Viktor Orban wins fourth landslide victory in Hungary (and other stories)

A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.

Hungary’s Viktor Orban has won another landslide victory, securing his fourth term in office. Predictably, the media monolith is rending its garments and insinuating that the election must have been stolen, but the reality is that it was a tough race and up until recently, it appeared that the combined opposition forces might be able to defeat Orban. Anyway, here’s Rod Dreher’s exuberant take on it all—he was in Budapest for the election.

Social conservatives scored a rare victory at the United Nations. From C-Fam:

The 54 Member States of the UN Commission on the Status of Women have refused to bow to U.S. and EU pressure on homosexual/trans issues. The just-concluded commission adopted an agreement largely along the lines of past years, with marginal bureaucratic gains for homosexual/trans issues and abortion groups through ambiguous terms like “sexual and reproductive health” and “women in diverse situations and conditions.”

Homosexual/trans groups, however, were disappointed that the phrase “sexual orientation and gender identity” appeared nowhere in the final document. Advocates were bullish after a win in the General Assembly last fall but that win came only after subterfuge that left a bad taste in the mouths of many delegations.

The government of British Columbia has removed “over 750 instances of gendered language” from its forms and documents, including “wife/husband” and “mother/father.” This is about eliminating the natural family as normative. People get that, too—just read the hidden replies beneath the tweet.

Do your kids have TikTok? Here’s what they were treated to when they opened the app last week. A Chinese-owned company pushing content that the Chinese would never allow in front of their own kids—makes you think, doesn’t it? These decisions, by the way, are made in boardrooms. If your kids have TikTok, get rid of it. Period.

So Fox News has hired Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner as a regular contributor, presumably because he says he is “trans but not a trans activist.” If anything highlights the dangers of the “anti-woke” coalition, it is the so-called conservative network assisting in the normalization of America’s most famous transgender person.

The Washington Examiner is reporting that one California city is now actually creating financial incentives for identifying as transgender or non-binary (which is a meaningless, made-up term):

A California city is hoping to launch a pilot program that will guarantee a monthly income of up to $900 to transgender and nonbinary residents. The city council of Palm Springs, California, unanimously passed a bill on March 24 to provide $200,000 to DAP Health and Queer Works to design the program and apply for state funding.
