You will need to give the quote. I heard him say something like 'don't come for a black man' if that is what you are meaning, but in the circumstances I do not find that racist. He is talking about Golden Dawn attackers.
Shortened your comment for spacial purposes.
Starting from the fact that he is calling his group the black panthers and ending with the fact that he said he will wipe them off the face of the Earth, that's pretty much racism and genocide right there. Even if he is talking about racist people.
It's not my problem he couldn't get Greek citizenship and it doesn't give him the right to be pissy about it. He is an illegal immigrant and has been for nearly 28 years. He says he considers himself greek yet doesn't care enough about that statement to try and get citizenship. Since he was 18, that's 10 years. You're telling me in 10 years he couldn't get Greek citizenship? Especially during the happy days of yore?
I do not trust poll counting. How do they know it was from the police? And even worse, if they did know it was from the police, that's all manner of wrong. So for me, this seems like a load of non-sense.
Well yeah, I meant the entire stuff that was said starting at 5:40.
Agreed, that could be perceived as a violation of rights and it is. Not a violation towards the illegal immigrants, but the legal immigrants and greek citizens who will be also interogated. Once you go down that road and start thinking of people as guilty before proven innocent, you're in all loads of problems.
I'm not excusing aggressive behavior, I am saying that this aggression was caused because the illegal immigrants came into the country by the numbers they did. Think of it this way. If you leave your window open, it's not an invitation for everybody who wants to come into your house to just jump through the window without your permission, stay wherever they want, eat your food and then leave to your neighbor or somewhere. Let's say 1 person does it, fine... 2 people... ok.. but then if millions start coming in through my window, sitting on my couch, watching my TV, eating my food, staying as long as they want, I might get pissy, take my shotgun and just shoot them all or throw them all out the window. And I would be well in my right to do that because it's my god damn house. And unless I invite you in, you don't get to stay.
And who is responsible for making me lose my mind? The people who come in my house, watch my tv, eat my food, sit on my couch without my permission. This is of course a metaphor. Does that mean I excuse aggressive behavior? No. I just understand why it happened. And it didn't happen because the Greeks gone mad. It's because they were provoked.
Now are the illegal immigrants responsible for the fact that they are there? Yes, they went there. Is anyone else responsible? Yes, the goverment who allowed them to come in at first. If they had enforced their borders and permitted only legal immigration, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
I can't comment whether the golden dawn is like the nazi party of old. All I know is that they have a lot of racist rhetoric. The nazi party of old had a great economic plan which made Nazi germany lose all unemployment in under 2 years and become a world power with a strong military and economy. I didn't see the golden dawn's economic reform plan if they have any. That's why the nazi party was a threat. Because it managed to form a powerful nation from the ruins of the old one and also had very ill intentions towards some people. It wasn't a threat just because of the hate rhetoric.
Pro-murder black panther group who threatens to wipe them off the map. Seems a lot like what the golden dawn are planning only viceversa. Racist, genocidal group to defend against a racist genocidal group. Seems fitting. If you had actual good guys in the black panther fighting against the bad golden dawn guys, I'd actually have to feel sorry for them or sympathize. But I don't have to because they're all the same just on opposing forces.
The fact that many of your reporters are black is none of my business. The fact is that these 11min were all one-sided stories. The only time the golden dawn was presented was to emphasize the racist nature of the organization. And while I do not think that ones' skin color should have anything to do with a story, you have to be at least a bit moronic to send a person who is the object of a hate group to interview said hate group. Which is why you presented a biased story. I mean, I don't blame you, it's a lot easier to be a biased paper rather than an objective one.
Now I'm not saying that if you had interviewed the golden dawn, you would uncover the beauty behind the beast. No, give me a break. But maybe you would have presented just some more of what they were about. Maybe discuss their economic plans. Their reform plans, etc. See why they think the way that they do.
Now of course, a black reporter would have a hard time getting that.
