Last time we caught up with Ilias Kasidiaris, Greek MP and spokesman for the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, he was assaulting a woman on a TV debate show for not agreeing with him. Today, he apparently caused a scene in parliament during a debate with the center-left PASOK party, part of the governing coalition, calling former Prime Minsiter George Papandreou "only 25 percent Greek" and accused a senior defense ministry official of having humiliated the country. (Papandreo’s mother was American and one of his great grandparents on his father’s side was Polish.)
When a PASOK spokeman accused Kasidiaris of spouting "fascist trash" and running paramilitary assault squads to attack immigrants, Gold Dawn MPs began shouting and the session was suspended.
