Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can't envision it happening in Greece. I support the Left in Greece, but the reaction to the fascists of the 1970s has mostly righteous, but also in some instances knee-jerk. And it has hurt the left. The vast majority of Greeks do not look fondly on that period, and to a degree Greece is inured from it more than most countries. Greece was not always one of the most left-leaning countries on the continent, not always one of the most Anti-American. There's a reason for what happened. And the reaction to the early 1970s is still strong, and still in play.
