Budapest, June 14 (MTI) – The government’s billboards warning migrants not to steal the jobs of Hungarians will make it hard for Prime Minister Viktor Orban to complain to Austria about a similar campaign directed against Hungarians, according to the opposition leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) party.

Austria’s Freedom Party has compared Hungarians taking up jobs in Austria to the Mongol invasion of Europe, “thereby boosting” a campaign over the past few months which is now aimed at Hungarians working in Austria, DK lawmaker Szabolcs Kerek-Barczy said. Yet one of the far-right party’s MEPs has applauded the campaign by Fidesz against migrants.

Kerek-Barczy said Orban was not fit to represent the national interest with his “campaign to incite hatred” and has no moral grounds to ask Austrian government leaders to intervene in the hate campaign directed against Hungarians.

The ruling Fidesz party said in response that “Ferenc Gyurcsany is welcoming economic migrants with open arms” after having campaigned against Hungarians living in other countries — referring back to Gyurcsany’s stance against extending citizenship to Hungarians living in other countries in a referendum in December 2004.

The Fidesz statement said DK was willfully merging together the concept of free movement of people in the European Union with the influx of economic migrants into the EU, which it said was “an unbearable burden, bringing about irreversible developments for the whole of Europe and Hungary.” Immigration is a threat to the jobs and security of the Hungarian people, Fidesz said, adding that “the left is still taking the side of immigrants”.

  1. I.
    You must respect our Prime Minister, who was democratically elected twice times. Why was He elected twice? Why do You NOT know about His and the Hungarian peoples’ good deeds and good aims?

    A small group, which has lost its power in Hungary BUT has very good media connections worldwide spreads hateful propaganda about Viktor Orbán and about the Hungarian people (because he represents the majority’s will) abroad, from where you got Your information about Hungary too!

    The majority has observed many times about how this small group manipulates others via media.

  2. Maria Farkas, I totally agree with you. I am a brit and have been living in Hungary for over 5 years now, and married to a wonderful Hungarian Lady. I believe Victor Orbán is the best prime minister this world has seen. The minority left parties including JOBBIK, are nothing but propogandists, and think nothing of the country or its people, but their own power and glory. They all want disbanding and the leaders, Gyucsány and co, want putting into prison for the unhealthy things they did in the past and are doing now. This country needed a good leader, and now they have one with a good ruling party. I am a true democrat (concervative), and a hater of comunism and socialism as they serve no purpose and offer no good which ever country they are in. The socialists here are angry because they have lost 4 elections in the past 5 years+, and they know they are all unfit to rule themselves, let alone their supposed country, Hungary.
