Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I see very little difference between declaring someone 'extremist' and keeping them from obtaining work, or just slurring them 'commies' and doing the same.

Well I certainly don't want committed Nazis as history teachers: that would be a legitimate case for of "extremist". While the troubles started in Germany over the issue of where you draw the line, in Hungary, the people called "commies" can be to the right of Sigmar Gabriel. Furthermore, if it's a law, you can at least bring lawsuits, but what I described for my acquaintance [and there have been several cases like his in the news BTW] is an employer acting on information it received who knows where, something resembling the treatment of dissidents by Brezhnew-era Warshaw Pact countries rather than the Radikalenerlass.
