Today the Romanian president intentionally pronounced the name of its opposition party with Hungarian intonation and pronunciation. The message of his speech was that this opposition party sold Transylvania to the Hungarians (who are sometimes pictured in Romania as a minority that wants to conquer Transylvania). The reason why he spoke is that the lower house of Romanian parliament, which is lead by the opposition party, did not vote down on time a proposed new law giving regional autonomy to Hungarians (more precisely, Szeklers) of Transylvania, and hence the proposed law was automatically forwarded to the upper house.
As a Hungarian, I do not claim that I don't consider this as an anti-Hungarian statement. But I am really interested in whether similar actions have happened in other countries and with what kind of consequences.
Can this type of speech be considered as xenophobia, let alone hate speech?
