Socialists hold congress, picks nominee for state president

Hungary’s Socialist opposition held a congress on Sunday and announced the party’s choice of president of the republic.

The current president’s term expires in August. The Fidesz centre-right government, with a two-thirds parliamentary majority, will have the final say about who replaces Laszlo Solyom.

Ildiko Lendvai, the outgoing Socialist leader, said that the party’s candidate, Andras Balogh, 66, a university lecturer, member of the Academy of Sciences and former head of the Foreign Affairs Institute, would be a fine embodiment of the spirit of the democratic republic and not just a figurehead.

She insisted that the Socialist party is the second biggest parliamentary force and therefore had enough power and the right to nominate a presidential candidate. Lendvai added that now the government party has overwhelming power, it is especially important that there should be a head of state who does not give up the independence of his office in deference to a single party.

The Socialist party is to hold its next congress in July, when it will elect new leaders. Attila Mesterhazy, the current parliamentary group leader and list-leader in the April general election, is strongly tipped to be voted in as the next party leader.

    Ashkenazi Jew, Karl Marx (a Crypto-Jew, real name Moses Mordecai Levy), publishes, “The Communist Manifesto.” Interestingly at the same time as he is working on this, Karl Ritter of Frankfurt University is writing the antithesis which goes on to form the basis for Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche’s, “Nietzscheanism.” This, “Nietzscheanism,” is later developed into Fascism and Nazism and will be used to foment the first and second world wars.
    Marx, Ritter, and Nietzsche are all funded and under the instruction of the Rothschilds’. The idea behind this scheme is that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in so-called ideologies to enable them to divide larger and larger factions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other, and particularly, in destroying all political and religious institutions. This is essentially the same plan put forward by Weishaupt in 1776.
    Interestingly, Marxism, Communism and its derivative, Socialism, when seen years later in practice, are nothing but state-capitalism and rule by a privileged minority, exercising despotic and total control over a majority which is left with virtually no property or legal rights.

    This explains why the Rothschilds’ were so interested in funding these ideologies, which would subsequently develop into, “democracy,” a system of the two party state in which both parties are controlled by the same force, and whilst they may squabble over insignificant issues, to give the impression of opposing one another, they actually follow the same basic ideology, which is why the inhabitants of democracies soon discover that it doesn’t matter who they vote for, nothing ever changes.

    Medication time Mr. Aussie Mentally Disabled!
    Dont you people see that its these kind of hatred and lies from Law that make Jews fear extinction (not to mention WWII)? You wonder why Jews are paraniod, you have literally billions of people making up stupid shit thats not true.
    Yes Israel royally fucked up the ship interditcion. Yes they should probably change the way they search imports for arms.
    So now you have Law feeling justified to make up any old shit. And poeple DIE cause of this shit over and over. You people need to stop the hate cause one day itll be us Hungarians that the Slovaks start making shit up about and once the lies start, you cant stop them. Like this website.

  • Common Sense

    I didn’t say Israel deserves to be wiped out.
    I simply agree with it.

  • Dob utca

    Law doen’t make up anything, he cuts and pastes from other sources. It’s doubtful he actually grasps what he is posting. Law claims to be a Hungarian, but most Magyars can speak and write Hungarian, Law can’t (Vesprem?) He lives in Hungary on Australian mental disability handouts – he admitted as much a few years ago in one of his posts as “HotPaprika.” He’s be pitiful if he weren’t attemting to be such an internet racist bully. As for Common Senseless, he’s just fat old Stan The Quick Opinion Man living out his twilight years diddling himself. Not worth telling them to get a life: these English language forums are their lives.

    Law/Lacikam: “Holy water” is usually written as two words.

  • Dob utca

    Law/Laci/Holyboy: “journalists” is plural, “his” denotes a single person. Try writing a simple grammatically correct sentence for a change. Even Australians can do it!

    Dob Utca–Before teaching Law,try to write yourself:
    “He’s be pitiful” ? “attemting..” ?
    See my point,everyone thinks they are an expert. 🙂

    Today Law posts as Frank Soskice? All of his cut and
    paste rantings are coming from some web site in
    bizarro world today. Seems that Csikos Laci doesn’t
    like journalists much. Neither does his little
    Muttboy in Belgium.

    “Socialists hold congress, picks nominee for state president”
    This was the topic up for discussion?
    I don’t understand the coded messages that are passing between you all on this thread but I find them highly amusing on the basis that the hatred
    and malice is second to none.
    I want to have my two cents worth which is slightly off-topic as well…Lendvai is not a good advertisement for botox treatment. If you woke up next to her you would need a blood transfusion, an oxygen mask, and a shotgun to kill the beast before it had further opportunity to sink its false teeth into your already much-punctured neck.

  • DoubleH63

    That is funnier than hell! Thanks, you made my day. Better keep the garlic ring around your neck when moving in Socialist circles.

  • I think the term ‘Socialists’ is misapplied to the group commonly referred to. Now before you misunderstand what I’m saying and think that I’m defending them, I’m not. In fact, quite the opposite. To me, ‘socialist’ SHOULD refer to a group of people who’s primary interest is a focus on building and improving society. In that sense, the people we call ‘socialists’ would be more accurately described as ‘anti-socialists’, ‘pseudo-nihilists’, ‘social atavists’, ‘spendthrifts’ ‘debt-dummies’ or just ‘fucking idiots’.

  • DoubleH63

    Looks like that Lendvai elvtársnő (failed botox treatment patient) after losing her job as Socialist leader; already landed a new one. Here at Politics.hu. as a censor. She is very qualified because of her past job history.
    It was hard enough to understand many comments before already; but now that there are answers to posts that are invisible it’s going to be really confusing to follow a discussion.
    Not long ago I just read a post by Victor Ostrovsky (ex-case officer of Mossad – thanks for stopping by) in this thread and now it’s gone. It is apparently not the first post to meet the same fate.

  • @DoubleH63: It wasn’t Lendvai who erased those – I
    did. I’m not going to zap comments just because they
    are hateful and stupid, but I draw the line at
    hateful, stupid and totally off-topic.

  • DoubleH63

    Ok Erik, but I still preferred when you left comments untouched no matter how hateful, stupid or off-topic they were.
    In my opinion the only posts that are should be deleted are the ones made by spammers advertising cheap loans, Viagra or whatever.

  • @DH63: That’s the point – beyond a certain level of
    random stupid hatefulness, I just consider this crap
    to be spam along with the penis creams and cheap
    loans. Though worse, because penis spam doesn’t make
    a whole country (Hungary) look pathetic.

  • NagyEmber

    Actually, the term ‘Socialist’ refers to a specific political philosophy; whether it leads to the improvement of society is debatable (my view is that empirical data suggests otherwise). Much like the term ‘Progressive’ that is (re)gaining popularity in the USA at the moment. One supposes that the people who employ these terms are banking on the fact that people will view the political party on the basis of the root word of their descriptor (ie. ‘Social’ or ‘Progress’) and not pay too much attention to the actual content of the policies they advocate. Although I do agree with your general observation that the Hungarian ‘Socialist’ Party doesn’t seem to have any particular philosophy, leastwise one that can be recognized as socialist. They generally seem to be corrupt and incompetant…a pretty hard combination to find. I have lived in the USA under Democrat and Republican presidents and Congresses, in Ireland under Fianna Fail and Fine Gael, Britain under Tories and Labour, but I have never seen a more useless bunch of twits than the MSzP. It remains to be seen whether FIDESZ can do better, but I find it difficult to imagine they can do worse, even if they try.

  • NagyEmber: I’m glad you got the message…and that was what I was going for; using a bit of creative licence to achieve the aim.

    Much like idealised capitalism, I tend to think that socialism is one of those ideals that has never been effectively instituted anywhere. The best situation seems to be a relatively stable, regular swinging electorate that alternates votes between left and right depending on the changing needs of the country at the time.I think it takes time and ongoing peace to develop that routine though…something Hungary has had neither of.

    @ Cinaed and Nagy Ember
    Re: “…but I have never seen a more useless bunch of twits than the MSzP.”
    What has never been made clear on this website is whether the problem was the MSZP’s political platform or the crooks running the show
    The word “Socialist” has different meanings.
    Had it not been run by the Mafia, was it supposed to some way resemble the Canadian Liberals or the American Democrats?

  • I didn’t say Israel deserves to be wiped out.
    I simply agree with it.

    Nazi Israel needs to be destroyed, not as a country and not its people but the leaders and supporters of one of the world’s racist, violent, aggressive, genocidal, war criminal state Israel became. There is no hope for Middle-East peace as long as Nazi Israel and its supporters run the show.
    There are decent Jews today just as there were decent Germans in Hitler’s time and they are constantly harassed and demonized by the Zionazi scum.

  • judas

    LHVJ , actually what does this stand for?
    Your are confusing me with your statements.
    So what you suggest:
    1)You agree Israel should be wiped out?
    2)Only wipe out the Leadership?
    3)Only wipe?
