We count on all Hungarians who care about the future of Hungary – which is why Prime Minister Viktor Orbán spoke in his solemn speech on the 65th anniversary of the 1956 Revolution and War of Independence in Budapest on Saturday; the prime minister also commemorated the events of 23 October 2006, stressing that fifteen years ago stood on one side the tear gas grenade and on the other “the deceived and humiliated nation”.
The head of the Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út and Andrássy út, decorated with national flags, gave a speech after the arrival of the Civil Co-operation Forum (CÖF) – Civil Co-operation Public Benefit Foundation (CÖKA).
Remembering the days of 65 years ago and the afternoon of fifteen years ago, Viktor Orbán began his speech by saying: “this is an unusual place; fifteen years ago, in these minutes, here at the corner of Andrássy and Bajcsy-Zsilinszky streets, he looked each other in the past and present ”. He said: Fifteen years ago, “the young communists made October 23 November 4”.
Viktor Orbán stated that today “we remember the day when we did not ask ourselves whether God is with us, but whether we are with God. A great force moved into us, and the pillars of communist rule trembled. ” We remember the moment when “the Hungarian nation found in the blink of an eye, and the Hungarian name became beautiful again, worthy of its great old reputation,” he added.
The prime minister said we had created a million new jobs, “kicked off foreign currency loans”, cut taxes, and got to the point where next year the minimum wage would be higher than the average wage under the Socialists. We have reclaimed utilities and doubled our national wealth, taxed multis, protected families, and cut back on overhead costs to the lowest in Europe, he listed.
Viktor Orbán said: Hungary is now strong enough to appreciate the elderly and the young at the same time. We are rebuilding the 13-month pension, there will be no tax to be paid to young people living from work next year, and families raising children will get their taxes paid back this year, the prime minister said.
According to his assessment, we now have “our own Hungarian world and Hungarian life” and we also have a constitution that ensures that they can never do what they did to us in ’56 and 2006 again. He added that they had crossed the borders separating the nations and reunited the Hungarians. It took many millions of united wills and diligent hands, he continued, but, he added, it didn’t hurt to have a “healthy and capable” government.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán also speaks in front of the celebrators who completely filled Elizabeth Square and Deák Square, as well as on Károly Boulevard all the way to Astoria: it must not be forgotten that et, the whole of the European Union attacked Hungary, and they did so when the government stopped the migrants, built the fence and defended the borders.
Viktor Orbán – to whose speech those present repeatedly responded with applause and greetings – also stated that the invitation was for liberation from the Soviet occupation and not for interfering in Hungarian democracy. He only stated that the fate of the Hungarians will be decided by the Hungarians even now, and the truth is on the side of the freedom fighters.
He explained: October 23 reminds us not to forget our own personal responsibility. “1100 years have burned into our DNA” that here in the Carpathian Basin we have to fight for freedom every day, again and again, “he added.” He added: our unit.
He stressed that in unity is strength, “we are together because we believe in the same”. In the family, in the nation, “we all believe in a strong and independent Hungary,” he added. He stressed that whoever defends his family, the nation against alien attacks, can count not only on his mind, heart and strength, but also that he is right. The truth was on the side of the freedom fighters then and today, he said.
He stated: “if we want to protect the safety of our families, the borders of our country, the future of our children, the fruits of our labor, our pensions, our salaries, our overhead reductions, if we want to preserve our culture, customs, language, or freedom of everyday life. , then everyone must play their part in the struggle that awaits us ”.
We count on all Hungarians who care about Hungary’s future, he said, saying: “Hungary is our first priority, so those who do not vote will do better with our governance”.
The then prime minister asked the people celebrating: look at those standing next to them because they could see that they could count on it. “He will do everything we can to get through even the thickest wall. This is our strength, this is our hinterland, and there are not so many dollars or so many euros in the world that could take this away from us, ”he said.
“We have come, we have seen and we will win again. The Good God is above all of us, Hungary above all! Come on, Hungary, come on, Hungarians! ” – Viktor Orbán closed his solemn speech.
