Majority Of Neo-Normal Greek Cops Vote Neo-Nazi

Tyler Durden's picture

In a somewhat stunning revelation, especially after our earlier note on the Golden Dawn leader's 'position' on the issues of the day, GreekReporter notes via the news paper To Vima, that more than half of all police officers in Greece voted for pro-Nazi party Golden Dawn in the elections of May 6th. It's not really for us to judge (well maybe it is) but when some polling stations report Golden Dawn receiving 19-24% of the votes, things are going from the dismal to the horrific (and potentially chaotic) very fast.


ANSAmed: Greece: More than half police officers voted Neonazi party

Upsetting result revealed by newspaper "To Vima"


(ANSAmed) - ATHENS, MAY 11 - More than half of all police officers in Greece voted for pro-Nazi party Chrysi Avgi' (Golden Dawn) in the elections of May 6. This is the disconcerting result of an analysis carried out by the authoritative newspaper To Vima (TheTribune) in several constituencies in Athens, where 5,000 police officers in service in the Greek capital also cast their ballot.


At some polling stations Chrysi Avgi' obtained 19 to 24% of votes.


Others, like Agios Panteleimonas and Kypseli, traditional strongholds of the party, reached 15 to 18%. According to the newspaper, at the 11 polling stations (from 806 to 816) located near the police station (Ellas), Chrysi Avgi' received most votes, reaching 18.64% at station 813 and 23.67% at number 816.


Other polling stations situated at a short distance from the ones mentioned before, where police officers do not vote, recorded 12-14% of votes for the Golden Dawn party.


Moreover, the four polling stations located near the riot police station (MAT), used by the police, recorded percentages between 13 and 19 for Chrysi Avgi'.


These figures, To Vima underlines, are impressive, considering the fact that other polling stations close to the riot police station reached 7-10% of votes for the pro-Nazi party. Based on the electoral lists, 550 to 700 people have voted at each of these voting stations, of which 20 to 30% police officers. This means, the newspaper worked out, that 45 to 59% of police officers have voted for Chrysi Avgi'. (ANSAmed).

Gotta love those Icey folks.  Don't know why the Greeks won't learn anything from them.

Typical spineless citizenry, voting for a radical gov't to do the brow beating for them.  Shows how powerful pensions and getting paid for sitting on your ass is - more powerful than accepting financial reality, apparently.

Today, AG1761 expedites his first physical silver trade.

No kidding, I exchnaged 1 Oz phyzz for a 3 year old in perfecr condition mountain bike.

We spoke a bit about life, the universe and all things Greek as one does these days. To my surprise he was switched on re possible wider consequences of a Greek exit. The guy wanted £40 for the bike, I offered an Oz, he said wtf was that, I explained, he woke up, shook my hand and walked away with a smile and a promise to look into this PM shit.

I'm a barter bitch and woke up someone today.

I feel kind of good.

Welcome to Southern California, where any notion of "justice" is long gone from the law-enforcement/court system.

You didn't mention that the one of the officers said quote "Now see my fists? They are getting ready to fuck you up." And another officer said "I just smashed his face to hell" after he pounded the guys skull with the butt of Taser. 

This is what was left of him:

The guy they killed was homeless and schizophrenic. The police were investigating reports of auto vandalism in the area. They killed him simply because he wouldn't "comply" (meaning, allow himself to be humiliated and dominated by a bunch of fat-fuck middle-aged welfare queens who think they're big men cause they got a government job). 

Don't trust the police, ladies and gentlemen. Trust yourself and your family ... you know what I mean. You'd be shocked at how many police have idiot-level IQs. You'd be shocked at how many police do off-duty security for "sketchy" individuals and business. In the Rampart scandal in LA, it was made known publicly just how many LAPD officers were not only full members of the Bloods/Crips streetgangs but also doing off-duty security for Suge Knight and other figures in the hip-hop world. Would you trust Suge Knight's security team to take care of your kids in an emergency? Exactly. The mentality that takes people into (present-day) law-enforcement is very similar to the mentality that takes people into crime. A lot of these cops would be doing 100 years in San Quentin if they weren't officers because if they weren't beating people up from behind a badge, they'd be beating people up from behind a red or blue bandanna. 

The most pathetic stuff is the "leftists" who bemoan police brutality and then turn-around and say these guys deserve to retire at 55 and have $100,000 pensions for life. Useless idiots.

well said Chris.

Nowadays, it's sorta like "A Clockwork Orange" where the "droogies" simply go from gangbanging to "law enforcement"...

Modern amerikan cops reflect the decadent society that spawned them....Fat, bald, powertripping, militarized, dullards who wouldn't know or appreciate Constitutional principles if they walked up and tazered them in the ass.

"more than half of all police officers in Greece voted for pro-Nazi party Golden Dawn in the elections of May 6th"

That's how you know Greece is a "liberal" society.

In amerika, it would be ALL OF 'EM.

"Pro-Nazi party Golden Dawn"

This statement by ZeroHedge clearly shows their true mature. If ZeroHedge calls Greek nationalists pro-Nazi then why didn't they call Israel a pro-Nazi and racist state?

Well, the answer is simple: ZeroHedge is a provocateur criticizing the Zionist-controlled Central-Banking Mafia but never calling their real names. Who are these "unknown families" controlling FED, ECB, and others? Do not expect that ZeroHedge will ever identify them by names.

Finally, do not be surprised if ZeroHedge will be more than willing to provide the info about its bloggers to "proper authorities".



Remember Al Qaeda? Somehow Americans got a lot of their leaders killed but never, I repeat never, any of Taliban leaders were ever killed or captured. Apparently, Taliban is independent from CIA, MI5, and Mossad!

Something isn’t kosher with Al Qaeda. Just imagine if Osama ben Laden was captured and brought to the USA for a trial. But it never happened. Al Qaeda and similar games must continue, otherwise, there will not be the NWO.

Evidently according to Zero Hedge calling bullshit on Mickey Mouse gas chambers that killed millions and enforcing immigration laws makes one a Neo-Nazi.

I'm a little disappointed that ZH is going around pointing the, of all the things in the world, the "Neo-Nazi" finger at, of all things, an anti-establishment party in befuddled Greece.  I was on the objective bus and I thought ZH was too but to use the German abbreviation for National Socialism to discredit the police officers of Greece as racist, on a geo-political finance blog?  Well that just doesn't make any sense.  I watched the sensationalist interview with the leader of the Golden Dawn and it seemed to me an establishment media source attacking a man with different views than the Western media stated norm.  I don't appreciate the sensationalist approach of ZH, c'mon Tyler, of applying the blanket label "Neo-Nazi" to a political movement that doesn't approve of the status quo, which is not a recent history but quite an evolution of global geo-politics.

The Holocaust happened but it did not happen in the way that the media, history books, movies, museums, monuments, and the propaganda teaches.  It is nothing more than public relations, psychology, mind control, marketing and brain-washing at its finest.  We obsess over the Holocaust but we forget about the Bolshevik Revolution, Maoist China, and our genocidal practices try Iraqi sanctions under Clinton for example.  Drug war in Mexico/Latin America?  Native Americans, where are the monuments?  African Americans?  A tragedy is a tragedy and that's it.  People are afraid to look in the mirror because they don't want the truth.  It is easier to live in blissful ignorance than to admit that you've been living a lie, you've supported a lie, and you've propagated the lie.  It is difficult to call yourself a fascist or a supporter/taxpayer in a fascist nation state but with the passing of Nakba and the continued preponderance of the Holocaust it is easy to see the hyprocrisy.  The UN continues the hypocrisy to this day through their public relations arms of UNICEF, Red Cross, WWF, Doctors without Borders, NED, <insert western NGO here> and there is no greater example than world's longest occupation of Palestine.  There is not a problem with Judaism but rather a problem with use of Judaism as a pretext for racism which simply doesn't exist.  Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Egypt are some other examples of the global hypocrisy at work.  Who has the destabilization of all these nations benefitted?  Human rights, humanitarian intervention, insurgents, the war on terror, democracy, republicans, democrats, and the like are all linguistical terms that don't reflect their true dictionary definition any more. Who does the media work for after all?  Thus how do they report the news?  Was the Nakba covered in the NYTimes yesterday?

We are united on this blog through mathematics, objective truths, and what seems to me the desire to have a better global system of governance that protects true human rights.  Anyone or anything that seeks to control the debate inherently denies the truth and to leave oneself incapable of questioning the official version of for example the Holocaust, Communism, Socialism, Capitalism, Christianity, etc. negates both math, truth, and the desire for a better system of global integration(not the NWO, but a system of states' rights and free trade honoring above all the local culture of each nation's people).  Information is key and informing oneself is one's own civic duty, not that of the state who will control the debate and dictate their version of history to best serve the state. 

I could list the links to support some of these points but I've already rambled long enough, ask for them.  May ZH stay to truth, historical fact, charts, timeless quotes, and the wonderful reporting they've demonstrated over the past 5 years...has it really been that long?  I have learned much from ZH and from many of the informed posters therein but to lower ourselves to the sensational approach of the MSM is only to give in to their psychological warfare.  We can all see the monetary system as the current source of evil and that is the place we must focus our attention.  Spain is down the tubes and they are begging the ECB, EU, and/or the Troika to act.  This just shows the mantra of the interventionist and the wisdom of Mises.  The truth is objective and when emotions enter into the debate, it is already lost.  Here's to the truth and to leaving a better legacy for our children and for all future generations to grace this amazing planet called Earth.  peace love freedom and prosperity for all, ghostbusters

Coming from a family of law-enforcement (NYPD detectives and FBI) I hope these guys get 25-to-life and put in general population. That way, I don't have to worry about some pieces of shit like this who were scored as borderline criminals somehow dragging my family into their twisted hell.

The only thing good that will come of this is that this is going to be so clear that the charges are going to stick. And perhaps more law-enforcement will think a 2nd time about a blow to a citizen that is uncalled for.

Bravo:  Get used to that.  Those 90% silver coins will be good too.

Speaking of silver, the Greek people have been so desparate for cash that I have been buying silver coins from 1960, 1963 and 1964 for under the spot price of the silver ontent in fairly large qantities from a good contact.

To be honest, i cannot undertand why they aren't using these coins for hand to hand transactions if they are worried about their euros.

It would certainly at least make any barter transactions easier to complete.

Typical spineless citizenry

Besides of firestarting the finance ministry and massprotests..... but agreed, they should have gone further..... if the irish are any indication, not even 2% of the entire population marching on the gov and protesting, cuts it nowadays (the irish did just that).... cause it will just be ignored, unless you - once you already have the masses there, storm it.

, voting for a radical gov't to do the brow beating for them.

In an event that does only cover voting.... and where you only get "extreme parties" claiming to oppose the anti-bailouts (the hard left btw got way more than the hard right).... and where there are no other dishes on the menu... what else is there to do?

  Shows how powerful pensions and getting paid for sitting on your ass is

Paid pensions and wages..... in greece? In which parallel universe are you living?

- more powerful than accepting financial reality, apparently.

Accepting financial reality? What is that supposed to mean? Financial parallel world reality is "You have 100x more debt, pulled out of our own asses, than you ever in non-financials-reality will be able to pay. "Financial reality" is "we pulled some really ridiculous claim and strategy (you know, one where basic school maths is declared invalid) out of our asses, and your nonrepresentatives agreed to it, partially without telling you... so now you gotta pay up with nonexistance capital.... and if you cannot do that, just sell the country to us please.


TL/DR: Bankster propaganda bitch, playing the divide and conquer card.

GOSPLAN HERO's picture

The Wehrmacht Security Divisions were set up at the beginning of 1941 and were intended to perform policing, security and anti-partisan duties in the rear of the main German field armies, under the direction of the respective army rear area command, or Korück. They were organised from divisions initially raised in the 3rd wave of mobilisation, these being former Landwehr divisions largely manned by second-line reservists.

As support units, they were comparatively poorly equipped, and often made up of men who were for the most part unfit for frontline service through age or disability. As well as various guard (Landesschützen) and police battalions, the divisions were supposed to be provided with one standard regiment of troops, plus an artillery detachment, as a 'strike force', though in practice this was often used for frontline duty as local conditions demanded. In many cases, the Security Divisions also included battalions of Ukrainian, Russian or French soldiers as well as a unit of captured foreign tanks. Their exact organisation varied widely between individual formations and during the course of the war (see the 286th Security Division for an example).

Many of the Security Divisions were thrown into frontline service during the major Soviet offensives of 1944, such as Operation Bagration, and destroyed in the process. Some were rebuilt as standard infantry divisions due to the chronic manpower shortages of the Wehrmacht in this period. -- wikipedia

I have never been sure what to make of it but of all of what could be considered front line Waffen SS divisions in those days (1-6th, 9,10,12, 17th) the 4th SS "Polizei" composed almost entirely of policemen had the poorest combat record of any of them.  Every other division in that group had a very high level of battlefield performance and were fearsome in a fight but the 4th pretty much got its butt kicked and never had much of a reputation amongst the rest of the SS fighting troops.

They may have enjoyed lording it over civilians at home, but when the opposition was armed they did not do well by any measure. Somehow I dont find this too surprising.

Greece has a foreign currency, one they can not print or de value, the Icelandic currency on the other hand more than halfed against other currencies in the crash, and the central bank could fork ISK into the ATM's as fast as they wanted. They could easily guarantee all savings deposits, as it was just paper and ink.

This makes the crash much easier for Icelanders than those who are stuck with the euro.

I heard a rumour that there were 2 cargo containers at Sundahofn harbor stuffed with ISK when the crisis hit, so the PM and co must have seen this coming, a few months ahed at least, if this is correct.

I think the main difference is that Greek society is in a phase of advanced deterioration and that they are proven "HORRIBLE" managers of money and monetary policy.  All governments fuck up/make mistakes but the Greek situation was out of control for the past 25-30 years.

Iceland had the biggest GDP growth in the last two years compared to all EU countries.
They showed the foreign banks their middle finger and defaulted. No TBTF!
