Geert Wilders Opines on New Hungarian Law on Homosexuality

 Hat tip Budapest Times and Ongehoord Nederland. Translation by Fousesquawk.

Hungary has recently passed legislation that increases penalties for pedophilia and bans the promotion of homosexuality in schools. The stated purpose is to protect children under 18. 

The new law, as well as Hungary’s president, Viktor Orban, are under sharp criticism from media, gay rights organizations, and the EU. Hungary defends itself by saying that homosexual rights are protected in Hungary, but that discussions of homosexuality should take place within the home and family when it comes to children under 18.

The below article is from the English-language Budapest Times.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is one of several leaders who have criticized Hungary’s legislation. In response,  conservative Dutch politician Geert Wilders was interviewed by the conservative Dutch outlet, Ongehoord Nederland. Wilders defends Hungary’s actions and states that, in his opinion, gays are safer in a Hungarian city than they are in a city like Amsterdam. Wilders attributes the lack of safety for gays in the Netherlands to the massive immigration of Muslims who tend to be hostile to homosexuals due to Islamic teachings about homosexuality.

The below video is translated by Fousesquawk.

Fousesquawk comment: I don’t pretend to know all the details on this legislation by Hungary, but if their explanation is true, I would agree with Wilders. He knows that gays are not safe in places like Amsterdam when they are subject to abuse from people on the street. And it is mostly the abuse from Muslim immigrants (not all but many) that represents the problem. In Budapest, for example, gays don’t have to worry about Muslim immigrants attacking them because Hungary has not opened its borders to Muslims as have Western European nations. As to the extent gays in Hungary may be harassed by Hungarians themselves, I don’t know.
I am glad that Wilders is concerned about the safety of gays in the Netherlands. Gays should not be discriminated against, harassed, or assaulted-period. Having said that, it is the gay activists who, in many cases and many places, have aroused opposition. For example, while gays and transgenders should be accepted and treated with compassion and fairness, it is the “celebration” of this particular lifestyle that is concerning many parents. Most decent people are perfectly ready to accept gays and ensure they are not discriminated against or even worse, harmed. What many object to, however, is the idea that schools would bring in transgendered people in extreme garb to present themselves to children. It is the promotion and celebration of homosexuality and transgenderism that parents do not want their children exposed to.
As far as I understand it, that seems to be what Hungary is addressing.
