Hungary’s Orban condemns EU federalism, LGBTQ ‘offensive’

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban criticized the European Union for its “LGBTQ offensive” and emphasized his government’s commitment to protecting the country’s Christian roots. Orban, a longstanding critic of Brussels, expressed his hope that the upcoming European parliament elections would strengthen governments within the bloc that reject the “federalism” represented by Germany and France.

Since coming to power in 2010, Orban has been at odds with the EU on various issues, including the rule of law, media reforms, and the judiciary. In 2021, he passed a law banning the use of materials promoting homosexuality and gender change in schools, citing the need to safeguard children from “LGBTQ propaganda.” This move further escalated tensions with the EU.

Orban stated that the EU is either an empire or a collection of individual nations, and he warned against the federalists’ attempts to marginalize Hungary. He claimed that the federalists openly desired a change in government in Hungary and Poland in 2022. Poland, which shares similar conservative policies with Hungary, will hold parliamentary elections this autumn, and both countries are currently engaged in a rule-of-law dispute with the EU that has resulted in the suspension of certain EU funds.

Orban argued that the balance between federalists and nations unwilling to relinquish more powers to Brussels was disrupted when Britain left the bloc. He asserted that only Warsaw and Budapest remained steadfast in their anti-federalist stance.

As Hungary’s economic troubles worsened, Orban intensified his anti-LGBT rhetoric. The country experienced an annual inflation rate of over 25% in the first quarter. Orban accused the EU of rejecting Christian heritage, facilitating population replacement through migration, and conducting an LGBTQ offensive.

In conclusion, Prime Minister Orban reiterated his criticism of the EU’s LGBTQ policies and emphasized his government’s commitment to protecting Hungary’s Christian roots. He expressed hope for a strengthening of like-minded governments within the EU and highlighted the ongoing disputes between Hungary, Poland, and the bloc. Orban also drew attention to the economic challenges faced by Hungary and intensified his anti-LGBT rhetoric in response.
