In light of the recent developments in Greece, the resignation of the General Secretary of the Council of Ministers, Mr. Baltakos, I write this in order to comment on the totally ludicrous, ridiculous, unfounded and propounded by the enemies of Greece assertion that the “party” of Golden Dawn is the tip of the iceberg of fascism in Greece.
Our Prime Minister, Mr. Samaras yesterday helped us understand this phenomenon by saying that “there are no fascists in Greece, so many years I go around and have never met one!”.
I totally agree with Mr. Samaras, I have also been around for so many years (Mr. Samaras is less than 10 years my senior) and I have met so many fascists!
If this is not complete total agreement, then I will burn all of my degrees and papers and scientific publications and become a hermit on the island of Myconos.
Let me remind you all the facts before I proceed to publicly denounce all the traitors who claim that there is fascism in Greece.
Mr. Baltakos has been the General Secretary of the Council of Ministers since the summer of 2012, when the coalition government was formed. He was personally selected by the Prime Minister of Greece, Mr. Samaras.
Last week it became known that Mr. Baltakos had meetings with Golden Dawn members of parliament. Mr. Kassidiaris, a Golden Dawn member of parliament, publicised a video recording where Mr. Baltakos is shown and heard to claim that the judiciary proceedings against the Golden Dawn, are the result of a political decision by the Prime Minister, who through the Minister of Justice gave instructions to the judiciary and orschstrated the whhole thing.
Following this, Mr. Baltakos resigned, claiming that he did what he did in order to calm Golden Dawn down, and disorient them.
Yesterday Mr. Samaras issued a statement that all of this is nonsense and that there are no fascists in Greece, as he has never met any fascist.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with modern Greek politics, Golden Dawn is a party that considers Adolf Hitler the saviour of modern Europe, because he exterminated millions of Jews.
They hate the immigrants who have come to Greece and work here, they consider them vermin.
They hate the communists, because they are traitors of the Nation.
They salute the same way that the NSDP party members were saluting each other.
But as Mr. Samaras said, there are no fascists in Greece.
Golden Dawn is just a dark cloud, a floating substance of steam and water particles. It is an illusion.
Of course this illusion has killed people, has terrorised citizens and residents of Greece, and has received 7% of the popular vote, and 21 seats in the Greek Parliament.
But they do not exist.
The Greek Judiciary is now prosecuting some of the Golden Dawn members of parliament, but this does not mean that there are fascists in Greece.
We are all democrats, excluding of course the bloody communists who are not a problem any more and we tolerate them because they are harmless.
I want to take this argument even further. Not only Greece has no fascists, not only we are true democrats (excluding the bloody communists) but we also have extreme toleration for other cultures.
Mr. Spiliotopoulos is the candidate of New Democracy, the party whose president is Mr. Samaras, for the Mayoral elections in Athens, Greece, where the Acropolis is.
He came out with the absolutely wonderful idea that once he will get elected Mayor, he will ask the citizns of Athens to vote in a referendum.
Whether there should be a mosque in Athens or not.
As you see dear reader, we have all corners covered.
We are democrats we are mutliculturalists, we even allow to people like muslims the right to put forward the suggestion that they need a place to pray.
But as we are democrats, the majority will decide.
This is true democracy, and as we are the only true real unquestionable descendants of Pericles, Socrates, Plato and so on, any one who does not agree with our approach should go and ….. themselves.
Becasue democracy has zero toleration for its enemies.
This position that in my modest capacities I have tried to present is by no means only ideological.
It is also scientific.
Therefore, as it has happened in so many great political systems, cultures, and societies over the years, we have idoelogy and science going hand in hand.
Just focus on the strength of the statement: “There are no fascists in Greece, so many years I go around and have never met one!”.
It took me a while to comprehend the statement, but I am still absorbing it.
The first thought that came to my mind was about Mrs. Relativity. I realised that I have never met her, therefore Einstein was wrong.
How can I have a good day after that? Anyway, I will try.
The second thought that came to my mind was that I have met so many fascists in Greece, it will take me many days to recount them.
Inverting the scientific ground that if you do not meet someone he/she does not exist, if you meet many of a kind, this kind is all over the place.
Therefore there are many fascists in Greece.
But how could the Prime Minister be so wrong?
Then a bright idea illuminated my brain.
We are both right!
There are no fascists in Greece, and there are many fascists in Greece. Both statements are true!
In order to spot a fascist you must have a definition of fascism in your mind.
The results of your experiential search are then determined by this definition.
Therefore, the Prime Minister and I have different definitions of fascism. This is what causes the paradox that both of us are right, when our experiential statements are contradictory.
Extreme nationalism is one of the key ingredients of fascism.
The second is totalitarianism.
The third is a thread of populism that is nurtured by social services.
The fourth is the ban on democracy.
By this definition there are many fascists in Greece, in ideology and in practice.
I do not know what the Prime Minister defines as fascism, but obviously he has a very thin definition.
