The roster of speakers for CPAC Hungary 2024 has been expanded with some real American ‘heavyweights’. This year’s event holds particular significance as it occurs amidst the campaign for the crucial European Parliament elections in June.

American ‘heavyweights’ have been invited to this year’s CPAC Hungary event, as announced by Miklós Szánthó, Director General of the Centre for Fundamental Rights, in a video posted on his Facebook page on Friday. Szántó said that the conference starting in three weeks will feature speakers from the United States such as Senator Markwayne Mullin, also a former cage fighter, and Congressman Andy Harris, who has spent 13 years battling in the ‘liberal jungle,’ successfully fending off attacks from gender fanatics and the liberal media.

‘Joining us will be a true border warrior, Congressman Keith Self, renowned for his daredevil approach to border protection. He is a former military officer and has confronted the challenges of the secret police,’ Miklós Szánthó added.

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Hungary is set to take place for the third time in Budapest on April 25–26.

Hungary stands as the exclusive European destination

of the international conference series, which gathers conservative thinkers and politicians from various corners of the globe including Brazil, Israel, Mexico, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and the United States.

Additionally, slated to attend this year’s event in the Hungarian capital are Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV), which emerged victorious in last year’s elections, and Santiago Abascal, president of the Spanish VOX party. Miklós Szánthó has not yet disclosed the identities of the remaining guests. Concluding the video, he declared: ‘We are the wokebusters, and this year, we are draining the swamp!’

‘The CPAC, originally the annual rally of the American right since the 1970s, saw its first European forum organized by the Center for Fundamental Rights in the Hungarian capital in 2022. The event, initially centred around the values of “God, Country, Family,” drew over 1,500 attendees, including nearly 200 foreign decision-makers, journalists, and influencers. It sparked significant interest, fostering closer alliances with our allies while eliciting a vehement reaction from the liberal side,’ states the official CPAC Hungary website.

At last year’s event, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán delivered a speech addressing, among other thing, the war in Ukraine and the proliferation of the ‘woke mind’ virus.

‘We are all under attack, in Europe as much as in America…The attack is not of an economic nature, we are facing a biological weapon, they launched a virus attack against us. This virus was developed in progressive liberal laboratories…This virus didn’t escape from the laboratory, but was developed, propagated and spread worldwide,’

he said at the time. PM Orbán also expressed his preference for the future US presidency following the November elections. He asserted that there would be no conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and peace would ensue if Donald Trump were to return to the White House. Orbán even directly appealed to the former US President, stating: ‘Please come back, Mr. President!’ Trump also greeted the gathering in a video message.

This year’s CPAC Hungary holds particular significance as it unfolds amidst the campaign for the European Parliament elections in June.

The stakes are high: there exists a greater opportunity than ever for the European right to make significant strides, potentially upending years of consensus-based decision-making among the European People’s Party (EPP), the Socialists and Democrats (S&D), and the Renew EP political groups. Recent election outcomes in Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, and Slovakia underscore the growing strength of right-wing parties across EU Member States.

In a recent interview with public Kossuth radio, Orbán highlighted that the pivotal issue in the EP elections transcends party affiliations; rather, it hinges on distinguishing between those who advocate for peace and those who advocate for war. ‘It would be advantageous if voters in Hungary and other European countries were to elect more pro-peace politicians to the European Parliament and fewer pro-war politicians,’ the prime minister remarked.
