(Hungarian-Lobby,601) Levelek Tillersonnak

 Kelt 2017 november 17-én Stamfordban

 
Tisztelt Magyar Lobbi társaim!
 
Köszönöm a rengeteg levél másolatot, melyek közül kettőt alább mellékelek. E mellett felhivom a figyelmet a Magyar Nemzetnek e kérdéssel foglalkozó riportjára is:
 
 
Ezzel kapcsolatban a következőket szeretném megjegyezni:
 
 
A Magyar Lobbi nem támogatja sem a kormányt, sem az ellenzéket! Lobbink a magyar nemzet érdekeit és a magyar választó polgároknak tényekkel való felvilágositottságát támogatja. Lobbink tudja, hogy bölcs nép a magyar, nem lehet pártvonalakkal vagy uszitással félrevezetni, és tudjuk azt is, hogy mig a kommunizmus idején szükség volt, hogy a nyugati rádiók ellensúlyozzák a kormánypropaganda agymosási igyekezetét, ma erre már nincs szükség! Ma nem kell szamizdát! Amerika részéről meg arról van szó, hogy a mi demokráciánk ne süjjedjen az orosz KGB-sek szintjére, ne üsse bele az orrát más országok belpolitikájába és ne keltse ezzel a magyarság rossz hirét a világban.
A másik megjegyzésem az, hogy a magyar kisebbségi média és oktatás támogatása nem "más országok belügyeibe való beavatkozás!" Fontos ezt a különbséget jól megérteni! A kisebbségek jogainak biztositása nem belügy, az az egész emberiség kötelessége! Amikor Amerika egy demokráciában folyó politikai kampány kimenetelét próbálja befolyásolni, az elitélendő kontárkodás, de amikor belátja, hogy az emberi jogokat nem lehet és nem szabad határok közé szoritani, hogy azok átnyulnak a térképekre rajzolt határvonalakon, - mert a határ az csak egy vonal egy papiron -, mig a jog, az ember joga a sajátjához, a gyökereihez, az mindannyiunk tulajdona. Ezt az elvet jól érti minden amerikai polgár és ideje, hogy kormányunk is megértse.

The Honorable Rex Tillerson
United States Secretary of State
 
Dear Secretary Tillerson:
 
I am a Hungarian American retired physician and university professor who immigrated in the United States in 1967. I recently learned that the State Department Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) is asking for applications and wishes to support unspecified Hungarian media that the Department deems “objective.” The States Department’s intent is allegedly to provide information to the Hungarian public about domestic and international political issues which the State Department believes Hungarians are not aware of or are cut off from. Hungary is not North Korea, as this project seems to imply, but is a free and democratic country with duly elected government (whether one likes it or not) and representatives, has freedom of press that is allowed to express any political or other opinion, and Hungarians have access to any foreign publication, TV, radio or social media.
 
When it comes to Hungarian media it is slanderous to insinuate that all lack objectivity. I wonder how the State Department will decide which one is “objective” and which one is not. Do we know this in the United States? Don’t we fight “fake news”? If we cannot determine this question in our own, how shall we do this in a foreign country? Should the Hungarian government support say CNN versus Fox News or vice a versa to assure that the American public receive “objective information”? Under the disguise of “objectivity” this project is simply a patronizing interference for some unspecified political agenda. It is truly ironic that we would meddle in the politics of a foreign country when we are investigating Russian interference in last year’s election. Are we sinking to the level of the Russians? Or is this behavior now an international norm?
 
Hungary has 1100-year history and culture, an excellent educational system, and I can assure you, Mr. Secretary, that the Hungarian public is quite capable of deciding which news to accept as objective and which to reject as false propaganda. After decades of Russian occupation, Hungarians have become savvy in making this distinction.
 
I hope and wish that the State Department will reconsider this project and refrain from trying to influence the internal politics of a sovereign nation.
 
Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.
 
Respectfully yours,

Dear Mr. Tillerson:
 
    This letter is to register my strong objection to the plan of US State Department's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DNL) (https://www.state.gov/j/drl/p/275396.htm) to subsidize opposition newspapers in Hungary, a free and democratic country with uncensored media. The US has no right to meddle in the domestic politics of a friendly NATO ally with a freely elected government. As an American taxpayer and voting citizen I strongly object to the use of my tax dollars to destabilize a successfully operating country in the name of “spreading democracy”, a policy that led to the destruction of Libya and Syria by the previous administration.
            Hungarians are not stupid, and they resent it when ill-informed outsiders try force-feeding them with left-liberal propaganda. They are in fact a contentious lot and perfectly able to recognize a dictatorship when they see one and deal with it in their own way. They fought for their freedom under Soviet oppression in 1956 and they will fight for it again if necessary. They are friends of the US; please don’t turn against them by heavy-handed meddling in their internal affairs which is as intolerable to them as it is to many American voting citizens of Hungarian descent who would like to see friendly relations restored between their old and the new countries.
 
            Remember, meddling in the domestic politics of other countries is not only against international law but against the democratic principles the US wants to champion in the world—and at home, when foreign powers are found to intrude into American elections.
 
Respectfully yours,

P.S.: Please don’t bother sending me a pre-printed, general statement about US foreign policy; I received many of those from the previous administration. I want an answer that addresses the issue I raise in this letter.
