Pictured: A racially motivated attack against a Palestinian woman in East Jerusalem near her home for thousands of years. While the media vainly tries to tie Golden Dawn to “racist violence”, this behavior goes unreported
The alliance of mainstream media, ‘radical’ leftists, neo-conservatives, racist but powerful lobbies, and corrupt politicians have been attacking Golden Dawn mercilessly. Every day the New York Times, Washington Post, and other paid-for media publishes new slanders and inflammatory unproven lies to whip up hysteria and hatred against the People’s Nationalist movement and the Greek people.
Yet just last week, the New York Times published an editorial by Colin Shindler that essentially equated protest against Zionism with anti-Semitism. Now, even the most sympathetic definition of Zionism is that it is an ethno-nationalist movement that seeks to put the interests of Jewish people over all else. Indeed, most of the 19th century founders of the Zionist movement were secular or even Atheists, preferring to emphasize biological/racial ties of Jewish people and religion after, which is emphasized by the encoded Israeli right of return where a Jewish individual born and raised in LA or Buenos Aires with no proven ancestors in the region has more of a right to live in a West Bank settlement than a Palestinian, regardless of his relation to talmudic judaism.
According to the opinions published by the New York Times, if opposition to Jewish expressions of ethnic nationalism is racist, then aren’t the (completely slanderous, baseless) daily attacks of this bird cage liner on Greek nationalism just as racist? Under cross-examination in a court of public opinion, the New York Times would be convicted of self-incriminating hate speech against Hellenes, racism against the West!
But they’re not the only ones. The racist double-standard of favoring radical nationalism for one group, but denying basic self-determination for another has infected all of American society. President Obama himself stressed at an AIPAC meeting last year that he stands by Israel as a specifically Jewish state! Why won’t Obama come out to defend Golden Dawn against the incredible hate campaign of smears it is undergoing around the world? Why won’t he come out to defend Greece as a specifically Greek democracy like he does with Israel?
But let’s not bite off more than we can chew, let’s focus on the local villains that are trying to harass and sabotage the purely philanthropic works of collecting goods for impoverished Greeks in the America’s and Australia. Let’s have a taste of the vitriol and real racism spewed by two non-Greeks, Alan Feuer and Daniella Silva of the New York Times, against the Greek diaspora members that happen to support a legal, fairly elected party and their non-Greek allies in New York City:
“Reported Golden Dawn Sightings Rattle Queens
IT was news to arouse the indignation of many residents of Queens: Golden Dawn, the neo-Nazi group based in Athens, had established an office in Astoria — or so it seemed.
The evidence was elusive: late last month, a professional Web site suddenly appeared, showing the party’s swastikalike logo set against a dark Manhattan skyline and calling on the city’s Greek diaspora to donate food and clothing to a charity drive to benefit struggling poor people in Greece. There were pictures on the site: one was of a group of men with their backs turned to the camera, wearing black T-shirts reading, in Greek, “Golden Dawn New York.”
Golden Dawn New York sightings “rattle” Queens? Are we are we the escaped convicts from “Last House On The Left”? Are we Hurricane Sandy? Are we the Chupacabra? The language alone is inflammatory, made to provoke fear and hatred of our noble cause in the minds of mediocre individuals just because the controlled media doesn’t believe Greeks have a right to a homeland. The reality of the matter is that Golden Dawn New York went around the Greek community, openly in our shirts, patronizing as a group many public establishments. The members had outpouring of support and generosity, with numerous people asking us where they could sign up! Our group collected more donations for Greece than even the local churches. The reaction was a sigh of finally , not, “Oh no, come save us PASOK, SYRIZA, and New Democracy!” (who all have offices in New York City, business executives and Marxist academia recently inaugerated a Communist SYRIZA office in NYC with ZERO protest. How many donations has this unhindered, system backed, well-funded office collected to send to the poor people of Greece? Also a big fat ZERO. )
Golden Dawn’s consecutive charity drives were going smoothly. We were so proud to help our suffering people over seas. We kept posting on our site for everyone in the world to see how much we cared. Then the diabolic communist hack Andy Dabilis told the big name papers and power moguls to do something about it! We did NOT operate out of the Hellenic Federation as was reported, however, but we did operate in other places without any problems until the media created the rattles . The pathetic attempt at a “Stop Golden Dawn” coalition was by no means “Grassroots” as the New York Times claims, but rather encouraging full-time “Leftists” on George Soros’ payroll to organize mostly non-Greek communists, hypocrites, corrupt local politicians, and racists to try and form a lynch mob. It didn’t work, but their intentions were ruthless, especially towards the elderly pensioners and poor children of Greece who are desperately in need of crucial medicine and goods Greek stores no longer have or sell at extremely high prices . I can’t think what kind of monsters would actually attempt to do all this just to push a globalist agenda, and get a smooth ride on the bandwagon at the bottom.
According to the New York Times, the Golden Dawn is “neo-nazi”, the Golden Dawn has a Swastika as a symbol. These are unfounded libels, and on top of that New York Times also uses openly Trotskyist communist “news” sources like www.thenorthstar.info as trusted “sources”, painting them as mere liberals and encouraging everyone to root for them!
Now let’s imagine for a second that the New York Times was more than just Cuban toilet paper, indirectly encouraging communist violence, boycotts, harassment of the Greek-American community, and witch hunts against citizens collecting charity for their people and practicing their First Amendment rights, while winking. Let’s imagine it was a fair periodical, written by ethical journalists, this is how the article would’ve been written:
“Golden Dawn Now Operating In Greek community Of Queens”
“It arouse the support of many in the Greek diaspora but caused indignation of mostly non-Greek Trotskyites and Anarchist street gangs, the Greek nationalist group Golden Dawn appears to have opened an office in Astoria.
The message of Golden Dawn, “Greece for Greeks”, resonates with many in the Greek-American community, who were forced to flee their homeland by a corrupt globalist government that pampers illegal aliens while natives starve, an economy wrecked by usuary and speculation, and uncontrolled crime on the streets.
Golden Dawn NYC, whose logo is a traditional Greek motif, the Meander, on a dark Manhattan skyline, seeks to collect donations to send back to specifically Greeks, a microscopic version of similar charity drives in the Jewish community of NYC and Israel where millions of dollars of aid were sent to specifically Greek-Jewish businesses that were struggling.” http://www.jta.org/news/article/2012/02/28/3091880/new-aid-going-to-greek-jewish-community
Now that sounds different doesn’t it?
It doesn’t end there. Politicians and hypocritical ethnic nationalists from other groups have gotten in on the action as well, condemning Golden Dawn despite the group expressing no interest in the politics of New York City, but rather of Greece.
Here are some who took part in the (so called) massive rally at Athens Square Park in Astoria…all 10 of them (with lots of cameras taking pictures to make it look like there was more) http://queenscourier.com/2012/pols-rally-against-extremist-greek-group-golden-dawn/
“You are not welcome in this community, this city or this country,” de Blasio said in a statement. “Your hatred and bigotry will fall on deaf ears in Queens, the most diverse county in America, where people of every race, creed and nationality live side by side in harmony.”
Leftists who applauded De Blasio coming out to support you note: De Blasio is a “public advocate” for an all out war in Iran, with American participation, because he feels it is a threat to the ethnic nationalist interests of the state of Israel. You can do a google search of him and find many of his pet projects supporting this. What is most shocking about De Blasio, is that he speaks for the Greek community , yet has not done anything to involve himself in the community, unlike others in his jurisdiction. You will never see De Blasio at Greek monuments, in folk clothing, paying respect and swearing allegiance to Greeks. We at Golden Dawn could care less what De Blasio says or thinks, however, we would like to ask why he supports ethnic self-determination in Israel, yet if Greeks want nationalism it is “racism”? We don’t ask Mr De Blasio to change his views, we merely ask him to show respect to the Greek diaspora that he shows the Jewish diaspora, and not threaten and smear those who happen to be supporters of Golden Dawn!
The New York Times did report the massive crackdown on African immigrants, targeting them for their dark skin, in Israel, although they managed to do it without the slurs of “Neo-Nazi” and “racist”. The only mention of racism in the whole article, was a protester leading the anti-immigrant push saying “this is not racism, it’s survival”. In Israel illegal immigrants will get a mandatory 3 years in a concentration camp, and smugglers will get 10 years, imagine the uproar if Greece proposed anything remotely similar. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/05/world/middleeast/netanyahu-vows-crackdown-on-african-asylum-seekers.html Why doesn’t Bill De Blasio hold any press conferences in NYC about the millions of Netanyahu supporters that applauded this measure in our city? What rational explanation is there, other than De Blasio is a racist who is targeting Greeks and tolerating nationalist ideas in other communities?
But it gets better, these hacks even managed to scrape up a Taminent approved token Greek, Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas –
“New York City, and Astoria in particular, are models of diversity and tolerance. There is no room for any kind of hate group to promote an anti-immigrant agenda in our city, especially here in the heart of our community,” Simotas said. “I immigrated to this country from Greece with my parents 33 years ago, and we were welcomed in Astoria with open arms by the generations of immigrants that came before us. This is what we in Astoria stand for as a community – not hatred and violence against immigrants, women and those who may be different from us.”
Here is Aravella, a naive girl with little knowledge of what is going on in Greece, speaking on behalf of the Greek community. But what Greeks asked for her opinions? especially ones that are this prejudiced? The only reason Simotas won the election is because she ran uncontested! Rumors swirling around NYC have even said that the established dictatorial Taminent (so called) Democratic club paid off the 2 people contesting her seat that mysteriously quit, as a favor. Simotas, in other words, will do and say anything to make connections and serve strangers with money over the Greek people. What the Taminent Democratic (don’t make us laugh) club tells her to say, she will say. This is pretty much how mr. Michael Gianaris was elected assemblyman prior to her. Stooges to say the least.
And in the ultimate irony of all, Ron Meier, representative of an ironically named group called the “Anti-Defamation League” that was founded due to the lynching of a convicted rapist and murderer of a small girl named Mary Phagan, came out to smear Golden Dawn with labels like “racist”, “holocaust deniers”, “neo-nazis”.
Why is this ironic?
-The Anti-Defamation League, due to it being a public relations outfit for the Israeli government, denied the Armenian Holocaust for many years which caused an outcry in that community. In fact, the tirelessly ADL lobbied congress in 2007 against a resolution where the United States government would acknowledge the Armenian genocide! In their defense, the Israeli government and the ADL did recently acknowledge it a few years ago, right after Israel broke relations with Turkey over the Gaza Flotilla incident. The Golden Dawn takes about as much interest in the narrative of Polish-Jews in World War II, as the ADL does in the holocaust of the Pontic Greeks. If anything, the ADL has historically been silent or apologetic about pro-Turkish revisionism of history books in the West, only breaking alliance with a government that has yet to acknowledge, much less pay reparations, to victims of its many genocides only when it crosses paths with Israel. With the myriad of problems Greece has today, most have little interest in debating something from 70 years ago.
-The Anti-Defamation League sues, attacks, and forces boycotts on anyone who dare to equate Zionism with Nazis, yet they turn around and do the same to the Greek social nationalist movement and its global supporters in the Greek diaspora. Accusing people you don’t agree with as “Nazis” is the lowest type of mud slinging, that has unfortunately become common place in much of the Western world as a kind of soft repression.
-Ron Meier attacks that Golden Dawn seeks to secure its borders, all while the ADL maintains radio silence on Israel’s massive crackdown (which some have equated to a pogrom) and illegal (by international law) detention in work camps of all African looking people within Israel’s borders.
The Greek community and other Westerners demand equal rights to the First Amendment that other ethnic communities in New York City enjoy, to support whatever movement its members want without, threats of violence, harassment, or terror from the Anti-Defamation League, the mainstream media, “Anonymous”, or international finances goons at ANTIFA/Occupy For Wall Street.
We at Golden Dawn America, demand to know why our peaceful charitable drives to send toys and shoes for impoverished Greek children and heart aspirin to supplement the starvation pensions of the elderly thrown away by the corrupt government of Greece are met with threats of violence, smears, and hatred, but this type of all too common and accepted behavior doesn’t spark any opposition campaigns from ANTIFA, Bill De Blasio, or other foot soldiers of selective gun-point globalization (credit to Max Blumenthal and Alternet, while I don’t agree with their ideas at all, at least they aren’t blatant hypocrites and are brave enough to cover this) :
