I cannot write at the moment about Golden Dawn. I do not understand why people still support them. I do not know why people are choosing homophobic, racist, rabidly anti-semitic, nazi loving, thugs and murderers over other people who may be far from perfect but certainly do not want to go to war with all Greece’s neighbours, puts mines on borders, abuse and assault and kill all immigrants, hate Jews and deny the holocaust. They have the intellectual capacities of three year olds (and that’s not meant to insult three year olds but I’m afraid it probably does). They have no real political experience of any note; other than threatening and disrupting anyone who disagrees with them. They have no policies.
Why are people still supporting them? WHY?
There is evidence all over the internet, in the newspapers and on TV that they admire NAZIS. They follow Nazi ideology. They do Nazi salutes, have swastika tattoos, praise Hitler and Goebbels, have homes filled with Nazi paraphernalia and so on and so on and so on.
And yet, their support is growing again.
Why do people admire thugs? How can people support those who admire people that killed their relatives and fellow human beings? What is the “allure” of Nazis?
I am just repeating myself over and over. Everyone KNOWS now what Golden Dawn are about now.
For now I’ll just post articles until I can find something to say again.
Mandravelis believed that the crackdown would drive away a big chunk of the neo-Nazi party’s voters. “I expected that the sight of Golden Dawn members in handcuffs would remind people that there is a force larger than them, that these guys were not that untouchable after all, and as a result their popularity would be reined in,” he says.
That has not happened. Nearly two months after the launch of a judicial investigation into the neo-Nazi party – which is reportedly linked to 10 murders, as well as attempted murder, blackmail, money laundering and other crimes – public surveys suggest that despite the aura of criminality around Golden Dawn, its popularity has not been hit.
Will voters regret their decision to vote for this criminal gang?
I believe they will. It can’t go any other way but towards more violence and death. They are not capable of anything else.
The man who is alleged to have made the phone call that precipitated the murder of rapper Pavlos Fyssas by a Golden Dawn member in September told magistrates on Tuesday that he had not intended for anyone to be hurt and that he did not want anything to do with the neo-Nazi party.
The man, referred to simply as G.A. by court sources, said he was at a cafe in Keratsini, near Piraeus, watching a soccer game when he felt threatened by the presence of a large group of people who were allegedly criticizing Golden Dawn in their conversation.
He claims this prompted him to call another Golden Dawn member, Yiannis K., who was the driver of the car in which Giorgos Roupakias arrived to stab Fyssas to death.
“I got carried away with Golden Dawn,” G.A. reportedly told magistrates.
“I do not want to see them before my eyes again.”
