Who cooperates with SYRIZA? - Article by N.G. Michaloliakos
A reply to the dirty propaganda of New Democracy
Just a few days ago the former minister of New Democracy and sister of its current president, Dora Bakoyannis, said that in the summer of 2015 N.D. was ready to co-govern with SYRIZA. None of the party's main officials of the time has denounced this statement.
And it was in the summer of 2015 that New Democracy voted for the third memorandum together with SYRIZA, while Golden DAWN voted NO! And they have the audacity to say that we are cooperating with SYRIZA, while for two whole days (April 20-21, 2019) SYRIZA's state television broadcast slander shows against GOLDEN DAWN from morning till evening.
New Democracy, however, continues the dirty propaganda against GOLDEN DAWN, at the same time that the Nationalist Movement is literally under persecution by the SYRIZA regime. There’s exclusion from all channels, both from those controlled by SYRIZA as well as those controlled by N.D., there are terrorist attacks on the offices and houses of our members, but there have been no arrests...
However, let’s examine some other concrete facts, apart from N.D. voting for the memorandum of SYRIZA in 2015, concerning the cases when SYRIZA fully cooperated with New Democracy, which has the audacity to accuse GOLDEN DAWN of working with ... SYRIZA!
SYRIZA and ND together support the legalization and the voting rights of the illegal immigrants that have illegally entered the country. They have unanimously accepted the abolition of the religious oath, the reduction of the military service and the infamous civil partnership, while it is known that they have also voted for the construction of an Islamic mosque in Athens.
And these are not the only issues, since the main thing upon which SYRIZA fully agreed with New Democracy when Samaras was governing along with Venizelos, and New Democracy continues to agree with SYRIZA today, is the persecution of GOLDEN DAWN. Together they voted for the waiver of immunity and they were perfectly in agreement for the pre-trial detention of elected MPs for the first time since 1974. Together they set up the political conspiracy.
Lastly, we have the recent issue of the Prespa agreement, for which New Democracy may have voted against in Parliament, but they have declared that if they become government they will not abolish it! Also, during the debates that took place in Parliament, New Democracy did not say a word about the compound name, but only tried to keep up the pretense by muttering some sophistries about ethnicity and language, while it is obvious that a name that contains the term “Macedonia”, which New Democracy accepts, is inevitably a recognition of ethnicity and language, as well.
New Democracy lies about the cooperation of GOLDEN DAWN with SYRIZA and sets the blackmailing dilemma to the citizens that only by voting for N.D. will SYRIZA go away, in an attempt to stop the rise of GOLDEN DAWN. It will not succeed because the Greek Patriots know very well that only the Nationalists can stop Bolshevism, not the liberals, not the various Kerensky, who have always been their companions. Besides, it is well known that in the Greece of the political transition, the left thrived with the blessings of New Democracy.
