Liberal mainstream launched “global fake news attack” against Hungary

By: V4 Agency

Today liberal mainstream uttlerly disregards facts in its international political debates, it has simply launched a global fake news attack against Hungary, the Hungarian foreign minister said in response to the criticism on the anti-paedophilia law.

“Everything they say is a lie, and what they say has nothing to do with the law we adopted to protect children,” Mr Szijjarto said.

The Hungarian law on the protection of children sets out two rules: children must be protected from paedophiles, and it is the exclusive right of parents to educate their children about sexual orientation,” he added.

Mr Szijjarto called it a lie that the new law was discriminatory against certain groups of the society, as the liberal mainstream had suggested.

The issue was the main topic of the EU summit and heavily affected the mood of the football match between Hungary and Germany in the European Cup. According to the minister, it had been clear for years that the liberal mainstream could not accept that Hungary has a patriotic government which acts on authority of the Hungarian people, puts national interest first, and is “successful despite going against the liberal mainstream.”

The ruling party alliance won three consecutive parliamentary elections, and Hungary achieved one of the highest pre-pandemic economic growth rates in Europe. Speaking about the pandemic response, Mr Szijjarto said that Hungary “proved to be the most successful country” in Europe “both in terms of the economy and health care.”

Mr Szijjarto says the liberals “cannot accept this fact and they immediately attack all our laws,” even before the bills are available in Hungarian, thus exposing the political motives behind their attacks and their lies.

The foreign minister called it an unprecedented incident that Amnesty International projected rainbow lights on the building of the Hungarian embassy in The Hague for an hour on Thursday night “with the assistance and even support of local authorities,” the minister said.

In his assessment, this goes against international law and diplomatic practice. The receiving country has to protect all embassies against any insults, he emphasized, adding that although they asked the Dutch authorities to prevent the incident, they failed to do so.

Regarding the child protection law, Mr Szijjarto said “I refuse to allow NGOs and other organisations funded by unknown people to educate my children about sexual orientation.” He added that it was the parents’ task, responsibility and exclusive right, and the new act reflects that.

Mr Szijjarto recalled that it had happened on numerous occasions that Hungary adopted a law in line with the EU norms, yet it received attacks.

He touched upon the events before the Germany-Hungary football match, “while everyone knows that it has always turned out very badly in history when political issues and ideological debates were mixed with sports.”

Mr Szijjarto called it incredible that something like this could happen in the 21st century before a European football match. He said that what happened was “an unscrupulous and disgusting political campaign … Fans arriving from another European country were constantly provoked within Europe, with an ongoing flow of ideological propaganda.”

In the programme, the minister also talked about the restarting the economy, which was the responsibility of the Operative Board. He said that the first initiatives had already been submitted to the government this week, and the cabinet accepted them. The threshold for R&D investments has been lowered from three million euros to one million euros and projects creating 10 new R&D jobs are now eligible for support, the minister noted.

The government ensured more flexible laws necessary for export development for Eximbank, which opened new routes for Hungarian export. The cabinet also set up a support scheme for foreign investments by Hungarian companies and eased employment rules to facilitate job creation.
