  1. “Following this the Golden Dawn site was attacked by hacker, taking it down.”

    Are you sure it was hackers … and it wasn’t just too many trying to access the site all at once? That happens all the time.

    “One wonders why hackers would take the movement’s site down after elections had concluded. Things are a little peculiar… ”

    Indeed, there is no benefit post election.

    “Sometime after 8 PM the media again presented Golden Dawn and To Potami (The River) tied at the same percentage interval, between 6-7 percent.”

    If so, … i repeat … if so … that’s not exactly progress.
    (Don’t want to criticize? Fine, just don’t white-wash/spin this Xaameriki).

    • Apologies miss click. Anyway, even I agree that 10% was probably too ambitious. Even so, it may not seem like progress, but with the hellfire they kept XA under, it is only important that we held our ground. We will see the final results soon enough and I do feel that while they aren’t 10%, they will probably be higher than what they showed here. In any case, we have fought off that joke of a party To Potami and maintained our position. And when our leaders are released, we can move forward again.

      As for the website itself, it has been the target of DDOS attacks relatively recently so a hacker attack isn’t out of the question.

        You can track the results (appx real time) at the ministry of the Interior. I;ve been doing that all day and the projected results seem very likely to hold (unfortunately brother).

        I agree. Holding our ground was paramount. We seem to have achieved that (barely). Let’s just say we now know the numbers that constitutes Golden Dawn’s … “hard core” (Read unshakable) BASE ….that is 6-7% of Greece’s voting population.
        A little better than KKE (Appx. 5.5%) and Pasok (Appx. 5%).

        “In any case, we have fought off that joke of a party To Potami and maintained our position.”
        Greeks whop voted for that pseudo party (yet another vote-siphoning mechanism … akin to election fraud), should flush their heads down a toilet. (Had to get that out – Haven’t had my coffee yet)

        “And when our leaders are released, we can move forward again.”

        Yes f-o-r-w-a-r-d.
        Well said.

        No … it’s not out of the question … to be sure … but it was reported as a FACT here on this site.

        Frankly I doubt the service in Switzerland (which hosts GD’s site) reported a DDOS attack to GD in Greece … and then GD in New York was apprised of that fact … so soon after the downing of the site..

        Put succinctly, If it’s conjecture (that the site was hacked) … then just say so.

        Just saying
