38 Syriza party members voted “NO” as they were supposed to. Yet, Tsipras and the opposition parties who had imposed austerity on the people of Greece got what they wanted; they passed the latest austerity plan in spite of it’s brutal nature and massive resistance to it from the people. For all practical purposes, Greece is now a German colony being run by the masters of the universe through their fascist Troika team. For us here and a few other sites across the interwebs, this is not a shock.We’ve been saying that Tsipras and the “rock star” finance minister were sheepdipped neoliberals in leftist clothing for months and that the only way out for the Greek people was going to be for them to have their own Tahrir Square moment when their rage against being duped like they were grew out of control.
Only a few questions remain:
- How long will they last?
- How much popular support will join them?
- When will Tsipras show his true nature and turn violent against them?
- Will the media even cover it or try to ignore it like they did the first week of Tahrir?

“If we define an American fascist as one who in case of conflict puts money and power ahead of human beings, then there are undoubtedly several million fascists in the United States. There are probably several hundred thousand if we narrow the definition to include only those who in their search for money and power are ruthless and deceitful.” The Danger of American Fascism, Henry A. Wallace, 1944
