Jobbik, The Movement for a Better Hungary (Hungarian: Jobbik Magyarországért Mozgalom), commonly known as Jobbik, is a patriotic national liberation movement representing the interests of the Hungarian people. The party describes itself as a principled, conservative and radically patriotic Christian party, whose fundamental purpose is the protection of Hungarian values and interests.[2] Measured according to its representation in the European Parliament and the National Assembly, it is Hungary's third largest party.

History and development

1956 veteran Gergely Pongrátz: a Jobbik founder

Foundation

Originally established in 2002 as the Right-Wing Youth Association (Jobboldali Ifjúsági Közösség – JOBBIK) by a group of Catholic and Protestant university students, Jobbik was eventually founded as a political party in October 2003.[3]Template:Third-party-inline Instrumental in this was the person of Gergely Pongrátz, who in a speech to the founding conference made reference to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.[4]Template:Third-party-inline

Around Christmas 2003, Jobbik started a nationwide cross-erecting action to remind Hungarians of the "true meaning" of the holiday. The move was disapproved by several Christian intellectual groups, while the churches did not officially object to the political absorption of the religious symbol.[5] The party has adopted the Árpád stripes as a symbol. The stripes have been in use since the 13th century and have traditionally been associated with Hungary, deriving from the coat of arms of the House of Árpád, the dynasty which St. Stephen I of Hungary belonged to.

Alliances

Even though the far-right Hungarian Justice and Life Party (MIÉP) and Jobbik had publicly shown their mutual aversion beforehand, both parties entered an electoral alliance for the 2006 national elections, called the MIÉP–Jobbik Third Way Alliance of Parties. Its intention was seen as winning votes from the major conservative Fidesz party.[6]

In the 2006 Hungarian national elections the alliance won only 2.2% of the votes. Therefore, Jobbik termed the alliance a failure and virtually broke it up. In 2009 the State Audit Office (ÁSZ) reported the alliance for grave breaches of accounting rules. Jobbik blamed MIÉP alone for the irregularities.[7]

Growth and electoral success

Jobbik was perfectly positioned to capitalize on the mainstream growth in nationalist sentiment associated with the 2006 protests in Hungary. After October 2006 it felt confirmed in the belief that the events of 1989 had essentially been a sham, because “Communists” were still in charge. Subsequent events permitted the party to consolidate its growth.[citation needed]

Krisztina Morvai, who successfully headed the party's 2009 EP candidate list; and Gábor Vona the Jobbik party chairman; during their nationwide tour.

In 2007 the party published a policy document[8] which sought to explain and find solutions to the problems of the preceding years. Named after Gábor Bethlen, it claimed that the country would suffer from a “crisis of constitutionality”, depicted all parties as acting to benefit themselves, corrupt, or idle. However, Jobbik saw a lack of support by the media as an obstacle to disseminating its policy approach. As a result the party was compelled to mobilize primarily at the local level, which however, would bring it closer to the immediate concerns of the Hungarian electorate, namely the local effects of the global financial crisis, and the perceived rise of crime.[citation needed]

The party faced its first electoral test with the coming of the 2009 European parliamentary elections. Once again however, it felt that it was being intentionally excluded by the media from the opportunity of presenting its (symbolically 56 page[9]) manifesto to the public;[10] Consequently, party chairman Vona and Krisztina Morvai (who had agreed to head the party’s list), conducted a nationwide tour to take the party manifesto directly to the electorate. The election’s results surprised Jobbik[11] as much as it shocked their opponents:[12] the party sending three MEPs to Strasbourg; coming close to level with the governing Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) while eliminating their liberal coalition partner Alliance of Free Democrats (SZDSZ), to become the nation’s third party.[13] Unsurprisingly, Morvai’s first speech[14] to the European parliament called for the chamber to be conscious of human rights abuses within the community, i.e. Hungary, in order to secure legitimacy about them taking place in other nations, i.e. Iran; she asserted that every major anti-government demonstration had suffered the same fate since 2006.[15]Template:Third-party-inline Vona himself was pepper sprayed, handcuffed and arrested at a seated protest in Budapest on 4 July 2009,[16]Template:Third-party-inline

Hungary's 2010 parliamentary elections saw Jobbik cement its position as the nation's 3rd largest party, doubling the vote it had received in the previous year and getting just 3 seats less than the previous ruling party MSZP (the Post-Bolshevistic party).

International relations

October 25, 2009 Jobbik founded the Alliance of European National Movements in Budapest together with political parties from four European countries, Nationaldemokraterna (Sweden), Fiamma Tricolore (Italy), Front National (France) and the Front National (Belgium).[17]

Manifesto and political programme

The original programme (in Hungarian) contains 88 pages. There is a shortened English language manifesto: (24 pages) [18]

Issues and ideology

Linguistic clarifications

The Movement for a Better Hungary more commonly goes under its abbreviated name Jobbik (pronounced [ˈjobbik]), which is in fact a play on words. The word Jobb in Hungarian has two meanings, the adjective for “better” and the direction “right,” the comparative Jobbik therefore means both ‘the more preferable choice’ and ‘more to the right’. This is similar to the English "Right Choice" meaning both Conservative and Proper.[citation needed]

The meaning of the party’s 2009 election slogan “Hungary belongs to the Hungarians” (Magyarország a Magyaroké!) was also the subject of considerable scrutiny. Some critics thought the slogan essentially tautological,[19] while others were sufficiently concerned to mount a successful complaint at the National Electoral Commission; which ruled it “unconstitutional” on the very eve of the election.[20] Jobbik maintained that the use of the slogan’s wording was justified because Hungary’s postbolshevic political and economic elite had been engaged in enriching themselves through placing the majority of the country’s significant assets into private or foreign ownership.[21]

Patriotism

Gábor Vona has set out his thoughts in "What do we mean by radicalism?" [22] Jobbik rejects the common classification of the political spectrum in left and right. It prefers a distinction of political parties based on their stance towards globalisation. On this scheme, the party sees itself as patriotic.[23]

Jobbik's ideology has been described as national ideology, whose strategy “relies on a combination of ethno-nationalism with anti-elitist rhetoric and a radical critique of post-bolshevistic political institutions and theft of production establishments and real-estate by post bolshevistic, liberal Jewish "privatizers" .[24][25] The most conspicuous advocate of the Hungarian expression of this nationalistic trend, radical nationalism, is Gábor Vona.

In the place of this illusory divide Jobbik substitutes the twin ideologies of, first, a virtually unrestrained capitalism (namely economic Neoliberalism), and second, modern social liberalism (deemed to include Political correctness and Multiculturalism); which it maintains are the two primary forces actually governing the lives of the modern European (and by extension Hungarian) citizen. But it is also mistaken to believe that these two ideologies are opposed, and in conflict. For Jobbik they represent the status quo, to which the majority of established politicians unquestioningly subscribe.[26] Moreover, any questioning would be pointless because these twin ideologies operate at the trans-national rather than national level. They are imposed and enforced by the directives and regulations of the European Union, which in the form of the Commission has already exclusively appropriated the most significant executive powers of national governments; and whose democratic removal the European elector is (by design) incapable of achieving.[27] As a result the Hungarian citizen is forced to endure a succession of day-to-day realities that fly in the face of their own interests;[28] and there is nothing of merit that politicians from the two main parties can do about it, as a result they either spend their time enriching themselves, or manufacturing political controversies over symbolic issues in order to divert attention from their own impotence and corruption.[29] This is the radical element of Jobbik's ideology.

The nationalist element comes from the suggested solution to this dilemma. As these two currently governing ideologies are considered, by definition, indifferent to the economic fate or cultural survival of the Hungarian people: nationalism is revealed as a sensible, intelligent and worthwhile political choice.[29] And a new and realistic divide emerges, which permits one to make valid and useful distinctions between policy options or Euro-legislation. Namely, does it serve the national interest, or not. As Morvai Krisztina remarked on the 2009 campaign trail, “We have no use in Hungary, for those laws,[30] which in our own land actively disadvantage Hungarians and prioritise the interests of foreigners.”[31] Consequently, Vona has stated that he sees one of the key functions of the party to be compelling those in Hungarian public life to profess which side of this actual political dividing line they occupy. To declare “on which side of the real barricade they stand.”[32] The party’s magazine is entitled “Barricade” (Barikád)[33] for this reason.

Jobbik's interpretation of Hungarian nationalism also includes the ideology of Turanism which stresses the (alleged) origin of the Magyar peoples in Central Asia, and the links of the Hungarians to Asian, especially Turkic peoples. Therefore Jobbik leader Gábor Vona favors Hungaria turning away from the so called, zionistic West (including the Euro-Atlantic alliances) and towards the "East", to form a "Turanian alliance" whose "Western bastion" Hungary should become.[34]

Jobbik's Greater Hungarian irredentist claims can be found in pleas for cross-border ethnic self-determination. For example, the party demands "territorial autonomy" for the Székely Land in Romania and desires to make Transcarpathian Ukraine an independent Hungarian district.[35]

Cultural conservatism

Jobbik tries to clean Hungarian culture from Bolshevistic-liberal pseudo culture and pornography.[36]

Policy position

Imminent EU regulations on arable land ownership are a major party issue.

The economy

Jobbik rejects the globalised capitalism, and the influence of foreign investors in Hungary.[37]

Hungarian losses of territory in the Treaty of Trianon, which is naturally perceived as wrong by Jobbik.[citation needed] [40]

Jobbik dedicates itself to supporting the cause of the significant (a quarter of Hungarians live outside Hungary[41]) Hungarian minorities that exist external to the nation's territory in countries bordering Hungary[42] in their campaigns[citation needed] to achieve self-determination and autonomy.[43]

Of the three victorious powers of World War I it was the United States under Woodrow Wilson which argued for self-determination amongst the ethnic communities of the Austro-Hungarian empire.The city of Sopron was given the opportunity of deciding whether it wished to become part of Hungary or Austria through a plebiscite in 1921 following unrest. It decided on the former, but no other town was again granted the privilege.</ref> France and Britain however, arguably had a broader strategic agenda of ensuring that any future resurgent Germany would not have a European industrial ally to call upon. They therefore sought by their boundary decisions, primarily to economically cripple Austria and Hungary respectively to ensure this objective. Though their intentions are a subject of debate, two consequences of their actions nevertheless followed. First, Austria-Hungary having been an autarky, its successor states were indeed economically crippled; Germany in World War II had no such industrially significant ally.) Second, the Treaty of Trianon (which in 1920 specifically partitioned the Kingdom of Hungary) left large ethnically Hungarian communities (whose residence had spanned centuries) outside the territorial border of modern Hungary; such communities today making up one quarter of Central Europe’s Magyar population.[41] As a consequence the Hungarian constitution states that, “The Republic of Hungary bears a sense of responsibility for what happens to Hungarians living outside of its borders and promotes the fostering of their relations with Hungary.”[44]

However, according to Jobbik, successive Hungarian governments have found it inconvenient to honour this commitment. The resolution of the Magyar minority issue was sold as a chief benefit of joining the European Community. In Jobbik's view, the EU seems merely to have hoped that accession would have made this issue somehow disappear. Jobbik sees the EU's continued and resolute refusal to get involved in any alleged incident of the infringement of Magyar minority rights as being in stark contrast to frequent and repeated highlighting of the Roma minority issue. In Hungary, Jobbik argues, minority issues are actively promoted and defended (through exclusive multi-ethnic radio and TV times, and dedicated social funding); the deliberate curtailment of Magyar rights is seen as not merely a rhetorical feature of the political extremes of some neighbouring countries, but actually a part of official government policy or of persisting legislation. (e.g. the racist Beneš decrees) Jobbik campaigns for these communities to be given the opportunity of self-determination that was originally denied them. As a result the party has caused concern amongst those whose political or constitutional principles are strictly opposed to even countenancing such a proposal, due to commitments to territorial integrity.

Hungarophobic campaign

Jobbik have been victims of a vast and extensive Hungarophobic propaganda campaign in the international press. This largely eminates from decadent liberal "academics"/public policy think-tanks in the West, barely concealed supporters of communism and Jewish supremacists (who support Khazarian ethnocracy in Palestine but work tirelessly against Christian nations). These identity groups and others are opposed to Hungary being a healthy Christian nation which serves the interests of its own people and choose to attack Jobbik for that reason. A broad array of operant conditioning epithets are slung out against Jobbik, including the typical playground name-calling of "fascist", "anti-semitic", "anti-gypsy", "homophobic", etc. This propaganda campaign also includes Wikipedia, which features a sardonic and heavily bias article against the party, violating its own supposed premise of neutral point of view for a completely Judeocentric line.

The Hungarian Guard

Main article: Magyar Gárda
The Hungarian Guard in their cultural role. Here a Guard choir sings in Békéscsaba.

The symbol of the Guard, the crest of King Emeric, decorated with lions and Árpád stripes, which is also part of their uniform.

In June 2007 president Vona, supported by the party, founded and registered the organisation called Magyar Gárda, which says in its deed of foundation that it intends to become “part or core” of the national guard to be set up in accordance with the Bethlen Gábor programme, and it also wishes to participate actively “in strengthening national self-defence” and “maintaining public order” as well as supporting and organising social and charity missions, in disaster prevention and civil defence. The foundation of the Guard was accompanied by sharp political debate.

On 10 March 2008 three leading figures resigned from the party: Dávid Kovács, the founding president of the party, Ervin Nagy, committee chairman, and Márton Fári, former chairman of the party’s ethical committee. They indicated the Hungarian Guard as the cause of their resignation, stating that "Jobbik has been merged inseparably with the Guard, taking responsibility for something that it cannot really control in the long run".

On 2 July 2009 the Metropolitan Court of Appeal (Fővárosi Ítélőtábla) disbanded the "Magyar Gárda" Organization because the court held that the activities of the organization were against the human rights of minorities as guaranteed by the Hungarian Constitution. The Guard has attempted to reorganize itself as a civil service association, known as the Magyar Gárda Foundation, engaged in cultural and nation building activities rather than politics. Its renewed activities are opposed by the Hungarian authorities [45] and prosecutors claim that the founding of the new organization is in contempt of previous court rulings.

Jobbik argues that the national police should be greatly strengthened and -with the FIDESZ- supports introducing a "three strikes law" [46] The radical nationalism in Hungary, including Jobbik protested against Israeli President Shimon Peres, after he said that "Israel is buying up Hungary".[47]
