Meanwhile, Greeks Are Celebrating...

Tyler Durden's picture





 

A short trip across the sea from the debacle occurring in Cyprus and it appears the tension is rising up in Greece once again. It is well known that Golden Dawn 'nazi' party won a surprising and disconcerting number of parliamentary seats at the last election, and the massively unstable size of Greece's youth unemployment continues to spell trouble; but, now Greece's most popular sport - soccer (football) - is infected by the increasingly nationalist fervor. As Fox reports, national soccer player Giorgos Katidis has been banned for life from playing for Greece after giving a Nazi salute while celebrating a goal this weekend. Cited as "a deep insult to all victims of Nazi brutality," the striker took to twitter (@GiwrgosKatidis) to proclaim his innocence of the meaning of the gesture (you decide in the image and clip below) - right arm extended and hand straightened - adding that he detests fascism. The question now is - when does the Cyprus soccer team play next? as it seems the peripheral European nations are starting to wake up to the Union's reality and the haircut is the next catalyst.

 

Accident? Ignorance? Or a simmering nationalist fervor?

 

His Twitter defense...

 

Full video of the incident...

I would think he was giving the nazi salute. Notice in the film clip how he was running and then when he got to the section of the crowd he wanted to be in front of he tried to stop running.

Anyone knows you don't run around when you try to salute. Ever see anyone running around giving a " regular army type" salute? No you alway stop and stand at attention. That was what he was trying to do before he was swarmed by his teammates. He was attempting to stop and give a proper military salute. He got the hand and arm motion all down pat.

The big question would be- who was in that section of the stadium crowd that he ran over to and attempted to salute? Was it the golden dawn party member season ticket section? Was it his 1st grade teacher? Was it his mom?

How true.

Barely a week and they've already started to smear him.

He was known as 'The Leader of the Opposition' to the Peronist Kirchners in Argentina, something that's got to frighten the Commies of the world more than a little given John Paul II 's resounding successes.

I don't like to make predictions, but here goes anyway.

The Catholic Church is going to make biggest comeback imaginable as this debt crisis unfolds.

For example in Italy as the government has reneged on it's promises and people go hungry in the streets, it was the Catholic Church that stepped in and started providing aid immediately.

In my experience it takes organization, capital, and authority to pick up the slack when a complex system goes down and I can only think of one true rival to the European governments in this regard.

As David Bowie would say, they just caught him midway through the movement of making a hand wave gesture. On a more serious note Hayek's Road to Serfdom has been in the back of my mind these days and I've often wondered what would happen if indeed Hayek was right and the Nazi's were just ahead of the curve in regards to the end game of soul-crushing bureaucracy. Conflict in Europe was rather momentous with just one group of Nazi's, what if there were simultaneous revolutions throughout all of Europe resulting in new revolutionary, militaristic ( due to the conflict required for them to gain power ), totalitarian states. Something tells me these new entities would not necessarily get along.

His career and ability to make a living by playing for a club team have not ended. That is as it should be. His employment is governed by an employment contract between himself and his club. An employment contract that will be upheld by Greek and European Union employment laws.

The career that ended and should be ended by the Greek people, is his ability to represent them in International competitions, while playing for the combined "Greek" team. To represent your country is a privilage granted to only a few. The rest of us have a right to expect decent behaviour while you represent us. If you dont understand this, you understand nothing.

You know that "national" teams don't represent countries, they represent whatever sports federation clubs are affiliated to (and that those are private organizations, just like most central banks)? They're only "national teams" in the sense that when there were no foreign players yet they actually represented their national championships and clubs.

sports is about allegiance, about cheering for a side - it's a learned behaviour, it trains the mind in a way of thinking, hence their alignment with "nations" and funding by corporations.

for the record, I don't think he was giving a "nazi salute" - having lived in various euro-peon countries and experienced the fanaticism of soccer fans first hand, including the skinhead factions, if he was giving a nazi salute, that would have started from an arm across his chest, jerked into arm extended, fingers pointed.

when acknowledging or celebrating a goal, score, etc. the players often run to their fans in the stands and extended arms are a kind of "oooh yeah!!!!!  it's for YOU!!!" salute, an "I did this, we rock!!!"  team + fan bonding moment.

if he was "nazi" in europe, he'd have a #1 skin cut, not a trendy hair salon do. . .

Depends on what country and sport you're talking about - most around the world are still financed by their fee paying supporters. Sport (traditionally) is just a (salutary) social bonding past-time; showbiz turns it into what's called, for a reason, a distraction - it makes you lose grip with reality.

There's no such thing as a nazi salute, same way as there's no such thing as a nazi symbol - they usurped it all, none of it belongs to them or their "culture" - period.

He just greeted the troika representatives in the VIP section of the stadium. They wouldn't have understood that they were meant if he had just waved his hand like a normal person.

I tend to agree with you. The video makes it seem possible that it wasn't a nazi salute. I don't know anything about this guy. I'm assuming they have other evidence that he supports the nazis? Otherwise, the video alone doesn't seem like enough evidence.

If/when you touch anything that a jew can associate with hitler, your life as you knew it is over.  Talk to mel gibson about it.  Or James Sobran: Romanist (a jew by any other name) Buckley excoriated Sobran for uttering negative words about Israel.  Sobran and Buckley were friends till Sorbran wrote bad things about Israel, the 3rd rail in the west.     

Only Jews get "holocaust denial" laws wherein those who deny the party line get tossed into jail.  Only jews get to say with a straight face and not get laughed off the world's stage that god gave them some piece of land.

Show me god's signature on the title you god forsaken liars! 

BTW, the so-called "Star of David" is a normal pagan sign found on many grave sites of non-Judaics throughout history.  The star is about as exclusive to jews as the stink on their poop.

Who said he was making a political statement. If he gave an interview where he expressed his appreciation of Nazi ideology, that would make a political statement. In this case, he raised his hand in a gesture after scoring a goal, it resembled a Nazi gesture and cowardly media immediately politicized that. Kid deserved at least an explanation before being banned for life.

Judaics are the master race.  Only Judaics occupy some position of hierarchy in the west where stupid gentiles are on board with the ideology that God intends Jews to last forever. 

I wish the end of no particular race of people including jews.  But when, where and how is it that the world can tell God that no matter what this particular race of people does (jews) we command God to maintain his hierarchy of jews on earth?  Who the hell has any "right" to exist over any one else?  What kind of god forsaken nonsense is that? 

I asked that biggoted racist scum sucking Fred Barnes, "Who gives Israel the right to exist?"  He laughed in my face and said, "God."

Now I ask right here and right now: Does god give any claim to anyone else (other than jews) for life or land?  According to jews: No! 

"I will bless those who bless thee; I will curse those who curse thee."

99.9% of western churchianity interpret the above vs. to mean if you touch a jew god will kill you.  If you take away Israel from jews god will kill you.

Funny though: when God said this to Abraham, Jacob (God later changed his name to Israel) was not born.

The fact that the 100.000 euro deposit garantee wasnt respected is  the cornerstone of the story.

Apparently this is a guarantee fit for northern europeans, not darker skinned semi-europeans.

The moneylaundring thing is just Gebbelist propaganda, they should know, its part of their heritage.

Switzerland, Luxemburg,Lichtenstein, no problem there apparently, they speak German.

This is clearly no longer a union, it is cutting edge postmodern postcolonialism.

And it is primarily Nationalist. And Socialist. 

The Germans did it again... NationalSocialism must have a deep rooted appeal in that nation's psyche

What more pure form of racism exists other than Judaism?  "Even the best of the gentiles deserve only death."  And yet this ultra-racist ultra-bigotted ideology is always untouchable.  All the world's human beings except the .0000001% (15m) deserve only death?  Really? 

But, so says The Talmud, Judaics do not deserve death because they have the DNA of some dude named Abraham?  Are you kidding me? 

And beyond all that, their actual DNA is from NW Turkey!  So says the Judaic PhD. Koestler (KEST-ler) in his landmark free online book The Thirteenth Tribe.  So according to their own philosophy, Judaics themselves deserve only death!  

Till some ZH member posts some race/group/ethnicity of people who teach and preach that everyone else deserves only death because of DNA...sorry, till then, Judaics win that prize of world's worst racists.

Judaism: The worship of the Judaic male as god.

No.  Scripture states Christ is God.  What happened to Christ?  Judaics killed him, that's whap happened (stated black and white 4x in Scripture).  They turned his face into hamburger meat.  Because Christ removed the racist element from Judaism.  The could not tolerate that, so they killed him. 

If you act like God, you emulate Christ.  But Judaics twist the Scriptures like the lawyers and hypocrites they are, into the belief that you must elevate Jews above others.   This is why so-called Christians love the glory of joining the military and fighting wars.  Because history and Scripture is interpreted by only Rabbis in the west.   

If you act like God, you get crucified like Peter did and all the Apostles except John the beloved. 

By supporting Israel, you support the racist, murdering philosophy of the Rabbis who murdered Christ, the worst crime in man's history.

for the record, I don't support any gods, not one of 'em.

and all you're doing is quoting your version of a "god" - there are other "scriptures" that have their versions, which was my point.

many versions, all created to look like the individuals who will worship "Him" - coincidence? or intentional?
