V4 Report: Bulgaria and Slovakia: A wave of opposition in Central Europe to “gender ideology” and other radical beliefs has led Bulgaria and Slovakia to oppose ratifying the Istanbul Convention.

More nation states must start defying the “group think” mentality of the so-called “international community”. Who are the “progressive” groups behind these “conventions”? The same crowd pushing multicult and open-borders?

** As of November 2017, just over half of the members of the Council of Europe have ratified the so-called “human rights” watchdog’s 2011 Istanbul Convention. It has been ratified by Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

We are quite stunned that Poland ratified this treaty, but we do not know the details or circumstances behind their decision. We hope others will continue to oppose this reckless attempt to wage war on gender, natural law and human nature.

– The Convention is the first international treaty containing a definition of “gender” as “social roles, behaviours, activities and characteristics that a particular society considers appropriate for women and men” – according to Art. 3 of the Convention. Detractors claim that this opens the door to legalising gay marriage and promoting homosexuality in school by promoters of “gender ideology”.

Slovakia and others in Central Europe do not need some bizarre international treaty containing a definition of “gender”. This attempt by the globalists to redefine “gender” is both nauseating and deranged. One cannot defeat “Mother Nature”.

The V4 Report sees absolutely no need to ratify these international manifestos that often mix-in cultural Marxism with other common sense measures that can be dealt with better by the governments of nation states.

As we posted a few days ago, instead of ratifying the Istanbul Convention as a whole, PM Robert Fico proposed to introduce national laws that would increase the protection of women from domestic violence.

“Any violence against women is unacceptable and has no place in our society,” Fico said as quoted by the Sme daily, and added that the protection of women’s rights is particularly important at a time when migrants make up more and more of the European population and bring with them “cultural and social patterns from their countries of origin”, including the perception of a woman as a submissive human being.

“I am against the emergence of compact Muslim communities in Slovakia on principle,” Fico said as quoted by Sme. “So that these communities are not able to preserve the habits that Europe and its Christian historical roots refute as wrong and unjust.”

The developments highlight widespread resistance among the more socially conservative countries of Central Europe to the “progressive values” of Western Europe. One can see very plainly why Slovakia would resist the West’s attempts to push this type of culture on their people.

Fico said he refused to ratify the Istanbul Convention because he considers it at odds with the country’s constitutional definition of marriage as a heterosexual union.

The convention talks about stereotypes and gender equality in the sense of eliminating the so-called traditional roles of men and women in the family. “It raises doubts,” Fico told reporters.

“Unless there is full compliance with the provisions of the convention with the definition of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman, I will never agree to ratify,” added Fico.

Slovakia’s parliament amended its Constitution in 2014 to define marriage as a union between man and woman.

Last week Bulgarian PM Boyko Borissov withdrew from parliament a motion to ratify the Istanbul Convention, faced with ever-growing opposition, first from its coalition partner, the United Patriots, the opposition socialists, and more broadly, with the population.

V4 Report

Radical EU federalists (Verhofstadt at the ALDE Group) and Green Marxists are now attacking Hungary 🇭🇺 and its people over their free decision to elect Viktor Orban.

Slovakia’s 🇸🇰 new PM stands up to defend Hungary and Visegrad. He is new but off to a strong start.

It’s time for Andrej Babis of the Czech Republic 🇨🇿 to repudiate Guy Verhofstadt and the multicult extremists at ALDE by terminating his association with this extremist group, which has very little in common with the beliefs of the Czech people.* Slovakia 🇸🇰: “Respect the results''. New Slovakian PM Peter Pellegrini defends Visegrad and blasts EU extremists, who are calling for sanctions on Hungary 🇭🇺 after Viktor Orbán’s convincing victory.

** The EU Parliament has turned into a kindergarten playground, full of juvenile brats screaming for attention. They neither respect the Hungarian people, nor do they speak for the mainstream of Europe. Does one need any more evidence of the Open Society’s influence over Brussels?

- Peter Pellegrini called out the European Union after it was suggested the bloc impose voting sanctions on Hungary following the victory of eurosceptic Viktor Orbàn.

Mr Pellegrini told Bloomberg: "I think Hungary is our neighbouring country and I have to say we should not comment on what is going on there because we speak a lot in Brussels about the rule of law.”

"We need to respect democracy and everything. In Hungary there were democratic elections and it is the decision of the Hungarian people and we have to respect the results."

- Last week a draft report from the European Parliament suggested the institution could seek to impose sanctions on Hungary due to "systematic threats to democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights."

Judith Sargentini, the MEP charged with the report, said: "It is shocking how many warning have been given since 2010. The time for issuing warnings has passed. We need to stand up for the Hungarian people whose rights have been undermined by their government."

Miss Sargentini is a Dutch politician and member of the radical, far-left GreenParty of the EU Parliament. The Hungarian people are not looking for Green Party extremists like her to “stand up for them”. In fact, Hungarians elected Viktor Orban to defend their country from Cultural Marxists such as Sargentini, who not only fail to grasp reality but also suffer from delusions of grandeur.

The liberal media and EU Parliament are embarrassing themselves and pushing Central Europeans into a corner. Whining and crying about elections that do not produce the results one wishes for is one thing, but trying to punish a people and nation for electing the leaders they wish to represent them is small, unbecoming and reprehensible.

This is no longer something to be “brushed-off” as a disagreement. With this threat and the obnoxious tactics designed to intimidate independent nation states for not voting as the EU pleases, Brussels is declaring war on Hungary and Visegrad. Others in Central Europe cannot remain silent; they will be next.

Pellegrini may not be perfect, but, in our opinion, he is off to a strong start. He realizes the long-term consequences of this poison emanating from Brussels. We applaud his actions to defend his fellow Visegrad neighbor.

- At some point, Visegrad and others in CEE must realize that their culture and values are totally at odds with the ultra-left beliefs of Brussels, Berlin and the leaders of the Western EU bloc. While countries are free to disagree, it crosses the line when one party seeks to impose their beliefs on another party which rejects them.

A “Project” relegated to using force, blackmail and threats to desperately hold a union together will collapse. The future is not the EU, it is too big and its members are too divided. EU solidarity is dead and it’s time to move on.

The future will consist of smaller, less intrusive regional alliances that better reflect the beliefs, traditions and values of its people. It is no longer a question of if......but when.

Following the elections in Austria, Hungary and Italy, the EU has revealed its true colors: The Society of Brussels is not interested in solidarity; rather, they seek submission and domination.

The Battle for the Soul of Europe rages on.....right here and right now. Onward Visegrad! It’s time to take off the gloves.

holland állami rádió fiatal műsorvezetője javasolja, hogy a holland képviselő köpje le Orbán Viktort Úgy gondolom:hiába ahol a kannabusz legálisan használható irracionális szöveget is mondhat valaki és azt gondolja Ő az Európai Persze amikor az ősei még holland gyarmatosítok voltak a talpával rugdoshatta a gyarmatain lakókat- miközben a javaikat elszedve az anyaországot gazdagították Igy aztán a tudatban megmaradt bármely pártot is képvisel valaki Nekik (és igy persze az egész uniónak dolga és kötelessége a volt gyarmatokról a befogadás ) eszükbe sem jut, hogy áldozni kellene pénzt és tudást és helyben ott segíteni az emberi élet jobbításáért . Összefoglalva sem Ön tisztelt Ur sem a megszólított holland képviselő asszony nem tekinthető igazán európainak és demokratának sem- jobban hasonlít ez a vélemény és ez a gyakorlat a régi gyarmattartóira- csak most ide mint alattvalók közé besorolnák a közép-europaiakat is A szégyen az Öné
