Hungry Stands Against the Tide By Mrs Vera West
Hungry is standing up for Western civilisation against the globalist forces. Witness the latest act of resistance and wish that Australian politicians had one once of this raw guts:
“Hungary’s parliament has passed a declaration against signing the Istanbul Convention on preventing and combating violence against women because it smuggles in provisions declaring gender a “social construct” and allowing “gender-based asylum claims”. Dr Zoltán Kovács, Secretary of State for International Communication and Relations in Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s government, reported that the Hungarian legislature had passed its declaration against the seemingly unimpeachable Council of Europe convention in an official blog post. The protection of women and the fight against domestic violence have always been of central importance to the government,” he insisted, noting that Orbán had put domestic violence on a new footing in the criminal code in 2013, after the first of three consecutive election wins — but added that the Istanbul Convention, in his view, goes “far beyond this”. He noted, for example, that “the Convention defines ‘gender’ as ‘socially constructed roles, behaviours, activities and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for women and men'” — which puts it at odds with the Hungarian constitution, which defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Adopting the Istanbul Convention with its “social gender” definition would “void” the Hungarian constitutional position that there are “only two biological genders, male and female,” he explained.”
And just imagine this happening here:
“Hungary has revoked funding for gender studies after the government cited concerns about employment opportunities for graduates. Hungary’s government announced in August that it would no longer fund the Master’s programme which is taught at the biggest state-funded Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) and the Central European University (CEU), founded by George Soros. According to 444.hu, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán signed the degree on Friday, the document reading: “139/2015 is expired. (VI.9.) Government Decree No. 115. Line.” CEU published a statement on its website Tuesday, claiming there was “strong opposition” to the removal of the programme from the country’s list of accredited postgraduate courses. “This is a major infringement on academic freedom and university autonomy,” they said. “Gender Studies is an internationally recognized academic field, which produces socially relevant knowledge, and which has been taught at CEU for well over two decades. “Eliminating this program will be a significant loss to the Hungarian scholarly community and for democratically-minded public policy makers,” they added.”
On the contrary, much of the postmodernist brew needs to go, at least as publicly funded, as James Reed argues all the time at this site, and rightly, I now think.
