This Golden Dawn Thing Is Really Complicated 11.Dec.2008 17:10

The Golden Dawn thing is often a vehicle exploited by right wing terrorists.

But, it has no intrinsic connection to these fascists.

Just to let you know - there are Golden Dawn groups that are, for lack of a better term, ultra-progressive. It's a religious orientation that does not take left or right sides. The ultra-fascists are very good at exploiting such movements. The movements themselves are not directly connected with this exploitation. I'm not into the Golden Dawn thing. Just trying to keep the record straight here.
