The New York Young Republican Club announced that Miklós Szánthó, the Director General of the Center for Fundamental Rights, has agreed to join its Board of Advisors. The board consists of influential conservative leaders who provide guidance on the club’s activities and priorities.
According to the statement, as the Director General of the Center for Fundamental Rights, Szánthó leads the organisation in its mission to counter the globalist agenda aimed at dismantling Western society.
The Center plays a crucial role in fostering connections between conservatives across the Atlantic. Recently, it successfully organised the second annual CPAC Hungary conference in Budapest, which brought together thousands of conservatives under the theme of ‘United We Stand.’ The Center also engages in legal research, analysis, and publishes books in Hungarian and English.
Club President Gavin Wax highlighted Szánthó’s exceptional skills in establishing connections between American and European conservatives. The Club greatly values his fact-based, academic approach to decision-making and analysis, as well as his ability to inspire teams to excel. Mr Szánthó’s determination to push back against leftist tyranny and combat fake news is truly inspiring, and the club members will benefit from his insights as he serves on the Board of Advisors, the Club stated.
Expressing his gratitude for the appointment as the first Board of Advisors member from continental Europe, Mr Szánthó emphasised that this recognition reflects the shared values between New York and Hungarian conservatives in the struggle against ‘the increasingly barbaric forces of the global Left.’ He stressed the importance of standing up for our common values of God, homeland, and family, as the adversaries of conservatism ‘have distorted our world beyond recognition.’ Szánthó particularly highlighted the situation in Ukraine, where liberals advocate for more violence, while conservatives advise, based on common sense, to ‘Make Kids not War,’ a sentiment once even shared by hippies in San Francisco.
The appointment of Szánthó to the Board of Advisors follows a partnership agreement between the New York Young Republican Club and the Center for Fundamental Rights on 22 February 2023. The agreement, signed by Szánthó and Wax in Budapest, Hungary, emphasised that conservatives worldwide face similar threats. Despite claims by proponents of globalist liberalism that international cooperation among conservative forces is impossible, the agreement aimed to prove them wrong. The focus was on cooperation between national forces rather than supranationalism.
