Posted on 09/28/2013 8:14:02 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Police had arrested the leader and more than a dozen senior members of the far-right Golden Dawn party after the killing of an anti-fascist rapper by a party supporter triggered outrage and protests across the country. Reuters reports that the party's leader, spokesman, two other lawmakers and 10 members were arrested on charges of founding a criminal organisation. Police confiscated two guns and a hunting rifle from the home of Mihaloliakos, saying he did not have a license for them. As has been reported previously, Golden Dawn, is under investigation for the murder of Pavlos Fissas, who bled to death after being stabbed twice by a party sympathiser.
While PM Samaras ruled out snap elections after the arrests, it is difficult to see how this full crackdown on Golden Dawn can be contained in government without major repercussions: "Justice, stability, without elections," he said.
The party has denied any links to the killing and Mihaloliakos has warned the party could pull its lawmakers from parliament if the crackdown does not stop. Golden Dawn, whose emblem resembles a swastika, rose from obscurity to enter parliament last year after promising to mine Greece's borders to prevent illegal immigrants from entering. Its members have been seen giving Nazi-style salutes but the party rejects the neo-Nazi label.
One thing is certain: in Greece, where broad unemployment (not to mention youth) hits a new record high every month, the population certainly has a lot of free time. All that would take for that idleness to be harnessed and catalyzed, is some major ideologically-charged social event which instead of dismantling the neonazis, further coalesces public support behind them as a conduit for social anger at the ongoing economic collapse: a screenplay well known since a certain Beer Hall Putsch.

This kind of thing could happen here. The Marxist would love to be make a very public arrest of the ‘extremist & racist’
Didn’t they arrest Hitler way back when? Only hastened his rise to power. Greece is on the brink, and has been for a while.
From the comments on ZH:
coming to a Tea Party near you
(have you noticed a change in the anti Tea Party rhetoric of late from Obama and GOP leadership - Tea Part has evolved from uneducated low lifes in flyover country into extremists, fanatics and anarchists)
How long before Obama starts arresting his opponents?
Gore, and others on the Left, have already called people like Sen. Cruz terrorists. He might as well label them Enemies of the State.
Anarchy is a state of mind of loving big government when one is part of big government, as in ‘only if we do it’. It is a state of conflict of interest. The anarchists is the government arresting leaders of freedom
Seems the message here is... don’t kill an aspiring rapper.
“Justice, stability, without elections,”
Or campaign against illegal immigration.
The thing here is, the suspect rapper killer was a party sympathizer and they arrest the party leaders. I connect that to the way every time there is a crazy killer over here the media speculates that the tea party is to blame.
It probably maps pretty well to the rhetoric King George used to describe the colonialists in the period just before the Revolutionary War.
The leftist communists strike back in a squabble among socialists.
Greeks from the right need not apply....
The Golden Dawn are neo nazis.
Golden Dawn meets Hermann Goering’s definition of fascism: nationalism plus socialism.
“the party’s leader, spokesman, two other lawmakers and 10 members were arrested on charges of founding a criminal organisation”
Pavlos Fissas, who bled to death after being stabbed twice by a party sympathiser.
“Golden Dawn, which was officially recognized as a political party in 1993”
They sure did wait a long time to decide it was a criminal organization. The rapper wasn’t even stabbed by the leadership.
I don’t agree with Golden Dawn but what happened to them doesn’t look good for other organizations. Government may suddenly decide they are criminal, too.
After Breivik went amuck in Norway, the police cracked down on conservatives.
A little later on, it’s pretty obvious that Breivik was run by the left.
Same process globally.
America and the once Christian western nations are sinking into the evil of beliving the great delusion God has sent to deceive all them that believed not How that Jesus Christ was crucified for our sins and rose again the third day for our justification. He gave us the Word of God to keep us from these days of evil by doing His good Word and will so that we may live in peace. My guess is that we are seeing the return of the Days of Noah, spoken of by Jesus concerning the latter days preceeding His return for the church beginning the 7 year period of the rule of Satan’s man, the anti Christ. [See verse 37 below.But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.]
Mt.24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

A government which can arrest neo Nazis because of what a sympathizer did, can arrest ANYONE they consider to be opponents of the Established Order.
Arguing Euro left and right is a tar baby argument that you have no hope of winning because the words don’t mean the same things in continental Europe as they do in English speaking nations.
Pym Fortyun was the “far right” Dutch politician murdered by a muslim. Fortyun was a flaming homosexual who held some conservative stances by Dutch standards. By our standards he would have been marginally to the right of Obama.
I dated a Serbian woman who thought she was quite far left until she came here and found herself to be more comfortable with people who are right to right moderate.
