Does Golden Dawn sound more intimidating in Greek? Because in English it sounds like a 70's soft rock band.

Heh. Whoops. χρυσή Αυγή. Missed a letter in the copypaste from Translate. No wonder it looked weird.

Still not very badass though.

Here's a fun fact: The German word Kampf comes from the same word as English Camp (both are ultimately from Latin Campus). The borrowing was early enough that the High German constant shift affected it (the pp-pf change, i.e. apfel / apple)

Whoops. Autocorrect owned me there. Consonant is not constant. Fixt.

What is sad is that nobody lifted a finger while Golden Dawn organised attacks against immigrants. But the moment a white boy is killed ? Now they crossed a line.

I'm trying to imagine a scenario where a fascist Greece marches on Bulgaria and the Balkans, then manages to take over most of Europe. Trying, but not succeeding.

You forgot the "chi" at the beginning, and the gamma should be a lambda.

It's pronounced "Hrysi Avli"

It also spells "trouble for Greece."
The only reason they're gaining popularity is because they're smooth talkers and are saying they'll "get rid of the bastards that destroyed the economy" among other things. Their nationalist side is really NOT popular with Greeks as a whole. Greeks typically aren't all that nationalist, and many still have the junta of the 70s, the civil war preceding that, and Nazi rule in the 40s on their minds. Even my dad, who'd typically pretty liberal, has been making noises in support of Golden Dawn. I'm working on him, though. Told him that those that don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it, that these guys are a reincarnation of Hitler, Mussolini, and Metaxas (Metaxas was the head of the Junta) I shut him up pretty quickly with this part, though: "These are the same type of people who killed your father." See, back in 1941, Bulgarian forces, allied with Nazi Germany, came in to my dad's village, rounded up all the men, took them to the schoolyard, and shot them. My dad was 1 year old. The next 20 or so years of his life were spent in abject poverty.

And yet he's too damn blind to see that Golden Dawn wants exactly the same thing to happen again. I sincerely hope that folks realize what these people are before it's too late.
