MP Repousi Now Questions Asia Minor Genocide



41476D076366892A9B69889D559508EBThe stance Maria Repousi took concerning “the congestion of Greeks” in the port of Smyrna in 1922, which she herself withdrew from the school text book she had written, was a reminder to many of her request to exclude from the anti-racism bill the criminalization of the denial of the genocide of Greeks and Pontian Greeks from Asia Minor. Both genocides have been unanimously recognized by the Parliament since 1998.

Repousi’s specific stance was revealed in a letter she wrote that was published. In the letter she allegedly addressed SYRIZA MP’s asking their support in order for the provision not to be passed. The letter was actually sent, not to the SYRIZA Human Rights committee, but to the president of the Democratic Left (DIMAR) Fotis Kouvelis, “in the framework of the exchange of views between historians,” as Kouvelis’ associates said.

And maybe Repousi has refuted through her personal Twitter account that the recipients of the letter were members of the Committee of SYRIZA, but she didn’t do the same regarding the stance she took. In a post on Facebook, she wrote on May 28 that she has reservations about the “criminalization of memory,” which, however, as she noted, “is not included in this specific bill”.

This is what Repousi posted:

“I support, as I have stated publicly, the initiative of the Ministry of Justice for the new anti-racism law and I have no reservations for any of its provisions. Any reservations expressed by me or other historians concern the criminalization of memory and are not included in this specific bill. And perhaps, needless to say, that I haven’t sent any relevant letter to the Human Rights Committee, or to any other SYRIZA committee.

Democratic Left rushed to keep the necessary distance, with Kouvelis’ associates speaking to protothema.gr about “personal views”.

  1. People like that don’t marry diasporic goldendawn fascist pigs like you VRE Alex MOUNOPANO THS GIS!

    So have the decency and marry a goldendawn fascist pig in America!

  2. This Rasism issue is a ruse to keep People mind’s of the main issues going on & PASOK & lacky Kouvelis is playing it to the hilt! ….I don’t know what the Greek People are waiting for when their own Coalition and EU is being run by
    a gang of CRIMINAL like Mario Draghi from the ECB (an ex-Goldman Sachs crook) and Legarde from the
    IMF (in trouble for financial fraud), and Merkel, Rhen and Schnable the latent nazis. — GET OUT of the EU NOW! — and get rid of
    these THIEVES!

  3. a. Its not me you retard. Its one of my fans that periodically hijacks my handle.

    b. For the umpteenth time I am not a “Fascist” nor a GD supporter (I support SAMARAS you slanderous j-ckass.

    So have the decency to marry a communist pig in North Korea you degenerate. Have you no shame for supporting an ideology that ended up with 120K Greeks massacred because of communist fanatics? Idiot.

  4. “SYRIZA Human Rights”

    Right. Now the communist thugs are “human rights” activists.

    Cold war anyone? 100 million people dead from communist thugs? If MP Repousi was interested in history, rather than frame communism as “human rights”…. she would have bothered to remember the communist fanatics that treasonous massacred Greeks while trying to help IMRO detach Macedonia from Greece.

    Far leftist extremists seem to be back to their old games of trying to silence opposing views. This time the fanatics are manipulating ords like “racism”, “human rights” and “democracy” (see “Democratic” Republic of North Korea)

  5. Don’t forget treasonous euro-communism fanatics in Syriza that are having an organism over these laws. Nothing new there. Far leftists love passing laws that silence the voices of their political opponents.

    One way I know there is very real racism against Greeks (aside from Skopian issue) is while foreigners go on about GD, they are all friendly with our communists? For instance, our communists are framed as “human rights” activists by the anti-Greek bigots at the modern British “The Guardian:”

    They love Greek communists because they see them as easily manipulated buffoons. However In their own country these same modern British despise communists and consider them fanatics. The modern British seem to have even forgotten they, along with the US, were the very ones that used to provide us military support to fight both communists and IMRO.

  6. Hey Savas did you murder any Greeks for your communist comrades yet? You evil treasonous far leftist fanatics are once again taking the side of disrespectful invaders while the rest of us fight for our country’s very survival.

  7. This anti-racist law is a … racist law (Where is the equality between the different populations victimes of genocide ?) which is pushed by racists like Maria repousi and crooks like Venizelos (becaue his party is fading away and he is trying to ban rivals).

  8. A rare insightful MP of Maria Repousi’s level is hard to find. She is aware of Greece’s educational deficiencies, especially the absence from curricula of Holocaust education. The anti-racism bill is long overdue, its passage I mediately required! Prof Asher J Matathias, Woodmere, NY-USA
