  •  Greece has other fascist elements (13+ / 0-)

    The Neo-Nazi party has some degree of influence and power in Greece:

    Fed-up Greek voters took to the polls Sunday to deliver a devastating blow to the political establishment and made hard turns to both the far-left and the far-right, with both a Communist Party and a Neo-Nazi party winning a significant number of seats.

    Greek neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn won its first seats in the Greek parliament since the end of the military junta in 1974, winning 21 out of 300 seats.

    •  Same fascist party (6+ / 0-)

      And they're growing.

      The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

        A while back (a few months ago?) someone posted a diary with some news in it about the Greek fascist party's office being decorated with early 20th century Nazi stuff including Nazi swastika flags and a bust of Hermann Goering.  

        If it was possible to get color photos of that, and spread them around widely, it might get the attention it deserves.   (I wonder if the Israeli Mossad could arrange to get someone in there to take pictures?  If not the Mossad, then any of the Jewish organizations that specialize in hunting down Nazis from WW2 could do it.)

        Neo-Nazis are still Nazis, and if anything, that "neo-" prefix should raise alarms in much the same way as when it's used for "neo-conservatives" and "neo-liberals."  

        "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
