It didn’t take very long for Hungary’s far right to turn the Canadian government’s giant billboards into a fascist meme.
Reacting to comments by Jason Kenney about the plummeting numbers of refugee claimants from Hungary, the infamous far-right Web site kuruc.info responded with a twisted version of the giant billboard placed by our ever so compassionate Conservative government in strategic locations in Hungary… namely, places with a high percentage of Roma population. The original billboards advised would be refugee claimants about the accelerated claims process. The version of kuruc.info is slightly different. It reads:
In the lower right, the official logo of Canada’s government is replaced by a map of “greater Hungary”.
I hope Messrs. Harper and Kenney are proud of the fodder they provided to these proud protectors of the Hungarian nation.
