It's weird, really. I sit here and look at the Boing Boing article, and suddenly I flash back to David Griffin raving about Black Brothers, racism and threats to the Golden Dawn. For a moment a picture of what he's talking about almost, very terribly, emerges.
“The Golden Dawn used to come out only at night. For a street-fighting fascist gang turned ascendant political party, with all the weary symbolism of flame-waving and puffed-up synchronized shouting, individual members of Greece's ultra-right thug club were curiously reticent to attack immigrants and people of colour before nightfall—until now. Now, they’re killing in daylight.”
Continuing from my last post, I would go so far as to say this sort've thing actually does constitute a very real, very horrible threat to the GD. Your Order's name just became synonymous with Fascism in some places. How precisely does that even get fixed?
In the end, the threat had nothing to do with other Lodges, alternative views, or petty infighting and squabbles. And everything to do with evil wankers and the sad, pathetic individuals that vote for them and get swept up in the times that we are presently living in.
The world is seriously strange. I'm not sure I like this coming year... Because I think it means more violence, and more stupidity. No, I don't think I like it very much at all. I think I need to go laugh. Too much drifting in the dark for one day.
