DALLAS (LifeSiteNews) – In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) taking place this week, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán received monstrous applause for his unapologetic defense of marriage, the traditional family unit, and his open opposition to radical gender ideology.
“Hungary shall protect the institution of marriage as the union of one man and one woman!” Orbán told the cheering crowd at CPAC Dallas on Thursday in a speech titled “How we fight.”
“Family ties shall be based on marriage or the relationship between parents and children. To sum up, the mother is a woman. The father is a man. And leave our kids alone. Full stop. End of discussion,” added the conservative leader, at which point the camera shows members of the crowd giving the Hungarian politician a standing ovation.
Orbán, who has won four consecutive elections in Hungary, also explained that when tackling the current issues in society, “Politics, my friend, is not enough. This war is a culture war. We have to revitalize our churches, our families, our universities and our community institutions.”
Describing how he has achieved political success, Orbán said one of the main factors is his government’s devotion “to law and order without compromise,” humorously adding that his government “decided we don’t need more genders, we need more rangers.”
“Less drag queens and more Chuck Norris,” emphasized the Hungarian, as the crowd responded with laughter.
Immediately after the speech, those on the political left took to social media to accuse the democratically-elected prime minister of being an “authoritarian” and a “dictator,” insisting that Americans who support him likewise deserve to be labeled that way.
“The Republican Party is a full blown authoritarian movement. The American people have taken notice of their extremism and are watching in disgust as the party fawns over Hungarian dictator Viktor Orbán and strips away our freedoms,” wrote left-wing media network MeidasTouch on the company’s Twitter page.
“Nobody speaks for, or gives voice to, today’s Republican voters better than: Viktor Orbán — a real, actual authoritarian. Donald Trump & Ron DeSantis — burgeoning authoritarians. Tucker Carlson — the biggest cheerleader for authoritarianism. This is today’s GOP,” added former Congressman Joe Walsh.
Despite the “authoritarian” accusation, critics of Orbán seem to be largely focused on his desire to keep immigration into the small country limited, or actions he has taken on social issues through the democratic process, such as his government’s decision to ban same-sex “couples” from adopting children or his country’s law preventing people from being allowed to legally “change” their gender.
Hungary recently took a major step to protect children from having their innocence destroyed and being sexualized by LGBT propaganda in schools and by pornography in the mass media.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which expresses agreement and respect for the wishes of the sovereign nation of Hungary to protect its children against the onslaught of LGBT indoctrination propaganda and pornography.
Since passage of the bill the fake news outlets from Europe to America have predictably begun to fabricate outrage and, or, simply lie about the contents of the bill. And, the corrupt European Union has also now started to attack Hungary's efforts to protect children.
For doing the hard and good thing, Hungary now needs our support.
The bill, which was passed last week, specifically prohibits showing pornographic material or content portraying homosexuality or transgenderism to minors under the age of 18. Other measures include a registry of sex offenders, regulations on sexual education, and stronger policies against child pornography.
This policy is to be welcomed as a pro-active measure against the liberal and LGBT propaganda machine which is steadily encroaching on Hungary's borders, and which threatens to tear down Christian civilization altogether.
Indeed, the same week that this law was passed in Hungary, Vienna's (Austria) deputy mayor distributed "Rainbow Family" information boxes to 350 kindergartens in the Austrian capital. And, Vienna is only about 50 miles from the Hungarian border!
But, never satisfied with corrupting the children of their own countries, LGBT activists and their accomplices in the EU have been quick to castigate Hungary, claiming that the Budapest government has "discriminated" against homosexuals with their law to protect children, and in doing so, has violated EU law.
However, Hungary's Justice Minister, Judit Varga, set the record straight in an interview with Hungarian journalists, stating:
"This is one of a number of declarations declaring certain Hungarian measures to be contrary to EU law without a thorough examination. The fake news that has taken wing in these statements is completely unfounded.
In Hungary's view, the legislation has nothing to do with EU law. The issue of subsidiarity and constitutional, national identity is a matter for the Member States. Furthermore, the European Charter of Human Rights also says that a parent has the right to determine the direction of their children's development in a culturally traditional background."
And, more broadly, Viktor Orbán, Hungary's Prime Minister, had this to say about Hungary's new law:
"The current left-wing campaign against Hungary is further proof that today, the left is the enemy of freedom, because instead of freedom of speech, they want political correctness as defined by them, and hegemony of opinion instead of a pluralism of ideas.
The new Hungarian law does not conflict with any lofty ideals or European laws. The new Hungarian law simply states clearly that only parents can decide on the sexual education of their children. Education in schools must not be in conflict with the will of parents; it must at most be supplementary, its form and content must be clearly defined and it must be subject to parental consent.
Parents also rightly expect that on platforms used by our children, pornography, sexuality for its own sake, homosexuality and gender reassignment programs should not be available. These restrictions must also be defined with surgical precision. In Hungary, no one has a say in how adults live their lives. In our view, a free adult should not have to give an account of his life in front of any secular authority — only before God when the time comes."
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports the government of Hungary in their passage of this pro-active child protection measure banning LGBT propaganda and pornography for under-18s.

In fact, one critic, Princeton University sociologist Kim Lane Scheppele, has admitted that “Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities on Earth. It feels so functional and free — you get there and think ‘this can’t possibly be a dictatorship,’” but claims that is not because Hungary is indeed a free country, but rather because Orbán engages in “21st-century repression” with which he is able to achieve his goals through “changes to the Constitution, rather than through violence.”
As noted by LifeSiteNews, while Orbán is often referred to as a “dictator” by many in the mainstream media, the truth remains that in the country’s most recent election, in April, Orbán soared to a supermajority in Parliament, capturing over two-thirds of the seats despite early polls predicting he would be ousted.
