Police initiate probe into leftist marchers wearing red star

Pécs police have ordered an investigation after several people wore the red star on their clothes at the May 1 march organised by the Hungarian Workers Party 2006 and the Green Left Wing.

Baranya county police said the investigation was launched into a possible public denial of the crimes of Hungary’s fascist and Communist regimes.

    OK and the Budapest Police stood equally idle by while the “Jobbik” was displaying their latest variant of Magyar Garda on Saturday May 4th, something that Whorban claimed is banned the day after

    Video to prove it:

      The main job of the police is to preserve public order, and arresting people wearing red stars or rightist uniforms at the time could have caused nasty scenes.

        True that the Police always should act with proportionality and if the Police have the names already and the actions on tape, then it is just some paperwork to push over to the appropriate Prosecutor

        For some reason I do not think this will happen, then Magyar Garda has always been tolerated by Hungarian Police and Prosecutors, unlike a few Munkaspart-members running around with a red Heineken star

      “Police stood idle by while the “Jobbik” was displaying Magyar Garda”.

      So? Jobbik is a legitimate Hungarian party, and it’s actually pro-Hungarian.
      The WJC is a foreign anti-Hungarian pressure group, with far too many privileges.
      A peaceful demonstration by Jobbik does not warrant any police actions.

        “A peaceful demonstration by Jobbik does not warrant any police actions”

        Well, there was no violence from these “several people wore the red star on their clothes at the May 1 march organised by the Hungarian Workers Party 2006 and the Green Left Wing”, so as you say, there was no reason for the Police to make any actions, right?

        Or should there be different standards if the Party involved is “a legitimate Hungarian party, and it’s actually pro-Hungarian”?
        Maybe you have seen that film on ‘Lady Justice Being Blind’?
        Does not give you a hint…?

    Welcome to the police state of Orban’s Hungary.
    Who the hell cares about stupid old symbols, and why is it any of the police’s business? If some people feel nostalgic about the Kadar regime, maybe it’s because the past 20+ years turned out to be a huge disappointment. Can’t blame them.

    And here is another video, where Budapest Police stand with their arms folded, as neo-nazis commit Hate Speech and beat up one journalist

    This happened 1 year ago and “We met up with him six months later. He is still waiting for any charges to be brought, after having filed two complaints against his attackers, and the police.

    “I looked over our videos of the past years, when they are shouting for example anti-semitic or anti-gypsy words. In the past it was a bit more covered. But now it’s really direct. It shows maybe it’s more “OK” now to speak directly and to speak with hate,” says Barna Szasz”

    In the 60’s anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to open their borders to non-white immigrants. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face penalties for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are counting down the days until ALL and ONLY white children become minorities and eventually extinct EVERYWHERE. It’s Genocide. “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white.
