'Not much reporting of this in the MSM'.

Jesus fucking Christ these people are stupid.
These are the people who have to be told what to do every single day of their lives.
Every attempt to "think for themselves" leads to destination fucked.

Many of them have some appreciation of their limitations, and gravitate toward authoritarian organisations which will help their self-management.
Back in the good old days of the '50s this meant Secondary Modern School, National Service and then a job in the factory.
If you wonder about the nostalgia for the '50s this is part of it.

Second place was the Neo-Nazi party Jobbik with 20% which was even higher among the youth vote. This is really grim the election's sole focus was on about not taking a refugee quota which would relieve Greece and Italy's growing burden.

“Voters had a wide range of political options, but intimidating and xenophobic rhetoric, media bias, and opaque campaign financing constricted the space for genuine political debate,” said Douglas Wake, the head of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, or O.S.C.E., mission in Hungary.

“The ubiquitous overlap between government information and ruling coalition campaigns, and other abuses of administrative resources blurred the line between state and party,” he said.

The blurring of the line was visible on thousands of bus stops, billboards and telephone booths where the government plastered posters warning of the dangers of immigrants. They were paid for by the government as part of what it said was a public information education campaign. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/09/worl ... idesz.html
