Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Among the parties, it is an influence only on the far-right. I showed this photo from the September riots/protests (showing skinheads 'camouflaged' for the Western press as ordinary people with civilian clothes):

...though, as main right-wing party Fidesz has assimilated part of the far-right, it is not alien to lower-ranked in that party, either. Regarding the far-right in Fidesz, there just has been a scandal of the photo of a Budapest district's deputy party secretary in SS uniform:

(The guy was excluded from Fidesz the very next day, though.)

Now this is the parties. However, among common people, the backstabbing theory is much more widespread.

There is however another way 1956 international relationships come up. There is a view that 1956 failed because of seeking non-alignment, that is, a small country is better off as the vassal of one or another superpower, even if superpowers are treasonous assholes. There are adherents of this 'theory' both Left and Right, and currently, they argue for a US alignment.

Final anecdote, moving back to common people: a (conservative) uncle who died a few years ago used to argue from the middle of the nineties that Hungary again picks the wrong superpower; he claimed the USA is dead and we should look toward China.
