Letters: Don’t sit by and watch

Remembrance Day is a special day for commemorating those who died

Here we go again! When a country is in economic strife, a group of people get together and decide there has to be someone to blame. It can’t be the politicians that we voted in and trusted with our money, it must be the foreigners we invited into our country and made citizens. It is their fault so lets round them up and kill them.

No matter how you slice it, shine it up, the Greek Golden Dawn Party is no different from the Nazi’s of the 20’s who started off with bullying and scare tactics. We all know how that went, or do we? Did we just not have a special day commemorating all those who died for our freedoms and yet here we are again looking at the same garbage again.

How long are we going to stand around and watch these goose- stepping morons with their high handed salute use threats and scare tactics, use uniformed propaganda, and start another holocaust.

Is not our motto on Nov. 11 “never again?” To allow these people even to exist in Canada is wrong. Period.

I am usually a pacifist when it come to politics, war and religion, but this is not a political party, it is a racist party born of hate and cruelty. Do we not have laws against racism? Maybe these people should take a hard look at themselves because when you are pointing blame there are always three fingers pointing back.

This time we can not sit idly by and watch as this unfolds. The world must act and stop these people before they can get going.

All the Greek ministers in their caucus who raised their hands in  “Nazi” salute should be kicked out and banished. How can our own politicians (Canadian and U.S.) sit by and watch this and not be condemning them? Failing  to act would be the same as condoning.

I guess we really haven’t learned a thing, have we?
