Eight years ago a Gypsy teenager, József Patai was stabbed very severely with a samurai sword on a bus in Budapest. The left-liberal media started crying about racism immediately. They wrote that “according to witnesses, a white man dressed in military uniform pierced through Patai”. Headlines yelled “Racist attack on Roma victim”. Politicians condemned the racist attack, dozens of articles were wailing about rising Fascism in Hungary. Left liberal groups demonstrated against racism. Miklós Tamás Gáspár, a former SZDSZ MP, shouted from the rooftops that “Hungary is a racist country and he doesn’t want to live in such a country”. BTW, he repeated that “as it’s well known, Hungary is a racist state” in a TV interview in 2011.
The police arrested the attacker a few days later . He turned out to be a Gypsy man known as Mortimer (Mihály Gyurcsa). This wasn’t much of a surprise to the Hungarian public though since it’s well known who wield samurai swords in the streets.
Now I read in the news that Bolton’s fourth most wanted one has been threatening people with a samurai sword.
In case somebody couldn’t recognize him, his name is József Patai and he can be seen in the very first picture, too.
