Embassy Statement in Support of LGBTQ in Hungary Criticized in Romania

Young Europeans, born after the era of communist oppression, know the phenomenon of unanimity in a political context by hearsay at best and may think nothing of it in the absence of dissent or abstention. Those who spent part of their lives in the former Eastern bloc, on the other hand, react suspiciously to any kind of unbroken unanimity, even when it does not concern delicate matters, such as the situation of sexual minorities. Indeed, contemporary witnesses of communism know all too well how political reservations or even objections were handled and unanimous decisions were enforced in those days. The fact that this document was published by the U.S. Embassy is probably no coincidence and reflects the Biden administration’s claim to assert U.S. hegemony on ideological issues as well.
