Leader of Anti-Semitic Party in Hungary Found Out He's Actually Jewish

Oh, the irony. The leader of a far-right anti-semitic political party in Hungary, who was notorious for his incendiary comments against Jews, discovered that he's actually Jewish himself:

... Csanad Szegedi had in the past railed about the "Jewishness" of the political class. According to the ADL, his party's presidential candidate referred to Israeli Jews as "lice-infested, dirty murderers."

For Szegedi all of this came to a screeching halt, when in 2010 a prisoner confronted him with evidence that he had Jewish roots. According to the AP, Szegedi tried to bribe the prisoner to keep him quiet, but rumors and innuendo reached a fever pitch by late last year and in June, Szegedi conceded that his mother was a Jew. According to Jewish law, that makes Szegedi Jewish, too.

Not only that, but Szegedi's grandmother survived Auschwitz and his grandfather survived labor camps.

Technically, that means he's of Jewish ancestry. Clearly, *he* is not Jewish.
[That said, if his antisemitism is so warped that he believes that people with Jewish ancestry are bad, then hahaha.]
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
