PM Orbán’s CPAC address

August 6th, 2022

In their first snap analyses, a conservative lawyer and a liberal pundit agree that PM Orbán’s keynote address went down well with the Dallas CPAC audience.

In an interview with Magyar Hírlap, conservative constitutional lawyer Zoltán Lomnici Jr writes that the CPAC audience welcomed PM Orbán’s speech, especially his call for the defense of Judaeo-Christian civilization and for measures to stop illegal migration. Lomnici notes that the invitation extended to PM Orbán to give the keynote speech is a huge recognition of his politics by conservative republicans who share the same values as the Hungarian Prime Minister.

Heti Világgazdaság’s Iván László Nagy also thinks that PM Orbán’s messages resonated well with the CPAC audience. The left-liberal commentator believes that the main themes – lambasting progressive liberalism and George Soros, advocating national sovereignty, the defense of Christian conservative values and advocating family subsidies – sat well with the what he calls the ‘far-right’ wing of the Republican Party. Nagy adds that what he sees as PM Orbán’s ‘rude humour’ also pleased his listeners.
