Momentum politician called a „filthy Jew“ in Hungary

Dániel Berg, deputy mayor of District II in Budapest, was called a „filthy Jew” on the street, which he reported on his social media page.

„A good start to the week: on my way to work, a young man approaches me on the street and hisses „You filthy Jews.”

Dániel Berg explained that this was not the first time he received antisemitic insults. In fact, recently, a colleague and friend of his, David Bedő, received death threats accompanied by antisemitic remarks.

„We must never accept this. Here in Buda, we will continue to proclaim zero tolerance against all forms of incitement to hatred and exclusion, and we will take all possible steps against the perpetrators,” writes Berg in his post, also calling into action all private citizens, highlighting the importance of standing up for fellow human beings in our everyday lives when we witness such behaviour.
