The president of the Democratic Coalition held his usual annual appraiser online.
Ferenc Gyurcsány, the president of the Democratic Coalition, held an annual review for the 17th time.
“If we were to watch a movie, we would be witnessing real dramatic, crime-like scenes
The politician began his speech. He thinks we’ve made more phone calls in the last year, watched a lot of TV, sat a lot in front of the computer, but we miss a lot of things and hell is a hard life that way. That is not what we are figuring out, many are frustrated and lose confidence. The texts that the planet has become a small village are now real. As the virus attacks globally, Gyurcsány continued, we must defend ourselves globally, because we can only win together. According to him, even the most pessimistic see that there is no species other than man that has not reached the brink of extinction as a result of such a virus. The President of the DK stressed here the importance of humanity developing a vaccine in one year, which also shows that we are capable of standing up. He stated that there is no public affair greater than a pandemic.
– If this is really a national matter, as the government says, then we should be considered a partner
He said, then added: we are children of the homeland, but we are not children of the government and cannot treat us as children. According to him, the difference between left-wing and conservative politicians is huge because the former group does not believe in the role of men in the family. They prefer to consider family members as partners. According to Ferenc Gyurcsány, a false myth has been overthrown about the government in the past year. “A lot of people thought they were a little like that, they steal a little bit, but they can steer.” Now, however, it turns out that they cannot govern, the former prime minister said. He added that the Orbans are throwing a concert at many, but the operation of the country, the service of the real public good, is lagging behind. We have never seen so many contradictory statements and steps like last year.
– The Hungarian government faced reality, and reality defeated the Hungarian government. They actually failed
He noted. According to the party chairman, two questions remain: whether to vaccinate ourselves and why. DK recommends that everyone vaccinate themselves, for themselves and others. And skeptics are told that the scientific community around the world thinks there is a much higher risk of someone not vaccinating themselves than they do.
– How do we vaccinate ourselves?
He asked. He stated that whether a vaccine is good or not, there is a European authority that authorizes it. Therefore, Ferenc Gyurcsány suggests that everyone be vaccinated with a vaccine that is approved by the European authority, and not with what the Foreign Minister recommends. Because he doesn’t have the knowledge to be licensed. In his speech, the party chairman stated that Fidesz was taking over a spiritual takeover, which had first begun with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and is now continuing with the takeover of universities. This means, according to him, that university assets are handed over to people close to the government, i.e. in private hands. He says it is wrong to turn these institutions into intellectual prisons. Therefore, the opposition is trying to prevent higher education, which is a piece of national existence, from escaping democratic control. Ferenc Gyurcsány believes that universities are still the fields of free spirit, but the head of government does not like this, he “likes the intellectual barracks”. At the same time, Gyurcsány would remind him that the free spirit was always critical. He mentioned Imre Makovecz and the British philosopher Roger Scruton as examples. According to him, there is glory for the students of SZFE, be blessed, because they have shown many of us an example of standing and courage. According to Ferenc Gyurcsány, the 21st century did not really start in Hungary, because what would characterize it did not come into our everyday life. We are captivated by the debates of the past, and they are still about the historical debates of the 20th century, not about how successful the country should be.
– We’re closing English-language kindergartens
He noted, also accusing him of having to take a pandemic to build digital education. – What’s in your home interest? He asked the question and answered it. According to him, the number one interest is survival, which means passing on the legacy of the past, nurturing the language, but this needs to be taken further. – We should create a Hungary that can keep the citizens of the country. We should already deal with the future, because we have dealt with the past enough – Ferenc Gyurcsány summed up. Referring to the national community is not an excuse for sin, and it is not patriotism for someone to steal. It is not urination, it is not a lack of mercy. What they do systematically and try to disguise patriotism with their cloaks.
– In fact, our country is being robbed and dishonored with reference to the nation
Said the party chairman about the government. He says the community is made up of individuals, but the government forgets that. In fact, they are not governed by the interests of the community, but by their own considerations. He said most people want to be happy, they need some freedom to do that. An important part of this is the freedom of love. There is no authority for public authority to have a say in who loves whom and how.
“Get your hands off our privacy, it’s not between you.”
He sent a message to the government. Ferenc Gyurcsány also spoke about the fact that today’s ruling party has excellent relations with the Polish Law and Justice Party, which has just introduced the most dramatic abortion law in Europe. This forces women to give birth to non-viable or severely ill fetuses, in exchange for setting up crying rooms in hospitals.
– Would that be Christian politics?
He asked, then turned to Alexei Navalny’s poisoning. In this connection, Gyurcsany spoke about the fact that the Russian opposition politician tried to form a party 11 times, but was never registered. He says it’s not okay for someone to try to carve a political slogan out of the Christian faith. According to the former prime minister, good things have also happened in the past year, the best being the patriotic, democratic opposition to the Orbán regime. This is of historical significance, but Ferenc Gyurcsány realizes that it took a long time for everyone to understand: there has long been no democratic competition in Hungary. Rather, the opposition must compete in an autocratic, in many respects dictatorial system. According to him, it was not one opposition politician who created this unity, but the recognition of the common interest. The politician believes there is still terrible work ahead for the collaborators, but if they move at such a pace, they will make it along the way. He recalled that this year will be 10 years since the formation of the DK and they now have roughly one million voters. “We’ve learned to walk in the storm, go one way, and leave no one alone.” Ever since we existed, we’ve only been upwind, but we can handle it, he said. He noted that they have not made a deal with Fides and will not make a deal, the ruling party cannot blackmail them. Ferenc Gyurcsány believes that 2020 also brought hope, which was the victory of Joe Biden. The party president has seen Donald Trump’s rule as awful, but sees nationalist, anti-elite, populist politicians in decline in the world. Viktor Orbán has also lost ground in Europe, but is still fucking at home. – The victim must be stripped, because the victims will not become a strong nation. Not because they don’t treat us annoying at times. You just have to be smarter, that’s the solution, he said. Therefore, he wants Hungary to give strength, support to the opposition of the system, to any of its parties, and to prepare the country for next year’s election. In the end, he promised that they would create a better country: normality, acceptance, and it would be easier to be at home in the homeland.
