This Is How Greek Neo-Nazis Deal With Confrontation On Live TV

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The video below is a great a preview of things to come in Greece. Per Bloomberg, Greek police on Thursday issued an arrest warrant for the spokesman of far-right party Golden Dawn for assaulting two left-wing politicians on live television.  Ilias Kasidiaris was shown on a live morning show jumping out of his seat and slapping Communist Party member Liana Kanelli three times after throwing a glass of water at leftist SYRIZA party member Rena Dourou. Golden Dawn, which was elected for the first time to parliament in a May 6 election, is accused of carrying out violent attacks against immigrants. Surely, being captured on live national TV beating up women will do wonders for restoring the party's image as that encouraging pacifism and peaceful resolution of problems.

And from IBT:

The spokesman for Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party has assaulted two woman MPs in a live broadcast from a television studio by slapping one and chucking water at another.

Ilias Kasidiaris, who is already facing accusations that he was an accomplice in the mugging of a student, threw his water at Rena Dourou of Syriza (the Coalition of the Radical Left) and then slapped the Communist Party (KKE) member Liana Kanelli three times.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for him.

"When you're slapped by a beast, it's a slap on the cheek of every citizen," Kanelli said after the attack.

A spokesman for the New Democracy party said: "The people must send them [Golden Dawn] to the dustbin of history."

Kasidiaris reportedly threatened journalists and technicians offscreen also.

Golden Dawn, which obtained 7 percent of the vote and 21 seats at the parliamentary, is considered a neo-Nazi party in Greece.

Leader Nikolaos Michaloliakos has rejected claims of affiliation with Nazism, even though the party's emblem, a squared spiral, and its colours recall closely the swastika. Michaloliakos made a Hitler-style salute when he was elected in 2010 to Athens city council.

A video published on YouTube showed muscular supporters of Golden Dawn urging journalists to rise from their seats as a sign of respect for Michaloliakos when he took the stage. Those who refused were expelled from the room.

Well, if one's country is going down, may as well go down swinging. But perhaps there are worhtier targets than women...

At its root, politics is mostly about threatening people with violence if they don't fall in line with your ideas on how to improve the world. So I enjoy this kind of thing because it shows politicians for what they really are. Fistfights in parliaments are also great entertainment. And at least this guy has the balls to use violence himself rather than hiding behind the state.

Right Wingers are all deep down a violent, nefarious bunch. We on the left believe in helping one's fellow man, while the right believe in nothing but the dog eat dog rule of the jungle. I've often been threatened with violence will simply doing my job of regulating small businesses for the government. Some people simply have no scene of social responsibility.

Recently I imposed a firm penalty on a cafe owner for not properly declaring the exact caffeine content in all varieties of his coffee. He told me he'd like to give me a good hiding; I responded by saying the money will go to the government, the government helps those in need - he threw a piece of trash in my face. The best way to stand up to these violent free market types is Gandhi's way. So I simply quoted Proudhone "Property is theft". I also have that tattooed on my right arm in the original french.

Are you really sticking up for the extremists killed in drone strikes? Just because our government does alot of fucked up shit doesn't mean EVERYTHING they do is bad. These people have to be pretty sure they are targets and so if they are going to surround themselves with their kids then that's really fucking selfish. Look at Bin Laden. He knew the entire western world was trying to kill him at any second would and had his kids roll with him? Please. These people get what they deserve. Religious zealots of colors and creeds and terrorists need to be removed (and yes I acknowledge that our government/military are bullies who karmatically have some shit coming). Believe me I know how bad the US government is, but we are relatively selective with regards to whom we kill with the drones. As far as I'm concerned we might even be too judicious with those things. Fuck the Middle East and Islamic extremists. Fuck Christian extremists and Nazis too not to mention the Jews. Killing people actually seems like a good efficient answer. Alot of people wish they put a bullet in Hitler, Idi-Amin, Castro, et al. Assasination is an effective tool and needs to make a comeback. If only they would direct some of those drones to Wall St.

Really, Mr. Psycho?  Go to YouTube and watch this video:  Scenes from a "Black Bloc."  Shows a bunch of people who consider themselves anarchists (but are really Marxists) doing a 10+ minute rampage in San Francisco on April 30.  I watched them cause EASILY six-figures worth of damage:  breaking car windshields, storefront windows, and even attacking police cars (with policemen in them) and the police station!  Why?  To protest the "gentrification" of that neighborhood.

No one side holds the monopoly on violence, but groups on the left are way more violent than anything I've seen on the right.  In fact, there's a YouTube video of tweets from Twitter users who called for the DEATH of Scott Walker!

I'm not defending what the Golden Dawn guy did, but his country is in dire circumstances and he is frustrated with the lefty loonies and their media cohorts.

Oh, and property is not theft.  Take your ridiculous slogan elsewhere.

Marx's communism cannot be achieved but by the heavy hand of the state forcing it down everyone's throat.

If you mean Christ's paradise isn't achievable in this life I'd agree with you, but He claimed that His paradise was not of this world. He said that this world will pass away, but there will be a new heaven and a new earth. You don't believe it, and I understand that, but I'm sure you'll recognize that just as one couldn't prove what He tells us will happen in the future, you can't disprove His "theory", which He says is to happen in the future based upon what you can observe in the here and now.

On the other hand, I think Marx' theory has proven impossible through observation of the outcome of many attempts. It appears that the adherents have come to the conclusion that the only way to bring about a communist stateless society is through an all powerful state imposing its will upon the populace. I consider that a self-contradictory paradigm.

My interpretation of Christ's message is totally different than yours, that's all.  You can focus on the afterlife, but most of what he said applies equally well to the here and now.  He sounds like a Buddhist to me--a good Christian achieves his own personal paradise by *living* in accordance with God's will.

Death is an unnecessary step.

But have it your way.

I think living according to His law and within His will can indeed bring peace and happiness to His followers, we'll never achieve any heaven on earth until His second coming. It does sound like we have a different understanding of what He said. Here are a few verses that make me think He's not promising us a paradise on earth:

And he said, “The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.” Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. Luke 9:22-24

Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.  John 15:20

Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake: Be glad and rejoice for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you. Mat 5:10-12

And when you shall hear of wars and seditions, be not terrified. These things must first come to pass: but the end is not yet presently.  Then he said to them: Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there shall be great earthquakes in divers places and pestilences and famines and terrors from heaven: and there shall be great signs.  But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, dragging you before kings and governors, for my name's sake. Luk 21:9-12

Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence. John 18:36

To be clear: I don't actually believe that a man/God called Jesus Christ as described in the Gospels ever existed.  I don't consider that relevant, though, in evaluating the principles espoused in the New Testament.

The theories are the important bit in the Bible, in my view.  I consider them valid and useful theories, even though there may never have been a magical guy espousing them.

I have no use for theism at all.  Not a testable hypothesis.

I don't know about that. Legitimate anarchy, as I understand it, is rather a free zone where no individual is coerced to partake in any social order and no social contract is implied without direct involvement of the individuals concerned. Forms of gov can arise spontaneously within these limitations.

However, in statism, where the state defines itself as the absolute authority and imposes its social contract arbitrarily on the people concerned (for instance on a geographical basis), the ideology of the state requires the absence of any other overlapping authority. Whether that be so-called 'democracy', facism or communism, the state leaves no room for any alternative governance scheme to arise. Anarchy, however, does, within its mandates of the primacy of individual sovereignty.

How ‘free’ a market is cannot be
objectively defined. It is a political definition. The usual claim by
free-market economists that they are trying to defend the market
from politically motivated interference by the government is false.
Government is always involved and those free-marketeers are as

Colonial Intent, I know that at school you were taught that National Socialists (Nazis) were on the political ‘right’ and that cuddly friendly International Socialist (Marxists) are on the political ‘left’. But you were lied to. Both National Socialists and International Socialist are actually Socialists and are on the ‘left’. The left tends to dominate education and media. It’s hardly surprising that they attempt to re-right history. What is surprising is that you have so completely fallen for something that is patently untrue. Socialists are socialites, regardless of whether they prefer camaraderie across nations by class, or across class by nation.

Thanks. Its people like you that keep me going. That and the firm principled knowledge that, that every tax dollar I help scrape up is going directly from the hands of the undeserving to the deserving, from the profiteer class, to the productive state economy. People on zero hedge fail to live in the real world, complaining of regulations when all the evidence suggests robust regulations and regulators who are empowered to ACT is the lifeblood of any principled economy. As you say, without proper regulations we'd be back to the days of 7 year olds working in coal mines doing 13 hour days with no breaks. Thats what people here are actaully advocating!

Yes you're darn right I'll stick up for myself. After so many threats and negative sentiment, I'm now lobbying for greater powers for us regulators to use the TSA to protect us from such activity. No one doing the real productive work of an economy of maintaining principals and morality, as well as raising government revenue, should have to work in fear of these immoral dollar whores.

It's been hijacked by the radical RIGHT as a term of derision, because it's far easier to mouth platitudes and call your opponent names than it is to support the bases of your policy with good arguments and clear principles.

I've been here the whole time.  "Liberal" has been an increasingly negatively-connoted word since the Reagan Revolution convinced some folks that aggressive "statism" is "conservatism."

What in God's name does a liberal in the classical sense of the word have to do with the progressive pseudo-religion? "Liberal" means a person who is open to rational argument.

You'd have to elaborate, as you're mixing up the derision bit and the philosophic meaning there.  I'm not interested in WI recalls, but I'd be glad to listen to whatever your fevered imagination dreamt up about it.

To be clear, though: there are no "Bolsheviks" in the White House.  If you really and honestly and truly believe there are, there's no basis for conversation with me.

I will let Wikipedia 'splain to you what liberalism in the classic sense of the word means:

Classical liberalism is the philosophy committed to the ideal of limited government, constitutionalism, rule of law, due process, and liberty of individuals including freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and free markets

 

As per Bolsheviks, if you read my post correctly, I used the term "basement" as a qualifier. These are school kids living out a fantasy of what it's like to be a radical revolutionary.

Have a look at the smile and self-satisfied smirk on the face of the one in orange, after he through the water on her. She was initially taken aback for a second, but almost immediately smiled the smile of complete tactical success.  She was in fact happy, as a pig in shit, that she had incited him to lose-it.  She had tried hard for it to happen, and it happened.

It was first and foremost a political calculation and tactic.

Meaning, that was her intention- have a close look at her immediate conscious reaction, after the water hits her.

She has clearly gone to that interview with the pre-determined intent to get such a reaction from him, via goading and baiting him, to get it. She's actually very lucky he threw only the water, and not the glass itself, with full force.  And the other woman, the one who whacked him with a folder.  She's very lucky he only slapped her, for if he had actually gone after her with fists, she would got a real beating.  So like it or not, he was restraining and moderating his responses and escalation here.  He took it to the next level, yes, but he certainly did not do what he could have done.

The bottom line is, it should be thoroughly illegal for any women to incite a man, in that way.

No man would do that and expect not to get attacked. You would not do it.

Let's get something straight, men are not women, men have male hormones and these are difficult to restrain from the natural male tendency to express physical aggression when angered.  Do female chimps or gorilla's dare to enrage an adult male?

Absolutely not!  Because they know the male WILL get aggressive, and will beat the shit out of them, so they know not to incite aggression in the male gorilla.  Well guess what?  Human men have exactly the same hormones and propensity to become physically aggressive is enraged and incited to attack as do those other primates.

So I have zero sympathy for either of these provocative and very stupid women.  Frankly I'm tired of a women thinking they can play to another set of rules, to a double-standard, and keep using this feeble, innocent "victim of violence" bullshit-routine.  They are just fucking with men, they know it, and we know it (just look at that lowlife cunt in the orange dress who's immediately smiling as soon as it happened ... mission accomplished!) and then expecting to not get genuinely physically attacked, possibly even killed.  This definitely can happen.

These two women don't deserve any sympathy, and especially no sort of moral 'support', or 'respect'.  They deserve to face charges and to explain to their peers just what in hell they thought they were doing?

Is this the "fairer sex" ... is it, really?  

If women want respect they better understand that they have to earn it from a  man.  Here's a couple of general frank common traditional social 'truths'; men rightly or wrongly suppose they are superior to women.  It has almost always been a man who has been the first to do some extraordinarily valuable thing.  Another one; men like to fuck women, but they do not like much to be around women, they much prefer the social company of men, or else to be alone. Being around a woman can be a pain in the arse, more often than not.

Not always, but mostly.  And that video neatly shows why this trenchent natural ambivalence exists.

I fail to see how these women are any better than he here.  In fact, taken in isolation, both of these women's behaviours are a vile disgrace and they both should also be held equally accountable for their parts in that situation.  They are at least a responsible and accountable as he is.

Men are increasingly over this sort of bitchy female that then becomes the 'victim' behaviour, and I suspect in future there's going to be a whole lot less patience for idiot women who go out of their way to incite men in that way, and then expect to not get their teeth broken, noses kicked in, and rib-cages stomped on.  As that's exactly what would happen to any man who behaved like those two arsehole women did. 

Why does a woman expect to get away with it?  Because of some absurd and outragous social construct of inequality?  Ironic!  And why does anyone think that man's political input must be deemed invalid, but these 'ladies' shitful political antics are not to be likewise rejected and shunned?  A double-standard is not acceptable!  If a man understands you don't berate another man, because you get hospitalised for it, then women should understand that it applies to them too. 

As that woman in orange showed, she was not an innocent victim of some violent guy.  She deserves to get some corporal punishment and a day in the stocks for her behaviour - the shit-stirring cunt.

The golden rule is to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

'Modern' human society had better start to come to terms with the fact that this sort of considered goading and inciting behaviour shown by these two women, is totally unacceptable, and it must be properly recognised for what it is, and appropriately punished.  It is outragous.

It is up to the society to have a open and clear headed discussion about this, because the social interaction does not reflect the reality of the physiological and mental differences between men and women.  When I grew up, women were not allowed to go in to a public bar of a hotel.  That was a male only area (except for bar maids).  This was because it was recognised back then that there were real and valid reasons for segregation of the sexes, in some places and activities - because we are not the same, and we should not be treated the same, nor be expected to behave the same.  We may all be humans, but males and females are most definately are not alike.

This used to be understood in the western culture I knew.

Now, like so much else, in our 'progressive' degraded and deranged culture, the social and gender interation and system is out of balance, and has become increasingly dysfunctional.

If women are bitchy little cunts, and actually can't help it, or don;t want to, due to their hormones, and their social edifices - fine.  

If men tend to be gruff, potentially violent, and demanding of respect (deserved or not), due to their hormones and social edifices - so be it.

And if these two females can not plainly discuss contentious issues like this in public, with the full diverse spectrum of malenes, without that sort of thing occurring, then they should be segregated from discussions with males. 

To hell with women who behave like that.  Who needs this shit?  In this respect at least, I think traditional Greek culture, and Arab culture got it right, to keep distances between the mixing of males with females, in some settings. 

And if he being a bit of an opinionated tosser responds with growing anger and sternness, which dear 'ladies' is a real-world physical threat display, and THE natural human warning mechanism, (at least men don't hammer on their chests and roar like Gorillas do) to such insults and harassment, and is known to respond with a low-thresholds of restraint, either verbal or physical, then that's his physiological make-up.  Deal with it.  Or just don't or mix with such a fit mature alpha male - at all.

And that response is not the definition of a 'Fascist' mentality, or some shit of that sort.  It may be why he holds views towards direct actions though.  The natural-world produces natural alpha-males (and there is a wide spectrum of these).  They are typically leaders, or else outcasts.  They are innately more aggressive.  This guy is clearly one, so just get over it.  A naturally aggressive physiology and make-up does not define a person's politics, nor is it a reason to put your words in their mouth.

People like him should never be stirred up unnecessarily, or deliberately, because they will eventually become physically aggressive.  The natural word produced men like that for a reason.  They are a necessary and valid part of the community and also very valuable, for many reasons.  And you really do want to keep them on your side and neutral.

Does anyone not realise that? 

They knew this. So what the fuck did these two think they are doing, attacking in that way, especially when he's emitting typical warning signs, showing teeth, tight lips, stern appearance, sharp physical gesticulation and clear signs of rising anger and rejection of their behaviours.  All are very clear warnings of what is coming if continued.  The woman in orange obviously knew where that was going, she has obviously done it to men before, knew exactly what would occur, and made sure she pressed his buttons all the more, to get the reactions she wanted.  She deserves to be formally punished.

So where were the fucking moderators, who absolutely should have seen and understood what all three of them were doing?

In which case, if each of these three can not, or will not restrain themselves, or else they have no desire to sublimate their clearly out-of-control ego's and mouths to public decency and orderliness, then they should be segregated, and not mix together, nor discuss political issues in this way, in any such a public forum - EVER!
 
As it stands, they are all way out of order, and all three have demonstrated that they should be thrown out of politics, and rejected from public life and exposure.  All three of them are unbalanced and dangerous to social cohesion and constructive interactions. 

Young aggressive men need to realise that there is a subset of fucked-up idiot women will try this crap on them.

And young women need to understand that they could easily end up with much worse than a mere bitch-slap from doing this.  There's a reason why the term "bitch-slap" exists.

Men and women are still basically hairless apes, so women need to pull their heads out of their arses and get-real about how they interact with the male apes.

Some are passive, some most definately are not, but most are in-between.  Ladies need to understand and accept that EVERY male has a valid place and role in human society. 

If you don't like this fact, well, that's just tough luck, for you ,and your head full of fucked-up progressive bad-wiring and confusion about YOUR role and place in the scheme of things social.

Many men would prefer if you just shut you pie-hole and keep any bitchiness and blather to yourself.

But many men are so thoroughly unimpressed by many women, that they won't even bother to tell you any of this.

 

Now watch that video again.
