16/8 Oi vey, the Irony

BUDAPEST Hungary, President of Hungary's far right Jobbik party, Csanad Szegedi has been forced to resign after he discovered he has Jewish roots. Has was well known for his inflammatory rhetoric, with accusations that Jewish people were "buying up" the Hungary and railing about Jewishness.
His grandparents survived the victimisation of the Nazi Europe.

The irony of this situation is that it is so similar to Dave Chapelle's character Clayton Bigsby, who is presented as a blind white-supremacist African American. Oblivious to his own ethnicity, he gives a warmly welcomed speech to the KKK, until he removes his pointy hat, the audience is so shocked one guys head explodes. He finally accepts he is black and divorces his wife because she is a "Nigger lover".

There is a reason to not throw stones in a glass house -- you get covered in shards.

Now as a pariah Szegedi, is experiencing blow back. He part owned an internet site selling Hungarian nationalist merchandise, however his business partner who is also Jobbik's Executive Director is pulling out.

So well done Csanad, for demonstrating why hate is stupid, ill-considered and self defeating.

What do you think?
