Viktor Orban gets standing ovation at CPAC for defending family values and the institution of marriage
By Arsenio Toledo // Aug 07, 2022

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) received a standing ovation after he defined marriage as "the union of one man and one woman," his defense of the nuclear family and traditional family values.


The prime minister's talk, entitled "How We Fight," touched on multiple topics, including mass migration, the fall of communism and the institution of marriage. Of the latter topic, Orban said that Hungary "shall protect the institution of marriage."

"Family ties shall be based on marriage or the relationship between parent and child," he said. "To sum up, the mother is a woman, the father is a man and leave our kids alone. Full stop. End of discussion." Following this remark, cameras at CPAC showed members of the crowd giving the prime minister a standing ovation.

Hungary recognizes same-sex unions, with registered same-sex partnerships being entitled to certain rights, including inheritance and property rights. But the country's constitution, enacted by Orban's government, specifically restricts marriage to opposite-sex couples.

Speaking about how conservatives in Hungary are fighting social issues, he said: "Politics, my friends, is not enough. This war is a culture war. We have to revitalize our churches, our families, our universities and our community institutions." (Related: Orban warns West is subjecting itself to "suicide waves" of decline.)

Orban's government recently enacted a law banning the promotion of content in schools the government believes to be promoting homosexuality and LGBTQ+ ideology.

Describing how his party, Fidesz, has achieved great levels of political success all while maintaining a two-thirds supermajority in the Hungarian parliament, Orban said that one of the main factors is his ruling coalition's devotion "to law and order without compromise."

He humorously added that his government "decided we don't need more genders, we need more rangers… Less drag queens and more Chuck Norris."

Orban calls for Christians and conservatives in Europe and America to unite

Speaking about the controversy generated by his appearance at CPAC, Orban said that Democrats, progressives and liberals did everything in their power to prevent him from delivering his address.

"We are not the favorites of the American Democrats. They did not want me to be here and they made every effort to drive a wedge between us. They hate me and slander me and my country as they hate you and slander you and [the] America you stand for," said Orban.

"We all know how this works," he continued. "Progressive liberals didn't want me to be here because they knew what I would tell you – because I'm here to tell you that we should unite our forces because we Hungarians know how to defeat the enemies of freedom on the political battlefield."

Orban's speech touched on a variety of other topics, including how the United States – specifically, former President Ronald Reagan – helped Hungary defeat communism, how Hungary was the first country in Europe to "stop the invasion of illegal immigrants" and how his government has reduced the number of abortions.

"In the last 10 years the number of marriages has doubled and the number of abortions has halved in Hungary," he said. "It's not a bad start."

Orban's appearance at CPAC was immediately criticized, with many accusing the popular and democratically-elected prime minister of being an authoritarian and a dictator.

Despite the massive amounts of criticism from Western media and politicians, Orban is still largely focused on policies that he believes will make Hungary a better place to live. These policies include keeping immigration into the small country limited, banning same-sex couples from legally adopting children and passing a law that prevents people from being legally allowed to change genders on official documents.
