Greece’s Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn Party Opens Office in New York City

Golden Dawn (also known as Chrysi Avgi in Greek), an ultra-nationalist polit­i­cal party in Greece, has opened an office in New York City. The party, known for its racist, anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant views, won 7 per­cent of the votein May 2012 elec­tions and has 18 rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the Greek parliament.

The party has adopted Nazi slo­gans and sym­bols. For exam­ple, Golden Dawn’s logo closely resem­bles a swastika. In addi­tion, the media reports that the party openly dis­plays copies of Hitler’s Mein Kamf as well as other racist and anti-Semitic tracts at its head­quar­ters. At ral­lies, Golden Dawn’s leader, Nikos Michalo­li­akos, has shouted slo­gans that are asso­ci­ated with the Nazis and has report­edly given the Nazi salute at a town meet­ing. He is also a Holo­caust denier.

Artemios Math­aiopou­los, another Golden Dawn party mem­ber who was sworn in to the Greek par­lia­ment in July 2012, is a for­mer mem­ber of a rock band known for its vir­u­lently anti-Semitic and racist lyrics.  

Mem­bers of the party have also car­ried out vio­lent attacks on immi­grants and for­eign work­ers in dif­fer­ent parts of Greece, and have attacked oppo­si­tion lead­ers. In addi­tion, the party has called for plac­ing land­mines along the Greece-Turkey bor­der to pre­vent ille­gal immi­grants from enter­ing the country.

Golden Dawn has also pro­posed that “only men and women of Greek descent and con­scious­ness should have full polit­i­cal rights.”

Accord­ing to Golden Dawn’s Web site for its New York City office, the party’s goal is “to pro­mote and sup­port the Golden Dawn’s nation­al­ist ideals and vision for Greece among the Greek dias­pora.” The party talks about resist­ing “the geno­ci­dal multi-culturalist, and anti-Hellenic agenda of the New World Order.”

In New York, Golden Dawn claims to have car­ried out a cloth­ing and food drive, as well as a med­ical drive. The col­lected items were allegedly shipped to the party’s head­quar­ters in Greece, where Golden Dawn insists they will only be dis­trib­uted to Greeks.

  • In the U.S.A. we have enough neo-Nazis, white and black suprema­cists. We shouldn’t allow the import of another band of them!

      In the U.S.A. we have enough Jew­ish spies for AIPAC, dual Israeli cit­i­zens, Jew­ish extrem­ist groups (e.g., ADL), Jew­ish bankers, Jew­ish media bosses, Bernie Mad­offs, Jack Abramoffs, Jonathan Pol­lards, left­ist pro­fes­sors, Weather Under Ground ter­ror­ist groups, Jew­ish Defense League ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions, Zion­ist lob­bies, and cor­rupt Jew­ish politicians.

  • good for golden dawn, this is another biased arti­cal writ­ten by the world jew con­trolled media.

    mean­while, the ADL shame­lessly sup­ports the blood and soil mil­i­tar­ily aggres­sive, nuclear bomb wield­ing racial state called Israel. One rule for the goyim, another for yourselves?

    • Though I dis­agree with the Golden Dawn (sim­ply by judg­ing its sym­bol­ism) you are right about Israeli govt racism though.

  • Pro­fes­sor James Rustler

    it’s not a swastika; it’s a Greek mean­der. Of course, I’d expect the bagel-eaters to delib­er­ately mis­rep­re­sent this polit­i­cal movement.

    they say they are anti-racist. what they are is anti-white.

    anti-racist is a code­word for anti-white.

    Golden Dawn on their web­site con­sider them­selves as ” Greek Nation­al­ists” not Neo-Nazis. Their main agenda is the expul­sion of tens of thou­sands of ille­gal Mus­lim immi­grants from South Asia and most Greeks agree. Golden Dawn is also a demo­c­ra­t­i­cally elected party. The ADL rep­re­sents less than 2% of the Amer­i­can pop­u­la­tion and turns a blind eye to right wing Jew­ish organ­i­sa­tions in Israel that call for the expul­sion of all Pales­tin­ian and Arabs from Israel. In fact Ben­jamin Netanyahu sees African immi­grants as a threat to Israels Jew­ish major­ity. The ADL and Abe Fox­man need to be exposed as self right­eous hyp­ocrites. The ADL also denies the Armen­ian holo­caust which cost the lives of 1.5 mil­lion Arme­ni­ans in 1915 in the hands of the Mus­lim Turks. Why is Fox­man silent on this issue?

  • Of course, any­one who dis­agrees with Israel is a cow­ard. Clever..
