Bomb Blast Outside Golden Dawn Office

Bomb Blast Outside Golden Dawn Office

A bomb planted outside the office of the far-right Golden Dawn party outside Athens destroyed part of the building but no one was injured in the early morning blast on Dec. 4, police said.

The explosion, caused by a home-made explosive device that appeared to contain dynamite, occurred before dawn at the party’s office in the town of Aspropyrgos, authorities said.

The blast caused significant damage to a shop on the ground floor of the building and to the party offices on the first floor. It also blew out windows of several nearby stores, the Associated Press reported.

Golden Dawn, which has a virulently anti-immigrant stance and has been accused of attacking immigrants, won 18 seats in Parliament in June and some of its members, including lawmakers, have embarked on campaigns against blasphemy and pushed vehement nationalist positions, drawing fire from critics.

The party denies accusations that it is behind a wave of violent attacks against immigrants. It has also been accused of demanding lists of foreign children who attend daycare or kindergarten schools, and of pressuring local businesses to fire foreign workers and hire Greeks instead.

The PASOK Socialists, one of the three parties in the ruling coalition, has called for the party to be outlawed, even though it is legally in Parliament. Golden Dawn’s ascension in polls, to near 14 percent in some, has polarized Greek society between its critics and adorers, and some of its members recently clashed with Leftist opponents in a street battle.

    Shame no one was present. These useless scumbags should have been flushed with the afterbirth. 

  • The maverik

    Why they are scumbags??? Is it because they want to clean Greece from corruption??? I understand your frustration but you should address that to Pasok and all its corrupt members who bankrupt the country and killed scores of innocent people for no fault of their own other than not been able to provide for themselves and their families…Wake-up George, Pasok ruined the country and caused a massive crisis the people cannot handle it anymore…We are paying for what have been looted from us by these corrupt politicians from Pasok and their parasites and some have paid with their lives too…I am not defending their actions if it is proven they are guilty but I believe pasok party and its politicians past and present should be outlawed, dismantled and dissolved all together…Pasok have created corruption in the country and looted all its wealth leaving nothing other than crumbles…People have committed suicide, some are left homeless and others left the country all together seeking a better future leaving behind their loved ones…Golden Dawn risen to power because people have no alternative choice…What we have witnessed from this crisis never happened before in this scale…Pasok party is bigger than the mafia…Pasok are killers in real terms…

     My comment that Golden Dawn are scumbags has nothing to do with Pasok or any other party, leader or person at all. I am addressing the Golden Dawn directly and this should not be confused with anything or anyone else. They are scumbags and the entire lot of them are the most useless,embarrassing, uneducated group of cunts this country has ever seen. They dare to call themselves pure Greek and only pure Greeks have a right to be here, etc. Meanwhile they are practicing and encouraging violence, bullying and aggression on anyone who is not one of them. They are a gang, not a political party and they should be taken out and dealt with as the criminals and misfits that they are. Listen up fools and gullible ingrates who follow them or think of them as heroes, THEY will be the ones to take down this country and no one else.
    Regardless of the problems this country faces and we all know there are plenty, NO person or group can be allowed to inflict harm through violence or any other criminal action against another person or group of people for ANY reason, regardless of their nationality, sexual preferences, political leanings or for any other reason. History has shown the world that in times of struggle and oppression, the rise to power of ultra right wing nationalism only has led to enormous catastrophe and even bigger failure. People of Greece, dont be poisoned by the apples of their temptations and dont fall victims to their Utopian ideals. Beneath the surface lies a very dark and dangerous plan and the policy of fear, hatred and violence must never take root in this country or any others. Haven’t we learned enough from this in the past?
    Golden Dawn must be opposed and stopped. Anyone who supports them needs to WAKE UP and realize the answers lie within us, not within a black political hate party.

    Golden Dawn is now the 3rd biggest political party in Greece, according to all mainstream opinion polls. Support for Golden Dawn has doubled since the June 2012 election, where they polled 7% of the national vote. Golden Dawn is now on average polling 14% of the national vote.
    Are you saying you would like to murder 14% of the Greek population?
    Golden Dawn have seen their popularity increase by over 1% per month since the May/June 2012 national elections. At the same time all other political parties are shrinking by the month! Even SYRIZA has stagnated.
    Golden Dawn will soon govern Greece. Bomb attacks like this may cause some people to out of fear stay away from GD offices, but it will at the same time gain much sympathy for Golden Dawn and will add to their skyrocketing popularity!!!
    GOLDEN DAWN is the future for Greece, & other European nationalists will soon follow the successful Greek nationalist model of Golden Dawn!

     You are either brainwashed or demented. Good luck with all that.

  • johnhay

    As long as you’re passing on allegations, why not accuse them of bombing themselves? If they’re truly left-wing loons like the socialists-turned-fascists of Italy and later Germany, that would be right out of their playbook. 

  • johnhay

    When you say “they should be taken out and dealt with as the criminals and misfits that they are,” you sound exactly like the Golden Dawn talking about illegal immigrants flooding the country.

  • johnhay

    I like how you slip in “mainstream” to try to make the polls sound somehow more valid. They’re a distant third, but if the press keeps hammering them as Nazis and ripping them, they’re only legitimizing them and driving more desperate Greeks into their arms. Socialism leads to fascism as night follows day and people keep moving father to the left.

    all greeks should fight against these nazis both peacefully and violently.  shame on Greece for allowing nazi’s back in their country after what they went through in World War 2.  I have no doubt these golden dawn nazi cowards are descended both genetically and ideologically from the greek collaborationist, also known as the security battalions, who fought alongside the german nazis.  shame on golden dawn and those voting these people in power.  

  • ivas4

    you are a nazi MSMlies

  • Alcibiades

    I totally agree with you George.  I personally found your reply to The Maverick to be insightful, informative, and prophetic.  God forbid they ever come to power.

  • Cypriot

    You’d have to be in denial to think that you aren’t.

  • Cypriot

    As much as I don’t think violence is the answer to Greece’s problems, and as much as I don’t support the anti-freedom stance of XA, immigration has become a severe problem in Greece and must be resolved urgently. The unemployment rate in Greece is ~25% and the number of immigrants in Greece is at about 10%. I’m not sure how many of this 10% have jobs, but I’m without doubt that if those 10% were erradicated from Greece there would be more jobs for the Greeks. You might be an immigrant for all I know – naming yourself George means nothing online – hence could be your distaste for XA.

  • majordizaster

    all greeks should support the Golden Dawn!

  • Sashiii

    Golden dawn is the only force against international banks and globalists in Greece, I can only imagine the unbelievable challenges Golden dawn faces, media is 100% negative to them, labeling everything they do as “nazist” “fascist” “racist” as multicultural media always label organisations of white people that resist multiculturalism of course, But golden dawn also deals with trying to protect old Greeks, young greeks from increasing virulence anti-Greek racism.

    As well as being attacked by leftist motorcycle gangs beating down anyone with a Golden dawn t-shirt, and now the leftist has turn to using islamic terrors style attacks.
    The heroism of Golden dawn members cannot be understated. Fighting against the economic, political and medial elite for the survivial of their people.

    And the smear, imagine being called “neo-nazi” for trying to save your people from genocide!
    Imagine being called racist for opposing goverment racial laws discriminating against your people(affirmative action) as well as the massive anti-white violence spreading thru every multicultural society.
    Imagine being called fascist for opposing the actual fascist of EU!
    Imagine being called “thug” when your members are being beaten down by motorcycle gangs of leftist armed with baseball bats and knives.

    Oh, by the way, I recently saw George Soros, the billionare zionist would start a program to feed only immigrants in Greeks.. Remember when Golden dawn feed only Greeks and was called “nazi” for feeding only white people? Anyone think multicultural media is going to call George Soros a nazi for only feeding brown people?

  • Sashiii

     Wait.. So you are brainwashed if you think the opposite of what the mainstream media, political correct elite, and rich people think? I think you need to look up the definition of brainwashed, the definition of brainwash is not thinking for yourself.

    A hint * This is multicultural media, Golden dawn is an anti-multicultural party. If there is any fragment of objectivity in you. You will understand that multicultural media is not an objective source on Golden dawn, mkay? Multicultural media hates Golden dawn.

    He said the polls were mainstream to show that said polls were conducted by well-known polling firms that have credibility as to the sampling methods.

    You can cheery-pick non-mainstream polls to make a party look bigger than it is.

    “They’re a distant third”

    Not so distant a third when you consider this poll showing Golden Dawn with 14.6% of the vote and the top two parties around 20%:

    Openly wishing for the deaths of your political opponents, George?

    And they say Golden Dawn are the “violent” ones!

    With regard to Golden Dawn there is a Marxist policy of population replacement all across Europe, many cities now resemble the third world, where the indigenous population are being pushed out and replaced by foreigners, mostly third world people, this policy is celebrated by politicians and any dissenters are arrested and charged with so called hate crimes.

     The reality of the failure of these artificially created societies is kept from the people through a complicit media and state and media intimidation of truth tellers, although the internet has woken up many people. It’s the indigenous population that face persecution, inequality, oppression, and left wing hate and tyranny. Many immigrants know their elevated status and take full advantage of it, rubbing it in the noses of the indigenous population, which causes greater anger and resentment and a deeper fracturing of society. These Marxist do not hide their genocide agenda, one very senior front bench politician of the last far left Labour administration in the UK stated that ‘the British as a race aren’t worth saving’.

    Others stating that they have no problem with there being no indigenous people in Europe in the future, and that is one purpose of mass immigration, there are many others. Golden Dawn know all this full well and are fighting to secure their nation for their people, demonising them with the old tired and desperate Nazi and fascist label doesn’t wash anymore, they’re fighting for the continued existence of their people, identity, heritage, and culture, and doing so the only way they can because they know their political parties do not serve them, to hate them for doing this makes you the racist and a supporter of genocide.
