Greek ultra-nationalist blogs target LGBT rights activist who also stands against antisemitism

On the aftermath of the approval of same-sex civil partnerships by the Greek Parliament, many ultra-nationalistic websites published violent diatribes against the LGBT Community in Greece and those who voted in favor of the bill.

One of these websites, antipliroforisi.blogspot.com, suggested in a recent blog post that the same-sex civil partnerships have been instigated by “the Zionists”. The author of the post, who signs as “Sigma”, particularly targets Aristeidis Paraskakis, LGBT rights activist who also stands against antisemitism, accusing him of being “a Jew” serving foreign interests.

The collage of photos included in this abusive and inciting post show the activist being part of the audience assisting at the plenary session for the approval of the afore mentioned law act, wearing a kippah or holding Rainbow and Israeli flags during a demonstration. The photos are accompanied by an inscription which states: “Aristeidis Paraskakis, the Jewish organizer of Gay Pride and obviously the Jews are secretly backing him.”

Sigma also targets all those who supported or voted for the same-sex partnerships. Sigma’s inciting remarks include “they’re all Greek-speaking Janissaries” and “we should get rid of them.”

Antipliroforisi blog runs a Facebook page with more than 3.300 likes. It regularly publishes posts implying that Jewish people control everything in the world or even denying the Shoah.
