Germany outraged by Italian newspaper’s ‘Fourth Reich’ headline

Via: Raw Story

German politicians have reacted furiously to this front page in the Italian daily Il Giornale with its headline “Fourth Reich” above a picture of Chancellor Angela Merkel raising her hand in a vaguely fascist salute.

The paper is owned by the brother of Italy’s former prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, and the article – published on Friday – was written by its editor-in-chief, Alessandro Sallusti.

It says: “Since yesterday, Italy is no longer in Europe, it is in the Fourth Reich.” It argues that Germany has won while Italy, Europe and the euro have lost. It blames Merkel for failing to allow the European central bank to assist the Italian economy.

Il Giornale has been at the centre of controversy with Germany before. Two months ago, after Italy beat Germany in the Euro 2012 football semi-final, the paper published a picture of Merkel under the headline “Ciao, ciao culona” (Bye bye lard arse).

The paper has also laid into Italy’s prime minister Mario Monti – who replaced Berlusconi – for not doing enough to stand up to Germany. It compared him to the appeasing British prime minister Neville Chamberlain who declared in 1938 he had “secured peace in our time” after meeting Adolf Hitler.

Neo-Nazi Greek Politician Beats On Lady Politician On Live TV (VIDEO)

Via: The Wonkette

Well, this is great.

During a live television debate on Thursday between a bunch of Greek politicians (its broke citizens go to the broken polls on June 17), Ilias Kasidiaris, a spokesperson for and member of the terrifyingly named neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn, tossed a glass of water at a lady rival, Rena Dourou of the left-leaning Syriza party, THEN slapped another lady politician, Liana Kanelli of KKE, the communist party, twice.

This after an exchange of insults including “you old commie!” (he to she) and “fascist!” (she to he).

The bestest part of this is that it is ONLINE!

The second best part is that the reason Kasidiaris attacked the women is because they were asking him about a 2007 mugging that he has been implicated in. The trial about that mugging is ongoing, but it’s safe to say, um, innocent until proven to be a violent freak on national television.

After the incident, Kasidiaris apparently fled the TV studio, and is currently being sought by police. Golden Dawn is being given the time of day after winning some parliamentary seats in a May 6 vote. They only got about 6.9 percent of the vote, however, and rivaling parties are now using this debacle, understandably, to get the Greeks to change their minds by the June 17 election.
