Horthy memorial service

On Saturday, hundreds of Hungarian patriots and nationalists attended a memorial service for Miklós Horthy in his resting place in Kenderes. Horthy was an admiral in the Austro-Hungarian Navy during the First World War and the regent of Hungary from 1920 to 1944. He was a conservative that wanted to united Hungary back with her lost territories after the Treaty of Trianon in 1920. Horthy was no fascist as the Hungarian left-wing often claim. Not surprisingly, the left-wing often labels anyone that doesn't agree with them as a fascist. They've even claimed that the 1956 Hungarian Revolution was a "fascist revolution" when clearly it wasn't.

Various conservative and nationalist organizations were in attendance for the memorial. The World Federation of Hungarians organized the memorial on the occasion that Horthy liberated Budapest on November 16, 1919. Several speeches were given by individuals at the memorial. János Volner, the vice-president of the nationalist Jobbik party, said that "Horthy had to face the same problems we face today". He added that there are individuals in the country today that want to sell off Hungary to foreign/globalist interests.

Every year a memorial for Horthy is conducted in order to remember this Hungarian patriot. He holds a special place in the hearts of many Hungarians today. Unfortunately, he was vilified by the communist regime during the Cold War and now by the Hungarian left-wing and their contacts in the mainstream media.
