On the 25th of October, anti-fascist activists received intelligence that the suit-and-tie Nazis of the National Policy Institute were staying at the Club Quarters, a hotel near Lafayette Park. Acting on this tip, they were able to enter the hotel and search the 11th thru the 7th floors in an attempt to find their rooms.

NPI had been at a dinner earlier that night and would have been easy to find there, but the intel arrived too late for a raid on their posh meal. Activists were tipped that the Nazis were on the 11th floor, but unfortunately the intelligence lacked room numbers.
The Nazis left no evidence of which rooms they were in, and by the time activists reached the 11th floor all of them were either in their rooms behind locked doors or holed up individually elsewhere in the building. A…

A detailed history of the rise and fall of the Golden Dawn, and the Greek government’s complicity.
Golden Dawn (GD), as we knew it, is over. Their leader N. Michaloliakos is behind bars, along with other prominent members, while those who survived the first purge are facing added charges that emerged a few days after the first arrests. While this was happening, a number of their offices around Greece have closed down, the state funding they received has been stopped, and reports indicate that many of their members (ex or current) are forming lines outside the High Court to testify against the organization. These testimonies are used as key evidence in the legal proceedings, leading among other things to the finding of hidden weapons.

Every so often, a few lay people get it in their heads that they can either adequately debate Chomsky or that they’re able to trap him in a “gotcha” moment. Chomsky is a world-renowned linguist, and that there are people out there who think they can trip him up or expect to get a pat answer out of a few leading questions amuses us to no end. Case in point: this recent talk Chomsky gave at the University of Florida where a 9/11 truther asked him a long-winded, leading question about building seven. I guess it’s because they’ve heard two or three things Chomsky has said that dovetail into their conspiracy theories, but they seem to believe that simply because they agree with a few things Chomsky says, Chomsky must agree with everything they say.
The result is utterly devastating in a way that only a Noam Chomsky beatdown can be:
My favorite line?
“There happen to be a lot of people around who spent an hour on the internet and think they know a lot of physics, but it doesn’t work like that”
The truther who asked the question also put it up on his youtube channel, and he’s predictably baffled by Chomsky’s “shocking” response– which, of course, isn’t shocking at all if you’ve bothered to read any of his books.
