About Orbán’s speech in Tusnádfürdő
How to talk about serious issues lightly?
First, listen to people who are smarter than you. Refere to their ideas which you can relate your own insights. Now, I did the same.
According to Attila Tibor Nagy, this year’s speech was not as strong in content and novelty as the previous ones on the illiberal state, “but it will be remembered for some time”. (via Index)
In the speech, which caused a stir, the phrase “mixing of races” was presumably confused with “mixing of nations”, but regardless, a prime minister is always responsible for the words he or says.
Tibor Attila Nagy said that after the atrocities of Nazism-Fascism, it was no wonder that the term “mixed race” had caused such an outcry.
But Viktor Orbán must have known even before delivering his speech that the term would cause a storm at home and abroad. The Prime Minister has lots of experience, so it is hard to imagine that there was a misunderstanding, “probably the Prime Minister himself intentionally wanted this element of his speech to be highlighted. He is not far from provocation” – the political scientist said.
Anyway, let’s see, who is talking about the rise in overheads now? Nobody. Everybody is talking about Orbán’s speech in Tusnádfürdő, which blew the fuse again.
