    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Goose-Stepping Hitler-ites Threaten Greece's Utopia

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In this case we really do hate to say we-told-you-so but our concerns over social unrest and the rise of extreme nationalism (here, here and here) in an austerity-focused and massively unemployed Europe appear to becoming ever more prescient. Just last week we saw extreme parties in France of all places receive high levels of votes and in a note today from BBC News, the leader of the Greek Socialist Pasok party, Mr. Creosote himself - Evangelos Venizelos, told a rally in Patras that voters should not allow neo-Nazis to "goose-step into Parliament with Hitler salutes".

The far-right 'Golden-Dawn' party appears likely to win a number of seats for the first time ever - gathering support as the anti-EU-bailouts party. Of course the Golden-Dawn'ers also want to tighten border controls (but in a different way than Spain we are sure) and expel immigrants among other things but with the two major parties (Pasok and New Democracy) look set to garner less than 50% of the seats between them - leaving the rest in a free-for-all among various more extreme left and right parties. We have long-argued (and recently confirmed by Soros in his lengthy discussion at INET) that the Euro-zone will end when the political compact becomes untenable - it seems we are drawing closer and closer to that dystopia - even if Mr. Venizelos throws his weight against these uprisings of democratically invoked last rites.

From ekatherimerini.com,

"Golden Dawn is an extreme phenomenon, I believe they are an example of fascism and we radically oppose them. It's an offense to our history and to parliament," he told Reuters, suggesting Greece could be experiencing its version of Germany's 'Weimar' years which led to the rise of the Nazi Party and Adolf Hitler.

 

Golden Dawn, which vows to expel both legal and illegal immigrants and meets under a flag of an ancient Greek symbol similar to the swastika, has won over many of Greece's poor by giving away clothes and food parcels.

 

It says it is simply a nationalist party and has attracted a large protest vote by attacking the bailout and what it calls German domination of Europe.

Carla Bruni preparing to divorce midget Sarzoky:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2137429/Shattered-Carla-Bruni-st...

Former Lybian oil minister who defected from Khadaffi's regime found dead floating on the Danube. Officials state he suffered a heart attack while swimming....fully clothed:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2137148/Dead-body-Shukri-Ghanem-...

The former Libyan oil minister who defected last year during the uprising against Colonel Gaddafi died by drowning, initial autopsy results show.

Shukri Ghanem, 69, who was the country's prime minister between 2003 and 2006, was discovered fully clothed floating in the river Danube in Austria on Sunday morning.

Police spokesman, Roland Hahslinger, said there was no indication of violence on Mr Ghanem's body and no indications to suggest he had committed suicide.

Mr Ghanem, who was working as a consultant for a Vienna-based company was last seen by his daughter on Saturday evening in their apartment, according to reports.

When she woke and found him missing she called police who told her his body had been found 20 metres from the shore of the Danube, close to their apartment.

the man's got a point.

I've seen lots of attractive women scouring the DM for famous

women in bikinis, having sagging tits and fat asses.

I think it makes the female reader feel better

That's when you become altruistic and offer her some phallus.

Alea iacta est. A sane individual could have said the same thing when globalization was being touted as the greatest thing since sliced bread. The social implications are yet to viewed under times of crisis. Let's just agree that even the most ardent optimist will be severely tested.

Yes, US citizenism is limited to your typical US president Obama. When Obama dies, so dies US citizenism.

True as true. A US citizen told it to me so it has to be true. US citizens can not be duplicitous, right?

US citizenism is way beyond Obama. Obama is just a representative sample of it, to the great despair of US citizens who would prefer US citizenism to be strictly reserved to Indo Europeans and not be tractable by negroes and the rest.

Indeed, that is what we are back at: seeing praising and condemning.

There is no praise. No condemnation. Only logical follow up.

How can globalization be bad in the eyes of US citizens as it was what produced the greatest nation of all, the mecca of US citizenism (which is the best thing ever), namely the US of A?

Rotating? But reporting about what is apparented to a multiple personality disorder does not rotation.

People were worried for decades how WWIII would begin. Most thought it would constitute a nuclear exchange. It probably won't. Turns out, we're going to end up with a replay of WWII but with more advanced weapons. At least we had a couple of generations who saw relative peace.

I missed out on that relative peace. We shouldn't have ended the draft. With no draft, rich white boys can have loads and loads of relative peace, 'cause they don't have to worry about gettin' shot at. The WWIII you envision also, by default, envisions that you and yours won't be involved too heavily, cause NSA and dear old Homeland Security will keep all the bad guys away from our shores...

"relative" in this case means 400+ "interventions" and "police actions" and 50+ "limited wars"

Right, and that's why I qualified it with "relative." It has been peaceful compared to the massive carnage of WWI and WWII. In other respects it has been quite bloody and expensive.

I think war is just nature's way of culling humans.

My wish is that the f^&*kers who start them are the first ones to be culled,

but that never happens.

When's the last time a leader was killed in battle? Chicken shits.

 

Actually, the next war will be nature's way of stopping the banksters. All debts

will get written off, in the national interest.

I cracked it, man. That's it. A war to end all banking.

Well, there are not enough jobs for the citizens of Greece so deporting "illegal immigrants" seems proper. Not so sure about the "legal immigrants". And here, we soon will not have that problem. Mexican citizens are moving back to Mexico, they realize the party is over and at least in Mexico they have lower cost of living, a roof over their heads and family support. Here they get abuse and stares from the unemployed.

Why is it that I do not find this surprising?  I haven't seen any evidence that this new party is "extreme" in any sense, certainly when compared to the current regime.

 

Of course, if you  read the actual article, the phrase "I believe they are an example of fascism and we radically oppose them" says it all.  Not the I BELIEVE portion.
