Former National Development Minister Tamás Fellegi demonized Jobbik in Washington

Friday, March 1, 2013


There is a clear demarcation line between Jobbik, the Hungarian center-right government and the other mainstream parties. Jobbik is the only openly anti-Semitic party in Hungary said former National Development Minister Tamas Fellegi in Washington on Wednesday in front of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs on European antisemitism and Islam.

Antisemitism in Hungary is on the rise due to problems created by the democratic transition process and the frustration triggered by the deep political, economic and moral crisis that has been dominating public life since 2006. About 10 per cent of the population supporting the openly anti-Semitic Jobbik party, but despite this Jewish life in Hungary is flourishing said Fellegi.

"The entire Hungarian political establishment was responsible for the Holocaust, which was a tragedy". The one-party communist rule after the second world war didn't encourage people to face history, as the communist elite was antisemitic as well that manifested itself in the anti-Israeli policies of the communist party.

The democratic transition after the collapse of communism has allowed "the previously repressed frustrations to appear". As a result, "openly anti-Semitic political and civil organizations popped up in every segment of society, but they never - let me repeat that point -- never formed a government" said Fellegi.

Jobbik is an openly anti-Semitic and an anti-Roma party that gained a foothold in Hungarian politics as a result of the eight years of socialist-liberal rule, which brought the country to the brink of economic collapse.

Jobbik's military wing (the Hungarian Guard ed.) was banned, but despite the ban it keeps re-inventing itself; the freedom of speech provision allows to the openly antisemitic Jobbik party to disseminate racist views in the media and in the Hungarian parliament said Fellegi.

"Personally, I think that one of the results of the rise of the Jobbik party is the decline of community sensitivity to racism. Regardless what people think, we have to come to terms with the fact that the Jobbik party has become a permanent feature in Hungarian politics" said Fellegi.



"In the newly born democracies antisemitism and pro-Jewish sentiments are equally present and both issues have been politicized. Political parties and civil organizations have learned quickly how to use antisemitism for their own benefits. Antisemitism has become a tool of manipulation" said Fellegi.

He added that public opinion polls show that there is a significant overlap among Jobbik and Socialist supporters. "Does this mean that the political left and the center-right are racists or free from bias? The answer to both questions is no”.

It is undeniable that some center-right journalists like Zsolt Bayer sometimes writes racist articles. "It is also a fact that there are certain individuals associated with the center-right government that support the rehabilitation of Admiral Horthy. I am personally opposed to the rehabilitation of Horthy and the Horthy era" said Fellegi.

Jobbik rejects the accusations

Reacting to Tamás Fellegi's testimony in front of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs on European antisemitism and Islam Jobbik spokesperson Ádám Mirkóczki remarked that “it is true that Jobbik differs from the mainstream parties on several issues, but the Jewish question is not among them”. We do not care about the ethnic background of people, we don't classify them on the basis of their race. Jobbik divides people into two main groups -- “builders and destroyers”. It's not our fault that gypsies fall into the latter category and Israel is one of the worst violators of Hungarian national interests.

Jobbik and the mainstream parties are indeed differ on issues such as the European Union, the NATO and the national debt, but these issues have nothing to do with antisemitism.

Mirkócki pointed out that Tamás Fellegi, the Hungarian government and the other mainstream parties, in the spirit of political correctness, bow down to Israel, the United States and Brussels. Mirkóczki added that Jobbik would have never gone to a U.S. Subcommittee hearing to testify against Hungary.

In these tormented times, those who call things by their proper name are stigmatized, they are called antisemites and racists. We don't discriminate against anyone on the basis of its race. We don't care if an individual is Jewish or it belongs to some other race; what we are interested in who violates Hungary's economic and political interests – unfortunately, Israel is among the worst violators of Hungarian national interest said Mirkóczki.

Does he really think all the people of Israel violets hungarian interests? or that Israel controls Wall Street or IMF? I don't know if that kind of paranoia couls be clasified as antisemitism, but he clearlly has unjustified isues against the jews.

Does he really want to point at enemies of Hungary? Most of them are hungarians

Screen Propaganda, Hollywood and the CIA

www.globalresearch.ca/screen-propaganda-hollywood-and-the-cia/

“One of the most pervasive trends in 21st century western culture has become somewhat of an obsession in America. It’s called “Hollywood history”, where the corporate studio machines in Los Angeles spend hundreds of millions of dollars in order to craft and precisely tailor historical events to suit the prevailing political paradigm.”

I can't understand why Jobbik tolerates this kind of crap from Fidesz. Fidesz treats Jobbik like a red headed step child and the predominate impression is that Fidesz has no respect for Jobbik and is politically dismissive of them. It's common knowledge that Fidesz shares many of the same ideological beliefs that Jobbik does so why does Jobbik let Fidesz get away with this kind of disrespect? Better figure it out because Fidesz marginalizes you every chance they get like this one.

""The entire Hungarian political establishment was responsible for the Holocaust"

So now the hungarian government of the Horthy era is responsible for the Holocaust?? What a joke!

Fellegi is a traitor to his own nation, nothing else! Sitting there in front of a political commity of a foreign country, like the socialists in the past who went to the USSR.

All his bla bla is nothing more the political correct lying!

Fellegi is a Jew and a former communist, what did you expect?

Mafia State The US is the Don Corleone of International Politics

By Adrian Salbuchi

The US corporate over-world has always worked closely with the CIA, the State Department and the Pentagon promoting the overthrow – known as “regime change in rogue states” – of governments that do not automatically align to US interests; or, better said, of governments that do not automatically align with the interests of the supra-national global power elite that is deeply embedded inside private and public power structures in the US.

The Politics of Imagined Opinion

www.globalresearch.ca/the-politics-of-imagined-opinion-2/

...political elites have for close to a century carefully crafted and presided over a political universe of smoke and mirrors for their subjects; one where citizens think and act as if they have political choices and agency, thereby perpetuating the myth of democratic participation and enfranchisement...
As World War One concluded, Lippmann played a central role in recruiting intellectual talent for “the Inquiry,” a group of several dozen analysts set up by the Wilson administration and powerful Wall Street bankers and oil barons to ostensibly establish plans for a peace settlement, what eventually crystallized as Wilson’s Fourteen Points and a transnational system of governance called the League of Nations most Americans rejected. In reality, the Inquiry was a philosophical and functional precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency, gathering, analyzing, and producing recommendations on how the bankers and oil men should proceed with maintenance of their overseas assets in a vastly rearranged geopolitical environment.
In the years following the Inquiry’s dissolution Lippmann wrote his most well-known work, Public Opinion, where he lamented the US public’s rejection of an international government and expounded on how the thinking and behavior of modern individuals are largely determined through prejudice, or “stereotypes”, thus rendering citizens unfit for meaningful participation in public affairs. “For the most part we do not first see, and then define,” he famously wrote, “we define first and then see.” And, acknowledging the growing power and political implications of electronic mass media, Lippmann marveled at how “on the screen the whole process of observing, describing, reporting, and then imagining, has been accomplished for you.”
Along these lines Lippmann envisioned how political persuasions may be ready-made to develop a seeming relationship with political iconography and sloganeering where positions, sensibilities, and identification with an imagined community all take place through televisual displacement and atomization. With the media’s major control over representation and imagination comes the power to exclude undesirable political objects and ideas, thereby rendering them for all practical purposes out-of-mind.
The stereotypical dynamic and ideal endures in the binary oppositions...Far removed from the union hall, tavern, or country club where political opinions derived from lived interaction and experience, defining subjective opinion through imagined political adversaries with malevolent ulterior motives is now typically carried out in mass mediated form that provides one with their own sense of purpose and moral rectitude. It is also a perfectly suitable technique for a mechanized and streamlined journalism that has little time or resources for fathoming and assessing the nuanced complexity and broader possibilities inherent in all genuine political thinking...“The responsibility of the responsible media include maintaining an ideological ‘balance’ that treats the “Left” and the “Right” as polar opposites as well as moral and political equivalents.” Manufactured political opinion also become deeply ingrained in the public mind through shared cultural figures and artifacts...
Stereotypes and imagined positions are the exact opposite of what perceptive minds capable of discerning controversies and problems would expect and desire from political exchange. Above the din of clashing ideologies the very same forces Walter Lippmann moved with and spoke for remain, apart from and unimaginable in the prisonhouse of political opinion they helped design and construct.
