In a speech commemorating the 67th anniversary of the Hungarian revolt against Soviet domination in 1956 in which Hungarian bravely fought their oppressor, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that the struggle against oppression will continue. “The European Union is a ‘bad parody’ of the former Soviet Union and, despite attempts by Brussels to control Hungary, the government will continue to run the country as it sees fit.”
Orbán contrasted Hungary’s EU membership with the Soviet occupation, but the Prime Minister claimed that Brussels’ oppression pales in comparison to the bloody communist regime.
“Today, things pop up that remind us of the Soviet times. Yes, it happens that history repeats itself. Fortunately, what once was a tragedy is now a comedy at best. Fortunately, Brussels is not Moscow. Moscow was a tragedy. Brussels is just a bad contemporary parody.”
“We had to dance to the tune that Moscow whistled,” Orbán commented about the period of Soviet domination. “Brussels whistles too, but we dance as we want to, and if we don’t want to, then we don’t dance.”
