Hungarian officials are demanding that President Joe Biden and his administration apologize for lies.
The demand for an apology comes as Biden and his administration have been caught spreading a "false" story about a Holocaust memorial being vandalized.
"Speaking at what was described as a 'High-Level Side Event on Globalizing Efforts to Combat Antisemitism' by the United States Mission to the United Nations earlier this month, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield had alleged that, alongside a Jewish grave site being vandalized with a swastika, a Russian missile striking a Ukrainian synagogue, and 'someone with hate in their heart' throwing a Molotov cocktail at an American synagogue in New Jersey, a 'Holocaust memorial was vandalized in Hungary,'" reported Breitbart.
"Western officials and commentators have often suggested that Hungary is a hive of anti-Semitism," reports Breitbart, "particularly when the government has criticized the by-his-own-account atheist plutocrat George Soros, despite the Israeli government coming to Budapest’s defense — but this latest accusation has caused particular outrage because the event described by the U.S. ambassador apparently never took place."
State Secretary Zoltán Kovács, a key representative of the Hungarian government to the outside world, spoke out about Greenfield's claims.
Kovács wrote that, "representatives of Hungary stood puzzled by Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield’s claims, as no such act of vandalism had occurred in Hungary for years."
"In fact, Hungary is one of the safest countries for Jewish people in Europe, with Jewish communities experiencing a ‘renaissance’ for more than a decade now," Kovács said.
Kovács and the Hungarian Embassy immediately requested a public correction and formal apology from the United States Embassy.
The Biden administration has "so far refused to comply."
This is seemingly not because Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield or her officials believe that a Holocaust memorial really was vandalised in Hungary — indeed, the section of her speech referring to the incident has been struck through, with an annotation noting that it is in fact Sweden, a generally pro-mass migration, pro-multiculturalism European Union member-state, certainly compared to national conservative Hungary, where a memorial 'honouring the diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who saved thousands of Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary during the Holocaust, was vandalised.'
"No clarification or apology was issued, which would be the bare minimum in such a situation," Hungarian officials insisted.
Americans have learned, and Hungary is now learning, President Biden and his administration perform well below "bare minimum."
