I can’t believe this is happening in this day and age. So shocking: Thousands attend anti-Nazi rally in Hungary to protest lawmaker’s call to screen Jews
This past Sunday, there was a rally held in Budapest to protest a proposed measure from the government to start screening Jews for national security risks. I thought these anti-semitic thoughts are mostly gone, especially given the the country’s history during WWII.
Racism against the Roma is rampant in the country. Something that initially shocked me, but now doesn’t come as a surprise anymore. But this news definitely took me by surprise.
This news article made it to the front page of Reddit and you can read some of the comments in the thread here. Well worth the read I think.
