The National Policy Institute's "European Congress" is now facing a state ban and a supposed protest from the usual suspects.  However, much of the coverage in the Hungarian media is focusing on NPI's supposed ties to Jobbik, a "far-right" party which initially sponsored the conference but has since distanced itself.  As with most things of this kind, it's domestic politics and short term political advantage that is determining the response of the political players rather than any grand ideological dispute.

Despite the supposed ban, NPI's lead organizer Richard Spencer has been able to move about the city without too much trouble.
