While the largest German paper Bild took a sympathetic tone toward refugees back in 2015, that has since changed. On 29 October, they published a 50-point anti-migration manifesto in which they proclaim, among other things, that ‘anyone who considers our constitution and our legal system a collection of non-binding recommendations should leave Germany as soon as possible,’ and ‘anyone who wants to live here permanently must learn German’.
Antifa, a radical, violent left-wing movement that traces its origins back to the 1930s, has been responsible for a number of brutal attacks on conservatives, liberals and freethinkers both in the United States and in Europe. Until now, Hungary has been a mostly Antifa-free zone.
Ralf Schuler, former chief political correspondent for Bild talked to Hungarian Conservative about why he left the paper, what he has been doing since, and how the future of journalism might look like.
