The following video was recorded yesterday (April 17) in the European Parliament. It’s part of a debate on a “ [m]otion for a resolution on the need to establish a European Values Instrument to support civil society organisations which promote fundamental values within the European Union at local and national level”.
The speaker is Krisztina Morvai, an independent Hungarian MEP who supports Fidesz. She was originally elected on a Jobbik ticket, but ended her association when Jobbik joined up with the Progressives and Communists, and formed an alliance with George Soros.
This issue demands more context, but first let’s watch the video. Many thanks to CrossWare for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
Two of the clauses in the EP motion are worth noting. First, the motion’s supporters want to interfere in member states’ internal affairs — especially, one would assume, those of the Visegrad Four — using CSOs:
Calls for the EU to set up a dedicated funding instrument — which could be called the European Values Instrument — for the promotion and protection of the values enshrined in Article 2 of the TEU, especially democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights, within the EU budget under the next, post-2020 multiannual financial framework (MFF), with a funding level corresponding to at least that of the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights, which serves similar purposes beyond the Union’s borders; recommends that this instrument’s structural priority should be to create a healthy and sustainable CSO sector at national and local level with the capacity to fulfil its role in safeguarding these values;…
And they intend to spread globalist propaganda using EU funding:
Considers that the instrument should specifically target projects and initiatives promoting European values at local and national level, such as civic participation projects and advocacy and other watchdog activities, and that transnational projects and initiatives should play only a subsidiary role; believes that particular emphasis should be placed on building the capacity of CSOs to engage with the general public so as to increase its understanding of pluralistic and participatory democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights;…
The context for Ms. Morvai’s call-out to the “People’s Party”: She is referring to the membership of Fidesz and KDNP in the European People’s Party group, which is the traditional group for Christian Democrats and similar parties. However, the other “Islamophobes” (Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen, the Lega, etc.) in the EP have moved over to the ENF (Europe of Nations and Freedom).
It’s not unreasonable to surmise that if the EPP doesn’t come out against this motion — and it includes members of the CDU, Angela Merkel’s party, so it might not — the Hungarians may well decide to leave the EPP and join the ENF. That would significantly augment the latter.
One final thought: Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Fidesz-KDNP now have a super-majority in Parliament, and can pass laws targeting NGOs that receive funding from certain foreign entities or governments. However, I’m not sure if they can legally restrict or forbid NGOs funded by the EU — it may be a violation of the treaty that made Hungary a member of the EU. If so, it could explain why Soros and his allies chose to route their pushback through the European Parliament.
Momentous decision-points may lie directly ahead. For instance: If it comes down to a choice between allowing these EU-funded CSOs and leaving the EU, which one will Mr. Orbán choose?
|0:10||Thank you very much. I would like to|
|0:14||request that European taxpayers immediately|
|0:18||protest against this outrageous|
|0:22||proposal, which essence is the following:|
|0:26||they want to destabilize Poland|
|0:30||and Hungary to such an extent that they provide|
|0:34||funds from the European Union to non-governmental|
|0:38||organizations with that obvious goal,|
|0:42||to undermine the democratically-elected|
|0:46||governments, smash them; this is what we can see in Hungary, too.|
|0:50||The other target group, the “civilian” organizations|
|0:54||that support mass migration, will also be|
|0:58||getting money. We must protest! And I would like|
|1:02||to ask the representatives of the People’s Party, if they are able to hear what|
|1:06||I am saying, to look up and make eye-contact with me.|
|1:10||How will the People’s Party [European People’s Party group] vote on this issue?|
|1:14||The whole of Europe is watching your future.|
|1:18||This will determine it, and we are very curious|
|1:22||whether the People’s Party will vote for this ignominy?!|
|1:26||Whether they will protest against it? I am asking that you do so! Thank you!
