Back in April, I wrote an article outlining the positive nature of Hungary’s new constitution written and passed by the center-right Fidesz party. The constitution is pro-Christian, pro-family, and nationalistic, so I predicted that the usual suspects would be out in force to attack it. Unfortunately, this has come to pass. Not only did the Fidesz party enact this new constitution, but they also moved to bring the Hungarian central bank under the oversight of elected officials, instead of leaving it in the hands of unelected and unsupervised bureaucrats. The result – and this would be absolutely hilarious if it were not so screwed up – was that the Hungarian Socialist Party (read: communists) and the unelected voting-in-secret EU bureaucrats in Brussels accused the Fidesz party, which received over two thirds of the votes last election, of acting undemocratically. Now, I am not a big fan of the institution of democracy, but when we see the Marxists, communists, globalists, and bureaucrats on one side and the democratically-elected, center-right Christian nationalists on the other, choosing sides is not very difficult at all. The attack on Hungary not only includes legal attacks from the EUSSR, but also entails the International Monetary Fund attempting, with some success, to ruin the Hungarian economy, seeking to force them back into the international banking fold.
You can read a fuller account of this at LewRockwell’s blog:
And poor Viktor Orban [member of the Fidesz party and current Hungarian Prime Minister]. Just over twenty years ago the young Hungarian had the temerity to stand up at the reburial of the hero of the 1956 uprising to demand that Soviet troops leave and that the communist regime agree to hold free and democratic elections. The communists didn’t like him very much. Orban and many other anti-communists of that era were fighting unelected Moscow-based occupiers who stole his country’s sovereignty and ruined its economy for ideological reasons. Now, as Hungary’s prime minister, he is fighting against an unelected Brussels and Washington-based force that seeks to steal (what’s left of) his country’s sovereignty and ruin its economy for ideological reasons.
The Europeans — and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — are bearing down on the Hungarian government, attacking its “authoritarian tendencies” and demanding that Orban restore democracy. . . .
So what is the problem with Orban? Well the “problem” for Orban and his center-right political party Fidesz is actually not a lack of democracy, but rather too much democracy! His party was elected with an unprecedented two-thirds majority in 2010 by an electorate brought to its knees by the financial mismanagement and corruption of the long-ruling renamed communists, now called the Hungarian Socialist Party. . . .
What horrid things did the Orban government do? Well they initiated the replacement of the Stalin-era constitution, but included therein what are to today’s Washington and Brussels totally unacceptable language. . . .
Orban’s other divergences from “democracy” according to the European Commission and the US administration include using his mandate to bring the Hungarian central bank under the oversight of elected officials rather than remain the purview of highly-paid bureaucrats who more often than not do the bidding of their foreign counterparts at the expense of those who pay their salaries. . . .
It is particularly rich to see the European Commission threatening legal action against the Hungarian government unless it “return to democracy” by overturning laws such as the above curb on the power of the central bank and a new mandatory retirement age for judges. The European Commission, that paragon of democracy, is as we know an entirely unelected body that meets and votes in secret.
