Next month, on May 4-5, the Hungarian think tank Center for Fundamental Rights will once again host the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in what will be the largest international action conference for conservatives in Budapest.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has been invited to be the Hungarian keynote speaker at the conservative meeting, but there will be no shortage of foreign stars, including Andrej Babiš and Janez Janša, two former prime ministers of the Czech Republic and Slovenia, respectively; Kari Lake, who is being touted as a possible vice-presidential candidate in the United States; Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro; Herbert Kickl, president of the Austrian Freedom Party; and U.S. Congressmen Barry Moore and Paul Gosar.

There will also be politicians, influencers, and journalists from all over Europe, North and South America, and even Israel and Japan.

“The countdown has begun: we are about to make the liberals’ nightmare of an international coalition of national forces a reality,” wrote the Center for Fundamental Rights in a social media post announcing the news. “CPAC Hungary: together we are strong – and only together we have the strength for peace!”

CPAC has been an annual rally of American conservatives since the 1970s, and the first European forum was organized last year by the Center for Fundamental Rights in the Hungarian capital. The event, which generated enormous interest, focused on the values of “God, Country, Family” and attracted more than 1,500 people, including nearly 200 foreign politicians, journalists and influencers.
