Orban is an asshat and this type of work is nothing new.
Over the decades, Pro-Democracy Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) have earned an invaluable reputation for pioneering movements that successfully oppose and overthrow oppressive tyrannical rule all over the world. Without their efforts to spread awareness about social justice issues, human rights and ultimately, democracy, there would be thousands - maybe even millions - of people still living under regimes hostile to both their will and wellbeing. To date many despicable dictators have been shown the door thanks to the tireless efforts of oft-misunderstood yet courageous activist groups, who are willing to put it all on the line for a better world.
I seem to recall CPAC and Matt Schlapp hosting Viktor Orban who proceeded to spread his fascist message while getting standing ovations for attacking the LGBTQ community and spreading racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric.
It demonstrated to all who were watching that it was White Nationalism and anti-miscegenation that brought these people to their feet – all of whom are considered mainstream and highly influential in Republican politics.
This shit’s gotta be stopped. Glad to see Ambassador Power is on the job!
LGBTQ I believe is attacking our rooted culture and heritage and want to groom children. About time someone steps up. And stop calling everyone a racist lol it’s old and proven false over and over again
“The US Government is committing $20 million dollars to bolster civil society”
Funny, I don’t recall any of my elected representatives voting for this. Although, it is refreshing to see how blatantly transparent they are in their attempts to overthrow a democratically elected leader in an EU country.
Orban should have diplomatically expelled her ass immediately and blocked the funding of these organizations from taking money from the US government.
