Greece: Operation "mutation of the Left" has started!

by system failure

It was only two months ago, when Paul Mason made a revelation about the plans of the European financial dictatorship (EFD), concerning SYRIZA in Greece. Through his article Why Greece’s Syriza party is not sticking to the script on an IMF deal, confirmed what lies in the back of the minds of the European plutocracy's puppets:

In the script according to the eurozone, the expected ending is: Syriza splits; finance minister Varoufakis makes good his pledge not to sign a surrender and resigns. A government of the centre-left forms, with Alexis Tsipras now allied to the centrist Potami party and with tacit support from a liberal wing of the New Democracy party. Debt relief happens, but on the terms dictated by the lenders, and Syriza survives to complete its mutation into a centre-left social democratic party.

The plan has already described by this blog in the article The global financial mafia promotes scenario 2 for Greece and the danger for the mutation of SYRIZA into a centre-left social democratic party, even before taking the power, in the article A new attempt to "domesticate" the Left in Greece and earlier in the article A "retouch" operation for the Left .

After recent developments, it seems that everything is progressing according to the schedule so far: Varoufakis was forced to resign from his position and Tsipras retreated under the extreme pressure imposed through direct blackmail by the EFD puppets.

The next step of the plan, will be the removal of SYRIZA's radical part, known as "Left platform". It is the part of SYRIZA which actually gives the Leftist identity to the party. Indeed, SYRIZA now suffers from decomposition trends that came on surface after Tsipras' capitulation with EFD, and the new catastrophic measures that the Greek parliament was called to vote, in order to avoid the sudden death through the ECB brutal economic strangling.

It is characteristic that the Left platform MPs rejected the new measures (32 voted clearly "no"), and the new catastrophic memorandum was passed in the Greek parliament with the votes of Independent Greeks (SYRIZA's partner in the coalition government) and the neoliberal parties Nea Dimokratia, Potami and PASOK!

Tsipras was forced to remove from the government some top executives like Panagiotis Lafazanis and Dimitris Stratoulis. Lafazanis is considered one of the "leaders" of the Left platform and took significant initiatives, from the start, towards the approach with Russia. Zoi Konstantopoulou is considered another member of the Left platform. Konstantopoulou, currently Speaker of the Hellenic Parliament, took significant initiatives towards the public debt audit, an investigation about the conditions under which previous governments signed memorandums with the creditors, and an investigation about major scandals concerning previous governments (i.e. Siemens scandal).

It is not accidental that the oligarchs in Greece declared a separate war on Konstantopoulou, trying to downgrade her role and image through ridiculous stories by the mainstream media. Konstantopoulou has recently brought hard criticism on Tsipras' retreat which led to the new catastrophic memorandum for Greece.

Obviously, the European bureaufascists studied SYRIZA's internal political “geography” very carefully, and one of the reasons that they insisted on catastrophic measures, fully aligned with the German leadership, was to remove the "annoying barrier" of the Left platform, according to the plan.

Tsipras was forced to reshuffle his government, and everyone now in Greece speaks about a temporary scheme towards new national elections in September-October. Then, if Tsipras choose to exclude the Left platform MPs from the elections, bureaufascists will be very close to finish successfuly the operation "mutation of the Left". It will be probably the fastest mutation process for a whole political ideology in history, a total defeat for the Left not only in Greece, but also in Europe.

However, the speed and the violence of this attempt of mutation, shows that the EFD paid an extremely high cost which may lead to its fall. Indeed, Tsipras administration forced EFD to show its real face to the European people and the public opinion has changed towards the support of Greece. Additionally, the strong antitheses emerged inside eurozone, which were hidden under the supposed solid France-German axis. Now that the European citizens realized that Europe became a brutal financial dictatorship, the next crucial phase of the war will be also the elections in Spain and Portugal. Greece can't change Europe alone.

In any case, more people now understand what the mutation of the Left would mean. It would mean that the Left would be absorbed progressively by the dominant neoliberal ideology, exactly as it happened with the Social-democrats in Greece and Europe. It would mean a crucial defeat for the European people in the ongoing class warfare. It would mean the establishment of the new Feudalism.

    Sadly true. I hope the Left Platform can establish itself as the real left alternative, whereas the passokified part of Syriza quickly gets the fate that it deserves. I wouldn't count on a shift in sentiments in Europe to fix the problem; it seems to me that a consciously chosen Grexit (or at least a very great readiness to do one) is the only hope for Greece, and, in general, the only chance for a non-feudal Europe is for the current EU/Eurozone system to be either destroyed or so close to complete destruction as to force the European elites to accept a radically New Deal.

Why the US imperialists will boost their efforts to destabilize China through Xinjiang

globinfo freexchange   One of the biggest "wet dreams" of the US imperialists for decades, especially after the Communist victory in 1949, was to break-up China. Xinjiang was among Chinese territories in which the US and the Western imperialism saw an opportunity to grow internal tensions and create serious destabilization against the Asian giant. As The Grayzone revealed in March, 2020, through an extended report :   In recent years, few stories have generated as much outrage in the West as the condition of Uyghur Muslims in China. Reporting on the issue is typically represented through seemingly spontaneous leaks of information and expressions of resistance by Uyghur human rights activists struggling to be heard against a tyrannical Chinese government. True or not, nearly everything that appears in Western media accounts of China’s Uyghur Muslims is the product of a carefully conceived media campaign generated by an apparatus of right-wing, anti-communist Uyghur

Was bombing of Mariupol theater staged by Ukrainian Azov extremists to trigger NATO intervention?

Testimony by evacuated Mariupol residents and warnings of a false flag attack undermine the Ukrainian government’s claims about a Russian bombing of a local theater sheltering civilians.   by Max Blumenthal  Part 7 - The red line: lessons from Syria Was the bombing of the Donetsk Academic Regional Drama Theater of Mariupol a false flag attack executed by Azov extremists to trigger NATO intervention, as some local residents claimed? If so, it was hardly the first cynical deception deployed by Ukraine’s government to draw the West into the conflict, and was unlikely to be the last. On March 16, the day of the incident at the theater, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken declared that “ we have real concerns that Russia could use a chemical weapon, another weapon of mass destruction. ” In the next breath, Blinken pointed to Syria, where he claimed “ we’ve seen them use or acquiesce to [chemical weapon] use. ” It was in Syria where the administration of President Barack Obama imposed its “

Macron vs Le Pen: The terrible outcome of Left's 1968 disastrous compromise

by system failure   It has become completely normal now for people in the "free" and "democratic" West to vote for the "lesser of two evils". Despite the fact that there is nothing democratic and normal in dirty tactics (which include even internal-party coups) organized by bipartisan dictatorships against real-Leftist candidates, the outcome of this process is now considered the new norm. That is, a neoliberal (pseudo-Left for the US) candidate against an alt-right candidate, which is definitely a win-win situation for the capitalist elites against the working class in every country.   This ugly show is repeated election cycle after election cycle. The elites produce huge amounts of propaganda energy, through their corporate media, to remove any anti-establishment real threats. In the final round, they leave their most favored neoliberal Cinderella to face an alt-right bad witch.   Bad witch's role is to scary the liberal and the Leftist voters in ord

“A historic sham”: Zelensky’s speech to Greece’s parliament sparks national outrage, opens WWII-era wounds

By inviting an Azov fighter to address Greece’s parliament, Zelensky opened the country’s historic wounds and triggered angry demonstrations that have shaken its pro-US government.   by TJ Coles   Part 2 - The CIA guides Greece’s post-war plan to “kill the communists”   In 1936, Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas became a pro-Nazi dictator with the support of King Geórgios II. Metaxas’ death in 1941 bolstered the Greek Communist Party’s (KKE) anti-Nazi resistance. The KKE had established ELAS, the People’s Liberation Army, to fight the occupying Nazis. Until 1943, ELAS was initially trained by the British Special Operations Executive (SOE), a top-secret unit designed to train European paramilitaries. Indicative of the power of Greek leftism, ELAS’s political wing, the National Liberation Front (EAM), boasted 2 million members. The British Foreign Office fought to restore Geórgios II, explicitly citing his anti-left credentials. Working with Cyprus’s fascist battalion X, the Brits set

3 May 2022 and 1119 days in prison for Julian Assange: It's the World Press Freedom Day, yet the greatest journalist of our times is experiencing a slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist tyranny, with the tolerance of the "free" and "democratic" West

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   That Assange, who is in precarious physical and psychological health and who suffered a stroke during court video proceedings, has been condemned to death should not come as a surprise. The ten years he has been detained, seven in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and three in the

The US cries about war crimes while imprisoning a journalist for exposing its war crimes

by Caitlin Johnstone   In what his lawyers have described as a “brief but significant moment in the case,” a British magistrates’ court has signed off on Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States, bringing the WikiLeaks founder one step closer to a US trial under the Espionage Act which threatens press freedoms worldwide. The extradition case now goes to UK Home Secretary Priti Patel for approval, which will likely be forthcoming as Patel is a reliably loyal empire manager. After that point, Assange’s legal team will be able to launch an appeal. This is happening at the same time the United States and the United Kingdom are loudly demanding accountability for alleged war crimes by the Russian military in Ukraine, which is interesting because attempting to bring accountability for war crimes is precisely why Julian Assange is in prison. “He is a war criminal,” President Biden said of Vladimir Putin following allegations of war crimes in Bucha, Ukraine earlier this month. “I thin

The ouster of Imran Khan: How much involvement did the US have in Pakistan’s coup?

Imran Khan joins the long list of deposed prime ministers and underscores the reality that, in Pakistan, whoever the people elect, the U.S.-backed military is always in charge. by Alan Macleod  Part 3 - Why would the US want Khan gone? Pakistan has, historically, had a close relationship with the United States, especially militarily. Between 2002 and 2018, the U.S. gave $33 billion worth of assistance to Pakistan, of which more than $14 billion was military aid. Its armed forces are stocked with the best American gear and its officers are trained in the United States. Pakistan was also a key player in the U.S. occupation of neighboring Afghanistan, with successive administrations allowing the U.S. military to conduct operations from its territory. The result was a humanitarian disaster for the country; an estimated 83,000 Pakistanis lost their lives as a consequence of the War on Terror. Khan, who had long opposed U.S. actions in the region, sharply reduced the nation’s involvement in

How the organized Left got Covid wrong, learned to love lockdowns and lost its mind: an autopsy

It is hard to destroy your own cause and feel righteous while doing so, yet the American left has done it. After more than two centuries at the vanguard of the struggle for freedom, the American left, broadly defined, executed a volte face and embraced anti-working-class policies marketed as purely technical public health measures.   by Christian Parenti   Part 5 - Inflated Death Count?   The Western left justifies its embrace of mandates, lockdowns, and censorship by invoking the dead. The US has the highest reported death rate per hundred thousand of any developed economy. As a friend protested “ but, the deaths are real! ” Indeed, but how many are actually due to Covid? The CDC reports that less than 6 percent of Covid deaths had COVID-19 as “ the only cause mentioned on the death certificate. ” The other 94 percent of deaths occurred “ with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19 ” and, on average, had “ 4.0 additional conditions or causes per death. ”  The death of 84-year-ol

The NATO to TikTok pipeline: Why is TikTok employing so many national security agents?

TikTok has become an enormously influential medium that reaches over one billion people worldwide. Having control over its algorithm or content moderation means the ability to set the terms of global debate and decide what people see. And what they don’t. by Alan Macleod  Part 3 - Not just NATO NATO, however, is far from the only organization newly connected to TikTok. The company’s new Global Lead of Integrity and Authenticity, Chris Roberts, is a former senior director of Technology Policy at the Albright Stonebridge Group (ASG), a powerhouse strategy and consulting firm started by late-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. The ASG has been perhaps the major staffing source for President Biden’s administration, with at least 10 ASG employees appointed to key positions in national security, state and foreign policy positions. Before ASG, Roberts worked, in his own words, on “special projects” for the National Democratic Institute (NDI). The NDI was founded by the Reagan administratio
