“Purely Nazi language”: Orban's adviser resigned after “racial” scandal


A long-time supporter of the Hungarian prime minister believes that his speech would have been liked by “the most bloodthirsty race-haters.”


The scandal surrounding the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban over the words about the “mixing of European and non-European races” continues to gain momentum. After such statements, his long-term adviser Zsuzsa Hegedyush decided to resign and called Orban's words Nazi. This is reported by the Hungarian edition of HVG.

On July 26, Hegedüsz sent a letter to Orban saying she was leaving her post because his words about race mixing were “purely Nazi language.” She believes that “the most bloodthirsty race-haters” would have liked the speech of the Hungarian prime minister. Therefore, despite a 20-year friendship, she has to break off their relationship.

In turn, Viktor Orban wrote a response letter to his adviser, where he stated that she could not accuse him of racism.

< p>“You can't even seriously accuse me of racism after twenty years of working together. You know best that my government has a zero tolerance policy towards anti-Semitism and racism in Hungary,” he said.

After that, Zsuzsa Hegedyush wrote a second letter to the head of the Hungarian government, where she asked him to read her first appeal more carefully. She stated that she believes that anti-Semitism is far from Orban, but at the same time she does not understand who and why wrote such a speech to him.
