The values of Greek People and Golden Dawn-Article of N.G. Michaloliakos
The vote to Golden Dawn is not “coincidental”
There are already election campaigns in our country, even though no one know the date of the elections. So, in the context of the political campaigns one of the critical points of the political analysis and debates is the vote to GOLDEN DAWN.
Most of the journalists agree that the vote of Golden Dawn is pretty stable and will not direct to other political parties. On the other hand, there are also those analysts who insist in their position that the vote to Golden Dawn is “coincidental”, without ideological or political aspects.
What is the truth? Well, we do know the political sphere, so these analysts should better understand that the reality is far different from their wishful thinking.
Conscious and ideological vote
The past Sunday at the 30th of September 2018, in the newspaper “TO VIMA” an article of the journalist Giannis Anastasakos was published, under the title: “POPULISM, THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT SIDE”. There was also a table with the title “SCALES OF POPULISM”. According to this table, GOLDEN DAWN is the most anti-systemic political party, while the most systemic parties are New Democracy and PASOK, which is now named KINIMA ALLAGIS. So, it is clear that all the voters pf Golden Dawn are against the system.
The second table was about XENOPHOBIA and NATIONALISM, where Golden Dawn also ranked first, while it also interesting the fact that many people with national ideas, believe that SYRIZA is patriotic political party.
The third table was about the form of the state, where the voters of Golden Dawn prefer a strong national state, anti-liberal. This fact shows that the voters of GOLDEN DAWN unanimously accept all the political views of GOLDEN DAWN.
“What Greeks believe” and Golden Dawn
These tables are the outcome of a major inquiry from the “diaNEOsis” group, under the title “What Greeks believe”. From this inquiry come the following:
“Greeks seem to trust in rates over 50 % only 5 institutions. The University, Armed Forces, Police, Church and the Court. Institutions like the parliament, the media, the government or the political parties are not to be trusted, with rates lower than 15%...Only 1 to 5 Greeks trust “people of different ethnicity” and 1 to 5 “people of different religion”.
There are also interesting details in this inquiry, regarding the media, where 80% of Greeks consider the journalists as corrupted. According to this inquiry, only 1 to 5 Greeks trust “people of different nationality and religion”, contrary to the media propaganda about “anti-racism” and “multi-nationality”.
However, which is the –political party that supports the ideas of 80% of Greek People? GOLDEN DAWN!
