President Donald Trump’s deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka refused to admit last Monday that the president made a huge mistake in the statement he made on Holocaust Remembrance Day, when he neglected to mention Jews.
When asked by conservative talk show host Michael Medved if the White House’s statement about Holocaust Remembrance Day was “questionable in being the first such statement in many years that didn’t recognize that Jewish extermination was the chief goal of the Holocaust,” Gorka told him:
‘No, I’m not going to admit it. Because it’s asinine. It’s absurd. You’re making a statement about the Holocaust. Of course it’s about the Holocaust because that’s what the statement’s about. It’s only reasonable to twist it if your objective is to attack the president.’
Well, this same guy is now walking around sporting a medal that is linked to Hungarian Nazi associates who, according to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, took orders from the Nazis and helped in the mass murder of thousands of Jews. The Trump Administration should be ashamed of themselves.
LobeLog’s Eli Clifton noted on Sunday that Trump’s adviser was wearing the medal in several different photographs from Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration, and has since found more.

Why Is Trump Adviser Wearing Medal of Nazi Collaborators?

Here’s a closer look at the medal Gorka is seen wearing in the photo:
Yale University’s Former Eastern European History professor Eva Balogh, who is also the founder of the news blog Hungarian Spectrum, confirmed the identity of the medal Gorka is shown in multiple photos wearing. Balogh said in part:
‘Yes, the medal is of the “vitézi rend” established by Miklós Horthy in 1920. He, as a mere governor didn’t have the privilege to ennoble his subjects as the king could do before in 1918, and therefore the “knightly order” he established was a kind of compensation for him. Officers and even enlisted men of exceptional valor could become knights. Between 1920 and 1944 there were such knights. The title was inheritable by the oldest son. I found information that makes it clear that Gorka’s father, Pál Gorka, used the title…
‘Many supporters of the Horthy regime were enamored by the Nazis and Hitler and the “knights” were especially so. Put it that way, after 1948 one wouldn’t have bragged about his father being a ‘vitéz.’ Lately, however, especially since 2010, it has become fashionable again to boast about such “illustrious” ancestors.’
This certainly says a lot about why Gorka chose not to comment over the Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, doesn’t it? He comes from a long line of Nazis, which is why he could care less.
