Agreed on all counts and this really is scary.

Obdi. Is their anything we or I can do? There must be something we can do even though we are way over here in America to help them?

Amnesty International Hungary, and Reporters Without Borders are both good to support in reference to this. In terms of aid groups, it's really difficult because the Roma have such an insular culture and distrust (for good reason) outsiders, so there aren't many relief organizations that actually wind up helping them.

What's needed is governmental policy change in Europe, and at the EU. Writing to your congresspeople to get it brought up is worthwhile. So is writing to Obama.

Oh boy. This is not getting better.

Every single goddam party that campaigns on "law and order" and "family values" is anything but. The rule of law was permanently damaged last year when the Hungarian government instituted a new constitution.

Here's a Krugman column, where he goes down the list of changes, including censorship, the removal of judicial oversights, and the weakening of independent human rights agencies.

Reports of attacks on the Roma have also been filtering out of Italy.

Watching the resurgence of fascism in Europe is nightmarish.

Pretty much, what the GOP is trying to do here.

When people are allowed to be awful they are, without fail.

What a fucking disgrace. The Roma have had a hard life. Now they have to deal with Nazis 2.0. As if the first time wasn't bad enough.

Europeans *never* act in the face of genocide or the threat of it.

Europe stood by for the Holocaust.

Europe stood by for the slaughter in Bosnia and Serbia.

Europe stood by for Darfur. They went so far as to be certain that the conflict there was never recognized as a genocide in the U.N. because then they would have to have acted by treaty.

Europe will watch this.

Then some time after it explodes, Europe will whine about aggressive Americans in the same breath they whine that they should have done something if they notice at all.

I am sick to death of Europeans.

OMG bigel has killed Ludwig and taken over his LGF identity!

OMG bigel has killed Ludwig and taken over his LGF identity!

Not at all. Ludwig is just telling it like it is. Confronting a thousand murderous fanatics takes courage, and the local authorities lacked it. As he's said previously, in a case like this you have to fight, even if you know you're going to lose. Because every minute the police could have bought would have been another minute for civilians to get to safety.

Instead sadly, I think far too many in Europe are content to allow the Neo-Nazis to slaughter the Roma, as long as they don't really have to see the butchery. Some will even be glad that the people they don't like are being "disposed of". Sick.
