Hungary: Jobbik official to live with [antisemitic] Roma to atone for racism

Recently the Jobbik party made a show of being anti-racism.

Via AP:
Hungary's far-right Jobbik party says it has ordered one of its politicians to spend three days with a Roma member of the party to atone for racist comments made in 2011 and 2013.

Jobbik president Gabor Vona said Monday he gave the order to Janos Kotel because of earlier comments on Facebook in which he said, for example, that he would buy weapons to kill Roma.

But as Magyar Info blog points out, the Roma in question is antisemitic himself.

In a Facebook post a few years ago he railed against the chief Chabad rabbi in the country, Slomó Köves, whom he named a Jewish parasite.
