Greece Between Austerity and Fascism

Image: Members of the extreme right Golden Dawn party handed out food parcels outside Parliament on Wednesday, but made sure only Greek citizens received the assistance.

ATHENS, Greece — The European Union has been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize. But it is today’s Greek anti-fascist movement that deserves an award for doing what European states have so far failed to do — confronting the rise of violent neo-Nazi movements on the continent.

Golden Dawn’s third place in the polls

Polls in Greece show the far-right Golden Dawn party would come third were an election held tomorrow. The party’s policies include putting landmines on the Greek border to kill illegal immigrants, and its logo is a Hellenised swastika. The country’s Prime Minister and BBC journalists alike have drawn chilling parallels between the rise of Golden Dawn and the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s.

Obama Refuses to Answer About Storm Victims’ Frustrations

President Obama this morning ignored a reporter’s question about the mounting frustration victims of Hurricane Sandy are having with the response to the storm, refusing to let a question from the press interrupt a FEMA photo op in which he was on display taking action.

An excerpt from the press pool report, which starts with a quote from Obama:

“There is nothing more important than us getting this right. And we’re going to spend as much time, effort and energy as necessary to make sure all the people of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut know that the entire country is behind them in this difficult recovery effort.”

He spoke for about five minutes. Pool asked about frustrations of people, particularly Staten Island. He did not respond.

Boy, 10, Tasered by Officer Chris Webb 'for not cleaning his patrol car' during school career day

The alleged victim, identified only as R.D., passed out after receiving a 50,000-volt jolt of electricity while attending a careers event at Tularosa Intermediate School in New Mexico. The family of the boy from New Mexico has filed a lawsuit against a police officer who they say used his Taser gun on the 10-year-old as punishment for refusing to clean his patrol car during a school career day.

Police report filed by Webb tells an entirely different story.
According to the document, Webb said a group of students had asked him to show them his Taser gun, and when he pulled it out, it accidentally went off and hit the 10-year-old in the chest.
