Greek Neo-Nazis Not "Liked" By Facebook

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While Google's historic tagline of 'Don't Be Evil' has occasionally been questioned, it would seem Facebook has taken up the mantle (Chinese censorship style). As ekatherimini reports, the third most-supported political party in Greece - the neo-nazi Golden Dawn - has been blocked by Facebook in what the party calls "an act of censorship" and a "relentless attack against nationalist users" of the site. With over 10% of the Greek population currently polled as voting for this nationalist party, evidently Facebook did not 'like' the posting of various Nazi symbols. See no evil, do no evil, 'like' no evil; as it appears Zuckerberg and his California crew will have no evil on their servers (or any other popular political parties' insignia we presume). Raises lots of questions this one...

 

Via ekatherimini,

Greece’s neofascist Golden Dawn party on Monday slammed a decision by Facebook to block the accounts of several of its members and deputies, lashing out at what it said was an “act of censorship” and a “relentless attack against nationalist users.”

 

The California-based networking website allegedly blocked the profiles after deeming that they violated terms of use on violence and racism. It also deleted the web pages of Golden Dawn members and others who had posted Nazi symbols. The party, which has 18 seats in Parliament, has reportedly filed a complaint with Greece’s electronic crimes unit.

 

Meanwhile, Greece’s primary school teachers’ federation (DOE) on Monday condemned attempts by members of Golden Dawn to interfere with the commemoration of the October 28 anniversary – when Greeks celebrate the 1940 rejection of an Italian ultimatum – at a kindergarten and primary school on the Ionian island of Lefkada. Several children of Albanian descent allegedly drew the Albanian flag during a class on multiculturalism. The drawings went on display for the October 28 celebration.

 

The move irked several Greek parents, who notified Golden Dawn officials on the island. The latter accused the teacher of being unpatriotic.

 

In a statement Monday, DOE defended the teacher, saying that “the Greek school has no space for self-styled guardians of all that is sacred and holy in this nation.”

 

Recent reports have suggested that members of Golden Dawn aim to interfere with upcoming school commemorations of the 1973 Athens Polytechnic student uprising against the military dictatorship on November 17.

Unless these "private" companies are acting together as some sort of secret government.  Then I guess it would be "our house".

"Forgive my ignorance but what makes Golden Dawn neo-nazi? Are they self proclaimed as such or who has hung that description on them? When i think of neo-nazis, I think of skin heads wearing nazi tattos, with photos of Hitler on the wall. Or is it nazi to want your country back? I'm nor clear but I do wish our language had better definition. It seems we just call people we don't like names associated with past demons in the hopes it will cause others to hate them without really knowing who they are. Kind of like our recent election."

    Fascism ( /?fæ??z?m/) is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism.[1][2] Fascists seek to unify their nation based upon suprapersonal connections of ancestry and culture through a totalitarian state that seeks the mass mobilization of the national community through discipline, indoctrination, physical training and economic corporatism [3][4].[5][6]

    Good luck with the with the physical training and fiscal discipline part Greece!

    People wouldn't know what a NAZI is if it came up from behind and bit them in the ass.

    Golden Dawn is a Nationalist Constitution Party

    This article is about the Greek right-wing extremist group. For film of 1930, see Golden Dawn (film). For historical organization of the late 19th century, see Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

    Golden Dawn (Greek: ????? ????, Chrysi Avgi, Greek pronunciation: [xri?si av??i])[note 1] is a right-wing extremist[8] political organization in Greece. It is led by Nikolaos Michaloliakos and has grown exponentially since its inception to a widely known Greek political party with nationwide support.

    Scholars and media describe it as neo-Nazi[7][9] and fascist[10] although the group rejects these labels.

    The party ran a campaign during the Greek national elections of 2012 based on concerns for unemployment, austerity and the economy, as well as virulent anti-immigration rhetoric, which gained a large increase in support from the Greek electorate.[16] It received seven percent of the popular vote, enough for the party to enter the Hellenic Parliament for the first time with 21 seats.[17] Following a second election in June, this was reduced slightly to 18 seats.

    Update yourself here and beware the bias of the writers. Copy and past the links if they don't work.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Dawn_(Greece)

    The party states its logo is a traditional Greek meander, not a Nazi symbol.

    Meanders are common decorative elements in Greek and Roman art. In ancient Greece they appear in many architectural friezes, and in bands on the pottery of ancient Greece from the Geometric Period onwards. The design is common to the present-day in classicizing architecture.

    The common term for the design is the Greek Key. It was not only used on buildings for decorative purposes but also on furniture, porcelain and silver which in the antiques business is referred to as Classical, Neo-Classical, Grecian or Greco-Roman style prominent in the 1805 to 1830 period.

    Golden Dawn sounds super, super evil to me.  So who do you think they'll invade first Poland or France?

    My mistake, Golden Dawn are only neo-Nazis.  So they are super, super neo-evil.  Maybe they'll invade first neo-Poland (Silesia) or neo-France (Flanders)?

    Now that I've redefined my terms can we be neo-friends, fucktards?

    Greece has still has mandatory military service, as does Cyprus. Okay, it might be a bit like a boy scout camp for 18 year olds, but every Greek lad knows how to shoot and knows how to handle an armoured vehicle. 

    So, in a sense, they are half way there already. All they need to do is throw out their Hellenic "Weimer-style" elite, andthey will be invading Macedonia before we know it.

    If you are referring to FYROM there is no point in invading,  since those "Macedonians" are slavs (south slavs to be more exact) and barely distinguishable from Bulgarians (never mind the name of the country that alludes to the Bulgars, of turkish descent - 6th century AD although the current inhabitants are of slavic descent - 9th-10th century). If you are talking about Macedonia of old, they already control much of it (it is part of Greece in a large %). If they do want to stir some problems (to take peoples mind off economic hardship the targets are more likely Albania (due to high criminality from Albanians gangsters) or Turkey (unlikely due to both countries being NATO members and Turkey being able to kick their ass, anyhow).

    Here is the next big opportunity: Anti-social networking. I am planning a new company called FistBook. It allows you to 'enemy' people that you don't like. They get a message telling them that you don't like them and they are not permitted to view any of your pages.

    Really outstanding idea - I hope you will consider adding a feature - the current residential addresses of the banksters - so they cannot remain in hiding. Also consider adding their clubs, golf courses, and other meeting places, you know like addresses and pictures - residences, autos, boats, toys. And what the hell throw in a very visual set of photos of their friends and close accomplises. I think it should be a full time occupation to track them down and expose thier lifestyles. Who knows maybe someone will take more action against them than the gobernnt.

    Stop spreading the ZOG (Zionist Occupied Government) lie.  The Elite don't give a damn about Israel or the Jewish religion, all they care about is controlling or eliminating all of us.  The religion of the Elite is "Do what thou whilst"  because they are mislead by Luciifer that they are gods.

    This has to stop and we need to focus on the Luciferian Elite,or they're going to do us all in via WWIII, and then I guess this arguement wont matter.

    They are going to get you too Gold.  Maybe rethink what you are doing for them.  Maybe there is a better world without them.

    If you would take you head out of your ass for a minute and look around, you might realize that Jew hating fervor is like a false flag attack. It is what Tsar Nicholas did and Hitler and many Arab Dictators. It takes you mind off the perpetrators of crimes against you and aims to pass your hate on to some other group.
