Shooting kills 2 Golden Dawn members in Greece

ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- A drive-by shooting killed two members of Greece's Nazi-inspired Golden Dawn party and wounded one outside a party office in Athens on Friday night, in what officials are treating as a likely far-left domestic terrorist attack.

The government and opposition parties - all who have long ostracized Golden Dawn as a group of neo-Nazis - quickly condemned the attack, which the left-wing main opposition Syriza said "targets democracy" in Greece.

The two victims, aged 22 and 27, were shot at close range from a motorcycle carrying two men, Golden Dawn lawmaker Georgios Germenis told The Associated Press.

"A man got off a motorcycle wearing a helmet and shot them," he said

Does one of the two men happen to be an archduke?

Ironically, it was just a month ago that Greece's prime minister said his government will do "whatever it takes" to completely eradicate the extreme-right Golden Dawn party.

Golly, what a coincidence this shooting is.

Greece is still going crazy. Golden Dawn is gaining in popularity as hordes of illegals continue to flood into Greece.

I’m sorry. But when I see Golden Dawn I think of Aleister Crowley.

Golden Dawn have been demonized as scapegoats for everything in Greece. Of course it played no part in their economic collapse.

Oh wait... what a stupid question...

As I'm sure you know, the official abbreviation for the Nazi party was NSDAP. And the S stood for Socialist.

Now that's funny. You know, somewhere I still have a deck of Aleister Crowley tarot cards and his book, 'Practical Magick'.

Yep.

Here in America the National Socialist Democrat Workers Party (Nationalsozialistische Democrat Arbeiterpartei, abbreviated NSDAP or simply “the Nazi Party”, or even more simply “the Democrats”) use strong-arm tactics to remove Christianity from public view, populate the universities and newsrooms to rewrite history and propagandize the daily news, attack traditional cultural institutions like marriage, the nuclear family, and even the Boy Scouts, and personally destroy scientists and professors who do not toe the line with regard to Democrat Party doctrine on abortion, embryonic stem cells, the environment, and “global warming”.

Naturally, imposing rationed state-controlled health care on the masses, using murdered school children to push "gun control", threatening to suppress opposing opinion and free speech through a “fairness doctrine”, speech control through "political correctness", and using quasi-terrorist tactics to stonewall any attempt to roll back socialism (for example, legislators in Wisconsin fleeing the state with a clap on the back from Fuhrer Ubama in order to prevent a vote on pending legislation) perfectly fits the modus operandi of America's own 21st century Nazi party.

In other words, America’s Democrats are operating in EXACTLY the same way the original version of their party operated in Germany during the 1930s.

Nailed it! I knew quite a few Socialist academics in the UK. In a pub one nightn after a couple of pints...one said to me that he thought disabled children should be killed because of the hardship they pose to families and the state. My mouth flew open and reminded him that was Hitler’s view. Boy, were my eyes opened.

Impossible -- someone observing helmet laws would *obviously* observe any gun control laws in Greece.

I think of Hans Gruber demanding the release of his imprisoned comrades in DIE HARD.

“I read about them in Time magazine.”

And the following D stood for Democrat.

You said: “In other words, America’s Democrats are operating in EXACTLY the same way the original version of their party (the NSDAP) operated in Germany during the 1930s.”

I do not like the Democrats and Obama, but to someone who knew many real and diabolic nazis personally it is childish to compare them with Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP. This is complete BS. You could also compare sheep with hyenas.

Furthermore socialism in the meaning of the definition of Karl Marx never played a role inside the NSDAP after 1934. Hitler arranged himself with the leaders of the German industy to establish a war economy. Autonomous owned companies with a dominant government leadership. Private property was preserved as long it was not owned by jewish people. Therefore his economic socialism had nothing to do with the socialism of the GDR or the Soviet Union where most people lost most of their private property.

The thing is, that the “right wing” definition in Europe is completely different to the one in the US anyway since we Europeans combine left always with socialisation of private property. The contemporary leftist European parties want to do exactly this (75% tax, socialisation of key industries etc.). And we are not speaking about such harmless things like “Obamacare” that are practially consent among all European political powers (that also means all “right wing parties” like the CDU in Germany, the PiS in Poland, the PdL (Forza Italia) in Italy or the UMP in France).

Regards from Europe

To Europeans it is harmless compared with other interventions of gouvernments. Just imagine that your company is disappropriated because you have more than 5 employees. This was law in the GDR and many Germans are socialized that way. Therefore Obamacare can be harmless.

And... Israel Regardie?

As a struggling, mediocre artist (like many today) the proliferation of occult lodges in Europe at the time were widely available all across the continent...

The federal government just appropriated 1/6 of our economy and will run it into the ground. obamacare is a massive wealth redistribution scheme, meant to crush the middle class. Sorta like what Stalin did to the kulaks without the camps.

It is a also a massive intelligence collection operation. The fed gov will now be in possession of the most intimate knowledge in you and your family's life to be used as they please.

They have the power to withhold care if you don't "think the right way".

They are already using private mental health records to confiscate firearms from law abiding citizens.

Harmless? I don't think so.

This is a long time standart in Germany (even before WWII). German employees have to give 15.5% from their income to the insurance. Personal data is available to the insurances.

The German system results of the introduction of a social insurance system under Bismarck in the 1880s. Therefore in Germany (and the rest of Europe) it is not questioned anymore. Other European countries have simular systems. To most people here the US discussion is quite strange since most people define this as a real achievement.

You see, since both sides of the Atlantic live under different conditions and circumstances the review is different also.
