Mainstreaming News, 4/11/15

Illogical Magyars.


So, the far-Right Jobbik is becoming more popular than the moderate-Right Orban. Jobbik must be doing something right (no pun intended), correct?  Stay the course and challenge from the high ground of Hungarian ethnic interests, correct?

Well, apprarently not. It seems that the new fad in Europe among the "far-Right" is to emulate "I don't like my daddy" Marine's mainstreaming shtick.  So, despite surging in popularity compared to the mediocre Orban, Jobbik's plan is to become as similar to Orban as possible.  Remember, reinforce failure, not success!  If hardcore nationalism proves more popular than its softcore imitation, then the hardcores should ignore all of that and move toward the softcore center.  And then we wonder why nationalists have suffered from decades of unremitting failure.
