary as an ally because it would have preferred a ‘war-hungry puppet government’ at its helm. Brussels is also allocating money to support the left-wing and pro-left media, with which it ‘had a positive experience under Gyurcsány’s government,’ the statement said.
In the analysis, the Center recalled that the support of the former prime minister’s party began to decline after they submitted the so-called convergence program for 2006, which was full of austerity measures and led to a significant increase in utility costs, the latter being the demand of Brussels today as well. According to the Center for Fundamental Rights, ‘national assets were squandered’, from the energy sector to banks, family debt was amassed in foreign currency, mostly in Swiss francs; the Socialists took away one month’s pension, one month’s salary from public sector workers, and reduced family support.
‘Brussels and the Soros Empire are attacking Hungary hand in hand’ for its efforts to stop migration and ‘gender madness,’ the Center wrote, adding that Gyurcsány and the ‘left he controls’ also serve the international liberal mainstream in this respect. Instead of protecting the border, they still stand for the taking in of migrants, and they would open the door to the latest ‘crazy ideologies’ related to sexuality in schools, the analysis suggested.
In contrast, the current government wants to tighten border protection and child protection regulations, in accordance with the will of voters clearly expressed in referendums. ‘Gyurcsány has long made it clear that he wants a European United States,’ so when Brussels orders the complete abandonment of independent foreign policy, he would ‘tap his ankles’ for it, while Orbán also explained on Monday that the national cabinet is not willing to do so, the Center for Fundamental Rights wrote, adding that the governing parties are preparing to pass a sovereignty-protecting law.
Before next year’s elections, Hungarian voters are again faced with the alternative of whether they want to return to the era when ‘international liberal trends overruled all individualism’ or prioritize the country’s interests, the analysis concluded.
