Hungarian news website, Azonnali, went to Turócszentmárton (Martin), the “most Slovak city” of Slovakia to talk with locals about what they think about Hungary and the Hungarians. An old lady said that all Slavs are open-hearted while Hungarians are not, they just want to get more and more money. A man added that George Soros is behind everything wrong that happens in Slovakia. More details below!
Azonnali could speak with a local Hungarian who said that, before, there were 26 members in the local “Hungarian club” but, at present, there remained only 8. He added that in Martin you can speak any languages, nobody cares, except for the Hungarian. For example, if he talks with his friend in Hungarian at a bus stop, everybody stares at them.
Martin is an interesting place in Slovakia because Slovaks regard the city the birthplace of Slovak nationalism. Thus, it is not surprising that, in 1918, leaders of the Slovaks proclaimed that they no longer would like to be part of the Kingdom of Hungary and instead they would like to join the forming Czechoslovakia here.
People Azonnali asked said that the destruction of the Kingdom of Hungary and the Austro-Hungarian Empire was good. A woman said that she can still count to 3 in Hungarian because her grandfather learned Hungarian and he taught her that. A man said that
Poles, Czechs, Slovaks and Hungarians should join together against George Soros.
He added that his nieces married Hungarian men, but that is not a bad thing, at all.
A woman said that Slovaks always lived in Martin and Hungarians just came in to conquer the land. However,
if Slovaks joined Russia, they could have expelled all Hungarians to somewhere in Turkey.

About what they think about Hungarians living in Slovakia, a man said that they have rights so they have nothing to complain about. Interestingly, even the Slovak prime minister, Igor Matovic, apologised for the injustices the Hungarians had to live through because they did not want to give up their mother tongue.
A woman said that he feels sorry that she does not speak Hungarian and she cannot understand what people say in the Southern parts of the country where Hungarians live in the majority. She added that
their grandparents knew Hungarian and German
but nobody taught her generation Hungarian in the schools.
The Hungarian man Azonnali could talk with said that his children do not speak Hungarian because they did not want to learn the language.
Another man said that Hungary regards all its citizens Hungarian while, in Slovakia, the state gives further rights to local Hungarians (that is simply not true since the Hungarian system gives extra rights to use one’s own language in education to all ethnic minorities living in the country – the editor). He also said that George Soros would like to use the “Hungarian” and the “Roma” card against the Slovak government and to
Another man said that he does not have any problems with the Hungarians, but he does not like that in Érsekújvár (Nové Zámky) more people speak Hungarian than Slovakian.
An old woman said that Slavs are all open-hearted, but Hungarians are not, they just want more and more money. She added that all minorities should adjust to the majority but
Hungarians are different. They are an aggressive nation.
