The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) criticised the Hungarian government for campaigns that have created a forum for the rise of hate speech.
The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), established by the Council of Europe have published their 6th report on Hungary. The Commission slams the Hungarian government for giving space to hate speech, napi.hu reports.
The report lists several good practices since the latest installment of ECRI’s proposals was suggested back in 2015. They highlight how the authorities and civil society organisations have seriously tried offering protection and support to people fleeing from Ukraine.
However, despite the progress achieved by the country by for example establishing a public Victim Support Service, some issues give rise to concern for the ECRI.
Most importantly, the commission slams the Hungarian government for using legislative changes that encourage hate speech.
“The Hungarian public discourse has become increasingly xenophobic in recent years, and political speech has taken on highly divisive and antagonistic overtones particularly targeting refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, Muslims and LGBTQ+ persons” – the ERCI states in the report.
“Several legislative changes channeled through government-supported campaigns have created a forum for the rise of such hate speech. These trends seem to have generated sentiments of marginalisation and exclusion among several parts of the population within the Hungarian society.”
The commission is also concerned that “the effectiveness of the legal framework on hate speech falling within criminal law remains extremely limited”. They also lament that the legislation continues to lack provisions on racist motivation, as an aggravating circumstance.
The report establishes that in Hungary, “due to increasingly hostile political discourse and the adoption of a series of restrictive laws”, the human rights of LGBTQ+ persons have significantly deteriorated.
These suppressive laws were fast-tracked after the Hungarian government announced “state of danger” due to the pandemic. This means that they were accepted without “any meaningful public consultations”.
Overall, the ERCI report establishes that “these trends seem to have generated sentiments of marginalisation and exclusion among several parts of the population within the Hungarian society”.
The full report, which gives 16 recommendations for the next 5 years for the Hungarian government, can be found here.
Blah blah blah blah. Mind your own business, Euros. To these people, ALL mooching off the taxpayer’s teet while contributing absolutely nothing of value, “hate speech” is anything that is not a dutiful regurgitation of the far-left globalist-socialist creed. Best to just ignore them and their noise, as we do empty vessels.
Hate speech is defined by anything they say it is. The EU is guilty of stupid. The US goverment decided they need to control all internet speech. We are talking Facebook – Twitter- google and others along with 90% of the media that controls the western world. Elon musk has put a kink in the plans. The main funder of these clowns is Soros and his NGOs with clever names of how noble they are. Imajine the main funder of the Biden regime is Soros- this in a country of thousand of billionares and thousands of very rich organizations.
They have the power to bring crazy to the EU and all of Europe the way it sucks up Facebook that is bigger Europe than the US, but than it does have more than double the population.
The same old Woke bullshit These people are funded by CIA and Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. Soros is the most dangerous man in the world!
Eljen az Orbán!
