Not unlike the opinion of KDNP politicians, the national policy advisor of the head of state sees the analogy Easter as well founded.
“The media-driven political assassination of president Schmitt and his wife represents a total attack on our political community and our value generating will” – wrote by Antal Kiss, former strategic advisor as well as a colleague and friend of Pál Schmitt for 10 years, in an article published on the conservative online media portal “Mandiner”. “Do you still remember the whispering, background bargaining, coward Pharisees of the gospels whose verdict was crowned by a discreet agreement between the prelate and the politician? And truly, let's mention a parallel with Easter on this ground: the proceeding, the crowd requiring blood and sensation, the psychosis, the silent mass accompanying the execution, Judas, the cowards and tacits, the two staying at the foot of the cross…” – making analogy by Kiss, who is of the opinion that the head of state was executed in political terms and the scenario under which it was done was “devilish”.
He is not the first who draws an analogy between the president of the republic who was compelled to resign due to his scandal of plagiarism, and Jesus Christ. The declaration by the Tatabánya unit of KDNP has also raised the beloved head of state to the rank of a god. “We see a sad analogy between the shameful attacks against Pál Schmitt, President of the Republic and the Good Friday Judgement. It is especially sad that a highly respected institution of the country, namely the Semmelweis University takes on the role of Pilate (…), but the persons passing the judgement have underperformed Pilate even because, while Jesus himself was the one who did not want to talk, in the case of Pál Schmitt, the university council did not want to listen to him at all” – this is the predication and the sheep in Tatabánya of Zsolt Semjén (president of the party) say the following together with Jesus: “The one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.”
Actually, who are those mysterious wrongdoers?
Of course, they are the “entire parliamentary opposition” who put the university into the role of Pilate and incite the people to cry aloud:
“Let his blood be on us and our children!” To top up this complete catachresis, the author expresses his gratitude to Pál Schmitt for „standing up for truth and justice, and for giving an example in struggling for all the humiliated”. This declaration was created on „Palm Sunday of 2012”, from which follows that the text must have been ready already on the day prior to the head of state’s resignation, and this community considered that its content was up-to-date also after the „conversion of Paul”.
Schmitt’s case tempted most of all Zoltán Osztie, a parish priest who speaks out rarely, but then heavily, in terms of Christian tolerance and forgiveness. Since February 2010 no public event could motivate him to issue a declaration, but now he issued one, and what is more, he issued it as the chairman of the Association of Christian Intellectuals (KÉSZ). „It was enough from alien-hearted treasonists who, as members of a fierce minority, go on with their hate campaign, without inhibitions”, he wrote; and his antisemitic code language could deserve a university doctor degree on a standalone basis. “Who are they?” – the parish priest asks, and he immediately provides help in finding the correct answer: people like the activists of the One Million for Press Freedom in Hungary movement, „who are being financed from abroad in order to disintegrate our country with their anarchist actions”. Troubled by his assertion that after all, „an anarchist group with political motivation governs the behaviour and decision-making of the Senate of SOTE doctors and of the university’s rector”, Osztie calls for prohibiting public appearances of those who „have human lives on their consciousness” and „caused ruination of a multitude of families”.
