Leader Of Anti-Semitic Party In Hungary Discovers He's Jewish →

FJP: News following comedy - Remember Dave Chappelle’s Clayton Bigsby, the blind racist?

kohenari:

If Alanis Morissette ever does a follow-up to her “Ironic” song, I’m hoping this gets worked in there somewhere (especially since it’s actually ironic, unlike most of the examples she chose for her song):

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.

Not only that, but Szegedi’s grandmother survived Auschwitz and his grandfather survived labor camps.

    If he tried to bribe the messenger, it seems to me that he didn’t just find out; rather, he already knew it and wanted...
