Ever since the Hungarian government decided to pave the way for a sovereign and independent Hungary, the international left has been trying its best to wrestle back control and force their agenda upon the people of Hungary.
A prominent member of this “esteemed” circle is the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, Dunja Mijatović. Mijatović, the granddaughter of a Yugoslav partisan leader and, unsurprisingly, the daughter of a communist politician (turned social democrat, of course), followed the family tradition and got into politics.
Mijatović is basically the ghost of Christmas past. Every year she comes back, using her office as a Council of Europe Commissioner, to haunt the Hungarian government to renounce a piece of legislation.
This year, she chose to attack the Sovereignty Protection Law, which Hungary was forced to implement as the authorities’ post-election investigation discovered that the opposition parties used illicit foreign funding during the last general elections in Hungary.
The heart of this sovereignty debate lies in the new law and the proposed Sovereignty Protection Office. Contrary to Commissioner Mijatović’s claims, the law is far from being an authoritarian tool; rather, it is to strengthen our crucial bulwarks, ensuring the integrity of Hungary's political processes and guarding them against foreign meddling. The role of the Sovereignty Protection Office, integral to this legislation, is not to exert authoritative control but to monitor and expose foreign interventions that could undermine Hungary's sovereignty.
Central to our argument is the principle that political funding and influence should remain free from foreign state and corporate manipulation. That is, against exactly what happened not even a year ago.
This stance of course challenges Mijatović's apprehensions, as it hinders global actors, namely the Soros Network and the global leftist elite in general, from forcing their influence upon the Hungarian people.
So let me ask this, dear Commissioner:
How do you and your comrades interpret “activities aimed at influencing democratic debate,” as you kindly put it in your statement?
Because from where I am sitting, it looks exactly like you aim to “weaponize” your position as an EU commissioner “against anybody who may be considered an adversary” under the guise of protecting human rights.
Just because we are no longer willing to “dance to your tune".
Therefore, all I can say is see you next year, Commissioner, and Merry Christmas!
