A Very Brief Intellectual History of the Rise of the Golden Dawn

A long time ago

The Left: “Hey, those guys are neonazis!”
Intelligentsia: “Let’s talk about postmodernism and the end of history.”

A bit less long ago

The Left: “We’re troubled by the media’s constant racist propaganda.”
Intelligentsia: “What are the media?”

A few years ago

The Left: “Seriously, these guys are dangerous! And the media aren’t reporting their crimes.”
Intelligentsia: “Let’s talk about the irrelevance of the idea of progress.”

Now

The Left: “The neonazis are getting widespread support! They’re starting actual pogroms! They’re stabbing people! They’re attacking journalists! They’re threatening and even beating people on live TV!”
Intelligentsia: “Yes, but the real problem facing our country is the violent language of the Left.”

    Rise of the Golden Dawn

    A long time ago

    The Left: “Long live multiculturalism, we have managed to impose it against the will of the ethnic greek people. Soon we will create or racial paradise were whites are gonr!!death to whites, long live anti-racism”
    Intelligentsia: “diversity, integration, tolerance, enrichment”

    A bit less long ago

    The Left: “ Greek women are being raped at an industrial level, mass-immigration will soon make ethnic Greeks a minority in their country, I our success is remarkable, we have infected the media and universities, our supporters such as George Soros, Goldman sachs, aids us in our struggle for hate and racism ”
    Intelligentsia: “Treason to the white race is loyalthy to mankind”

    A few years ago

    The Left: “Hahah! Old Greek people cannot even go and buy food without being robbed by racist immigrants in the multicultural areas we have forced on the people, ethnic Greek girls are being raped at an industrial level, and we call anyone that points this out for racist and nazi!!”
    Intelligentsia: “We hate white people, we are anti-racists.”

    Now

    The Left: “What? What is this? The raped, beaten, starving Greeks are forming organisation to protect themselves? How dare they! Those filthy white racists!! Why are Greeks resisting we own the media, we beat down anyone with white skin that opposes multiculturalism, and yet they resist those damn jew killing blood drinking neo-nazi, don’t they understand Greek women need to be raped by racist illegal aliens to pay for colonalism!!!”
    Intelligentsia: “Resistance to multiculturalism is neo-nazism, shut off your brains, dissconnect your computers, else our leftist argument wont make any sense.”

  2. I considered deleting this comment, because I generally don’t allow fascists on this blog, but it’s a pretty good illustration of just how delusional some people are.

    The Left: “Long live multiculturalism, we have managed to impose it against the will of the ethnic greek people. Soon we will create or racial paradise were whites are gonr!!death to whites, long live anti-racism”
    Intelligentsia: “diversity, integration, tolerance, enrichment”

    How do you impose multiculturalism? It’s not a political system. And when was it imposed in Greece? (And by whom? Was SYRIZA elected and I didn’t notice?) When you say “impose multiculturalism” all you mean is that they prevented you from killing the people you hate.

    As for “death to whites” – how insane do you have to be to assume that not wanting to kill or expel immigrants means hating white people? Beyond which, since when has whiteness ever been an issue in Greece? Since when are Greeks even “white”? I know lots of Greeks with skin that is anything but white. Because, you know, we’re a Mediterranean people….

    The Left: “ Greek women are being raped at an industrial level,

    Except that didn’t happen…

    mass-immigration will soon make ethnic Greeks a minority in their country,

    …and that’s simply not true…

    our supporters such as George Soros, Goldman sachs,

    …and now you mean to say that two representatives of extremes capitalism are left-wing? Goldman Sachs, held up by the left as pretty much the ultimate incarnation of everything that’s wrong with the world, is… what? A communist conspiracy?

    Intelligentsia: “Treason to the white race is loyalthy to mankind”

    What white race? The very concept of races has long been abandoned by people who have any kind of understanding of science or history. The very fact that you have adopted this outdated ideology, an ideology created by those who considered Greeks to be inferior and killed them by the thousands, says pretty much everything.

    The Left: “Hahah! Old Greek people cannot even go and buy food without being robbed by racist immigrants in the multicultural areas we have forced on the people

    Multicultural areas? What, you think the fact that poor immigrants tend to live in the poor parts of town is the result of a plan, and not simply economic logic? Oh, and once again the statistics on immigrant crime versus Greek crime don’t actually support your fantasy. It’s just that the media (owned by right-wing plutocrats, not the left as you pretend) only make a big point of a criminal’s ethnicity when they aren’t Greek. Of course the massive increase in poverty also caused a massive increase in the crime rate, but to investigate the causes of that would mean talking about systemic problems, not blaming the problems caused by capitalism on Albanians or Pakistanis or whoever the bogeyman of the week is.

    “We hate white people, we are anti-racists.”

    Nope, I hate the Greek intelligentsia, but they never said that. Because pretty much no-one says anything like that except in your weird fantasies.

    What? What is this? The raped, beaten, starving Greeks are forming organisation to protect themselves? How dare they! Those filthy white racists!!

    The only protection the Golden Dawn has ever offered anyone is the kind of protection the mafia offers. You don’t protect people by threatening to attack babies and stabbing people in the street.

    Why are Greeks resisting we own the media, we beat down anyone with white skin that opposes multiculturalism

    Funny, if the left owns the media, why is the left consistently demonized while the (factual, recorded, legally recognized) crimes of the Golden Dawn are ignored? Why are SYRIZA supporters branded as terrorists while people who have physically attacked others get tons of positive airtime? And why are the media owned by very rich right-wing white people, if they are a conspiracy of the anti-white communists?

    don’t they understand Greek women need to be raped by racist illegal aliens to pay for colonalism

    Now you’re just throwing together a bunch of random things: illegal aliens (not the same as multiculturalism, not even remotely), your rape fantasies (which are really just the oldest fascist cliché – like claiming that SYRIZA will steal Greek women) and colonialism (which the left has always been opposed to; that’s pretty much what makes it the left). You’re trying to appeal to some kind of terrifying evil invader who will rape our women and steal our children… but this simply doesn’t exist, as it never has. Meanwhile the government takes away one right after another and gives away the wealth of the people to the banks. And when people protest against that, against the real reason people are poor and society is falling apart, the Golden Dawn goes out there and helps the police to stop the people’s voice from being heard.

    That’s what the Golden Dawn does. Violently support the same people who sold out the country and surrendered national sovereignty to the EU and the IMF. And you’re telling me they want to defend Greece from the foreigners? By helping the people who passed the laws that made Greece into a colony?

    “Resistance to multiculturalism is neo-nazism, shut off your brains, dissconnect your computers, else our leftist argument wont make any sense.”

    Nah, violence and thuggery combined with racist fantasies about the evils of multiculturalism and nonsense about “the white race” is neo-nazism. Admiring Hitler, as the Golden Dawn does, is neo-nazism. Blaming foreigners while supporting those who destroy our democratic rights is neo-nazism.

    I don’t want to weight in too heavily here, since I know very little about what’s actually going on on a day-to-day basis in Greece (not much Greek coverage here in the UK) so all I have to go on is your two opposing posts.

    But going by those two… Katrhin, yours sounds completely insane. Sorry, but it really really does.

    Also: “Admiring Hitler, as the Golden Dawn does, is neo-nazism.” – they what? How can they claim to not be neonazis while admiring, you know, the ultimate Nazi?

    Don’t know much about that situation in Greece, but it seems to me that neonazis in different countries are quite similar in two aspects: they demonize whatever group they see as a threat and they fall under the delusion that complicated questions might have simple answers.

  5. The ridiculous, demented, Nazi rant by Kathrin once again proves that all fascists must be crushed.

    The constant focus on the “rape our women” fantasy makes me wonder about their sexual life issues.
