Greece Is the Word

Daniel Hannan:

Economic collapse, mass joblessness, uniformed paramilitaries, street violence, political assassinations and, now, a round-up of opposition MPs. Euro-wracked Greece is beginning to feel eerily like Weimar Germany.

The beleaguered Athens government has arrested five deputies and 15 other activists from the fascist party Golden Dawn, including the leader, Nikolaos Michaloliakos. The Greek constitution prohibits the outright banning of political parties, but the authorities have got around that by classing Golden Dawn as a criminal organisation and linking it to the murder 11 days ago of a Leftist musician.

Honestly, I’m not going to lose any sleep over Greek fascists unless they demand the return of the Sudetenland.

Any group so stupid as to use a symbol reminiscent of the genocidal Nazi's swastika deserves whatever happens to it.

The EU has insane ideas about how to deal with illegal immigrants. Basically they send illegals from the Balkans and Africa to their gateway country (say, Greece), and then tell the gateway country they can't deport the illegals to their country of origin.
Fascism is a symptom of failed public policy.

"Honestly, I’m not going to lose any sleep over Greek fascists unless they demand the return of the Sudetenland."

By which you mean Macedonia? Or perhaps Turkish Cyprus? Oh, fun and games.

The Grecian formula once went to the head of Rome.

On the one hand, they're avowed Fascists. On the other, there's this bit... "The Greek constitution prohibits the outright banning of political parties, but the authorities have got around that". Authorities should not be "getting around" constitutions. If the law can be ignored by those in power by simply using different words in their press statements, that is concerning.
Not unlike the coup in Egypt not being a coup because the Administration doesn't call it a coup.
