Golden Dawn Doing Irony Now

• December 11, 2012 • 9:25 AM

Among the new breed of politicians with a sense of humor, go ahead and add, reluctantly, Greek Nazis.

According to Madrid’s El Pais newspaper, the nativist Golden Dawn party is setting up what amounts to a parallel economy in Greece, including its own taxi guild, welfare system, police services and food distribution. The services are only available to ethnically native (read: multi-generationally-rooted, white) Greeks.

The most ambitious part of the system is a Golden Dawn-sponsored health service to be called, according to the Spanish report, Doctors With Borders.
