Cold steel ones.....


I always love it when Farage shreds those guys. He's sure got a set, doesn't he?

Not Italy, but.....

See the guy in the photo there, dangling an ax from his left hand? That’s Greece’s new “Minister of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks” Makis Voridis captured back in the 1980s, when he led a fascist student group called “Student Alternative” at the University of Athens law school. It’s 1985, and Minister Voridis, dressed like some Kajagoogoo Nazi, is caught on camera patrolling the campus with his fellow fascists, hunting for suspected leftist students to bash. Voridis was booted out of law school that year, and sued by Greece’s National Association of Students for taking part in violent attacks on non-fascist law students.

With all the propaganda we’ve been fed about Greece’s new “austerity” government being staffed by non-ideological “technocrats,” it may come as a surprise that fascists are now considered “technocrats” to the mainstream media and Western banking interests. Then again, history shows that fascists have always been favored by the 1-percenters to deliver the austerity medicine.

You got that right, matrix.  Hitler was well supported by said 1%, including many of America's 1%.  Think Ford and Rockefeller.  However, the writer of the article you link to makes the mistake of calling corporatism "free market", which it clearly is not.  Any economy in which powerful corporations are allowed to lobby for laws that protect them from up-and-comers is facism, not free market.

Austerity and Fascism in Greece: The Real 1% Doctrine


The article you linked to seems a little shady.  I got a virus warning on the link to the Fobes article and if you read the real Forbes article, it certainly does not seem to say what they imply it does.   Here is a link to the original Forbes article and a followup.

It hardly seems as if they saying the Germans should support a military coup which he points out would end Greeces Euro membership anyways.

Unless there is more to this it, seems someone can't take a joke.
