BUDAPEST (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-life and pro-family Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has won a fourth term as the Central European nation’s leader after his conservative Fidesz Party’s landslide success at the polls was announced Sunday.
58-year old Orbán fought off a six-party coalition aimed at unseating him to take a supermajority in Parliament, with Fidesz now holding 135 of the 199 available seats, just under 68 percent, and the opposition bloc taking just 56 seats.
Orbán, who has presided over Hungary for 12 years and is the European Union’s (EU) longest serving prime minister, will now rule for a further four, despite early polls predicting he would be ousted.
The prime minister was welcomed by a crowd cheering his name Sunday night as polling results showed his success. Addressing his supporters, Orbán said that they “have won a great victory – a victory so great you can see it from the moon and certainly from Brussels.”
“The entire world can see that our brand of Christian democratic, conservative, patriotic politics has won.”
“We are sending Europe a message that this is not the past – this is the future, our common European future.”
Orbán received messages of praise upon his re-election from conservative politicians and commentators, including France’s Marine Le Pen who said that “[w]hen the people vote, the people win.”
David Kurten, leader of the U.K.’s conservative Heritage Party, congratulated Orbán on Twitter following his win, supporting the Hungarian leader’s strong pro-family stance.
Congratulations to Viktor Orban on winning the Hungarian general election once again.
Unlike other Western leaders, he supports the traditional family, protects children from LGBTQQIAAPPP+ activists and opposes sending weapons to Ukraine.https://t.co/R9L4LDK0mn

The six opposition parties, some of which purport to uphold conservative values while others align with the political left, had joined forces in an attempt to put aside their differences for the sake of defeating Orbán, ultimately failing to persuade the Hungarian people that Orbán is a “Hungarian Putin,” per their campaign posters.
SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade. *Anyone - no matter where you reside - can sign this petition!
For protecting the innocence of his state's youngest schoolchildren and standing up to the bullies in the LGBT lobby, Governor Ron DeSantis has predictably been on the receiving end of sustained attacks from LGBT activists and their numerous allies in the leftist mainstream media.
And now, the Disney Corporation - one of Florida's biggest employers - has decided to interfere in politics and pick a fight with DeSantis over the new law.
BUT, Florida parents, and parents across the country, are overjoyed that a governor is finally taking seriously their concerns about the early sexualization of our nation's children!
SIGN, THANK, and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with this petition which will be delivered to Governor DeSantis' office and CC'ed to Disney, and which tells the Governor that we thank him for, and will stand with him in, protecting our schoolchildren from LGBT indoctrination.
This common sense legislation, known as the Parental Rights in Education Act, prohibits instruction pertaining to sexual orientation, "gender identity" and transgenderism in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade classrooms across the state of Florida.
And, the new law also puts stronger limits on such discussions for older children, frustrating a primary tenet of the radical left's plan to encroach upon impressionable young minds.
Media talking heads and political opponents, ranging from radical LGBT activist groups to morally corrupt corporations like Disney, dubbed HB 1557 the "Don't Say Gay" Bill.
But, the truth is that such sensitive, personal subjects are not the job of schools to cover, but the job of parents alone, who, under the bill, would be allowed to take legal action against school districts that violate its provisions.
By their hateful reaction to the bill (now law) and to Governor DeSantis, one can only assume that Disney actually despises parents and their role as the primary educator of their children, especially in, but not limited to, areas of sexual conduct and morals.
Indeed, the extreme volume of manufactured outrage on this particular piece of legislation reveals the following significant nugget of information: one of the seminal means the LGBT "community" counts on to continue attracting people into their ranks, or as so-called "allies," is by brainwashing little, unsuspecting children without their, or their parents', consent.
We know it, and they know it. And, finally, someone is doing something about it.
SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade.
Children's innocence is worth it and Disney, and its chairman Bob Chapek, should be ashamed of themselves for threatening to interfere in state politics because they are offended that children's minds will no longer be violated.
We must encourage people like Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature not to be blackmailed and not to be afraid...
If Disney wants to escalate things, then conservative and Christian parents might be finally persuaded not to visit Disneyland and Disney World, nor buy Disney products, nor watch Disney films.
Conservatives and Christians, and right-thinking people from all walks of life, need to start playing hardball with the likes of Disney.
We saw what happens when parents show their power in Virginia last year, so any further action on this matter by Florida Democrats and their allies in Disney’s executive leadership will be at their own peril.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to THANK and STAND WITH Governor Ron DeSantis for protecting children from LGBT propaganda, and from Disney's bullying, slurs and legal threats.

Peter Marki-Zay, the supposedly Christian conservative leading the opposition effort, conceded Sunday night, saying that the group had done “everything humanly possible” to challenge Fidesz’s public support while accusing the party of basing its campaign on “hate and lies.”
“We will stay in this country, stand up for each other, hold hands, and won’t let each other go,” Marki-Zay said.
In his victory speech, Orbán noted that his party faced a broad array of political opponents, far beyond those on the ballot.
“This victory is one to remember, maybe even for the rest of our lives, because we had the biggest [range of opponents to] overpower. The left at home, the international left, the bureaucrats in Brussels, the money of the Soros empire, the international mainstream media, and even the Ukrainian president in the end,” Orbán said, alluding to Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky, who criticized him for keeping Hungarian troops and weapons out of the war with Russia.
Hungary has also faced fierce opposition from within the EU over social and political issues; the European Parliament voted in March to withdraw funding to the country over its refusal to bow to the bloc’s pro-LGBT stance.
The EU criticized legislation recently enacted in Hungary known as the Child Protection Law, banning the promotion of homosexuality, “transgenderism,” and pornographic materials to minors in schools as well as cracking down on pedophilia.
Hungary held a referendum on the legislation on Sunday alongside the parliamentary election, asking citizens whether they thought schools should teach children about homosexuality and “sex change procedures” without parental consent, as well as the promotion of media content supporting the LGBT ideology.
The referendum was rendered unsuccessful, however, as over 50 percent of the votes cast were found to be invalid or otherwise spoiled.
While the referendum failed, the Child Protection Law still stands and is expected to be upheld by Fidesz.
