In stark contrast to the Lefts timidity in the face of actual authoritarian regimes such as China and Russia, the liberal medias treatment of Hungary has aggressively crossed the line. Paul Krugman of the New York Times sounded the alarm after Hungarys conservative Fidesz-KDNP alliance won 68 percent of the seats in Parliament in the 2010 elections. He foresaw a post-Soviet re-establishment of authoritarian rule in Hungary. The British Guardian fell into line, describing Hungarys new prime minister, Viktor Orbán, as an autocratic leader. The Washington Post, not to be outdone, compared Hungary to Belarus and Putins Russia. Not long after, and with great satisfaction, Hungarian émigré professor Charles Gati announced in an op-ed in the Times that Hungary is no longer a Western-style democracy. Having been drummed out of the West by left-wing editorialists, Hungary became fair game for the next phase of the liberal crusade: U.S. intervention.

Stupidity should be painful . . .in this case, it just may prove to be excruciating.
