The poster-campaign recently launched by the government is clumsy, stupid, nowhere-leading response to a real problem. Moreover, it both lacks the rules of common sense and the basic human contact, Csaba Lukacs wrote on mandiner.hu.
The author compares it to the transcriptions of the Austrian shops in the 80s: “Hungarian, don’t steal!”. People were rightly appalled by the harsh generalization, even if some of our fellow citizens deserved the special attention.
The poster-campaign recently launched by the government is clumsy, stupid, nowhere-leading response to a real problem. Moreover, it both lacks the rules of common sense and the basic human contact. It addresses the people, who don’t speak Hungarian, in Hungarian. It would be better to make a multilingual brochure – by less money – on what kind of legal, ethical, behavioral expectations there are. Instead of it, they organized a hate-campaign against those who don’t want to stay here, so they wouldn’t even take the Hungarians’ jobs, if they could. The campaign doesn’t speak about that a person outside the EU can’t work without a work permit, which is virtually impossible for a refugee.
According to the author, something should have been done months ago, when ten thousands of refugees came to the Hungarian borders. Instead of strengthening the surveillance of the southern borders, having a strategy for the modern exodus to stop, preparing the public for this phenomenon, they did an unacceptable questionnaire for HUF 1 billion and a poster-campaign for HUF 300 million.
It seems they managed to forge a lot of people against the government again, just like with the Internet tax. 1 million forint is donated every hour for the counter posters of the Two Tails Dog Party (a joke party). The government makes huge mistakes sometimes, and the opposition uses these – it is also meaningful that they don’t have sensible thoughts on the managing of the immigration issue, they’re just painting the posters, Lukacs said.
