A letter signed by members of the liberal, anti-Hungary clique in the European Parliament calls upon the OSCE to send a “full-scale observation mission” to Hungary to monitor the upcoming April 3 general elections.
It’s quite unnecessary, as Hungarian elections are as free and fair as any other elections in the European Union. And, by the way, it’s a matter of routine that we have election observers, so if they really want to, they should absolutely come to Budapest and witness our election system at work. But enough already with the political grandstanding!
In case you had any doubts about the political motive behind this circus, here are some things you should know about the people pushing the initiative.
For starters, German Green MEP Daniel Freund, the main author of the letter, previously worked for five years at Transparency International, one of George Soros’ most prominent “watchdogs,” an organization that has been actively engaged in denegrating Hungary on the international scene. Considering that he was on Soros’ payroll for so long (and, who knows, maybe still is), it’s not surprising that Freund has soldiered on in the European Parliament with the “good work” he started back at TI.
Another name among the signatories my regular readers will certainly recognize is Katarina Barley. Last October, MEP Barley rose to notoriety for proposing to “starve out” Hungary and Poland because they are “working on dismantling the rule of law.” Barley is joined by Gwendoline Delbos-Corfield, a French Green MEP, who drafted the notorious LIBE committee’s latest report on Hungary’s rule of law.
What’s more, and this is where it gets particularly troublesome, signatories include members of Ferenc Gyurcsány’s “Democratic Coalition” and MEPs from the liberal Momentum party, political elements who – worried that their campaign to win voters at home is failing – are working to undermine confidence in their own country’s electoral system. It’s shameful, but, once again, not surprising. When the Hungarian opposition loses the election in April, as I predict they will, they will have to point the finger at something, and with the international Soros Orchestra they find a willing accomplice.
It’s election season in Hungary, and our opponents will spare no effort nor money to help Hungary’s pro-migration, leftist-far-right coalition.
