Reader feedback: Hungary invites protests

Re: "Police investigate Hungarian flag burning video", TSS Online, August 9

"The Slovak government is categorically against all forms of racism, intolerance, xenophobia, aggressive nationalism and extremism."

Unless they are elected and you form a coalition of them. The Slovak Republic was founded by a clerical fascist leader so they can't be ALL bad. There is nothing wrong with being nationalist, you should just express it as pro-homeland rather than anti-others. It is not illegal to burn flags as far as I am aware, and in all honestly Hungary brings a lot of hatred on itself with its pathetically outdated expansionist attitude toward her neighbours. And that's not even taking into account their attempt(s?) to wipe the Slovak people out in the past. If they can be so upset by a burning bit of cloth, perhaps they should remember the burned villages, displaced people and other crimes they committed on their neighbours. Germany had to come to terms with her past, Hungary was never brought fully to account for her actions.
