Charity of the Golden Dawn. By Nikos Michalopoulos
Via LEFTeria (Το κείμενο στα Ελληνικά)
Has there been a lot of talk lately and a lot more as the situation in the country worsens for moves “charity” of Chrysafgiton [Greek for Dolden Dawn-Far Right Similar to GoldenDawnists]. Groceries, soup kitchens, food distributions, everything from Greeks for Greeks.
Perhaps all this is something new for us but it is common practice everywhere the fascist formations, showing an “other person” to approach societies. Because of course the true face of fascism, nobody wants to see it. Neither course the fascists to show it.
We will not talk about the Greek philanthropy events and ways that the reaction is treated as the Greek society lived ’50. Here we are dealing with something different from the “Charities” of the bourgeoisie and the “pauper Korassides” of Frederica.
Here we are dealing with the continuous effort of “fairness” practices of racist violence organization in the eyes of society. Its purpose is to create a friendly climate in public opinion, attracting new members and eventually social acceptance. Like all likeminded Golden Dawn did. And they do.
Carnage “better health” dead.
“From kindness and brotherly love is made the quality of my soul. Selfless, patriotic service has my mind and unerring aim of the heart. Might live, not for ourselves but for others” is the motto of my life, the supreme My ambition and my ornament. I love my fellow man and I have fought all my life for this. And this is something that makes my life a selfless, beneficial service. “Colonel William Joseph Simmons, who left us these words, he was the founder and first Chief Magistrate of regenerated and harder Ku Klux Klan in 1915.
It was the time when the crime explosion brought sudden rise of the Ku Klux Klan the 20s. Crimes committed in the name of racial purity and patriotism was miserable. Hangings, floggings, amputations, asphalting feather, kidnappings, burning with acid, together with a new scare tactic, the burning of crosses.
The Klan had become a clear threat to their color. A public danger.
According to the Institute Tuskegee, more than 4700 people massacred between 1882 and 1959 campaigns terrorism of the Ku Klux Klan. Killed The number of lynchings in the history of the United States exceeds the number of people killed in the horrific attack on Pearl Harbor (2333 dead) and Katrina together (1836 dead).
“Social Networks” of the Ku Klux Klan?
The book “History of the Ku Klux Klan,” Colonel Winfield Jones, 1921, (pp. 88-89) lists a total of 19 ‘humanitarian events “of the CCP between 1920 to 1921.
These range from donations to widows police and the Red Cross to orphanages. Even small amounts like “on November 24 in Henderson, Texas. Fart gave $ 50 in two negroes who were in poverty.” The bonus “the large to the small,” as they called them then colored.
Indicative of this activity is that on the same period in Atlanta alone, Klan lends $ 15,000 in occupations that need capital for their businesses. The Klan loaned many more thousands of dollars in occupations across the country. (Here we can not think associatively, connecting the extreme right with the gang of loan sharks in Thessaloniki, which was dismantled in January 2012).
In the book “The Hooded Americanism, History of the Ku Klux Klan”, by David M. Chalmers, also read several examples of “racist charity.”
The Klan donated Bibles made contributions to hospitals, schools, gives flags … Also in York, Pennsylvania, held two rations with meat and soup for the (white) victim of the recession. Racists also gave money to the Red Cross. (Page 306).
The Red Cross accepted the “fee” as may be perceived to be the “return tariff” for the workload of hospitals because of the pogroms of the CCP.
Leafing through newspapers New Hampshire Sunday News (29 Μαΐου 1983), Daily Pantagraph (17 Σεπτεμβρίου, 1924) and the book “Hoods: The Story of the Ku Klux Klan”, by Robert Ingalls (p.39) we read about a new type “beneficence.”
The members of the CCP, invaded filled churches, mostly Baptist, a military formation as a company. After interrupting the operation, demonstrating strength and “charity” arrogance, left money and exited drawn.
Believers, black Baptists had no room to not accept the “contingent charity” racists, who discontinued the guts function to their … filodorisoun.
Indeed, in Galesburg, a coordinated body of 100 men with hoods and robes, left along with $ 65 in Pastor and the following note, “The Klan is your friend.” In case you had forgotten me ..
Baskets full of food and propaganda
From the book “The Ku Klux Klan in the City, 1915-1930,” by Kenneth Jackson, 21 fishermen “charities” from 1918 to 1939.
Characteristics (pages 46,70,81,149) we learn that the Klan gave money for black victims of an explosion. (Which is likely to have caused the same), distributed groceries and Christmas baskets.
Also made a much-publicized donation, the House of African American Elders. Lucky, you might say, the inmates of the House. At least these African Americans managed to grow old.
First pogroms and then the charity
We quote from the “Women of the Klan”, by Kathleen M. BLEE. “The main areas of work for the first efforts WKKK (Ladies Annex CCP) was in Americanism, education, public entertainment, law, education of children and minors, citizenship, civic education, enforcement law, disarmament, peace, and politics. ” (Page 28)
Reading this manifesto earlier, for all this “offer” racist organization, without “inclusive” even in the dark, lest it seems that eventually even the Ku Klux Klan, is leftmost of the Golden Dawn?
Now let us talk seriously, there is nothing benevolent in a criminal organization responsible for carnage victims. If we read the Labor Press of the time on the pogrom in Carteret, solved all our questions.
Robert Mainor, a white Communist, he wrote about the city of Carteret, in 1926, “in which gunmen white led the entire black population out of town, burned a black church and generally made an organized reign of terror of the kind when America recorded as “racial riots” and why the old Russia, the Czar dead today, it’s called pogroms “(see Robert Minor,” After Garvey – What? “Workers Monthly, May 1926).
The title of the photo, which is from 1926, reads: “Help us to rebuild the church of Negroes in Carteret”. Exactly the same church, the same people burned, during the pogroms.
What is it and what does (socially sensitive) Ku Klux Klan?
However, the purpose of a racist organization is not only the pogroms, but also “training” our “right way.” The CCP wants “to combat the wave of crime. And get rid of the governments of dishonest politicians. Reforming the clans in the southwest, is focused on personal behavior rather than institutional change to “law and order” rather than social improvement. ” (The KKK in the Southwest, Charles Alexander, page 21)
“What can be said about the repressive regime imposed? The Stanley Frost, from his observations in Oklahoma, finds that the Klan is working on public ethics in conducting an effective movement against crime with organized public opinion behind law enforcement. ” (From the same page 81) As can be appreciated from the quotations, the rhetoric of “self-appointed saviors” of each society remains exactly the same.
In the aforementioned books, we also anatrexoume several reasons that were emitted during the “charity events” against unpatriotic politicians who betray amerikanikotita and the country itself.
Still worth pausing the oppression exercised by the Klan and frail members of the white community, youth and women through an extreme activism, alongside the “charity”.
In Montgomery, banned the movement of white women in specific areas, lest they approach the camp Sheridan and … sin. In Gainsvile of Florida, the CCP dissolves the city’s nightlife, so you do not distract the students of the local University. (The Golden Dawn has not suicidal to do something similar. Though dissolve the nightlife will be unemployed).
And as for the acts of social sensitivity, our analyzes better the Robert Goldberg, The Ku Klux Klan in Madison, 1922-1927, ekd.1949.
“To offset the violent acts of the KKK participated in charitable activities. In 1922, members of the Klan gave $ 25 each, for the Volunteers of America and the African Methodist Episcopal Church, an offer that as the organization said, proved Clan that was not black. “
And still quite revealing Goldberg, 1949: “With the charitable activities the CCP attempts to demonstrate that commits the nation’s prosperity and that serve as an effective public relations machine to create a more favorable public opinion and to attract new States “.
The Nazi past
In Nazi Germany, there was the Winterhilfswerk, the “Winter Relief”, which was an annual event Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (Welfare of the National Socialist People’s Party) to help finance the “charity” project.
Began in 1933 and ended in 1945, and was from October to March. Designed to provide food, clothing, coal and other essentials, only to Germans.
The contributions were not entirely “voluntary.” The Nazis were relentless in their efforts to make every German citizen to give his share of the WHW and the Party. In fact those who “forgot” to give, they entered a special nominal list. And persecuted.
It might say. Not before though. Come from the past. And here in front of us in a continuous press reports.
In the News BBC, Thursday, Dec. 9, 1999, we read the following news: “Research for charity with alleged link to neo-Nazis.” Andy Hosken of bank accounts of the two charities have been frozen by the Charity Commission because of classes that may be linked to neo-Nazi organization. The Commission argues that investigating on several aspects of financial management of the two charities, the trust St Michael the Archangel and St George’s Educational Trust. But commissioners say charities only promote universal literature and have denied they are used to divert money to extremist groups.
Here we should note that there are European Union countries, like the UK, where a neo-Nazi party, can not make propaganda through charity and funds that obtain or provide money, prosecuted.
‘A similar publication, we find and also British and conservative, Catholic Herald. Thursday, August 2, 2012
And the “charity” of the Ku Klux Klan today?
On Aug. 21, 1998, we read in an article by Timothy R. Brown from the Asosieintet pressed and entitled “Image Defence Klan: Philanthropy Group”, that in the Hattiesburg Mississippi, the Ku Klux Klan not delivered threats nor dropped firebombs.
The local group of Klan distributed fruit baskets and gave cash to poor for Christmas, told us main Klansman, who has assumed the defense of a Klan leader who is in prison as a perpetrator of a brutal murder in 1966.
The defenses of the lawyer representing the murder of a man, are baskets with fruits and money to the poor. How convenient offsetting.
Continuing in the USA, we stand on an issue that is displayed throughout the summer of 2012, the information network. Read about in text by Reported Citizens of Atlanta, as posted on the Internet Tuesday, 12 June 2012, that the Ku Klux Klan wants to “adopt” a highway in Georgia.
The “Adopt a highway” allows socially oriented organizations help clean up part of the highway in exchange for free advertising along the road. That is, the CCP will be able to advertise their organization and increase its participation in public land for free.
The Harley Hanson, leader of the Klan in Georgia says: “I love my tribe. Did I do wrong I’m proud to be white?”.
Residents of Georgia, said they did not want a highway funded by taxpayer money, become advertising space an organization that has murdered, maim and terrorize the American people for 150 years. The CCP
is a civil organization. Is a domestic terrorist organization, resulting in their communications.
“That will come later, is going to let neo-Nazis or the Taliban or al-Qaeda adopt highways?” Said Commissioner of Government Representative, Tyrone Brooks …
The citizens of Atlanta, finally asked the Department of Transportation of the State of Georgia to reject the application of the CCP, which called for “adopt” a highway. The announcement ends with the phrase “the terrorists have no place on the sides of our highways.”
Cleanliness is half nobility. Members of the Ku Klux Klan, they take part in Earth Day, 1990.
The fraud of Fascism
The disguise of the Ku Klux Klan, the British National Party, the Golden Dawn and any other wolf, a sheep, not deceiving us anymore. Why is an obvious scam.
In closing, I would like to quote a short passage from someone who understood very early, fraud fascism. And recorded.
“Study the coalition between capital and the working class that is fascism and consider the history of past coalitions. Peruse the intelligent way in which small dress ideas with big words. Peruse his propensity for duel. Genuine Brave men do not need of duels, only cowards constantly entangled in duels to prove they are brave.
The fascist dictator had announced that he would see representatives of the press. All responded. We got together in the classroom. Mussolini was sitting in his office and read a book. His face did it again the usual grimaces. He played the role of dictator. Being a former journalist, he knew how many readers will nibbled by the testimony of all who were in the room. Therefore remained absorbed in his book. Read already imaginary lines of two thousand newspapers in which they wrote their hundred correspondents. “As we entered the hall, the dictator Melanochiton did not stop to read, so focused was, etc.”.
Tiptoe went and stood behind him to see what book he read so interesting. It was a French-English dictionary-which he held upside down. “

Unfortunately for every move of “charity” of these organizations, with the hoods, there will always be some people skeptical.
“Oh, we, members of the Klan cherish the Earth-just hate most people on it!”
