So-called “left liberals” are petitioning in order that the EU countries should apply the most severe sanction (Article VII of the EU Treaty) against Hungary because
Hungary is no longer a democracy. … the situation for women, ethnic minorities and religious groups in Hungary becomes deadlier by the second … along with criminalization of the homeless and attacks on women and the LGBT community, Hungary’s seen a horrific spike in state-sanctioned antisemitism and racism…
Then these hysterolib, shall I say libnazi, liars use this picture, showing a huge crowd demonstrating in Kossuth square in front of the Parliament, to illustrate their petition … which drools about the government’s “crippling the free press“:
At a closer look one can see that the sign in the front says “Nem leszünk gyarmat!” (We won’t be a colony!)… Oh, yes, I took part on that rally with this slogan… It was freezing cold on the 22nd of January, 2012 and I marched together with several hundreds of thousands Hungarians… and we were protesting exactly against those who sign this petition, protesting against the hysterical, vile attacks directed at Hungary then and in support of democratically elected Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. This huge crowd gathered so that EU/IMF wouldn’t do to my country what they did earlier in Italy and Greece when they simply replaced their democratically elected governments with the delegated EU/IMF lackeys.
This petition is a perfect example for that what kind of methods these so-called proponents of free press use.
As opposed to this huge crowd of people supporting the Orbán government, the “champions of free press” could gather only a magnitude smaller crowd on the 2nd of January, 2010 at the height of a very well mediatized international hysteria campaign against Fidesz and PM Orbán. That must be the explanation why these “democrats” (that’s how they always call themselves) try to make their point with a picture of the much bigger pro-government rally.
It goes without saying that the “free press”, such as the Washington Post, the BBC, Süddeutsche Zeitung, etc., all tried very hard to increase the importance of the anti-government rally and to make orts of the pro-government one.
