I am opposed to Joe Biden’s ”Big Democracy Summit.”
I am pro Hungary.
I am mostly pro Viktor Orban.
I am mostly pro the Turkish people, who are wonderful.
And I am mostly against recent Turkish government policies.
I am not associated with an American political party.
America is a Federal Republic. America is not a DEMOCRACY.
Perhaps President Biden can be of service to American voters by pointing out the spots in the Constitution featuring the word DEMOCRACY.
Here Foreign Policy’s Robbie Gramer and Jack Detsch explain Biden’s snub of two NATO allies, Hungary and Turkey:
The Biden administration is inviting around 120 countries to join its Summit for Democracy next week, but two of its NATO allies aren’t getting a call.
Turkey and Hungary have been left off the invitation list for the major summit, which Team Biden bills as one of its hallmark foreign-policy initiatives, meant to shore up democracies worldwide and stanch the rise of autocracies.
Backsliding. The spurning of two NATO allies, confirmed by three U.S. officials who spoke to SitRep, reflects a mounting concern with the degree of democratic backsliding in Turkey and Hungary, even though Washington is relying on both to support the West’s strategy against Russia as the war in Ukraine rages on—and needs both to approve Finland and Sweden’s bids to join NATO as full-fledged allies.
They continue later:
The snub is likely to inflame tensions between Washington and the two NATO allies even further as well as widen the distance between the rest of the NATO and EU alliance and the two outliers.
The upcoming Summit for Democracy, scheduled from March 28 to March 30, involves a hodgepodge of in-person and virtual events in Washington and four partner countries—Costa Rica, South Korea, the Netherlands, and Zambia—with U.S. President Joe Biden and around 20 of his most senior administration officials participating.
