BREAKING: Neo-Nazis Are Horrible Thugs

Greek Golden Dawn spokesman slugs Communist politician on live TV

Print Email

On a live talk show, a spokesman for Greece’s Golden Dawn Party threw water at one left-wing politician who accused his party of wishing “to take the country back 500 years.” (I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t briefly thought of this.) The Communist politician seated next to him proceeded to slap him with a newspaper, prompting him to punch her. An arrest warrant has been issued.

Golden Dawn, which received 7 percent of the vote in last month’s elections, is openly xenophobic and admiring of the Nazi Party (I mean, check out its flag!); its youth wear black shirts.

Here’s the video:

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

If we’re talking about turning back the clock, wouldn’t they be better off going back 2,000 years?

    yevka says:

     Yeah, much like the Israeli right wing…going back 2000 years as you say.

TrenchPressNews says:

Greek communist face slapped might be justified? Dirty secret might be worse…

The News set up hostile environment.
