Jobbik spokesman resigns after photos reveal his tolerance for alternative lifestyles

andras-kiraly-jobbik-parade.jpg

The Hungarian news is abuzz following the revelation that Jobbik spokesman András Király (center), who presented himself as a traditional minded religious individual, enjoyed having an occasional toke and had no qualms about attending a gay pride parade in Canada, the Képviselő Funky blog revealed. When the blog contacted Király, he admitted attending the parade but said it was a research trip, adding that he’s not gay, and during the course of the conversation admitted to smoking marijuana (pictures of all the fun can be seen here).

Király told the blog he would send an official response to their discoveries later, but the only communication from him since is an announcement that he is resigning his post within Jobbik. If his party turns out not to be so tolerant toward his tolerance, at least Hungary’s youth will still be accepting of him.

    I know. This has to be THE story of the election campaign. And I haven’t laughed so much all month. Even if this story does scream “tégla.”
    Nevertheless. He has resigned with immediate effect. As has anyone who has ever worked or represented Jobbik, and then been even suspected of any negligence, criminality or hypocrisy.
    (And where’s my hat-tip? I clearly commented here on this story first!)

    Bob, if we’d come across the story from you, there would be a hat tip, but we came across it via the blog post mentioned in the article about an hour before you left your comment.

  • ribizlix

    he looks like he has a lot more fun doing his research than I ever do!

    @ all
    In defense of Kiraly:
    Attending the gay pride parade in Toronto is considered fun. The Mayor attends, the Chief of Police attends and people take their kids to the Parade because it’s considered fun.
    The only political statement it makes is that we are not concerned about people’s sexual orientation. Our Provincial Health Minister married his same-sex partner and we wished him well. He resigned in order to run for Mayor of Toronto in the next municipal election.
    The only reason I haven’t been is my discomfort in crowds.
    From what I hear, smoking a joint is part of the
    culture and the police look the other way.
    Just why exactly should he resign from JOBBIK and why does he have to justify his attendance at the parade? (NO need to answer, it’s a rhetorial question)

    You see, this is one of the reasons I’m interested in Hungarian politics. By comparison, Australian politics is just so boring.

  • Pete H.

    I thought Jobbik was the party of traditional Hungarian values.

  • Ricsi

    PeteH@It is,thats why he knew he had to resign.

  • http://www.allhungary.hu Erik

    Maybe he just thought getting wasted and dressing up in drag *are* traditional Hungarian values. So hard to keep track of these things…

  • wolfi

    Could there be ANY story on Hungarian politics where bj does not include some remark on Jews ?
    I really wonder, can someone please call a shrink for him ?

  • Pete H.

    And prize for the first to Jew bash on thread as usual goes to the talented BJ!

  • http://www.allhungary.hu Erik

    Maybe BJ just thought pointless, self-defeating Jew-baiting is a traditional Hungarian value. Oh, wait…

  • lol

    BJ did Jews rape your mother and wife or what?

  • olga

    @ Wolfi
    I can think of dozens of non-Jews worse than Polanski
    One Example:

    Briere pleads guilty to Holly Jones’s murder
    The man who pleaded guilty to murdering 10-year-old Holly Jones at a Toronto court Thursday morning fulfilled his “dark secret” when he abducted, sexually assaulted, and dismembered her shortly after viewing and becoming aroused by child pornography.
    Michael Briere, a software developer who lived only blocks away from Holly’s home in the west end of the city, received an automatic life sentence and won’t be eligible for parole for 25 years.”

    This little lot as really made my day.
    Faggots with grey beards and candy floss hair-dos
    and not in Hungary, but Canada, with the Jobbik spokesman wedged between the woofters at Gaypride
    celebration day.
    Smoking jazz tobacco as well. I thought I had been too when I first saw the photo.
    Hungarians are a rare breed. In fact, from another planet,is the common belief.
    Elections just around the corner and the erstwhile
    idiot has probably lost Jobbik about a dozen seats or more.
    Had to laugh out loud at BJs remarks about Polanski
    in trying to deflect the barrage of derision and amusement re:Jobbik’s spokesman.

    Could anyone please try to translate bj’s rantings into something that at least sounds like English – or maybe better not (I’ve had those wonderful Hortobágy palacsinta again, don’t want to throw up …)

    I have been looking where to publish this video because the guy doing the lip-sync is hilarious
    and I would actually pay money for any one doing a similar thing on our local guy (aka Vona)
    It is a Swedish song on Gays and fits today’s news perfectly
    In my bad translation the text
    I want ASS (Refrain)
    If you want a chance on me, you cannot smell good, be pissed-off and pretty or a girl, NO
    You should have heavy beard, heary cheast and an ass big as barn-wall, WALL
    I turn on men who have a big and (something) nose, elderly men who live home with their Mother
    If I am going to marry, it will be with a single man who is GAY
    (Something about old mens asses), truckdrivers who never say NO
    I turn on men who looks like Zeb Macahan, and hate men that live with their Father

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htP5KsLL28o

    Compare this video with our local guy (aka Vona) and the pictures of him with the 2 Guards-men in black outfit
    Some one must do the ultimate contribution…

    Even kuruc-info has a field-day with these Jobbik-clowns
    That is probably the real reason why the poor guy needed to resign, Kuruc is running the show, not the Jobbik leadership
    Compare the the recent showdown about Budahazy being refused to run for Parliament under the Jobbik-flag
    Harshly criticised by Kuruc and very embarrassing for Jobbik

    Or is this another one of your Muslims aren’t Islamic, the Árpád flag is Nazi, the European Commission is elected, strokes of genius?
    bobscountrybunker at March 18, 2010 10:12 PM

    Sorry to disappoint you, only 2 out of 3 correct:
    * Muslims aren’t Islamic
    True, they believe in ‘Islam’, but being ‘Islamic’ is more a political thing which 90-99% of active Muslims in Europe do not agree with
    .
    * the Árpád flag is Nazi
    Never claimed that, only that some Neo-Nazis use it
    .
    * the European Commission is elected
    True, by the representatives elected by the people
    Similar to how the Hungarian President is ‘elected’ by the Hungarian Parliament
    Do not forget that the EP (European Parliament) approves of the EC (European Commission) so in that sense it is elected in the same way as most National Governments are elected

    No, this guy was the latest, but not the last to come out of Gábor Zázrivecz’s (aka Vona) big closet
    Gábor will probably be the last to come out, being the host and all, but in the end he will
    Did I tell you that Gábor been in my home?
    Some years ago, sitting in my armchair, drinking my alcohol
    So, who should know?
    Me or you?

    One of my gay jewish commie neo liberal friends just asked me for that Kiraly Andras’s phone number – please jobos help me!

  • bobscountrybunker

    @Viking
    Yep. That’s all lovely. And it’s really nice reading you deny your own lunacy. For about the millionth time.
    But again.
    What show exactly, are kuruc “running.”
    These are the words YOU used. Please explain.
    And if the ARE running the “show” how come Budaházy isn’t standing on the Jobbik ticket smartass?
    Now all you have to do is imagine that a 40 message exchange takes place between the two of us, lasting all night, in which you continue to dodge and evade and not answer the question. And then finally, reluctantly, admit you are full of shit like you always do.
    But then say that it isn’t really important at all, and you never really said that anyway.
    Why don’t you do that?
    So? What show are kuruc running, genius?

  • Pete H.

    Bobby Bobby Bobby – maybe it’s because the Buda man was arrested on charges of attempted murder and terrorist activity.
    I don’t think Kurac is so much running the show, as it is a mouthpiece for the deeper and darker philosophy of the Jobbik and overall Hungarian far-right movement (Nemzeti Őrsereg, Betyársereg, Magyar Nemzeti Bizottság, Hatvannégy Vármegye Ifjúsági Mozgalom, Tamás Polgár, Gábor Vona, György Budaházy, László Toroczkai, György Gyula Zagyva, etc.).
    Jobbik put out a sanitized platform (and unworkable) to feign some sort of conservative moderation, but dig down and you’ll find associations and ideas that unite them in their common hatred, bigotry, homophobia, and antisemitism.

  • bobscountrybunker

    @Pete H.
    A calm and resoned explanation. Admittedly to a question I didn’t ask of you. But nevertheless. Straightforward. No bullshit. Excellent.
    But this is not what Viking said. He said they were “running the show.”
    He said, read it for yourself:
    http://www.politics.hu/20100318/jobbik-spokesman-resigns-after-photos-reveal-his-tolerance-for-alternative-lifestyles#c24

    Viking at March 18, 2010 9:59 PM”

    that kuruc were in charge, they were running the whole “show.”
    Not the Jobbik leadership.
    To the extent that they have the power to demand the ejection of the party’s spokesman.
    This is what he does, invent total and utter grade-a horseshit, and then either pretend he didn’t say it, or didn’t mean it, or deny it. Or whatever. What he does, is project what he thinks, and says that this is “the truth”. And he really doesn’t like this madness pointed out to him.
    But you are right.
    Kuruc are not running squat. Never have.
    See how easy it can be Viking if you just cut out all the bull?

  • Pete H.

    Watch out Viking, it seems I may be playing on Bob’s team now. And I won’t take any of your Jobbik hating szar.
    So cut out the bull and join forces with me and Bob. Together we will all rule Carpathian Basin – braaahaaahaaahhaaa! And keep Hungarian airspace safe from raiding Israeli drones.

  • bobscountrybunker

    @Perte H.
    I’ve told you before that sarcasm is no subsitute for answering the question. I’m sure it keeps you amused, but they still linger unanswered. And your silence is much more eloquent than your “wit”.
    Have you come up with a plausible alternative?
    Or a time when Israel has let the Hungarian military fly over its airspace?

  • bobscountrybunker

    Sorry didn’t mean to misspell your name.
    Just wanted to say, feel free, given your civilian support staff military air base experience, to add your own thoughts on Viking’s contention that entering someone’s airspace isn’t “technically” entering their country.

  • Pete H.

    If you think you are winning an argument because no one can definitely answer an irrelevant question, you are worse off then I ever suspected.
    Since you are so curious why don’t you phone or email this Hungarian military leader who is stationed in Tel Aviv:
    Colonel László Józsa
    Defense, Military and Air Attaché
    Tel/Fax: 03 546-17 51
    E-mail: daohungarytelaviv@hm.gov.hu
    He should be able to help you with your gnawing obsession.
    Go ahead don’t be shy. A lot of us anxiously await news of your conversation with the Colonel.

    “If you think you are winning an argument because no one can definitely answer an irrelevant question, you are worse off then I ever suspected.”
    Pete H. at March 18, 2010 11:44 PM
    —-
    I am not winning the argument because of your inability to answer the question.
    I have won it because of your unwillingness to.
    Why?
    Because these same, simple questions are clearly being asked by Bajnai himself. A Jew, a friend of Israel, and Jobbik’s most enthusiatic opponent.
    He can ask these questions.
    But when we do, your dodging of them, and the perpetual dodging of them by the others here is unequivocal. He can ask them. But we can’t.
    Hungarians can’t. Because if we do that makes us crazed nationalist anti-semitic Trianon-obsessed cowardly diaper-needing jobbo Nazis…
    It is not my intransigence that has won the argument, but your hypocrisy that has lost it.
    Night night.

  • bobscountrybunker

    Well, that is to say, gentile Hungarians can’t.
    I’m not sure about Muslim ones, maybe our resident Islamic scholar Abu-ben Loony Al-Viking can clue us in.

    bobscountrybunker at March 18, 2010 10:42 PM

    I chose to sleep this night, but why do you not reference to that post where I “finally, reluctantly, admit you are full of shit like you always do”?
    You are a journalist, right?
    You do invent a lot of things, more and more lately

    PS! If you do not understand ‘running the show’, it means that the Jobbik leadership listens to what Kuruc-info says and the leadership saw how much they lost out on denying Budahazy that MP-seat
    The Press Officer of Jobbik even had to write an open letter to Kuruc-info (it was published there) where he had to explain how he personally always had been the best friend of Budahazy and ‘inside the community’ we should not criticize each other
    You do not see him publish a similar letter on Magyar Hirlap, as the latter definitely is not ‘running the Jobbik show’
    You are denying the role of the media?
    Kuruc-info has a lot of sway in Jobbik-circles

    bobscountrybunker at March 18, 2010 11:08 PM

    Any one can “demand the ejection of the party’s spokesman”
    The question is if Jobbik listens to anyone else *but* kuruc-info?
    Where does Jobbik’s Press Officer and writes open letters about “we in the right” and that he has always been Budahazy’s best friend, except on kuruc-info?
    Not in Magyar Hirlap…

  • komoly

    Must admit, sheer hypocrisy is always good for a chuckle,
    especially when drag queens are there for decoration. The
    toothless, uneducated, knuckle-scraping masses amongst which
    Jobbik trolls for votes must have had their heads explode trying to
    figure this one out. Priceless.

    Bokros bouncing off busty showgirls
