NAZI BEST IDEA DUDE  9:00 am June 18, 2012

Greek Neo-Nazi Politician Suing Woman For Making Him Punch Her on Live Television

by Rich Abdill

Still smarter discussion than Crossfire ever had.A male Greek neo-Nazi politician slapped a female Greek communist politician on live television last week. We brought you the scintillating footage, which features brilliant insults like “you old commie” because Greece is so poor now that their politicians have to recycle insults they got on loan from America 70 years ago. It was disturbing footage, a sad window into Greek political discontent. We were saddened.

While it’s not clear what criminal action is being taken, there is civil litigation moving forward in the case. Hold on a minute, people who assume this will be a rational development: In a brilliant attempt to save face and repair his reputation, the slapper, Ilias Kasidiaris, is suing his victims.

Amazing! What spectacular crisis management skills he’s got. Somebody get Jerry Sandusky on the phone; he’s been doing this all wrong!

Kasidiaris is suing Rena Dourou and Liana Kanelli for defamation, saying they made him throw water at one of them and slap another repeatedly in front of whoever was watching this unbearable Greek political talk show.

From the Daily Mail:

Ilias Kasidiaris, spokesman of the far-right Golden Dawn party, said he would also sue private TV station Antenna for wrongful detention after he was locked in a room in the studio following the attack until he broke down the door and escaped.

What a charmer! But come on guys, just LOOK at how bad she’s defaming him right now:
Fun fact: The word for "assault victim" in Greek is "defamation."

What’s the deal with that? She totally defamed his hands with her old commie face. He should also probably sue those three people on the right for not giving half a Greek shit about anything anymore. Definitely Salmon Shirt Lady. There he is, trying to slap away the defamer, and she’s bored.

It appears, though, that Kasidiaris, a member of the Golden Dawn Party, is not alone in his adept ability to deny reality:

Golden Dawn denies being a neo-Nazi party, but its image has been severely dented by continuously replayed footage of the incident as well as a variety of other pictures showing party members splashed with fake blood, making Nazi-style salutes or grinning next to an oven at the Nazi death camp Auschwitz.

Ah. Well, that’ll do it. [Daily Mail]

Salmon shirt lady: Yeah, I was watching neo-Nazis slap commies back before they sold out and went mainstream. *yawn*

CivicHoliday June 18, 2012 at 9:33 am

So…she's a Greek Hipster?

actor212 June 18, 2012 at 9:47 am

Well, she clearly has a cup of over-priced, over-cooked bitter coffee in front of her, vente sized, I think.

PubOption June 18, 2012 at 9:05 am

'Golden Dawn' sounds like a Chinese restaurant.

freakishlywrong June 18, 2012 at 9:14 am

Or a secks act.

MrFizzy June 18, 2012 at 9:45 am

Or an actor – wait, that would be Golden Dong. Nevermind.

I thought she was a porn star.

This is great news for Ike Turner

BaldarTFlagass June 18, 2012 at 9:08 am

He's suing her? I bet he's really an American.

Allmighty_Manos June 18, 2012 at 9:09 am

Remember the damage Rodney King's skull inflicted on the LAPD's billy clubs?

James Michael Curley June 18, 2012 at 9:09 am

STD Ilias Kasidiaris can be cured with several shots of penicillin. But the penis will probably be lost.

Vecchiojohn June 18, 2012 at 9:48 am

Well, he clearly doesn't have any balls . . .

BaldarTFlagass June 18, 2012 at 9:10 am

Well, if Ilias wins this suit and gets the big payout, he can retire to Malta or maybe the Turkish part of Cyprus and not have to worry about the economic meltdown in Greece anymore. "Got mine, fuck y'all!"

ManchuCandidate June 18, 2012 at 9:13 am

Golden Dawn sounds like dish soap. Slogan? Tough on Greece, quick with hands.

actor212 June 18, 2012 at 9:24 am

Did you there, saw it

randcoolcatdaddy June 18, 2012 at 9:13 am

He don't take orders from no woman!

Not dyat woman over by dere, and not dyat one either!

Beware of Greek Neo-Nazis bearing punches.

BaldarTFlagass June 18, 2012 at 9:16 am

"he would also sue private TV station Antenna for wrongful detention after he was locked in a room in the studio following the attack until he broke down the door and escaped."

I'm sure this guy would have been much more comfortable back during The Regime of the Colonels.

"Examples of the types of torture commonly used include (amongst others):
Beating the soles of people's feet with sticks and pieces of metal pipe.
Sexual torture such as shoving objects into people's vagina/anus and twisting them violently, or hoses shoved into the anus and forcing water in at high pressure.
Choking people and shoving rags soaked in urine and excrement down their throats
Ripping out hair from the head and pubic regions.
Jumping on people's stomachs
Pulling out toenails and fingernails

thatsitfortheother1 June 18, 2012 at 9:27 am

Torture? Sounds like just another day at David Vitter's.

Chet Kincaid June 18, 2012 at 9:54 am

Thank you for that succinct summary of pre-Schoenkopf Wonk comments!

Sure, it's all fun and games until someone loses an eye.

This gag was much funnier on that episode of Webster I saw once: "Slap Your Papadapolis."

MrFizzy June 18, 2012 at 9:44 am

I just finished slapping my papadopolis and boy am I relaxed now.

chascates June 18, 2012 at 9:18 am

He can run for governor of Michigan now.

Serolf_Divad June 18, 2012 at 9:20 am

Wth a name lke "Golden Dawn" shuldn't he have tried to piss on her?

thatsitfortheother1 June 18, 2012 at 9:30 am

Even Neo-Nazis have some standards.

mavenmaven June 18, 2012 at 9:20 am

Golden Dawn is also interested in joining up with Glenn Beck to put an end to Glee.

actor212 June 18, 2012 at 9:21 am

Your honor, the bitch had it coming, dressing all slutty like that and mouthing off at me instead of running to make me a pita.

elburritodeluxe June 18, 2012 at 9:24 am

Those Greeks are setting a pretty high bar for our Fascists. C'mon American Douchebags! Are you going to let a bunch of Greeks beat you at the crazy??

BaldarTFlagass June 18, 2012 at 9:26 am

Imagine what he'd have done had she mentioned her vagina.

el_donaldo June 18, 2012 at 9:26 am

Wasn't the Golden Dawn some kind of British occult group a century ago? Like with the old guys in red robes doing Tarot by candlelight?

Greek neo-Nazis: all the sad trash of history.

not that Radio June 18, 2012 at 9:43 am

David Bowie seemed to think so.

She assaulted him with her arm pit

BaldarTFlagass June 18, 2012 at 9:32 am

"Oooh, 'twas vast and dark and hairy."

actor212 June 18, 2012 at 9:43 am

She is pretty swarthy. Didn't they say she represented Lesbos?

Oh, like you've never done that.

OT" Held this back from Friday so as not to screw up your weekend…

Kreep is ahead of Peed in the judge race by just over a thousand votes with about 4000 to go. Not looking good. http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entries/wit

Vecchiojohn June 18, 2012 at 9:54 am

If only Giant Douche or Turd Sandwich had agreed to run.

scvirginia June 18, 2012 at 10:59 am

Why is it taking them so long to count/ find/ create? these absentee votes? Did someone move SD to Florida when I wasn't looking?

Steverino247 June 18, 2012 at 11:34 am

Absentee ballots sent in the mail or delivered to polling places on election day must be opened and the signatures verified however they do that before the ballot is put in a pile to be run through the counting machines. Sometimes, they need to make a new ballot because the USPS occasionally snacks on mail and nibble marks prevent running the ballot through the machines. Provisional ballots take more work because we don't turn people away on election day. We let them vote and then figure out later if they should have been allowed to vote. If so, the ballot is counted. If not, well…

There were about 188,000 of these critters and they can only do so many in a day with the staff they have. There's 4000 left so I think we'll be "close enough" by the end of the day to have a result, but I could be wrong.

Disclaimer: I don't work for the Registrar of Voters, but 20 years ago when I was politically active, I had a lot of dealings with them. Still very professional and has a good reputation for scrupulous honesty. Nobody questions them, not even the local wackos, so far as I know.

fuflans June 18, 2012 at 2:18 pm

well this should go well.

Trojan Whores. Geeks bearing gits. That's all I got.

TheGyrus June 18, 2012 at 9:37 am

One look at the official Golden Dawn flag ought to be enough to reassure anyone that there is absolutely no connection to neo-Naziism.

thatsitfortheother1 June 18, 2012 at 9:41 am

I kinda like the little stylized douche symbol.

actor212 June 18, 2012 at 9:45 am

That's clearly a stylized "@" symbol and should in no way be construed as any offensive symbol at all, no way, no sirree!

eggsacklywright June 18, 2012 at 9:47 am

Aw, that's just a piece of the maze in The Shining.

Chet Kincaid June 18, 2012 at 9:58 am

That's reassuring!

scvirginia June 18, 2012 at 11:01 am

Maybe it's the 'neo' part they're disclaiming?

CivicHoliday June 18, 2012 at 9:41 am

Hmmm…"It's her fault I hit her, she provoked it" seems a eerily common message to hear from an abusive man. But the suing part is new. So I guess this means we're going to have a huge American backlash against VAWA wherein many upstanding Christian gentlemen all over these united states get financial compensation for the damages caused to their fists but those inconvenient lady bones.

DerrickWildcat June 18, 2012 at 9:41 am

I understand that they do things backwards in Greece. Like if you nod your head up and down that means No! If you shake your head left and right, that means Yes!

actor212 June 18, 2012 at 9:46 am

Ass backward. That would explain a LOT of Greek his-stories.

not that Radio June 18, 2012 at 9:43 am

Who is this guy? Dick Cheney?

MrFizzy June 18, 2012 at 9:43 am

And they say the Greek economy is in the toilet because they don't do anything useful there.

"I can't have Nazi-salutes. I'm running for president, for Pete's sake," said Golden Dawn candidate Mitt Romonopoly.

When contacted for comment, Daily Callers Munroe replied "I wudda bitchslapped Obama but he was too far away."

When contacted for comment, Danish mass murderer Andres Breivik replied "I got my start assaulting women and just kinda escalated from there. Its their fault I hate them."

Limeylizzie June 18, 2012 at 1:22 pm

I am back! I am such a tender-hearted thing, under all the snark, I just couldn't bear to see those animals. I have never even seen “Bambi” because someone told me about the death of the mother.

Beowoof June 18, 2012 at 10:01 am

Wow, this guy takes being on the offensive to a new low. I hope the republicans in America are not paying attention to this. Next thing you know they will be suing for invasion of privacy from pointing out their attempts to blow guys in Airport bathrooms is pretty gay.

In proving that his approach to this problem was within acceptable standards, he will bring in video of the the Jerry Springer Show.

I don't know if, like Democracy, Greece is giving the world lessons on how to act like republicans or if republicans are returning the favor to Greece through inspiration.

"While slapping women is certainly the right thing to do, this action solves nothing in the long-term. Unlike Obammer, my administration will make slapping women long term a priority, beginning Day One."

Greece has a very recent history of neo-nazism and fascism, so the existence of Golden Dawn and their activities are not too surprising.

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 18, 2012 at 1:11 pm

So, when it the GOP changing its name to Golden Dawn?

comrad_darkness June 18, 2012 at 2:00 pm

"It's her fault I had to hit her."
Good to know that the right wing everywhere uses "personal responsibility" as merely empty rhetoric.

to be fair though, greece's time in the sun was two millennia ago.

what's our excuse?
