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.

King Samir Shabazz: Bomb White Churches and Kill White Babies

In an August 13 New Black Pan­ther Party online radio broad­cast, the group’s National Field Mar­shal from Philadel­phia King Samir Shabazz, went off on an vicious tirade about bomb­ing white churches and killing white babies.

If Blacks want to be free, Shabazz explained, “you’re going to have to kill some of these babies, just born three sec­onds ago. You’re going to have to go into the God damn nurs­ery and just throw a damn bomb in the damn nurs­ery and just kill every­thing white in sight that ain’t right.”

Later in his rant, Shabazz describes how white churches are also a legit­i­mate tar­get: “We gonna need preach­ers going into the cracker churches throw­ing hand grenades on early Sun­day morn­ing when the cracker got his hands up, ‘please white Jesus!’ Well we gonna throw a bomb in that God damn church, burn up the cracker, burn up the cracker Jesus, and burn up some cracker white supremacy.”

In typ­i­cal Shabazz fash­ion, he also described in detail how he would like to go into New Jer­sey and Penn­syl­va­nia sub­urbs to “drag some of these god damn rusty dusty ass crack­ers out of their homes, skin their asses alive, hang their asses up by some damn rope in some trees, drag them up and down the streets by God damn trucks, sick the pit bulls on them, pour acid on their asses, dump them in a God damn river, bring them back up, bust them in the head with a rock.”

Shabazz also dis­cussed the need for AK-47s, M16s, grenade launch­ers, and other weapons for a NBPP military.

Shabazz’s out­burst is the lat­est is a series of vio­lent mes­sages from NBPP mem­bers on Black Power Radio, hosted by NBPP Spokesman Chawn Kweli. On April 2, the NBPP’s Tampa Bay Chief of Staff Michelle Williams expressed sup­port for vio­lence against whites in after­math of the shoot­ing of Trayvon Mar­tin. And a June 25 episode fea­tur­ed Gen­eral T.A.C.O. (Take All Cap­i­tal­ists Out) of the Black Rid­ers Lib­er­a­tion Party rant­ing about hunt­ing down white peo­ple. He adds that after they die “we should dig them up, and kill them again! Bury them, dig them up, and kill them again, and again, and again!”

New Black Panther Post-Summit Radio Broadcast Features Renewed Calls For Violent Confrontation

A June 25 New Black Pan­ther Party radio broad­cast fea­tured a num­ber of NBPP lead­ers dis­cussing their June 22–23, 2012, National Lead­er­ship Sum­mit in Geor­gia titled “Call to Action: Against the War on Black Peo­ple,” among other issues. The NBPP is the largest orga­nized anti-Semitic and racist black mil­i­tant group in America.

National NBPP Chair­man Malik Zulu Shabazz empha­sized that the main objec­tive of the sum­mit was to empower a cadre of young lead­er­ship to take the orga­ni­za­tion into the future. Shabazz explained that he doesn’t want the NBPP to become “a one man show” like other move­ments. This is espe­cially true, he argued, because the NBPP is sup­pos­edly not just an orga­ni­za­tion but a pro­vi­sional gov­ern­ment for Blacks in Amer­ica and even­tu­ally an actual government.

King Samir Shabazz, intro­duced on the broad­cast as the group’s “National Field Mar­shal,” praised what he felt was an extremely suc­cess­ful sum­mit but called for less talk­ing and more vio­lent action against whites. It’s time, he said, “to start crack­ing some crack­ers’ backs.” He also demanded that blacks stop spend­ing their money at busi­nesses belong­ing to “Kore­ans and Jews” and start wor­ry­ing about black sur­vival. Shabazz is known for vicious racist rants in which he sup­ports vio­lence against whites.

The most mil­i­tant rant, how­ever, came from Gen­eral T.A.C.O. (Take All Cap­i­tal­ists Out) of the Black Rid­ers Lib­er­a­tion Party. T.A.C.O. accused whites of push­ing crack cocaine, HIV/AIDS, guns, and unem­ploy­ment on Black com­mu­ni­ties in a con­stant attempt to exter­mi­nate them. He said, “the white man” knows there are pan­thers all over the coun­try ready to “hunt your pink ass down” and at one point yelled “Now die!”

“Once [white peo­ple] die,” T.A.C.O. added, “we should dig them up, and kill them again! Bury them, dig them up, and kill them again, and again, and again!” In a June 13 broad­cast, T.A.C.O. called on blacks to stand up for them­selves and not go “pas­sively like the Jews to the gas chambers.”

T.A.C.O. founded the Black Rid­ers in 1996 to unite rival gangs such as the Bloods and Crips to fight against “oppres­sive” white soci­ety, espe­cially the police. The goal, he explained, is to unite “street tribes” (gangs) to destroy cap­i­tal­ism, impe­ri­al­ism, and white civ­i­liza­tion as a whole.

Much of the remain­ing broad­cast focused on free­ing Hashim Nzinga, the for­mer NBPP Chief of Staff, who was arrested on weapons charges in March, and on the upcom­ing elec­tion. While some par­tic­i­pants praised Barack Obama as a strong role model for the Black com­mu­nity, he was also crit­i­cized for “shock­ing” for­eign poli­cies such as allegedly “orches­trat­ing the dia­bol­i­cal assas­si­na­tion of our brother Qaddafi” and mak­ing a “secret deal” with Israel that if the econ­omy is not doing well come elec­tion time, Israel will bomb Iran to help Obama gain votes.
