Deutsch: Brussels and the Hungarian left want to take our freedom

Brussels and the Hungarian left want to take our freedom but the allied ruling Fidesz and Christian Democrats (KDNP) will defend it, Fidesz's MEP Tamas Deutsch told the party's 29th congress in Budapest on Sunday.

“Brussels is abusing its power and waging a cold civil war against Poland and Hungary. They are putting on a full-court press to take our freedom,” he said. “In the 21st century, there are still those who think they can take it, those who want to tell us how we should live”, Deutsch said.

“They would destroy everything that our freedom is based on: the cohesion of our families, the traditional form of marriage and raising children, our debating communities based on free thinking, our churches, and finally our national sovereignty,” he said.

He said that Fidesz-KDNP will defend the country’s freedom both in Brussels and Budapest. They will defend the freedom of Hungarians to decide on utility prices and will stand up for the development funding that Hungary is entitled to.

Fidesz-KDNP will continue to say no to immigration, he said, adding that “Brussels wants to force a migrant resettlement quota on us”. Brussels and the Hungarian left also want to take the right of Hungarian parents to decide how to raise their children but Fidesz-KDNP “will say no to aggressive LGBTQI+ sexual propaganda threatening our children”, said Deutsch.

Addressing the congress, Marek Kuczynski, of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice (PiS) highlighted the importance of Polish-Hungarian friendship, noting that freedom and sovereignty were basic values for the two countries.

“The sovereignty of our nations is under attack from both East and West, with the EU trying to force a superstate model on them. Thanks to Hungarian-Polish cooperation and the cooperation of the four Visegrad Group countries – the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia -, central Europe will remain strong, so they must continue to work together,” he said.
