Obama's State Dept: Hungary should bail out Communist Party newspaper

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

To coincide with the 60th anniversary of the revolution against the tyrannical Soviet-communist regime in Hungary, the US State Department pushed the Hungarian government to prop up a failing communist newspaper, in the name of "media diversity." 

According to The New American:

The Obama administration is facing criticism and ridicule after a bizarre outburst by the John Kerry-led State Department urging Hungarian authorities to prop up a defunct Communist Party propaganda organ.

In an official statement, the Obama administration, which recently attacked media diversity in the United States, echoed discredited conspiracy theories pushed by communists and called on anti-communist Hungarian officials to prop up the bankrupt newspaper — supposedly to preserve “media pluralism.”

But the ownership of the far-left paper, known as Nepszabadsag, wants to shut it down, citing growing financial losses and plunging circulation figures.

Here is the actual State Department notice:









Similarly, the Obama administration clearly attempted to interfere with the Brexit vote, where the UK choose to leave the rapidly Sovietizing European Union. 

They also breached the law and protocol by attempting to influence the Israeli election.

The New American article continues:

The Obama administration also called on Hungarian authorities to “work closely” on “Freedom of the Media” with a bureaucrat from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a controversial United Nations partner organization founded and still partly controlled by brutal communist dictatorships that Obama invited to "monitor" U.S. elections.

When and why using public money to prop up communist propaganda organs or even non-totalitarian media outlets became associated with “freedom of the media” was not immediately clear either.    

The OSCE, as has been pointed out here at The Rebel many times, holds the opinion that truth can be "hate speech" and can be suppressed from the public:

The Obama administration uses various, sometimes contradictory arguments, but always with the same goal: to promote communist or left leaning cultures and governments.

There is not an overarching set of values in that strategy. There is however, an increasingly clear agenda.

Recently, Hungarian Prime Minister Orban and the President of Poland gave a speech to tens of thousands of cheering fans, about the hard won freedoms Hungary restored in 1956. The Americans had promised to support that uprising, and then reneged. Much like they did with the Marsh Arabs in the first Iraq war, and the deal they made with Ukraine to give up their nuclear arsenal

But the freedom loving Hungarians beat the Soviet communists out of Hungary, without that promised US support.

As a fellow traveler, I urge that our imperialistic governments fund the variety of people’s movements within them

I’m sure if it was the other way around the communist regimes would help prop up a Capitalist paper. NOT!

Diversity of view points is Saul Alinsky speak for less conservative and more leftist viewpoints. Not surprised that the ISIS funding Obama is shilling for a communist rag.

Bill Elder – I agree! I hope the people tar and feather that community fraudster. I keep thinking about him being a “community organizer,” and now after his destruction of America, and with his dirty hands in other democratic countries, with the goal to undermine them, I fully understand what that cryptic job title really means.

Hungary is one of the few ex-soviet basket cases that has buried communist civil degeneracy and re-evolved into a true democratic republic – that is obviously something chairman Obongo detests. Marxist reflex is unrestrainable.- he has devolved his own democratic republic into a 3rd world commie cesspool and now he wants to devolve other democracies.

If he ever shows his face in that country I hope the people who lost loved ones in the gulags spit at him.

Perhaps the U.S. State Department can call upon the UN to likewise ensure a “diversity of viewpoints and opinions” by calling for an overturning of the censorship of the Rebel’s participation at the upcoming Climate Change conference!

So I suppose we here in Canada should subsidize Socialist Worker…which is 1920s retro communist pamphleteering….just BTW….that Bains fellow in Justin’s crew….is he any relation to Hardial Bains the uber-communist who was the son of the uber-communist in India?….nah….just a common name in that part of the world…but it is strange. He is a Sikh ,I am told, yet every Sikh male at his rite of passage ceremony…sort of like a Jewish bar mitzvah…gets the title Singh (Sanskrit for Lion) added to his name….but he doesn’t….are there any Sikhs in our readership who could enlighten me?

This picture of Obama would be perfect for a traveling billboard in Washington! Just add in Killary, and it’s a go. It certainly captures the stone hearts of the first black president, and his side kick Killary.
