Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to be held in Hungary

1
Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union and organizer of its influential conference series CPAC, told NPR this week that he was bringing his event to Hungary because it ‘represents Christian conservative values’ and American conservatives want to replicate this in the U.S. by learning from the country’s ultra-right-wing authoritarian prime minister, Viktor Orbán…. The decision by Schlapp and the ACU to sponsor an event in the home of one of the most draconian regimes in the Western world may seem shocking, but for anyone paying any attention to how the Republican Party has lurched to the right in recent years, it almost seems logical at this point.”

Trump's movement wants to rig elections so it can have 'super majorities' with only 'one-third' of voters: expert

The Conservative Political Action Conference this week is meeting in Hungary, where authoritarian strongman Viktor Orban is giving them pointers on how to take and wield power.
"Orban’s base is about the same size as Trump’s base: About a third of the Hungarian population will defend him no matter what," she explains. The rest of Orban’s victory is a combination of lying about the opposition, coming up with hot button issues that get the electorate riled up before the election, coming out with all of these social welfare benefits to essentially buy off parts of constituency and then rigged election rules."
Orban won reelection with a campaign slogan of 'peace and security,' promising Hungarians, 'I will not drag you into war, but the opposition will,'" says Scheppele. "Which was a lie about the opposition, but Orban controls all the media, so how was the opposition going to get their views out?"

Orban is using the tried and effective tactics of an authoritarian system, State controlled media and rigged elections, a MAGA dream.

I knew a Hungarian many many years ago. Nicest guy not racist. He had fought and fled Hungary back during the Hungarian Uprising of 1956. To escape he had to walk almost 200 miles at night to the get to safety. He thought the US was the greatest country on earth because of all our freedoms.

I read where CPAC in Hungary is not allowing in any "Western" journalists.

The same minority here in the states is trying essentially the same thing in declining to participate in any debates or in any way where the policies could publicly be questioned.

I hope that strategy bites them in the butts.

CPAC should be declared a Foreign Agent since they like Hungry so much and also a seditious party. they should be forbidden to contribute to any political party of candidate, Federal, State or Loca, here in the US.
