ATHENS, Greece Greek riot police used tear gas and stun grenades Tuesday in Athens to disperse about 3,000 left-wing marchers protesting a visit by President Barack Obama after they tried to enter an area off-limits to demonstrators.

The Greeks also know that the EU is Greece's bitter enemy
So riots are a natural result.
Rioters throwing Molotov cocktails at police is the stuff TV news normally loves to show. You can bet if it was Trump they were protesting you would have seen it all over the news as proof the world hates Trump.
Does Zero know about this or will he have to read about it if/when the US msm reports it?
Indeed. Hillary pushed for austerity as State Department hack so her son in law could avoid losing bets in Greece.
If I were the Greeks I would skewer Zero.
Seems the commies in Greece will use any available excuse to violently protest. They never have anything else to do. In a way I am glad this was not all over the nightly news, because I don’t want the BLM protesters who are ‘peaceful’ by comparison to start learning from the Greeks new ways to get their needed attention.
I'd have to watch more of that TV to answer your question, but in case this thought isn't obvious to any readers, I'll mention it now:
Can you imagine how those channels would cover the news if this were a President Trump visit?
i guess these one’s weren’t paid
that’s a big no-no these days, if you want to be able to kill destroy and loot
By the logic that the media is applying to Trump for the US riots, Obama needs to condemn his supporters for these Greek riots.
can we send those cops to a few places here?
We have regular antenna TV. Every now and then we flip over to CCTV (WECTV) and listen to what they have to say about the U.S. They had a wonderful, rather lengthy discussion on Trump’s meeting with Abe and the granddaughter’s tribute.
Only about a minute or two about the problems in Greece, but at least they did mention it. Other than that and reading about it on FR, the world has been silent on the incident.
Hey...did Obama tell the greeks to stop rioting ?
The Greeks should continue to speak out.
The MSM pimps and pimpettes just couldn’t bring themselves to report that the Greek protesters were shouting “Obama go home, we don’t want you here” .... now about that fake news purge MSM!
Even the left-wingers in Greece despise Obama....
