A small amount of irony emerged when former Jobbik leader Csanad Szegedi recognized his Jewish heritage, and shifted his Nationalism toward the Jewish people:
Following the discovery of his family’s tragic history, the 34-year-old renounced all ties to the party and converted to Judaism.
Now he told Hebrew language newspaper Ma’ariv he is waiting to become an Israeli citizen so he contribute to the fight against anti-Semitism.
On the surface, according to the Modern Moron™ mindset, he has reversed his position. He went from “racism” to being a defender of Judaism.
But looking beneath the surface, as any competent member of society should be able to, he kept his principles intact: he is a Nationalist. When he learned that he was of a different people than he knew, he kept his Nationalism intact and put it to work for that other group.
Nationalism — unlike universalism — can transfer between groups. If we are all working toward Nationalism, we mean that each of our tribes exist entirely separate from the others, and therefore, that our only conflicts are territorial. The constant low-grade enmity of diversity vanishes.
Csanad Szegedi took his strong European Nationalist feelings and applied them toward Jewish Nationalism (Zionism) instead when he encountered new information about who he was. This is the type of honest and forthright belief that is possible under Nationalism, but not under democracy.
