Infinite Recursion

This headline is from Vice Premier Dusan Caplovic is too piquant to ignore:

“Protirómsky extrémizmus je importovaný od susedov”

Literal translation:

Anti-Roma extremism is
imported from neighbors

Metaphorical translation:

Foreigners are the cause of all of our problems
including our xenophobia.

Slovak national extremists apparently are keen to learn from their Hungarian counterparts.  Could this be the beginning of a new era of cross-national understanding.  The mind reels.
