The myth of the ‘stolen transition,’ the conspiracy between the post-socialist elite and the global markets to betray the original goals of democratization, became so important in Hungary that it was able to form not only Jobbik’s ideology, but governmental politics as well over the following few years. In this analysis we try to explain how Fidesz was able to utilize Jobbik and some of that party’s ideological cornerstones in order to provide a master narrative that helped them to ‘transform the transformation’ – to modify the legal and institutional system in a way that is openly benefiting Fidesz. Jobbik played the role of the ‘scout’ in this process by tracking a pathway for Fidesz, which was then able to utilize Jobbik’s political goals and ideology in a softer form to establish Orbán’s goal of a ‘second transition.’
