Reading Time: 2 minutes

Hungary – Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán addressed the country on Wednesday 21 July, announcing in a video on his Facebook account that a referendum will soon be held on the child protection law, which is also known as the anti-paedophile law for its clauses concerning the fight against paedophiles. Orbán’s announcement follows threats issued by the European Commission over the new law, which the EU elite considers to be discriminatory against homosexuals.

Brussels wants to force Hungary to accept LGBT propaganda in schools

Brussels has clearly attacked Hungary in recent weeks over the Child Protection Act”,

the Hungarian prime minister explained. “Hungarian laws do not allow sexual propaganda in kindergartens, schools, television and advertisements. […]

Brussels is now calling for a change in the law on public education and in the rules on child protection. […] They complain that what is already established in Western Europe is not possible here. There, LGBTQ activists go into kindergartens and schools and do sex education. They want the same thing here, so the bureaucrats in Brussels threaten, they launch infringement proceedings, they abuse their power.

A referendum to say no to LGBT propaganda aimed at minors

As a result, “the [Hungarian] government is launching a referendum containing five questions:

  1. Do you support the holding of presentations in public education institutions to introduce minors to topics on sexual orientation without the authorization of their parents?
  2. Do you support the promotion of gender reassignment treatments for minors?
  3. Do you support gender reassignment treatments being made available to minors?
  4. Do you support minors being shown, without any restriction, media content of a sexual nature that is capable of influencing their development?
  5. Do you support minors being shown media content that demonstrates gender reassignment?

Viktor Orbán concluded his speech as follows:

I ask you to say ‘No’ to these demands together, just as we said ‘No’ five years ago, when Brussels wanted to force immigrants into Hungary.

At the time, “a referendum and a common will stopped Brussels. We have succeeded once and we will succeed again together.
