Santorum, Farage, Bolsonaro, Klaus Address CPAC

Former Republican Senator Rick Santorum, British politician Nigel Farage and Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, emphasized their belief in God and their values ​​based on it in their addresses to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Budapest on Thursday patriotism and family.

Santorum said people today are focused on their own pleasures and see marriage and children as things that limit their freedom. He agreed with Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s view that faith should come first.

He congratulated Hungary on its support for families and the church by having the courage to speak the truth.

In a video message accompanying the conference, Nigel Farage, former leader of the UK Independence Party, praised Hungary’s achievements.

“We all want to work together as sovereign states,” he said. “We will have different views on things. We may have different views on Russia and oil,” he added. “But we have common values. We believe in the integrity of our societies. We believe in the Judeo-Christian culture that underpins literally everything that represents western civilization, and we know that we are waging a war against those who want to destroy everything. And it is these things that bring us together in unity.”

Eduardo Bolsonaro, a member of Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies, said in a video message that CPAC Hungary was the right place for conservatives to discuss what they wanted to achieve.

Bolsonaro said conservatives are “very sad” only in power in Hungary, Brazil “and a few other few countries.” This, he said, shows that the left’s “lies” were working.

“Because if we have the opportunity to tell the truth, we will win all debates and bring freedom to all countries,” he said.

Secretary of State for International Communications and Relations Zoltan Kovacs, former Czech President and Prime Minister Vaclav Klaus and, in a video message, US House Representative Mike Waltz also spoke at the conference.

Kovacs said reality is the Conservatives’ most important ally. “Our social policy, policy preparation work, policy making and implementation are grounded in reality, the assessment of reality and its resonance with society,” he added. The “unprecedented” two-thirds victory in this spring’s elections proved that the path taken and the lessons learned could be instructive.

Klaus said Hungary’s example proved that victory was possible with conservative policies, which he described as “inspirational”.

It is important to protect the “fragile West” from internal spiritual enemies, and the war in Ukraine has proved once again that all military conflicts lead to the suppression of freedom and the spread of propaganda.

Waltz said in a video message that more people died at the hands of communist regimes around the world than in the name of any other ideology. Still, more than 30 percent of young Americans have a positive view of communism, he said. They had no idea communist regimes had destroyed the lives of hundreds of millions, he added.
