Mária Schmidt on Western political leaders: They are ungrateful, shameless


Neither the Americans nor the Europeans honored the deceased with their presence, whom they once considered their “hero”. It is particularly striking that there was not a single German politician who expressed his gratitude to Gorbachev, without whom their country would still be divided.

Mária Schmidt wrote in her post today. The historian, who himself participated in the funeral of the last leader of the Soviet Union as a member of Viktor Orbán’s delegation, concluded that Western politicians have in fact always ignored Mikhail Gorbachev.

“While he was alive, he was the darling of the West. Because it helped them to an easy victory in the Cold War.

Because he made a series of unilateral gestures, trusting that the Americans and the “developed West” would reciprocate them. With a benevolent hope resembling a country naive, he withdrew his occupying troops from our region, agreed to the German unity, the NATO membership of the old and new Germany thus created. The Western top politicians took him one by one and paid him off by flattering him with their media and decorating him with the meaningless Nobel Peace Prize (1990),” Mária Schmidt detailed the situation of the former Soviet party secretary general.

In his writing, he comes to the conclusion that

the ingratitude and shamelessness of the Western leaders is also shown by the fact that, apart from the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, there was no other leading politician in the world who attended the funeral at the weekend.

According to Mária Schmidt, this was not always the case. “When the number one leaders of the Soviet Union passed away, the leaders of the Western world came to their funerals trampling each other’s ankles to testify that they considered the deceased to be their worthy opponents, or rather their enemies, whom they respect even when they are dead,” he recalled.

“Viktor Orbán, the anti-communist freedom fighter, who on June 16, 1989, at the reburial of Imre Nagy and his fellow martyrs, publicly called on the still-intact Soviet Union to withdraw its occupying army from Hungary and allow democratic elections, bowed his head at Gorbachev’s funeral and thanked him on behalf of our country to him and his family for not shooting, for withdrawing the Soviet troops from our country and thus returning the freedom and independence of our country,” the historian reminded in his post.

Mária Schmidt wrote about the Germans:

The day of the funeral made it clear that the Germans’ new religion is cowardice.

“Their leaders are cowards, ungrateful, uncultured, disrespectful. They detached themselves from European culture, they are shapeless, faceless nobodys. And some Germans not only tolerate them, but also follow them,” he explained.

He added: “Therefore, no one should make gestures or favors to the Germans, because they do not appreciate it and will not reciprocate!”
