Greek Colonization 102: Europe Calls For Reconstruction Commissioner In Athens

Tyler Durden's picture


First they force now officially defaulted Greece to bailout European banks courtesy of a Greek funded Escrow package, then they make Greek pays for the privilege of having a job, then they send in German tax collectors, and finally they prepare to pilfer the gold. And simply because nobody is home, the colonization continues, with the formal take over of the country by a "Kommisar"


And since not even this colonial escalation will do much if anything to stir the locals, we can't even imagine what the next annexation steps will be.

Wow!   Europe is futher to the right than we are!   The dumb-craps in Washington would have called him a Reconstruction CZAR

I vote Asmussen in for the job of "Reconstruction Kommisar."  He would be perfect.

Geez, where's old Europe heading to - no archdukes, viceroys or even "Reich Special plenipotentiaries" to go with the Stalinist drivel...

The waiter who, just now, spilled a tray of beers on Merkle had the right idea.

What is the Greek equivalent to the FEMAcamp going to be?

Or should I be asking what the German equivalent is?

Here's the thing: The Greek people didn't vote for a debt increase EVER, so technically they are not responsible for running up the national debt. The Greek people only voted for increased benefits, not increased debt. It is the BANKERS and IMF that are responsible for the debt, not Greek voters.

That's awesome! I hereby vote you a gold-plated, 5 story mansion with a bevy of fembots to attend to your every need. You (and your family) will have to pay for it, of course. But I vote that you should have those benefits :)

I thought Reconstruction ended in 1876 after the fraudulent Hayes-Tilden election.  Do the field hands in Greece need freeing?

This "reconstruction" idea will not last for long. There is only one solution to the debt crisis outside of a revolution:

The Cure to Greek’s Debt Crisis: War with Turkey

And the first battleground is ready with Cyprus becoming more militarized with each move.

Next step:  All Greeks will be given a train trip to Oswiecim, Poland for a vacation.  This will free up more beach space for the Master Race.

Why should Britain return the Elgin Marbles ? They were bought by Lord Elgin. On that basis Louisiana should be returned to the French and Alaska to the Russians.

"Why should Britain return the Elgin Marbles ? They were bought by Lord Elgin. On that basis Louisiana should be returned to the French and Alaska to the Russians."

Yes, under the perfectly legitimate and auspices of the Ottoman Empire.  Yes, yes, all very well and proper, wot, wot.

So now you want to get the Hagia Sophia back and expel the Ottomans from Asia Minor ? Great. US forces can liberate Constantinople

What in the hell are those Greeks doing? Are there any Spartans left? I sure hope to God we aren't as pathetic when it's our turn. I 'm getting this sickening feeling we will be though.

Based on what I'm seeing now with the seemingly daily government encroachment on our civil liberties and nobody even batting an eye , I have to agree with you.

What, have you no faith in the "Occupy Movement" and all of the other divide and conquer collectivist political operations? Now that the weather's nicer, they're coming back out of hibernation.

Remember, it's all about THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION EVAH!

Well, at least that's what the political class want you to believe. Selling the sizzle because they have no steak to sell (they ate it all).

Can't tell you how sick I am of hearing " the most important election in our lives". What will be important is when people finally get off their asses and do something.
