What is particularly concerning is that it is quite likely after Sunday's election that a new election will be called soon after as there is so much disagreements among parties and so many parties that no coalition is likely to form unless a miracle happens for PASOK and New Democracy which is unlikely considering those two parties are blame for the crisis. It is likely they stand to gain even more during ensuing political chaos and potentially with the other far-right parties in Greece form Europe's first fascist government in decades. (this is a bit more far fetched, but not inconceivable)
Being the ever curious sun of a gun that I am I investigated the group a little further and found a Youtube Channel which seems to go beyond the thresholds of Greek nationalism and seems to be aimed at revolt against immigrants across all of Europe. See the following video (cleverly strung together with your favorite Hollywood blockbusters...):
I know the timeline predicts the eventual Islamification of Europe, and this seems to be following the prediction, however the violence is getting pretty unprecedented pretty fast. I think the real wake-up to the world of the rise of the far-right in Europe was the Norway attacks that occurred last year. How fast do you guys think the far-right is going to rise in Europe? Is it possible that we could see a revival of racist and supremacist politics and even neo-fascist governments in Europe this decade? Will the Golden Dawn cause spread beyond Greece to Spain and Italy due to their economic malaise as well? Could the spread even make its way to the rest of the western nations like America, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand in the farther future depending on their immigration policies? Is this the beginning of a major clash of civilizations, or a continuation of it if you consider the War on Terror and 9/11 the start?
All thoughts are welcome. We are heading for a historic night in Europe on Sunday with the French election, and perhaps more importantly... the Greek one...
