One could say that Budaházy is simply a lunatic and therefore harmless. Perhaps the prosecutor’s office shouldn’t have even bothered bringing charges against him. Maybe, but once charges were levelled against him and these charges were well founded, then the judges shouldn’t have dismissed them and pronounced him not guilty because such a verdict emboldens him and his followers.
Indeed, that’s exactly what has happened. Budaházy, accompanied by another lunatic, László Toroczkai, the man who was largely responsible for the "storming" of the Hungarian Television’s building, gave a "press conference" today. Appropriately in front of the House of Terror! Toroczkai announced a new political action plan: a nationwide "raid." He used the word "razzia"! But what hidden stuff are they looking for? Well, that’s not at all what he meant: Toroczkai and Budaházy want "to hunt down all those politicians who sold out the fatherland." Even their vocabulary is telling: these are ignorant people.
The plan is as follows: they will print 600,000 leaflets and 10,000 billboards on which they will call on the people to report on those who look suspicious: policemen, custom officials, members of the secret service, employees of the APEH (the equivalent of the Internal Revenue Service), newspapermen, prosecutors, judges, civil servants, all those who receive their salaries from the central budget. "One cannot hide from the people," Toroczkai added. Toroczkai, Budaházy, and the other lunatics will check all the incoming information and if those mentioned turned out to be guilty, they will mete out their well deserved punishment. The "punishment" will be exposure and denunciation. All the information gathered will be made public on the internet, which "the authorities cannot yet censor." (This, by the way, is a decided improvement over their previous threats of physical violence against the guilty.)
Toroczkai complained that the Pest County Court refused to register an organization that he and Budaházy wanted to establish. The name of the organization would have been "Hunnia Foundation for the Real Hungary." That organization would have served to establish a "parallel" Hungary. However, they will try again. They are appealing the decision. If they are unsuccessful in Hungary they plan to register the organization in some other country within the European Union.
Budaházy also spoke. According to him, the "present republic cannot be saved, cannot be reformed." That’s why an alternative Hungary, called Hunnia, will have to be created that will not be a "legal successor of the present country but its independent and organic part."
Surely, these sentences can be spoken only by people who are not exactly in their right minds. Let’s hope that these utterances are no more than empty threats. Where would they get the money to print 600,000 leaflets and 10,000 posters? But what if they do get the money from somewhere? Surely, even then they cannot put an end to the Third Republic. However, they can certainly add to the turbulence created by Viktor Orbán and his followers.
