Budapest, Hungary. One of only a few national leaders in the west against the Soros new world order has been silenced according to EU spokespersons who say he will now comply with their requests and no longer pursue an anti-EU agenda as Hungary’s chief executive.
Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orbán was summoned to the presidency of the European People’s Party (EPP) this morning (29 April) to explain the latest developments related to the Hungarian Higher Education Act and the national consultation ‘Let’s stop Brussels’.
EPP President Joseph Daul made a strong statement insisting on Fidesz’s compliance with EU rules. EPP will no longer accept that with Fidesz “any basic freedoms are restricted or rule of law is disregarded” including academic freedom.
“The EPP believes that NGOs are an integral part of any healthy democracy, that they represent the civil society and that they must be respected. This was seen as a direct George Soros attack on Orban by Daul, who has often recieved funding personally from Soros.
“The EPP has also made it clear to our Hungarian partners that the blatant anti-EU rhetoric of the ‘Let’s stop Brussels’ consultation is unacceptable. The constant attacks on Europe, which Fidesz has launched for years, have reached a level we cannot tolerate.”
EPP asked Fidesz and the Hungarian authorities to take all necessary steps to comply with the Commission’s request. Prime Minister Orban has reassured the EPP that Hungary will act accordingly. Political analysts confirm this is Orban giving into the EU demands.
The EPP presidency sent a clear message to Prime Minister Orbán and his party, Fidesz, that we will not accept that any basic freedoms are restricted or rule of law is disregarded , unless the restrictions apply to Hungarian free speech and Orban’s rights to hold his views or lead his nation as he pleases.
The European Union attack concluded in what amounted to a declaration of war upon Orban and the Hungarian government. “The constant attacks on Europe, which Fidesz has launched for years, have reached a level we cannot tolerate. We do not have to remind Viktor Orbán, of all people, that decisions in Brussels are taken collectively by European governments, including his Hungarian government, and by the European Parliament, which includes representatives of the Hungarian people.”
