Hatred Has Home In Rumania

During a large part of the 20th century, the nation of Rumania was scene of horrible anti-semitism. Since the end of Communism in the country, Fascist groups  have once again raised their heads only this time the enemy is not Jews(although they still remain convenient scape goats) but the Roma minority. Zsolt Bayer, founder of the right wing bigoted ruling Fidesz party had to comment about people since he now is the Interior Minister. He described a New Year’s eve brawl and claimed that “a significant part of the Romas are unfit for co-existence. They are not fit to live among people. These Roma are animals and they behave like animals.”

In reality Bayer has written similar articles about Jews and gays and others who he deems to be less than human. Naturally, he claims his words were “distorted”-by the Romas, I assume. I find it interesting that he never has attacked Nazis who killed hundreds of thousands in his nation.
