#Hungary: Alt-Right Promoters Find Sanctuary in #Budapest


I CARE - - News - Internet Centre Anti Racism Europe: 29/5/2017- Over the past few years Hungary has become a haven for expat, alt-right leaders, The Atlantic reports. According to journalist Carol Schaeffer, “aggrieved nationalists” from abroad have been attracted by the anti-liberal rhetoric of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s ruling Fidesz party and the far-right, anti-Semitic Jobbik party.

“This transformation has allowed a system of far-right culture leaders to flourish in Budapest. Coming from all over Europe and the United States, they have created a structured propaganda circuit, in the hopes of spreading their ideas far and wide,” Schaeffer writes. As a prime example, she points to Arktos Media, a leading, international rightwing publishing house, which is led by Daniel Friberg, a Swedish businessman with a history of backing far-right causes back home, as well as prison sentences for weapons offenses. American John B. Morgan moved to Budapest to serve as editor in chief of Arktos before leaving for Counter-Currents, which Schaeffer describes as a “white-nationalist publishing house and website” with one of its offices in the Hungarian capital. Friberg appears to have friendly relations with Jobbik and some of its leaders.
