Update from a reader:

I don't think the EU is responsible for Ilias Kasidiaris' assholery on live Greek TV. It has more to do with the fact that he's in a party (Golden Dawn) that makes use of confrontational assholery to make a name for itself and to further its agenda. They'd be doing this even if the EU didn't exist (which I wish it never did.) I realize confrontational violence in Greek politics isn't unusual, but the Golden Dawn fascists have made it an integral part of their organizing.
