Hungary: “The Peaceful Majority”

Pestcentric writes about Hungary's “peaceful majority”: “Although I think this whole “I’m the peaceful majority” postcard thing is a nice gesture, it’s empty. Firstly, because those against whom it is addressed obviously don’t care. Second, because the majority of the peaceful majority is an angry majority within the majority, (got that?). They’re mad they’ve been lied to, that they keep being lied to, and how this country now has a government that acts as if it has a mandate when the opposite is clearly the case.”
