PHOTOS: Another Hungarian opposition party changes name
The opposition Párbeszéd will change its name to Párbeszéd-Greens and Benedek Jávor will head the party’s list at the European Parliamentary elections, its co-leaders said on Sunday announcing decisions made at a party congress on the previous day.
Bence Tordai said at an event dubbed “Go for 2024! – With Párbeszéd (Dialogue) for a Green Hungary” that green politics required the understanding of what sustainability meant and a realisation that there were problems with the basic logic, approach and operation of the current system.
Rebeka Szabó said green politics went beyond trying to improve environmental protection in the current regime but involved a critique of the regime. She said the party was not only critical of the “hybrid local regime built on stealing public monies” but it was also critical of a global capitalist regime that put profit above the people’s security and children’ future.
Tordai said a green Europe and green Hungary had to be built where green solutions are promoted and green principles are enforced on all levels of decision making, including locally, on national level and throughout the EU. Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony, addressing the event’s local municipality section, said that cities must play a leading role in slowing down climate change.
Párbeszéd is the third Hungarian opposition party that changed its name after the lost 2022 April general elections. LMP was the first one changing its name to LMP- Hungarian Green Party, Jobbik followed as Jobbik-Conservatives.
You know they say you can’t polish a turd. You can rename it but it’s still a steaming pile of dookie at the end of the proverbial day.
These folks want to jack up our taxes to pay for “green” initiatives (which are not actually green at all, when you do a bit of research). They want us to live in cold apartments. They want us to take cold showers. They want us to eat dried bugs. They want to make it prohibitively expensive to fly anywhere.
Go pound sand, “Greens.” Greenery is one of the biggest con-jobs even perpetrated on the human race.
