Greece’s Right Wing: A New Dawn?


“We are a Christian nation and we are Europeans. We don’t need Asians, Muslim fanatics in our country, simple as that,” says Ilias Panagiotaros, Golden Dawn spokesman, as he explains party policy: “Seal our borders with mines, full protection from army in the borders, high penalties and fines for Greeks who rent houses to illegal immigrants, high penalties and fines for Greeks who have illegal immigrants in their jobs.”

Greek national elections were today: exit polls show Golden Dawn wins 5 to 8 percent of the vote, better than expected, which translates into about 25 seats in the Greek parliament. Caught this on NPR’s Morning Edition.

Update: We might start paying more attention to Europe on this website. This is “Occidental Dissent.” Southern nationalism is really just another nationalist movement like Vlaams Belang in Belgium.

Note: As expected, Hollande has defeated Sarkozy in France. Maureen Dowd has a new op ed on Marine Le Pen.

  1. This newspage,, is Swedens 260th largest Website. And that inclued pages like google, facebook, youtube etc…

    The Swedes have been big supporters of White Nationalism (real WN’sm) for years; they also supported men like RJM and DL when ‘amuricans’ were too scared too.

  2. It’s: boite ou valise!

    Should cow the Algerians. What’s interesting here is that Hollande may find it impossible to govern. The FN must be in a position to dictate a few policies now. UMP can’t bleed off 6 million votes and take itself seriously anymore. I just hope another Sarkozy can’t triangulate it all again.

  3. The problem will be to replicate this in the UK. Because the constituencies are first past the post, a nationalist is unlikely to gain real traction.

  4. Greeks are new to the mass immigration bumrush and have not had time ot get used to it like France and Britain. That and the fact that they are a generally aggressive people with a generally low ability to swallow PC the propaganda had to get pushed hard. But in so doing it became so obvious.

    Check out the photos form the supporters of the PASOK Party (like Democrats in USA):

    That was once the mainstream party. Now?

    Also, Kissinger was supposed to have said this in 1974:

    “The Greek people are anarchic and difficult to tame. For this reason we must strike deep into their cultural roots: Perhaps then we can force them to conform. I mean, of course, to strike at their language, their religion, their cultural and historical reserves, so that we can neutralize their ability to develop, to distinguish themselves, or to prevail; thereby removing them as an obstacle to our strategically vital plans in the Balkans, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East.”

    This is what happened.

  5. It was supposed to have been said to a bunch of political hacks and was quoted in “??????????? ??????????” (“Economic Mailman”). That is where I heard it was quoted. That and it has been intensely discussed by Greeks ever since so it has been a source of titilation for many of them. Whether he said it or not, it is true regarding their nature and with respect to what happened.

    I hope this was somewhat helpful.

  6. How many Jews did Xerxes have working for him? The Persians and Jews were pretty tight. They rolled over like dogs when Alexander arrived but they must have been part of the fleet and army that sacked Athens around the time of the battle of Thermopyleawhassitcalledagain?

    The Greeks are the perfect anarchists.

  7. The first page of Dowd’s article quotes Le Pen as saying “love is a hell of a medicine”. In French, the phrase conveying a similar amount of emphasis would be “l’amour, c’est un sacré médicament” – with the operative word being sacred; in other word, the precise exact opposite of what Dowd claims is a quote.

    If it’s in the New York Times, it’s lying to you.

  8. She told a sea of passionate supporters that she would cast a blank ballot and that it didn’t matter whether they voted for the Socialist, François Hollande, or the conservative incumbent: “They are the same.”

    Ain’t much difference between Romney and Obama, other than in their personal lives.

    Meaning, I doubt Romney spends his days doing coke and having sex with men. And Obama’s eyes look like shit whenever he has to speak at a impromptu media event.

  9. One has to pause and reflect on the fact that such movements are actually doctrinally on the other side. They resemble White nationalist movements, but the trouble is that loyalty around which they build their structure is to their country only. “Golden Dawn” would oppose any arrival of immigrants from Sweden or France, even if there is economic possibility for that, with the same zeal they would do it with Pakistani or India-originating immigrants. They could not care less about rise of, say, Negro crimes against Whites in US or South Africa. And that pretty much describes many “right wing” European parties: they are limited on their ethnic group and may be hostile to other ones, neighboring and those which are minority in their countries.
