On Wednesday, March 20th, the center-right European People’s Party (EPP) bloc suspended Hungary’s governing right-wing populist Fidesz party as the conflict between globalists inside the EU and Viktor Orbán climaxed in the European parliament.
After weeks of deliberation over Fidesz’ destiny inside of the transnational bloc, the EPP voted to suspend the party instead of kicking them out like many had thought they would do.
Leaked documents which surfaced on social media divulged that the EPP drafted a proposal which looked to force Fidesz’s into complying with the demands of globalist forces inside of the European Union.
Included in the proposal was a list of ‘conditions’ that the EPP expected the Hungarians to satisfy. These conditions included things like ending their ‘fake news’ campaign against preeminent globalist and the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Junker, and refraining from any ‘attacks’ of this nature in the future.
The document stated that until Orban’s Fidesz party acquiesces to and implements these demands, their membership in the EPP will be discontinued, meaning they will be unable to vote or hold positions inside of the voting bloc.
The feud between Fidesz and EPP first began in February when the Hungarian government ran a nation-wide poster campaign which depicted Jean-Claude Juncker, the head of the European Commission, as a tool of billionaire globalist George Soros, serving his open borders, pro-mass immigration policies.
For some years now, the Hungarian government and Soros have had an intensely adversarial relationship. Orban’s Fidesz party first launched a nationwide billboard and television advertising campaign which targeted the Hungarian-born American billionaire in the summer of 2017. The campaign used an image of a laughing George Soros with the slogan ‘Let’s not allow Soros to have the last laugh!’ Orban has long accused Soros and his Open Society Foundations of interfering with domestic affairs in Hungary.
Last year, Central European University, a Soros-funded higher education institution which propagates a globalist, neo-Marxist ideology, was made to leave Budapest due to applied pressure from the Fidesz-led Hungarian government.
Fidesz’s recent poster campaign against Soros and Juncker was condemned by globalist EU officials and centrist members of the EPP, who accused Orbán’s party of employing fear-mongering tactics and propagating ‘conspiracy theories.’ Some individuals inside of the bloc called for apologies from Orbán, threatening that Fidesz wouldn’t have a place in the EPP without one.
But Orbán stood firm and argued that the projected electoral success of right-wing populist, anti-mass immigration parties in the upcoming European Parliamentary elections should make members in the center-right bloc more empathetic to Fidesz’s point of view.
The only thing Orbán did apologize for was calling members of the EPP as ‘useful idiots’ for siding with their left-wing globalist peers and supposed opponents ahead of May’s election.
