‘Partly Free’ - Freedom House downgrades Hungary

According to “Freedom in the World 2019,” the latest annual survey issued by U.S.-based, government-funded watchdog Freedom House, Hungary is now only a “Partly Free” country, with worsening scores for political rights and civil liberties, becoming the first country in the EU that is not currently classified as “Free.”

In the reportʼs summary, Freedom House criticizes the unevenness of the Hungarian political playing field, saying that the 2018 election campaign, in which the governing Fidesz regained its two-thirds majority, was characterized by harsh anti-migrant rhetoric and characterizations of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán as a defender of “traditional” Christian values in Europe.

Freedom House is good as far as "ball park" figures, you know North Korea is very bad or Turkey and Russia are bad.... while "partly free" might not be that bad. That's what Ukraine is too.

Manure, Hungary is very free...... for Hungarians, this claptrap partly free baloney is because they won't allow Hungary to be islamicized again! They are one of a number of countries that have a very good memory of their history. Hungary is also proof that walls work and they are a good example of how we should deal with our borders and would be invaders.

Right on, GTHawk.
Hungary is [at least] one nation in Europe that intends to stay white/Christian/European.

I don't know how color oriented they are, but they are most definitely Christian oriented and have no desire to fight the muslims on their own soil again.

And for their desire to keep unwanted outsiders, outside...they will be called "nationalists," white supremacists, racists, and worse.

The irony is, that Hungary was the first country that tore down the Iron Curtain.

I just don't see the Irony, one fence was built a repressive invader to keep people in while Hungary's fence was built by a free people to keep repressive invaders out.
