Greek Tweeters Press Golden Dawn Boycott

Greek Tweeters Press Golden Dawn Boycott

by -

fuhrer-thumb-mediumAngry that a prominent Greek TV station hosted four members of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party on a show, critics have begun a Twitter campaign pushing a boycott of any media that gives time to the extremists, who have 18 seats in the Parliament.

The campaign was launched after SKAI host Yiorgos Tragkas had the Golden Dawners on his Sniper show on April 7. A tweet under @ypopto_mousi’s urged followers to boycott companies that advertise on shows giving air time to the far-right party. It is under the hashtag #xa_advertising and led to the advertisers of the show receiving hundreds of complaints.

Most of the companies – including WIND Hellas, Coca-Cola, Tria Epsilon, Novartis Hellas, Lidl Hellas, among others –  stated they didn’t know what was going to be on the show but admitted that in some cases, that they will sponsor segments if Golden Dawn officials appear on them. There was no response from the party and backers of the boycott didn’t indicate if they felt they were pushing censorship at the same time.

Golden Dawn’s rise in power has coincided with growing opposition from its critics, particularly Leftists, who have occasionally clashed with them on the streets. Apart from news clips and coverage of events, party officials haven’t frequently appeared on TV or other media.

The party has an openly anti-immigrant, ultra-religious, jingoistic stance and has been accused of being anti-Semitic, anti-gay and of participating in beatings of foreigners, which it has denied.

    Watching the MSM squirm brings me joy..

  • AussieGreek

    And the true fascists of the left are revealed demanding censorship of the media just like the good old days of Stalin and Chauchesku.
    Andy Dabilis you are more stupid and desperate than I realised.

  • AussieGreek

    It’s fun to watch their word crumbling around.

  • Alithia

    Amazing how the extremist on the left want to shut down the voices of the extremist on the right. But then, let’s never forget what communists and far left socialist are all about. See Mao. See Stalin.

    Mehh…..peas of the same pod.

  • Adde

    Your opponents are too strong and they are making progress with their hard work while you are stagnating in the polls because you are doing nothing useful for the common peoples ? Here is the solution to remove the opponents to avoid making efforts : BAN THEM.

    And soon, the Moscow trials !

    Erm if you are equating communism with stalinism and maoism then I suggest you educate yourself a bit more. A good place to start would be reading Marx…both his theory of history and his idea of communism.

    Skai is anti-Greek so nothing new there. Companies Coca Cola already showed how little it cares for Greece by moving its operations out of it recently. Most foreign companies offensively reference FYROM as “Macedonia”. Their priority is money not the Greek people.

    Left wing extremists lcertainly have a right to boycott any media they wish. However the more they push, the more likely the the river will start flowing the other way too. I would also note while our leftists are fighting for illegals and Skopians whereas the right are fighting for the survival of our homeland.

  • Alex

    Extremists don’t believe in democracy. In practice they support the forceful exclusion of those that oppose their views. Their definition of freedom/democracy is simply framing their political views as freedom.(i.e. Orwellian wordplay — see “Democratic” Republic of North Korea)

  • AussieGreek

    Same shite different bucket.

  • WillToPower

    Why are they so afraid of Golden Dawn being on TV? It’s the third largest party, and easily them most talked about and smeared, isn’t it ethical to give the MP’s a chance to speak for themselves (for once)? If social nationalist solutions are so ridiculous, why did they reject Tragkas’ offers to come on to debate Golden Dawn? Leftist have no argument, they can only get their way if they censor.

    Easy, counter-boycott the scum. It’s understandable why all these multi-national corporations listen to their leftist customers, the record-shattering number of Greeks watching Sniper to see Golden Dawn are too poor to buy a Mercedes or drink coca cola every day. Rich communists get their way, despite being a minority voice.

  • Concerned Patriot

    Lol free speech? You people are terrified of the public hearing the opinion of Golden Dawn because it is the truth and they will finally open their eyes

    You are wrong Alex. Coca-Cola Tria Epsilon stays in Greece, none of its factories has moved out of the country. My uncle works there. You can search it!

  • Evropa

    I wonder why this news site even calls itself ‘Greek’ Reporter when they hate Greece and the Greeks. Why not change the name to something more appropriate, like ‘Red Reporter’ or ‘The Daily Left’?

  • thes8niki

    it’s actually capitalism if a PRIVATE company is deciding when and where to place its ads.

  • Nicolette

    Well, I myself am certainly not a communist, and not on the far left, but I know what you’re talking about. Modern ‘communism’ really isn’t what Marx meant. It’s really… almost like a parody, a sick, twisted parody of what Marx wanted. Again, not what I personally want, but I feel kinda bad for the memory of Marx- he gets to be associated with Stalin and North freaking Korea, when what he wanted, really, was a UTOPIA.

  • WillToPower

    That’s the irony. When the nationalists come on to the scene, the capitalists and communists suddenly unite like the reactionaries they are against the real opposition. There are definitely more Golden Dawners and neutrals than radical Leftists offended by their presence on Tv in Greece, so why do they kneel before the latter? They see what the real threat to monopoly capitalism is, and it’s never was the hammer and sickle.

  • WillToPower

    Golden Dawn North America has asked numerous left-wing anglophone journalists that have made a new niche smearing Golden Dawn, to interview and have a civil discussion with George and Ed on the radio show. Here is the link to the show http://www.xaamerica.podomatic.com

    Without exception, despite emailing and messaging literally dozens of these charlatans, they have rejected all offers to exchange ideas , live , on the air waves and let the listeners decide what the better argument is. The reaction from the left is “we won’t debate Golden Dawn!’. Then what do they want to do with Greece’s 3rd (and possibly 2nd) largest party? When civil debate is not on the table, Leftists making that the terms, the only other choice is violence.

    But who is going to fight for the communists and Syriza during a civil war? What the Leftists want is to outlaw Golden Dawn and violently persecute Greek nationalists. Then when the Greek nationalists fight back and start winning with the backing oif the people, they will try to get NATO or some other imperialist power to interfere on their behalf and keep them in government.

    GOLDEN DAWN IS THE ONLY TRUE PARTY OF GREECE AND ITS PEOPLE!!

  • Evropa

    A utopia is impossible.

  • Jesus_Mohammed

    No, the opinion of Golden Dawn is NOT “the truth”. They are brutes. They have demonstrated an appalling lack of sophistication. The only single thing about which they are correct is that Greece should not be bullied by Western Europe into granting full citizenship to every African and Asian who chooses to illegally walk into Greece. Apart from that one belief, I can see no other merits in Golden Dawn, only lamentable and embarrassing flaws.

  • anglosaxoncelt

    Who cares what you think — Golden Dawn is the third most popular party in Greece and are predicted to be the second, or even first, by the time the next Greek election comes. No merit? Embarrassing flaws? You’re just butthurt. :D

  • TJ Tretman

    Racism saddens me. This makes me upset.

  • Jesus_Mohammed

    If GD becomes second, or first, as you claim they “are predicted” to do (by whom, I wonder, other than themselves!), then Greece will be following a slide into the fascism in much the same way as occurred in Germany as the Nazis came to power, and given the comparatively recent horrors of the Third Reich, from which Greece itself suffered appallingly, that will be to Greece’s eternal shame.

  • scrotalyser

    they’ve learnt from their hugely successful demolition of BNP in Britain, where the National Union of Journalists signed up to a pledge to never report on BNP unless the article showed them in a bad light. The government quango responsible for prosecuting/persecuting alledged racists (along with other thought crimes) brought an absurd case against Griffin & co. alledging a racist membership policy, had a judge freeze their funds in the run up to an election and when subsequently aquitted the press barely reported.
    Expect the same route to be followed over in Greece boys.
    May i suggest you stand and fight over the coming internet control wars.
    Its the last piece of the jigsaw.

  • Veritas_lux_mea

    You’re an idiot. Do you actually think Golden Dawn wants to murder millions of people? All they want is to expel all the immigrants, protect their borders, and regain their SOVEREIGNTY back from the banksters and openly communist EU. They have EVERY RIGHT to do these things.

  • anglosaxoncelt

    Voting my comment down doesn’t make it any less true. Don’t be mad if Golden Dawn is voted into power — that’s Democracy. Deal with it.

  • anglosaxoncelt

    The deliberate and systematic attempt at destroying the ethnic Greeks and their culture through mass immigration and Zionist created “multiculturalism” is far more sad and racist than Golden Dawn will ever be.

  • Jesus_Mohammed

    Veritas, you have written “All they want is to expel all the immigrants . . . [and so forth]”. However, “all they want” sadly differs from what they been filmed actually DOING. Vicious, primitive, and completely undemocratic BRUTALITY is what Golden Dawn has manifested.

    They have shown themselves behaving fascistically, therefore they ARE fascists.

  • Veritas_lux_mea

    The media is as anti-Golden Dawn as humanly possible. Please think about this for a minute. There are over a million (at least) illegal immigrants in Greece, out of a population of only 11 million. Most of these illegals are single young men from war-torn third-world countries with absolutely nothing to lose. Do you honestly believe all 1-2 million of them are forming an orderly line outside the employment office just waiting for their chance to contribute to Greek society? The truth is, they are beating and robbing old Greek ladies, raping Greek women, squatting in Greeks’ homes, and committing murder. Of course the media never reports a word about this, as it doesn’t fit with their agenda. They’d rather report on the handful of times Greeks have actually FOUGHT BACK against the invaders.

  • Jesus_Mohammed

    Veritas, I completely agree that Greece suffers a serious problem with people from all parts of Asia and Africa illegally entering Greece and taking advantage of the notion of “racism” in order to demand that despite their criminal act, of entering another country without pre-approval and papers, they automatically be shown charity and provided with visas and, eventually, citizenship. This is completely wrong.

    This is, however, quite separate from discussion of the brutal and appalling behaviour of Chrysi Avgi. There is a civilized way of dealing with the problem and Chrysi Avgi needs to start acting in such a civilised way. Chrysi Avgi’s record of physical and violent assault is unacceptable. With regard to illegal immigration, they should run their campaign in a firm, dignified, and democratic manner. As long as they manifest the behaviour of brutes, they will be regarded by the rest of the world as brutes.

    They don’t want to debate Golden Dawn because they know their plan cannot have any pin holes in it because they will get bigger and bigger and people will finally see the reality of which they face with Globalist enslavement, Communist parties, Supposedly democratic leftist parties and the plan to destroy everything European and the people themselves. If Golden Dawn was to debate any of these parties they would destroy them and they know it.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and ONLY into White countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY White country and ONLY White countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country and ONLY into Black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane Black man to notice this and what kind of psycho Black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

    It is not racist to protect your country and it’s people, it’s patriotic. GD is good for the future of Greece
