NPR – One of the leaders of Hungary’s Jobbik Party, which the Anti-Defamation League says is one of the few political parties in Europe to overtly campaign with anti-Semitic materials, has discovered that he is himself a Jew.
As the AP says, Csanad Szegedi had in the past railed about the “Jewishness” of the political class. According to the ADL, his party’s presidential candidate referred to Israeli Jews as “lice-infested, dirty murderers.”
For Szegedi all of this came to a screeching halt, when in 2010 a prisoner confronted him with evidence that he had Jewish roots. According to the AP, Szegedi tried to bribe the prisoner to keep him quiet, but rumors and innuendo reached a fever pitch by late last year and in June, Szegedi conceded that his mother was a Jew. According to Jewish law, that makes Szegedi Jewish, too.
It is not a good day for Csanad Szegedi and the Jobbik party. Not a good day at all. Not the best move when you lead an anti-Semitic political party only to find out a Jew has been leading the Gentiles all along. What’s the play here by the followers? Does this call for a stoning or what?
First thing this reminded me of was the Chappelle Show with the black KKK member. Nothing throws a wrench in your non-Jew plans like being a Jew running said non-Jew plans. Hey, Csanad…can’t win em all.
