Senior MPs have openly hailed Hitler as "a great personality", questioned the Holocaust and denounced homosexuality as "a sickness". In comments before the Greek parliament, the few Golden Dawn representatives who have escaped prison described the anti-racist bill as a "satanic plot" and an "insult to Greek history".

As per AniMae's comment, there are jackasses everywhere!
"Insult to Greek history?" Where the hell was Lesbos, in Argentina?

Very sad.....all that hatred towards someone because....why? It does seem in so many countries that rightwing fundamentalism is just plain hatred. The only thing they praise is their version of their "savior"....and only in words, never in deeds.

Every since Greece's economy has gone down the toilet, the powers that be have been looking for excuses to cover up the real reason that the quality of life has diminished in their country. Homosexuals and immigrants are not the reason for the fall of Greek society. Investments in hedge funds and derivatives did that for you.

Right wing fundamentalism rears it's ugly head everywhere in much the same way. It sounds all too familiar, doesn't it.

Facism has a tendency to rise when a Country goes trough a difficult economic situation.

Looks like Conservative policy and attitude is an anachronism pervasive throughout the world.
