The US and France, and the rest of Europe, have no right to demand that Hungary give up its culture and become a bureaucratic, socialist country. Hungary for Hungarians, not the EU! The real dictators are Hillary Clinton, Nicolas Sarkozy and the other radical globalist leftists.

You're wrong. One of Nicolas Sarkozy's was Hungarian. He loves Hungary and wants to see Hungary prosper.

Hungary was NEVER democratic, from maniacal chauvinism in 1848-1867 to belligerent provokers of World War I in 1914 to ultra right wing in the 1930s, outright Nazism in the 1940s, Stalinism in the 1950s to anti-Roma looting in 1990s-2000s.

A small minority of Hungarian (no more than 3-4%) had some democratic ideas, but they were NEVER allowed to express this, and that country was a cesspool of abuse and anti-democracy.

And what about you miserable pygmies in serbia?????

Just look at your recent history??? All the murder and ethnic cleansing in the 90's. As well you folks instigated WW1. All for greater Serbia. It's all gone and you are on your way to being nothing more than greater Belgrade.
