  1. Thank you for raising this issue. With the Euromaidan coup in Ukraine, thanks to Kerry, McCain, Nuland and others in similar US attitudes, we need to keep an eye on other places in and around the Crimea.

  2. Great show! it was great to hear from someone with the Jobbik party--I've heard a lot about them and definitely noticed the smear campaign against them. Thanks Joshua.

  4. Well done Joshua. I have some close friends in Hungary and they have been telling me about Jobbik and the problems with the Jewish lobby for a couple of years so I was delighted to see you'd done a show about it.

    Hungary has a tragic and sad history with it's Jewish minority, in 1919 they had a murderous phase where Jewish groups like the 'Lenin's Boys' tried to seize power and slaughtered a lot of innocent people. They were eventually defeated by the Royalists led by Admiral Horthy and invading Romanian troops. These Jews fled to the USSR only to be returned by Stalin in 1945 to form a new puppet government. This Jewish communist regime was so cruel, oppressive and corrupt that the Hungarian people rose up and overthrew them in 1956. In the West we were told that 1956 was an anti-communist uprising, it wasn't, it was an anti-Jewish one and the Hungarian people simply wanted rid of their Jewish overlords. They got that and communism in Hungary from 1957 to 1989 was not a harsh or oppressive regime at all, they had no state surveillance, they had freedom of speech, there was no oppressive secret police, quite different to the communist regimes of East Germany, Romania etc. Sadly, when communism fell in 1990, the Jews were able to buy their way back into power in many areas in a similar way to the rise of the oligarchs in Russia, so today, Hungary is a country where the Jewish minority dominates in the corridors of power and Jobbik exists to oppose them.
