Golden Dawn Gets EU Human Rights Seat

Golden Dawn MP Eleni Zaroulia says immigrants are "subhuman"

The wife of Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden Dawn leader has been allowed to join the Council of Europe, a human rights organization, despite her denunciation of immigrants as “subhuman” and as the party is being blamed for rising incidents of assaults on immigrants.

Over strong opposition, Eleni Zaroulia, was given the go-ahead to participate in the council’s proceedings in Strasbourg, France. Greece’s PASOK and Democratic Left parties, as well as several rights groups had expressed objections to the membership of Zaroulia, wife of Golden Dawn chief Nikos Michaloliakos.

The Council stated that her objection to immigrants does not imply it agrees with her stance even though the body is charged with a broad human rights charter. The committee also OK’d the participation of Tamas Gaudi from Hungary’s far-right Jobbik party.

The parliamentary assembly of the council had considered a ban on the two if they were found to be affiliated with parties that are “neo-Nazi, racist and anti-Semitic,” euractiv.com reported. Although critics say they are, the Council set aside the protests.

The challenge was introduced on procedural grounds by Italian MP Fiamma Nirenstein, who said that the values of these parties were in conflict with the Council of Europe’s ideals and principles. Both challenges were supported by at least 10 members of the assembly present in the chamber, belonging to at least five different national delegations.

“Ms. Zaroulia has said in her country’s Parliament that the immigrants were sub-humans who invaded her homeland and spread diseases,” Nirenstein was quoted as saying. “Mr. Gaudi Nagy has told his Parliament that there was a list of Jews representing a threat to national security, and who were exploiting the Holocaust to dominate the world.”

In a letter addressed to Greek Parliamentary Speaker Evangelos Meimarakis, two PASOK MP’s and one from the Democratic Left said that Zaroulia’s participation on the Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, “has generated a barrage of strong reactions from European politicians and intellectuals, as well as from human rights organizations that deem Golden Dawn an overtly racist and neo-Nazi organization.”

The letter went on to say the participation of a “political party/organization that violates with its actions and with acts of violence the rights of local and foreign residents of this country” is “contradictory and tragically ironic.”

The legal challenge, meanwhile, was opposed by Jean-Claude Mignon of France’s conservative European People’s Party (EPP,) one of the most dominant in the European Parliament, who said that the pair had been elected following what has been considered democratic elections. “It is not the job of the Assembly to tell the Hungarians or the Greeks ‘You voted correctly,’ or ‘You didn’t vote correctly,” he was quoted as saying.

    I know, that’s what I was getting at, if they’re going to ban Nationalism they damn well better ban communist parties, but they wouldn’t do that because Europe is run by communists as per the European Union.

    One thing for sure I see Goden Dumb brings a Gold Age of lies and liars to Greece  where Greece does not have the guts to face the truth after some many years of EU lies. But who the hell am I with a lousy Greek name all I have are stupid laws which says I am no longer a citizens unless I pay for some lousy lawyer and politicians to fix the mess.

    It is so nice to be in the USA another corrupt crooked pile of lies that the Goden Dummies do not address except to make casual references to satisfy their nationalist rhetoric. Why have Greek politicians not called for legal prosecutions of the American corporate and politician leaders responsible for these crises in criminal actions?

    Because Greek Right wing politicians of all colours from the Goden Dummies to ND and PASOK are in bed with the American Corporate and political crooks. The Greek crisis was even a violation of AMERICAN LAW. prosecution in European and American courts of law.

    stories from multicultural media is a lie and a smear,
    multiculturalist are the nazists of our time, no white people anywhere
    can do anything for their own people without being called nazist by
    anti-white multiculturalist, these multiculturalist ironically support
    the fascist anti-white racist totalitarian dictatorship of EU, and
    support racial discrimination against whites(affirmative action), as
    well as ethnic cleansing and population replacement by
    mass-immigration.

    It is amazing how history channel and textbooks managed to brainfuck the whole world about WW2.

    There are countless speeches of Hitler where he explains in detail how hard he tried to avoid the war.

    More than 20 peace offers to Britain alone – REJECTED

    An offer for a 20 years non-agression pact to Poland – REJECTED

    Rudolf Hess flew to Britain to make one last offer, but Churchill didn’t listen and put him to jail!

    In fact Germany was the ONLY country that tried to avoid WW2.

    “Multiculturalism” is a program that is FORCED upon EVERY & ONLY White countries.

    “Multiculturalism” is a program to turn EVERY White country into a non-White country.

    This IS geNOcide. WHITE geNOcide.

    If you are White, and you object to your own geNOcide, you are called a RACIST!

    Well guess what, my people, White people, are catching on very quickly to the following two things:

    1 – Multiculturalism is a code for White geNOcide.

    2 – Anti-racist is a code for anti-White.

    “The task of the government is the maintenance of the people, the
    protection of the race and care for the race; all its primary tasks are
    conditioned by the primary duty” Religion for the aryan is race; and
    race is religion. Race is soul seen from without; and religion is soul
    seen from within. National Socialism is a joyous consecration of church
    and state, united in every aspect of aryan social life, both communal
    and individual.
