This is what happens when people are scared and angry.
Greek voters have overwhelmingly rejected the harsh austerity imposed on them by their creditors in the European Union. But one of the winners in Sunday's election has a darker agenda – and a willingness to threaten and intimidate those who stand in its way.
Rise of the black shirts
Golden Dawn is more than your standard anti-immigrant far-right party. In the German news magazine Der Spiegel, Greek journalist Xenia Kounalaki describes how black-shirted Golden Dawn toughs have been "policing" immigrant neighborhoods, threatening and beating foreigners.
Kounalaki also relates that after she wrote an article in the Greek newspaper Kathimerini, urging the media not to grant Golden Dawn publicity, she was threatened in a 2,500-word letter on the group's website (Gr). The message, she says? "Watch your back."
Having won an unprecedented 6.9% of the vote, Golden Dawn will have 21 seats in parliament, the first time a far-right party has been represented there since Greece's democracy was restored in 1974. For many Greeks, the rise of the right is a frightening reminder of the authoritarian "Regime of the Colonels".
How scary are these guys?
