Called the “gay propaganda law,” the legislation passed last week in parliament follows similar moves in Russia in 2013 that define written or visual materials pertaining to sex reassignment or homosexuality as propaganda that should not be allowed to reach children.
The measure, which President Janos Ader signed Wednesday, has triggered a diplomatic spat between Hungary and other member states of the European Union.
The Golem Theater, a Budapest-based institution that deals extensively with Jewish subjects and has many Jewish members, said on Facebook that it “stands against the propaganda law.”
Mazsihisz, the largest federation of Jewish communities in Hungary, also criticized the legislation without naming it in the group’s statement. Mazsihisz defines itself as a religious community.
“The Mazsihisz, as a Jewish group, firmly believes that all people are inherently pure and their emotions do not make them unclean,” the statement read. “No one should be labeled impure, be discriminated against and certainly not outlawed simply because of their orientation or identity. Such classifications destroy social cohesion and our sense of belonging.”
Hungary’s right-wing government under Viktor Orban has clashed on several issues with Mazsihisz, which has warned that the government’s campaign criticizing Jewish billionaire philanthropist George Soros risks encouraging antisemitism, and that the government is facilitating Holocaust revisionism. Other local Jewish groups, including the EMIH Jewish federation, have disputed these allegations.
We wouldn’t be going out on an antisemitic limb to suggest that Jews are the single-most influential group in promoting homosexual propaganda to children — and society in general.
Poland passed a similar law in 2019 making it illegal to promote any sexual activity to under-age children — not just LGBT materials — but it was clearly directed at stopping the spread of subversive LGBT ideology in general.
But let’s let Amy Dean, an American Jewess — in her own words — tell us about the Jewish role in promoting and normalizing homosexuality:
In a few short years, same-sex marriage went from being an untouchable political hot potato to a broadly accepted civil right in eighteen states and the District of Columbia. Jews, and their social justice organizations, helped make that happen. In fact, this magazine was a prophetic voice of marriage equality, supporting same-sex unions in the early 1990s and helping to lay the groundwork for the current wave of victories. “How Jews Brought America to the Tipping Point on Marriage Equality: Lessons for the Next Social Justice Issues,” Tikkun, March 16, 2014
And Rachel Weiner, another Jewish activist, admitted that Jews used their “immense influence” in Hollywood to promote their gay propaganda in the media:
Think – behind of all that, I bet you 85% of those changes, whether [gay marriage propaganda] in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry. The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good. Quoted in “Biden: Jewish leaders helped gay marriage succeed,” Washington Post, May 22, 2013.
