Top Orbán confidante revealed as convicted “hooligan” as mayor assaulted by disgruntled voter

habony

Árpád Habony, perhaps Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s closest confidante, was placed on two years probation by the Capital Court on May 4, 2011 for hooliganism, the liberal weekly Magyar Narancs reports.

Habony was convicted for knocking a man down and kicking his wife in the stomach on a side street parallel to Buda’s Szilágyi Erzsébet fasor in November, 2006.

Communications expert Habony, 45, was introduced to the Fidesz party leadership by Tamás Deutsch in the summer of 2002, Népszava reports.

He gained an important position in Fidesz after the 2002 election defeat when Orbán broke with András Wermer, who had been in charge of party communications.

From 2005 to 2008 Habony was a chief executive and co-owner of Eurooptimus Consultancy, the predecessor to the Néz pont Institute.

Disgruntled miner hits mayor

A miner struck Fidesz mayor József Polics during a meeting in the latter’s office in Komló, south Hungary Wednesday evening after a discussion on miners’ grievances.

Nearly 50 miners appeared at the mayor’s office to express discontent over government cutbacks in disability allowances.

Polics continued the meeting after he was struck but wondered aloud for the safety of his wife and children, as somebody had damaged his car.

Police questioned the miner and will begin criminal proceedings against him. Polics said he is still considering whether to file a complaint.

    What a “good” man (My Wife’s former Teacher!), yet another miserable Hungarian “Hero”, he’s not completely worthless only by the fact you can make his skin into lampshades like the Nazi’s did with the even more miserable Jews.

        Careful, or Fidesz’s courts will have you prosecuted for Holocaust denial. ;)

        • Leto مؤدّب

          Then I’ll make a living from this like so many in Hungary (and elsewhere). :)

          • Vegard Magnus Vindheim

            Hungary a Dying Country, Magyar Language, going the same way as Latin, dead, at least Normafa outside of Budapest is quite nice (the animals there being more civil than most “humans” in Budapest) every cloud, so they say…

          • Leto مؤدّب

            Don’t you worry about the Magyar language. Somebody of much bigger calibre than you was very wrong about our wonderful language: :)

            “Da sind sie jetzt unter Slawen, Deutschen, Wlachen, und andern Völkern der geringere Teil des Landeseinwohner, und nach Jahrhunderten wird man vielleicht ihre Sprache kaum finden” (Johann Gottfried Herder)

            So why are you here,help this country if you care instead of insults.
            PS ERIK-do not ban him,he is obviously an hasbara troll,let him play :).

        • Ricsi

          There where NO jew skin lampshades,even the ‘holocaust’ institute admits this now.So no denial here. :) (just for aloof,)

          As for this miner,yet another socialist/ex-commie loser,I am absolutely not Fidesz but this pathetic assault is proof of how uncivilised Komló is becoming with its huge Gypsy minority and disgruntled miners.And yes before you ask,I know this town very well,having friends who live/lived here.

          • Vegard Magnus Vindheim

            Cigány’s, Lovely, Just like the Negroes proliferating into other European Cultures, Gypsies=Human Hep C infected Vomit.

            FYI enjoy this one quickly ’cause it’s probably gonna be deleted.

          • Leto مؤدّب

            So do you really want to prove that “freedom of speech has ceased in Hungary”? What if he’d complain at the “Fidesz Media Council” you were afraid of? ;)

            Seriously, I think you should delete this kind of comments with no ado.

          • Aloof

            Not quite lightning speed there Erik… well you did say probably.

          • Ricsi

            No,just rather primitive,unable to integrate mostly and thus easily exploited by socialists and liberals.
            True they have a very high crime rate but this is also deliberate,ask Mohácsi Viktoria in Canada about Gyurcsany and Mossad and the killings of gypsies .

          • Aloof

            Where the fuck you been asshole, General Lucius Clay, Commander in Chief of U.S. forces in Europe and Military Governor of the U.S. Occupation Zone of Germany, 1947-49, repudiated this particular horror story as early as 1948.
            I don’t give a shit if the mayor was the King of Spades, you don’t mess with a miner.

          • Ricsi

            Glad you know that fact,soon many more ‘holocaust’ facts will be available for you-they already are but we are BANNED from discussing the sources,however the truth will come out very soon for you in the USofIsrahell.

          • Aloof

            We already know all the facts dipshit and it’s fine if Re-Horthy revisionist retards like Jobbos and Fidesz wants to re-write history.
            Not the first time in history it’s been done. Usually the victors get write history and because Hungarians are historical cowards naturally their first impulse is denial which is an absolute undeniable trait of Hungarians.
            Once you assholes set Hungary back another 30 years someday a real true Hungarian leader will emerge who will take Hungary forward, not backwards like you assholes.

        • Vegard Magnus Vindheim

          Well, Fuck FIDESZ, and fuck the “Father of the Hungarian People” Orbán and his little kingdom of Orbanistan.

      • Vegard Magnus Vindheim

        Sorry, couldn’t think of another Analogy (even if it’s a Snopes worthy piece), he would make a lovely shade though, that Dirty Brown Cigány skin, and the Jews would have had some use in the world other than the Thieves they really are.

        • Leto مؤدّب

          Oh, a racist troll..

          • Vidra

            Either that or someone getting his paycheck from the object of your great political frustration, hatred and anger

          • Leto مؤدّب

            This wasn’t a very original post, postcommie bastard. :)

          • Ricsi

            Seen as even idiot aloof admits there were no lamp shade skins,this guy is clearly a hasbara troll out to cause trouble with an hidden agenda. IGNORE HIM

          • Aloof

            I didn’t admit anything great Jobbo debater, I set you straight like I have to every time you say anything. If you actually knew ANYTHING you would have already known that fact.

          • Wenders

            a racist troll….we know you are….you do not have to introduce yourself…..the point is that you comment

          • Leto مؤدّب

            What is the point, asshole?

  • Aloof

    I mean in today’s Hungary who in the hell is surprised by any of this? Country is going down the shitter… fast.

  • Leto مؤدّب

    Hey, rotten postcommie bastards!
    If Hungary is a dictatorship and Prime Minister Viktor is a dictator, what you all love to howl about, then how is that possible that the dictator’s “closest confidante” was convicted by a court in “Orbanistan”? :)

    • Aloof

      Because the incident happened in 2006 in front of a lot of witnesses and before the fat drugged pig came to current power shithead. Kicking a woman in the stomach didn’t exactly go over well with Orban either which made Habony a political liability in the run up to the 2010 elections.

      • Leto مؤدّب

        Come on, you hamburger guzzling cockroach…. How come a real dictator cannot or will not save his “closest confidante” from being convicted? He’d only need to snap his fingers to do that, n’est-ce pas? ;)

        • Aloof

          LMAO! Orbans’s “closest confidantes” are a dime a dozen. They last as long as he needs them and then tosses them in the trash. Dictator? Naw… he doesn’t have the right stuff for that. Lukashenko, now there’s a real dictator. He’d shoot his mother in the head if she dared defy him.

          • Leto مؤدّب

            Dictators who cannot or will not save their “closest confidantes” never last for long, you hamburger guzzling cockroach. On the other hand, in sharp contrast with your predictions (aka your wet dreams) dictator Viktor Orbán has been being seated fairly firmly in his prime ministerial chair, n’est-ce pas? ;)

          • Aloof

            What part of “Dictator? Naw… he doesn’t have the right stuff for that.” didn’t you understand asshole?

            Orban is a chronic lying self medicated unsophisticated greedy country bumpkin arrogant buffoon who leads a gang of corrupt University buddies who constitute his circle of “confidantes.” He’s still the dictator of THAT group and everyone knows it including you.
            Fidesz, Orban and you are the furthest things away from Hungary needs. 88% of the country thinks the country is going in the wrong direction asshole whether the pig gets re-elected or not.

          • Leto مؤدّب

            In fact (left-leaning!) Median has just published their latest poll on this:
            They measured the highest figure (30%) for those who think “the Orbán government is doing a fine job” in the last 1.5 years.
            Also, Mr. Orbán has become the second most popular politician (after President Áder).

          • Aloof

            There is NOBODY disputing that Fidesz is going to win the election. We’re DISPUTING that is NOT a good thing for Hungary. There is no possible way that the fascist policies and ideology that Fidesz is IMPOSING upon Hungarians are going to work or last. They never do…

          • Leto مؤدّب

            “the fascist policies and ideology that Fidesz is IMPOSING upon Hungarians”
            :D :D :D

            Hilarious indeed.

            “the fascist policies and ideology that Fidesz is IMPOSING upon Hungarians”
            Hilarious indeed.
            Naaw….Disgusting and true.
            No…Aloof said it very well…..and he is not my ” ilk!”

          • Leto مؤدّب

            The hamburger guzzling cockroach has just reaffirmed his allegiance to your jackal pack, Dutch moron.

          • szebbjovot

            There is no fascism in Hungary you fool, otherwise we would be doing a lot better.

          • Aloof

            LMFAO! You’re so stupid that you and Leto the weasel don’t who you are?

            “We have created our myth. The myth is a faith, it is passion. It is not necessary that it shall be a reality. It is a reality by the fact that it is a good, a hope, a faith, that it is courage. Our myth is the Nation, our myth is the greatness of the Nation! And to this myth, to this grandeur, that we wish to translate into a complete reality, we subordinate all the rest.”

      “If Hungary is a dictatorship and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán
      is a dictator”
      It is not IF any more. It is a proven fact.

      http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/03/01/guest-post-constitutional-revenge/

      This professional analysis by Scheppele will wake up the EU.

      “The world has relaxed because the Hungarian government appeared to
      modify some of the most offending reforms after pressure from the European Union”.
      Now: “The mega-amendment also restores policies that the Court previously
      invalidated or that Hungary told Europe it had changed.

      The lack of judicial independence had been criticized by European bodies and the Hungarian government had appeared to back down. Now we see
      compromise was temporary and the bulked-up powers of the head of the
      National Judicial Office are being added to the constitution without
      the limitations that had reassured Europe.

      The amendment reverses virtually all of the concessions that the
      government has been forced to make over the last year, and it
      provides further evidence that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán
      recognizes no limits on his power.

      When Europe tells him no and when his country’s own Constitutional Court hands him defeats, he waits until Hungary is out of the spotlight, and then he adjusts the constitution to make all those unpleasant restrictions go away”.

      “He waits until Hungary is out of the spotlight”

      So now (this regime) Hungary will be back in the spotlight very much, it will no longer be regarded as being part of the EU ideals. It will mean a huge backlash on his regime and there will be consequences.
      Hard to imagine that the EU leadership will not wake up and recognise the disgusting strategy of a wannabe dictator!

      • Leto مؤدّب

        Okay, you pathetic Dutch moron, so Hungary is a dictatorship and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is a dictator.* This must be so since your rotten lot, like this Scheppele, writes garbage like this… :D

        All right but please do try to explain at least why and how a dictator’s “closest confidante” gets convicted by a court in his own dictatorship? ;) Dictators never allow such a thing to happen even if they toss their “closest confidante” aside…

        *He’s a fine one though. He is the second most popular politician
        with the Hungarian electorate and chances are his party will be
        reelected with a convincing majority next year in free and fair elections.

        • Paul

          http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/03/01/guest-post-constitutional-revenge/

          Well, the (quote Leto) “garbage” is published in the NY Times. The
          international press, the EU, the US, Human Rights Watch etc. will
          take it into consideration that a certain tiny bug called Leto thinks
          the article is actually “garbage”!

        • Paul

          All right but please do try to explain at least why and how a dictator’s “closest confidante” gets convicted by a court in his own dictatorship?…no need…Aloof already did.

          • Leto مؤدّب

            Does the hamburger guzzling cockroach speak for you, Dutch moron? Okay, I know you’re Interchangeable parts.

            Anyway, he didn’t explain it, of course.
