Viktor Orban, the Hungarian Prime Minister, has called for a referendum to review his child protection law. This has gotten Eurocrats in a frenzy over clauses that ban teachers from teaching LGBT-themed classes.
Last night, Orban, a family-focused leader, posted a Facebook video in which he said: “In recent weeks, Brussels have clearly attacked Hungary over the child protection law.
Hungarian laws do not permit sexual propaganda in kindergartens, schools, on television, and in advertisements.
There are many “attacks”. Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, stated in mid-June that she was “very concerned about” the law.
Von der Leyen added, “No one should discriminate on the basis of their sexual orientation.” The Commission opened legal proceedings a week later.
17 EU countries wrote a letter to Hungarian officials pledging to continue fighting discrimination against the LGBTI community.
Orban now faces a real problem due to the EU’s decision not to release Covid recovery funds until LGBT teaching restrictions have been removed. Brussels’ strong action against Hungary coincides perfectly with a directive to the Polish government to repeal constitutional amendments intended to eliminate communist-era judges. The EU was fully expecting this order from Warsaw’s government.
According to The Daily Express, Justice Minister Judit Varga has criticized the EU’s Facebook page for “blackmailing” Hungary.
“We reject biased politically motivated, professionally unrelated accusations, which cites the opinion of the NGOs,” wrote Varga on social media.
“Enough with the fake mantras!
“The Commission has once again proved that a politically biased institution cannot be suitable for comparing complex legal systems in accordance with the rule of law.
“We continue to protect the honour of the homeland, stick to the child protection law and do not allow the LGBTQ lobby into our public education institutions!”
