Greek Teabaggers Riot Over ObamaCare, Killing Three

Video of these damn Teabaggers at the link.

They were protesting ObamaCare, illegal immigrants in Arizona, the impending loss of a white majority in the United States, and also, as a secondary matter, austerity measures forced upon the profligate nation as part of its bailout package.

Deadly riots over new austerity measures engulfed the streets of Athens on Wednesday, and three people were killed as angry protesters tried to storm parliament, hurled Molotov cocktails at police and torched buildings.

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets as part of nationwide strikes to protest new taxes and government spending cuts demanded by the International Monetary Fund and other European nations before heavily indebted Greece gets a euro110 billion ($141 billion) bailout package of loans to keep it from defaulting.

Three people died after being trapped in a burning bank along the main demonstration route in central Athens—the first deaths during a protest in Greece since 1991, when four people trapped in a burning office building were killed. Another five were rescued.

“A demonstration is one thing and murder is quite another,” Prime Minister George Papandreou thundered in Parliament during a session to discuss the spending cuts he announced Sunday. "We need to get these lunatic right-wing Tea-Bags to stop using incendiary language, and also, possibly, incendiary bombs."

I may have added that last sentence.

Thanks to Dr. Spank.
