Golden Dawn Used Hitler’s Playbook

Members of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party called leader Nikolaos Michaloliaos "Fuhrer"
Members of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party called leader Nikolaos Michaloliaos “Fuhrer” and were beaten for insubordination

While he repeatedly denied running a neo-Nazi operation, Golden Dawn party leader Nikolaos Michaloliakos was nicknamed “Fuhrer,” and used dogma and methodology from Adolf Hitler, prosecutors alleged as they readied a case against him and his hierarchy on charges of running a criminal gang as the government moved to break it up with legal means.

The report said that Michaloliakos oversaw all decisions with Christos Pappas, among those arrested in a sweep of MP’s and members of the party which has 18 seats in Parliament, as his second-in-command. It said that Michaloliakos was the absolute ruler and organized the party following the Nazi Fuehrerprinzip dogma which dictates that all subordinates must be appointed by their superiors.

That was included in the nine-page document compiled by Supreme Court deputy prosecutor Haralambos Vourliotis which found that the party sought supporters with martial arts skills and recruited young Greeks for its hit squads. The report, sections of which were leaked to the Greek media, found that the party operated subject to a strict hierarchy, with orders being passed down from the leader to deputy leaders and subordinates.

Each local organization was led by a five-member committee headed by a cell leader who took decisions relating to local activities while a parallel five-member committee took in trainees and candidate members ahead of their official induction to the party, the report said.

And while Golden Dawn has been accused of a rampage of violence against immigrants, it also offered some of them protection in return for a cut of their sales of counterfeit goods and contraband goods, it was further alleged, especially smuggled cigarettes which are sold openly on the streets in some Athens neighborhoods.

The report did not rule out the participation of police officers in some of the activities of the organization but noted that further investigation was necessary to determine the nature of their involvement. The Greek Police’s internal affairs department last week launched a probe into suspected links between Golden Dawn and police officers.

Depositions given by two former Golden Dawn members which have helped authorities bring charges against the group’s leader and MPs showed how clandestine it was. The two witnesses were members of the chapter in Nikaia, where rapper Pavlos Fyssas was murdered by a Golden Dawn member earlier this month, police said in charging him.

The pair explained to authorities how the party’s chapters were split into small cells of five people with members having to account to the leader of their cell, who then reported to his superiors. There were regular indoctrination classes, including lessons on Hitler that denied the atrocities carried out by the Nazis, the two ex-members said, including that the Holocaust of six million Jews and millions of others ever happened.

They also claimed that any members who questioned their superiors or the party were beaten. A group of members was dedicated to harassing anyone who left the party to ensure that they would not talk about their experiences, much like the harassment to which former Scientology members are subjected.



  1. SYRIZA is openly a coalition of radical leftists who self identify as Stalinists, Maoists, Trotskyists, and Leninists. Stalin was responsible for ordering the extermination of tens of millions of innocent civilians.
    At least 50 million Chinese men, women and children died on the orders of Mao Tse Tung. The hands of Lenin and Trotsky were also dripping with the blood of innocents. Why is it ok for SYRIZA to openly proclaim their allegiance to these mass murderers? The same goes for ANTARSYA, DIMAR and the hardcore communist KKE party!

  2. The prosecutions accusations against Golden Dawn were studied by prominent independent legal expert M. Dimitrakopoulos, who concluded that the case will collapse with a loud thud. It is worth noting that M. Dimitrakopoulos first stated that he follows a Leftist ideology, is completely opposed to Golden Dawn and has many Jewish friends. The video has already received 245000 views since the TV interview was uploaded to you tube on September 28th!
    The message is spreading across Greece that Greece’s Leading Expert on Criminal Law condemns the arrest of Golden Dawn MP’s and confirms that the charges are flimsy and will not be sufficient to classify Golden Dawn as a criminal organization, nor to convict it’s MP’s!

    Ο γνωστός ποινικολόγος Μιχάλης Δημητρακόπουλος έδωσε νωρίτερα μια νέα τροπή στην υπόθεση των συλλήψεων του αρχηγού της Χρυσής Αυγής Νίκου Μιχαλολιάκου και βουλευτών του κόμματος. Με παρέμβασή του στο δελτίο του ΑΝΤ1 και αφού πρώτα τόνισε ότι είναι Αριστερός, αποκάλυψε ότι δεν στέκουν νομικά οι διώξεις κατά του Γ.Γ. και των βουλευτών της Χρυσής Αυγής για σύσταση «εγκληματικής οργάνωσης».

  3. this is all you need to know about this anti=hellenic hitler praising nazi

    The Hitler and his nazis were responsible for over 1 million deaths in Greece. Any XA nazi like MSMlies and Michaloliakos who praise hitler are NOT Greeks but subhuman vile filth.

    In an article published in 1987 in the Golden Dawn magazine titled “Hitler for 1000 years”, its editor Michaloliakos showed his support for Nazism and white supremacy.Specifically he wrote, “We are the faithful soldiers of the National Socialist idea and nothing else” and “[…] WE EXIST, and continue the battle, the battle for the final victory of our race”. He ends the article by writing “1987, 42 years later, with our thought and soul given to the last great battle, with our thought and soul given to the black and red banners, with our thought and soul given to the memory of our great Leader, we raise our right hand up, we salute the Sun and with the courage, that is compelled by our military honor and our National Socialist duty we shout full of passion, faith to the future and our visions: HEIL HITLER!”.Furthermore he uses capital letters for pronouns referring to Hitler (“by Himself”, “His people”).

  4. Cheers!

    From Greece:

    LONG LIVE SVENSKARNAS PARTI. Blessings to the Swedish Nationalist movement and fellow Nordic brothers.

  5. Before his departure, Adolf Hitler uttered these prophetic words:

    “It is necessary that I should die for my people; but my spirit shall rise from the grave, and the world will know that I was right.”

  6. “There will come a day when all the lies will collapse under their own weight, and the truth will triumph again.” – Joseph Goebbels

  7. thanks for proving my point nazi

    the law of holes

    “If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.”

  8. Paul Joseph Goebbels 29 October 1897 – 1 May 1945) was a German politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. As one of Adolf Hitler’s closest associates and most devout followers, he was known for his zealous orations and deep and virulent antisemitism, which led him to support the extermination of the Jews and to be one of the mentors of the Final Solution.

    is PhoenixRisingEuropa and MSMlies the same person? Will gr-reporter get sued for allowing this anti-Semitic racist pro-hitler propaganda on their website?

    if you are a nazi like MSMlies (the founder of xanyc?) you are not Greek

  9. Is that “Hitler killed one million Greeks” figure as sound as the sixty million Jews one?

  10. wow you’re an idiot

    the below video is titled

    Wife Of Golden Dawn Leader Spits In Reporters Face”

    nazis, keeping it classy

  11. never heard of that 60 milion figure. and yes it’s 1 million all in

    below are some of the historical events the anti-Greek nazi MSMlies and his friends from stormfront support

    “The occupation brought about terrible hardships for the Greek civilian population. Over 300,000 civilians died in Athens alone from starvation, tens of thousands more died because of reprisals by Nazis and collaborators, and the country’s economy was ruined

    Increasing attacks by partisans in the latter years of the occupation resulted in a number of executions and wholesale slaughter of civilians in reprisal. In total, the Germans executed some 21,000 Greeks, the Bulgarians 40,000 and the Italians 9,000.

    The most infamous examples in the German zone are those of the village of Kommeno on 16 August 1943, where 317 inhabitants were executed by the 1. Gebirgs-Division and the village torched, the “Holocaust of Viannos” on 14–16 September 1943, in which over 500 civilians from several villages in the region of Viannos andIerapetra in Crete were executed by the 22. Luftlande Infanterie-Division, the “Massacre of Kalavryta” on 13 December 1943, in which Wehrmacht troops of the117th Jäger Division carried out the extermination of the entire male population and the subsequent total destruction of the town, the “Distomo massacre” on 10 June 1944, where units of the Waffen SS Polizei Division looted and burned the village of Distomo in Boeotia resulting in the deaths of 218 civilians and the “Holocaust of Kedros” on 22 August 1944 in Crete, where 164 civilians were executed and nine villages were dynamited after being looted. At the same time, in the course of the concerted anti-guerrilla campaign, hundreds of villages were systematically torched and almost 1,000,000 Greeks left homeless

  12. Σε κούτες η δικογραφία:
    Οι αστυνομικοί της Αντιτρομοκρατικής υπηρεσίας μεταφέρουν με κούτες την δικογραφία της υπόθεσης της Χρυσής Αυγής στο κτίριο της Εισαγγελίας Πρωτοδικών. Σύσταση εγκληματικής οργάνωσης και εμπλοκή στην υπόθεση της δολοφονίας του Παύλου Φύσσα, στο Κερατσίνι, ανάμεσα στις κατηγορίες που αντιμετωπίζουν βουλευτές και στελέχη του νεοναζιστικού μορφώματος.

  13. Being called a “Nazi” is not an insult to those who oppose world jewry but who stand for national sovereignty, racial, cultural and ethnic identity! Your name calling is infantile and obsolete.

    Incidentaly, he was right.

    Long live Golden Dawn!

  14. well at least you don’t deny it

    is it name calling if it’s true?

    the irony of NY resident MSMlies “standing” for national sovereignty while simultaneously taking his orders from nazi germany remnants and stormfront subhumans

  15. Yes! Hate speech and incitement to violence are against the law in Greece. I have written to Greek Reporter about this problem here. Nothing is being done so far not even moderation. I understand it is a tricky area that has people screaming about freedom of speech. However, most people understand the difference between free speech and hate speech or incitement to violence.

  16. Yes, the sixty million figure is just as thumbsucked as the six million figure. So I conclude. One should of course realize that the reprisals against partisans and their helpers were perfectly legal, while partisan/terrorist warfare is illegal according to international law of that time.

  17. “One should of course realize that the reprisals against partisans and their helpers were perfectly legal, while partisan/terrorist warfare is illegal according to international law of that time.”

    nope – not even close. not surprised though by the lies stormfront nazis likes yourself spread around

    not to mention the illegality and immorality of invading a sovereign country

    but thanks for showing us though that you truly are a coward as ,if you were a civilian in a country that was invaded, you would not have put up a fight as it was allegedly “illegal”, which it wasn’t

  18. freedom of speech is not a protected right on a private message board, but g-reporter is dangerously close to being sued for lack of moderation of their message boards and depending on some geographic factors, can be found liable for slander, defamation, and hosting a message board that promotes nazism and holocaust denial. that much is a fact.

  19. Believe the impossible. Soros is a BILLIONAIRE that hates Nazis. I would watch it if I was you.

  20. This is an English site. Go to the Greek site and show how proud you are that you write in Greek. But with 27% unemployment and all the companies like FAGE living Greece you might want to go abroad for work. And if you go abroad ENGLISH is the language of commerce and technology. And if you do go abroad and they find out your a Golden Dawn guy you may have a difficult time getting a job. The world hates Nazis. Good luck in finding a job in Greece.

  21. Κανε Cut & Paste στο Google Translate εσύ άμα θες να ξέρεις τι γράφω.

    Εγώ δεν είδα πουθενά να γραφή ότι τα comments να είναι μονο στα αγγλικά. Δημοκρατία έχουμε όπου θέλουμε πάμε και γράφουμε όπως εστανομαστε. Τι γνώμη σου κρατα την για εσένα και εντολές δίνε σε άλλους όχι σε μένα. Αν δεν σου αρέσει μην το διαβάζει δεν σε έβαλα με το ζόρι. Understood??

  22. During the German occupation of Greece, half a million Greeks died, mainly from famine.
    The most notorious famine in Athens claimed the lives of 300000 civilians in a few months.
    Whilst the Germans were guilty of not fullfilling their duty as an occupying force to supply the civilian population with food, the ONLY reason this food shortage occurred in Athens and Greece in general is because the British navy put a TOTAL embargo on any supply of food or medicine or anything else entering Greece, in order to create logistics problems for the German occupiers. The Germans did not respond at all to this British tactic, refusing to distribute food which they had allocated for their troops to the Greek civilian population, and this callous British strategy cost the lives of 300000 Greek men, women and children their lives in Athens.
    Nice ally the British were!

    “For the sake of historical truth I must verify that only the Greeks, of all the adversaries who confronted us, fought with bold courage and highest disregard of death.”
    — Adolf Hitler paying his respects to the bravery of Greek soliders in a speech he gave before the Reichstag, on 4 May 1941

    On 10 April 1941, after the capitulation to Germany, the northern forts of Greece surrender. The Germans express their admirations to Greek soldiers, declare that they were honored and proud to have as their adversary such an army and REQUEST THAT THE GREEK COMMANDANT INSPECT THE GERMAN ARMY IN A DEMONSTRATION OF HONOR AND RECOGNITION! THE GERMAN FLAG IS RAISED ONLY AFTER THE COMPLETE WITHDRAWAL OF THE GREEK ARMY. A German officer of the air force declared to the commander of the Greek Eastern Macedonia division group, lieutenant general Dedes that the Greek army was the first army on which the stuka fighter planes did not cause panic. “Your soldiers” he said, “instead of fleeing frantically, as they did in France and Poland, were shooting at us from their positions.”

  23. I’m from the Nordic Resistance Movement, ! I like Svenskarnas Parti also though.

    Unity against the enemies of Europe!

  24. I heard that each Golden Dawn MPs personally exterminated 6000000000000 communists/banksters/kikes/liberals//usurers…

    Hail Golden Dawn!

  25. Soros is a miserable cretin who is one of the many ‘tribesman’ at the forefront of the plan to genocide the White race from their indigenous land of Europe. He’s the one who should ‘watch it’, especially since Whites are becoming aware of their genocidal plans and are slowly rising up.

  26. so you praise and idolize someone (hitler) who attacked Greece and was responsible for nearly 1 million deaths because he and his nazis said a few things about the Greeks who gave them hell. thanks for proving you are NOT greek.

    as for your half truths about the famine

    1) cause (your nazi idols) and effect

    2) the Greeks at the time knew the famine was caused by the nazis

    3) the nazis outlawed fishing

    4) the nazis in their scorched earth campaign burned tens of thousands of acres of farm land

    5) the italian invasion and then the nazi invasion disrupted the fall planting, and created an acute shortage of farm workers as well as of horses, tractors, gasoline, and insecticides. Railroads, highways and roads were disrupted, bridges destroyed, and irrigation systems damaged.

    6) before WW2 Greece was self sufficient proving that most of the food shortage was not caused by the blockage but by the scorched earth campaign your nazis spread across Greece

  27. not sure what this has to do with anything

    it was a shameful incident but 95% of the dead were members of the security battalions, Greek collaborationist military groups, formed during the Axis occupation of Greece during World War II in order to support the German occupation troops.

    further, most of the residents of Meligalas are very hostile towards XA nazis

    ELAS also happened to be the main force behind the Greek resistance against the nazis and the majority of the members were not commies.‎

  28. you are right there is no where it says we must use English. and you are correct I should not give you advice. But with 27% unemployment and 60% for youth you will find it difficult to get a job in Greece. So you better practice your English writing for when you go abroad you will find that English is used for commerce. My husband works in oil and we have been to Stavanger, Norway as well as to the middle East and English is what they use.
    Good luck in finding a job in Greece, FAGE has left and today another company said that they are closing shop. I am so proud of you and your writing in Greek mana mou esi tha vris thoulia amesos

  29. Τι ξέρεις για μένα βρε ζουλάπι? Είμαι σε σύνταξη εδώ και μια δεκαετία, ζω στην Ιαπωνία και γράφω στα Ελληνικά όταν γουστάρω. Λογαριασμό θα σου δώσω? Άμα θες φτιάξε την δικια σου ιστοσελίδα, γίνε moderator, και κανε ban οποιον γουστάρεις στο εντωμεταξύ εγώ θα συνεχίζω έτσι. Και ήρεμα με τα κοσμητικά επίθετα γιατί άμα αρχίσω δεν σε ξεπλένει ο Mississippi.

    Τώρα άμα tελείωσες??

    Τραβα τώρα το καζανάκι μυρίζει!

  30. Το ενδιαφέρον από τις απολογίες των βουλευτών της ναζιστικής Χρυσής Αυγής εστιάζεται όχι τόσο στο τι στάση θα κρατήσουν (άρνηση των κατηγοριών, προβολή αντισυνταγματικότητας της διαδικασίας των συλλήψεων) όσο στην απήχηση (θετική ή αρνητική) στους ψηφοφόρους του νεοπαγούς αυτού πολιτικού μορφώματος. Και τούτο διότι στους κατά τόπους πυρήνες της Χρυσής Αυγής επικρατεί παγωμάρα. Ολα τα γραφεία παραμένουν κλειστά και αυτό είναι ενδεικτικό για το γενικότερο σάστισμα στα χαμηλότερα στελέχη.

    Διότι στο κατηγορητήριο περιλαμβάνονται και η δράση των τοπικών οργανώσεων σε όλη την Ελλάδα, ο σχεδιασμός και η εκτέλεση πράξεων, που όμως απαιτούσαν εντολή από την ηγεσία της οργάνωσης. Δεν είναι εύκολο να αντιμετωπίσουν από μόνοι τους τις βαριές κατηγορίες: ληστείες, εκρήξεις, βαριές σωματικές βλάβες, απόπειρες ανθρωποκτονιών, ανθρωποκτονίες. Και θεωρείται βέβαιο ότι η ανάκριση σε βάθος θα φέρει στο φως και άλλα εγκλήματα και ακόμη περισσότερους εμπλεκόμενους που εκτελούσαν τυφλά τις εντολές της ηγεσίας.

    Η προσπάθεια να δώσουν πολιτικό χρώμα στις συλλήψεις, αρνούμενοι να απαντήσουν στο ποινικό μέρος, στα εγκλήματα δηλαδή της οργάνωσης, και κάνοντας λόγο για σκευωρία και χαλκευμένα στοιχεία δεν φαίνεται να αποδίδει τα αναμενόμενα γι΄ αυτούς αποτελέσματα. Είναι αυτοί οι ίδιοι που δημιούργησαν ένα «βρώμικο 2013» με τις πράξεις τους. Ουδείς «έστησε» στοιχεία σε βάρος τους. Η πολιτική αντιπαράθεση δεν είναι ίδιον της ιδεολογίας τους διότι μόνη ιδεολογία τους είναι η εγκληματικότητα με σκοπό να σπείρουν πανικό και τρόμο στην κοινωνία.

    Η ηγετική ομάδα βρίσκεται σε δεινή θέση διότι είναι αυτή που έδινε τις εντολές για την τέλεση συγκεκριμένων κακουργηματικών πράξεων στις «επιχειρησιακές» ομάδες της οργάνωσης. Η θέση της δυσχεραίνεται από την απροθυμία των απλών μελών να την ενισχύσουν με την παρουσία τους στα δικαστήρια, συμπαραστεκόμενα στους ηγέτες τους. Ο φόβος για άσκηση ποινικής δίωξης εναντίον του αρχηγού ή όποιου βουλευτή έχει παραλύσει τα μέλη… των μελών της Χρυσής Αυγής. Σ΄ αυτόν τον φόβο προστίθεται κι άλλος ένας, αυτός της πιθανής διακοπής χρηματοδότησης του κόμματος. Σ΄ αυτή τη φάση προηγούνται η προσπάθεια απόκρυψης ενοχοποιητικών στοιχείων και η αντιμετώπιση της πραγματικότητας, που είναι ασφυκτική γι΄ αυτούς.

    Είναι αναμενόμενο να προσπαθήσουν οι κατηγορούμενοι να στρέψουν τις κατηγορίες κατά του «διεφθαρμένου πολιτικού συστήματος» και των συνένοχων δημοσιογράφων! Λες και δεν είχαν την εύνοια μέρους του συστήματος αυτού και αρκετών δημοσιογράφων. Είναι, ίσως, μια ευκαιρία να συνειδητοποιήσουν οι ψηφοφόροι της Χρυσής Αυγής ποιοι πραγματικά ήταν οι ηγέτες της.

  31. I’m curious – I’m an American with a great love for Greece and the Greek people. It has been my experience that they’re a hospitable, honorable people. Then I read these hateful comments and I wonder what is going on? How is it even an idea to uphold any idea from Hitler, Mussolini…or Stalin for the lefties. I do not understand how anyone can even begin to defend an organization built upon violence, corruption and hate mongering. This blows my mind and I must say that it breaks my heart to see such a violent dedication to ignorance… I pray God steps in and soon – opening the eyes of the hearts & minds of the masses. I pray that leads to a complete and total annihilation of this and any other organization which encourages wickedness. May the wicked fall in to the traps they set for others!
