All this was said by the government minister whose leader set up a public stadium in Felixu next to his house.
“Look, I find it very harmful and dangerous when anyone wants to confuse politics with sports.”
Said the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Brussels to a question from reporters.
Peter Szijjarto has responded to an initiative calling for UEFA to make Munich’s Allianz Arena the rainbow for the Hungary-Germany match – in protest of a recently passed law that essentially equates pedophilia and homosexuality. The head of the ministry recalled that there had already been some similar attempts to mix sport and politics in world history and “they were put down very badly”. The minister believes that in this case there is an intention to mix politics with law “Western Europe now “is branching out. Moreover, they want to express the latter by bringing politics to a sporting event that has nothing to do with national legislation.
“I think it’s very harmful, historical experience shows it’s bad and I think the Germans do it too – if anyone knows exactly that. So confusing sports with politics is a bad thing.”
– said Peter Szijjártó.
The minister’s words also seem strange in light of the fact that it was Viktor Orban who built a stadium in Félixit with public funds next to his house – but it is enough to think of the leaders of sports federations, most of whom are politicians in Fides. . Peter Szijjarto may have forgotten that it was the Prime Minister who these days spoke out against kneeling before matches, thus introducing it into the public political discourse.
