How Greek Nazis Celebrate

The neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party won about 7% of the vote in Greek Elections today, according to exit polls. Here they are singing the national anthem in Thessaloniki, tossing ballots off the balcony in Athens, and yelling, "Another punch for the lesbian!"

The center-right, pro-Europe New Democracy Party appears to be hanging on to power in the early returns in hotly-contested Greek elections today, which will likely determine whether the country stays within the Eurozone.

But the country's turmoil has also been a boon to the far right, with the neo-Nazi anti-foreigner Golden Dawn party — which gained international notoriety when its spokesman punched a Communist politician on live television — receiving some 7% of the vote.

AFP reported of the party's final pre-election rally:

A surprisingly mixed crowd of skinheads, women and students applaud the elected ex-soldier who slapped a female communist politician on live television last week, after being elected to parliament in an inconclusive vote in May.

“Another punch for the lesbian!” supporters called out to general hilarity.
