Golden Dawn: Ugly is as ugly does

Also in Athens today: this spectacle.  

What an ugly start for an ugly party — an amazing show of disrespect of freedom of the media, with ridiculous rant thereafter by Golden Dawn’s neo-fascist leader.

It’s striking that of all the various shades of political ideologies currently represented in the Hellenic parliament after Sunday’s vote, Golden Dawn is the only one that neither the pro-bailout or anti-bailout forces wish to associate.

It’s actually one of the reasons Greece is headed toward second elections — with both potential pro-bailout and anti-bailout coalitions just short of a majority, the 21 seats Golden Dawn has won are off the table for either coalition.
