Jobbik prepares to unveil a stature of Antisemitic hero Miklos Horthy.

The popular nationalist party in Hungary, Jobbik, unveiled a statue honoring wartime leader Miklos Horthy on Sunday, NBC News reports. Miklos Horthy took over the Hungarian government following the defeat of the mass-murdering Jewish communist Bela Kun in 1919.

This unveiling of the statue has sparked protests and mixed responses from both sides of the political spectrum.

Antal Rogan, the mayor of central Budapest and parliamentary leader of the ruling Fidesz party,  considers the act provocative and a way of giving the left an excuse to vilify the far-right and cry anti-Semitism.

He stated:

“As downtown mayor I consider the statue unveiling ceremony of Marton Gyongyosi a political provocation and I condemn it…”

“This provocative action will obviously give the western European left-wing press an excuse to cry anti-Semitism and paint a malicious picture of Hungary.”

Jews and leftists took to the streets to protest, wearing Jude stars in an attempt to invoke sympathy over the make-believe Jewish Holocaust, which they claim Horthy played a part in.

A 22-year-old student named Bence Kovacs said of Horthy:

“It is outrageous that the new fascists erect a statue to Horthy, who is responsible for the Nazi rule and the Holocaust in Hungary.”

A Jewish rabbi is unsurprisingly trying to use this event to pressure the Hungarian government into stricter “hate speech” laws, Reugters reports:

Slomo Koves, an orthodox rabbi in Budapest, said the government should be more forceful in implementing laws against hate speech and various forms of extremism.

“Obviously they cannot get involved in every city’s decision whether or not to put up a statue but on the general issue and motivating a healthy public discourse on the issue is their job in my view,” he said.

“If people are poor they are more open to extreme ideas.”

Jews took to the streets to weep and rent their hair.

A representative from Jobbik, Lorant Hegedus, had this to say in defense of the statue:

“To call Horthy a war criminal is unjust and historically wrong…”

“He was not treated as a war criminal in Nuremberg, so why treat him like one now?”

Pro-Horthy supporters allegedly stood on the opposite side of the square near the church where the statue was being erected and shouted racial and anti-Semitic slurs at the leftist protesters.
